- 2019 Wimbledon Championships (Outdoor/Grass)
- All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, London, UK
- Monday 8th July
Johanna Konta News & Form
Konta played very well in the first week. She earned a couple of straight-set victories over Ana Bogdan and Katerina Siniakova in the first two rounds, while Konta overcame Sloane Stephens in the round of 32 after dropping the first set. Konta had more unforced errors and fewer winners than Stephens, but Johanna saved four of Sloane’s five break points while breaking her serve three times.
Johanna came to London with a 29-12 record in 2019, and she reached the semifinal at Roland Garros. Konta has a 10-7 record at Wimbledon where she made it to the semis once in 2017.
Petra Kvitova News & Form
Kvitova cruised through the first week, defeating Ons Jabeur, Kristina Mladenovic, and Magda Linette without dropping a set. Petra didn’t give any chances to her rivals, and she served at the highest level, allowing just six break points over the first three rounds.
Kvitova is enjoying a wonderful season, winning a couple of titles in Stuttgart on the clay court and Sydney on a hard court. She also lost championship matches at Australian Open and in Dubai. Kvitova has 31-8 record in 2019, while she’s 33-9 at Wimbledon in her career.
Konta vs Kvitova Head to Head
This will be the fifth meeting between Johanna Konta and Petra Kvitova, and Kvitova leads 3-1 including a couple of straight-set victories on a hard court. Also, this will be their third encounter on the grass court, and Kvitova defeated Konta 6-3 6-4 in Birmingham last year, while Johanna defeated Petra 5-7 6-4 6-0 in Eastbourne back in 2016.
Konta vs Kvitova Betting Odds and Predictions
The two-time champ is a slight favourite to reach the quarterfinal, and you can pick Kvitova at 8/15 with Ladbrokes or 888Sport. Konta is listed as a 6/4 underdog with Bet365 and Betway. The bookies expect to see a thrilling battle, and the price on exactly three sets is 11/8 with William Hill.
When it comes to the total games, the line has been set at 21.5 with Betfair, and both over and under pay 5/6. Betway offers an alternative line at 20.5 games with the over at 8/11 odds and the under at 1/1 odds.
Konta vs Kvitova Betting Tip
Both Johanna Konta and Petra Kvitova are playing in a good form, so I expect to see a really tight match. Also, both ladies love to play on grass. Therefore, I suggest you take the over 20.5 games at 8/11 odds with Betway. Ladies’ singles are always unpredictable at Wimbledon, but I would be surprised if anyone wins this match easily. Johanna will play in front of the home fans which could be a huge boost when she takes on Kvitova.
