Konta to be pushed to three sets by combative Garcia

Remarkably after having started the tournament at a hefty 12/1 price, Johanna Konta is now 7/2 outright favourite to win the women’s title on the grass at SW19. That’s a turnaround. What really set up her for that tag of favourite was her dramatic win over Donna Vekic in the second round. Coming out as the victor in that epic duel showed that Konta can handle the pressure and that she certainly has the grit that she needs to go on and do some damage in this tournament.

Already this is her career best run at Wimbledon and she steps out into fourth round action against Caroline Garcia on Monday. Konta is 4/11 at bet365 to win the match, with Garcia out at a not-unappealing 9/4 price. This will be another serious test for Konta though, who came through in straight sets against Maria Sakkari in the third round. Being in this part of the draw, she got the entire weekend off as well, so that will help her as she pushes on into the second week. But these two have already met this season and Garcia was the victor in that one.

The French player won it on a final set tiebreaker and that was the fourth meeting between the two players and the head to head stands a 2-2. This will be the first time that they have met on grass though. Konta has already shown her grit in the tournament and she will face a player who has a lot of that too because Garcia is a fiery character who punches hard. Garcia is a very tough player and has come through the tournament without having dropped a set.

Konta is going to have to be at her best in his one. Youngster Garcia is one of those players who really has the look about her in terms of being a future Grand Slam champion, the 23 year old is maturing nicely now in her career after an electric start and then a dip. Going into the tournament Garcia carried a 21/13 win/loss record for the season with no titles, going up against the 29/9 win/loss record of Konta and her two titles. But this looks as if it could be close and a Konta 2-1 set betting punt is a good 11/4 price at Bet365 looks value.
