Women’s Australian Open 2022 Odds
- Ashleigh Barty -185
- Iga Swiatek +350
- Madison Keys +600
- Danielle Collins +800
As the No. 1 player in the world, she’s a tough player to bet against.
Can She Win In Straight Sets?
Even those who are confident in Barty’s ability to win the Australian Open may be a bit skeptical on whether or not she can continue to beat the world’s best players without losing a single set.
However, her numbers have been extremely impressive.
Barty has won an impressive 93% of her service games and 32.5% of her return games in 2022. Plus, assuming Swiatek advances to the finals, Barty shouldn’t feel too threatened. She’s faced Swiatek twice before, beating her in straight sets both times, including once in Australia already.
Truthfully, regardless of how things shake out the +175 odds may be a good bet to make for those betting on tennis. She’s faced Keys just once on the hard court and beat her in straight sets 6-4, 6-1 and in the event Danielle Collins upsets Swiatek, they have some experience as well. Barty is 3-1 all-time against Collins, but did lose the most recent meeting.
