AUSTRALIAN Open odds are released almost the moment the tournament finishes for another year. It is the first Grand Slam played each year, held in Melbourne, Australia, with 2019’s event running from January 14-27.
The tournament will boast some of the greatest names to have ever graced the court, with defending champion Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal all among the key chances in the men.
Serena Williams was unable to defend her title in 2018, but the great American is the bookies’ favourite this year. Others to look out for include Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza and defending champion Caroline Wozniacki.
Another notable Aussie contender is Thanasi Kokkinakis at $101. The Adelaide youngster has enormous all-round potential, but he has to prove he can get his body right.
Ashleigh Barty ($29) is the pick of the Australian options after a successful return to tennis in 2017. Other possible Aussie contenders are Daria Gavrilova at $101 and Sam Stosur at $201, but both had patchy ends to last season and look to be long shots to win the ladies crown.
