Its certainly gearing up to be an exciting tournament as fans favourite Maria Sharapova takes the stage in Melbourne, looking for her fifth Grand Slam win of her career.
The number three seed has taken time out of tennis having missed the US Open, but is sure to go far in the tournament after reaching the semi final in Brisbane last week.
As expected, Sharapova is the heavy favourite going into the game at a price of 1/12, while those expecting a shock can take the 7/1 available on the upset.
Those expecting an upset however may have to wait as Sharapova has a 5-0 win record against her opponent, who is coming back to full fitness after taking time out to recover from injury.
That said, 28yr old American Mattek-Sands did have a promising run in the Brisbane tournament preceding the Australian Open, where she came up short in the quarter final, having to retire to Madison Keys.
The 28yr old can upset the form book, knocking out Sydney defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska, however she has a dismal record in the Australian Open, having never reached the second round.
It should be a smooth run in to the next round for Sharapova, who can be backed at a best price of 4/11 to take the match 2 sets to nil, and there are many expecting that result.
It should be a superb spectacle, with crowd favourite Sharapova the final game from the the Rod Laver Arena on Day Two.
