Williams 6/1 Despite Injury Scare

Serena Williams is the 6/1 co-favourite with BetVictor to win the women’s Wimbledon title, despite being forced to withdraw from the French Open due to injury.

The 36-year-old had recorded three impressive victories on the Paris clay before succumbing to a muscular problem that left her unable to serve at full tilt. However, she is optimistic of regaining her fitness in time to seek an eighth Wimbledon victory and a remarkable 24th Grand Slam success overall. Williams, who claimed her first Wimbledon title back in 2002, won in both 2015 and 2016 before missing last year’s tournament and remains the player to beat if she can stay fit.

Petra Kvitova, the 2011 and 2014 champion, is also a 6/1 chance with BetVictor, with last year’s winner Garbine Muguruza available at 7/1 across the board. Simona Halep, who earned her first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros, is at 12/1 with most firms while Great Britain’s Johanna Konta, a beaten semi-finalist last year, can be backed at 33/1 with Betfred.
