The 2017 Wimbledon Championship gets underway on Monday as Britain's Andy Murray begins the defense of his crown.

Murray takes on Kazakhstan's Alexander Bublik in his first round tie at 1pm BST (0800 EST) on center court. The Scot has overcome a hip injury to take part in the tournament, and chase his third title.

Murray is not the favorite, however; that honor goes to six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer. The Swiss is closely followed by Murray, and then Spain's Rafael Nadal and Serbian Novak Djokovic are close behind.

Last year's runner-up Milos Raonic is the fifth favorite at 16/1, after the Canadian lost the 2016 final to Murray in three sets. Stan Wawrinka is joined by Grigor Dimitrov on 33/1.

The odds are here:

Roger Federer 2/1

Andy Murray 4/1

Rafael Nadal 9/2

Novak Djokovic 11/2

Milos Raonic 16/1

Marin Cilic 16/1

Alexander Zverev 22/1

Nick Kyrgios 28/1

Grigor Dimitrov 33/1

Stan Wawrinka 33/1

In the women's draw, Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova are the two favorites with Serena Williams missing the tournament this year due to pregnancy, while Maria Sharapova is injured.

Britain's Johanna Konta is third favorite at 11/2, while Serena Williams' sister Venus is seeking her sixth championship in SW19.

The women's odds are here:

Petra Kvitova 9/2

Karolina Pliskova 9/2

Johanna Konta 11/1

Garbine Muguruza 12/1

Venus Williams 14/1

Angelique Kerber 16/1

Jelena Ostapenko 16/1
