Serena Williams Factor
Now, 38 years old Serena Williams’s reputation is secure for being on women’s tennis Mount Rushmore. Williams is multiple winners of all four grand slam events. Of great concern is her understandable decline in production. Williams last won a major at the 2017 Australian Open. Most of all from a gambling perspective Williams remains a powerful brand. Thus, the price on her in major tournaments is higher than what it should be. In brief, Williams is a classic example of how casual public money can skew actual wagering value.
