Tennis Betting Advice - January 2023
Reasons to expect the unexpected in Melbourne...
Thursday 12th January 2023
Good evening. I said the other day that this sport never ceases to amaze me. And it's happened again...
Our 12/1 pick Veronika Kudermetova saved five match points against Danielle Collins. Coming from a set down to beat the American 4-6, 7-6, 6-1.
The Russian moves through to the WTA Adelaide semi final, where she'll take on the favourite Belinda Bencic on Friday morning (8am). These two have had some good battles in the past - the head-to-head is 5-4 to Bencic.
From 12/1 (13.0) and 11/1 (12.0) Each Way when we backed her at the start of the week, Kudermetova is now 11/4 (3.75) at best to win the trophy.
It's been a good week so far for the Kudermetova sisters...
With Veronika's younger sister, 19-year-old Polina Kudermetova, coming through three rounds of Australian Open Qualifying. Reaching the main draw of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career.
Polina was one of three winning legs from our five-fold midweek match acca on the Aussie Open qualifiers. No 9/1 payout there, but we'll be going again very soon at big prices...
With the first Grand Slam of 2023 kicking off in Melbourne on Sunday night - and plenty of ammo for our big-odds betting approach at this tournament. Especially in the women's event...
I've been going over my women's Grand Slam stats. And the numbers paint an interesting and exciting picture...
Here are the key points to consider, as we are about to embark on our latest big-price Outright Winner pursuit Down Under...
15 of the last 28 women's Grand Slams have been won by players lifting a Major trophy for the first time
Since the Australian Open 2017, when Serena Williams won her last Major:
The last 23 women's Grand Slams have produced 15 different winners
8 of the last 11 women's Grand Slams have produced at least one finalist at day-one odds of 33/1
The last 9 women's Grand Slam finals have featured 7 players at odds of 100/1
And 4 of the last 9 women's Grand Slams have produced a 100/1+ champion
Plenty of prices and potential 'surprise' scenarios to get the juices flowing there...
And if that's not enough, consider also that these three star names - each of them previous Australian Open & multiple Grand Slam winners - won't be competing in Melbourne:
Serena Williams (7-time Aussie Open champ)
Naomi Osaka (2021 and 2019 champ)
Ashleigh Barty (2022 champ)
And in among that recent batch of silverware dished out Down Under: here at Ones to Watch we were on Aussie Open 2020 winner Sofia Kenin at 50/1, and last year's runner-up Danielle Collins at 66/1 Each Way...
And that's just the women's...!
