2019 Australian Open Tips

The Australian Open will see Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic bid to win a record seventh title in Melbourne with the former the defending champion. Defending champion Caroline Wozniacki, meanwhile, will be among the leading contenders in the women's singles.


Tennis continues to be one of the most popular sports to bet on online, with every Grand Slam tournament, ATP event and WTA competition receiving plenty of coverage from the world’s leading bookmakers – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This can be on your PC, tablet or mobile device.

While the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer dominate the outright betting in every ATP tournament they enter, that does not mean there aren’t some lucrative odds for punters to get their hands on. And the same goes for the women’s side of the sport, with Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka among the stars of the show.

Those lucrative odds come in the form of different markets for every ATP and WTA Tour match taking place. Go beyond the traditional match betting and you will find a raft of options, meaning there is money to be made.

Set betting is incredibly popular because it can offer value that can be missing when betting on the match result itself. For example, backing Novak Djokovic to win a match will not give you much of a return unless he is facing one of the top four, but betting on him to win 2-1, for example, could bring the value. Set Handicap, Total Sets and To Win 1st set are other markets that tennis enthusiasts can exploit, so betting on this sport is never dull.

And the leading bookmakers - including bet365 - are now offering live in-play betting on a daily basis. No longer are you restricted to betting on the match before the opening serve, you can now wait and see how the match starts to unfold before placing your bet. Bet on who will take the next set or who will win the next point. And what if the pre-match favourite drops the first set? With in-play betting you could find more favourable odds for your man that perhaps were not there before the two players took to the court.

Tennis is also proving popular with the bookmakers who like to offer money back specials on a routine basis. Several bookmakers offer cashback specials for ATP Tour and WTA Tour events, while the Grand Slam tournaments tend to receive special attention. What better security blanket can there be than a bookie pledging to refund losing outright bets if one of the big guns wins the tournament?
