Serena Williams – who has claimed Wimbledon five times during her career, with the last coming in 2012 – enters the tournament as a heavy 7/4 favorite by WTA odds makers. Defending champion and second ranked Petra Kvitova holds steady at 7/2 as Williams’ biggest threat in the tournament. Serena is 5-2 all-time against Kvitova. Next up are No. 4 Maria Sharapova at 7/1, and No. 25 Victoria Azarenka at 9/1.

Favorites To Win 2015 Wimbledon

  • Serena Williams 7/4
  • Maria Sharapova 7/1
  • Petra Kvitova 7/2
  • Victoria Azarenka 9/1

Sure, World No. 1 Serena Williams got bounced out of last year’s Wimbledon in the third round before pulling out of doubles play after a bizarre scene, but all she’s done since then is win every grand slam event there is. Williams has blown away the field at the 2014 U.S. Open, the 2015 Australian Open and most recently, the 2015 French Open.

As long as she doesn’t have to face Williams, I guess Maria Sharapova would be the No.2 favorite, but somehow, I just don’t see ‘Sugarpova’ getting it done, particularly with several other players now starting to really make their marks on the WTA Tour.

So what if Petra Kvitova’s midriff makes me feel like a young 18-year-old with six-pack abs again, I say the two-time Wimbly champ is always a legitimate threat.

I don’t know what’s missing from her game right now (she’s a head case) but something just looks amiss with Victoria Azarenka this season, particularly when she plays tough opponents that aren’t fearful of her former status.

Legitimate Contenders To Win 2015 Wimbledon

  • Simona Halep 12/1
  • Lucie Safarova 20/1
  • Madison Keys 20/1
  • Sabine Lisicki 25/1
  • Eugenie Bouchard 30/1
  • Venus Williams 30/1

I love World. No. 3 Simona Halep, but I’m not sure the fiery superstar is any closer to winning her first grand slam than she was a year ago.

In the case of Lucie Safarova, I’m thinking the entire field had better be wary of the blossoming lefty after watching her reach the French Open Finals and take a set off of Serena Williams.

Madison Keys looks like a sure-fire future grand slam winner, but the emphasis is on the word future. Sabine Lisicki has a 120-mile per hour serve but her mental fortitude is as weak as wet toilet tissue.

Eugenie Bouchard reached the semis at Wimbledon a year ago and has the game to beat anyone. Unfortunately, she’s struggled mightily this season – and maybe rightfully so after refusing to shake hands with an opponent at a press conference earlier this year.

Venus Williams is the former queen of Wimbledon, so I guess anything’s possible for ‘V’ (or maybe I’m hoping too hard).

Longshots To Win 2015 Wimbledon

  • Sloane Stephens 30/1
  • Caroline Wozniacki 30/1
  • Karolina Pliskova 30/1
  • Agnieszka Radwanska 30/1
  • Angelique Kerber 40/1
  • Garbine Muguruza 40/1
  • Ana Ivanovic 50/1
  • Dominika Cibulkova 150/1
  • Taylor Townsend 250/1

If I had to pick a dark horse out of this group, I’d probably go with either Angelique Kerber or Caroline Wozniacki, although there is no other WTA Tour player on the planet I’d rather watch than Dominika Cibulkova (what? She’s super hot guys).

Kerber and Wozniacki are both veterans that have well-rounded games, even if they are both missing that elusive grand slam title.

My Top Three Picks To Win 2015 Wimbledon

Serena Williams

Williams has won five Wimbly titles, but hasn’t found the winner’s circle since 2012. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Serena Williams is the unquestioned favorite and that it will likely take a small miracle to stop her from bringing home the bacon.

Petra Kvitova

The defending champion beat Williams in the semifinals at Madrid last month in route to the title, so I think a semifinal appearance is in the cards for Kvitova at the very least.

Sabine Lisicki

I know Lisicki isn’t a routine grand slam title contender, but it’s not because she lacks the game to become one. For whatever reason, Lisicki simply can’t seem to keep it together mentally when the going gets tough. Still, she’s reached the finals here and there is that 120-mile per hour serve.
