Early 2023 ATP & WTA Australian Open Betting Odds and Predictions

A Look at Past Champions

Novak Djokovic has the most success among all male players in the Australian Open. The 21-time Grand Slam winner wasn’t able to compete in last year’s event due to his vaccination status, but had his Visa reinstated and will compete this year. Rafael Nadal won the Australian Open for the second time in his career and first since 2009 last year, but Djokovic had won the prior three tournaments.

None of the other top-10 betting favorites for the 2023 Australian Open have won in Melbourne. Daniil Medvedev, however, has lost in back-to-back Australian Open finals.

Ashleigh Barty was the women’s Australian Open champion last year but subsequently announced her retirement, shocking the tennis world. Naomi Osaka won the Australian Open for the second time in 2021. Other past winners include Sofia Kenin (2020), Caroline Wozniacki (2018), and Angelique Kerber (2016).

Early Best-Value Bets

It’s hard to bet against Djokovic, especially at the Australian Open. It’s his best Grand Slam, and he’ll be extra motivated after being unable to play in last year’s event. He’s also one Grand Slam victory away from tying Nadal for the most all-time. Djokovic is playing well heading into the tournament and won the ATP Finals in November for the second time in his career.

That said, Djokovic isn’t quite as dominant as he once was, and there’s a group of emerging stars ready to take over the men’s game. Carlos Alcaraz won the US Open, the last Grand Slam on the 2022 calendar, and is the world No. 1. Alcaraz is a solid bet, but if you’re looking for a good long-odds pick, then Felix Auger-Aliassime at +1800 is a very strong bet. The Canadian won three tournaments in a row near the end of last season and is poised to take another step in Australia.

Like Djokovic on the men’s side, Iga Swiatek might be hard to topple in Australia. The betting favorite and world No. 1 had one of the most dominant seasons on the WTA Tour in recent memory, too, at one point winning more than 30 matches in a row.

Outside of Swiatek, the women’s game is very unpredictable, with plenty of worthy challengers. Osaka is a two-time winner in Australia but is coming off of one of the worst years of her career. Coco Gauff at +1600 is a player worth betting on as the talented American has been progressing in each of the last two years and seems ready to take the next step in her career.
