Australian Open Betting 2019 - Tennis Betting Tips and News
The first Grand Slam of the year – the Australian Open 2019 - will take place from January 14 to January 27, 2019. All matches will be played at Melbourne Park - the home of the tournament since 1988 when the competition moved from Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club (also in Melbourne).
Since its launch in 1905, the Australian Open has been staged in 5 cities across Australia and in 2 cities in New Zealand. In 1972 all games were moved to Melbourne as the city undoubtedly attracts the most fans of tennis. The tournament was initially called the Australasian Championships, but in 1927 the name was changed to the Australian Championships. In 1969 it was once again renamed - this time as the Australian Open.
The biggest matches usually take place at the Rod Laver Arena and just like the US Open, the Australian Open is played on hard courts.

Roger Federer won both the 2017 and 2018 editions of the Australian Open. The Swiss are returning to Grand Slam action after a knee injury forced him to take a year off. Federer defeated his long-time rival Rafael Nadal 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 in 2017 final. It was not any different for Federer in 2018, but this time it was against the talented Croatian, Marin Cilic, who pushed the Swiss maestro to five sets. This was Federer’s sixth Australian Open title, putting him level with Roy Emerson and fierce rival Novak Djokovic for a number of Australian Opens won. 10CRIC provides a great variety of tennis betting odds and options for outrights.
Danish star Caroline Wozniacki is the defending women’s champion after she beat then-World No. 1 Simona Halep 7-6, 3-6, 6-4 in 2018 final. While Wozniacki became the planet’s top player after this win, Halep is currently the world No. 1. while Wozniacki has dropped to No. 3 since the win, making way for German star Angelique Kerber in the number two spot.
Australian Open – ATP Betting, Odds and News
We could be in for a feast of thrilling clashes at this year's tournament as the biggest names in tennis are looking to win the first Grand Slam of the year. The order of play and the seeds are yet to be announced, but the entire tennis betting enthusiasts will be hoping for another classic: Federer-Nadal clash. Both players of this pair are arguably the best tennis players of the current era and everyone expects them to give their all to grab yet another Grand Slam title.
There are two other big names to watch for - you can never rule out Novak Djokovic and world No. 4 Juan Martin Del Potro. The Argentinian has had his share of injuries over the last few years and back in October 2018 he once again had to take a break from the game, after suffering tendon patella damage at the Shanghai Masters. But if his rehabilitation goes well, he could be fully recovered just in time for the Australian Open.
The clashes between the top 8 players, including Alexander Zverev, Cilic, Dominic Thiem and Kevin Anderson, will also be worth watching out for and place a bet. There could be a shock in store this time with talent like Cilic, Kei Nishikori or even Hyeon Chung, who beat the 6-time champion Djokovic at the 2018 Australian Open, in with a chance of going all the way or at least causing an upset. So what are you waiting for? Place today your Australian Open ATP Bet and Win!
Australian Open – WTA Betting, Odds and News
Women's tennis WTA has always been unpredictable and there could be more surprises coming our way in January. This gives you the perfect chance for betting! You can predict the grand surprise and win from WTA betting. While Serena Williams has dominated the game over the last half-decade, she is not yet back to her almost-unbeatable best, when she returned to the game after giving birth to her daughter. However, Serena proved she is still among the top players on the circuit when she made it to the 2018 US Open final, only to lose to Japan’s Naomi Osaka. The US star will be one of the hot favourites to clinch her 8th Australian Open title, while Simona Halep is on a roll after winning her maiden Grand Slam at the 2018 French Open, when she beat American Sloane Stephens 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the final. Stephens has garnered a lot of attention over the last couple of years, especially after she beat Serena in the Australian Open in 2013 when she was just 19 years of age. Four years later, she won her maiden Grand Slam - the US Open - beating fellow American Madison Keys in the final.
Another all-American clash between Serena and Stephens will be an interesting one to place your bet on. The duo does not have a particularly good relationship off the court, which would add spice to the match. Spain’s Garbine Muguruza will be another threat to consider. She beat Serena in the 2016 French Open final and the following year defeated Serena's sister Venus to win her first Wimbledon title. The likes of Petra Kvitova, Jelena Ostapenko and even Maria Sharapova, who returned to action recently following a two-year ban, could turn out to be underdogs with the ability to go all the way.

Australian Open 2019 Doubles - Betting, Odds and News
As far as the men's doubles are concerned, few pundits expected 7 seeded Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic to clinch the 2018 title, even though they beat Americans Bob and Mike Bryan in the semi-finals. The Bryan brothers have a total of 236 doubles titles between them and will once again be hot favourites to win the competition this time around. However, they have not won the Australian Open since their 2013 triumph, this opens a great chance for betting.
The Hungarian-French pair of Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic defeated No. 2 seeds Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina – both from Russia – in the women’s doubles final at the Australian Open in 2018. They had also knocked out No. 1 seeds Latisha Chan and Andrea Sestini Hlavackova in the quarter-finals. It will be interesting to see how the players pair up for this edition of the tournament. The betting odds are really great for the Russian duo.
Finally, coming to the mixed doubles, men's doubles winner Pavic teamed up with Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski to beat Babos and Indian star Rohan Bopanna in 2018 final in Melbourne. Although it’s the lowest-profile Grand Slam event, the mixed doubles finals always provide an enjoyable end to each tournament and it will be fascinating to see which couples make it through to 2019 final in Melbourne.
