Pickswise's Expert Predictions & Analysis
Ashleigh Barty at +600 is a reasonable price. When healthy, the reigning Wimbledon champion is far and away the best player on tour right now. By comparison, co-favorite Naomi Osaka, representing host nation Japan, should be avoided like the absolute plague given her well-documented off-the-court issues.
Although Barty is a good bet, there is otherwise a ton of parity on the women’s tour and a longshot play in Tokyo would not be a bad idea. Barbora Krejcikova (+1800) won the French Open, played well at Wimbledon, and is coming off another title last week in Prague. Check the draw first, but if she stays away from Barty then Krejcikova becomes a strong play.
