As everyone knows, summer means that it’s time for tennis and with only a few days left until the best tennis athletes are crowned champions of Wimbledon here is a quick Wimbledon Tennis betting update from the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet club.
On the women’s side, Serena Williams is once again fulfilling her expectations as she is just one victory away from winning her 22nd major tennis title. In order to achieve this goal she will have to defeat Angelique Kerber from Germany who had already taken down Serena Williams earlier this year in the Australian Open.
Williams recently defeated Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-0 while her older sister Venus failed to go any further after suffering a defeat to Kerber 6-4, 6-4 in Thursday's second semifinal.
Until the match takes place, here are the Wimbledon odds of winning the tournament from the women’s side. Serena Williams 5/11, Angelique Kerber 10/3.
If Serena Williams I able to defeat Kerber, she would tie tennis great, Steffi Graff for a total of 22 major tennis titles. Winning another Wimbledon would be an achievement that would certainly make Serena very happy.
On the men’s side of the tournament, we have Andy Murray who is hoping to win his third Wimbledon title. Sports Handicapping experts seem to favor him for the title giving him 8/13 odds but Roger Federer is also in the run for the title with 8/13 odds.
Murray will be taking on Tomas Berdych and if he can make it past him, he will reach his 11th grand slam final. Currently, Murray is the favorite for this matchup according to BetOnline.ag at -750. A few online sportsbooks have odds ranging from -600 to -1005 but it is all in favor of Murray.
Since Murray teamed up with coach Ivan Lendl, his game has greatly improved which is the total opposite of Berdych who has not won a major title since 2010.
On the other side of the semi finals is Roger Federer who will be going head to head against Milos Raonic. If Federer is able to win this match, this will be his 11th Wimbledon title and his 28th Grand Slam Final. The big prize however is for Federer to become the first man to win 8 Wimbledon titles.
At 34 years old, Federer has age going against him but bookies don’t seem to care as Bovada Sportsbook has him at -180 while BetOnline.ag has him at-175. Some will argue that he barely made it to the semi finals as he in his previous match against Marin Cili he had to recover from 2 sets doen and save three match points in order to defeat him.
On the other side of the court, the 25 year old Raonic wants to become the first Canadian man to reach a Gran Slam final. Did we mention that he also has John McEnroe as his coach?
Whoever you decide to bet on for the Wimbledon, just remember to use a sportsbook you can trust as winning only counts when you are able to collect your cash!
