The five-time Wimbledon champion Williams continues her sensational run in 2017. Despite some concerns regarding Venus’ mental condition after being involved in a fatal car crash a few weeks ago, the 37-year-old American has advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the 13th time in her career. Taking a look now at Williams campaign in this event, the world No. 11 reaches this stage of the competition after an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win over Ana Konjuh. Besides not dropping a single service game, Venus ended the match with outstanding numbers: 23 winners and only 12 unforced errors.

At the age of 20, Ostapenko is going through the best moment in her career. After an astonishing campaign in Paris, the French Open champion secured a place in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for the first time. Playing at the All England Club brings great memories to Ostapenko after winning the junior title three years ago. Adding to this, the fast court conditions on grass are perfect for Jelena’s game style. Considering now Ostapenko’s stats throughout this tournament, the highlight definitely goes to her return to serve with the 20-year-old Latvian winning 49.01% of the points on her opponents’ serve.

This should be a very interesting contest between two players known for their powerful groundstrokes. Despite Ostapenko’s sensational run in recent months, the value is definitely on Williams’ tennis betting odds. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on her.

 Johanna Konta (6) Vs. Simona Halep (2)

After defeating Caroline Garcia in the previous round, Konta became the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since Jo Durie back in 1984. Besides her 37-12 record in 2017, the 26-year-old already won two titles this season. Known as one of the most aggressive players on the WTA Tour, Johanna ended the match against Garcia with an outstanding 1.86 winners/unforced errors ratio. In addition to her incredible numbers, Konta only allowed her opponent to win 32.63% of the points on her own serve.

Halep continues to pursue her first Grand Slam title. Adding to this, Halep may also leave London as the new world No. 1  Even though Halep is far from a grass-court expert, the 25-year-old Romanian holds a terrific 69.57% career record at the All England Club. Looking now at Simona’s campaign in this tournament, the 2017 French Open runner-up reaches this stage of the competition after a tremendous victory over the former world No.1 Victoria Azarenka.

This will be the 5th career meeting between these two players with each of them winning two.

The sportsbooks expect a very close match with very similar prices for both players. Even though Johanna is always a dangerous opponent on this surface, Halep is far from an easy matchup for the Brit due to her outstanding counter punching skills. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Simona to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this contest.
