Tennis fans in Canada and pretty much everywhere else on planet Earth are celebrating the fact that today (Monday, June 25) Wimbledon, the world's premier Grand Slam tennis tournament, has kicked off.

As the most important of the four tennis Grand Slams, Wimbledon never fails to attract a huge number of live and TV spectators every year, as well as hundreds of thousands of intrepid betting fans, many of whom are increasingly taking advantage of the ease and convenience of online sports betting sites.

Where once Wimbledon betting fans the world over were forced to visit their local land betting shops to place their bets, now all they need is a fast and reliable internet connection, and a safe and secure method to fund their online betting accounts, in order to bet on Wimbledon quickly, safely and conveniently.

And the number of Wimbledon 2012 betting fans will bear testament to this, as just about every online sports betting site between here and Calgary has already posted a wide range of Wimbledon betting lines that include individual match bets, outrights and even prop bets.

Of particular interest to Wimbledon punters this year, is British number one Andy Murray, who has been touted by many to have what it takes to win the most prestigious tournament in tennis, even though he was surprisingly knocked out of the Queen's Club Championships earlier this month as the defending champ.

While his early departure from the Queen's Club has concerned some punters, for others, it was just an unfortunate blip on what has otherwise been a pretty successful period for the Englishman. As such, top online sports betting site William Hill has laid Murray as the 4th favourite to win this year's Gentlemens Wimbledon Singles. Here are the mens and ladies odds for the top 15 players:
