by Steve Hastings on Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

Wimbledon 2008 Serena Williams and Ana Ivanovic: The lady’s top seeded Ana Ivanovic will be in second round action on Court No. 1 Wednesday, and so will the 6th seeded American Serena Williams. Both these ladies are coming off fairly easy first round straight-set victories to start this Championships Wimbledon 2008. SportsBook.com has the Wimbledon 2008 Serena Williams and Ana Ivanovic betting odds.  

Of course Ivanovic comes into this Wimbledon 2008 after finally capturing her first Grand Slam title in Paris, after 2 previous unsuccessful attempts. In her second round match up, the young Serbian will be taking on the 29 year-old French Nathalie Dechy.

Even though Ivanovic is still just 20 years old, these two opponents have already met a total of three times. It’s worth noting that Ivanovic has won all three of their past affairs, however, this will be the first on grass. In this Wimbledon 2008 second round match, Ana Ivanovic is -3000 betting odds favorite to prevail against Nathalie Dechy +1200.

For the Americans, the 6th seeded Serena Williams will also be in second round action Wednesday in London. Serena is also coming off an easy first round victory, as she looks to improve her seeding after being upset in Paris earlier this month.

Being the 6th seed, the glamorous Serena will find herself in unfamiliar surroundings, as her match against Urszula Radwanska will be played away from the two main show courts. Serena’s opponent, the 17 year-old Urszula Radwanska, is a terrific match and is sure to draw big crowds.

Urszula Radwanska is younger sister of the more famous Agnieszka, winner of Eastbourne last weekend. In this Wimbledon 2008 second round match, Serena Williams is -3000 betting odds favorite to defeat Urszula Radwanska (+1200).

In other Wimbledon 2008 Wednesday Women's 2nd round play:

Svetlana Kuznetsova (-400) vs. Kateryna Bondarenko (+250).
