Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

I'm a Nadia fan, but I wouldn't bet her to win the title at 12-1. I mean, Kim almost won it in 2004, and she's 10-1.
I can't wait for the tournament, though.
It's the only major until late May.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

I think Nadia's odds are fair. If she could put 3 or 4 matches together at her playing her best, she could take home the hardware.

Nice to see Jelena Jankovic on the radar. I think she's becoming a favorite of mine!

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

Oh wow, I would definitely bet a small amount on MH with those odds...I mean I just don't see Vaidisova or Venus having a 'better' shot @ winning based on current events...

I hope so, but Nadia's fans deserve better odds.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

Martina's odds are good. Maybe it'll be worth 20 quid.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

hingis has lower odds than vaidisova and venus. elena has lower odds than the serb girls and the same odds as myskina.

another lovely job by the oddsmakers.

The bookies make a very good living doing this. I think these odds are reasonable. Hingis will almost certainly get further in the tournament than Vaidisova or Venus but I'd give Vaidisova or Venus more of a chance of winning the whole thing. It's only a matter of time before Vaidisova breaks through and so the bookies don't want to offer too good odds on her, in case they lose it all. Venus has shown the ability to come from nowhere to win a major, so again the bookies don't want to risk too much on her. Hingis hasn't shown that she could beat 3 top players in a row for a long long time now.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

Not to mention Elena hasn't beaten two top 10 players in a row since 2004. So I think those odds for her are good. Jankovic is more likely to beat some top tenners in a row than Elena, now. I mean, Jankovic beat three at the US Open and pushed several of them to three after that, it's not like she's lacking the capability to win a Slam.

seriously? the australian is elena's worst slam, and she STILL has a much better record than jelena there. elena has proven herself capable of going deep into slams, with 2 finals, 2 semis and 2 quarters. jelena has a semi. and elena is ranked 4 places higher than jelena.

ps- elena beat mauresmo (4th) and pierce (6th) in the 2005 fed cup final.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

Why shouldn't Nicole's odd's be good?

Her game suits the rebound ace quite well.

If she has everything going, she can go far.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

Fed Cup is separate. No one gets ranking points by beating anyone on Fed Cup. But yes, that aside, one week of the past two years she managed to beat two 10 players in a row.

Jankovic is blossoming. We'll see if she continues that next year.

Re: ODDS to win Ausy Open

Seems Hingis should have better odds than that!

SERENA WILLIAMS
