Aija Tomljanovic 2-1 (+450)

This week in Wimbledon, we'll have a rare selection of high-value wagers to make through the next 3-4 days. Since we anticipate a higher-volume of plays during this period, we're releasing "micro-articles," shorter write-ups with more options available. Let's get started!

8:00 AM EST. Aija Tomljanovic might be best known for her villainous defeat of Serena Williams two years ago in the legend's last match of her career, in front of Americans at the U.S. Open, no less, but the 31-year old Croatian still has plenty she wants to accomplish. Out of her best form in 2023, Tomljanovic has always played well on grass and so far she's brought it this grass season, getting to the finals at Valencia and scoring some impressive victories at the Birmingham Classic. She'll oppose Jelena Ostapenko in one of the best first round matches on the women's side, one that could get heated as we've seen before between these two competitors. Tomljanovic bested Ostapenko back in 2021 at Wimbledon and lately the Latvian cannot be trusted, sinking back into her old ways where she can seemingly lose against anyone at any time, regardless of the surface. She's just 2-5 since the French Open. Ostapenko's confusing form and a resurgent Tomljanovic is a combination worth a wager in what should be a long, raucous battle.
