…But he did! Hyeon Chung proved all Australian Open 2018 betting predictions wrong by beating the Serbian tennis star.
All online sportsbook news sites in Australia were expecting a dream semi-final with Nadal, Federer, Dimitrov and Djokovic participating. While the first three still have a chance to make it to the top 4, the latter one is already out of the race. Novak Djokovic played South Korea’s Hyeon Chung earlier today, and was easily defeated, contradicting all existing Australian Open 2018 betting predictions.
Will we see any other unexpected results at Australian Open 2018?
The elimination of Novak Djokovic was definitely the most unexpected Australian Open 2018 result so far. However, the competition is still only in the quarter finals. The most important questions is if the remaining players will be capable of living up to the expectations, or will we see another set of unexpected results?
Rafa Nadal came as #1, but he will definitely have a tough challenge against #6 Marin Cilic. However, online sportsbook sites in Australia believe the Spaniard will march forward to the semi-finals. The odds for Nadal to win are 1.22, while those for Cilic are 4.20 at Bwin Sports.
On the other hand, we have the reigning champion, Roger Federer, who is about to face Thomas Berdych. Australian Open 2018 betting predictions believe Federer is even more likely: the odds for Federer to win are 1.15, while the odds for Berdych to beat Federer are 5.25.
How far can Chung go?
Hyeon Chung meets Tennys Sandgren in the upcoming round, and is expected to beat him as well. He can’t be as tough of an opponent as a former number 1 crack: the odds for Chung to win are 1.15. And then you also have Dimitrov, of course. The Bulgarian will face Kyle Edmund, and is expected to win easily, according to Australian Open 2018 betting predictions. The odds for Dimitrov to win are 1.28 at Bwin Sports.
Who will win Australian Open 2018?
As you can see, Australian Open 2018 betting predictions expect Dimitrov, Nadal, Federer and Chung to reach Australian Open 2018 semi-finals. But who could win? Who will win Australian Open 2018? If we keep believing in Australian Open 2018 betting predictions, we should put our money on Roger Federer: his odds are 2.10 at Bwin Sports.
The second biggest favourite to win Australian Open 2018 is obviously Nadal, with his 3.00 odds. Can this victory give so much of a morale boost to Chung that he actually will win Australian Open 2018? The odds don’t expect so: Chung’s odds to win Australian Open are 15.00. But at least he is surely favourite to reach the semi-final.
