Garbine Muguruza v Venus Williams Wimbledon Final 2017 Odds

Muguruza to deny Williams title

The home crowds were hoping to see Johanna Konta contesting the final of the women’s draw this year, but the British number one fell in the semi finals to Venus Williams. Age is clearly not an issue for the older of the Williams sisters as the 37-year-old will step out onto Center Court for the second Grand Slam final of this season. She lost in the Australian Open showcase match to her sister Serena earlier in the season. So will Williams be able to capture the title as she goes into the game as bet365 11/10 underdog against Spain’s Garbine Muguruza?

Williams is a seven-time Grand Slam champion and if she gets her hands on the title on Saturday, this will be her first success since 2009 in a Grand Slam. There really is not a lot of pressure on her to come out and deliver the win against the younger player, but she still loves the big stage and she will turn up and be competitive in the Final. It has been a good resurgence from Williams this season, much as Roger Federer has come back to the top this term. Muguruza goes as 5/6 favourite at bet365 for Saturday’s showdown.

Muguruza has a Grand Slam title to her name after having won in France last season, but she has had a difficult time building on that success over the last twelve months though. She made a big break through back at Wimbledon 2015 when she ran to the final before being stopped by Serena Williams there and after last year’s second round exit, she deserves credit for scrapping it out and getting back to the Saturday final. Muguruza had to fight back from a set down against world number one Angelique Kerber in the last sixteen and the took down Magdalena Rybarikova in a lopsided semi final.

So can Muguruza get some degree of revenge over the other Williams sister for her loss to Serena a couple of years ago? It won’t be easy because Williams is keeping points short and her serve has been fantastic on the grass and is so difficult for opponents to handle. It may be worth looking for the match to go the distance and 5/4 on three sets in the match will be a nice value.

Williams leads the head to head over Muguruza 3-1 but it was the Spaniard who won the most recent meeting between the two, back in Rome this season in the quarter finals on clay. Prior to that, Williams had won all the previous hard court meetings. Muguruza has a clear and direct game plan of her own and if this one does go the distance then things will favour her just that little bit more. A Muguruza 2-1 set victory will have appeal at a price of 3/1.
