  1. The women’s fourth round tennis betting (all odds listed for outright tournament winner, not match betting) is really looking like the most attractive prospect of Day Seven at the Australian Open  as well look ahead. There are some great matches coming up, and with the Women’s draw still wide open for anyone to win, it continues to intrigue and produce some fantastic matches. Topping the bill is world number one Caroline Wozniacki (11/2 at BetFair), who squares off against Latvia’s Anastasija Sevastova (ranked 46th). The two players have never met before, but Wozniacki has not shown any sign of her progress slowing down. She is moving well and being naturally aggressive, and its hard to see where she gets some of her power from to be honest. Great talent, and great wit and she turned on the media at a press conference, answering questions before she’d been asked, and challenging the press to come up with more interesting challenges. This was all in response to criticism of her replies to questions being boring. Russian queen Maria Sharapova (16/1 at Boylesports) is in the fourth round, and she takes on Andrea Petkovic, and Sharapova has a great chance to move ahead here. She was challenged hard in the third round, losing her first set, but showed a lot of grit to battle back for the win. She is still looking like she is improving, but not quite enough to win the Grand Slam one would think. This really could have been Britain’s Anne Keothavong playing Sharapova in the fourth round, if only the Brit hadn’t blown things in the final set against Petkovic. Somehow German Petkovic got away by the skin of her teeth, and got a free pass through to the fourth round following that, as her third round opponent Venus Williams pulled out because of injury. Petkovic, ranked 33, can challenge on her day, but Sharapova is the better player of the two on paper. Sharapova beat Petkovic easily last year in Cincinnati, their only previous meeting.

    Svetlana Kuznetsova (14/1 at BetFred), who caused a shock in knocking out Justine Henin, squares off against last year’s French Open winner Francesca Schiavone. Kuznetsova was not at the races at all last year, but actually looked in good nick against Henin. The Russian holds an 8-4 head to head advantage of Schiavone. Should be tight, and a tough one to call. Schiavone has probably got the slight edge, it depends which Kuznetsova turns up. Our girl and top tip Victoria Azaraneka (14/1 at Paddy Power) meets Na Li, in probably the best looking match of the day’s women’s action. The Belarusian has been in very good form so far through the tournament, and really has the potential to go and win this one. She will face her toughest test in Na Li, who is just rolling confidently along doing what she does best. The Chinese star reached the semi finals here last season, and won’t be a pushover. Azarenka has incredible reach and power in her shots and if she is high on confidence, then she will take this one. Na Li will need to get after Azarenka early in the match to try and throw her off her game, and Na Li holds a 2-1 head to head advantage over Azarenka, but Azarenka won when they met in Montreal last  year. This is 9th (Azarenka) v 11th (Na) match, and should be fiercely contested. Would lean towards the power of Azarenka pulling this one off. You can tell by her body language that she is fired up.

    As for the men’s draw, Roger Federer (9/5 at SportingBet) will look to set the pace again, as he takes on Tommy Robredo. Federer, after being pushed to five sets in the second round, cruised back into top form in the third round to set up this clash. The Fed Express should win this one and carry on his charge towards the title. Federer still makes a worthy punt for your money, as you get the feeling that if anyone is going to stop the Rafa Slam from happening, it has to be him. It would be just so fitting. Novak Djokovic (8/1 at Boylesports), the only other previous Australian Open winner in the tournament besides Federer and Nadal is still rolling along in his challenge. He is one of the most consistent players on the ATP and you could pretty much pick him up from the start and drop him into the quarter final stage. He is incredibly hard working a diligent, this is a big year for him and really would be great to see him push Nadal and Federer. Other matches on the go will be Stanislas Wawrinka v Andy Roddick. Roddick had to survive a scare in his third round match, and needed to battle hard to book his place in the fourth round. Good enough to progress here. Tomas Berdych, who can be really exciting on his day, squares off against Fernando Verdasco, who is just as thrilling. Verdasco is always good for entertainment value, and has already shown that this year, when he left it late to get through one of his early matches. A winner here, really tough call, would go with Berdych on the day.

    Don’t forget that online bookmaker Bet365 are showing live streams of the action from Down Under. Just head to Bet365, who are highly recommended, and open an account with them. When you do, you can receive a £100 free bet to enjoy, and gain access to those all important live tennis streams from the Australian Open, along with their new and improved live betting console.
