Jankovic is queen of the weak section of the draw for women's singles.
The bottom quarter of the women's singles, where Dinara Safina is the top seed, has to be considered to be completely wide open.
Maria Sharapova was in that section of the draw but her defeat at the hands of Kirilenko really thins out the threats there.
Somebody from that weak section will end up in the semifinals however and that means that she, whoever "she" is, will have a fantastic opportunity to win a Slam.
Jelena Jankovic is the player in that section of the draw that has the best chance of winning the 2010 Australian Open and the good news for tennis punters is that she has a price with Paddy Power that might pay off big time with just a tiny sprinkle. Our recommendation is to bet Jankovic cautiously at +3300 (33/1) with Paddy Power. Jankovic is capable of taking down a Slam and her open draw down-under represents a fantastic opportunity for her.
Here are the odds on the other players in that section of the draw and note that they all have great odds:
Dinara Safina, +2000 (20/1), Stan James
Marion Bartoli, +12500 (125/1), Paddy Power
Maria Kirilenko, +15000 (150/1), Paddy Power
Alona Bondarenko, +15000 (150/1), Blue Square
Kateryna Bondarenko, +30000 (300/1), Blue Square
