Venus Williams (13) vs. Serena Williams (2)

After a seven-year absence, the 2003 Australian Open runner-up – Venus Williams – returns to a Grand Slam final. At the age of 36, Venus became the oldest Australian Open women’s finalist in the Open Era. Williams featured a great comeback in the previous round against Coco Vandeweghe after losing the opening set. When looking to Venus’ numbers on that contest, the highlight clearly goes to her performance on pressure points with Williams saving 92.31% of the 13 break points she faced throughout the match.

Serena Williams is now just one win away from claiming her 23rd Grand Slam trophy. Despite some concerns regarding Serena’s motivation after a disappointing loss in Auckland, the world no.2 reaches this stage of the competition without dropping a single set. Even though Williams is famous for her outstanding serve, the American has been very impressive on return to serve. Besides winning 48.10% of her opponents’ service games, she’s also generating an average of 0.91 break points per game.

These two players know everything about each other, which makes it hard for any of them to perform at their best. This will be the 28th career meeting between them with Serena leading on the h2h by 16 – 11.

Despite Serena’s remarkable performances in the previous rounds, it won’t be easy for her to maintain such a high level on this final. Even though we believe that Venus can take a set of this match, the best approach is to go with the Over. Taking now a quick look at their previous encounter, 70.37% of them ended with more than 20.5 games. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the Over betting odds by adding this line to your betting picks

 

Free Tennis Pick: Over 20.5 (-105)
