Australian Open Betting Tips | 2022 Australian Open Predictions

Who takes the season’s first Grand Slams in Melbourne?

A new year of Grand Slam tennis is about to begin at Melbourne as some of the world’s best players head to the Australian Open.

After a controversial build-up to the tournament in the wake of Novak Djokovic’s visa troubles, the serious business begins on Monday 17th January, with organisers hoping the Serbian’s saga won’t overshadow the season’s first slam.

With Covid-related issues and badly timed injuries affecting several players in the build-up to this tournament, it’s not just Djokovic’s potential absence that could shake things up at Melbourne Park.

Roger Federer, Dominic Thiem, Serena Williams and Karolina Pliskova are among the big names not taking part this year, which means the 2022 Australian Open betting looks wide open for once in both the Men’s and Women’s Singles.

Here’s our look at the early Aus Open betting…

2022 Australian Open Betting Preview | Who Wins in Melbourne?

Novak Djokovic has reigned supreme at Melbourne Park in recent seasons, but the furore surrounding his intended arrival at this year’s tournament will give plenty of his Men’s Singles rivals hope they can snatch the first slam of the calendar year from his grasp.

Aussie spectators will be keeping their fingers crossed they can assign national treasure status on Ash Barty in the Women’s Singles, with the Queensland-born star the early favourite to claim the Australian Open and move within one title of a Career Grand Slam.  

The tenacious Queensland-born star is a 71/20 chance to send Melbourne Park into raptures come the end of January.

2021 Australian Open Betting Tips

Men’s Singles: Now Nadal’s to lose?

For all his troubles, Djokovic remains the 41/25 favourite to take this title having, at the time of writing, received last-gasp clearance to play, with the Serbian hoping to put recent controversies behind him by sealing this prize for a record-breaking 10th time.

He’ll also be looking to bounce back from a frustrating end to 2021 that saw him lose the US Open final and crash out at the ATP Finals at the semi-final stage.

With Djokovic’s title defence hampered by recent events, Rafael Nadal is also fancied at 19/2 to lift the slam that has most often left him frustrated during an otherwise stellar career.

Thankfully for the Spaniard, the one win he did claim in Melbourne back in 2009 means his status as a Career Grand Slam winner is safe, but nonetheless this remains the only one of the four slams he has failed to win more than once.

He could also surpass both Djokovic and the absent Roger Federer here as the greatest men’s player of all time by slams as he chases a 21st success – one fascinating subplot if rival Djokovic is forced to withdraw from the tournament.

Nadal has made a bright start to his Aus Open preparations with an encouraging warm-up win at his seasonal reappearance at the Melbourne Summer Set.

Is Daniil Medvedev about to usher in an era of dominance as age starts to catch up with the ‘Big Three’?

The 25-year-old Russian certainly looks the one player from the ‘next generation’ capable of pushing on having broken his Grand Slam duck at the US Open last year before finishing runner-up at the season-end ATP Finals.

He’ll be looking to go one better in this tournament in 2022 having fallen at the final hurdle last season with a straight-set defeat to Djokovic, and he’s 44/25 to land this prize.

Alexander Zverev has long been tipped as a Grand Slam winner in the making, but so far he’s lacked the necessary ruthless streak on the biggest stages of them all.

Will the long-heralded crown prince of men’s tennis finally come of age down under?

The 24-year-old still has just one final appearance to his name – the 2020 US Open – and he was downed at the quarter-final stage here last February.

The German is 18/5 to finally show the maturity required to make a name for himself in the slams having signed off last year as an ATP Finals winner.

Finally, could Cameron Norrie cap off an extraordinary six months for British tennis by finally making his presence felt in a Grand Slam?

The 26-year-old has yet to advance past the third round of any of the four slams.

However, he enjoyed the best season of his career in 2021, scooping his first singles title at Indian Wells, becoming British No. 1 before ending it with a late-call up to the ATP Finals.

He’s 80/1 to emulate Emma Raducanu as a first-time British Grand Slam winner.

Women’s Singles: Radacanu to repeat New York heroics?

For British tennis fans, there’s only one big question heading into the opening slam of 2022 on the women’s tour: how will Emma Raducanu cope now she begins the tournament as the hunted rather than the hunter?

While the ultra-calm Raducanu has been successful in playing down the hype surrounding her shock US Open win, she faces a new kind of pressure now as she starts a tournament among the favourites for the first time.

The 19-year-old begins as a 65/4 shot to instantly follow up her New York exploits in the Southern Hemisphere.

However, her preparations haven’t been ideal after a bout of Covid over Christmas. That enforced break meant she was a no-show at the Melbourne Summer Set, and she also slumped to a 6-0 6-1 defeat to Elena Rybakina in her first outing since touching down in Australia.

That could mean the value lies elsewhere as the Brit gradually adapts to her new reality.

Could reigning champion Naomi Osaka put a challenging 12 months behind her by making it back-to-back titles in Victoria?

The American looked no worse for her four-month hiatus from the sport in her first warm-up match back against Alize Cornet, and she’s an 111/20 chance to make it a triumphant return by claiming a third hard-court slam.

Finally, even in an era where Osaka and Serena Williams have perhaps been one step above the rest, it’s worth noting that the Aus Open Women’s Singles title has changed hands every year since 2013.

That means a look at a longer shot could be worth your while in a relatively wide-open market.

Maria Sakkari boasts the general consistency in her game to suggest this could be the year she makes a Grand Slam breakthrough.

The Greek all-rounder made major strides in 2021 in reaching two slam semi-finals, including on the hard courts of Flushing Meadows, where she was felled by eventual winner Emma Raducanu.

The 26-year-old suffered an early blow to her hopes of challenging in Melbourne after a surprise second-round exit from the Adelaide Open, but she is renowned as one of the most physically-resilient players on the circuit, which could come in handy in the energy-sapping Melbourne heat.

She’s a 73/4 shot to write her name into the Grand Slam history books.
