Kerber vs Williams - Saturday, 11pm Channel 7 & 7TWO

Wimbledon Women's Final 

 

Serena Williams will meet Angelique Kerber in a highly anticipated climax to the women’s side of draw at The Championships. A repeat of the 2016 final in which the all-conquering American claimed the title, the duo will face off for the 9th time in their careers. The 23-time Grand Slam winner has been victorious in six of the pair’s previous matches, winning each in straight sets. In addition, of the 12 sets that Williams has won, her rival has only managed to win 3.5+ games in three of them.

 

To this end, expectations are that 11th seed Kerber could struggle to contain the woman many argue is the greatest female player in history. Returning to the court earlier this year, the right-hand Williams appears to be back to her very best, taking just one-hour and 10-minutes to dispose of last round opponent Julia Goerges. Importantly, her trademark power game is also as strong as ever, evidenced by the fact she nailed 20 winners and won 87% of points on first serve in her semi.

 

Writing her opponent off completely may be a risk however. A two-time Grand Slam winner, Angelique Kerber has progressed to this point of the competition by dropping just one set. The German also appears to be getting better with every match, allowing the highly-regarded Jelena Ostapenko just six games in her straight sets semi-final triumph.

 

Still, backing against Williams should be done with caution and the generous $2.15 odds on Serena to win her 8th Wimbledon crown in straight sets is likely to be a very popular option.


 

Key stat.: Serena Williams has only allowed her opponents 3.5+ games in two of the past six sets she has won.

 

Our tip: Williams to win in under 21.5 games.
