Naomi Osaka will take on in-form Amanda Anisimova in the third round of the 2022 Australian Open on Friday.
Anisimova is one of the best in-form players at the moment, having won each of her last 14 matches on hard courts. Amanda has recently won the Melbourne Summer Set 2 trophy recently after a 2-1 victory over Sasnovich in the final. The American has recently joined forces with coach Darren Cahill for a trial period, and this Melbourne title was actually her first one in three years.
Amanda kicked off her Australian Open campaign with an unconvincing 2-1 win over Hartono, but she did well to beat Bencic in straight sets in the second round.
Osaka, meanwhile, began her title defence with a straight-set win over Serrano and followed that up with another comfortable victory over Brengle. Osaka had a flawless first set against Brengle, but had to recover going down a break in the second set before winning the tie.
She has now reached the Third Round of the Australian Open for the sixth time in seven appearances.
Osaka has only dropped one game in five matches this year so far, but it will be interesting to see if she can keep this record clean against an in-form opponent like Anisimova.
We expect an entertaining match, so our prediction is Over 21.5 Games at odds of 9/10 with Bet365.
