We saw Medvedev dominate Rublev yesterday 3 sets to 0, just as expected. Rublev has still yet to win a set against Medvedev in 5 matchups. Pegula came out strong and one the first set against Brady, but unfortunately, it was all down hill from there. She ended up losing the 2nd and 3rd sets 6-2, and 6-1. As the numbers show, the wheels fell off the track.

There are two really good matchups today between the women that we are going to take a look at. We are now into the semifinals.

Women’s Singles

Naomi Osaka vs. Serena Williams

This is quite a matchup we have on our hands today. Both of my 2 outright winner picks are facing off, meaning we automatically have one of our bets making it to the finals. I’m taking Serena Williams in this one at +130 odds, solely because of the experience she has over Osaka. I’m thinking Vegas is favoriting Osaka here because she has beaten Williams in her career, 2 times to her 1 loss. Expect a great match here.

Pick: Serena Williams @ +130 (Click To Bet)

Karolina Muchova vs. Jennifer Brady

I’m taking the underdog yet again here with Muchova at +150. These two have only faced off one other time in that was in May of 2019, where Muchova won 2 sets to 1.  I like Muchova here because she is coming off an outstanding win against Ashleigh Barty. I expect Muchova to come into this one used to the feeling as the underdog and ready to strike at any opportunity.

Pick: Karolina Muchova @ +150 (Click To Bet)

Australian Open Picks

The Australian Open is the first grand slam of the tennis year. It's held each year from Melbourne Park in Australia and although the 2021 tournament has had some struggles because of Covid-19 it's still seen all the major players compete.

The Australian Open was first held in 1905 and is believed to be the biggest sporting event in the Southern Hemisphere. It's a hard surface and has been since changing from grass in 1988. The current male champion is Novak Djokovic and the female singles champion is Sofia Kenin.
