Iga Swiatek is still waiting to play her best tennis at Wimbledon, but she has topped the WTA rankings since April 2022 and is the favourite to get her hands on the Venus Rosewater Dish in 2024.
The Polish player is a four-time Grand Slam winner, including three successes at the French Open, but she has found it harder to make inroads at Wimbledon and was toppled at the quarter-final stage in 2023, losing 5-7 7-6 2-6 to wild card Elina Svitolina.
Czech contender Marketa Vondrousova was the surprise winner, defeating Ons Jabeur 6-4 6-4 in the final.
Jabeur, a losing Wimbledon finalist for the second year running, is 10/1 to go one better next year, while Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka is a chance.

Success at the All England Club continues to elude Swiatek, who has never advanced beyond the quarter-finals in four visits to the event.
Swiatek has won the French Open three times in the last four seasons and is the reigning US Open champion.
The Belarussian has advanced to the semi-finals at each of the last four Grand Slams and lifted the Australian Open title earlier this year.
Sabalenka was edged aside 7-6 4-6 3-6 by Ons Jabeur in this year's Wimbledon semi-finals but, at the age of 25, she should have plenty more chances to become champion.
A run to the quarter-finals was a solid showing for 2022 champion Elena Rybakina, who has the game to continue to challenge at the major tournaments.
The 24-year-old Kazakh finished runner-up at this year's Australian Open, losing 6-3 4-6 3-6 to Sabalenka, but has generally struggled at the French and US Opens, failing to get past the third round at either event.
Time may be running out for 28-year-old Ons Jabeur, who has finished runner-up at the last two Wimbledons and is still searching for her first Grand Slam success.
The Tunisian must have fancied her chances against Vondrousova in this year's final, but she fell below her usual standards and was swept aside in straight sets.
Jabeur has played her best tennis in her mid to late twenties but she has lost three Grand Slam finals and will have to overcome a mental block if she is to triumph at the All England Club next year.
The American was seeded fourth this year and looked in excellent touch until losing 4-6 6-2 4-6 to Vondrousova in the final eight.
Pegula's loss to Vondrousova was her sixth successive defeat in a Grand Slam quarter-final.
Coco Gauff's last Wimbledon as a teenager ended swiftly with a 4-6 6-4 2-6 first round loss to compatriot Sofia Kenin, but there should be more to come from the 19-year-old, who is to win the tournament next year.
Landing a first round draw against Kenin, the 2020 Australian Open champion, was tough luck on Gauff, who has the ability to beat the best players when she fires on all cylinders.
Gauff has not gone beyond round four at Wimbledon but she will be looking to go deeper in 2024.
Few people would have picked out Vondrousova before the start of Wimbledon 2023, but the Czech was a worthy winner and she has the game to contend at future Grand Slams.
Vondrousova had to overcome four seeded players and was fairly dominant when defeating Jabeur 6-4 6-4 in the final.
She seems to be fully over her injury problems and would expect to go well again next year.
Svitolina has returned to form this year, reaching the quarter-finals of the French Open and the semi-finals at Wimbledon, and she will be hopeful of doing even better over the next 12 months.
The Ukrainian gave birth to her first child in October 2022 but has recovered quickly to play at a high level.
