Predictions

We ask the biggest questions on everyone’s lips before the 2019 Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the year.

Will Roger Federer win a third successive Australian Open title for number seven and surely now finally bow out and into retirement in style, or will Novak Djokovic get to that mark instead? Will one of youngsters like Germany’s wunderkind, Alexander Zverev or runner-up in Brisbane International lead-up tournament, Russia’s Daniil Medvedev break through in a generational changing of the guard and win one for the Millennials?

Surely age has finally caught up with Roger Federer, and as much as we love him and we have made plenty of money betting on him in the past, the time has come for Melbourne’s extreme heat to wear him down.

Our tip for the title is Novak Djokovic, who at short odds stills supplies plenty of value for punters everywhere.

If you fancy a bet on one of the outsiders for betting value, Kei Nishikori is in great form, as the winner of November ATP Tour Finals, Alexander Zverev.

Steer clear of Rafael Nadal, who is an unknown quantity with little match play under his belt due to injury.

Betting Tips

  • Novak Djokovic to win his 7th Australian Open Title 

Novak is back-to-his-best after a stellar 2018 winning back-to-back Grand Slams at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

  • Best Outsider – Kei Nishikori to win his 1st Australian Open Title 

Nishikori broke his title drought recently at the Brisbane International and represents wonderful betting value to win the 2019 Australian Open.
