2018 Wimbledon Women’s Semifinals Betting Predictions

Written by on July 12, 2018

The madness of the opening rounds in the Women’s tournament at 2018 Wimbledon appears to have finally abated, as we have 4 seeded players set to go in the semi-finals. Being placed in the top 10 seeds appeared to be the kiss of death at this year’s event, as none of the 10 women given those seeds made it beyond the 4th round. It made for a fun tournament, albeit a difficult one to handicap for those of us who love to wager on tennis. The two semi-final games are set for the early hours of Thursday morning EST, and they feature a player who is suddenly back in form after an extended absence.We are, of course, talking about Serena Williams, who came into this tournament as the #25 seed. She will be going in search of her 8th Wimbledon title, but there are 3 other players looking to beat her to the punch. Let’s take a closer look at the women’s semi-finals at Wimbledon.

Julia Goerges (#13) vs Serena Williams (#25)

It’s fair to suggest that the appearance of Goerges in this Wimbledon semi-final is something of a surprise, especially when you consider that grass has not been her friend. She played a pair of tournaments on grass prior to playing here, losing in the quarter-finals in Birmingham before going out in the opening round in Eastbourne. Goerges has been good here, though, and she showed some real grit to come from a set down to Kiki Bertens in the quarter-finals.We have all been waiting for Serena Williams, former WTA No. 1, to get back to top form after taking time off to have a child, but it was beginning to look as though it might never happen. Serena has turned back the clock a little at this tournament, although she has been aided a little by some of the upsets that took place in the earlier rounds. As we mentioned earlier, a win at Wimbledon would be title #8 for Serena, proving she knows how to get the job done on Center Court.It has been 8 years since these two last met, with Serena winning both previous meetings. I like here to win again here and move on to the final.

Jelena Ostapenko (#11) vs Angelique Kerber (#12)

It may come as a bit of a surprise to learn that these two have never met before, although, at 21 years of age, Ostapenko is still a relative newbie. What Ostapenko has quickly proven is that she seems to very much like the grass surface, going 8-1 in games played on it. She made it to the quarter-finals at Eastbourne, the tournament played prior to Wimbledon.Angelike Kerber is the favorite at the 2018 Wimbledon semifinals.This is certainly not uncharted territory for Kerber, as she made it to the Wimbledon Final back in 2016, when she lost to Serena Williams. She made it all the way to the semi-finals at Eastbourne before falling to Caroline Wozniacki in a 3-set thriller.Her experience at the highest level may give her a bit of an edge in this one.I have a feeling that this one is going to need all 3 sets to give us a winner, and I think it will be Kerber who comes out on top.
