The 2017 Australian was a tremendous tournament and a great way to start the new tennis season. It was full of shocks, with Novak Djokovic being eliminated in the second round of the men’s singles and Andy Murray following suit by being knocked out in the fourth round by Mischa Zverev. Two crowd favourites progressed to the men’s final and it was an epic occasion, with Roger Federer defeating Rafael Nadal in five sets.
The women’s singles also produced a surprise in that not just one but both Williams sisters made it to the final. It was nothing new to see Serena in the final of the Australian Open, having participated in the previous two, winning one but for Venus, this was the first Australian Open final of her career and first Grand Slam final since Wimbledon 2009. Much like the men’s final, the women’s final had a special feeling to it and Serena came out on top, as many predicted, winning in straight sets.

2. Potential Winners of 2018 Australian Open
Despite their failure to reach the latter stages of the tournament in 2017, both Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are the favorites to win the 2018 Australian Open. Djokovic comes in priced at 7/4, with Andy Murray slightly further out at 2/1. The losing finalist of 2017, Rafael Nadal has been installed at 11/1, with the defending champion, Roger Federer available at 12/1. In truth, there are no breakthrough names in the top six but having reached the second Grand Slam final of his career in Melbourne, Gregor Dimitrov makes for an interesting bet at 16/1 with Bet365. Don’t forget, you can watch all the great men’s singles matches at the 2018 Australian Open thanks to the brilliant live streaming service offered by Bet365.

In the women’s draw, it comes as little surprise to see Serena Williams installed as the early favorite at 9/4 with Bet365. The American legend will be 36 years old by the time the 2018 Australian Open starts but given her performance in 2017, you cannot write her off. Her sister, Venus, is much less fancied and can be backed at 25/1 to win the 2018 Australian Open. Other contenders include the returning Maria Sharapova, who comes in at 8/1 and Angelique Kerber, who is available at 11/2. There will be much interest surrounding Sharapova, having won the event in 2008 and reached the final on three other occasions. Can she go all the way again in 2018?
