It was a shock result on the women's side of the Australian Open in 2020 with American Sofia Kenin breaking through for her maiden grand slam.

It was a disappointing conclusion to the tournament for Australian Ash Barty, who was taken out by the eventual champion in the semifinals. Can she go one better and make it to the Australian Open final in 2021, or is it Serena who will once again dominate on the Australian surface?

2021 Women's Australian Open Tips 

Women's Australian Open Tips 2021 Best Bet - Ash Barty

It looked like Aussie Ash Barty would break through for that elusive home grand slam in 2020 before she was taken out in the semifinal by the eventual champion Sofia Kenin.

Up until that point Barty looked to be cruising through to the final but an outstanding match by Kenin cost the world number 1 at the penultimate hurdle.

Although she has not played many WTA matches during the 2020 season, due to Covid-19, she will be sure to be ready to bring her A-game to this tournament which is her dream to win.

We think Barty's off-day in the semis was an abberation and she has the capability to take out 2021 Australian Open final.

Women's Australian Open 2021 Next Best Bet - Simona Halep

Sitting at world number two, Simona Halep is one of the few ladies in the competition that has played as much tennis as she can, having already played 26 matches, more than most in the draw.

Of those 26 matches, she has won 23 of them, so we know she will come to Australia fit and in-form.

Although she does not have the greatest record down under, she is the type of player that will benefit with match fitness under her belt, whereas the likes of Ash Barty have not played as much tennis and may need the outing.

Women's Australian Open 2021 Value Bet - Victoria Azarenka

A previous Australian Open Champion, she bounced back to some form in the US Open this year, finishing runner-up to Naomi Osaka who beat her in three sets.

Since then, Azarenka has also made the final of the Ostrava Open where she was again a runner-up, beaten by Aryna Sabalenka in two sets.

It is quite clear that she has been playing her best tennis on hard courts, and in Australia, she will love the fast paced, hot courts with her powerful action.
