2018 Wimbledon Women’s Quarterfinals Betting Predictions

Written by Henry Watkins on Tuesday,July 10, 2018 11:07, EDT

The women’s tournament at 2018 Wimbledon is really now starting to take shape, with the quarter-finals underway on Tuesday morning. It’s a bit of a frantic pace being set, especially when you consider that the Round of 16 games were played yesterday. This is just one of the reasons why winning a major tournament is so tough, which is something that we have seen here, with all of the top 10 women’s seeds already gone.

There are still some very good players left in this tournament, though, with the unseeded players now starting to fall. At the time of writing, two of the quarter-final match-ups had already been played and settled, with the other two games in the bottom half of the draw still to come. Let’s take a closer look at those 4 games.

Top Half of the Women’s Draw at Wimbledon

As we already mentioned, we now know who will be in the semi-finals in the top half of the draw, and there were no more surprises in store on Tuesday morning. The day began with #12 seed Jelena Ostapenko going head to head with unseeded Dominika Cibulkova.

Ostapenko was made to work very hard in the opening set, finally getting the service break she needed to win that one 7-5. It was another good battle in the second set, but it was once again Ostapenko who got the crucial break that allowed her to win 6-4 and close out the game. Winning in straight sets is important at this stage of the tournament, as it means getting a little extra rest between games.

WTA #11 seed Angelique Kerber is beginning to look like a very good bet to win it all here, as she closed out #14 seed Daria Kasatkina in straight sets, winning 6-3, 7-5. Kerber did get a little bit of a scare in the second round, needing to come from a set down to win that one, but she has been great ever since, failing to drop a single set in the following rounds.

Bottom Half of the Women’s Draw at Wimbledon

The first quarter-final game in the bottom half of the draw features a pair of seeded players who have met twice before. Julia Goerges is in as the #13 seed and will be going against #20 Kiki Bertens for the third time in her career. While Goerges may be the higher seeded of the two players, it is Bertens who won both previous meetings.

Julia Goerges is one of the favorites to win 2018 Wimbledon.

It should be noted, though, that both of those wins came on clay, and that this will be the first time the ladies meet on grass. Neither of these women has excelled on grass this season, prior to this event, so I am giving the nod to Bertens once again.

The other quarter-final features #25 ranked Serena Williams, who is still trying to find her way back to form a few months after giving birth. It seems she has found that form at just the right time, breezing into the quarters in rather comfortable fashion. She will face Camila Giorgi, an unseeded player that Serena has already beaten 3 times in her career, and all without ever dropping a set. This should be a comfortable win for Serena Williams.
