Novak Djokovic will take the court for second-round action at Wimbledon Wednesday, and bettors have continued to back the Serbian native.
Wimbledon odds have him -125 to win the entire tournament going into the match.
Djokovic defeated Kwon Soon-woo in first-round action. The two split the first two sets 6-3 before Djokovic won set three 6-3 and set four 6-4. After his opening-round victory, Djokovic will take on Thanasi Kokkinakis in second-round.

Rafael Nadal, the No. 2 seed, will play second-round action on Thursday morning against Ricardas Berankis. Nadal handled business in the first round, facing Francisco Cerundolo and beating the Argentinian 6-4, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.
If the bracket continues on a chalk trajectory, Djokovic and Nadal could face off in the final, which would undoubtedly draw plenty of eyeballs.
Djokovic opened the tournament, owning the best odds to win at +100, which has already increased to -125 before the second round kicks off. Nadal holds the second-highest odds after recording a first-round victory, seeing his opening odds rise from +1000 to +650.
The third player with odds above +1000 is Carlos Alcaraz, who opened the tournament at +3300 and has seen plenty of line movement already, increasing to +800. Alcaraz is the fifth seed and survived a first-round scare against German Jan-Lennard Struff.
That performance didn’t inspire confidence, but he’s still someone to watch ahead of his second-round matchup against Tallon Griekspoor. Stefanos Tsitsipas picked up a first-round victory and will take on Jordan Thompson on Thursday in second-round action. Tsitsipas owns odds of +1400 after opening at +1000.
Rounding out the top five in current odds is Nick Kyrgios, who opened the tournament at +3300 and is currently sitting at +1600 after defeating Paul Jubb in the first round.
The tickets for Wimbledon have seen nearly 50% go towards two players. Nadal currently has the highest ticket percentage at 25.4%, while Djokovic is slightly behind at 23.9%. Alcaraz owns 8% of tickets, followed by Hubert Hurkacz with 6%, and Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime with 5.3%.
In terms of the money, a large portion has gone towards Djokovic, who holds 62.8% of the handle, followed by Nadal with 17.4%.
