Sloane Stephens News & Form
Sloane Stephens cruised through the first two rounds, winning both her matches quite easily in straight sets. Stephens outlasted the World No. 91 Timea Bacsinszky 6-2 6-4 in the opener, while she demolished the World No. 57 Yafan Wang 6-0 6-2 in the second round. Sloane had 19 winners and ten unforced errors against Wang who had a really bad day in the office with 21 unforced errors.
The 2017 US Open champion has a 20-11 record this season and reached the quarterfinals at Roland Garros and the round of 16 at Australian Open. However, she’s still looking for the first title in 2019. Stevens has a 12-7 record at Wimbledon where she played in the quarterfinals once in 2013.
Johanna Konta News & Form
Konta opened with a straight-set victory over the World No. 132 Ana Bogdan, while Johanna eliminated the World No. 38 Katerina Siniakova in the second round also in straight sets. Konta served at the highest level against Siniakova, hitting 76% of her 1st serve and winning 75% of her 2nd serve points while allowing no break points to Siniakova.
Johanna has a 31-12 record this season. She played very well at Roland Garros, reaching the semifinals where she lost to Marketa Vondrousova in straight sets. Konta won three of her five matches on the grass court prior to Wimbledon where she has a 9-7 record.
Stephens vs Konta Head to Head
This will be the fourth meeting between Sloane Stephens and Johanna Konta, and all previous three matches occurred this season. Konta defeated Stephens on all three occasions including a straight-set victory at Roland Garros.
Stephens vs Konta Betting Odds and Predictions
Sloane Stephens is sitting nine places ahead of Johanna Konta at the WTA Rankings, but Konta is listed as a favourite to win this match. You can take Johanna at 1/2 odds with Coral or Ladbrokes, while Stephens is a 6/4 underdog on these platforms. Konta is set at 11/10 odds to win in straight sets with Betway, while Stephens is available at 13/20 to win a set with William Hill.
The line on the total games has been set at 20.5 with Betway with the over at 4/5 and the under at 10/11. Betway offers an alternative line at 21.5 games with the over at 1/1 and the under at 8/11.
Stephens vs Konta Betting Tip
This will be a great match to watch, especially because Stephens and Konta already met each other three times in 2019. Konta allowed Stephens to win just five games at Roland Garros, but I think Sloane stands a chance on this one on the grass court.
Likewise, both ladies are playing in a really good form at the moment, so I expect to see a tight match and wouldn’t be surprised if the third set decides the winner. Therefore, I suggest you take the over 20.5 games at 4/5 odds with Betway.
