The Women’s Singles matches are well underway for Wimbledon 2013 and all of the usual suspects are marching forward as anticipated. The only glaring omission from this year’s tournament is Venus Williams who decided to withdraw from the event less than a week ago. Typically Wimbledon is a place that weeds out the mid-range players and really lets the cream of the crop rise to the top. Whether it’s the pressure, the history, the grass surface, or a combination thereof, this seems to hold true on the Women’s Singles side more so than in the men’s. Since the year 2000, the Women’s Wimbledon Singles has been won by either Serena or Venus Williams in all but three of the years. Serena has been more dominant recently with three wins in the last four years. This is simply history repeating itself on the Women’s side as Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, and Billie Jean King all had similar runs in the event during different decades.
If you’re deciding to bet on an outright winner for the women’s side of Wimbledon 2013, your legitimate picks are really narrow compared to what you might find on the men’s side. Fortunately, Bet365 is offering an each-way betting option for this tennis future and it could be really helpful for Canadian tennis bettors that are having trouble settling on a winner. The each-way is setup so that you can compliment your outright winning wager with a bet on whether or not the player will make it to the finals. If you want to take the each-way option, you will receive ⅓ the odds that you did on their outright win. This is one of your best options for betting on someone like Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, or Petra Kvitova.
Below we’ve broken down some important information about each of the betting favorites for the Wimbledon 2013 Women’s Singles.
Betting on Serena Williams: Historically, when we attempt to predict a winner at Wimbledon, we aim for someone who’s specifically had success on grass surfaces. In the case of Serena Williams, it’s fairly obvious that she could play Wimbledon on anything from grass to clay to quicksand and she would still be the resounding favorite. Serena has 16 Grand Slam Singles titles and five of those are at the the All England Club. The only unfortunate thing about her success is that bettors are getting a bit of a raw deal. If you’re betting on Serena to win the 2013 Wimbledon Women’s Singles, you’re only getting odd of 1.40 from Bet365. Of course, despite the fact that these odds are so low, you are very likely to win that bet. In the last four years that this tournament has been held, Serena has only lost once. So far in the 2013 tournament, Serena has moved on to the second round after easily defeating Mandy Minella of Luxembourg.
Maria Sharapova Betting: Just like world number one Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova has moved on to the second round of Wimbledon 2013. She defeated Kristina Mladenovic of France in two sets and will go on to face Michelle Larcher De Brito in the second round. De Brito is currently ranked 131 in the world. Sharapova may not have as many Grand Slam victories as Williams, but she has proven that she can win on all surfaces by winning each of the Grand Slam titles at least once. She won Wimbledon back in 2004 and came second in 2011. She was also fortunate enough to defeat Miss Williams in that 2004 championship match. Her futures odds to win the tournament outright are 6.00. It seems unlikely that anyone can overtake Serena at the moment, but if anyone has proven that it is possible, it’s Maria Sharapova. This would not only be a smart bet as your backup Wimbledon Women’s Singles wager, but also a very satisfying one to win if it works out.
Victoria Azarenka Odds: Azarenka has two Australian Open titles to her name and has been knocking at the Wimbledon door just hard enough in recent years to make her a threat. She has made it to the semi-finals in each of the last two years. In one year she lost the match to Maria Sharapova and she lost to Serena Williams in the other. It would be a bit of a stretch to call her a long shot, but at odds of 10.00 from Bet365, betting on her to win Wimbledon 2013 outright would be a great payday. Rarely do you get the opportunity to make that kind of a gain on a Tennis Futures wager.
