Defending champion Garbine Muguruza finds herself in an intriguing (but manageable) draw, as the Spaniard seeks her third Wimbledon final appearance in four years. Her quarter includes three other past Wimbledon finalists, but Angelique Kerber is the biggest threat among them. Former runner-ups Genie Bouchard (2014) and Vera Zvonareva (2010) came through qualifying, but provide more intrigue than anything else.
If Muguruza finds her groove in London, she’ll probably go deep once again. Of her five appearances at the All England Club, she lost in the first or second round three times, while making the final in the other two — winning one in 2017.
Let’s explore this quarter some more from a betting perspective by looking at key historical head-to-heads, moneyline parlay pieces and upset potential. I’ll close with some thoughts on finding value in the futures market.
