Sharapova Still Third Favourite For Wimbledon Despite French Snub

William Hill have eased the odds of Maria Sharapova winning this year’s Wimbledon following her French Open snub. She is 8/1 from 7/1 and is third favourite behind Angelique Kerber at 5/1 and Garbine Muguruza at 6/1.

“The French snub will have cheesed off Sharapova and despite the fact that she will have to work her socks off in order to get to there, we think that she is still amongst the favourites to win Wimbledon this year,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Ladies’ Wimbledon singles winner: 5/1 Angelique Kerber; 6/1 Garbine Muguruza; 8/1 Maria Sharapova; 9/1 Karolina Pliskova; 10/1 Johanna Konta; 12/1 Madison Keys; 16/1 Coco Vandeweghe; 16/1 Simona Halep; 25/1 BAR
