Default Re: Contest - 2017 Wimbledon - Womens Singles

Kerber and Muguruza have both played in Wimbledon finals over the past two years. This feels like a toss-up to me, but I'll stick with No. 1 for now and take Kerber.

Azarenka is unseeded because of a long layoff and could very well pull off the upset. She's a former world number 1. In fact, I'll take her here.

Ostapenko is on fire right now. I'll take another upset.

This is a toss-up. Wozniacki has been atop the rankings, but she's never won a Slam. I'll take Coco.

Konta will fly the flag for Britain and advance.

Kuznetsova dominates her rivalry with Radwańska, so I follow suit.

Venus will win, and she should be more of a favorite. She's won this event five times.

I've never heard of either Rybáriková or Martić. Martić was a qualifier, though, so I'll take the other one.

For the Quarterfinals tomorrow:

Williams,
Halep,
Vandeweghe,
Muguruza

Was surprised to see Kerber lose but Muguruza definitely deserved the win, played very aggressively!
