Ashleigh Barty Preview – Barty the favourite for semi final clash

Ashleigh Barty is the current World Number One and the top seed at Wimbledon as well.

Heading into this semi-final match against Angelique Kerber, Barty is a strong 2/5 odds-on favourite* (odds taken 2000 GMT on July 6th 2021).

This is the first appearance in the final four of Wimbledon.

It has been pretty plain sailing all the way to this stage for the Australian.

The only set that Barty has dropped on this run was in a second-set tie break against Carla Suarez Navarro in the first round.

In the Quarter Finals on Tuesday, she smashed apart the challenge of compatriot Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1 6-3.

Before this campaign, Barty’s best run at Wimbledon was a fourth round finish in 2019.

Our betting prediction:
Total Sets 3

* (odds taken 2000 GMT on July 6th 2021)


Barty’s only Grand Slam title so far happened at the 2019 French Open.

This year she reached the quarter finals of the Australian Open before suffering an early second-round exit at the French Open.

Fascinatingly as well, the head to head between Barty and Kerber is even at two wins apiece.

Kerber is on top of her game at the moment, so Barty won’t have it easy here.

So a Total Set 3 tennis betting option is at 6/4* (odds taken 2000 GMT on July 6th 2021).

This is a high-pressure situation now.

The ease with which the Barty has been moving through the draw will certainly help her.

She hasn’t had to exert a lot of energy to get to this stage.


Angelique Kerber Preview – Can Kerber upset the odds?

In the outright winner’s market for Wimbledon tennis betting, Angelique Kerber is a 2/1 quote* (odds taken 2000 GMT on July 6th 2021).

After winning the title at Bad Homburg ahead of this Grand Slam campaign, Kerber did bring form.

She is a former Wimbledon champion as well, so knows what this is all about.

The German faced 19th seed Karolina Muchova in the Quarter Finals and breezed through the match in straight sets.

Kerber has looked more and more comfortable the longer this Wimbledon campaign has gone on.

So even though she is the 25th seed taking on the top seed, Kerber isn’t out of this by any stretch of the imagination.

She is moving well and is reading the courts superbly.

That’s back to back wins over Cori Gauff in the Round of 16 and the Muchova in the Quarters for Kerber without having dropped a set.

Those weren’t easy matches on paper either.
