The famous American tennis player Chris Evert named the top favorites of the Australian Open.
“It seems to me that Serena has lost weight, which means that she is gaining form. Probably her rivals are terrified. Indeed, last year she was ready for 60-70%, but she still played in the two finals of the Helmets, but now she looks better and moves faster. Judging by her game at the Hopman Cup, she is definitely one of the favorites. The courts in Melbourne are faster, which only benefits her. For her, it is now important to relax and avoid injuries, then she will be able to show her maximum. It’s no secret that Serena is extremely dangerous when it comes to the peak of the form. And her motivation does not depend on marital status. Perhaps now she will want to win even more to confirm the status of a successful mother. In addition, now it will be easier for her to distract from tennis, because she has a husband and a child. However, it is difficult to confine one favorite.
I would never have thought that Naomi Osaka would win the trophy on the US Open, and Angelique Kerber on Wimbledon. Of course, Serena has always been among the favorites. She has good chances. Osaka and Kerber, too, look good. Perhaps, I will stop at this top three.
I also like Aryna Sabalenka. You will need to look at her. It seems to me that invisible things, such as the thirst for victory, luck, fatigue, will also affect the outcome, ”Evert ESPN quotes.
