Andy Murray will be the crowd favourite as usual, and the world No. 1 and top seed is +357. But the Russian-born Kazakh is an unpredictable showman who beat Lucas Pouille in the opening round of the Australian Open.

Bublik is a 20-year-old Russian-born Kazakhstani who turned professional just three years ago and makes the main Wimbledon draw for the first time.

The Scot, who is bidding to win Wimbledon for a third time, was drawn in the same half as two-time champion Rafael Nadal, with three-times victor Novak Djokovic and seven-times champion Roger Federer placed in the bottom half.

Nadal didn't give away the opportunity to win another Wimbledon title. I would pick Nadal if he passes the first week.

Britain's Johanna Konta is sixth, while two-time champion Petra Kvitova, who on Sunday won her first title since sustaining career-threatening injuries in a stabbing, is 11th.

No Canadian male or female has won Wimbledon.
