2014 Wimbledon Championships Betting Odds and Preview - Sharapova, Kvitova Pegged to Win Women’s Singles Title
By James Patrick Quizon | July 1, 2014 4:08 PM EST
It’s down to 11 contenders for the women’s singles title in the 2014 Wimbledon Championships. With play entering the quarterfinals—the round of 16 for six others—it is Czech Republic’ Petra Kvitova and Russia’s Maria Sharapova who are considered the frontrunners for the Grand Slam crown in London.
Maria Sharapova of Russia takes a drink as she practices at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London June 29, 2014.
But as the ladies tournament this year has seen, no betting odds favourites or top seeds are safe from elimination even against unknown and unheralded underdogs. Already, the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in Serena Williams (USA) and Li Na (China) are booted out courtesy of Alizé Cornet (France) and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova (Czech Republic), respectively.
Strycova with odds of 31.00 joins two other Czech in Kvitova (3.25) and Lucie Safarova (15.00) in the quarterfinals.
Kvitova’s has the best odds to win along with Sharapova’s 3.50—if the betting lines speak the truth and if they hurdle their opponents in the quarters and semis, the pair will meet in the championship round at Wimby.
