Why Bet on Simona Halep?

After missing out on the 2021 edition of the Wimbledon ladies’ singles tournament due to injury, Simona Halep returned to the grass courts of London this Wednesday and looked as great as ever in her first match back at Wimby.

The 2019 Wimbledon champion swept her first-round opponent Karolina Muchova in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2. Muchova, who had not been eliminated earlier than the quarterfinal stage in two-career trips to Wimbledon, had no answer for Halep’s return game with a handful of her serves broken by the No. 16 seed (a total of four out of nine break point opportunities converted by Halep).

Next up for Halep is her sixth-career head-to-head match against Kirsten Flipkens. The 30-year-old Romanian routed Flipkens in all five meetings, with each of those victories coming in straight sets and not dropping more than four games in a single set to her opponent at that. Then again, it was way back in 2016 when the two last faced one another.

Why Bet on Kirsten Flipkens?

In what’s likely Kirsten Flipkens’ final run at Wimbledon as a singles competitor, the 36-year-old WTA Tour stalwart is certainly making the most out of her last hurrah. A 7-5, 6-2 victory over her first-round opponent Jaimee Fourlis continues a trend of strong showings on grass for Flipkens, who isn’t going down without a huge fight against an opponent she has yet to overcome to date.

Even though Flipkens has had better success as a doubles competitor of late, her latest singles performances have been commendable at the very least. The Belgian veteran won two matches apiece in the two grass-court tournaments leading up to Wimbledon, including a victory over top-30 player Elise Mertens.

Flipkens now has a solid 16-11 record at Wimbledon in singles play to date; by far her best record amongst all four Grand Slam tournaments. Her strongest push for a Grand Slam title also came in Wimby back in 2013, wherein she would finish with a career-best semifinal showing at a Grand Slam event that she would not be able to replicate elsewhere for the nest nine years.

Halep vs. Flipkens 2022 Wimbledon Betting Trends

  • Halep is now 25-8 lifetime at Wimbledon, which includes her aforementioned win at the tournament in 2019.
  • Halep is currently 23-11 in 2022, which includes a win at Melbourne in the beginning of the year.
  • Flipkens is 5-2 on grass this year, excluding two other wins in the qualifying stage in Eastbourne.
  • As brought up earlier as well, Flipkens is winless in five-career meetings against Halep.

Simona Halep vs. Kirsten Flipkens Expert Betting Prediction

Although Halep is clearly pegged as the overwhelming favorite in this matchup, there’s still a ton of promise that Flipkens brings to the table for a possible upset given her solid form on grass of late. Then again, Halep’s domination of Flipkens over the years will still likely garner more bets in favor of the former than the latter.
