- Marketa Vondrousova is a +115 underdog against second-ranked Ons Jabeur.
- Barbora Krejcikova has a dangerous task in front of her in the form of Anhelina Kalinina.

MELBOURNE, Australia - The Australian Open continues as the eyes of the Tennis world are trained on the Women’s singles competition, where elite talent will be facing off for the next few days.
Marketa Vondrousova vs. Ons Jabeur Odds
- Marketa Vondrousova +115
- Ons Jabeur -140
Ons Jabeur is one of the true elite of women’s tennis. The Tunisian tennis talent is currently ranked second in the world, and has been since July 2022.
She faces a tough test in the form of Marketa Vondrousova, who reached the final of the French Open in 2019.
Jabeur dropped a set in the first round of the tournament against Tamara Zidansek, which was an unexpected outcome.
Still, the online sportsbooks do give her -140 odds to defeat Vondrousova – but they clearly expect it to be something of a competitive match.
Ons Jabeur takes on Marketa Vondrousova early in the morning of Thursday, with expected start time of 5:00 a.m. EST.
Barbora Krejcikova vs. Anhelina Kalinina Odds
- Barbora Krejcikova -155
- Anhelina Kalinina +130
Barbora Krejcikova, part of the number-one-ranked doubles team, is ranked 20 in the world in singles competition.
The 2021 French Open champion was formerly ranked as high as #2 in the world, and is focused almost exclusively on her health.

“After what I experienced last year with everything, this year definitely the biggest goal is to stay healthy,” Krejcikova said.
Krejcikova has lost only nine games in the first two rounds of the tournament, and a victory over Kalinina would see her make her first second-week appearance in almost a year.
Kalinina is fresh off of a two-set victory over Petra Kvitova, so she’s no stranger to overcoming underdog odds. Her talent seems to lie in her fitness – she can take anyone to the brink with her speed and stamina.
Her main flaw seems to be the lack of a dominating service game – even though she dispatched Kvitova in straight sets, she still had fewer aces than her opponent.
This match should be a test of Krejcikova’s newfound fitness and health – the online tennis betting sportsbooks have it in her favor, but they also had it in favor of Kvitova when she ran up against Kalinina.
