Serena Williams will win her 7th Wimbledon today or Simona Halep win her 1st, either way we’ll hopefully have a great tennis match to enjoy this afternoon. Williams is the favourite just as she was this time last year and in the US Open final, neither of which she won, so this isn’t an open and shut case. Halep is capable of winning but whether she will or not we’ll find out soon enough.
Williams has had by far the easiest route so far and when she did take on seeded players they were outside the top 16. She’s started to look like her old self but the level of opposition she’s faced will have played a part in that. Halep has played extremely well and has justified our investment in her at the end of the first week. The decision now is whether to stick or twist.
As our bet was only 0.25 points it is tempting to let it ride but Serena’s odds on status does allow us to have the best of both worlds to an extent. If you’re not already involved then Williams looks a little short to back and Halep certainly is now considering we’ve taken 8/1. If you are on too then we recommend backing the American for 1 point with Matchbook. This allows us to make a 0.25 point profit if Serena wins or 1 point if Halep manages to beat her. If you prefer, a straight cash out right now would give you a 2/1 return but we’ve come this far with the Romanian so we intend to see it through. Again this applies only if you’re already invested in this market, if you are not we advise no bet.
