2019 Wimbledon Championships Women’s Singles Betting Tips & Predictions

The 2019 Wimbledon Championships start on Monday 1 July, so check out our betting preview for the women’s singles and get all important tips and analysis along with our predictions.  

The 133rd edition of Wimbledon Championships begin on Monday 1 July 2019, so let’s take a look at the ladies’ singles. Angelique Kerber will defend the title, while the new World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty is considered as the strongest favourite to lift the trophy this season. However, women’s competition always brings plenty of surprises, so the next two weeks should be full of excitements.

Ashleigh Barty of Australia

Top Half of a Draw

When you take a closer look at the top half of a ladies’ draw, you can see a lot of players who are capable of going all the way. Ashleigh Barty leads the way at 6/1 odds to win the title with Ladbrokes, but only in her quarter of a draw we will see the reigning champ Angelique Kerber, the seven-time champion Serena Williams, 2017 champ Garbine Muguruza, 2004 champion Maria Sharapova, and this year’s champion from ‘s-Hertogenbosch Alison Riske.

Also, out of the top five contenders, only Karolina Pliskova landed in the bottom half of a draw. You can take Angelique Kerber at 8/1 with Bet365 or William Hill, while Serena Williams is also listed at 8/1 odds with Coral. These two girls met each other in the 2018 championship match, and Kerber outlasted Serena in straight sets 6-3 6-3. Angelique is a three-time Grand Slam champion and she loves to play on grass. Serena is far away from her best form, but she’s always a tough rival to beat at Wimbledon.

Karolina Pliskova

Petra Kvitova is the fifth-strongest favourite to win the title, and you can take the sixth-seed at 12/1 with Betway. Kvitova is a two-time Wimbledon champion from 2011 and 2014, and her style of play just suits grass court well. Petra has a 30-9 record at Wimbledon and will be keen to bounce back from the first-round exit in 2018.

Kiki Bertens is another strong favourite in the top half of a draw, and the World No. 4 is listed at 22/1 with Betfair. Bertens has a 7-6 record at Wimbledon, and she reached the quarterfinals last year. Belinda Bencic and Donna Vekic could make some noise, but neither of these two girls has ever made it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Bencic is available at 28/1 odds with Coral, while Vekic is a 66/1 underdog on the same platform.

Keep your eyes on Johanna Konta who’s Britain’s top player. The World No. 19 has a clear path to the round of 16 where she could meet the ninth-seeded Sloane Stephens. Konta made it to the semis in 2017, and you can take her at 22/1 with Bet365. Sloane Stephens is 10-7 at Wimbledon, but she didn’t win a match here in two years. Stephens is a 40/1 underdog with Coral.

Bottom Half of a Draw

Karolina Pliskova follows Ashleigh Barty on bookmakers’ lists and the World No. 3 is a 7/1 favourite to win the title with William Hill or Ladbrokes. Pliskova has a 30-9 record in 2019, but she is 8-7 at Wimbledon where Pliskova made it through the second round only once. Last year, Pliskova exited in the round of 16.

Naomi Osaka is coming to London as the World No. 2, and this will be her third appearance at Wimbledon. In the previous two years, Osaka exited in the round of 32, and she had some injury problems this spring. Still, Osaka is the 2018 US Open champ and a 2019 Australian Open winner, so she could be an interesting betting pick if she’s healthy enough. Naomi is set at 14/1 odds to win the title with William Hill.

Simona Halep is listed at 16/1 with BetVictor, and the one-time semifinalist from 2014 often struggled to perform at the highest level on the grass court. On the other side, Halep got a nice draw and could easily reach the quarterfinals.

While Halep is the seventh seed here, the eighth-seeded Elina Svitolina is another girl who’s never been a factor at Wimbledon. Svitolina is a 50/1 dog with Ladbrokes, and she has a 5-6 record here, reaching the round of 16 once in 2017.

Madison Keys is a girl to watch in the bottom half of a draw. The World No. 17 won one title this season and she has a 14-6 record at Wimbledon, making it to the quarterfinals in 2015. Keys has strong groundstrokes and could be a nice pick at 25/1 with Betfair.

Jelena Ostapenko is also in this half of a draw, and the World No. 35 is a 50/1 underdog with Bet365. Ostapenko reached the semis last year, but she’s terrible this season, losing 16 of her 26 matches in 2019. Also, Ostapenko exited in the first round at both previous Grand Slams.

Who’s the Best Pick?

Since Steffi Graff in 1996, only Serena and Venus Williams managed to retain the title at Wimbledon. Hereof, Angelique Kerber would make a remarkable feat if she wins another title. Kerber has a 30-10 record here, reaching the championship match in 2016 and semifinals in 2012.

Ashleigh Barty is playing in a tremendous form this season winning 36 of her 41 matches including the championship match at Roland Garros. However, Barty’s style of play could be a problem on grass, and in three appearances at Wimbledon, she couldn’t make it through the round of 32.

Serena Williams is a mystery, playing just 12 matches in 2019 with a 9-3 record, while Naomi Osaka’s had a drop in her form since winning two straight Grand Slam titles. Karolina Pliskova possesses big serve and strong forehand, but her strange character is an issue that never allowed Pliskova to win Grand Slam.

Howsoever, I’ve mentioned in the intro how unpredictable is women’s tennis, so anything is possible at this year’s Wimbledon. I don’t believe Barty or Kerber will lift the trophy, while I can’t wager on Pliskova considering her inconsistency. Therefore, my first two picks are Serena Williams at 8/1 with Ladbrokes and Naomi Osaka at 14/1 with William Hill.
