Ivanovic and Dimitrov supported for SW19 after weekend triumphs

| 16.06.2014

Weekend winners Grigor Dimitrov and Ana Ivanovic have both had their prices slashed for Wimbledon while Roger Federer continued his dominance in Halle to remain a popular choice for more SW19 glory.

Federer beat Columbian Alejandro Falla in successive tiebreaks to lift the title for the seventh time, making it in the process his joint most successful tournament along with the All England Championship.

The 32-year-old has gone on to win in south west London on five occasions after tuning up with victory in Germany and is a rock solid 6/1 to break his own record and go all the way for an eighth time.

There were more significant market moves following Dimitrov and Ivanovic’s achievements at Queen’s Club and Birmingham respectively, with the former’s price halved.

The Bulgarian is now only 20/1 after he saved a match point and fought off an on-form Feliciano Lopez in a high quality three set tussle.

Dimitrov has been held in high regard for some time and this season he is delivering on that promise, posting his best ever Grand Slam result in reaching the Australian Open quarter-finals before securing maximum prize money in Acapulco and Bucharest ahead of his first grass title last week.

Ivanovic has also seen her price shorten after maintaining her terrific form this campaign at the Aegon Championships.

The 2008 French Open champion had endured a difficult period after being catapulted onto the world stage six years ago but has looked ready to compete at the highest level again since winning in Auckland in her very first event of 2014.

Another title in Monterrey soon followed and her exploits at the weekend mean that no player on the WTA tour has won more matches with the Serb taking her tally to 37.

Ivanovic can still be backed at 40/1 to win her second Major next week and the manner of her victory in Edgbaston will surely guarantee plenty of interest.

The 26-year-old didn’t lose a set all week and was rarely threatened with four games the most conceded in any of the 10 she won.

With Wimbledon less than a week away few players will arrive with as much confidence and EW terms of ½ the odds for making the final appeal.
