17th Jan 2016 | Australian Open
Women's Australian Open Winner Tip: Victoria Azarenka
A two-time champion in Melbourne who suddenly looks fitter than all her traditional rivals.
A remarkable number of the top players in the women’s draw for the Australian Open arrive with injury concerns including world number one Serena Williams.
The 34-year-old has failed to complete a competitive match since losing in the semi-finals of the US Open and must be opposed at the top of the market.
Other with fitness concerns include Sharapova, Halep, Kvitova and Radwanska. The big name looking sharp and raring to go is Victoria Azarenka, available at best odds of 4/1 to go all the way.
The two-time champion in Melbourne already, the Belarusian looks back to her best after a convincing title win in Brisbane last week in which she didn’t so much as lose a set.
The feisty baseliner has the game for the tournament and the other big names are struggling before we’re even underway.
