The first tennis Grand Slam of the season takes place early on in the year with the winner of the Australian Open being crowned at the end of January. The tournament dates all the way back to 1905 when it was a grass court event and it remained that way right the way until 1987 when it switched to the hard court surface.

2021 Australian Open
The 2021 Australian Open is scheduled to take place between February 8 and 21. It will be the first Grand Slam of the year and will see Novak Djokovic and Sofia Kenin attempting to successfully defend the titles they won in January of last year.
Djokovic has won the Australian Open for the past two years and four of the last six. He now has a record eight Australian Open titles, two more than any other player. This is the Grand Slam that Rafael Nadal struggles to win, perhaps he doesn't like playing in January. His only win in this tournament was in 2009 and since then he has been beaten in the final four times. Roger Federer has won this title on six occasions, his last win being in 2018. With him having recently had surgery on his right knee, he won't be playing this year. Andy Murray has a knighthood but it wasn't given to him for winning the Australian Open. He's still waiting for his first title and has lost five finals. Murray is another absentee and Britain's highest ranked player is world number 26 Dan Evans, fresh from winning his first ATP title.
The last five Women's Singles tournaments have all produced different winners. The current champion is Sofia Kenin who won her first and so far only Grand Slam tournament in January of this year. The last woman to retain the Australian Open title was Victoria Azarenka who won the title in 2012 and 2013. Serena Williams has won this title on seven occasions but not since 2017 when beating her sister Venus in the final. The last four finals have been contested by eight different players, so this is one of the most difficult tournaments to predict when it comes to the Women's Singles, not that it is ever easy.

What should I use my Australian Open bet on?
Unsurprisingly all of the talk in the betting in the build-up to the tournament will be over who will be crowned the men’s and ladies’ singles champions come the end of the fortnight. With just a very few players that are likely to win the tournament the odds are always pretty short for the top three men and women. There has even been the occasional odds-on player before a ball has even been struck at Melbourne Park.
The individual matches are also popular markets but if you thought the odds were skinny in the outright market then you will be shocked by the prices for the one-on-one clashes. If you fancy backing one of the big names in the early rounds then you could be looking at 1/100 and it will take a fairly lengthy accumulator before it becomes profitable.
