The white-hot Caroline Wozniacki arrives at Wimbledon brimming with confidence. She’s on good form of late, having just won a grass tournament in Eastbourne. She also knows she can seal the deal on the biggest stage after taking home the Australian Open trophy earlier this year. However, she finds herself in a very difficult quarter at a tourney she has never excelled at. In fact, Wozniacki has never made a quarterfinal in London.

Despite the Melbourne hardware and a perfect 2018 record on grass, Woz (+700) is not the favorite to advance out of her quarter despite having the highest seed (No. 2). That distinction goes to seven-time Wimbledon champ Serena Williams (+163) — perhaps the greatest grass-courter of all time.

Not only does Wozniacki have to contend with Serena, but almost all of the seeds in her quarter have outstanding grass pedigrees. Just take a look at some of their past Wimbledon results in comparison to Woz.

And that doesn’t even include unseeded Lucie Safarova and Ekaterina Makarova, who faced off in the 2014 Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Let’s take an even more detailed betting outlook of this quarter by examining key head-to-head records, futures value and some key first-round matchup info.
