The second round of the 2021 Australian Open continues this Thursday as a handful of talented Aussies take to the court at Melbourne Park. Here is a look at six matches you cannot miss on the fourth day of the tournament, with top odds from Australia’s best tennis betting sites.
Australian Open Day 4 men’s betting tips
Pablo Cuevas $8 vs Alex De Minaur $1.05
Alex de Minaur might not yet be a genuine Grand Slam contender, but he looks to be on the right path. Argentina’s Pablo Cuevas has played in Melbourne eight times in 13 years, but he has never made it past the second round. De Minaur won his opening match against Tennys Sandgren by 12 games, and we suspect he will cover the line in this one as well.
Alex de Minaur -7.5 games
Alexei Popyrin $2 vs Lloyd Harris $1.72
Much to our surprise, Alexei Popyrin was good enough to beat David Goffin in the first round. Lloyd Harris took four sets to beat Denmark’s Mikael Torpegaard, a player ranked outside the top 150. We see potential in the 21-year-old Aussie and think he can make the third round of the Australian Open for the third straight year.
Alexei Popyrin to win
Stefanos Tsitsipas $1.08 vs Thanasi Kokkinakis $6.50
Stefanos Tsitsipas breezed past his opening round opponent, Gilles Simon, who has been a pro player for nearly 20 years. Unfortunately for Thanasi Kokkinakis, he doesn’t stand a chance against the world no.6, who will make his way to the third round with another quick victory.
Stefanos Tsitsipas to win 3-0
Australian Open Day 4 women’s betting tips
Coco Gauff $2.37 vs Elina Svitolina $1.53
It is youth against experience when Coco Gauff and Elina Svitolina clash on Thursday. The latter has played nearly 450 matches, while the former has not yet graced the court 40 times on the WTA Tour. We cannot split these two due to their unique strengths, but we do like the odds for both of them to win a set. Svitolina would be our pick to win, as the world no.5 has made the Australian Open quarter finals in two of the last three years.
Both players to win a set
Sofia Kenin $1.72 vs Kaia Kanepi $2
Despite her win in the first round and previous accolades at Melbourne Park, Australian Open betting sites still have Sofia Kenin at $1.72 to beat 35-year-old Kaia Kanepi. We think the reigning Australian Open champ will win this easily and prove why she is no.4 in the women’s rankings.
Sofia Kenin to win
Ash Barty $1.07 vs Daria Gavrilova $7
If you missed the world no.1’s first match of the tournament, you only missed 44 minutes of action as Ash Barty swiftly cleaned up Danka Kovinic 6-0 in both sets. Daria Gavrilova easily made it past the first round, but that is as far as she will go this year. Barty will show no mercy once again and quickly send her fellow Australian home.
Ash Barty -6.5 games
