Wimbledon 2023: Women’s singles betting tips and predictions

We pick out our best bets for the women's singles at Wimbledon, with three players at the top of the betting.

Back to win: Aryna Sabalenka {ODDS:1000428897:4/1}

There are three players priced around 4/1 to win the women’s singles, and Sabalenka looks the most intriguing of the trio.

After Russian and Belarusian players were banned from the tournament last year, Sabalenka returns as a Grand Slam champion having secured her maiden title at the Australian Open in January.

She followed that up with a semi-final appearance at Roland Garros, and has now reached the final four in five of her last seven Slams, including Wimbledon in 2021.

Her 59 per cent win rate on grass isn’t the best, but that semi-final appearance two years ago and her recent form suggest she will be a serious threat this year.

It’s also worth mentioning the doubts surrounding the other two players at the top of the betting – Iga Swiatek and Elena Rybakina.

Swiatek recently underlined her status as the world No. 1 by winning her third French Open title, but questions remain about her record on grass.

She has never gone past the fourth round at SW19, and has lost five of her 11 career matches on the surface.

Rybakina, the defending Wimbledon champion, has the best grass record out of the three with a 73 per cent win rate, but there are serious concerns over her fitness after she withdrew from the Eastbourne International this week.

The Kazakhstani is still struggling with the virus that caused her to withdraw from the French Open, and she also picked up a small injury at the Berlin Open.

Each-way shout: Petra Kvitova {ODDS:1000428902:12/1}

It’s been nine years since Kvitova won her last Grand Slam here in 2014, but the two-time champion looks like a serious contender once again in SW19.

She romped to a grass-court title at the German Open in June without dropping a set, including wins over Karolina Pliskova, Caroline Garcia and Donna Vekic.

The Czech also won the prestigious Miami Open earlier in the season, losing just one set in the process.

Aside from that recent form, it’s hard to ignore Kvitova’s history of success on grass, with a 76 per cent win rate making it by far her best surface.

Having won two Wimbledon titles already, Kvitova also knows what it takes to win this tournament.

Fitness is a slight concern, with Kvitova having withdrawn from the Italian and Stuttgart Opens earlier this season due to a foot injury.

She also pulled out from traditional Wimbledon warm-up Eastbourne – a tournament she won last year – citing fatigue, but that was expected after her efforts in Berlin.
