Why Bet on Serena Williams?

It’s only fitting that Serena Williams continues her enduring career right where she left it off; on the hallowed grounds of Wimbledon. The 40-year-old Williams suffered a leg injury in the very first round of the 2021 Wimbledon ladies’ singles tournament, which in turn saw her drop all the way down to No. 441 in the world rankings to date.

Thankfully, the future Hall-of-Famer received a wild-card entry into this year’s edition of Wimbledon to set the stage for another comeback. Since 2015, Williams won it all in Wimby twice and made it to two other final rounds before her abrupt first-round exit last year.

Serena has never faced her upcoming opponent in Harmony Tan before, which certainly adds an element of unpredictably to her chances of easily advancing to the second round. On the bright side, she did look good in her tune-up doubles matches in Eastbourne alongside Ons Jabeur. The duo won their first two matches on grass until they were forced to retire with Jabeur suffering an injury of her own.

Why Bet on Harmony Tan?

24-year-old Harmony Tan would be more than honored to face a legend like Serena Williams and on a Grand Slam event at that all the more. However, the Parisian upstart should take advantage of this rare opportunity to take down Williams far from her peak and make her stamp on the WTA Tour level right now.

Tan fared well in her latest tournament held on grass, winning three matches and reaching the semifinal stage of the Veneto Open in Gaiba. On the other hand, that tournament was a WTA 125 event, which is still a rung below the WTA Tour’s premier events. Nevertheless, having more time to play on the surface is a plus for the French dame.

Unfortunately, Tan has little to no experience at the All England Club. Her lone appearance at Wimbledon was last year, wherein she won just one of three qualifying matches and failed to make the tournament proper. That being said, this might be the World No. 113 prospect’s best and only chance to impress at Wimby.

Williams vs. Tan 2022 Wimbledon Betting Trends

  • Williams has a dazzling 98-13 lifetime record at Wimbledon.
  • Prior to her injury, Serena went 12-2 in her last 14 matches on grass; all played in London.
  • Tan has a 4-3 overall record on grass.
  • Tan has just three first-round victories in 15 tournaments played this year.

Serena Williams vs. Harmony Tan Expert Betting Prediction

Rarely do we see Williams as a slight (and not heavy) favorite to win her opening match at a Grand Slam tournament. Then again, her age and recent struggles with injury would justify those same odds. And even though Tan doesn’t make for a very imposing challenger, she did put in a ton of work on grass courts or otherwise this year to give Serena fans enough of a reason to sweat.
