The final two quarterfinals in the women’s half of the draw at Wimbledon take place on Wednesday, as Simona Halep and Amanda Anisimova clash on Centre Court for a place in the semi-finals. Both players will likely go into that semi-final as the favorite, but which player will get the win at SW19 this week?
Before Betting On Wimbledon Simona Halep vs Amanda Anisimova
Cases can be made for both Simona Halep and Amanda Anisimova to go on and win Wimbledon this year, as both have been sensational on the grass throughout the tournament. The Romanian star has been here and done it before, as she will be looking to win Wimbledon for a second time, which would also be her third Grand Slam success.
She has looked back to her very best this year, and is playing much better than her 18th ranking would suggest. Her return to SW19 has been a major success, as she missed the previous two editions of the competitions. Halep is yet to drop a set at the Slam this summer, with her latest win being an extremely dominant showing against fourth-seed Paula Badosa. The Romanian won in straight sets 6-1, 6-2.
Amanda Anisimova is the last remaining American in the women’s draw, and she will be looking to reach a semi-final of a Grand Slam for just the second time in her career. This is already her best showing at Wimbledon, as she had previously only reached the second round.
Her biggest win in the competition so far came against her compatriot Cori Gauff, as she came back from a set down to win in three. She reached this stage of the competition after beating Harmony Tan in the round of 16 in straight sets. That was a strong display on Court 1, and she is unlikely to be fazed by playing on Centre Court after beating Gauff on the iconic surface last week.
