Seeing how the first week of Wimbledon played out in the Women's side of the draw, it is worth revisiting the outright market.
Going into week 2 of Wimbledon the Women’s draw had cut opened up dramatically, with just one top 10 seed left in the running come Monday morning. Of course, Serena Williams is still in the tournament but was seeded 25 as she returns from having her first child.
Taking a look at the outright market, it is Jelena Ostapenko who interests me the most. At the time of writing she is currently available at best price 9/1, but don't expect that to last long.
She burst onto the scene last year, winning the French Open at just 20 years of age. Although this was on clay, there are signs that grass could be the surface that actually suits her game most.
Ostapenko is yet to drop a set at Wimbledon so far this year and is already into the quarter-finals, matching her performance from last year. The manner in which she is beating opponents must strike fear into those watching, she has ‘bagelled’ both opponents in the last two rounds.
The fact that the young Latvian would also avoid Serena Williams until the final means she is a cracking each way bet at 9/1 to win the Championship.
