Marketa Vondrousova has had a sort of easy ride at the 2023 Wimbledon, with the highest-ranked player she’s defeated so far being the WTA No. 4 Jessica Pegula. The two met in the quarterfinal and the Czech player won 2-1 in sets.
In the semifinal, she defeated the Ukrainian sensation Elina Svitolina, who was probably way too tired after knocking out such heavyweights as Iga Swiatek and Victoria Azarenka.
That said, Vondrousova’s hardest challenge comes in the form of Ons Jabeur whom she’ll battle for the 2023 Wimbledon trophy. The Tunisian player came very close to winning this tournament last year, but Elena Rybakina crushed her dreams in the final.
Jabeur has already gotten her revenge on the Kazakhstani player, beating Rybakina 2-1 in the quarterfinal. Then, in the semifinal, she beat the WTA No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka, once again in three sets.
She entered that match as an underdog, and at the beginning, it seemed the bookies were right to favor the Russian player. After losing the first set, however, Jabeur switched into top gear and beat her opponent in the following two.
Marketa Vondrousova vs. Ons Jabeur Prediction
The fact that Vondrousova is 42nd in the WTA Rankings, while Jabeur is sitting in the No. 6 spot explains why Wimbledon odds are favoring the Tunisian. Sure, upsets do happen at Wimbledon, but we have faith in Jabeur to get the job done on July 15.
