2018 Wimbledon Women’s Round of 16 Betting Review

Henry Watkins : Monday,July 9, 2018 4:40, EDT

If it’s unpredictability and shock results you are looking for, simply take a look at what has already gone down in the women’s 2018 Wimbledon tournament. By the time we had reached the end of the 4th round, not one of the top 10 seeds was left standing. This has been a tough tournament to predict, and it’s probably only going to get tougher, as we have a lot of lesser-known players going head to head. Can one of the remaining seeded women make the run to the final or are we going to end up with a real surprise winner? Round of 16 was very exciting on Manic Monday, so let’s take a look at what happened and how things might play out for the rest of the tournament.

Top Half of the Women’s Draw at Wimbledon

The top half of the draw started early on Monday morning. Dominika Cibulkova made short work of her opponent with a straight-sets win over Su-Wei Hsieh in a match where Cibulkova only dropped 5 games. Her next opponent will be Jelena Ostapenko, who is ranked #12, who also picked up a win on Monday morning. Ostapenko needed a tie-breaker in the opening set but cruised to a 6-0 win in set two over Sasnovich.

Daria Kasatkina is seeded #14 and lost the first set against Alison Van Uytvanck, but then managed to overcome various troubles to win the next two sets 6-3, 6-2. Now, she will face Angelique Kerber (#11) in the quarter-finals, with many now considering her a legitimate favorite to win.

Bottom Half of the Women’s Draw at Wimbledon

The last of the top 10 seeds feel this morning when Kiki Bertens ousted Karolina Pliskova in straight sets. Given that Bertens is in as the #20 seed, this was not as huge a surprise as some of the previous results, but it’s still one that has seriously upset the apple cart in the women’s tournament. Bertens will now face Julia Georges, who made very short work of Donna Vekic in the Round of 16. The bottom half of the draw still has several seeded players alive and well in the later stages, making it perhaps the toughest road to the final.

Serena Williams is the 2018 Wimbledon Betting favorite.

Later, #25 Serena Williams crushed Yevguenia Ródina 6-2, 6-2. Her opponent in the quarter-finals will be Camila Giorgi, who won in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 over Ekaterina Makarova. This would mean another unseeded player for Serena to face, potentially setting up a run to the semi-finals.
