Simona Halep has looked right at the top of her form throughout this Wimbledon campaign.

She heads into the Wimbledon Semi Final on Thursday as the favourite in tennis odds to make a return to the Final.

Standing in her way is the gutsy Elena Rybankina, who is more than capable of causing an upset on her day.

Elena Rybakina Preview – Impressive run from Rybakina

This is only the second time that Elena Rybankina has been in the main Wimbledon draw.

Last year on her debut she made a Fourth Round exit.

She’s gone a lot better this time around as here she is with a chance at reaching the Final.

If she were to, then it would be the first Grand Slam final appearance of her career.

In the match outright for Wimbledon tennis betting, Rybakina is the 12/5 underdog* (odds recorded 10:50 GMT on July 6th, 2022 at William Hill).

During this Wimbledon campaign, Rybakina has dropped just one set.

That was in her Quarter Final match when Ajla Tomljanovic took the opening set off her.

But that spurred Rybakina into gear as she closed out the match 6-2 6-3.

Our betting prediction:
Halep 2-1 set betting

* (odds recorded 10:50 GMT on July 6th, 2022 at William Hill)


Three of Rybakina’s five first sets played at this year’s Wimbledon have gone to a tiebreaker.

You get the feeling that she can’t afford to get behind on the board to Halep.

There have been two previous meetings between Rybakina and Halep, with Halep currently 2-1 up.

Rybakina’s match win record was due to a retirement by Halep.

The most recent between them was at the 2021 US Open, with Halep winning in three sets.

Both of Rybakina’s losses to the Romanian have been over three sets.


Simona Halep Preview – Romanian red-hot

Simona Halep, who won the Wimbledon 2019 title extended her match-winning streak at the Slam to 12.

That was with a Quarter Final win over young American star Amanda Anisimova on Wednesday.

This is Halep’s first time back in the Wimbledon draw since her 2019 title.

She appears to be enjoying every moment of it as well, as she has been unstoppable.

Only in one of her five matches has she conceded more than six games.

In the match outright for Wimbledon betting, the win for Halep is at 1/3* (odds recorded 10:50 GMT on July 6th, 2022 at William Hill).

Given that she has all the experience of being a previous Grand Slam winner, she is probably going to be tough to knock over.

Simona Halep was only the 16th seed for this draw but looked like a clear front-runner all the way.

She beat fourth seed Paula Badosa 6-1 6-2 in the Round of 16.

Then in the Quarters she hammered Anisimova 6-2 6-4 and Anisimova had been in superb form.

Halep was 26/8 on her win/loss record for 2022 before Wimbledon, having landed one title.

She is the clear favourite here if she brings her A-game.

But looking back at the previous history, a Halep 2-1 set betting pick may be an option to consider at 3/1* (odds recorded 10:50 GMT on July 6th, 2022 at William Hill).

Rybakina has taken a set off of Halep in both previously completed matches between them.
