Wimbledon Free Bets
The Wimbledon tennis tournament is one of the four Grand Slam events held every year and first took place in 1877. It's the only one that is held on grass and is widely regarded as the most famous tennis event of all and the one every player wants to win. It usually takes place in June but has now been moved to the first two weeks of July in order to create a longer gap between the French Open and Wimbledon.
The 2019 Wimbledon Championships will take place between July 1 and 14 with Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber defending their titles.
England are 4/6 at Bet365 to beat Australia in the Third Test at Headingley.
2019 Wimbledon Championships
The 2019 Wimbledon Champions (the third Grand Slam of the year) take place between Monday July 1 and Sunday July 14. The world's top players will be heading to London hoping to win the biggest tournament in the world. Novak Djokovic will be defending the title he won last year and the current world number one is 8/11 at Ladbrokes to retain his title (odds correct at midnight July 7).
Roger Federer is the joint second favourite and you can back him at odds of 7/2 at BetVictor. Rafael Nadal hasn't won this title since 2010 but reached the last four in 2018. He's 7/2 at William Hill to win his second Grand Slam in a row after his annual victory in France.
The current favourite for the women's title is Ashleigh Barty who won the recent French Open in Paris. The Australian is available at 5/2 with Bet365 (18+ T&Cs apply).
Serena Williams hasn't been in winning form but can never be dismissed at Wimbledon. You can get odds of 5/1 at Unibet on her winning another title. Johanna Konta is England's best hope of a singles title this year. She reached the semi-final in Paris and she's 12/1 at Coral to win her first Wimbledon title.

How to claim your free bet on Wimbledon
As with most major tennis betting events, a lot of bookmakers introduce Wimbledon money-back specials whereby bookies refund losing bets as free bets on Wimbledon depending on different scenarios. Examples of previous Wimbledon specials include offers to refund losing pre-match bets if the final point of a particular match is an Ace, bets refunded if your pre-match selection loses in five sets or money back on outright bets if a pre-selected player wins the tournament.
It is always worth investigating which bookmakers are offering theses promotions, that way there is an opportunity to bet with a greater sense of security on your bet.
More than any other tennis tournament in the calendar Wimbledon bets are usually put on by the patriotic punters to back the latest British hope. In the past it was Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski, now the burden of hope and expectation rests on the shoulders of Andy Murray. With two Wimbledon titles to his name already, the Scot has proven he has what it takes so regardless of any national allegiance he's worth taking in to account when your betting on the Wimbledon winner.
Why Is Wimbledon So Popular?
Probably due to the pantomime of some of the stuffy rules and regulations that have gone hand in hand with Wimbledon over the years including a strict dress code for competitors, fans eating a punnet of strawberries, Royal spectators as well as some of the biggest celebrity fans.The tournament is also notable for the absence of sponsor advertising around the courts.
The actual title for the competition is 'The Championships, Wimbledon' but many just call it 'Wimbledon' or SW19 of the All-England Club the post-code and venue of the courts used.
The Championships take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club annually for two weeks at the end of June and beginning of July. Often referred to simply as SW19 the All-England club is a private members club and is the only venue that insists that the players wear all white attire throughout the event.
Wimbledon is the crown jewel of the tennis calendar and has become an event synonymous with the British summer time. Not since Fred Perry in 1936 had a Briton won the Wimbledon men’s title before Andy Murray swept to victory in 2013. But those years of waiting (and often rain) has never dampened the locals’ enthusiasm for this fortnight-long event.
Following the completion of the five major competitions, the winners are presented with the traditional Wimbledon trophies. Having had to replace both the Field Cup in 1883 and the Challenge Cup in 1886, the All England Club decided that future trophies should no longer become property of the Championship winners, who would instead receive a replica of the trophy whilst the originals were housed in the Wimbledon museum.
For the men’s singles winners the trophy was a silver gilt cup engraved with the words "The All England Lawn Tennis Club Single Handed Champion of the World" and inscribed with the name of winners dating back to 1877. In 2009, when there was no more room for the names of future Wimbledon Champions, the addition of a black plinth adorned with a silver band was incorporated so that more names could be commemorated.
Roger Federer's victory in 2017 saw him move on to eight titles in total which is the most of any player in the championship's history. Nobody enjoys the two weeks in SW19 quite like Federer and despite his advancing years, the Swiss legend remains a formidable force.

For the women's singles winners the trophy is a sterling silver salver, known as the 'Rosewater Dish', which was first introduced in 1886, and for each of the doubles tournaments a silver challenge cup is presented to the winners.
Whilst the coveted trophies were highly prized it wasn’t until 1968 that prize money was awarded at Wimbledon. This was also the first year that the Club allowed professional players to compete. However, surprisingly it was only as recently as 2007 that the prize money for men and women became equal! As you can see below, there is quite a difference between today’s prize money and that received by the winners in 1968!
Serena Williams has been the dominant force at the All England club in the modern-era as can be seen from the list of former champions.
