The 2023 Tennis Grand Slam schedule is out. It’s early. So don’t take our word for it just yet, but we handicapped the four tennis grand slam events and have chosen a top pick and the best underdog play for both the men’s singles and the women’s singles. Again, more handicapping is required. But for now, these are our thoughts. Let’s get right to it so you can plan your bets against the Tennis Odds.
2023 Grand Slams Betting Predictions and Tennis Odds for Next Year’s Events
2023 Australian Open
- When: January 16 – 29
Australian Open Men’s Singles
- Top Pick: Novak Djokovic -106
Djokovic had another decent 2022, bagging 5 singles titles and going 42-7 in singles matches. Novak should start the season out well by winning his tenth Australian Open.
- Top Underdog: Taylor Fritz +2600
Taylor won 3 singles titles and went 46-21 in singles matches last season. If he improves, he could challenge for the Australian Open title.
Australian Open Women’s Singles
- Top Pick: Iga Swiatek +158
The chalk fell in the semifinals at the 2022 Australian Open. No doubt, Iga will want to make amends for that performance with a victory in 2023.
- Top Underdog: Bianca Andreescu +2200
Andreescu hasn’t played well at the Australian Open. But the 2019 U.S. Open winner’s form could be turning positive this year. If she gets back to her best form, she’ll be tough to beat no matter the surface.
2023 French Open – Roland Garros
- When: May 28 – June 11
French Open Men’s Singles
- Top Pick: Carlos Alcaraz +168
Alcaraz is still learning. So by the time the French Open rolls around in May, Carlos should be at the top of his game.
- Top Underdog: Alexander Zverev +1375
2023 is the year for Alexander Zverev to get it done. Alexander should win his first major title. It could be at Roland Garros.
French Open Women’s Singles
- Top Pick: Iga Swiatek -110
Now is the time for Swiatek to solidify her position as the best woman player in tennis. Swiatek already has two French Open victories. A third is a real possibility.
- Top Underdog: Aryna Sabalenka +1800
Sabalenka upset Swiatek in a semifinal match at the WTA Finals. Expect Aryna to take a massive forward step this year. She should move well beyond the third round at Roland Garros.
2023 Wimbledon Championships
- When: July 3 – July 16
Wimbledon Championships Men’s Singles
- Top Pick: Novak Djokovic +107
Djoker has won seven Wimbledon titles. Novak will head into the 2023 Wimbledon tournament searching for his third straight plate. At the current +107 odds, Djokovic might be an overlay.
- Top Underdog: Stefanos Tsitsipas +2100
If Stefanos is tennis’ next great men’s star after Alcaraz, which so many believe he is, he must win a major this year. He’ll be under the radar at Wimbledon. So the plate grand slam might be the time to back him.
Wimbledon Championships Women’s Singles
- Top Pick: Iga Swiatek +370
Yep. We’re going with Iga again. Swiatek should take the first three grand slam events to set up a possible sweep at the U.S. Open in late summer.
- Top Underdog: Coco Gauff +1300
Like what happened this year, Coco started to turn it on later in the season. A Gauff versus Swiatek final at Wimbledon would be epic.
2023 U.S. Open – Flushing Meadows
- When: August 28 – September 10
U.S. Open Men’s Singles
- Top Pick: Daniil Medvedev +295
Medvedev lost to Nick Kyrgios in the fourth-round at the 2022 U.S. Open. He should play much better than that at this year’s Open because unlike 2022, people won’t hate him in 2023 because he’s Russian.
- Top Underdog: Frances Tiafoe +3100
Tiafoe lost in the semifinals. Frances knows he can hang with the best of the best. The key for Tiafoe is to play as well as he did at the U.S. Open for the entire season. Because Frances had so much success at Flushing Meadows, expect him to circle the 2023 Open on his calendar.
U.S. Open Women’s Singles
- Top Pick: Iga Swiatek +220
Iga takes all four grand slam titles. Why not? Serena has retired and Simona Halep hasn’t dominated. So the crown is Swiatek’s if she want is.
- Top Underdog: Coco Gauff +1100
Gauff is on the precipice of greatness. So if Swiatek fails at the U.S. Open, Coco will be there to win the title.
