Wimbledon Ladies Competition – Preview and Prediction

The lady’s part of the Wimbledon tournament is loaded with promising matchups and excitement. We’ve already witnessed one major surprise with the seven-time champion, Serena Williams, already losing in the first round. We’ve deliberately waited to see the start of the campaign and whether there would be some unexpected surprises or cancellations due to the COVID-19 virus in order to have the most accurate prediction possible. 

The situation is quite complex, but we need to state that Iga Swiatek is the top favorite being almost a unanimous pick for the trophy among the tennis pundits. 

Stay tuned for more information and see our pick with BetXchange odds for the same. 

Preview

Iga Swiatek comes to London as the top favorite for winning Wimbledon. The Pole is playing superbly this season, and she recently won the French Open, which is why the bookmakers believe in her form. Not to forget, besides Garros, Swiatek won five more titles this year and is by far the top player this season. She didn’t lose a single final, lifting trophies in Qatar, Indian Wells, Miami Open, Stuttgart, and Rome. 

The second favorite is On Jabeur, the 27-year-old from Tunisia, who displayed solid tennis, having one Masters won, in Madrid, and losing two finals in Charleston and Rome. However, after that, Jabeur won Berlin, and she looked pretty impressive on the grass, displaying her offensive mentality, which suits her well on this surface.

Coco Gauff comes as the third contender, and the young American did look well over the last few weeks, apparently improving her form. She had some issues last season, but it appears that one of the biggest talents in the world is slowly getting back into the rhythm. 

Of other names, we need to mention the former winners: Petra Kvitova, Garbine Muguruza, and Simona Halep. The first is the fifth overall favorite in London, and Halep is a bit behind. Muguruza, as we all know, can explode at any given moment, while the two can’t be forgotten as well because this is their surface and environment. Kvitova has two titles, the second when least expected, while Halep won in 2019. 

Regarding the dark horses, the Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic and Angelique Kerber need to be monitored. The first looks good this year, while Kerber held a title at the All England Club back in 2018. 

Previous Tournaments

The 2021 edition saw Ashleigh Barty winning the trophy after beating Karolina Pliskova in the finals, 2-1. Previously, Halep and Kerber won in 2019 and 2018, while Serena was the last one to defend the crown as she won in 2015 and 2016. The 2020 championship didn’t take place due to a COVID-19 pandemic that locked the entire world. 

Of multiple winners, Kvitova is the only active here. 

Prediction

For the moment, Swiatek is the most dominant player on tour, and we really think that she has the power to win this title and become one of the rare Grand Slam champions to win Wimbledon and Garros in the same year. The Pole’s level of play is way above all the others, though her part of the draw is far tougher than the other with Muguruza, Kvitova, Pliskova, and others involved. If she survives those challenges, then we do not doubt Iga’s win in London.

That success will cement her as the new dominant queen of ladies’ tennis.
