Wimbledon Women’s Final Preview

July 11, 2015 by Posted in Betting Tips

Serena WilliamsSerena Williams will be trying to make it 21 Grand Slam titles when she takes on surprise finalist Garbine Muguruza in the Women’s Wimbledon final on Saturday night.

Considering her form through the year, it is no surprise that Serena is in the final. If she goes on to win the title, it will be her sixth Wimbledon trophy. Also, it will result in her holding all the Grand Slam titles simultaneously. This is widely being acknowledged as the “Serena Slam”, a feat which was last performed by Serena herself in 2002-03.

Muguruza, on the other hand, is a rank outsider and a complete surprise package through the tournament. The bottom half of the draw opened up when defending champion Petra Kvitova crashed and Muguruza took full advantage of it.

Williams survived a scare of her own in the third round against Heather Watson where she was on the brink of defeat. But, Serena’s gritty attitude proved to be her able ally as she managed to march ahead. In the semi-finals, Serena bulldozed Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-4. If she brings the same form, it would be difficult to see beyond a Serena win.

The 21-year-old Muguruza overcame Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 in the other semi-final. She didn’t show any nervousness in what was her first Grand Slam semi-final. If she can continue her approach, Serena will have a tough game in hand.

It is always daunting to face Serena in the final of a Grand Slam but Muguruza will have the comfort of having beaten her previously. The Spaniard defeated Williams in the second round of the 2014 French Open. The American, though, had her revenge in the fourth round of Australian Open this year and leads 2-1 in their career head-to-head.

Irrespective of the result, Muguruza will be vaulting into the top 10 of the World rankings for the first time in her life thanks to her performances in this tournament. But, final will be a different ball game altogether.
Muguruza is an unknown quantity and could surprise Serena in the finals. But, Serena comes into the match having lost just once through the entire year. There isn’t much value on Serena winning the match at $1.15 at CrownBet, but taking Williams to win in three sets offers a more attractive bet at odds of $4.33 at CrownBet.
