SERENA WILLIAMS will take some stopping in Melbourne and on Friday night the latest player with the thankless task of trying to halt her is Elina Svitolina.
The Ukrainian is 8-1 with bet365 for a shock third-win win against the top seed and five-time champ. Serena has yet to drop a set at this year’s Australian Open and is 3-10 at Paddy Power to continue that trend with a 2-0 success.
Sister Venus is also in action tonight and Skybet rate her 4-11 to see off world No.33 Camila Giorgi of Argentina, who is 5-2 with Boylesports.
In the men’s draw there are plenty of big names on court throughout Friday night and early Saturday morning, including defending champ Stan Wawrinka, world No.1 Novak Djokovic and title contenders Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic.
In golf’s Qatar Masters it’s day three with Ace Venturer’s tip of Sergio Garcia nicely poised just three off the lead. And another of Ace’s picks, Matt Kuchar, is right in touch at the top of the Humana Challenge which hits the halfway stage today.
The cricket ODI between Australia and England is under way and there’s also the likes of European Cup rugby while the NBA betting fans are spoiled for choice with an 11-match card.
Good luck with your bets and let’s hear your sporting tips and thoughts.
