3. Australian Open 2023 Winner Prediction
We have Australian Open tennis betting picks for the winner of both the men’s and women’s singles. We begin with our Australian Open 2023 betting prediction for the men’s singles. However, don't forget to learn important knowledge from our guide to comparing tennis 1x2 betting odds which will surely help you to reach the maximum value for your bets.
3.1 Men's Singles
The 2022 Australian Open men’s singles was played under a cloud following Novak Djokovic's battle with Australian immigration. That should not be a problem in 2023 and the Serbian will enter the competition as the favourite to win the men’s singles with Bet365. Djokovic had won all three previous Australian Open titles prior to his absence last year. That alone is enough to make him a favourite in 2023.
I really want to go there, I am over what happened this year and I just want to play tennis, it is what I do best. Australia has always been the place where I have played my best tennis, the results speak for themselves, so I am always extra motivated to go there.
Rafael Nadal is the defending champion but question marks remain over the Spaniard's fitness. If he is injury-free going into the tournament, Nadal must be considered a favourite to reach the final. Current world number one, 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz will enter the Australian Open on a high following his success at the US Open. Alcaraz has proven he has what it takes to win the big titles but will he suffer from the first grand slam lull that has hit other players?
Casper Ruud is an interesting Australian Open winner prediction as he looks to bounce back from his US Open final defeat. If it were not for Alcaraz, the Norwegian would be world number one and his huge odds at Unibet makes a great AO winner prediction. Daniil Medvedev reached the previous two Australian Open finals but had surgery last year and at a fair price with William Hill, the odds seem a little short. Jannik Sinner is another player to watch and he is on tempting offer with Bet365.

3.2 Women's Singles
Moving on to our women’s singles Australian Open 2023 predictions and Iga Swiatek is the favourite with William Hill. The Pole reached the semi-final of the Australian Open last year and will be disappointed to have lost against Danielle Collins. However, Swiatek bounced back in style to win both the French Open and US Open, making the world's number one clear favourite in our Australian Open tennis betting picks.
Ons Jabeur reached two finals last year but lost and will be hoping to go one better in 2023, beginning with the Australian Open. The Tunisian lost in the round-robin stage of the WTA Finals and her current odds at Unibet do not represent great value.
There is a cloud hanging over Simona Halep following a positive test for the banned substance roxadustat at the 2022 US Open. It is difficult to make a compelling case for backing any player to beat Swiatek, who has been the most consistent player on the WTA Tour having posted a record win/loss of 67-9 in 2022. That is the most wins in a season since Serena Williams in 2013.
