Caroline Wozniacki will begin her Wimbledon campaign against American tennis play Varvara Lepchenko on the opening day. Wimbledon is always a special tournament that all the players want to win and with great expectations of the players, I am expecting a great game of tennis.

Varvara Lepchenko has been around the professional tennis circuit for a long time and has won many ITF singles titles. The American is 32 years of age meaning that she will bring a lot of experience into this match. That being said, Varvara Lepchenko has not played since the French Open meaning that she will not have prepared for the grass courts as well as most players. This could be a serious problem considering the significantly faster pace of play at Wimbledon compared to Roland Garros.

On the other side of the coin, Caroline Wozniacki is coming off a very successful WTA Eastbourne. The Danish superstar was dominant in that tournament and it showed that she is ready to tackle the challenges of playing on grass. This has been a very good year for Caroline Wozniacki as she has won a grand slam and has also regained a top 2 ranking in the world. Wimbledon will be a great chance for the world number 2 to silence many doubters about her talent.

All in all, I think that Caroline Wozniacki will win and breeze through to the next stage of the competition. She is a much better player than Varvara Lepchenko and I think the difference in skill level will be obvious. In addition to that, I think that Varvara Lepchenko has not done enough preparation to be successful at this tournament.

Looking at the odds, unfortunately, we are not getting a good enough price to place a bet on Caroline Wozniacki to win so I think it is best if we avoid wagering on the outright result market. The best bet for this game is the under 2.5 sets bet. There is a massive difference in skill between these two players and I don’t see Caroline Wozniacki losing a set. This should be quite a safe wager.

 

Pick:
Under 2.5 sets
