Quarter Betting: Women’s Main Draw
Here are out Australian Open 2019 Women’s Quarter betting tips. With 2018 providing four different Grand Slam winners in the women’s game, it promises to be a fascinating battle in Melbourne to see who emerges victorious. The usual smattering of big names are joined by some of the hottest properties in women’s tennis in an intriguing draw at the Australian Open this year. Kiki Bertens is the biggest name to have fallen thus far in Melbourne meaning there are plenty of potential suitors for the Australian Open title this season.
Here are our Quarter Betting Australian Open predictions:
Very rarely is a quarter so packed with big names; however, the Australian Open this year has thrown up a remarkable draw. Seven-time champion Serena Williams is the player everyone is hoping to avoid and she finds herself right in the mix in quarter 1. Her progress so far has been incident-free and at 13/10 with Betstars, she looks good value to progress to the last 4.
World number 1 Simona Halep may be berating her tough draw at Melbourne this week as she looks to add to her trophy cabinet. The Romanian is 9/2 with Ladbrokes to edge past Serena and reach the semi-final stage.
Former world number 1 Karolina Pliskova endured a quiet 2018; however, she has undoubted potential and at 5/1 with Bet365 is one to watch this week.
Another Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza also struggled in 2018, dropping out of the world’s top 10; however, her talent is unquestionable and she looks real value at 11/2 with Coral if she can get her game together.
Number 4 seed and 2018 US Open Champion Naomi Osaka looks to be the leading light of the female game currently and the Japanese superstar looks great value at 7/4 with MansionBet to reach the semi-finals in her pursuit of consecutive slams.
Elina Svitolina is another player that has promised a huge amount without delivering and the Ukrainian will be hoping to break her Grand Slam duck here and looks reasonable value at 13/5 with MansionBet.
Hard-hitting American Madison Keys is another player that is yet to fulfil her potential but with a game well suited to the Australian Open courts she could be one to back at 5/1 with Bet-at-Home.
Latvian Anastasija Sevastova is seeded 13 this week and has enjoyed an excellent turn of the year and will be very much in the mix this week in Melbourne. She looks significantly overpriced at 6/1 with Bet365 to reach her maiden Grand Slam semi-final.
Arguably the most open quarter in the draw is quarter three with an exciting mix of youth and experience making it very difficult to call. Aryna Sabalenka has emerged as one of the hottest properties on the WTA Tour in recent months and the Belarussian looks well placed to reach her first Grand Slam semi-final at 5/2 with William Hill.
Homegrown star Ashleigh Barty is another emerging talent on the tour and the Australian cricket-convert is another one to watch at 7/2 with Bet365.
Petra Kvitova is an experienced campaigner on the tour; despite not playing her best tennis of late, she can still turn it on when she needs to and is sure to be in the mix at 4/1 with Ladbrokes come next weekend.
Defending champion Caroline Wozniacki hasn’t been able to replicate her title-winning form since last January; however, she is best suited to hardcourt tennis and could be well worth a punt at 11/2 with Betstars to reach the semi-finals this year.
2018 Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber is very much back at the top of the women’s game following her remarkable season last term; the German looks well placed at 6/5 with Bet365 to reach the last 4 in Melbourne.
Sloane Stephens possesses Grand Slam-winning credentials following her 2017 US Open triumph; the American will push Kerber all the way at 7/2 with Bet-at-Home.
Aliaksandra Sasnovich is another of the emerging generation on the WTA Tour and the Belarussian; she looks capable of causing a shock in her quarter at 7/1 with William Hill.
Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia had a quiet 2018; however, she has mixed it with the world’s elite many times before and she could be a viable outside punt at 8/1 with Coral to reach the last 4 this week.
