Who are the favorites to win the 2021 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Tournament?
After winning the 2019 US Open, Andreescu had to sit out the rest of 2020 due to injury. Despite a rocky comeback this year, which showed numerous stop-start movements, the 21-year-old Canadian comes in at one of the favorites to win the 2021 Wimbledon women’s singles title. She finished the Miami Open tournament as a runner-up this year and is known for her lethal skills on the grass court, backed by several wins at the juniors, ITF, and qualifying levels. Even though Andreescu lost her first-ever major grass match in Berlin last week, she remains one of the tournament’s front runners and wields the necessary skills to win if no injuries come her way.
Williams has a clearer path to another title following the absence of Naomi Osaka. The 39-year-old American improves her chances of winning without the threat of the Japanese player. With seven Wimbledon titles under her belt and after making the final in 2019, she remains a force to be reckoned with. Her last Wimbledon win came in 2016. She remains one of the strongest players on grass and is in top form leading up to the tournament. As of this writing, Williams sports a 12-4 record in 2021.
Who are the sleepers in the 2021 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Tournament?
So far, Cori Gauff is having an incredible season, winning 27 of 37 matches. And these aren’t just any other matches. At 17-years-old, the youngster already secured a title in Parma, a deep run in Adelaide which saw her play in the semi-final, and a quarter-final appearance in Dubai, Rome, Charleston, and the French Open. Currently ranked at No. 23, Gauff took her efforts to the Wimbledon fourth round as a 15-year-old qualifier in her lone previous senior All England Club outing.
Czech tennis player Barbara Krejcikova pulled off an upset when she unexpectedly won the title at Roland Garros after a terrific two-week run. She currently rides the wave of her win against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in three sets to lift her first-ever Grand Slam trophy. This win makes her the first woman since Mary Pierce in 2000 to accomplish the single/doubles sweep at the tournament. Nevertheless, this win does not bring her to the favorites side, but rather a good sleeper prospect for those who want to add a little thrill to their picks.
Expert’s Prediction for the 2021 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Tournament
The field is wide open and the Grand Slam is ready for the taking. Several favorites suffered injuries, which levels the playing field even further. If the two favorites can stay healthy throughout the tournament, there’s a good chance that they can secure a run to the finals. Looking at the sleepers list, though, there are names that could stir the pot and twist the storyline.
