Live Betting: Wimbledon Ladies' Singles SemisPublished July 4, 2013 by OCR Editor
Wimbledon ladies' semi-finals begin at 1pm local time at All England Club
This has surely been one of the most surprising Wimbledon tournaments in history - there has been tons of upsets in the men's singles, and likewise in the ladies' singles where the three top seeds - Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka - have all failed to make it to the semi-finals.
Although the absence of the top seeds seemingly makes today's Wimbledon ladies' semis appear less attractive on paper, in reality it is a breath of fresh air. Fans and punters will get to watch a number of rising stars in action, but even more than - every match has an air of unpredictability about it, which is what made tennis exciting in the first place.
In the first semi, starting at 1pm on Center Court, 15 th -seeded Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli faces 20 th -seeded Belgian Kirsten Flipkens. Once that match is completed, the second pair of women will enter Center Court - 4 th seed Agnieszka Radwanska (Poland) and 23 rd -seeded German Sabine Lisicki.
William Hill Sports is taking bets on tournament winner, and believe it or not it is the lowest-ranked player, Sabicki who currently holds the title of favorite (this must be somewhat of a first): Lisicki is 6/5 to life the trophy on Saturday, ahead of Radwanska, 12/5, Bartoli, 4/1, and outsider Flipkens, 7/1.
