The women will contest the first of this year’s Wimbledon singles semi-finals, with favourite Serena Williams taking on Maria Sharapova after Garbine Muguruza and Agnieszka Radwanska do battle.
Match-betting margins are small ahead of the latter contest, but the bookies are surer about the former, going 1/5 that the overlord of the women’s game snares the spoils against her Russian counterpart.
Such is their certainty of an easy Williams win, they’re promoting a massive 13/5 about the fixture requiring three sets.
However, with the American on a five-match streak of flawless victories against this foe it may be worth siding with the enhanced double offered instead.
Should Williams and Radwanska come through their respective last-four matches, a boosted price of 33/20 is the bounty.
Ample factors suggest the wager will romp home, with one half of it nigh on certain to cop.
Serena has toppled Sharapova in 17 of their 19 career meetings, winning every contest since 2004.
Their most recent grass court duels have ended 2-0 to the world number one, with the latest resulting in only one game being dropped.
Shara may have dropped just a solitary set en route to this stage, but she has yet to encounter a challenge of this magnitude, with each of her Wimbledon 2015 opponents thus far ranked outside the world’s top 30.
Having lost just four times on the green stuff in seven years, this is poised to be another routine victory for Williams.
Radwanska, on the other hand, has something of a tougher task to surmount.
She’s even-money underdog against 17/20 Muguruza, who has been in splendid form at SW19.
Prior to this season, the Spaniard had never ventured beyond the second round here, but her novice status makes her worth opposing against a former All England finalist.
The Pole is a frequenter of the deep end of this competition and, having derailed the Madison Keys runaway train in the quarters she’ll fancy herself to stop another in-form youngster when she next steps on court.
With 12 wins from 14 on grass so far, she’s having her best season on this surface by some distance and looks a great price at evens.
