Lisicki to beat Radwanska, but aces market the safer betting play

| 04.07.2013

A new addition to the list of female tennis Grand Slam winners is guaranteed at Wimbledon and it is Sabine Lisicki that should be backed at 4/7 to reach the final at the expense of Agnieskza Radwanska.

Lisicki has had the toughest route of all players to the last four, beating three former Grand Slam winners, including ending the 34-match victorious streak of Serena Williams.

However, it is Radwanska that has needed the maximum of three sets to win her last three matches and the thigh problem that required a medical timeout in her last clash with Na Li is a put-off to her chances.

It is 11/8 that Radwanska makes the Wimbledon final for the second straight year and this will look a big price to some, bearing in mind that she is the higher seed and triumphed for the loss of just three games on the last occasion the pair met on the hard courts of Dubai last year.

The biggest banker for the clash is that Lisicki will serve the most aces regardless of who prevails, but a price of 1/7 is not going to enable punters to retire anytime soon.

Lisicki has served three times as many aces as Radwanska at the tournament and even managed to out-serve Williams in the fourth round, which is no mean feat.

Those wanting better value may prefer the 5/6 that over 7.5 aces are served in the match, which is a line that Lisicki has covered on her own in two of her last three matches. It is especially hard not anticipating this line to be covered if this clash goes to three sets.

Meanwhile, Radwanska has had her serve broken in the very first game of the match in her last two rounds with Tsvetana Pironkova and Li and so the 4/6 offered that Lisicki breaks serve first could be worthy of some attention.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
