Australian Open winner odds 2022 have been set. The first Grand Slam of the tennis year starts on Monday, January 17 and runs until the finals on Sunday January 30, at Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia.

The tournament was first played in 1905 in Melbourne and it was known as the Australasian Championships. It first became considered a ‘major’ championship in 1924. Then, it changed its name to the Australian Open until 1969.

Since its growth as a major tennis competition, some of the world’s best have lifted the Norman Brookes Trophy in recent years. Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic has won the most men’s singles titles in the competition. He lifted his ninth title in the 2021 edition of the competition. For the women’s singles, former great Serena Williams holds the title for most wins. The US star won the tournament seven times between 2003 and 2017.

With the 2022 Australian Open set to get underway, we look at some of the favourites for this year’s competition. We also highlight some of the Australian Open winner odds 2022 for the men’s and women’s competitions.

Odds as at 5pm January 13th 2022. Odds may now differ

Firstly, the Australian Open winner odds 2022 for the men’s singles show reigning champion Novak Djokovic as the clear favourite. The Serbian has won the title for three consecutive seasons and he defeated challenger Daniil Medvedev to reclaim his title in 2021. As a result, current Novak Djokovic Australian Open winner odds place the Serbian in a strong position. Bet365 are listing Djokovic at 2.50 to lift the Norman Brookes Trophy once more in 2022. That of course depends on whether he plays. At time of writing, Djokovic will play. But it seems, as they say, a very fluid situation.

Last year’s finalist, Daniil Medvedev is close behind Djokovic in the Australian Open winner odds. Medvedev lost in straight sets to Djokovic during the 2021 final, but the Russian enjoyed a successful 2021 season that could play in his favour. Medvedev won the US Open in September when he defeated Djokovic in straight sets. As a result, the Russian star has odds of 2.50 to win the Australian Open this year.

German Alexander Zverev was in excellent form during the 2020 season, particularly in the majors. Zverev reached the semifinals of the Australian Open in 2020 before facing-off with Dominic Thiem in a five-set thriller in the US Open final. The 24-year-old then won six ATP Tour championships in 2021, but he couldn’t progress past the semi-finals in any of the majors. At 4.0 odds, Bet 365 have placed Zverev among the leaders of the pack to challenge Djokovic or Medvedev this year.

Rafael Nadal’s Australian Open winner odds for the 2022 tournament have the Spaniard as a slight outsider. Nadal returns to action for the first time since a foot injury ended his 2021 season. However, the Spanish veteran did play in the 2021 Australian Open, but was eliminated by Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter finals. Nadal’s last Australian Open final was in 2019, when he lost in straight sets to Djokovic. The 35-year-old also hasn’t won the competition since 2009. Currently, Rafael Nadal Australian Open winner odds are at 9.0.

There are some players in the men’s singles category worth keeping track of before the Australian Open gets started. World number four Stefanos Tsitsipas had an impressive 2021 season, where he reached the Australian Open semi-finals, losing to Danil Medvedev. But, the Greek player improved and got through to his first major final at the French Open, eventually losing to Djokovic. The 23-year old will hope to return to form after elimination in round one and round three at Wimbledon and the US Open. Due to his inconsistency, bet365 have posted odds of 21.0 for a Tsitsipas open win.

Aged 20, Jannik Sinner is another up and coming outsider looking to break onto the scene. The Italian had a successful 2021 season, winning three ATP events. But the young player did not fare as well in major tournaments. He was eliminated in the first round at Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Although, he did reach round four at the US and French Opens. Sinner will be hoping to improve on his best-ever major position, when he reached the quarter finals in 2021 at the French Open. At 21.0 odds, the bookmakers show the Italian could pose some threat to the experienced players.

Veteran British player Andy Murray will play in his first Australian Open since 2019, when he was eliminated in the first round. Injury problems and inconsistent form have limited Murray’s progress in recent years. His best major finish since 2017 was a third round place at Wimbledon in 2021. The bookmakers reflect Murray’s problems in their odds, placing him at 81.0 to win the Australian Open.

