The 2014 Wimbledon Championship is right around the corner. To help you fantasy junkies, here are the women's fantasy tennis rankings for the 2014 Wimbledon Championship.
Kerber made it to the fourth round at the Australian Open and will heading to London brimming with confidence. She was a Semi Finalist here back in 2012 and she will be looking to be the first German to win here since Steffi Graff back in 1996. She has struggled on grass at times, though, so expect her to drop a bit in the rankings.
Azarenka has only played in 11 matches this year, so she won’t be on top of her game at the All England Club. However, she was a Semi Finalist at Wimbledon in 2011 and 2012. She has always played well on grass and the Belarusian will be a decent sleeper pick in London.
The Serbian princess was knocked out in the third round of the French Open, but she rebounded with a win at the AEGON Classic. It was her first career win on grass and will have many fantasy fans excited about here potential at Wimbledon.
Kvitova enters Wimdleon with a WTA ranking of six. She won Wimbledon back in 2011, but it was the only Grand Slam title of her career. Kvitova is 2-2 in Grand Slams this year and will at least make it past the first two rounds.
Radwanska was a finalist here in 2012 and she has had a string of successful doubles rounds here as well. She is currently ranked fourth, but will come with some risk after being knocked out in the first round during the AEGON International.
Jankovic will participate in her 11th Wimbledon Championship next week. She is 30-13 on the year and has made it to the fourth round here four different times. Jankovic will a decent veteran player to gamble on this month in London.
The Romanian is 25-8 on the year and narrowly lost to Maria Sharapova in the finals of the 2014 French Open. She has been ultra aggressive this spring and the new No. 3 will have a pretty easy road through the bracket this year. Look for her to coast into the third round.
Sharapova hasn’t won Wimbledon since back in 2004 when she was 17 years old, but she dominated the 2014 French Open. She is red-hot right now and seems primed to win another Grand Slam. She should have no problem reaching the Quarter Finals this year.
Na was on the verge of claiming the No. 1 women’s rankings this month. She unfortunately was knocked out in the first round of the French Open and was unable to move up in the rankings. Na has luckily reached the Quarter Finals here four times over the last seven years and she will look to bounce back at the All England Club.
Williams has won Wimbledon five times (2002, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2012) throughout her illustrious career. She may have been forced out in the fourth round last year, but her past success at Wimbledon speaks volumes for her fantasy value. Consider Williams the top fantasy option in London this month.
