Betting on Serena Williams
Ranked 11th in the world by WTA, Williams is headed to Wimbledon with fresh legs. Williams didn’t busy herself much after getting knocked out by Sofia Kenin in the third round of the 2019 French Open. Williams has not played on grass, too, this season, but those who’ve known Williams for a long time will say it’s not something that her fans should be worried about. After all, Williams has a total of seven Wimbledon titles. He nearly got her eighth last year, but Angelique Kerber had other plans, beating the legendary American star in the Finals. Williams has seen her form drop off at least for a bit lately, but that shouldn’t manifest much against a relative unknown in Gatto-Monticone. Williams is still a force on the grass, and if there’ someone who’ll give her a run for her own money, it’s likely not someone who’s ranked 154th in the WTA. Williams has a 92-11 record all-time at Wimbledon. Williams has never tasted defeat in the first or second round of Wimbledon thus far in her career.
Betting on Giulia Gatto-Monticone
It’s never too late to party at Wimbledon. Just ask Gatto-Monticone, who, at 31 years old, is just about to make her Wimby debut this Monday. Gatto-Monticone passed the test of the qualifiers to get into the main draw of the tournament by winning three straight matches. None of the competition she’s had of late was on the level of Williams, but the obvious fact that Gatto-Monticone is seen by many as a mere sacrificial lamb for the American will at least take away some of the pressure on her shoulder. Expect Gatto-Monticone to play with more finesse than what most expect to see of her, considering the overwhelming number of people counting her out. Gatto-Monticone might also be catching Williams at the right time. Williams has battled injuries and also spent time away from tennis to tend to his pregnancy, which means there could still be doubts about her readiness for the Grand Slam event in London. Gatto-Monticone made her Grand Slam debut at the 2019 French Open, but was eliminated right in the very first round.
Williams win in straight sets.
