In the third round match of the Australian Open on January 23 between Riske and Goerges, bookmakers do not single out a clear favorite. Who will be closer to win? – we learn from the prediction of a tennis expert.
Bet and win
Before starting the Australian Open, Alison Riske held a successful tournament in Brisbane. She was able to reach the quarterfinal then, losing only to future winner Karolina Pliskova (6-7, 3-6).
In Melbourne, an American tennis player in the opening matches confirmed her status as a favorite of bookmakers and went through the tournament bracket of two Chinese tennis players Wang Yafan (7-6, 2-6, 6-3) and Zhu Lin (6-3, 6-1). Significantly more confident and with fewer unforced errors worked in the second game.
The 39th racket of the world, Julia Goerges, before starting at the Australian Open played in two tournaments. In Auckland, she reached the quarterfinals, and in Adelaide, she lost to Bencic in the second round (6-7, 6-7). Goerges had victories only over decently rivals in the class.
In Melbourne, in the second round with great difficulty, Goerges passed Petru Martic (4-6, 6-3, 7-5). The first serve was noticeably helped by Julia (84% of the points scored), but at the same time, not the highest figures in the percentage of hitting the first goal (55%) allowed her opponent to have a chance at the reception (Martic had eight breakpoints, two of which she could realize).
Statistics and personal meetings
- In three personal meetings, Goerges won twice.
- The last personal meeting in 2019 ended in a victory for Risk.
Alison Riske vs Julia Goerges Prediction
Bookmakers give a slight preference in the upcoming match of Julia Goerges. Meanwhile, the German tennis player often lacks stability in order to work out several matches in a row at the same level against competitors comparable in level. According to the current form, Risk is able to cause many problems for Julia at the reception. Martic did not take full advantage of her chances. We expect that Risk will be able to win and even the score in personal meetings in a difficult match.
