There’s been some big positives this week ahead of Wimbledon on the British front. While Andy Murray is a clear contender in the men’s draw, over in the women’s side of things home fans at Wimbledon haven’t had all that much to cheer about.
With Laura Robson still working her way back after a long absence from the game because of illness and injury, all eyes will be on British hopes Heather Watson and Johanna Konta at SW19.
Australian-born Konta, ranked 146th in the world made some huge strides this week at the Aegon International at Eastbourne, claiming her first ever top ten win as she dumped Ekaterina Makarova out of the tournament and then followed it up with a win over WTA rising star Garbine Muguruza to reach the quarterfinals of a WTA event for the first time in her career.
Watson has failed to nail down any consistency this season, but she got some huge praise from Simona Halep recently, who said that the Brit could be in the world’s top 20. Watson goes unseeded though
Like Robson, Watson has had a lot of injury problems too but she has a great fighting attitude on the court. Neither Watson (200/1 at Bet365) or Konta (150/1 at Bet365) are going to win Wimbledon (this year) but they should draw some patriotic interest in match betting throughout the early stages, so follow the progress of them with Bet365 live in-play betting.
