We’ve reached the decisive day with Garbine Muguruza and Venus Williams fighting for the WTA Wimbledon trophy. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Muguruza vs. Venus
Regardless of this Saturday’s outcome, Garbine Muguruza already secured her return to the top 10. Known as a big match player, Muguruza is famous for playing her best tennis on the big stages. In addition to Garbine’s outstanding 51 – 19 record on Grand Slam events, the 23-year-old Spaniard is for the third time on a major final in her career. Looking now at Muguruza’s campaign on this event, the 2016 French Open champion reaches this stage of the competition after an easy straight sets win against Magdalena Rybarikova.
Despite her age, Venus Williams continues to defy the odds. Playing on grass brings the best out of Venus with a phenomenal 87 – 14 career record at the All England Club. Besides winning five titles throughout her career in Wimbledon, the 37-year-old American lost another three finals on this event – all to her sister Serena. Considering now Williams’ numbers throughout this tournament, the highlight clearly goes to her serve with Venus allowing only one break of serve in the last three matches.
Taking a look now at the odds for this contest, the bookmakers expect a very close match. Muguruza is currently available at 83/100 at BetVictor while Pinnacle offers 11/10 for Venus’ victory. Due to Williams’ higher experience at this level, the value is definitely on her side. However, our recommendation is for you to place a bet on the Over 2.5 sets at 5/4 at Bet365 since we can’t see any of these two players winning this final in two sets.
