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.
Williams has seven career Wimbledon championships, and even though she is still rounding back into form, Serena has to always be considered a threat to win the title. Her first Wimbledon victory came in 2002 and she went back-to-back again in 2003. Williams finished as the runner-up twice in the next five years and then went back-to-back once again in 2009 and 2010.
Williams has been really good lately with titles in 2012, 2015 and 2016. Garbine Muguruza was able to take advantage of Williams’ absence in 2017 by claiming the title but it’s going to be tough for her or the rest of the field to win again this year with Serena back in the mix in tennis wagering.
Wimbledon will be held at The All England Lawn Tennis And Croquet Club in London, England. The tournament will be held from June 28th through July 15th, 2018. Wimbledon will be nationally televised on ESPN channels.
We'll have Wimbledon tennis odds at BookMaker.eu available for every match of the tournament.
Williams is still making her way back from pregnancy and because of that she is not the favorite at Wimbledon. That honor goes to Petra Kvitova, who is listed at +320 to claim the title. Kvitova recently pulled out of a tournament due to a hamstring injury so taking her at these odds is pretty risk if she is hobbled at all by the injury.
Williams isn’t too far behind at +500 and those are pretty good odds for those who believe she is ready to resume her role as the most dominant woman’s player on the planet.
Defending champion Muguruza has some solid odds as well, listed at +800. She is followed by Angelique Kerber at +1200, Karolina Pliskova at +1500 and Maria Sharapova, Madison Keys, Simona Halep and Sloane Stephens at +1600.
Johanna Konta has +2500 odds to win Wimbledon, while Victoria Azarenka is at +2800. Venus Williams finished as the runner-up a year ago but her odds are only at +3026, which is a solid bet. Venus has won Wimbledon in 2000, 2001, 2007 and 2008. Her and Serena have dominated this tournament and the duo would love to once again make a solid run.
Elina Svitolina is at +3300 odds to win the championship, while Naomi Asaka is also at +3300. That makes up most of the contenders as the winner will likely come from this batch of players, although there are others listed at long odds to come away with the title in tennis betting.

With Serena not at the top of her game, it will make for an interesting tournament. Kvitova has won two times in the past and the oddsmakers like her chances as long as she is healthy. Venus Williams and Muguruza are also intriguing options, as this tournament seems wide open.
Serena Williams isn’t quite back to superstar form and she will advance far but won’t win Wimbledon this time around. Angelique Kerber made it to the finals in 2016 before losing to Serena. She is the pick to finish it off this time around and emerge as the 2018 Wimbledon champion in tennis odds.
