Tennis tips and betting predictions. Serena Williams v Maria Sharapova at the Australian Open 2015
All of a sudden, Serena Williams has made it to the Aussie Open final. All of a sudden, Maria Sharapova has made it the AO final too. But the biggest astonishment is that they both have made it to the last stage of the year-starting Grand Slam event. We are not kidding. There are so many girls who make a dent in women’s tour these days that it really comes as a surprise that the World No.1 will play World No. 2. The last year was far from being career best for them both when only two grand slam finals have witnessed either Maria or Serena. Sharapova played in Roland Garros final while Serena won the US Open championship. So this final clash was widely exactable, but still not trivial.
As for their performance here, in Melbourne, the both played on their level, with no unacceptable falls and with no extraordinary shine. The two are able to add levels to their game. We shouldn’t neglect the fact that the both players got a lucky draw here as many favorites got stumbled upon one another and were exhausted when facing the World No.1 or No.2 and, of course, tumbled out. The same can be said about the quarterfinal and semifinal clashes. Williams came through Madison Keys and Dominika Cibulkova. Sharapova was even luckier: one of her main stumbling blocks, Eugenie Bouchard and Caroline Wozniacki were defeated in early rounds. Halep also was blown out.
Of course, all of the said above makes no prejudice to girls’ tennis. As for their rivalry, out of their 19 matches, Serena Williams has 15-match winning streak over Sharapova. Maria can’t do anything to push Serena since 2004. And she would hardly be able to do it now, in the Australian Open final. For the two weeks of the current championship Serena gave no chances to here victims, Muguruza being no exception. In all these matchups Serena was in control showing who is World No.1. Serena is a very consistent player. Here serve and groundstrokes are very powerful. She also has more defense tools in her arsenal. At times she has troubles when playing in run, but it’s just nuances Serena knows how to deal with.
As for Sharapova tennis, she is less consistent. Maria makes good attacking decisions but is easily outplayed by actively defending players like Radwanska or Wozniacki. Sharapova fights like heck trying to be in control but as soon as there is another attacking player over the net, Maria gets into big troubles. Our Dotennis team thinks that it is due to her poor attacking arsenal that Maria lost so many consecutive matches to the American star. Williams is a better athlete and a better attacking player. And nothing Sharapova produces will be of concern.
To sum it up, we think that Serena heads into the final as the big favorite, winning 16 of 18 matches the both have played and the 19th Grand Slam title awaits her. At the end of the day, even one more rest day favors the American star. But don’t take handicap lines as Maria is quite capable of winning the first set with one or more breaks. But this is the most she can do.
As always, we remind you that it’s up to you to make a final decision. Our team doesn’t take any responsibility for the probable outcome. If you want to be more confident – subscribe to our paid tips. Best of luck!
