Australian Open 🇦🇺 R1 Prediction
(14) 🇱🇻 Anastasija Sevastova vs 🇺🇸 Varvara Lepchenko
Sevastova should have the clear edge here. Sevastova showed good form in the first week of the season in Brisbane, claiming some comprehensive wins over solid opponents. Conversely, Lepchenko’s results in the first two weeks were unspectacular, as they have been for the majority of the last few seasons for the American. I suspect Sevastova will be too solid and have too much class for the Lepchenko. The quick hard courts in Melbourne should suit Sevastova very nicely. Expect Sevastova to win and set about another meeting with Sharapova in the next round.
