Dinara Safina - Wimbeldon 2011
Rapidly earning herself a reputation as the 'Bridesmaid' as she is still yet to claim ger first Grand Slam title despite reaching the final of three Grand Slam events. She lost at the beginning of last year to Serena Williams in the final of the Australian Open and lost again in the 2009 French Open final to Svetlana Kuznetsova. It was her second successive defeat in the final of that tournament following her defeat in 2008 and she will be eager to put that record right asap.
Following her excellent form last year she rose to World No.1 in the rankings despite not winning a Grand Slam, she was remarkably consisent on the tour which gave her that lofty position. She has slipped somewhat in recent months but inside the top ten so has to be a real danger at SW19.
Her best performance at Wimbledon was a Semi-Final appearance last year when she was at the top of the game and she will be looking to match that in 2010. Previously to last year she had struggled on the grass but does have the power and determination needed to do well. However, there does look to be a number of other ladies in a better position that Safina to do well this year so she is one we would avoid in the Wimbledon Betting. She can be backed at around 25/1 in the Wimbledon womens betting for the tournament this year and we reckon those odds are just about spot on considering a her current form.
