  • BookMaker.eu It’s easy to see why the No. 1 ranked women’s tennis player in the world is the prohibitive betting favorite to win the 2024 French Open. Iga Swiatek is the two-time defending champion with three French Open titles in the past four years. She came in with negative odds to become the first three-peat winner since Justin Henin in the mid-2000s and the third overall. That’s som... 

  • BookMaker.eu Iga Swiatek, the No. 1 ranked women’s tennis player in the world, is the betting favorite to win the 2024 Australian Open. In fact, the top 5 in the WTA world rankings make up the top five favorites on the opening odds board for the year’s first Grand Slam event. Defending champion and No. 2 ranked Aryna Sabalenka is slotted as the third favorite behind No. 3 ranked Elena... 

  • BookMaker.eu Last year Iga Swiatek won the U.S. Open for the first time in her career. Swiatek is the top-ranked female player in the world and the betting favorite to win the 2023 U.S. Open in the women’s division. But women’s tennis is going through an impressive transformation, including several young players pushing proven veterans. The clash of these players makes for a surprise handicapping challenge and excellent entertainment. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Iga Swiatek, the No. 1 ranked women’s tennis player in the world, is the betting favorite to win Wimbledon 2023. In fact the top three in the WTA rankings are positioned at the top of the odds board for the third Grand Slam event of the season. Swiatek had little trouble winning the French Open losing just one set. That came against Karolina Muchova in the final. Though she’s ranked third in the WTA, Elena Rybakina hit the board as the second favorite with Aryna Sabalenka slotted as the third fa... 

  • BookMaker.eu Iga Swiatek has been the top ranked player in women’s tennis since April 2022. Swiatek had her most successful season last year winning the French Open and the US Open, and she is now looking to claim her third French Open title in the last four years. The 21-year-old is entering the prime of her career so she could soon put a stranglehold on this event as Swiatek performs better on clay than she does on grass or hard court. She steamrolled the competition at Roland Garros last year, dropping just one set on her way to the title. To highlight her dominance, in her final three matches, Swiatek lost a total of 12 games. She beat Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-2 in the quarters, hammered Daria Kasatkina 6-2, 6-1 in the semis, and cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 win over Coco Gauff in the Finals. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu World No. 1 Iga Swiatek is the favorite to win this year’s Wimbledon title. Swiatek is listed at odds of +160, with no other players listed at single-digit odds. Last year’s winner Ashleigh Barty is now retired, while Wimbledon, in absolute insanity, has banned players from competing if they are from Russia or Belarus. Swiatek is coming off winning the French Open title, but she has been far more successful in her career on clay than on grass. She is just 4-4 in her career on grass, but she is d... 

  • BookMaker.eu 2020 French Open champion Iga Swiatek is now an odds-on favorite to win this year’s French Open after Ashleigh Barty announced her sudden retirement from tennis two months ago. Swiatek won in Qatar in February and beat Maria Sakkari in straight sets to win at Indian Wells in March. She went on to win the Miami Open and Stuttgart Open to win four straight singles’ titles before taking the last month off due to a shoulder injury. If Swiatek is healthy, it’s hard to bet against her given her domina... 

  • BookMaker.eu World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty is listed as the favorite to win the 2022 Australian Open on the women’s side. Defending champion Naomi Osaka is listed as the second choice while everyone else is listed at double-digit odds. Osaka has not played a lot during the last year and her world ranking has dropped to No. 14 and because of that, she has a difficult path to the final, including a potential fourth round meeting against Barty. We already know that either Barty or Osaka will not be around for the ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Women’s tennis is wide open right now. Serena Williams is at the tail end of her career. Williams will turn 40 next month, and the 23-time Grand Slam winner hasn’t won a major in four years. That has allowed the next generation of top players to emerge, leading to 12 different women winning Grand Slam titles since Williams won her last major. Two of the three women that have won multiple majors in that stretch are favored here as Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka are seen as the most reliable conte... 

  • BookMaker.eu Simona Halep will defend her Wimbledon Championship title, but she is not the favorite in 2021 Wimbledon odds, as that honor goes to World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty who is listed at odds of +700. Serena Williams, who has won the Wimbledon title a total of seven times, is the second choice at odds of +750. Unlike the men’s side, where there are very few contenders, there are 11 women... 

