Australian Open with Bet365                           


One of the biggest sporting events is due to commence from Monday 16th January and Bet365 have your covered. This will be the very first Grand Slam tournament for 2017 and it is the 105th Australian Open to take place. Will a home-grown player come out victorious or will they fall at the first hurdle? Can Sir Andy Murray end his Aussie anguish?

Qualifying has been taking place since Wednesday 11th January, but Monday the 16th is when the fun starts. If you’re looking to cheer on and back British talent, we have some bad news for you; sadly, former number 27 Laura Robson suffered an injury during qualifying and exited round one of the qualifying before she could get any further. The good news is we still have eight British players still in the game, including; Sir Andy Murray for the men’s singles and Naomi Broady for the women’s singles.

Odd choice

Novak Djokovic was last year’s Mens’ Singles Champion and he’s a favourite to win it yet again, with current odds of 11/8. This super-talented player is expected to win the tournament for a 6th time – this would mean he’s done it three years in a row, so will he be your player of choice?

Sir Andy Murray is currently offering odds of 13/8 and despite his newfound number 1 ranking in the tennis industry, he is set to finish behind Novak Djokovic. Sir Murray has had a great run recently, so do you think he will become victorious? He started his career in 2005 and has won 634 matches to date. He is set to play Illya Marchenko in the first round, the Ukrainian who is ranked 93. Marchenko turned pro in 2006 and has won 57 matches – but can he topple Murray?

Serena Williams is without doubt the favourite to scoop the Women’s Singles trophy. In the last 5 years in the Australian Open, she has bagged 4 of the winning trophies, but last year she missed out when Angelique Kerber pipped her to the post. Williams currently offers odds of 5/2 with Kerber offering odds of 7/2.
