2020 Australian Open Women’s Quarterfinals Odds, Preview & Picks
- When: January 27 – 28
- Where: Melbourne Park
Ashleigh Barty vs Petra Kvitova
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Barty -147 / Kvitova +106
Few top seeds have dominated the way Ashleigh Barty has. An Australian from Ipswich, Barty has mowed through her first 4 opponents. She did lose the second set 1-6 to Alison Riske in the fourth round, though. But Ashleigh bounced back with a huge 6-4 third set.
Barty has played great, Petra Kvitova has played better. The lone set she lost, 6-7 (4-7) versus Maria Sakkari in Round 4, fired her up. Kvitova proceeded to dominate Sakkari 6-3, 6-2. Kvitova lost in the finals last year. She’s determined to win the Aussie Open this year. Back Petra.
Tennis Betting Pick: Petra Kvitova
Sofia Kenin vs Ons Jabeur
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Kenin -243 / Jabeur +171
Sofia Kenin impressed in her fourth-round win over Cori Gauff. The 15-year-old played well to take the first set 7-6 (7-5). But then Kenin rolled Gauff 6-3, 6-0. Kenin’s play impressed so much that she’s an underlay against Ons Jabeur.
Jabeur knocked out Qiang Wang in her last. Wang, who bested Serena Williams in the third round, appeared tired. Not to take anything away from Ons. But Jabeur faces a young American who’s starting to feel like she can’t lose. This tournament could be the one that puts Sofia on the map. The chalk takes this.
Tennis Betting Pick: Sofia Kenin
Anett Kontaveit vs Simona Halep
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Kontaveit +173 / Halep -250
Simona has a tendency to struggle in the quarterfinals of major tournaments. That won’t happen versus Kontaveit. Halep hasn’t lost a set at the 2020 Australian Open. She’s won her last 3 matches in straight sets. Also, Anett required 4-sets to beat Iga Swiatek in her fourth-round win. Halep is fresh while Kontaveit might be tired.
Tennis Betting Pick: Simona Halep
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs Garbine Muguruza
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Pavlyuchenkova +154 / Muguruza -222
Garbine Muguruza enters her quarterfinals match versus Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova after 2 straight victories over Top 10 seeds. Garbine beat 5-seed Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-2. In Round 4, she knocked out 9-seed Kiki Bertens 6-3, 6-3.
Anastasia has played 9-sets in her last couple of matches. She battled Angelique Kerber for 5-sets in her fourth-round win. She should get tired during the second set. Muguruza sends Pavlyuchenkova home.
Tennis Betting Pick: Garbine Muguruza
