Women’s Australian Open Final Betting Tips

Sofia Kenin vs Garbine Muguruza

Saturday, 7:30pm AEDT

Like usual, the women’s draw at the Australian Open has dished out upset after upset with all the top seeds dropping like flies. Australia’s Ash Barty looked a good thing to lift her maiden AO title with so many other top 10 women struggling, however, she ran into the wall that is Sofia Kenin who will partake in the final against former world number 1 Garbine Muguruza.

Sofia Kenin

Easily the biggest surprise at this year’s AO is Sofia Kenin. The 21-year-old American is coming off a fantastic 2019 campaign that saw her rise to #15 in the world, however, prior to her run to the final this fortnight, Kenin had never ventured beyond the fourth round in a Grand Slam. She did have great success at other tournaments in 2019, picking up three titles in a breakout year for the young star.

Kenin has had a fairly soft run to the final if we’re being truly honest. She’s only had to play two seeded players en route, although she did face a world #1 in Ash Barty in the semi-finals. Kenin has won five of her six matches in straight sets with her only three set win coming against 15-year-old Cori Gauff.

Garbine Muguruza

Also a little bit of a surprise this fortnight has been the run to the final by Garbine Muguruza. The 26-year-old Spanish star is no stranger to deep Grand Slam runs; however, she’s coming off her worst year in recent memory as she failed to advance beyond the fourth round in a Slam for the first time since 2013. Muguruza is a former world number 1 and has been a champion of both the French Open (2016) and Wimbledon (2017).

Muguruza has had to go through quite a few highly touted players to reach her fourth Grand Slam final. She came into the AO with a virus and nearly bowed out in the first round; however, she’s since gone from strength to strength and has won her last four matches in straight sets. Her biggest scalp was in the semi-finals where she defeated Simona Halep in a fantastic serving performance.

Prediction

Both women come into this in fantastic touch and haven’t had to spend too much time on court. Kenin has proven that she’s got the game to match it with the big guns on the big stage; however, she’s never been to a Grand Slam final, so nerves might get the better of her at the start. On the other hand, Muguruza is quite experienced in Grand Slams and is a proven winner when the pressure is on. She’s the bigger hitter of the two and much of this game will be determined by her side of the net, so we’re more than happy to back her in. We expect Muguruza to be winning this in straight sets, however, the value of the games handicap appeals just a little bit more.
