Women’s Wimbledon Betting: Williams to end Watson’s thrilling run

Williams has been comfortable to this point and hasn’t really been troubled, and although she will have to battle both her opponent and the locals, it won’t phase her one bit as she’s been there and done it all before.

The bottom half of the draw may have lost some big names, but the top half is shaping up nicely with a number of intriguing match-ups to look forward to. All eyes will be on world number one Serena Williams.

Impressive wins over Caroline Garcia and Daniela Hantuchova have set up a dream clash against the top seed, and quite frankly Watson should go into this one feeling no pressure.

That makes her dangerous as she will play freely and hope to cause an upset, but ultimately we don’t believe that she is ready to go shot-for-shot with the American ace.

Williams has been comfortable to this point and hasn’t really been troubled, and although she will have to battle both her opponent and the locals, it won’t phase her one bit as she’s been there and done it all before.

Expect some resistance from Watson early on, but Williams should take control and wrap things up in the second set.

Elsewhere, we’re also looking forward to seeing how Victoria Azarenka does against Kristina Mladenovic in a battle between two in-form stars.
The Belarusian is unsurprisingly the favourite, and she certainly looked good last time out in her win over Kirsten Flipkens.

However, her French rival is a completely different proposition and her semi-final run in Birmingham would have been a real boost for her confidence.

We believe that Azarenka will eventually prevail, but not without a scare as this one goes the distance.
Arguably the biggest 50-50 clash on Friday is Lucie Safarova’s encounter with Sloane Stephens with both ladies looking to kick on and make a deep run.

Safarova of course made it to the semi-finals at SW19 last year, and despite a slight scare against Alison Riske in the first round, she looks like she’s ready to pick up from where she left off after her appearance in the Final at the French Open last month.

Similarly to Azarenka-Mladenovic, we expect this one to be a competitive match that will be a treat for the fans.

Backing the Czech to win in straight sets certainly offers more value and is absolutely a realistic possibility, but her match odds are decent too and we’re backing her to get the job done against her American opponent.
