Wimbledon may still be a few months away but there is already intense excitement for the men’s tournament in particular.

Who Will Be the 2023 Men’s Wimbledon Champion?

We may have already seen one of the two finest players ever to set foot on a court break the record for Grand Slam titles by then – and Wimbledon could be the next chance to even up the score.

Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic will surely feature in many people’s best Wimbledon bets. But can anyone else upset the odds and claim the prestigious title for themselves? We are going to take a look at the chances of those two tennis greats, as well as some of the other contenders for the crown this July.

Novak Djokovic

Regarded by many as the best men’s tennis player of all time, Novak Djokovic will return to the hallowed courts of south-west London this summer as the favorite to win his eighth Wimbledon title and equal the record set by the great Roger Federer. It could also help him equal or set the record for Grand Slam victories.

No other male player has won at Wimbledon since Federer claimed his last title in 2017, and few believe that anyone but the giant Serb will be raising the famous gold trophy aloft this year. What will make things even more interesting is the ongoing battle between Djokovic and Nadal for the Grand Slam record.

Rafa Nadal

Rafa will not be playing this year due to an injury. He has said that 2024 will likely be his last year on tour.

Carlos Alcaraz

If Nadal is unlikely to win many more Grand Slam titles after a hugely successful career, there is another young Spanish tennis player that could take over the crown in the years ahead. Carlos Alcaraz has already been ranked number one in the world, even though he only turned 20 at the beginning of May.

Much has been hoped of Alcaraz since he was a very young tennis sensation and he finally won his first major last year when he beat Casper Ruud in the US Open. He has only ever gotten as far as the fourth round at Wimbledon though, so managing to better that and beat Djokovic might be asking too much this year.

Daniil Medvedev

After missing a chunk of the season last year through injury, Daniil Medvedev has begun 2023 in blistering form. He won three titles in three weeks in February and March and recorded his 3,000th career win at the Madrid Open at the start of May. If anyone might cause an upset at Wimbledon, it could be the Russian.

Medvedev was unable to compete at the championships last summer after Russian and Belarusian players were banned due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He should be back this summer though and will be hoping to better his best ever performance of reaching the fourth round in 2021.

Matteo Berrettini

This Italian tennis player only turned professional in 2015 but he has already shown his talent on a range of different surfaces – and that makes him the ideal candidate to come through and surprise everyone at Wimbledon this summer. He hasn’t enjoyed the best of seasons so far, but he does have pedigree on grass.

Berrettini lost to Novak Djokovic in the 2021 Wimbledon final and has also gone as far as the semifinals at the Australian Open. Although he is considered an all-court player it is clear that his preferred surface is grass and he will fancy his chances of going far in this year’s competition – especially if he receives a top seeding.
