Unlike the men’s side of the bracket, it seems that the race to the top of the 2019 Wimbledon women’s singles is a wide open one. Of course, Ashleigh Barty is going to be among the most talked about contenders, especially after her success at Roland Garros, but she’s not going to have an easy time in London with several other talented players vying for the Grand Slam title. Let the experts make a sense out of the upcoming 2019 Wimbledon, as we reveal their picks below. Also, you can view all odds for the women’s singles here.
Expert Picks and Predictions for the 2019 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Tennis Tournament
Where: All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, London, United Kingdom
When: July 1-14, 2019
TV Broadcast: ESPN, NBC Sports, TSN, Tennis Channel
|Tennis Head||Ashleigh Barty|
Ashleigh Barty only stands 5’5” but she’s towering over everybody in the WTA rankings. Currently ranked as the No. 1 players by the WTA, Barty is having a strong year. After a 2018 season in which she didn’t make it past the round 16 in any of the Grand Slam events that year, Barty opened up the 2019 Grand Slam season by reaching the quarterfinals of the 2019 Australian Open. At the 2019 French Open, Barty finally had the Grand Slam party she’s been waiting for, as he took home the title at Roland Garros, the first of her still young career. In case you need more proof that Barty is ready to make loud noises at the 2019 Wimbledon, she just won the Nature Valley Classic (grass) this month, defeating Julia Georges in the Finals. She did not drop a set in any of the five matches she’s had in that tournament. Barty is +750 to win the 2019 Wimbledon women’s singles.
|Simon Briggs||Karolina Pliskova|
|Charlie Eccleshare||Garbine Muguruza|
|Vicki Hodges||Petra Kvitova|
|Molly McElwee||Serena Williams|
Talk about diversity of choices. That’s what we got from the experts over at The Telegraph, which had four experts giving different picks to win the 2019 Wimbledon women’s singles. Let’s begin with Briggs’ selection of Pliskova (+1200), who has two titles to date this year. Pliskova could add to that if she tops the ongoing Nature Valley International in Eastbourne. She hasn’t won a Grand Slam title yet, but was a round-of-16 finisher last year at Wimbledon. Eccleshare thinks people are sleeping on Muguruza (+1400). The Venezuelan won the 2017 edition of the Wimbledon women’s singles and had back-to-back round-of-16 Grand Slam finishes this year. For Hodges, it’s just a matter of time before Kvitova (+600) notching her first Grand Slam title since surviving a scary knife attack in 2017. Kvitova has two Wimbledon singles titles (2011, 2014). Lastly, McElwee puts some respect on Williams (+400), who lost in last year’s Wimbledon Finals, though, that did barely anything to blemish the star’s scintillating resume.
JERSEY EVENING POST
|Jersey Evening Post||Ashleigh Barty|
Most people are seemingly on the Barty Boat. We totally understand, though. When you’re winning, everyone tends to favor you. Barty pocketed her first-ever Grand Slam title at the 2019 French Open, and she’s not stopping there. Next up for her is a stint at the 2019 Wimbledon, where she hasn’t gone past the round of 32 in the three times she played in the tournament before.
