- Simona Halep to beat Jennifer Brady in straight sets at 11/10 with Paddy Power
- Nick Kyrios to win 3-0 against Lorenzo Sonego at 10/11 with Paddy Power
Halep, Wawrinka & Rafa the Ones to Watch on Day 2
Rain didn’t dampen the spirits on an exciting Day 1 of the Australian Open, with big names like Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka easing through.
Day two is expected to provide as much excitement with Nadal, Wawrinka and Heather Watson looking to progress.
Rafael Nadal v Hugo Dellien Betting Odds
Dellien is a 25/1 outsider with Ladbrokes and offers little chance of an upset. Straight sets for the Spaniard is 2/11 Coral, but we’d take up the 6-0 set enhanced odds offer from the same bookie..
Nick Kyrgios v Lorenzo Sonego Betting Odds
Kyrgios has gone as far as the Quarter Final in his home tournament, and is 1/9 favourite with Ladbrokes in his First Round match.
Straight sets look likely at 10/11 with Paddy Power, with Sonego an outside shot at 5/1 with the same firm.
Given the circumstances in Australia, we can see the native really performing this tournament.
Kristyna Pliskova v Heather Watson Betting Odds
Watson goes into her First Round tie against Pliskova in good form and is priced at 10/11 to make it through with William Hill. Pliskova is the slight favourite at 5/6 with Coral and it could prove one of the ties of the round. A 2-1 Watson win looks a nice wager at 3/1, although the Ladbrokes are fancying 2-0 Pliskova at 2/1.
