This match is scheduled last on centre court and with a poor weather forecast, might start very late, if at all today. These two tend to have close matches, as you might expect, Sharapova leads the h2h 3-2, with Venus taking their only meeting on grass, here in 2005.

Neither has looked in the best of shape so far, Williams has been close to going out twice and Sharapova is still feeling that shoulder injury. Her serving stats, especially the ace count,are down and she is definitely taking it a little easy. This is to say nothing of the mental scars, I still feel she is carrying from Australia. Venus, like her sister, can suddenly find form from nowhere and she might be inspired by Serena's battling performance yesterday. Feel sure that this will trade at less than the current odds in running and I would suggest taking this and looking to trade out, or at least cover our stakes, when she takes a set. That is what I will do, but for the purpose of the blog, will stick with the selection.

3.5 points Williams to beat Sharapova 3.65 Betfair.

Good Luck.
