Australian Open Tennis Betting Guide 2014
The Australian Open Tennis in Melbourne is always a great way to start the year and this year's tournament is looking like a potential classic. Novak Djokovic is the defending champion and world number one and is the warm favourite in the Australian Open Tennis Odds. Djokovic will have to hold off the usual challenge from Andy Murray with the Scot looking to win his third slam after he won Wimbledon last season.
The ladies side of the draw looks set to be dominated by Serena Williams who has been in awesome form over the past six months and is the one to beat here. The defending champion is Victoria Azarenka and she will be eager to defend her title in Melbourne in 2013.
The Australian Open Venue of Melbourne Park is truly State of the Art and facilities include retractable roofs allowing play to be continuous no matter what the weather. The weather is usually good anyway, with the Tournament falling in the middle of Australia’s summer. In 2011 a new surface was introduced known as plexi-cushion that has better heat retention allowing for truer bounce.
Mens and Ladies Singles 2014
The main features of the Tournament will be the Mens and Ladies singles and the results of past Tournaments demonstrate that only the very best players in the world usually win. The Australian Open Roll of Honour has a wonderful list of past and present Champions which includes some of the great names of tennis history.
Current Champions are Novak Djokovic who reigned supreme down under in 2011 defeating Andy Murray in the final, while the Ladies Champion is Kim Clijsters, who won last year when defeating Li Na in the final. Winners are presented with the Norman Brooks Trophy for the men and the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup for the ladies.
Djokovic had a wonderful 2011 in winning three of the four Grand Slams and if he can pick up the Australian open in January he will be the top dog once again. The Serb has proven too good and too fit when on his best form and he will be desperate to win the title in Melbourne for the third time.
