Betting for Tennis in 2023 Australian Open

Men’s singles

Hundreds of tennis stars will take part in the 2023 Australian Open with 128 each for the men’s and women’s side. These feature top seed and defending champion Nadal and nine-time winner Djokovic, who is coming back after an unfortunate 2022 tournament, as he was deported due to Australia’s tough COVID-19 vaccine rules. Now with the restrictions lifted, the Serbian has returned and will look to secure his 10th Australian Open title and claim the World No1 ranking once more. Aside from Djokovic and Nadal, veteran campaigners Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev, Daniil Medvedev and Felix Auger-Aliassime are taking part in the men’s side. However, current World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz withdrew due to injury and so did Marin Cilic, Reilly Opelka and Gael Monfils. Despite their withdrawals, expect an eventful men’s singles tournament this year with Nadal and Djokovic emerging as top favorites.

2023 Australian Open Picks

The men’s singles is expected to be a big-time clash between Nadal and Djokovic in the final but rising stars Ruud, Rune, Auger-Aliassime, Tsitsipas, Fritz and Hurkacz are also in the mix to contend for the crown. There is a possibility that hometown bet Nick Kyrgios would rise to the occasion and take part in the final stages as well. In the end, Djokovic, who is bidding to gain his 10th Australian Open crown, will be determined to make a comeback from being deported last year and is a lock to romp home with the title and possibly the men’s World No1 ranking by the end of the tournament. 

As for the women’s side, Swiatek will be an overwhelming favorite in the first Grand Slam event of the year. But the balanced competition would see some upsets and the Polish netter is not safe from a surprise beating. Other stars like Sabalenka, Gauff, Pegula and Garcia are other contenders in the tennis tournament as they hope to outstage Swiatek and gain valuable ranking points. Tennis picks and parlays are siding with Swiatek in the Australian Open but she is not the overwhelming favorite, considering the competitiveness of the women’s singles division as of late.
