Ladies’ tennis is about as wide open right now as could be, as there are just a slew of different players that have a chance to beat the Wimbledon odds. We’re breaking it all down and making our Wimbledon picks for the big time event coming up at the end of June here at Bankroll Sports!

It’s going to be oh so difficult to pick a winner for this event. The big question mark is whether or not Serena Williams (Current Wimbledon Odds: 4.80 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook) is going to play in this event. Williams has won this event four times in her career, including against her sister, Venus, but both of them are really in some trouble in terms of injuries. The Williams sisters both sat out of the French Open for the first time in over a decade. Now, they’re both up in the air for the trip to the All-England Club, but at the end of the day, if these two end up playing, they’re both going to be lethal competitors. The Williams sisters have won a combined nine of the last 11 Wimbledon titles.

The favorite to win this event on the Wimbledon odds though, is the only woman in the middle to win this event that is playing in this field, Maria Sharapova (Wimbledon Lines: 4.75 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook). The Russian beauty really had a great run at the French Open in spite of the fact that a number of different ladies took a big time shot at her at Roland Garros. Sharapova won this tournament in 2004, and she is still incredibly young at just 24 years old. There is still plenty of good tennis in this Russian’s body, and she is probably deservedly the favorite even though she isn’t going to be anywhere near the top seed in this event.

List Of Past Wimbledon Champions (Since 2000)
2010 Wimbledon Winner: Serena Williams
2009 Wimbledon Winner: Serena Williams
2008 Wimbledon Winner: Venus Williams
2007 Wimbledon Winner: Venus Williams
2006 Wimbledon Winner: Amelie Mauresmo
2005 Wimbledon Winner: Venus Williams
2004 Wimbledon Winner: Maria Sharapova
2003 Wimbledon Winner: Serena Williams
2002 Wimbledon Winner: Serena Williams
2001 Wimbledon Winner: Venus Williams
2000 Wimbledon Winner: Venus Williams

The woman of the hour after winning the French Open is going to be Na Li (Odds to Win the Wimbledon: 8 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook). Li had been a bridesmaid a number of times before in her career, but at 29 years old, she finally had the breakthrough and won the French Open this year. Now, with back to back Grand Slam finale appearances under her belt, Li is going to try her best to make a big time run at one tennis’ biggest stages at the All-England Club.

Perhaps the woman that is going to be the most dangerous at this event is Kim Clijsters (Current Wimbledon Odds: 8 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook). Clijsters came onto the scene again after taking some time off a few years ago, and all of a sudden, she was basically winning everything under the sun. Clijsters was definitely knocked out of the French Open a bit too prematurely. The Belgian has been a great hard court player over the years, but on the grass at the All England Club, she has yet to taste glory. Especially if the Williams sisters don’t play or aren’t fully healthy, this might be her best shot.
