Alison Riske News & Form

Alison Riske dropped a set in each of her previous four matches, but the 29-year old American managed to reach her first quarterfinal at Wimbledon in a career. She put on a terrific performance on Monday, overcoming the World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty 3-6 6-2 6-3. Riske had three winners more and ten unforced errors fewer than Barty and completely deserved her place among the last eight.

Alison came to London as the World No. 55 and with a 21-14 record in 2019. She won the title in ‘s-Hertogenbosch at the start of the grass-court season, while Riske has an 11-8 record at Wimbledon at the moment.

Serena Williams News & Form

Serena Williams
Serena Williams in action during her final match at Australian Open 2016

Besides a lost set to Kaja Juvan in the second round, Serena Williams had an easy job to reach the quarterfinals. Serena defeated the World No. 17 Julia Goerges in straight sets 6-3 6-4 in the round of 32, while she allowed four games in the total to Carla Suarez Navaro in the previous round.

The 37-year old American is still looking for her first title in 2019. Serena came to London with a 9-3 record on the season, reaching the quarterfinal at Australian Open and the round of 32 at Roland Garros. Serena is 96-11 at Wimbledon, winning his previous crown in 2016.

This will be the first meeting between Alison Riske and Serena Williams.

Betting Odds and Predictions for the Match Riske vs Williams

Serena Williams is a firm favourite to beat Alison Riske and make it to the semifinals. You can take Serena at 2/7 odds with Betfair, while Riske is a 3/1 underdog with Bet365 or William Hill. Although Riske is playing well on grass this season, bookmakers expect Williams to win in straight sets. Serena is available at 8/13 to cover a 1.5-set handicap with William Hill.

The line on the total games has been set at 20.5, and William Hill offers 8/11 odds on the under and 1/1 odds on the over. The price on both players to win a set is 7/4 on the same platform, while the odds on a tiebreak in this match is 14/5 with Ladbrokes and Coral.

Our Serena Riske vs Alison Williams Wimbledon Betting Tip

Alison Riske obviously likes to play on the grass court, and she could make some noise on this one. Still, Serena looks sharp on the court, so I would avoid betting on Riske to earn a set. Serena to win in straight sets at 8/13 with William Hill seems like a better option.

Also, Riske could be exhausted after 12 sets in her first four matches. She eliminated the World No. 1 in the previous round, but I think Serena will be a tall task for Riske.
