Betting favorites for Wimbledon

With title favorite and No. 1 seed Jannik Sinner gone, defending champion Carlos Alcaraz becomes the pick to win the men's trophy, listed at +120, just ahead of Novak Djokovic at +150, according to BetMGM Sportsbook. Djokovic is at -350 to beat Alex de Minaur (+240) in the quarterfinals. Elena Rybakina, the 2022 champion, is an even bigger favorite now to take the women's championship at +150, followed by Jasmine Paolini, the runner-up at the French Open last month, who is listed at +333.

Who plays at Wimbledon on Wednesday?

Novak Djokovic will be back at Centre Court and it will be fascinating to see how the crowd reacts to him after he told spectators he thought some of them showed him “disrespect” during his previous match. Djokovic will be attempting to reach his 49th career Grand Slam semifinal, extending his own record, while his opponent, No. 9 seed Alex de Minaur, has never been that far at a major. Djokovic has won seven of his 24 Slam trophies at Wimbledon, while Wednesday's match will be de Minaur's first trip beyond the fourth round at the All England Club. The other men's quarterfinal on Wednesday is No. 13 Taylor Fritz vs. No. 25 Lorenzo Musetti. The remaining women's quarterfinals are 2022 champion Elena Rybakina against No. 21 Elina Svitolina, and No. 13 Jelena Ostapenko against No. 31 Barbora Krejcikova. Ostapenko-Krejcikova, a matchup of past French Open champions, gets things started at No. 1 Court at 1 p.m. (1200 GMT, 8 a.m. EDT), while Rybakina-Svitolina begins at Centre Court a half-hour later. 

What happened at Wimbledon on Tuesday?

Daniil Medvedev eliminated No. 1 seed Jannik Sinner, who was feeling sick, in five sets, and defending champion Carlos Alcaraz beat Tommy Paul in four sets. That sets up a rematch in the semifinals from last year, when Alcaraz defeated Medvedev. In the women's semifinals, Donna Vekic will meet French Open runner-up Jasmine Paolini. Vekic got past Lulu Sun in three sets, while Paolini needed last than an hour to dismiss Emma Navarro in two.
