    Roger Federer is proving he has a lot of great tennis left inside hi 36-year-old body. The 19-time Grand Slam champion can add his 20th major crown to what has been an incredible career on Sunday when he faces No. 6-seeded Marin Cilic in Australian Open Final.

    The match is slated for 3:30 p.m. EST. and can be viewed live on TSN. Federer, who is the defending champion in Melbourne Park, is looking to secure sixth Australian Open title on Sunday. The Swiss legend enters the highly anticipated final as the overwhelming -455 favourite.

    Federer advanced to the championship after his semifinal opponent South Korean Chung Hyeon was forced to retire with a foot injury. Cilic booked his spot in the final after defeating Brit

    “For me, it’s great to be in the final again, giving myself another opportunity to win a Grand Slam,” Cilic told tennis.com. "I’m playing good tennis and definitely very excited for the rest of 2018.”

    Sports Interaction has several intriguing odds set for Sunday’s final, including number of projected sets and total match games. Who will win the opening set? Sports Interaction has a wager for that. Federer is the -312.5 favourite to take the first set of the match, while +209 underdog.

    One thing is certain, this won’t be a blow out for Federer so consider taking the match to go the distance. Federer winning in a five-set thriller is paying out at +400 — a scenario that is highly likely to happen based on how well both of these two have been playing.

    Pick: Roger Federer (-455)

    Simona Halep (-150) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (+115)

    Women’s Tournament Final Odds

    The World No. 1 tennis player on the women’s side will get another chance to win her first singles Grand Slam on Saturday afternoon. Simona Halep booked her spot in the final at Melbourne Park and will face Caroline Wozniacki for the women’s singles crown.

    The match begins at 3:30 p.m. EST and can be viewed on TSN. 

    Halep, who is unbeaten her last 10 matches dating back to the Shenzen Open earlier this month, heads into the women’s final as the -150 favourite. Halep is riding high after defeating Angelique Kerber in the semifinals. At the other end of the court, Wozniacki — the World No. 2 — has also never won a major crown, despite playing in two U.S. Open finals in 2009 and 2014. The Dane is an enticing +115 underdog heading into the contest on Saturday.

    Will the women’s final be a quick contest or go the distance to decide a winner? Both of these players have struggled under the championship pressure, so it is likely a full three sets will be required to crown a new champion. Consider taking Caroline Wozniacki to win 2 sets to 1, which will pay out at +335. Sports Interaction has set a projected match games total at 21 ½ but expect a long, gruelling contest to determine a champion, with Wozniacki coming out on top in the end.

    Pick: Caroline Wozniacki (+115)
