We have expert betting predictions for the 2021 Ladies Wimbledon tournament, which starts on Monday.
The Ladies competition is wide open and punters get value for quality tennis players. Australia’s own Ash Barty heads the market alongside Serena Williams, which is surprising.
There are a host of players looking to become the next Wimbledon champion and we look at the best value bets available.
2021 Women’s Wimbledon Predictions
2021 Ladies Wimbledon Tournament Winner – Ashleigh Barty
Ash Barty hasn’t played since her second-round failure at the French Open. The Australian has had an interrupted year, but she should come to Wimbledon a focused player.
The 25-year-old has yet to progress past the fourth round at Wimbledon, and she’s only a one-time Grand Slam winner, but there are more wins in store.
She won’t get a better opportunity to beat a field that doesn’t have much going for it. Serena Williams is also paying $7 to win, which doesn’t give much credit to Barty.
Williams is the best to ever play the game, but she’s in awful form and we give the clear edge to Barty at this stage of her career.
Take the value available as her odds will firm as she progresses through the tournament.
Bet: Ashleigh Barty @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
2021 Ladies Wimbledon Best Value – Petra Kvitova
Petra Kvitova comes off a semi-final loss to Angelique Kerber at the Homburg Open and it should top her off nicely for the next two weeks.
The two-time Wimbledon champion loves the surface, and although she won her most recent Wimbledon in 2014, class doesn’t leave the Czech.
Our only worry is her opening match against the feisty Sloane Stephens, but she should get past the American to make the second round.
Kvitova made the fourth round in 2019 and she also made the final of the Australian Open in 2019, so her recent form has been excellent.
We recommend taking the $12 as it’s a good price and punters can bet on a player that has a wealth of experience and winning experience at Wimbledon.
Bet: Petra Kvitova @ $12 – Bet @ Sportsbet
2021 Ladies Wimbledon Best Roughie – Iga Swiatek
Iga Swiatek is known as a clay specialist, but the slower surfaces at Wimbledon will also suit and she shouldn’t be overlooked.
The Polish superstar has played in only one Wimbledon tournament, which was a first-round loss in 2019. However, she has since posted a French Open win and scoring her first Grand Slam could pave the way for a successful career.
She has also shown ability on hard courts when making the fourth round at the Australian Open on multiple occasions, so she’s not a one-trick pony.
$17 is available with bookmakers and that is attractive odds for an in-form player who isn’t lacking in confidence.
Bet: Iga Swiatek @ $17 – Bet @ Sportsbet
2021 Ladies Wimbledon Longshot – Angelique Kerber
The German 33-year-old is one of the older players in the tournament, but she comes off a win at Homburg and that should give her confidence.
She got the better of Siniakova in the final and top seed Petra Kvitova in the semis, and we think Kvitova is a strong winning chance.
It backs up a solid showing at the Berlin Championships and the past Wimbledon winner could turn back time and score her second Grand Slam win.
She won in 2018, which backed up her final appearance in 2016. Her best tennis comes on grass courts and punters get value odds.
Take the $26 for a player who should make a deep Wimbledon run.
