The first Grand Slam of the tennis season is well under way in Melbourne, and we can’t wait to see the Australian Open action unfold over the next week. Four names have dominated singles’ tennis over the years, but the competition is growing – especially on the WTA Tour where a group of young guns are now giving Serena Williams a run for her money. 스포츠토토
Tennis betting is available at Grosvenor Sport, with outright betting and in-play betting on offer throughout the tournament. And we’ve taken a look at four of the best in each event. Are this year’s Australian Open winners among them? Read it quick – before they get knocked out!
Djokovic made the news during the build-up to the Australian Open for his complaints about the social bubble set-up ahead of this tournament, something which didn’t go down too well. But he’ll be looking to hit the headlines for all the right reasons over the next couple of weeks.
An eight-time winner of this tournament, the Djokovic is looking to make it three in a row at Melbourne for the second time – and he’s unsurprisingly the short favourite to do so. The Serbian loves it on the hard court and it’s hard to look past the World Number 1 to lift his 18th Grand Slam.
‘Nole’ hasn’t been at his best, but has managed to battle beyond Taylor Fritz, Milos Raonic and Alexander Zverev. If he does find his true form in the last two matches, things could be ominous for the opposition.
The Austrian survived to knock out Nick Kyrgios in the match of the tournament, but maybe that 5-set thriller took it out of Thiem – he crashed out in straight sets to Grigor Dimitrov.
The Federer-Nadal-Djokovic combination has dominated men’s tennis for years, but Thiem is the ‘new’ man on the scene – and after several near misses, finally clinched his first Grand Slam last year with a stunning win in the US Open.
The powerful Austrian reached the final of this tournament last year and has every chance of going one better with his fierce groundstrokes and stubborn defence tailor-made to wear down his opponent.
