  • With qualifiers underway, the first match of the round of 128 will take place July 1st
  • Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams is coming into the tournament among the favorites
  • Newly crowned World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty will be going into Wimbledon as the favorite to win the tournament

Wimbledon is set to return from July 1-14, and there are plenty of wagering options for the action at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The newly released include which WTA stars are most likely to reach the final. Let’s delve into the numbers to see where the value lies.

2019 Wimbledon Final Odds

Ashleigh Barty

Will Ashleigh Barty Reach the Final? Odds
Yes +180
No -225

After being crowned no. 1 last weekend, Barty has put herself in a position to win Wimbledon as well.

History just might not be on the side of the Australian. The only player to win the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back since 2003 is Serena Williams. But Barty has a massive serve and a strong hit, which historically has proven to be beneficial for her on the grass surface. She’s currently riding a career-best season, and that could very well take her to the Wimbledon Final.

Serena Williams

Will Serena Williams Reach the Final? Odds
Yes +275
No -375

The seven-time Wimbledon champ is looking to tie Margaret Court’s record for major single titles with another win this year, but injury has forced her to withdraw from three of the five tournaments she’s competed in this year. The key to Williams making the finals is her health.

Angelique Kerber

Will Angelique Kerber Reach the Final? Odds
Yes +500
No -900

The reigning champion who beat Serena Williams in straight sets last year has had a decent year so far. Kerber is feeling confident ahead of the tournament playing in Eastbourne these past few days. She might not be one of the players you see in the finals, but she does like playing on grass, so I’m expecting her to make a run.

Madison Keys

Will Madison Keys Reach the Final? Odds
Yes +900
No -2500

Madison Keys recently withdrew from Birmingham which is considered one of the Wimbledon warmups, so with that and only making it to the round of 32 last year, Keys may be one of the least likely to make it to the finals in this group. But something to keep in mind is that she has beat Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka before.

Naomi Osaka

Will Naomi Osaka Reach the Final? Odds
Yes +450
No -700

What’s playing into Osaka’s side for making the finals is that there has been so many different winners on the WTA Tour this year. Yes, Barty has recently dominated, but earlier in the year she wasn’t winning the tournaments. Based on Osaka’s history, she is a decent bet to take in the final.

Sloane Stephens

Will Sloane Stephens Reach the Final? Odds
Yes +900
No -2500

Sloane Stephens, who just recently got knocked out of the Eastbourne International in the round of 32, has struggled in some of the bigger tournaments this year. Stephens is also one of the least likely in this group to make the final and didn’t have a very good showing in the tournament last year, losing in the first round.
