The 2010 Australian Open features the first ever meeting between these two Belgians.
Justine Henin is a heavy favorite against Yanina Wickmayer in their fourth round match at the 2010 Australian Open. Henin has been set at -500 (1/5) to win against her countrywoman on Sunday from Melbourne.
Wickmayer, with Sportingbet, has been set long at +300 (3/1).
This is the first ever meeting between the two players and a spot in the Australian Open quarterfinals is at stake.
Based on the odds involved, there is absolutely nothing wrong with picking Wickmayer to win this match as she has been rock solid on tour since the late summer/early fall.
Here are Wickmayer's accomplishments in the last several months:
US Open - semifinals
Linz - WINNER
Luxembourg - semifinals
Bali - was through the first round before the "whereabouts" rule burned her
Auckland - WINNER
Now at the Australian Open, Wickmayer has won 6 matches, 3 in qualifying plus 3 in the main draw and she is carrying a lot of momentum. Henin has not looked fantastic in the main draw of the tournament yet as her opponents have let her off of the hook in her previous two matches.
Wickmayer is poised for the upset and the price with Sportingbet is long.
