Karolina Pliskova is one of the main front runners to lift the title at the Australian Open 2021.

She gets a tricky second-round match to deal with though as she faces up to Danielle Collins.

American Collins is a gutsy player and she won the one previous meeting between the two players. Can she pull off the upset?

Danielle Collins Preview – Can Collins do it again against Pliskova?

The only previous meeting between Danielle Collins and Karolina Pliskova happened earlier this year.

That was in Melbourne at the Yarra Valley Classic when she knocked Pliskova out in the third round.

That was a straight-sets victory that Collins took, although both sets were won on the tiebreaker.

Collins is even money to follow up and get the better of the Czech player again when they meet on Thursday at the Grand Slam* (odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February)..

So the bookmakers do see her as being a risk in this fixture.

After beating Pliskova in Melbourne, Collins then pushed Serena Williams really hard in their quarter-final duel before eventually falling.

So Collins has a little bit of form behind her coming into this one.

The American is ranked 40th in the world currently and she made a huge splash at the 2019 Australian open.

Our betting prediction:
Over 2.5 sets

(odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February)


In that 2019 Australian Open campaign, Collins ran to the semi-finals, totally against the odds.

It remains the best Grand Slam effort of her career. She lost in the second round of last year’s tournament, however.

Collins gets fired up pretty easily and she could give Pliskova a good run for her money again.

With the American being the underdog a Danielle Collins +1.5 handicap option is at 17/20* (odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February).


Karolina Pliskova Preview – Pliskova may feel the pressure

Karolina Pliskova is going to have to shake off a couple of surprising 2021 losses recently.

In her first tournament action for the new year, she was at the Abu Dhabi Open and she lost in straight sets to Anastasia Gasanova in the second round.

Then came that third-round exit (Pliskova had had a first-round bye) against Collins in Melbourne.

So the Czech star, who is ranked 6th in the world at the moment, is not running in hot form.

In the first round of this season’s Australian Open, Pliskova was up against Jasmine Paolini.

Pliskova did get the win efficiently, dropping only the two games in the match.

So perhaps those early tournaments this year was just an exercise in her trying to get a bit of rust out after so little tennis being played.

But while she is favourite in the tennis betting here, she is not overwhelmingly so.

The win for Pliskova in the match outright is at 4/5* (odds taken 22:04 GMT, Tuesday, 9th February.
