The Stage is Set For Another Kerber vs Williams Final
In the women’s competition, three Grand Slam winners have reached the semi finals. Serena Williams is once again in the spotlight after a lengthy break and she shines as bright as ever.

She rose to the occasion and won the third set against her less experienced opponent to set up a match against Julia Goerges. Williams won both previous games against the Germans and is given odds of 3/10 by bet365.
In the other semi final, Angelique Kerber prepares for a tough match against 2017 Roland Garros winner Jelena Ostapenko. The German has advanced to this stage with relative ease and played one of her best games this year against Darya Kasatkina. She has the experience needed, as she played another final on the grass at Wimbledon, one lost against Serena. Ostapenko is once again in superb form, having reached the semifinal without losing a single set. Kerber is favorite to prevail at bet365 sports with odds of 3/5.
Novak Djokovic Gears Up for a Semifinal Against Nadal
Roger Federer suffered an untimely and surprising elimination from Wimbledon in the match with Kevin Anderson. John Isner also caused an upset against Canadian Milos Raonic to set up an interesting duel of with the South African. These are two of the players with the best first serves in the circuit, so their semifinal can take a while to complete. Not surprisingly, the two athletes are given virtually identical odds of 9/10 to prevail at bet365 sports.
Arguably the most exciting and anticipated semi final is the one betweenNovak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Both of them have won at Wimbledon and have dozens of Grand Slams trophies between them. It is widely expected that the one that will prevail on Friday will also lift the trophy on Sunday. Once again, the odds reflect the obvious balance between the two tennis players, as bet365 sports offers odds of 4/5 on Djokovic and 1/1 on Nadal. The Serbian won 26 matches, while the Spaniard prevailed on 25 occasions.
