With the exit of short favourite, Serena Williams it was always going to be a “long shot” that won Wimbledon on the WTA side this year, the question was how high?
In the end, Marion Bartoli completely took Sabine Lisicki apart in the Final and was the victor, having been matched as high as 810 in the markets at the start of the tournament. I am not quite sure how anyone could have had the foresight to have backed her at any odds at the start of the tournament but those who were laying her must not be feeling great about it today.
The final itself was a bit disappointing with Lisicki not putting up much of a fight, despite being 1.50 favourite. It is obviously easier to say in hindsight but I did feel the prices were a bit wrong and that, perhaps, Bartoli should have been favourite in this match since she has a bit more experience on her side. That being said, I never backed up my opinion before the match by backing her and I certainly did not expect it to be as easy as it was for her in the end.
Lisicki broke in just the first game of the match and immediately traded as low as 1.28. This is a nailed on lay at that point since with the best part of at least 2 sets still to play there is a very strong possibility the price will trade higher before the end. In the end it was proved to be a huge over reaction to a single break point but that is how the tennis markets work and long may they carry on like that!
Not sure I remember a bigger priced Wimbledon winner in recent years so this is a bit of a collectors item!
