• Azarenka and Kuznetzova could cause chaos at Australian Open
• Halep rejuvenated but may have to beat both Williams sisters for title
Simona Halep is reckoned to be the second best player in the women’s draw at the Australian Open, with a reasonable chance of beating the world No1 Serena Williams to the AUS$3.4m cheque waiting for the winner on Sunday week.
However there are two players who may undermine both of those campaigns, given the top two seeds are struggling to convince doubters of their fitness. If the 14th seed and newly-crowned Brisbane champion Victoria Azarenka, who is in Halep’s way, and the Sydney winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, who is lurking on the opposite side and deceptively seeded at 23, hit a run of form, there could be mayhem in the draw.
