Australian Open: Women's final betting preview

Jan 25, 2013 |
Victoria Azarenka (-140) vs. Na Li (+120)

The world's top player enters the final in the midst of controversy after taking a medical timeout for breathing issues prior to the final game of the semifinal match. Azarenka was frazzled, but regained her composure after the timeout to break Sloane Stephens and win the match.

Azarenka is looking to become the eighth player to win back-to-back Australian Open titles. Na Li enters the final off straight set wins over Agnie Radwanska and Maria Sharapova. Both players were in great form before being ousted by China's top women's player.

Azarenka holds 5-4 career head to head advantage, but Li has won both meetings that occurred at majors including the 2011 Australian Open. Azarenka has won 20 straight matches in the month of January (dating back to the 2011 loss to Li).
