I just don't know if they can do it consistently.

See how to watch the draw below.

For the first time in a number of years, the big four - Murray, Djokovic, Federer & Nadal - make up the top four seeds, meaning if all goes to script we'll end up with the dream semi-final line-up with arguably four of the greatest players to have ever played the sport. Providing he is OK, Murray should not be troubled too much before the fourth round, where Nick Kyrgios, the colorful Australian, could be waiting. Raonic had defeated Federer during last year's semi-final before losing to eventual victor Andy Murray in the final.

But Federer, favourite to land a record eighth Wimbledon title, still thinks that Murray - if fit - will be a major player.

Nadal back in the hunt?

'With a new baby on its way, I would think he would take some time off after Wimbledon, drop out of the hard-court season and get all sorted, ' Wilander told ESPN. Hulking Marin Cilic (+1600) is the smart high-payoff pick within that quarter of the draw.

As well as his fitness worries, 30-year-old Murray is desperately short of game time on grass having lost in the first round to Jordan Thompson at Queen's Club last Tuesday.

The Spaniard, who starts against John Millman, did not even play 12 months ago due to a wrist injury and he was philosophical about his prospects over the next fortnight. Nadal, 31, should have little trouble on his way to the last 16.

Nadal is the fourth seed in his quest to complete the third French Open-Wimbledon title double of his career.

Dream third title for Kvitova?

Federer, 35, enters as the third seed and has +200 odds of winning the title.

No Canadian male or female has won Wimbledon.

In women's singles betting action at Wimbledon, Petra Kvitova leads the way at +500, ahead of Karolina Pliskova at +550, and Garbine Muguruza at +900.

The Spanish great is cautiously optimistic about his prospects, as long as he can survive the early rounds.

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams, seeded 10th in her 20th appearance at the tournament, was drawn to face Elise Mertens of Belgium in the first round. Belgium's Elise Mertens, ranked No. 56, is her first opponent.

Fifth seed Stan Wawrinka has been in excellent form in 2017, making it to the semi-finals of the Australian Open and the final at Roland Garros.

If live match broadcasts are not available in your country, then you should probably pay a visit to bet365, who will be live streaming all Wimbledon matches for customers with funded accounts.
