Wimbledon Overview



Wimbledon is in the books and saw two first time champions in Marion Bartoli and Andy Murray. In the words of Maria Kirilenko, The Overrule's assessment of this Wimbledon as far as our own performance can be summed up as such...


In the outright markets Tomas Berdych (50/1) and Petra Kvitova (14/1) both reached the last eight but could not progress any further. Berdych had his chances in the opening two sets against world number one Novak Djokovic, particularly in the second set where he led by a double break. However, his lead vanquished within the blink of an eye and what looked like being a heavyweight tussle turned into a breeze for the Serbian.

Kvitova was the victim of Kirsten Flipkens and illness in the quarter-finals and what looked to be a great chance for the Czech to win her second Wimbledon title in three years soon turned into the story of her season - which was another disappointing exit.

Sabine Lisicki was vastly overrated by the market following her win over Serena Williams and Agnieszka Radwanska (11/4) came within two points of reaching a successive Wimbledon final against the German. That defeat may live long in Radwanska's memory. Her record against Marion Bartoli is a perfect 7-0 and Aga had won 14 consecutive sets against her. It's unlikely an opportunity will present itself like that again for the Pole in the near future.
