[Infographic] 2013 Wimbledon Championship

The strawberries are out and the cream drizzling – it must be Wimbledon and for the tennis world’s elite performers there’s no greater stage to show off their talents than SW19.

World number one Novak Djokovic has once won this illustrious title and may face 2012 victor Roger Federer in the final this season. Federer could land a record eighth title this summer to push one ahead of Pete Sampras but is a 4/1 outsider to do so.

A strong 5/1 outsider in the women’s draw, meanwhile, is Maria Sharapova. The Russian hasn’t won this event since clinching glory as a 17-year-old in 2004 and is a long way off Martina Navratilova’s haul of nine Wimbledon trophies.

Sharapova must overcome predicted opponent Serena Williams in the final, who is 2/5 favourite and primed to win a fourth Grand Slam in five. The American is on a 32-match winning streak and certainly the player to beat this year.
