Jelena Ostapenko Australian Open 2023: Odds, Next Match and Predictions

If you’re searching for information about Jelena Ostapenko, her odds and chances at the Australian Open, then look no further.

Jelena Ostapenko Australian Open 2023 Odds

You may or may not remember Jelena Ostapenko, the unseeded player who pulled off a huge comeback at the 2017 French Open final, beating Simona Halep for the title. Ostapenko will participate in the 2023 Australian Open, and these are her outright odds.

Ahead of her fourth round clash against Gauff, Aljona Ostapenko was still priced at a massive 66/1. However, those odds were slashed significantly, partly because some of the top seeded players were knocked out of the quarterfinals. As it stands, Ostapenko is valued at 12/1 to win the Australian Open title. With that in mind, let’s see how Aljona has fared so far.

Previous Rounds – Jelena Ostapenko Australian Open 2023

Jelena Ostapenko took on Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska in the first round of the Australian Open. These players had previously met once, when Ostapenko lost in three sets at the Birmingham Open. This time however, Aljona Ostapenko did everything right, winning in straight sets.

Ostapenko’s second round opponent was Hungarian Anna Bondar. The former French Open champion came out on top in three sets, with the third set being a flawless 6-0 bagel.

Furthermore, Jelena Ostapenko met Kateryna Baindl, another Ukrainian in the third round. This was a very one-sided contest, with Penko winning 6-3, 6-0.

Heading into her round of 16 clash, Jelena Ostapenko was an overwhelming underdog against Coco Gauff. However, the former Roland Garros champion held her own against her American opponent, winning in straight sets.

Jelena Ostapenko Australian Open 2023 Prediction – Quarterfinal

Jelena Ostapenko is having her best ever outing at the Australian Open. She surrendered just one set in four matches so far. However, the 25 year old will need to overcome a difficult opponent in the quarter-final. Elena Rybakina is red hot right now, and despite Ostapenko’s recent form, we’re not entirely sure of her chances.

Should she win however, she would set up a semi-final clash with Jessica Pegula or Victoria Azarenka. These are some of the toughest players on the WTA Tour. All things considered, we shouldn’t expect to see Aljona in the final of this tournament.
