If winning a seventh Wimbledon title wasn't motivation enough for Roger Federer, it comes with the chance of returning to world No. 1 for the first time in more than two years.
When Federer turned 30 last August, he was repeatedly forced to brush off claims his career was in decline and he was considering hanging up his racket, yet less than 12 months later he is in contention to return to the top of the pile for a third time. He has been in good form this season, and will be desperate to end a 29-month wait for a 17th slam. Federer is 9/2 to win with bet365.
Fancy a dark horse? Milos Raonic could well cause an upset or two at Wimbledon. It is almost certainly a case of when, not if, he breaks into the top ten. His only previous appearance at SW19 ended in injury last year. With a monstrous serve, and his dark curly locks, there are echoes of seven-time champion Sampras in the Canadian. He took Federer to three sets in Halle last week. Could be well worth a flutter at 33/1 with bet365.
