Britain’s Johanna Konta will open her Australian Open account on Monday. The former semi finalist at Melbourne Park has already dialed back realistic expectations.

That’s because she has been carrying a knee problem and may well have to play through the pain. She’s basically been away from action for four months as well. Will the British number one be able to get through this first round match?

Konta can tough it out in tournament opener?

Any thoughts of Britain’s number one Johanna Konta having a deep run at Melbourne Park this year can be wiped out. She has been out for four months and still is struggling to get to peak health. The knee problem that she is still carrying was picked up in early January last year.

She has been in action this year. She entered and exited the Brisbane International in the first round of the Brisbane International, losing against Barbora Strycova in three sets. Jo Konta’s record at the Australia has seen her lose in the round of 64 in the last two editions. Her best efforts remains her 2016 place in the final four.

Key-Facts – Johanna Konta vs Ons Jabeur

  • Konta has just returned after four months out
  • Johanna Konta reached the 2016 AUS Open semi’s
  • Ons Jabeur has never been past the first round at Melbourne Park


Jabeur eyes up an upset

Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur is ranked 78th in the world at the moment and has never won a WTA title. She has some action on the Tour this year. Following a first round exit in Shenzhen, she ran to the round of sixteen at the Hobart International.

That was four matches she had in Hobart, two of them from qualification rounds. She narrowly lost out to Garbine Muguruza at the even in three sets. She has never made it past the opening round of the Australian Open. But Jabeur was a surprise participant in the round of 32 at the US Open last year.

Johanna Konta v Ons Jabeur Prediction and tip

Konta played through most of last season, which was actually a very good one, with the knee problem that she sustained at the start of the year.

There is little indication of just how fit she is at the moment. If her serve is working, she can rely on that to get through. But still a Konta 2-1 set betting option is the way to roll for this opener at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken from Betway on January 19th, 2020 at 11:05 am).

That’s because there is no indication of how comfortable she is and Jabeur did just take a set off Muguruza in Hobart.
