Ladies' Wimbledon Winner Odds
Kvitova has won Wimbledon twice before, in 2011 and 2014, and she is very much on the comeback trail following an exceptional 2018 campaign that has seen her win five titles on the WTA Tour. Kvitova's recent record at Wimbledon isn't great, although there were obviously mitigating circumstances for her second round exit in 2017 as she was still recovering from the dreadful knife attack that caused her to miss six months of the season year.
Kvitova's task isn't easy this year though as she is projected to meet former champion Maria Sharapova in the fourth round, while top seed Simona Halep is a possible quarter-final opponent.
A semi-final with defending champion Garbine Muguruza could be next up and we really like the chances of the Spaniard again this year. Muguruza will be able to ease her way into the tournament as she has enjoyed the benefit of a kind draw early on and she can be backed at 8/1 with Paddy Power.
For us, the winner of the ladies' Wimbledon crown could well be decided by a potential quarter-final between Muguruza and Angelique Kerber, who has a fine record on grass. The German has reached a Wimbledon quarter-final, a semi-final and was runner-up in 2016, and she has been in great touch this year, reaching the last-eight of the French Open and the final four of the Australian Open.
Kerber has been drawn to face 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Vera Zvonareva in the first round and she is 12/1 at this stage. However, Muguruza has won her past five head-to-head clashes with Kerber, including at Wimbledon in 2017, and she just gets the nod from us.
Where Is The Value In The Odds To Win Wimbledon
In the bottom-half of the draw, all eyes are on Serena Williams as she returns to Wimbledon for the first time since giving birth to her first child in September. Williams (6/1) could meet Elina Svitolina (25/1) in the third round and then Madison Keys (16/1) in the fourth round. A quarter-final against Caroline Wozniacki is pencilled in if seedings go to plan, before a potential semi-final against the likes of Sloane Stephens or Venus Williams.
Venus Williams is an attractive 40/1 with Bet 365 as she always tend to raise her game for Wimbledon. A five-time winner and a four-time runner-up at SW19, the 38-year-old keeps rolling back the years and she looks to have a nice draw early on, although a fourth round clash with Victoria Azarenka could be a cracker.
Williams reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon in 2016 and the final last year, and we'll have an each-way punt on her this time.
