What is the prize-money this year?

The total prize-money for Wimbledon 2024 has been confirmed, and this year it hits all the records. Since last year the prize amount has increased by 11.9%, totalling up to £50 million.

Both men and women single winners will receive £2.7 million, while the runner-up will take home £1.4 million. Quarter-finalists and semi-finalists will earn £375,000 and £715,000, respectively.

As for the early rounds, players competing in the first round will earn £60,000. This amount goes up as players move on with rounds. So players get £93,000 in the second round, £143,000 for the third round and fourth-round contenders will be awarded a prize pot of £226,000.

 

Who won last year’s men’s and women’s Wimbledon?

Last year, Carlos Alcaraz defeated Novak Djokovic in an epic duel, securing his second Grand Slam title after the 2022 US Open triumph. Alcaraz became the third-youngest man to lift the Wimbledon trophy, thus creating history.

Markéta Vondroušová also made history at Wimbledon 2023, becoming the first unseeded woman to win the tournament. She claimed her first Grand Slam championship by defeating Ons Jabeur in the final with a straight-sets victory.

 

How to bet on Wimbledon 2024

To bet on Wimbledon 2024 you need to take into account several factors.

- Knowledge is power – Do your research by swotting up on recent forms, historical Wimbledon data, and player profiles.

- Know the favourites – Don’t blindly follow the favourites as this may cloud judgement when betting on Wimbledon 2024. Fans often back underdogs, but it's wise to stay objective and avoid this bias.

- Know the court – The grass court at Wimbledon demands players with powerful serves and agility. Some players might be out of form, but the best often excel here. Thus, head-to-head data is often surplus to requirements when predicting winners at Wimbledon.

- Examine the market – Outright winner markets offer bigger payouts. After thorough research, you should have an idea of the Men's and Women's Wimbledon 2024 winners. Back them before the tournament starts for better odds and potentially higher payouts.

 

Men’s Wimbledon 2024 – Top contenders

With Novak Jokovic still recovering from knee surgery, the picture is a bit cloudy on the men’s side. But defending champion Carlos Alcaraz is a worthy favourite.

Here are the top contenders for men's singles for this season. Stay connected for a wide range of Wimbledon 2024 betting markets for men's matches at VBET.

Carlos Alcaraz

Alcaraz’s success at Wimbledon may have come as a surprise in 2023, but in 2024 it will not. The Spaniard entered the last season with just six grasscourt matches to his name but he took home the big trophy in some style.

Now he is one of the best players and this year Alcaraz will have a target on his back, even if Jannik Sinner is the top seed.

Jannik Sinner

Sinner went seven-two on grass last year and impressively reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon. Many believe he has the game better suited to grass than Alcaraz, but he hasn’t quite blossomed on the surface yet.

A potential final between Sinner and Alcaraz would mark the first Grand Slam final between the two rivals. We should note here, though, that Sinner defeated Alcaraz on grass in the Round of 16 at Wimbledon in 2022. So this match, if possible, will be iconic.

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic, a 24-time Grand Slam champion and seven-time Wimbledon winner, is an indisputable grass court legend. He just had knee surgery, though, raising fears about his levels of fitness.

Even if he is not fully firing, Djokovic can still win Wimbledon

Daniil Medvedev

Medvedev is ranked fifth in the world and his star continues to shine. The Russian has rather struggled at Wimbledon, but he did well to reach the semi-finals last year and is clearly developing a game more suitable to a grass surface.

The 2021 US Open winner will be a danger to anyone if he is in the right frame of mind.


Women’s Wimbledon 2024 – Top Contenders:

Here are the top Wimbledon 2024 favourites for the women’s singles. You can follow their progress and get the most up-to-date odds for women’s matches at VBET.

Iga Swiatek

Iga Sviatek has had some problems on the grass, but maybe this year she’ll see an improvement. Sviatek may not be the clear-cut favourite this year but she did reach the quarters last year.

Her beefed-up serve could open up her option on the grass in 2024, but she needs to show greater levels of consistency.

Elena Rybakina

Rybakina is the former 2022 Wimbledon champion and her game is perfectly suited for grass court. Her playing style, powerful groundstrokes and aggression will help her move forward in this tournament.

She is more confident after winning the US Open last year and should be treated as one of the top contenders.

Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff burst onto the scene by defeating Venus Williams at Wimbledon in 2019, making headlines worldwide. An all-court player with exceptional movement and a powerful forehand, Gauff has proven her prowess since her professional debut in 2018.

She may be young, but she is a dangerous challenger for the crown, having won seven WTA Tour singles titles. Keep an eye on this budding star as she continues to impress on the court.

Naomi Osaka

Naomi Osaka is one of the top-seeded players, renowned for her powerful strokes and booming serve. As a four-time major champion, with two US Open and two Australian Open titles, she is a force to be reckoned with. At Wimbledon, she has previously reached the third round and is aiming for a deeper run this year.
