We are up to day 9 of the Australian Open and after a successful run so far including all 3 Australian Open tips winning last time followers of our tips should have plenty of money in the bank for today's tennis. It is hopefully going to be a day of upsets with all 3 of our best tips starting as big outsiders in the market. All three players come in with great form though and should perform better than the odds suggest.
C Suarez Navarro +5.5 @ $1.89
CSN has a reasonable head to head record over the more talented Wozniacki, trailing just 2-4 from their six matches. More importantly her form vs Wozniacki has been very strong recently with the pair taking one match each from their last two tight matches and winning in their only ,match during 2017.
Wozniacki should probably be too good at the end, but based on their most recent performances the plus handicap of Suarez Navarro looks the best bet.
M Cilic +5.5 @ $1.95
Even though Nadal has a strong 5-1 record over Cilic, every match they have played on hard courts has been a tightly contested match. They played twice last year with Nadal winning both matches but in their only hard court match it was Nadal winning 7-6, 7-5 in a match that really could have gone either way and it was only a few key points here and there that decided it.
Nadal struggled at times with the big serve of Schwartzman last match and with Cilic holding a similar weapon as well as bigger ground strokes he should be able to put more pressure on Nadal or at least go deeper into sets making the plus games handicap a better bet.
E Mertens +4.5 @ $2
Mertens is one of the form players of the WTA at the moment, after winning the title in Hobart she hasn't dropped a set on her Australian Open journey. With 10 straight wins in a row and her only loss this year coming in a super close 6-7, 6-7 loss to Kerber in the Hopman Cup it is hard to bet against her at this price.
Svitolina has looked good herself but she has had a very soft draw so far and odds of $1.26 seems rather short facing her toughest opponent yet.
