Linda Noskova vs Dayana Yastremska prediction and odds: Australian Open 2024

The second set of quarter-final matches is about to commence in Melbourne. And this makes my tennis predictions today both exciting and indicative of who we might see in the semi-finals. Of course, it’s Noskova vs Yastremska for a spot in the semis, so let’s look at how this match could swing now.

Our favourite Linda Noskova vs Dayana Yastremska predictions

At the beginning of the Australian Open schedule, these two names probably weren’t on the lips of many tennis punters. On the one hand, Noskova is just a teenager, and she is ranked 50 in the world. Yet on the other hand, things are even more unexpected, as Yastremska is ranked 93 in the world – not to mention that she qualified for the event.

As for my predictions, please see the selections below:

Noskova to win @ 8/15 (1.53)

To be honest, it’s impossible not to back the player who has just taken out the world number one in the third round. Furthermore, I was impressed with how she held her nerve in the closing stages of that match. So for me, she has the belief and the ability necessary to get past Yastremska.

Over 20.5 games @ 4/6 (1.67)

While I think Noskova will win, this will not be a walk in the park. Yastremska is playing the tennis of her life. And for that reason, I think she will push Noskova to the limit, which could result in either two close sets or a three set battle.

Noskova vs Yastremska – who will defy the odds again and reach the semis?

As mentioned above, both of these players were not expected to be in the quarters of the 2024 Australian Open. But let’s look into each player a little further now for greater clarity on how this has happened:

Linda Noskova  preview

If there was one word to describe Noskova in this tournament it would be ‘fearless’. The 19-year-old has been sensational and courageous at every turn, and she has earned wins against three seeds to get this far. Most prominently, she took out Iga Swiatek in round three, while Svitolina retired after just three games in round four.

Dayana Yastremska preview

Yastremska is experiencing quite the fairytale in Melbourne this year. She has won seven matches already to reach this point since she came through qualifying. And this is the number required to win a Grand Slam for main draw entrants. Furthermore, she’s taken out the 7th, 27th, and 18th seeds en route to the quarters.

Noskova vs Yastremska head to head

These two have never faced each other in a WTA tournament. Therefore, it’s intriguing that the first time they will play is in a Grand Slam quarter-final. Of course, this sets the stage for a nervy yet exciting battle at Melbourne Park.
