?? Australian Open, R1 Prediction
?? (3) Caroline Wozniacki vs. ?? Alison Van Uytvanck
Caroline Wozniacki has been dealt a fairly favourable draw to begin her title defense at the Australian Open. Wozniacki is seemingly quite vulnerable heading into the 2019 Australian Open, the world number 3 made a slow start to the year in Auckland and has generally been in average form since winning the Australian Open 12 months ago.
However, I don’t think Wozniacki will have many problems in this match-up. Van Uytvanck has never won a main draw match at the Australian Open and has also made a slow start to her 2019 campaign. At her best, Van Uytvanck is a big threat, but I don’t see the Belgian being near that level here. Wozniacki’s solid game is the type of game that will really frustrate Van Uytvanck. Wozniacki is too strong and too consistent.
