Australian Open 2020 Predictions & Preview
The men’s singles event sees defending champion Novak Djokovic the 6/5 favourite to successfully defend his title and claim what would be an astonishing eighth Australian Open title.

So, who will win the Australian Open 2020?
Rafael Nadal is expected to be Djokovic’s main challenger, but the champion has already beaten his long-time rival this year when representing Serbia against Spain in the final of the inaugural ATP Cup. Djokovic won 6-2 7-6 (7-4) just a week prior to the start of the season’s opening Grand Slam event.
Djokovic is a 6/5 bet with Coral for the title, with Nadal at 9/2 with Betfair. The 38 year-old Swiss legend Roger Federer has drifted out to 11/1 with Coral, with Russia’s Daniil Medvedev the 8/1 third favourite on the back of his appearance at the US Open 2019 final, where he took Nadal to five sets.
Stefanos Tsitsipas is another of the younger generation who is a potential threat at 16/1 with 888Sport.
The women’s singles looks far more open, with upwards of 20 players probably going into the tournament believing they have a realistic chance of winning it.
The 38 year-old Serena Williams is the favourite and she did win her first tournament as a mother just a couple of weeks back. Williams, a seven-time Australian Open champion, is 17/4 with 888Sport, with top seed and the big Australian hope Ashleigh Barty at 8/1 with bet365*, alongside defending champion Naomi Osaka at the same odds with BetVictor.
Petra Kvitova was a beaten finalist last year and at 22/1 with 888Sport, she could also provide some each-way betting value.
Elina Svitolina is another consistent performer who will have her backers at 28/1 with BoyleSports.
