WTA Australian Open

WTA Australian Open

Tsurenko + 6.5 Games to beat Barty @ 11-10 Barty has been in excellent form this season but Tsurenko is a player that can cause any player problems as she has a strong game with no huge weaknesses only her inability to stay fit and healthy has held her back and the handicap here is too big. 

Kenin + 2.5 Games to beat Keys @ 29-25 Keys leads the head to head 3-1 but having won the Adelaide tournament it does not give her much rest time before starting again against a very difficult opponent and former winner here 2 years ago. Also the media are all jumping on Keys and the value would now in my opinion lie with her underestimated opponent. 

Martic + 3.5 Games to beat Teichmann @ 27-25 Martic has the better serve and if she serves well then this match could be closer than the odds suggest, Martics form has been poor of late but Teichmann has not exactly been flying and looking at the career win loss records on hard courts it reads Martic 26-24 compared to Teichmann 28-22 and I am happy to take a chance on Martic bouncing back to form and keeping this contest fairly close. 

Diaz + 5.5 Games to beat Jabeur @ 11-10 Looks a crazy handicap price here for Diaz as looking at the win loss records on hard courts they are almost identical with Jabeur 34-16 compared to Diaz 37-13 now although some of these matches for Diaz have been on the ITF circuit she has still won and grown in confidence, she has had an almost perfect warm up reaching the Quarter final and then losing in the second round so she comes here having won some matches but also nice and fresh, Jabeur retired in her last match. 

Kalinina + 3.5 Games to beat Pegula @ 117-100 Kalinina leads the head to head 2-0 with them both and interesting in both matches combined Kalinina has faced just 8 break points on serve but Pegula has faced 22 which may point towards Kalinina having a good read of her serve with her aggressive return game and I am expecting her to put a lot of pressure on Pegula here and at least win a set to over the handicap.
