Wimbledon 2019 Women's Predictions for the Finals

"I've been waiting for this moment for all my life" but not with the negative undertone of Phil Collins's song. This moment has eluded Serena Williams' for over two years, ever since she went on maternity leave. Since then she's lost two major championship finals. She's always the favorite even when playing someone the caliber of Simona Halep.

My WTA US OPEN 2016 - Finals Pick, BRACKET ONE

Another major tournament and again the biggest disappointment is Garbine Muguruza, who lost in the second round. We are not being unfair to Muguruza. Ponder the numbers: 7 of the top 8 seeds made it to the Round of 16, and 4 of the next 8 seeds made it

That is not to say my bracket is not busted. IT IS!!!  I ended up with a 7 of 16 correct picks for a 43.75% output. Names in red were not my original selection, so I most likely will not pick them to go too far but I will give credit where it is due.

WTA Wimbledon 2016 Finals Wrap-up

When it comes to Tennis, picking the favorite to win a grand slam title is easy. I had Serena winning Wimbledon 2016, yet I was one match away from picking her opponent. Angelique Kerber solidified her Top 2 ranking. She, Garbine Muguruza and Victoria Azarenka are three bona fide opponents who will stand in Serena’s way as she tries to reach the ultimate record of 25 women’s grand slam singles titles.