  • BookMaker.eu The French Open begins on Sunday, May 30 and on the women’s side, the past two champions, Iga Swiatek and Ashleigh Barty are the top two betting choices, at odds of +240 and +500 respectively. Unlike the men’s side, where there are only a few top contenders, the women’s side has 10 players listed with odds of +2500 or less. There is no question that Swiatek has the game for clay, but history is against her, as it has been 14 years since a woman defended her French Open title. Let’s look at the 2021 French Open, odds and picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The 2021 Australian Open is expected to begin on Monday, February 8, COVID-19 allowing, and on the women’s side it is Naomi Osaka listed as the 5-1 favorite. Osaka won the Australian Open two years ago, but she struggled last year, losing in the third round. Osaka has been on a major roll since last summer, winning all of her matches, including a second U.S. Open title. World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty is the second choice in the betting, while Serena Williams and Aryna Sabalenka are co-third choices at odds of 9-1. Let’s look at 2021 Australian Open odds and Australian Open picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The 2020 French Open will be without top-ranked and defending champion Ashleigh Barty, as World No. 2 Simona Halep is the current French Open betting favorite at odds of +300. The only other player listed at single-digit odds is Kiki Bertens at odds of +900. If you get past Halep, there are a lot of contenders to win the French Open on the women’s side, as 10 other players are listed at odds of 20-1 or less. That should give us some darkhorse contenders to consider as we look at the French Open,... 

  • BookMaker.eu As with the men, the women’s U.S. Open won’t have a lot of its stars present in New York. Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka will be there to give the tournament a chance to see a rematch of their famous 2018 final, but other heavy hitters will be absent. Bianca Andreescu, Ashleigh Barty, Kiki Bertens, Simona Halep, Jelena Ostapenko, Samantha Stosur, and Elina Svitolina have all decided to not take part in this year’s tournament. Andreescu won’t be there to defend her title after beating Williams i... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Australian Open is the first Grand Slam tennis event of the year, and this year’s competition is sure to be a doozy. On the men’s side of the bracket, the greatest trio of players to ever contemporaneously play at the same time are back in Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, but the women’s bracket is bound to be far more entertaining. Since Serena Williams won the Serena Slam in the summer of 2015, we have seen 11 different women win the last 17 Grand Slam tennis titles. The od... 

  • BookMaker.eu There is no longer a dominant figure in women’s tennis, and that means the Women’s US Open is fully up for grabs. Nine different women have won the last 12 Grand Slam titles, and each of those women will be in action at Flushing Meadows. Serena Williams is the favorite as the towering figure in the sport, but she hasn’t won a major since January 2017. She did make the final last year though and has six US Open titles in her career.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Women’s tennis is in a strange place right now. There is no longer one dominant player or even a small cabal of dominant players as with the men. The last 10 Grand Slam singles have been won by nine different women with Naomi Osaka emerging as the only player to win two events. With that kind of parity, perhaps it’s no surprise that the field is actually the favorite coming into Wimbledon.... 

  • BookMaker.eu We haven’t seen a woman successfully defend her French Open title in 12 years. Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova have come close to doing that, winning two titles in three years, but no other player has won more than one French Open since Justin Henin won four in five years in the mid-2000’s. Simona Halep is out to be the first to defend her title since Henin did it in 2007, and she is the overall favorite according to the oddsmakers. However, she is not a big favorite at over 4-1.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The 2019 Australian Open women’s final will be the first ever meeting between number four seed Naomi Osaka and the number eight seed Petra Kvitova. Not only is the Australian Open championship on the line but also the probability of the number one ranking in the world. This is also an historic matchup in that it’s the first time ever that two players who have never been ranked number one in the world will meet for the championship of a Grand Slam final. As for the loser a likely number two in th... 

  • BookMaker.eu With the 2019 Australian Open the beginning of the women’s tennis season is in full earnest. And its of no surprise that Serena Williams is the prohibitive favorite to win the tournament. As a matter of fact, Serena Williams has already won the Australian Open seven times, second only to Margaret Smith Court in the all-time records. But just because Williams is the big favorite doesn’t mean she is the best player or has the best chance to actually win. Last year’s winner Caroline Wozniak will ce... 

  • BookMaker.eu Serena Williams is back in the U.S. Open after a year away to start a family, and she’s still the one to beat. Williams is only the No. 17 seed at the U.S. Open because of her layoff during the pregnancy, but comes in as the top betting choice of +480. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Serena Williams is ranked just 183rd in the world after missing a year of the tour during her pregnancy, but she has been seeded No. 25 for her return to Wimbledon. It’s not indicative of her true talent level but after going unseeded at the French Open it does help. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Serena Williams is back in a Grand Slam for the first time since giving birth, and the oddsmakers believe she has a chance to win the French Open. Simona Halep is the favorite at +500 but it is a pretty open field, with Williams among the top contenders. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu With the US Open in the rear view mirror, the women head to Tokyo for the Japan Women’s Open which runs from Monday, September 11 through Sunday, 17. Elise Mertens is a lukewarm favorite to win this event at odds of +750, while four players are listed at +850 including top seed Kristina Mladenovic who is the highest ranked player in the field at No. 13 in the world. Let’s look at this event, tennis odds and tennis picks.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The last WTA event before the U.S. Open is the Connecticut Open, which takes place in New Haven, Connecticut. Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka won’t be participating, but Maria Sharapova got a wild card and she is joined in the field by defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska, Dominika Cibulkova and two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, among others. A total of 10 players in the field of 32 players have won at least one tournament already this year....
