Australian Open Odds Day 4: WTA Second Round

Alize Cornet vs. Garbine Muguruza

Spain’s Garbine Muguruza is amongst the top favorites to win the Australian Open, but she faces a tough second-round matchup with Alize Cornet. The French veteran advanced into the second round with a straight-set win over Viktoriya Tomova. Muguruza and Cornet are tied 2-2 in head to heads, but Cornet won the last two meetings. The most recent was a three-set triumph in the quarterfinals of Berlin last year. 

Muguruza is the runaway favorite at -600 while Cornet is an underdog at +400 to win this matchup. Considering past trends between them and the fact that both – Cornet especially – are dogged competitors that fight until the last point…well, this matchup may be closer than the odds would suggest in the end. Thus, a bet on either player is a reasonable expectation, although hedging bets on a three-setter might be the better play. 

Sorana Cirstea vs. Kristina Kucova

Sorana Cirstea upset Petra Kvitova in the first round. Next up is Slovakia’s Kristina Kucova, who advanced with a straight-set win over Misaka Doi. The market for this game is skewed in Cirstea’s favor, largely because of her big scalp in the first round. However, after a big win, it’s not uncommon for players to experience a letdown. Moreover, very little separates this pair, increasing the chance of an upset by Kucova. 

Xinyu Wang vs. Aryna Sabalenka

Aryna Sabalenka survived a first-round scare, coming back from a set down to defeat home favorite Storm Sanders 5-7, 6-3, 6-2. She faces a much easier opponent in the second round in Xinyu Wang, but she can’t take anything for granted. Sabalenka committed too many unforced errors and her serving yips are a constant problem. The conditions in the first round – a night match on Rod Laver Arena, a home favorite and a crowd absorbed by the contest – bring with it an atmosphere that top players typically thrive on. It remains to be seen whether Sabalenka can summon the same kind of enthusiasm and fight back if things start to go wrong again against Wang. The Chinese player is an up-and-coming youngster and she may well capitalize on Sabalenka’s errors to her benefit.

Danka Kovinic vs. Emma Raducanu

Emma Raducanu won a topsy-turvy contest against Sloane Stephens in the first round, 6-0, 2-6, 6-1. Next up is Danka Kovinic, who needed three sets to beat Jang Su-Jeong. On paper, this is a much easier contest for Raducanu. Kovinic ranks on the fringe of the top 100. She went 2-2 in her Australian Open preparations, but most of those were qualifying matches. Only once did she make the main draw in Adelaide and only as a lucky loser.
