2021 Australian Open Odds

The tournament is right around the corner and it’s never too early to look at Australian Open odds. With many big names attending, anything could happen. We’ll assess the odds and take a look at who might win the Men’s and Women’s tournaments.

Odds to win Men’s 2021 title

Djokovic to win the Australian Open odds are hot! He’s on for four wins in his last 6 tournaments at Melbourne Park. It’s quite an unbelievable feat, but the oddsmakers fancy him as firm favorites. Aside from the endless lists of Djokovic odds for the Australian Open, bookmakers also back some of the younger generations of tennis superstars to put up some stiff competition.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev will certainly raise a few eyebrows, as young players with a certain point to prove and a reputation to build. The clay-court champion Rafael Nadal will certainly look to stop the Serb, but having only won it once over almost a decade ago, it’s not favorable. Local boy Nick Kyrigios will certainly have a thing or two to say as the local lad, but will he be able to play the tennis of a champion on the court? One remains skeptical on this point.

Odds to win the Women’s 2021 title

Naomi Osaka has already claimed a title here and opens as the favorite to claim her second Australian Open title. With 3 Grand Slam titles to her name already, it’s no wonder the 23-year old is favored in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

Serena Williams will be bidding to win her 24th Grand Slam title, which, incidentally, will be her 8th Australian Open title. She has shown that age doesn’t matter and this incredible athlete continues to prove people wrong. Among the other hopefuls is the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka, who stands at 6 feet tall and has shown to be an intelligent player for a 22-year old. She steps in alongside Ashleigh Barty as the second favorite. Just behind the front runners is Iga Swiatek who managed to claim her first title at the French Open 2020 towards the end of last year.
