The 2012 Wimbledon Womens Odds has Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams as the co-favorites for the tournament at 11/4 odds courtesy of the Las Vegas Hotel (formerly Las Vegas Hilton). The greatest and oldest tennis tournament in the world returns on Monday from the All England Club in Wimbledon, London where they have been playing the same tournament since 1877. It is the third of the four majors played by both the men and women and generally regarded as the hardest one to capture. It's played entirely on grass and takes two weeks to complete.
Both Serena and Maria are great grass court players and both have won this tournament before. Sharapova won way back in 2004 when she was just 17 years old. Her opponent? Serena Williams, whom she beat in straight sets 6-1 and 6-4. Williams has won back-to-back Wimbledon titles twice in her career. The first came in 2002-03 while her second set of titles came in 2009-10. The talk around the tennis world lately is whether or not either of these two players still have the drive to compete at a high level in tennis. Sharapova was able to prove that she still cares by winning the French Open just a few weeks ago. Williams, on the other hand, collapsed in the first round, losing in her opening match in a major tournament for the first time in her competitive playing career.
The 11/4 odds on both players equate to a 3.75/1 odds for a more rounded out number. It means, in theory, that each player has a little more than a 26 percent chance to win the tournament. The next closest player in respect to odds is defending Wimbledon Champion Petra Kvitova at 7/2 odds, meaning she has a 22 percent chance to win the tournament and is essentially a 3.5/1 odds. After that, the world's No. 2 player Victoria Azarenka has 6/1 odds. Azarenka was the world's No. 1 player for 25 consecutive weeks prior to Sharapova regaining that title after winning in Paris.
