Both players are unseeded at Wimbledon. World No. 74 Svitolina is coming off a 7-5, 6-7, 6-2 victory over top-ranked Iga Swiatek in the quarterfinals.

No. 42 Vondrousova took down fourth-ranked Jessica Pegula 6-4, 2-6, and 6-4. She defeated four seeded players on her way to the Wimbledon semifinals.

Bet on Underdog Svitolina to Advance

Svitolina, the former No. 3 player in the world, has defeated Venus Williams, Sofia Lenin, Victoria Azarenka, and current No. 1 Swiatek of Poland during her surprising run to the semis. All four players are former major champions.

The Ukrainian player’s meteoric rise in this tournament is more remarkable considering she just returned from maternity leave three months ago.

Vondrousova is 2-0 in head-to-head matches against Svitolina including a 6-3, 6-1 victory win at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

But Vondrousova, the 24-year-old left-handed player from the Czech Republic, entered Wimbledon 2023 with only four career main-draw wins on grass per the WTA. She’s reeled off five straight wins on grass these past two weeks to reach the semifinal.

The surface better suits Svitolina, who now has 22 career wins on grass courts. Vondrousova also committed 35 unforced errors in her last match against Pegula. She somehow managed to rally and win the last five games of the final set to win that match. That’s not a recipe for long-term success.

There is slight concern about this being a potential let-down spot for the underdog, but we’re banking on Svitolina at plus-money and expect her run to continue. At +110, she has an implied probability of 47.62% to win the match.

Current Wimbledon Women’s Futures Odds

The winner of Svitolina vs. Vondrousova will be an underdog in the final based on current Wimbledon women’s futures odds at BetMGM. Aryna Sabalenka takes on Ons Jabeur in the other semifinal on Thursday. Sabalenka is the second-ranked player in the world, and Jabeur checks in at No. 6 in the current WTA rankings.
