Ons Jabeur has been on the cusp of a Grand Slam victory lately and she’ll have another shot at capturing her first-career major title this month at the 2023 Australian Open.

Why Bet on Andrey Rublev?

With four wins from 2022 and several other strong showings in ATP Tour events, Andrey Rublev enters the Australian Open as the seventh-best male tennis player in the world. He also had a shot at being awarded the ATP Finals champion, finishing as a semifinalist in the last tournament of the previous season.

Rublev has been one of the more consistent players on the ATP. However, the Moscow native has yet to secure a win at a Grand Slam event. Since 2020, he’s made the quarterfinal stage of a Grand Slam a total of five times out of 10 appearances but has not cracked a semifinal finish yet throughout his career.

The 25-year-old has a great shot at getting his campaign Down Under on the right foot. Rublev has failed to escape the first round of the Aussie Open only once in six-career trips, and his 4-2 head-to-head record against Thiem also boosts his chances of advancing to the next round with relative ease.

Why Bet on Dominic Thiem?

Unlike Rublev, Dominic Thiem can brag about having won a Grand Slam tournament already, picking up his one and only major victory back in the 2020 US Open. Not only that, but he’s also a three-time runner-up at GS events between 2018 and 2020.

On the other hand, Thiem has not been at the top of his game these past couple of years mainly due to a myriad of injuries. The Austrian veteran has only appeared in half of the Grand Slam tournaments between 2021 and 2022, including last year’s edition of the Australian Open.

Nevertheless, Thiem has slowly crept back into the top 100 of the world rankings since and will pose a formidable threat to Rublev’s run. Although, a quick first-round exit in Adelaide as his tune-up tourney before the Aussie Open is not a good way to start the new year.

Andrey Rublev vs. Dominic Thiem Betting Trends

  • As mentioned earlier Rublev is 4-2 lifetime against Thiem, having won each of their last four encounters.
  • Rublev went 19-7 in hard-court tournaments last season.
  • Thiem went 6-3 in his last three events played to close out the previous season.
  • Thiem has gone 7-5 on the hard court over the last two seasons.

Andrey Rublev vs. Dominic Thiem Expert Betting Prediction

There’s quite a bit of history between these two men, which is a positive sign for Thiem as he seeks to return to his former glory. However, Rublev has gotten the better of his opponent since 2019 and has youth on his side compared to the now-29-year-old Thiem. Consider this a win for Rublev and with Thiem likely stealing no more than one set in their upcoming showdown.
