Two of the biggest names in tennis will be back on the court at the Australian Open on Sunday, with Iga Swiatek and Stefanos Tsitipas both set to play at the Rod Laver Arena. The duo are part of our acca for Sunday’s action, which offers a price of 15/1.
Australian Open Sunday Tips
- Iga Swiatek to beat Elena Rybakina @ 2/9
- Coco Gauff to beat Jelena Ostapenko 2-1 @ 3/1
- Hubert Hurkacz to beat Sebastian Korda @ 11/8
- Stefanos Tsitsipas to beat Jannik Sinner @ 4/9
Iga Swiatek to beat Elena Rybakina @ 2/9
Tournament favourite Swiatek has breezed her way into the fourth round so far in Melbourne, and she has yet to drop a set in any of her matches against Jule Niemeir, Camila Osorio and Cristina Busca.
Rybakina’s path to the fourth round could have been smoother, but she has only played one set more than her opponent, beating Elisabetta Cocciaretto, Kaja Juvan, and Danielle Collins.
While Rybakina is considered an outsider for Sunday’s contest, like Swiatek, she is already a Grand Slam winner. Rybakina is the reigning women’s Wimbledon champion, but her progression to the fourth round is her best achievement so far at the Australian Open.
Swiatek reached the final four 12 months ago, and her superior experience at the highest level should be enough for her to land the spoils in Melbourne.
Coco Gauff to beat Jelena Ostapenko 2-1 @ 3/1
Either Gauff or Ostapenko will make history on Sunday as they prepare to reach the quarter-finals of the Australian Open for the first time.
Gauff has already battled past Katerina Siniakova, Emma Raducanu and Bernarda Pera, and the 18-year-old American has advanced without dropping a set.
However, Ostapenko will provide her toughest test yet, particularly after gaining more confidence by beating Kateryna Baindl 6-3 6-0 in the third round. She lost serve in the very first game of the match, but her ruthless response will have given her plenty of optimism ahead of her clash with Gauff.
Ostapenko has often struggled with consistency, but if she can reproduce the same quality she showed against Baindl, she can pinch a set off Gauff before losing 2-1.
Hubert Hurkacz to beat Sebastian Korda @ 11/8
Two big hitters will take to the court on Sunday, with Hurkacz looking to avoid joining the rest of the top-ten seeds that have crashed out in Melbourne.
Once Rafael Nadal was eliminated earlier this week, Hurkacz was mentioned as one of the favourites, but he faces a massive test when he takes on Korda.
Korda stunned Daniil Medvedev earlier this week to advance to the fourth round, and he will not be short of confidence due to his recent performances.
Both players have what it takes to win, but Hurkacz’s ability on his first serve may be enough to help him reach the last eight at a tasty price.
Stefanos Tsitsipas to beat Jannik Sinner @ 4/9
Greek ace Stefanos Tsitsipas will continue his quest to reach a fourth semi-final in Australia when he faces Italian Sinner on Sunday morning.
Sinner has never advanced past the quarter-finals of any Grand Slam, so Tsitsipas’ experience is likely to come into play this weekend.
The world number four leads Sinner 4-1 in their head-to-head clashes, including their most recent meeting at the Italian Open in 2022.
While Sinner’s future looks bright, Tsitsipas is in better form, and he should be able to wrap up the victory.
