Serena Williams Injury

Updated (Tuesday, 6/29/2021 3:10 p.m. EST): Serena Williams retired from her first-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich due to injury. With Williams out of Wimbledon, Ashleigh Barty is favored to win it all at +320, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. She's followed by Aryna Sabalenka (+650) and Garbine Muguruza (+750).

The storied and prestigious tennis tournament that is Wimbledon is now underway and it is full of big-name players looking to take home the title. World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty is narrowly favored over No. 6 Serena Williams in the odds to win it all heading into Round 2.

Wimbledon Women's Odds

Barty currently has odds set at +550 to win Wimbledon and Williams follows closely behind at +600, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Meanwhile, the rest of the top six is filled out by Aryna Sabalenka (+900), Garbine Muguruza (+1200), Iga Swiatek (+1700), and Angelique Kerber (+2300).

Barty took down Carla Suarez Navarro in three sets (6-1, 6-7, 6-1) in what turned out to be an exciting Round 1 showdown Tuesday morning. Meanwhile, Williams is set to face Aliaksandra Sasnovich in Round 1 and heads into that match as a -1100 favorite on the moneyline.

Both of these powerhouse women's tennis players are coming off subpar finishes at the French Open. Neither one of them reached the quarterfinals of that tournament and they seem motivated to make up for it now.

Keep an eye on how these odds change as Wimbledon continues to roll on.
