Australian Open – women’s semifinals

Wozniacki vs Li

Na Li has been in absolutely stunning form in the past weeks, but let’s lean back for a moment and gaze at the odds on hand. You have the world’s number 1 in a Grand Slam-semifinal, losing just one set on the way, and she’s now facing an opponent whom she beat on january 5th this year in straight sets. An opponent who is ranked 11 in the world. And the world number 1 is the outsider and you can get 1.46 on her just to win a set. Let’s be honest, how often do you experience that scenario?! Imagine the world number 1 in men’s tennis being the outsider in a Grand Slam-semifinal – never going to happen.

Clijsters vs Zvonareva

Clijsters beat Zvonareva soundly in the final of the US Open, 6-2 6-1, but that’s actually the only win for Clijsters in their 4 recent meetings. In 5 of their last 6 meetings Zvonareva has at least won a set, so Clijsters might come out on top here, but it still looks worth a punt that she won’t reach the final without dropping a set at all.

These 2 ladies have played each other 9 times, with a total of 22 sets and not a single one of these have been decided by a breaker.
