Which punter is going to look beyond Serena Williams to lift the trophy at Wimbledon 2015?
True, Serena has not been dominating at Wimbledon since 2012, but the way she has been bulldozing her hapless opponents through 2015-whether she is fully fit or not, makes her the strongest contender for the championship!
Williams It Has To Be!
Ace analyst, Andy Schooler reckons that unlike 2013 or 2014, this year no player is ready to stop Williams Jr. at the Wimbledon.
Though every player suffers bouts of inconsistency and occasional losses, this time around, it pretty much looks like there is virtually no player to stop Williams, even if she is having a poor day at the office.
This has been reinforced repeatedly this season, with Williams coming back from death and winning matches.
Williams playing with such high intensity, punters are not giving much odds to the other top players in the field like Petra Kvitova, Maria Sharapova, Sabine Lisicki and Caroline Wozniacki.
The Grass Advantage
Being a natural serve and volley player, Williams holds a clear advantage in the grass courts of Wimbledon. And it is just the reverse for most of her challengers!
Though players like Lisicki, Sharapova and Flavia Pennetta have a game for grass courts with good serve in their arsenal, they have not exhibited the mental toughness that Serena Williams has time and again displayed.
Also, the form and record of the challengers against Williams has not been inspiring this year.
Petra Kvitova Challenge
The betting gurus are not very keen to wager on Petra Kvitova, who incidentally is the defending champion at Wimbledon.
Petra Kvitova also has the distinction of being the lone player this year to have defeated Williams, though that victory has come in the clay courts of Madrid.
Though Petra Kvitova is the defending champion, she has often betrayed her seeding due to her lack of mental strength.
Yet, one factor, which is strongly in her favour to go through her early rounds, is the draw, which has been comparatively favourable for her.
The Semi-final Line-up!
Betting sites like Skybet are out with their odds and are offering very attractive incentives for bettors, who deposit betting money in their sites.
Bets for predicting the last four players to remain in the championship rounds seem to interest several punters now.
Experts opine that Flavia Pennetta, Angelique Kerber and Camila Giorgi are most likely to join Serena Williams in the last four.
This means that players seeded with higher ranking would fall by the wayside, without taking their destined places in the draw.
One such player is the fourth seeded Simona Halep, finalist at the French Open in 2014. But the experts back Kerber to seal the semi-final berth ahead of Halep.

Update: In the Men’s Singles, Novak Djokovic lifted the trophy, while as predicted, Serena Williams turned out to be the best in the Women’s Singles.
