Join us and find out our top tennis picks for the WTA Wimbledon Final. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should place this valuable bet.

Serena Williams (1) vs. Angelique Kerber (4)
As we mentioned in previous analysis, Serena Williams has improved her level match after match on this tournament, with the American booking a place on her 9th Wimbledon final after a superb performance against Elena Vesnina. Looking at Serena’s matches in 2016, the contest against Vesnina was without a doubt the best that the American played this season, dismissing her opponent by 6 – 2 6 – 0 with 28 winners / 7 unforced errors, 77% first serve in and 90.32% points won on her serve.

We picked Angelique Kerber to cover her spread on our semifinals analysis against Venus Williams and the German matched the expectations with a 6 – 4 6 – 4 triumph. Grass is a surface that clearly suits Kerber’s game style, with the German hitting the ball extremely early and creating many problems to her opponents.

Looking to Angelique’s numbers throughout this event, the world no.4 won 50.9% of the games played on her opponents’ serve while the tournament average is only 31.4%. Kerber is for the second time on a Grand Slam final, after winning the Australian Open earlier this year.

This will be the 8th career meeting between these two players, with Serena leading on h2h by 5 – 2.

After losing two consecutive Grand Slam finals this year – at the Australian Open against Kerber and French Open against Garbine Muguruza – Serena is clearly looking for revenge on this match. Despite Angelique’s terrific return skills, it’s almost impossible to break the American if she keeps serving like she did in the previous two matches – 71.91% first serve in, 92.19% first serve won and 1.29 aces per service game. With this in mind and due to the low tennis odds on Serena’s ML, our suggestion is for you to add the American’s set handicap to your tennis picks.