Despite having a home advantage, Nick Kyrgios has struggled at the Australian Open. He reached the fourth round in 2018 and 2020, but has never bettered this position at any major. Odds of 126.0 for Kyrgios to win the Australian Open show he is an unlikely challenger this season.

Grigor Dimitrov is another long-shot amongst the bookmakers. The Bulgarian number 24 reached the quarter finals in 2021 and 2018. But he has not been able to improve on his semi-final run since 2017. With no finals and a lack of progression, Dimitrov has been given long odds of 150.0 to win the Australian Open.

Odds as at 5pm January 13th 2022. Odds may now differ

Australian Open winner odds 2022 for the women’s singles, world number Ashleigh Barty is ranked as the pre-tournament favourite. She has held the number one status since 2019 when she won her first major, the French Open.

In 2020, the Australian star reached the semi final in Melbourne before losing to eventual winner, Sofia Kenin. Barty bounced back in 2021 with an impressive season. She reached the Australian Open quarter finals and won Wimbledon for the first time, beating Karolína Plíšková. Ashleigh Barty Australian Open winner odds have the world number one at 3.50 to lift her third major title.

Naomi Osaka Australian Open winner odds are likewise relatively short, showing how she could be a key challenger for Barty. Osaka has won a major tournament every year since 2018 and she has also been victorious at the Australian Open, winning in Melbourne in 2021 and 2019. However, Osaka’s eliminations in the second and third rounds at the French and US Opens saw the US star drop to 14th in the world rankings. At odds of 7.0, the US star could return to form in Melbourne.

Spanish player Garbine Muguruza is another potential challenger. Despite a below-par 2021 season, with two major fourth round eliminations and a first round exit at the French Open, Muguruza is still ranked third in the world. The 28-year-old has major pedigree, winning Wimbledon in 2017 and the French Open in 2016. But, her final appearance at the 2020 Australian Open was her only final in the last four years. Still, the bookmakers have fairly low odds for Muguruza to perform well this year as she is backed at 11.0.

Aged 20, Iga Swiatek has broken on to the women’s singles scene in recent years. In 2020, she took the French Open by storm when she beat Sofia Kenin 6-4, 6-1 at Roland Garros. The world number eight had another solid 2021 season. The Polish player recorded three fourth round finishes and reached the quarter finals of the French Open. At 11.0 odds, Swiatek has potential to challenge at the Australian Open this year.

Estonian world number seven Anett Kontaveit has performed consistently over the past six seasons, missing just one major tournament since 2016. Despite regular third round finishes at the majors, Kontaveit has only reached one quarter final. Her best finish came at the Australian Open in 2020, when she was eliminated in Melbourne by Simona Halep. Yet, at 13.0 Australian Open womens winner odds, there are signs that Kontaveit could go further in 2022.

Simona Halep Australian Open winner odds are also placed at 13.0 for the 2022 Australian Open. Halep reached the quarter finals of the competition in 2021 and lost to veteran Serena Williams. The Romanian number 15 also got through to the semi-finals in 2020, but lost 7-6, 7-5 to Garbiñe Muguruza. However, Halep’s last major win came at Wimbledon in 2019. Since then, she has not reached a major final, showing why Simona Halep Australian Open winner odds have her as a relative outsider.

There are some dangerous players among the outsiders that could cause an upset at the Australian Open. 32-year old Victoria Azarenka has struggled for consistency in recent years. The world number 25 has reached just one major final in her last five tournaments. 2021 was also a challenging year for the Belarus player, where a fourth round finish at the French Open was her best place. As a result, the bookmakers have Azarenka at 26.0 to win this year’s Australian Open.

At 51.0, Angelique Kerber is another outsider, despite reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals last season. Kerber also won the Australian Open in 2016, but she has not reached a major finals since winning Wimbledon in 2018.

Petra Kvitova also has 51.0 odds for the Open. A best-placed third round at the US Open capped a disappointing 2021 for the world number 21. However, Kvitova has a good record in Melbourne as she reached the final in 2019 and the quarter finals in 2020.
