Val's Australian Open Plays - Round 3 (day 2)

Val

We go 2-4 -4.53 units, our 2 wins were no doubters as Krejcikova won in straight sets and the Norrie/Lehecka over was never in doubt. Shapovalov lost a 5 set nail bitter, Kostyuk couldn't win a set versus Pegula, Tiafoe disappointed versus Khachanov and my worries about M. Keys can true as the mental part of the game took over as she fell apart after winning the first set.

Record 7-7 -5.73 units

Best bet

Linda Fruhvirtova +1.5 sets -111 (Start time apx 10:30pm EST)

We have two Czech's in L. Fruhvirtova and Market Vondrousova facing off in the third round tonight. The 17 year old Fruhvirtova is an up and comer and I expect her to make some noise on the tour in 2023. She's taken care of business in the first two rounds with relative ease winning both her matches in straight sets, however, tonight she will face a stiffer test in Vondrousova. Vondrousova has been living on the edge at the Aussie Open losing the first set of both her matches before coming from behind to beat A. Riske & O. Jabour. I honestly think that Fruhvirtova can win this match straight up but will go the safer route and back her at +1.5 sets.

Risk 2.22 units for 2 units
