Belinda Bencic Australian Open 2023: Odds, Next Match and Predictions

Belinda Bencic has been on an impressive run this year. The Swiss player is fresh off her first title of the season at Adelaide, and will look to extend her blistering run into the Australian Open. With that in mind, we would like to take a look at Bencic’s chances at this year’s Australian Open.

These are the odds offered on Belinda Bencic to win the 2023 Australian Open:

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with the bookmaker before placing the bet.

It’s important to point out that Iga Swiatek, who was heavily favoured to win the Australian Open, exited in the Round of 16. For this reason, some players saw their outright odds reduced significantly. That said, Belinda Bencic is now valued at 10/1 to hoist the first grand slam of 2023. Before we go into her chances, let’s look at Bencic’s performance so far.

Previous Rounds – Belinda Bencic Australian Open 2023

Belinda Bencic kicked off her Australian Open campaign against Viktoriya Tomova. She broke her opponent five times en route to a straight sets victory.

Next, Bencic took on 62nd ranked Claire Liu. Although Liu put up a better fight than Bencic’s previous opponent, the Swiss player was still able to win in straight sets.

In her third round match against Camila Giorgi, Belinda Bencic converted five of 10 breakpoints, dispatching the Italian in straight sets. Interestingly, this was her third consecutive victory over Giorgi.

Upcoming Match vs Sabalenka – Belinda Bencic Australian Open 2023

With her win against Giorgi, Belinda Bencic set up a mouthwatering clash with Aryna Sabalenka. These two will go head-to-head for the third time in their respective careers, as they’ve both won one of two encounters between them. It’s important to point out that these players have won seven or more matches in a row, so it’ll be interesting to see how Bencic will match-up against her Belarusian opponent.

Belinda Bencic’s Form Prior to Australian Open 2023

Belinda Bencic Australian Open 2023 Prediction – Fourth Round or Final

Belinda Bencic will play in the fourth round of the Australian Open for the second time in her career on Monday; she has never gone through to the quarterfinal of this competition. Bearing that in mind, Bencic faces a tricky test in the round of 16, against an in-form Sabalenka.

Should she beat Sabalenka, Belinda’s draw would ease up a bit. Potential quarter-final opponents are Donna Vekic and Linda Fruhvirtova; we are fairly confident that Belinda would reach the semi-final at the expense of these players should they meet. Furthermore, potential semi-final opponents are Caroline Garcia, Karolina Pliskova, Magda Linette and Shuai Zhang. All in all, we believe that Belinda Bencic can reach the Australian Open final if she can beat Sabalenka in the round of 16.
