Ekaterina Makarova: Strong record in Melbourne
Ekaterina Makarova: Strong record in Melbourne

Here are their thoughts ahead of Sunday's play.

Andy Schooler,

More than 20.5 games in Li Na v Ekaterina Makarova at 10/11 (William Hill, Stan James, Paddy Power)

Li may have won all four of the pair's previous meetings but they've usually been tight with a third set required on three occasions, each of which has seen this mark overcome. Li only just survived against another player who always pushes her hard, Lucie Safarova, in the last round and so far hasn't produced the form which has taken her to two finals in Melbourne in the past. Makarova regularly performs here - she's been a quarter-finalist in each of the last two years - and her love of these courts can see her compete well against Li. She's worth considering at 3/1 in the match market but given her 0-4 record, the total games market is the one I'm going to play where even a hard-fought straight-sets win could reap a profit.
