Australian Open Men's Betting Favourites

Australian Open 2020 - Men's Favourites

On the face of it, men's tennis is ruled by three titans who show no sign of relinquishing their grip on the sport. All-time greats Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer have shared the last 14 Grand Slams between them. But at the ages of 33, 32, and 38 respectively, there has to come a time when these legends begin to fade. Will it be at the 2020 Australian Open?

Who Will Win The 2020 Australian Open Men’s Title?

If this year's ATP Finals are anything to go by, there are realistic contenders who could push them close in the first Grand Slam of the year, which takes place from Monday, 20th January to 4th February at Melbourne Park. Let’s take a look at the frontrunners for the men’s title at the 2020 Australian Open:

Novak Djokovic - 5/4 To Win The Australian Open

Bet On Novak Djokovic To Win The Australian Open

Defending champion Djokovic reclaimed his spot at the summit of the sport when he rebounded from a tricky two years at Wimbledon 2018, winning that tournament and the next two Grand Slams. Djokovic retained his Wimbledon title and sealed a record seventh Australian Open title in 2019, and although he exited the recent ATP Finals at the Group Stage, the Serbian will be considered one of the major threats in Melbourne. The current world number two has confirmed he will play the new Adelaide International as part of his preparations, allowing us to see how he is limbering up for his favourite major.

Rafael Nadal - 9/2 To Win The Australian Open

Bet On Rafael Nadal To Win The Australian Open

Like his long-time rival Djokovic, Nadal bounced back from injury to enjoy a golden 2019 in which he appeared revitalised. The Spaniard added a fourth US Open title to an incredible 12th triumph at a French Open tournament he has made his own over the years. Nadal ended the year on something of a high note when he led Spain to the Davis Cup title and will be gunning for his second Australian Open crown, although he has reached the final of the Grand Slam no less than five times. With the Rafa renaissance in full swing, don't rule out tennis's relentless battler from repeating his 2009 victory, when he beat Federer in an epic five-set final.

Roger Federer - 10/1 To Win The Australian Open

Bet On Roger Federer To Win The Australian Open

There was no Grand Slam for the iconic Swiss in 2019, but certainly enough positives to suggest his time at the top is not over. Federer reached the Final of Wimbledon last year, but couldn't add to his six Australian Open crowns, falling at the fourth round. With some rest and recovery in the bank, could we see Federer come out of the blocks quickly with a rousing display in Melbourne? The world number three went further than either Nadal or Djokovic at the end of year ATP Finals, making the knockout stage. Can the 20-time Grand Slam winner, who many believe is the greatest of all time, add another glorious chapter to his storied career?

Stefanos Tsitsipas - 10/1 To Win The Australian Open

Bet On Stefanos Tsitsipas To Win The Australian Open

Tsitsipas won the ATP Finals in London, beating Dominic Thiem in the final. Winning a tournament contested by the eight highest-ranked available players - which has been dubbed as the fifth Grand Slam - could do wonders for the confidence of the up and coming Greek. That victory on the hard courts of the O2 Arena - which saw him beat Federer in the Semi-Finals - bodes well for Melbourne, as does a Semi-Final finish which Tsitsipas achieved last year. With the prospect of a healthy fan backing thanks to Australia's sizable Greek population, could Tsitsipas upstage the household names in the draw?

Will Dominic Thiem Win The Australian Open

Bet On Dominic Thiem To Win The Australian Open

Outside the 'holy trinity' or Nadal, Djokovic and Federer, Austrian Thiem might have the best shot at lifting the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup. The world number four has emerged as one of the most consistent players on the circuit - he took home five titles on the ATP Tour last year with his hard-hitting brand of aggressive baseline play. Thiem then reached the Final of the ATP Finals in London, but it should be noted that he is yet to make a memorable impact at a hard court Grand Slam. While Thiem has made the final of two French Opens, his best finish at an Australian or US Open is the Quarter-Finals. Could Melbourne provide the launchpad for the 26-year old's career to reach the next level?

Best Of The Other Mens Contenders: Australian Open 2020

This time last year, it was Alexander Zverev (30/1 who was being tipped for a landmark 2019 after triumphing at the 2018 ATP Finals. The German couldn't quite carry over that form into the new year, but he did record a career-best Fourth Round finish at the Australian Open. Can the world number seven progress further this time out?

And finally... he couldn't, could he? The 2019 Australian Open proved a memorable one for three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray, for the wrong reasons. Murray bid an emotional farewell after his first-round exit, fearing injuries would prevent him from playing again. But a year later, the Scotsman is back, and after winning the 2019 European Open to cap a remarkable comeback, will be in the hunt.

The eyes of the sporting world will be trained on Melbourne Park for a fantastic festival of tennis. Which man can overcome unpredictable match scheduling, sweltering temperatures and a talent-packed field to take 2020's first Grand Slam?
