Australian Open Tips & Previews, Wednesday 26th January

Young guns are in action across the Australian Open Quarterfinals as the BetDeluxe team finds all the best bets ahead of Day 10 at Melbourne Park.

Day 10 at the Australian Open strikes and Melbourne Park will be in for a treat as a heap of star young prospects take the court on the men’s side of the draw. 

The BetDeluxe tennis experts have found all the best bets. 

Jannik Sinner vs. Stefanos Tsitsipas

Scheduled for 3:00pm

What a sensational contest we are in for when up-and-coming Italian star Jannik Sinner takes on Greek hero Stefanos Tsitsipas at Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday evening. 

Sinner proved far too good for Australian hope Alex De Minaur in the fourth round after he swept aside the 32nd seed with a straight sets victory to progress further than he ever has at the Australian Open. 

Tsitsipas, meanwhile, finished with a wet sail in his come-from-behind five-set triumph over American Taylor Fritz. 

This is going to be a game where both players trade blow for blow at the baseline, but it is Sinner who possesses the power to pick apart Tsitsipas who will likely be jaded from that long match against Fritz. 

Sinner’s meteoric rise through the rankings and through this tournament has showed not a sign of slowing down. 

Expect the 20-year-old Italian to find his way to a maiden grand-slam semi-final.  

Suggested Bet: Jannik Sinner 3-0 at $3.50

felix auger-aliassime vs. daniil medvedev

scheduled for 7:30pm

The outright Australian Open favourite in Daniil Medvedev fronts up to take another step towards a second grand-slam title when he faces Canadian jet Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Medvedev had to battle hard to book his place in the quarterfinal after a gruelling four-set encounter against American Maxime Cressy, while Auger-Aliassime showed the tennis world why he is a live chance at winning this event by rolling Croatian veteran Marin Cilic. 

From a head to head perspective in this contest, the advantage clearly lies with Medvedev who has swept aside his Canadian counterpart on all three occasions they have met. 

The 25-year-old world number two steam rolled his way through Auger-Aliassime in the semi final of the ATP Cup lead-up to the Australian Open. 

Auger-Aliassime has only managed to pinch one set off Medvedev in his career. 

Backing in the Australian Open favourite to breeze his way through to another grand-slam semifinal. 

Suggested Bet: Daniil Medvedev 3-0 at $1.85

Danielle Collins vs. Alize Cornet

scheduled for 11:00am

The most surprising Quarterfinal clash may be the one involving Danielle Collins and Alize Cornet and both players have to be aware of the size of the opportunity in front of them.

In a long career, Cornet has already broken new ground by reaching the Quarterfinal of a Grand Slam for the first time, while Collins is a former Australian Open Semi Finalist and has also reached the Quarter Final at the French Open previously.

Collins is coming off a battle with endometriosis, which she seems to have put to one side in her path through to this battle with Cornet. 

In terms of names and talent, Collins is probably does not reach the heights of the opponents Cornet has faced in this tournament prior to this match. 

Cornet had to overcome Spanish grand-slam winner Garbine Muguruza as well as the highly-fancied Simona Halep. 

The big thing in favour for Collins, however, is her ability to find herself in break-point opportunities on her opponents serve. 

She seems, on the surface, to be playing the steadier tennis of the two and she will definitely have the edge in the serving department. 

Suggested Bet: Danielle Collins 2-0 at $1.85

iga swiatek vs. kaia kanepi

scheduled for 1:05pm

It is the young versus the old when 20-year-old Iga Swiatek comes up against 36-year-old tour veteran Kaia Kanepi in the Australian Open Quarterfinals.

Kanepi shocked Margaret Court Arena with a pulsating third-set tiebreak win over number two seed Aryna Sabalenka, but it was much to the chagrin of the BetDeluxe punters who landed the $3.33 about Kanepi. 

Swiatek was also a punters favourite for us in the fourth round after landing the 2-1 set betting tip. 

Now comes the difficult task of tipping against one of the two in this clash. 

Kanepi has some real power and strength behind her baseline strokes, which might prove a bit of a headache for Swiatek. 

But the Polish youngster is equally as good, if not better on the baseline, having smashed home 52 winners in her victory over Sorana Cirstea. 

Swiatek has only dropped one set in the tournament thus far, which was against Cirstea in the fourth round, but it was the way she responded that had us enamoured. 

This is classiest opponent Kanepi will have faced to date at the Open and we think her run will come to an end at the hands of Swiatek.

Suggested Bet: I. Swiatek 2-0 at $1.57
