Women’s AO Final Odds: Naomi Osaka vs. Petra Kvitová
Whatever lady wins the championship, she will have amassed enough points to become the new world number one in the WTA Rankings.
This is Kvitová’s best finish at the Women’s Australian open since reaching the semi-finals in 2012. It’s her first major finals appearance since Wimbledon in 2014. Kvitová is the first woman from the Czech Republic to reach the AO singles finals since 1991.
Naomi Osaka won the US Open last year, but had never gotten beyond the Round of 16 in the Australian Open until this year. She is the first Japanese woman to reach the AO Final in the Open Era.
Will Kvitová win her second title in 2019?
Petra’s 2019 has been quite uneventful. She breezed through the Sydney International, losing just one set in five matches. That one lost set happened in the finals, which she won against Ashleigh Barty.
Prior to the competition of Women’s Australian open, Kvitová’s average odds were as high as +1750 on January 10th.
Kvitová has won 14 of her past 14 sets in the previous two events and is 22/23 overall.
Her energy carried over to the AO, where she won all six of her matches in straight sets. That means she’s won all 14 of her sets in the previous two events and is at 22/23 overall. She also has an 11-match winning run going at the Women’s Australian open.
Kvitová got off to a rough start in the semifinals against unranked Danielle Collins on Wednesday night. The roof was ultimately closed at 4-4, with Kvitová going on to win the opening set in a tie-break, despite being behind 2-3 and playing in great heat.
But the drama stopped there, as the 28-year-old Czech dominated the American in the second set, winning 7-6(2), 6-0 in one hour and 34 minutes. Kvitová had a dominant 30-9 advantage in winners throughout the set.
