Christina McHale to beat Caroline Wozniacki at 19/5 (sportingbet)

With little catching the eye on Thursday's order of play, I'm going in search of an upset and McHale fits the bill. A former top-25 player, the American is on her way back up the rankings after having last season ruined by glandular fever. She's already enjoyed some impressive results in Sydney, qualifying in style and beating Alize Cornet in the main draw before losing to Petra Kvitova in round two. That was a heavy loss but Wozniacki does not have the weapons of the Czech and I can see this being an attritional affair - the sort Wozniacki used to win but more recently has become vulnerable in. McHale actually leads the pair's head-to-head record 2-1 and with Wozniacki having had little match practice of late after a shoulder problem delayed the start of her season, this looks worth a play.
