Australian Open 2021: February 10th Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Rod Laver Arena (11 a.m. start) – I like the chalk on Rod Laver Arena

[8] Bianca Andreescu (CAN) vs. Hsieh Su-Wei (TPE)
[10] Serena Williams (USA) vs. Nina Stojanovic (SRB)
[3] Naomi Osaka (JPN) vs. Caroline Garcia (FRA) 

Margaret Court Arena 

[7] Aryna Sabalenka (RUS) vs. Daria Kasatkina (RUS)
[9] Petra Kvitova (CZE) vs. Sorana Cirstea (ROU) – Cirstea is a tough competitor, but Petra will win barring an error filled outing.
[2] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. Ajla Tomljanovic (AUS) (7 p.m.)

John Cain Arena (Noon start)

Venus Williams (USA) vs. [Q] Sara Errani (ITA) – Errani and Venus have won career slams in doubles, but I think Venus takes this match.
[15] Iga Swiatek (POL) vs. Camila Giorgi (ITA) – Swiatek has the tools to be in the top 5 for a long time, but generally the first major after winning a first major does not go well.

1573 Arena – More Chalk advancing

[19] Marketa Vondrousova (CZE) vs. [Q] Rebecca Marino (CAN)
[14] Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) vs. [Q] Liudmila Samsonova (RUS)

Court 3

[Q] Timea Babos (HUN) vs. Anastasia Potapova (RUS)
[27] Ons Jabeur (TUN) vs. [Q] Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (SVK)

Court 7

[32] Veronika Kudermetova (RUS) vs. Varvara Gracheva (RUS)

Court 8

Alizé Cornet (FRA) vs. [Q] Ann Li (USA) – Either could win, but the qualifier advancing is a cool story.
Bernarda Pera (USA) vs. Zarina Diyas (KAZ) – The lefty beat a former world #1 in fellow-lefty Angelique Kerber. So long as there is no post upset letdown, I like Pera to advance.

Court 17

[17] Elena Rybakina (KAZ) vs. Fiona Ferro (FRA)
