Serena Williams News & Form

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

Serena Williams made it to the Wimbledon final for the second straight year. She is now one step away from her 24th Grand Slam trophy and tying Margaret Court’s record. Serena is a seven-time champion here, winning her previous crown in 2016, while she has a 98-11 record at Wimbledon.

Serena played very well over the last two weeks, dropping two sets in her previous six matches. She had some problems to beat Alison Riske in the quarterfinal, but Serena completely dominated Barbora Strycova in the semis, allowing just three games to her rival. Serena had 28 winners and ten unforced errors against Strycova, converting four of her five break points.

Simona Halep News & Form

Simona Halep is finally in the Wimbledon final, and the former World No. 1 fully deserved it. Halep was impressive in Week 2, hammering all her three opponents in straight sets. She dominated the 8th seed Elina Svitolina in the semifinal, dropping just four games while recording 26 winners and 16 unforced errors.

Simona is having a solid season, winning 35 of her 45 matches, but she’s still looking for her first title in 2019. Halep has a 23-8 record at Wimbledon, reaching the semifinals just once prior to this run. Simona made it to the last four in 2014 when she lost to Eugenie Bouchard in straight sets.

Williams v Halep Head to Head

This will be the 11th head-to-head duel between Serena Williams and Simona Halep, and the Romanian defeated Serena only once. They already met this season, and Serena defeated Halep in three sets at the Australian Open. This will be their second head-to-head meeting on the grass court, and Serena overcame Simona at Wimbledon back in 2011.

Betting Odds and Predictions: Williams – Halep

As we expected, the bookies consider Serena Williams as a favourite to win the title, and you can take her at 8/15 odds with William Hill. Simona Halep is listed as a 6/4 underdog with Ladbrokes.

The bookies don’t expect to see a tiebreak, and Betway offers 13/5 odds on a tiebreak in this match. However, the line on the total games has been set high at 21.5, and Betway offers 17/20 odds on both over and under.

Our Williams vs Halep Wimbledon 2019 Betting Tip

Serena Williams is on the brink of her 24th Grand Slam title, and I think she won’t blow her chance. Still, I don’t think it would be an easy job for Serena. Simona Halep is playing in a good form at the moment and will be a tough opponent to beat.

Hereof, I suggest you take Serena to win the match straight up at 8/15 odds with William Hill, but if you want greater wages, go with the over on the total games at 17/20 with Betway
