Two tennis legends are looking to make history at Wimbledon 2021. Novak Djokovic has a real chance to tie the mark for most Grand Slam wins, while Roger Federer is attempting to hold the all-time record by himself.

Federer and Rafael Nadal rank first with 20 career Grand Slam championships. Djokovic is right on their heels with 19 Grand Slams of his own. Nadal isn’t competing at the All England Club.

The betting odds suggest that Djokovic is more likely than not to make it a three-way tie for the Grand Slam record. The world’s No. 1 ranked player is given a better chance than the entire field with -170 odds to be the men’s Wimbledon winner, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Djokovic beat Jack Draper in his first match of the tournament Monday.

Federer is among Djokovic’s chief competitors, though he isn’t considered the top challenge to the defending champion. Both Federer and Matteo Berrettini have +1200 odds to win the tournament. Sandwiched in between them and Djokovic is Daniil Medvedev, who is the second favorite with +700 odds.

Federer is set to meet France’s Adrian Mannarino in the first round.

Federer won his last Wimbledon championship in 2017, and he hasn’t won a Grand Slam since his first-place finish at the 2018 Australian Open. Djokovic defeated Federer to win Wimbledon 2019 in the longest final match of the tournament’s history.

Wimbledon 2020 was canceled because of the pandemic.

Djokovic also defeated Federer in the Wimbledon finals in 2014 and 2015. Since 2003, only one Wimbledon final hasn’t featured either Federer or Djokovic.

Federer has eight career Wimbledon championships, including five straight from 2003-2007. Djokovic has won the title in four of the last six tries.

After taking home this year’s Australian Open and French Open championships, Djokovic has won seven of the last 11 Grand Slams.
