Canadians at Wimbledon: Players, odds and history

Canada has never crowned a Wimbledon champion but they have come close on a couple of occasions and will be hoping that their representatives do themselves justice at the All England Club this season.

Eugenie Bouchard was runner-up to Petra Kvitova in the women’s singles in 2014 while Milos Raonic played second fiddle to Andy Murray in the men’s event in 2016.

Bianca Andreescu remains the only player hailing from the country to have lifted a Grand Slam singles title following her shock US Open triumph in 2019 and she has refound some form, offering hope of a bold showing.

Leylah Fernandez is the highest ranked Canadian women, standing at world number 30, while all focus in the men’s draw will revolve around Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov.

We have assessed the chances of the Canucks that have made the Wimbledon main draw and analysed their past performances in London.

Felix Auger-Aliassime (+8000)

At world number 17, Auger-Aliassime is the best Canadian player on the ATP Tour and the 23-year-old will be hoping he can put his best foot forward at Wimbledon.

The Montreal man is a former Grand Slam semi-finalist, having made the final four at the US Open in 2021, and he was a Wimbledon quarter-finalist in that same season.

He has been beaten in the opening round on his last two visits to Wimbledon but last year was one to forget for the Canadian whereas he has been playing some good stuff this season.

Auger-Aliassime made the third round at the Australian Open and went one better to the fourth round of the French equivalent.

The 23-year-old finished runner-up to Andrey Rublev in a Masters 1000 event in Madrid at the beginning of May and that is one of his best performances for some time. 

He is a five-time winner on the ATP Tour and +8000 to make his Grand Slam breakthrough at Wimbledon.

Denis Shapovalov (+10000)

Shapovalov is currently massively underachieving at world number 117 but it would be dangerous to underestimate him given he was a Wimbledon semi-finalist in 2021 and is a former world number 10.

The 25-year-old thrives on these grass courts, having also made the fourth round last season, and in time he should soon begin to climb back up the rankings.

The positive for Shapovalov supporters is that the pressure is now off and he still has time on his side to rediscover his peak performance. Being unseeded should also allow him to go and express himself.

The Israeli-born Canadian has made two further Grand Slam quarter-finals appearances and  his aggressive, high-risk ground game means he can topple anyone on the ATP Tour when on-song.

That said, one ATP Tour title which came in Stockholm in 2019 is not a good enough return for someone of his ability and it is easy to see why he is priced at +10000.

Bianca Andreescu (+5000)

Injuries have derailed the career of Andreescu since her 2019 US Open victory but the 24-year-old is showing signs of a resurgence and could be a lively Wimbledon outsider.

Andreescu has yet to go beyond the third round in four previous attempts in the Wimbledon main draw but her recent form points to a more positive tournament this time around.

The world number 165 finished runner-up in one of her two grass-court preparation tournaments in Hertogenbosch.

Andreescu defeated Naomi Osaka in the quarter-final and was denied in a three-set final by Liudmila Samsonova, but it was a performance that hinted that she could be on her way back to the big time.

At +5000, there are certainly worse outside bets to be having than Andreescu.

Leylah Fernandez (+6600)

Fernandez emerged from pretty much nowhere when she made the US Open final in 2021, only to bump into British qualifier Emma Raducanu.

That was only Fernandez’s seventh-ever appearance in a Grand Slam and she had never gone beyond the third round previously.

The 21-year-old has plenty to prove on the grass and especially at Wimbledon, though, as she was a second-round casualty last season with her only other effort in 2021 seeing her lose her opening match.
