Australian Open Outright Winner Tips

The first Grand Slam of the 2024 tennis season, the Australian Open, begins at Melbourne Park on Sunday, January 14th, and both the men's and women's tournaments look more open than previous years.

Bet on the Australian Open

Novak Djokovic and Serbia crashed out of the United Cup quarter-finals with the world no.1 hampered by a wrist problem so the ten-time champion has something to prove, while his main challenger Carlos Alcaraz finished the 2023 season in poor form.

Legendary Spaniard Rafael Nadal is back for another crack at a third Melbourne title while Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev will both fancy their chances of going far down under.

In the women's event, Iga Swiatek is still the one to beat but defending champion Aryna Sabalenka, last year's finalist Elena Rybakina and US Open champion Coco Gauff are also all on offer at single-figure odds.

Tip 1 - Jannik Sinner to win men's Australian Open @ 11/2


It would be foolish to read too much into Novak Djokovic's injury but, if there are any chinks in his armour, that could open the door for Jannik Sinner to claim the first of what could be a number of Grand Slam titles.

Sinner's career has needed some time to really take off with the Italian favouring incremental improvements over immediate success, but that time spent honing his craft is really starting to pay dividends and he could realise his Grand Slam dreams in Melbourne.

After producing his best Grand Slam finish to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals, Sinner won titles in Canada, China and Vienna then he signed off the 2023 campaign by leading Italy to victory in the Davis Cup, beating Djokovic on the way.

That coming-of-age performance pointed to a big 2024 season for the 22-year-old, who looks a solid alternative to the top two in the market.

Tip 2 - Aryna Sabalenka to win women's Australian Open @4/1


The women's Australian Open is an interesting betting heat but it could pay to back lightning to strike twice with 2023 champion Aryna Sabalenka taken to mount a successful title defence.

Sabalenka claimed her first Grand Slam title in Melbourne a year ago, then she reached the semi-finals of both the French Open and Wimbledon before losing out to Coco Gauff in the final of the US Open.

Once a temperamental performer, the Belarusian has proven herself on the biggest stages on numerous occasions and there is no doubt that she's well suited to the quick courts she'll again encounter at Melbourne Park.

Tip 3 - Jessica Pegula to win women's Australian Open @12/1


If there is to be a first-time winner of the women's title, Jessica Pegula is surely one of the standout candidates.

The American has become known for her inability to progress beyond the quarter-finals of Grand Slams, having fallen at the last-eight stage on six occasions since the start of 2021.

However, 2023 was arguably her best season to date as she returned to her career-high third in the world rankings and claimed titles in Montreal and Seoul before reaching the final of the WTA Finals.

In 2022, Pegula won just three of 15 matches against fellow top-ten players but she improved massively on that record last season, winning nine of 14 such matches to demonstrate her newly found self-belief. That suggests a Grand Slam title is not beyond her.
