2012 Australian Open Tennis Womens Singles Futures Odds

Mens Singles Futures Odds for 2012 Australian Open Tennis

Update: Congratulations to Victoria Azarenka for winning the 2012 Australian Open womens singles title. She beat Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-0 for her first Grand Slam title.

Update: The 2012 Australian Open womens draw is down to Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova. An up and comer who continues to improve, Azarenka comes in as a fairly big favourite. She’s currently at 1.74 (-135) at BetOnline (all customers accepted). Although I have a slight edge to Azarenka myself (and she way my favourite pick heading into the tournament), I’m seeing value on the young veteran Sharapova. If you live outside the US, you can get her at 2.20 at Bet365 right now. If you live in the US, her best odds are 2.10 (+110) at Bovada. With her mental strength and experience, Sharapova has a real shot to win.

Below are the latest futures odds for the 2012 Australian Open tennis womens singles title. Prior to her loss to Daniela Hantuchova in Brisbane, Serena Williams was the favourite for the Aussie Open title. She has now dropped behind Petra Kvitova who lost to Na Li in the semifinals in Sydney. However, when Williams is playing a major, she’s always considered a threat.

Victoria Azarenka comes in behind Williams after winning in Sydney as the #3 seed. All she did was beat three top-10 seeded players (Bartoli, Radwanska, Li) and #14 (Jankovic) on her way to the title. Azarenka showed heart in both her semifinal and finals matches, losing the first set against Radwanska, and the second set against Li. At 7.00 (+600), Azarenka is showing some value.

During the 2012 Aussie Open we’ll provide updates on matches, injuries, and the latest tennis odds & betting tips.

Which Lady Will Win the 2012 Australian Open Singles Title?

Petra Kvitova is the favourite heading into the tournament, and she has a real chance to take down this title. She won the 2011 WTA Championships (hard court) back in late October, beating a slew of the best ladies in the world. She’s 21 years old, getting better every year, and already ranked #2 in the world. She seems to be improving on the hard court, and she claimed to have a new commitment to improving her fitness late last year. If she comes in fitter this year, she’s going to give Serena a run for her money.

What I don’t like about Kvitova is that she heads into the 2012 Australian Open at 3.50 odds. The womens side is too open, and I don’t think we’re getting enough value on her.

As mentioned above, Serena Williams has to be considered one of the favourites in any major. She’s had time off to get healthy, and recently played a tune-up tournament in Brisbane. She didn’t play great in Brisbane, but it wasn’t a major, and she never worries about tune-up results. Serena has the strongest mental game, and she’ll be looking for blood. At 5.00 odds, this might be a good bet.

Considering the odds, I like Victoria Azarenka at 7.00. I know what you’re thinking…she can’t beat Kvitova or Williams. Although she’s lost to Kvitova the last 4 times they’ve played, and has a 1-6 record against Williams, Azarenka has played each of them much closer in recent matchups. With her recent win in Sydney, beating three top-10 seeded players, her confidence will be high. She’s come very close to beating Williams and Kvitova recently and I think she’s hungry to beat anyone who comes her way.

After the Brisbane International is complete, we’ll get more in-depth with our betting tips for the 2012 Australian Open womens title. Right now, Serena Williams and Petra Kvitova are the ones we’re picking, but this tune-up in Brisbane could reveal a lot. Right now, I like Kvitova in the 4.50 – 5.00 odds range that we can get. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her as low as 3.25 – 4.00 before the 2012 Aussie Open begins. If you’re looking for early betting value, this is my best recommendation right now.
