Maria is the fave so far with good reason. It's not that much of a mystery. :rolleyes: She's one of the top players on grass. And I wouldn't care if she isn't the utmost fave but anyone here who denies she is among the favorites is well.....in denial lol. I'd say Maria is more dangerous this year than last and I'd put Lindsay and Amelie higher than the Belgians at this point.

very true, but the bookies have no choice at the moment their not competing on the tour these odds will change as the days go by but they are there because they are not competing at the moment. if they were to get some good playing up they will surely rise in those odds

yup...of course, the williams will always be great threats at wimbledon but I understand why they aren't so high in that list at the moment. As you say, Aaron, the odds will change for sure depending on what happens between now and when the championships begin.

odds change all the time, all it needs is someone to put down a wad of cash on someone and they'll be fav until some other loser puts some on another person.

We will see what the form is of the two Belgians.

The way they gave the AUS Open to Mauresmo still baffles me.

Kim hasn't done a lot of practising since her slam win and thus she ran a lot of risk injuring herself (what happened). - look at the final at Antwerp, Mauresmo plainly outrun her.

And then Justine, everytime she doesn't feel 100 % healthy, well ...

I still believe Mauresmo isn't as good as Justine or Kim, but ... (just as I believe Venus and Serena are the best players, but ...).

I thought Maria was the favorite at last years Wimbledon, and this years AO, in fact isn’t she the favorite every time a Grandslam rolls around it never fails, the hype machine continues too roll, but to bad it will be Maria who as to put up with all the criticism of why she can’t live up to the hype.

Yes I can't believe with Lindsay’s game they would place her that low, and what gets me is that the draw is not even out and they have predicted a winner already.

everyone in the uk loves Maria, and no matter what her seeding, ranking or previous grass form or wins have been, she will always be given the best odds at Wimbledon. That is a fact.

Its stupid i think. Venus should be ahead of Justine, and not level with Serena.

Davenport should be higher than Justine too.

i think they've got that wrong. momo at 10/1 is striking odds considering her consistent semi appearances and form of late. I'd better have a bet.

Mar 8th, 2006, 10:05 PM
I don't think either one of the WS will win this year, though I would put them 3rd and 4th as favs...I would bet on Davenport (if her serve % is high) then Hingis...I don't think Martina will win RG this year and if she serves well she could be tough because of her anticipation and fantastic net play :worship: ...of course the draw will be a good determing factor and both Serena and Venus could come through at any point, maybe Amelie as a darkhorse?

Maria won two years ago and then made the semis and last years champion has played one match this year. It's not that surprising she's the favourite now - but I agree Davenport's odds are a bit high.
You should be happy if your favourite is down the list - it gives you a chance to make some money :D

I'm not surprised odds are available already. The odds on who will win the world cup have probably been out for years!

I have no idea why Maria is the fave. Henin and Amelie are surely more likely to win it then her i'd have her 3rd or 4th favorite.

Elena such an outsider..i know shes not had too much success on grass but her game can be deadly on any surface im sure!

These odds are a little bogus...the odds are sort of biased with Maria, because they WANT her to win, since she won in 2004, she's been the overwhelming favorite, which shouldnt be the case.

To Me the odds are more like this:

1. Venus Williams-Defending champ, on grass-cannot be counted out...aka last year.

2. Amelie Mauresmo- She's finally learned to win big matches, her game is perfect for the grass especially when she comes to net.

3. Justine Henin-Hardenne- Would be at the top if she wasnt such an overwhelming French Open favorite, which means she could be tired by Wimbledon.

4. Sharapova- Of course she's a favorite, her game is deadly on grass, but hasnt won a BIG match in quite a long time.

5. Davenport-Always a favorite

Mar 9th, 2006, 05:48 AM
First, these are oddsmakers, so they are making odds to simulate how they think the british will bet, not really on who they think will win.

But more importantly, I am suruprised the big take away from this is that Maria has the best odds. 5.00 are not really great odds at all, and still indicate that it is fairly likely she will not win. What is surprising is that there is no front runner. I would bet 5.00 on Maria now...great return for a good grass courter. I would just think venus would have like 3.00 or something lol.

Barlos
Mar 9th, 2006, 05:55 AM
I see 3 good bets!

Very strange odds on both Davenport (12/1) and Dementieva (66/1). These are well worth a flutter :)

I already have a bet on Martina which I made early in January at 50/1. Since then Martina has moved in gradually to her current odds (12/1). I guess they'll move in even further as she's likely to improve more between now and Wimbledon.

Prizeidiot
Mar 9th, 2006, 06:57 AM
Betting odds like that shouldn't be taken seriously. Consider that odds shift in accordance with money put on players. It's understandable that Maria would have a lot of backers. People outside of tennis probably don't know anyone else. The way she is promoted, they probably think she is by far and away the best tennis player in the world.

Prizeidiot
Mar 9th, 2006, 06:59 AM
Now think, who is better on grass, Vaidisova or Dementieva :tape:
I'd say Dementieva actually. She made fourth round last year, and should have gone further. Nikki on the other hand, despises grass. She has the serve for grass, but the rest of her game suits a consistent bounce more.
