Wimbledon day ten preview 

While the top seeds have been dropping like flies, world number four Elena Rybakina has been going quietly about her business and the 2022 Wimbledon champion is now best-priced 4-7 with Hills to regain her All England Club title.

The classy Kazakh has dropped only one set in her five assignments and she made light work of Elina Svitolina in the quarter-final, easing to a 6-3 6-2 success.

Bookmakers are expecting more of the same against Barbora Krejcikova in her semi-final showdown, although the Czech performer won the French Open in 2021 and is looking resurgent.

The other last-four duel sees seventh seed Jasmine Paolini, who was runner-up at the French Open last month and has carried that form forward into the grass-court campaign, against the unseeded Donna Vekic, the only member of the remaining quartet to be featuring in her maiden Grand Slam semi-final.

Barbora Krejcikova vs Elena Rybakina predictions

With her closest rivals having faltered, Rybakina looks set to take some stopping in her pursuit of a second Wimbledon crown, but she may have to dig deep to come past Krejcikova.

The fourth seed’s serve is proven to be extremely effective on grass and in the last three rounds she has faced a total of only six breakpoints, showing the task Krejcikova is up against.

But Krejcikova is solid in all departments and the former French Open winner has looked back to her best in south-west London.

The Czech world number 27 will be buoyed by the fact that she has won both past meetings with Rybakina 2-1 and she may be more competitive than the prices suggest.

Rybakina can justify favouritism but Krejcikova, having recorded straight-sets successes over Danielle Collins and Jelena Ostapenko in the last two rounds, is much better than her ranking implies and may make her work hard for her rewards.

Donna Vekic vs Jasmine Paolini predictions

Paolini had it all to prove on the grass, having suffered first-round exits on her three previous trips to Wimbledon, but the Italian has quashed those concerns with this semi-final run.

The 28-year-old is a bit of a late bloomer but her runner-up effort to Iga Swiatek at last month’s French Open plus her heroics at Wimbledon must mark her as the most consistent player on the WTA Tour at present.

It has been a relatively straightforward run to the final four for the world number seven, who has dropped only one set in five matches and she was a dominant 6-2 6-1 winner over Emma Navarro in her quarter-final.

Given Navarro had easily accounted for Naomi Osaka and second seed Coco Gauff, that form looks strong and makes Paolini, who has lost only two of her last 15 matches, incredibly difficult to oppose.

Vekic deserves plenty of praise for reaching her first Grand Slam semi-final but the Croatian has been through the wringer, dropping sets in four of her five victories, and that is despite Dayana Yastremska being the only seeded player she has come up against.

The world number 37 has spent a total of over ten hours on court and may be physically and mentally drained, which is not the ideal preparation for a showdown with the high-octane Paolini.

The Italian was a 7-6 6-2 winner when these two met in Montreal last August and she should cover the handicap on her way to what would be back-to-back Grand Slam finals.
