World no.66 Barbora Krejcikova is currently trying her hand in singles having previously won multiple grand slams in the doubles category. The Czech defeated Lauren Davis in the first round before getting the better of fourth seed Elena Rybakina in three sets.

Jennifer Brady

The two players have very similar games yet they have had very contrasting outings in the 2021 Aussie summer so far. Jennifer Brady has won her opening two games comfortably dropping just 8 games. On the other hand, both of Barbora Krejcikova’s opening round matches went to the distance. She has played over 4 hours on court in the tournament; 2 hours more than her opponent.

The American looks the clear favorite to win this unless the Czech plays out of her skin.

Prediction: Brady to win in straight sets.
