Australian Open 2016, 1st round – Mladenovic v Cibulkova (02:15)

Cibulkova has won all their 5 previous matches.  They played twice in 2015 on hard courts. The most recent was in August which was the only time Mladenovic took a set from her on a hard court.

Cibulkova has started the year pretty well. She reached the semi finals last week in Hobart losing to Bouchard in 3 sets. In her last 2 Australian Opens she reached the quarter final and the final.

Mladenovic has lost both her matches in 2016.  She had an reasonable season last year.

I favour Cibulkova to win this one but wait for her to be broken before backing her. She starts around 1.53 .
