  • Alexei Popyrin (Australia)
  • Jordan Thompson (Australia)

Withdrawals

  • Lucas Pouille (France) –  replaced by Alexander Bublik (Kazakhstan)
  • Novak Djokovic (Serbia) – 

Lucas Pouille

An unfortunate incident forced the Frenchman to withdraw from the Australian Open. The 25-year-old netter, who reached a career-high No. 10 in the Association of Tennis Professionals rankings, called off his 2019 season as the Frenchman hurt his right elbow. As a result, this also caused Lucas Pouille to miss the Davis Cup.

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic did not give any reason to the organizers for the sudden pullout. Reports were saying that Team Serbia qualified for the semifinals and is gunning for the finals slot against Russia. This move will give the World No. 2 player enough time to recover for the Australian Open in Melbourne, where he is the defending champion.

2020 ATP Adelaide International Betting Favorite: Alex de Minaur

The tournament has now become a battle of young guns building up for the Australian Open. Tennis betting picks now favor Australian native de Minaur to take home the title. Based on his excellent win-loss record, 71-48, he is the best choice among the Top 8 players. Rublev and Auger-Aliassime can give the hometown boy a run for the money.
