Re: Brits in Wimbledon
Yeah, the past 3 weeks has collectively been absolutely shite, and not one of the 19-24 range (and Heather) can say they've had a successful period. A couple of individual decent results (Parmentier, Tomova, Smitkova) and a couple of decent performances from Harriet, but ultimately, only Maia got more points than last year and even that was absolute luck drawing a QWC and having the match indoors as well, everyone else in that range received less points which is very disappointing considering they are all a year older, and a few will be significantly dropping down the rankings, so it has been dire.
That all said, I still have a bit of hope. Liang hasn't been great throughout 2019 and has lost to Katy, Gabi and Heather (2 and 2) in straight sets this year, and is coming into this on the back of a 1 and 2 grass defeat against Cepede Royg, and there are others like that.
I'll be interested to see the odds when they come out - I don't know if you are into odds, or ever put any bets on or anything, but if you are/do, I'd imagine if you put 5 or 6 of the overseas opponents in an accumulator to win, you'd probably get combined odds of around 5 or 6/1, so if you were very confident they'd all lose, if you put £10 or £20 on, then you could at least make a good bit of profit out of it. Although if I did put that on and there was one solitary win like Broady or Murray, then I'd be disappointed to lose £20, but my point was, I expect the odds to be close in a lot of matches.
