The Australian Open takes place in Melbourne, and in this analysis I will detail the match in the first round between Petra Kvitova and Katerina Siniakova, and I will conclude with the related bet.
Melbourne is a city of 5 million inhabitants, being the capital of Victoria.
This tournament is big, grand slam, with a prize pool of $ 71 million.
The host is the Melbourne Park complex, which has outdoor hardcovered grounds.
The contest table includes Serena Williams, Ashleigh Barty, Naomi Osaka or Simona Halep.
▪️Petra Kvitova is a 29-year-old Czech, ranked 8th in the WTA.
▪️And Kvitova is a great champion, being a double Wimbledon winner and a finalist last year right here in Melbourne.
▪️In addition Petra has reached the 2nd place in the world. Unfortunately, his career also had a profoundly negative, even tragic, moment when he was stabbed in his own house and was about to retire.
▪️Fortunately, all is well and Kvitova can hope for new titles.
▪️In 2019 he has the title at Sydney, the final at the Australian Open, the final at Dubai, the quarter-finals at Miami, the title at Stuttgart, the quarter-finals at Madrid, the semifinals at Wuhan and the quarter-finals at Beijing.
▪️And in 2019 he has semifinals in Brisbane.
▪️A pretty good form for Petra, in Brisbane being defeated by Keys (11th WTA) but after a balanced game.
▪️Katerina Siniakova is a 23-year-old Czech, who ranks 57th in the WTA.
▪️And Siniakova is talented but rather inconsistent. However, these oscillations make it very dangerous for opponents, as it can win against many top players.
▪️In 2019 he has quarterfinals in Prague, semifinals at Nurnberg and semifinals at Bronx.
▪️But the year 2020 started it quite weak.
▪️Siniakova played a single tournament in Shenzhen, where she was clearly defeated in the first round by Alexandrova (26th WTA).
▪️However, Shenzhen still won the title in the double test.

✔️The last one took place last year in Dubai when Petra won 6-7 6-4 6-4.
▫️A double player, Katerina managed to win two Grand Slam editions. Instead, simple is something else entirely.
▫️Proof that he is in 57th place in the world hierarchy and shows no signs of recovery.
▫️2020 started off shy for her, with a two-set defeat to Shenzhen.
▫️Also, Katerina finished the season in her knees and the previous season, when she also played hard.
▫️There she was eliminated in two sets from Beijing, Linz and Moscow. At the same time, she was unable to get through the second round at the Australian Open.
▫️The best performances came in 2015 and 2018, when he passed the inaugural tour.
▫️The Czech athlete missed the opportunity to win the first trophy of the year.
▫️She was eliminated in the semifinals after a duel with American Madison Keys.
▫️It was a match ended with 6-3, 2-6, 3-6, which lasted just over two hours of play.
▫️The current 8 WTA place is the favorite of the bookmakers in this match.
▫️Petra is a finalist for the last edition of the Australian Open. She then played with the trophy on the table, but ended up losing by Naomi Osaka, after a very nice match.
▫️7-6 (2), 5-7, 6-4, this was the way in which the Japanese defeated the 29-year-old Czech athlete.
▫️Twice the two sportsmen have met until now. Each time, Kvitova was the sportswoman who won.
▫️She is also now favorite to do this, considering the beginning of the strong year she was a part of.
▫️Moreover, I think that Petra will take advantage of the more timid evolution of his countrymen and will prevail in two sets.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Petra Kvitova vs Katerina Siniakova
Petra Kvitova is one of the favorites in the title here, last year reaching the final.
This season he played quite well and his service worked. With Madison Keys sent only 2 aces but the rest has 8 with Brady, 7 with Samsonova or 5 with Pavlyuchenkova.
Katerina Siniakova did not look good in the only match played this year but she can pose problems, last year in the match directly taking Petra.
His service is quite good, with Alexandrova sending 7 aces.
So I think we will see over 6.5 aces in the match, my prediction going on this idea at a share offered by Efortuna.
