Odds to Win the 2020 Australian Open: Djokovic and Serena in Pole Spots

Australian Open Betting Odds

The 2020 Australian Open is just around the corner and it’s never too early to start considering which players you should be looking to take as part of your futures bets. The Australian Open kicks off on January 20, 2020, with the draw expected to be released January 10.

Men's Australian Open Odds

It’s no surprise to see online sportsbook Bovada set Novak Djokovic as the early favorite at +150 with Rafael Nadal next in line at +300. Rising star Daniil Medvedev (+600) sits ahead of Roger Federer (+700) with Stefanos Tsitsipas (+1600), Dominic Thiem (+1600), and Andy Murray (+2000) rounding out the top 10.

Can Novak Reign Supreme?

The last time a man not named Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer took down this tournament was 2014 when Stan Wawrinka was crowned champion. Before that, it was Rafael Nadal in 2009. But since 2006, both Federer and Djokovic have dominated this event. Novak has seven Aussie Open titles to Roger’s six, with the Joker winning the 2019 competition after defeating Nadal in straight sets.

Novak is in the hunt for most Grand Slam titles. He currently sits at 16, behind Nadal (19), with Federer leading the way at 20. Clinching the Australian Open title will put him one step closer to at least tying the score with Nadal.

Health is Key for Nadal's Aussie Open Bid

If Nadal can come into the tournament fully healthy, then he has a pretty good chance to be a contender for the title. He’s been so close to winning the Australian Open in the last couple of years but has fallen just short. In 2017 he lost to Federer in the final and then in 2018, he was forced to retire from an injury he sustained during his quarterfinal match against Marin Čilić.

Federer's Luck May be Running Out

For Federer, unfortunately, the top-tier players should all be healthy and in attendance, much like they were before he won in his 2017 comeback year. This is significant because Novak and Nadal could be the only players preventing Federer from winning or even reaching the final.

The odds are sure to change after the ATP Finals in London and once prelim events pick up in January so make sure to check back when the draw is released.

Women's Australian Open Odds

On the women’s side, although Naomi Osaka is the incumbent champion, she is +900 to win this time around with Serena Williams the favorite at +500. Rising Canadian superstar Bianca Andreescu (+600), Simona Halep (+900), Belinda Bencic (+1600), and Petra Kvitová (+1600) are also near the top of the odds board.

A New Women’s Champ in 2020?

Things have been a lot less clear cut on the women’s side with a different champ named in each of the last four Aussie Open tournaments. 22-year-old Naomi Osaka won the 2019 tournament, defeating Petra Kvitová after shocking the tennis world in a surprise and controversial win over Serena Williams in the 2018 US Open final.

Serena Still in Search of 24th Grand Slam

Serena Williams last won the Australian Open in 2017 after defeating her sister, Venus, in straight sets in the final. As the early favorite, she holds seven AO titles and 13 Grand Slam singles titles on hard courts. Currently ranked 10th in WTA rankings, Serena has played a bit of a light schedule in 2019, participating in only eight tournaments – including the Australian Open – where she was eliminated in the quarterfinals by Karolina Pliskova.

Andreescu Looks to Continue Her Ascent 

19-year-old budding superstar Biana Andreescu only turned pro in 2017 but she's already seen massive success. In 2019 she rose to fifth in the world rankings, winning three WTA titles, defeating Serena in the finals of both the Rogers Cup and US Open.

Osaka a Darkhorse to Repeat in Melbourne

Fan-favorite Naomi Osaka will be looking to repeat her 2019 Aussie Open success. She entered the 2019 tournament as the fourth seed and one of eleven players in contention for the world No. 1 ranking. In October, Osaka announced that she would be giving up her U.S. citizenship to represent Japan in the Summer Olympics next year in Tokyo.

More recently, Osaka defeated Ashleigh Barty, the top-ranked player in the world, in the final of the China Open in Beijing, a victory that helped her climb back to No. 3 in the WTA rankings.
