Australian Open Odds

Marking the beginning of the Grand Slam season, the Australian Open is a tennis tournament based in Melbourne Park, Australia. This tournament attracts some of the greatest talents in the tennis world, including names such as Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Steffi Graf.

Starting in 1905, the competition has seen some great talent gracing the courts, and history has been made across both the men's and women's singles. Initially, the tournament was known as the Australian Championship, but it soon changed its name in 1969.

Currently, the Australian Open uses a knockout format, where the unseeded players are placed across the fixtures whilst seeded players are drawn randomly. The top two ranked players participating will be positioned on opposite sides of the tournament structure. This is done to ensure that these players do not meet each other until the final if they are both successful in making it there.
