2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions – Serena Williams
Every woman’s Grand Slam has been wide open since the turn of the season, and that looks set to continue for the duration of the season. Serena Williams will likely head the betting as she attempts to catch the all-time record set by Martina Navratilova.
The American currently sits two behind the legendary player but will face stiff competition from a host of players this year. The Williams record at Wimbledon is second to none; since 2000, 15 of the 18 finals have involved at least one Williams’ sister, with 12 of them eventually being won by either Venus or Serena.
However, Serena’s form has been poor this season so far. She crashed out of the Australian Open at the hands of Karolina Pliskova; in what will go down as one of the matches of the year.
After falling in the first set, Williams quickly took control of the match and was one game away from progressing to the final. However, in a remarkable turn of events, she lost each of the next six games to lose.
This was Serena’s earliest defeat at this Grand Slam since 2014 and ended a run of 14 consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinal fixtures. Her performances didn’t improve at the French Open last time out as she was beaten comprehensively by Sofia Kenin in straight sets.
Of course, Williams does tend to struggle on clay regardless, and she is an entirely different animal at Wimbledon. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see her beat every opponent in straight sets in England.
2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions – Petra Kvitova
Petra Kvitova will be back again to try to reclaim the title that she won in 2011 and 2014. She has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence as of late and reached her first Grand Slam final in five years in Australia before being defeated by Osaka.
The Czech has proven her ability on the grass and is rightly among contention. Despite struggling in France, Osaka will be right among the contenders, and her back-to-back Grand Slam victories in the US Open and Australian Open will give her confidence that she can better her best-ever appearance at Wimbledon last season.
It would be unfair to call her a dark horse since she has proven championship experience, but the betting markets would suggest that she is.
2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions – Johanna Konta
British hopes will be resting on the shoulder of Johanna Konta. She became the first British women to reach the final four at Roland Garros since 1983, but she underperformed in the subsequent clash against Marketa Vondrousova.
It was a hammer blow for her, but confidence will be high ahead of her home competition. She is yet to reach a Grand Slam final, but Konta has competed in three semi-finals; including at Wimbledon in 2017.
The big market-mover following the French Open was Ashleigh Barty; who will be looking to add a second Grand Slam title to her collection quickly, but her Wimbledon form doesn’t offer much hope after she was beaten in the third round last year.
2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions
Our 2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions sees Naomi Osaka taking home the title.
The women’s competition is always more competitive than the men, and any one of eight players could claim that they have a reasonable chance to win.
Serena Williams goes into the competition with proven experience on grass, but poor recent form. The smart money would be in support of the up-and-coming Naomi Osaka.
