Its only a matter of weeks now until the start of the 2014 WTA tennis season and not long after the first grand slam will already be upon us! The Australian Open being so early in the season can often cause some surprise results. Remember Sloane Stephens taking out Serena Williams this year?
Serena at 4/5 Bet365 looks a very short price with little value. Even defending champion Azarenka at 10/3 Bet365 doesn’t offer much for the punter. Li Na at 12/1 Bet365 looks a huge price, she loves the courts in Melbourne and finished off 2013 in good form and a new personal best ranking. The Chinese star could well cause an upset and take the title! I expect her price to shorten in the coming weeks!
Aga Radwanska offers big value at 25/1 Bet365 but can she cope with her counterparts power?
Another player who had a very solid 2013 and returned to the WTA top 10 was Jelena Jankovic. The Serbian is a massive 100/1 and definitely worth a couple of quid, while don’t forget the in form Simona Halep! 33/1 Bet365
My advice is low stakes at huge prices, value is the key!
I will be previewing the Australian Open mens and womens tournaments in full in January.
