Who Are The Favourites For The Women’s Crown At Wimbledon?

These are the players being tipped for glory at SW19 this summer
17:00, 07 Jun 2023

After Elena Rybakina’s withdrawal from the French Open due to a virus, people are starting to wonder how the Kazakhstan star’s preparations have been affected for Wimbledon as she returns to SW19 to defend her crown.

With just under a month until the third Grand Slam of the year gets underway, here are the players being tipped as the favourites for the women’s singles championship.

Iga Swiatek - 10/3 (FAV)

Poland’s Iga Swiatek has been incredible on the WTA Tour in the past few years and, at 22, she already has won three Grand Slam titles. At Wimbledon, however, she has only ever reached the fourth round, something she will be eager to change this time around.

Elena Rybakina - 4/1

As already mentioned, Elena Rybakina returns to the All England Lawn Tennis Club hoping to retain her title at Wimbledon. Since that triumph last summer, the 23-year-old has catapulted to one of the best players on Tour, reaching the Australian Open final and winning at Indian Wells.

Aryna Sabalenka - 9/2

Rybakina was defeated by Aryna Sabalenka in that Australian Open final as the Belarusian secured her first major title. After clearing that hurdle, there has been an increase in confidence in her performances and she is now unquestionably a bigger threat when each Grand Slam rolls around.

Ons Jabeur - 9/1

After narrowly missing out on her first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon last year, Ons Jabeur will be hoping that she can go all the way on this occasion to become the first African and Arab woman to win a major tournament. After making it to the US Open final since that Wimbledon defeat, she is edging closer to Grand Slam glory.


Caroline Garcia - 14/1

After claiming her biggest title to date at the WTA Finals in 2022, World number five Caroline Garcia has entered the conversation for a chance of Wimbledon glory. The 29-year-old’s best performance in SW19 has been the fourth round, which she has reached twice, the last time coming in 2022.

Coco Gauff - 14/1

Teenager Coco Gauff is one of the brightest young players on the WTA Tour. The American got to experience her first Grand Slam final at the French Open last year but to date she has been unable to get past the third round at Wimbledon. 

Petra Kvitova - 14/1

As a two-time Wimbledon champion, Petra Kvitova knows just what it takes to become a champion at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. However, it has been nine years since her last triumph in south west London, and in that time she has only reached one other Grand Slam final. Her spirited Miami Open triumph over Rybakina has given enough for people to think she might have a shot at a third Wimbledon crown.

Jelena Ostapenko - 20/1

Former French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko is surprisingly high on this list given that she has not reached a Grand Slam semi-final since 2018. However, she qualified for the quarter-finals at the Australian Open for the first time in January by beating top 10-ranked Gauff in the last 16.
