Hopefully she'll proof him wrong!
Sharapova is an unreliable favourite
The Russian tops the winner market at 3.95 after the victory at Roland Garros that completed her Career Grand Slam and launched her to the top of the world rankings, but her record at sustaining success doesn't inspire confidence. Unlike most players talented enough to lift all four Grand Slams, she has won each just once and dragged that out over eight years, with five slams the shortest gap between any two. Serena is the only female in the last 16 years to have prevailed at Roland Garros and Wimbledon consecutively and that was way back in 2002. Sharapova meanwhile failed to get beyond the fourth round at the major following two of her three prior Grand Slam wins, and has been out before the quarters in four of her last five Wimbledon entries.
