Join us for our WTA Australian Open Day 7 main favorite betting analysis. Find out who are the main favorite to get in action and the highest value spread betting.

Serena Williams (1) vs Margarita Gasparyan
Serena Williams played her best match in Melbourne so far, destroying the young Daria Kasatkina by 6 – 1 6 – 1. The American was close from perfection on that match, placing 80% first serve, winning 93.33% points on serve and ending with 27 winners / 8 unforced errors. Serena’s serve is her biggest weapon and this week she has been outstanding, holding 96.2% of service games.

After losing in the first round on her two previous Grand Slam main draw appearances, Margarita Gasparyan is already on the 4th round in Melbourne. The Russian’s serve and forehand are her best shots, especially the forehand down the line. Gasparyan also likes to mix things with her one-handed backhand, using often the slice to change the pace of the rallies.

Serena won the previous meeting they played at Wimbledon last year by 6 – 4 6 – 1.

It will be hard for Gasparyan to have chances on this match if Serena repeats the superb performance. The spread on this match is at -7.0 (+110) but you can go for a lower line at -6.5 (-143), both on Pinnacle. The Russian can be a dangerous opponent, but Serena is returning to her best tennis and should be able to cover her spread. We suggest to split your stake with 50% in each of those two spreads.

Agnieszka Radwanska (5) vs Anna-Lena Friedsam
As we mentioned in our Day 5 Main Spread Betting Analysis, Agnieszka Radwanska was just too solid for Monica Puig, defeating the Puerto Rican by 6 – 4 6 – 0. The first set was quite close, with Agnieszka needing to recover from a break down, however in the second set Puig just couldn’t find a way to overplay Radwanska. The Polish is playing some unbelievable tennis in recent months, winning 4 titles in her last 6 competitions.

It has been a dream week for Anna-Lena Friedsam, with the German reaching the 4th round of a Grand Slam event for the first time on her career. Friedsam is a very aggressive player with a strong serve and powerful groundstrokes, however still struggles to perform at a consistent level. Despite playing some outstanding tennis, is important to mention that Friedsam had a very good draw, facing only one top 100 player so far – Roberta Vinci. The German fought hard against the Italian, recovering from a bagel in the first set to emerge victorious by 0 – 6 6 – 4 6 – 4.

They player earlier this year at Shenzhen semifinals, with Radwanska defeating Friedsam by 6 – 2 6 – 4.

After several upsets on 2nd quarter of the draw, Radwanska knows this is a great chance for her to reach semifinals, where she might face Serena Williams. Friedsam will play with a loose mindset, going for her shots and trying to bother Agnieszka, however the Polish should be once again too solid for her opponent. The spread for this match is at -6.5 (-110) on Pinnacle and despite not being able to cover this line on their previous meeting, Radwanska should do it this time. The Polish has been just too solid, while Friedsam will struggle to keep a competitive level for two straight sets, like it happened in Agnieszka’s previous match against Puig. Radwanska’s spread tennis odds seem valuable and we suggest to add it to your tennis picks.
