It promises to be a good game to watch, of course, but how are the predictions shaping up for this one? Let me guide you through now.

- 2 Dayana Yastremska setting sights on another upset in Melbourne
- 3 Key match details
We have a ton of tennis predictions today that relate to third-round matches at the Australian Open. Yet for this specific match, this will be the first meeting between Navarro and Yastremska. Both players are in their early 20s, and both are looking to establish themselves on the biggest stages in tennis, which means this contest should be a competitive one.
As for my Navarro vs Yastremska predictions, here they are:
Yastremska to win @ 17/10 (2.70)
Based on the current odds, Yastremska is not the favourite to win, which makes this market a bit of a steal. I say this because not only has she qualified for the main draw, but she has then proceeded to take out the number 7 seed in straight sets followed by a solid win over Gracheva too. So for me, she is more than capable of producing another upset here.
Yastremska +3.5 games handicap @ 10/11 (1.91)
Given that I’ve picked Yastremska for the win as the underdog, I believe it’s a good move to back this up with a +3.5 games handicap pick too. In this case, if she wins, both markets will come through. But if she loses in a tight contest, this market has a very good chance on its own.
Navarro has a 69.20% probability of winning this match according to the latest odds. But for Yastremska, the implied chance is just 37.00%.
Dayana Yastremska setting sights on another upset in Melbourne
Look back at the Australian Open draw and things are pretty interesting for these two. Yet I’d like to give you a quick preview for both now to supply a little more information:
Navarro is the higher-ranked player here at 26 in the world, and she received direct entry into the main draw because of this. But to be honest, she’s looked vulnerable in the first couple of rounds – going three sets with both of her unseeded opponents.
Dayana Yastremska preview
It goes without saying that qualifiers aren’t expected to go far in the main draw, but Yastremska is defying all the odds so far. She won three matches to qualify, and she’s only gotten better in her two main draw matches. In fact, she hasn’t dropped a set in the main draw, despite being ranked 93 in the world.
This will be the very first instalment of Navarro vs Yastremska. And of course, only one of them can make it through to the fourth round.
