This year’s winners 

In the men’s final, BetMGM has Novak Djokovic as the formidable favourite to clinch the title and the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup this year, at evens. In the past decade, Djokovic has claimed the cup six times.  Notably, Carlos Alcaraz is the second favourite, at 16/5.  

In the women’s finals, the impressive Iga Swiatek is the top pick to secure the title and the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup this year, priced at 9/4. Following her is the talented Rybakina, Elena at 9/2.  

 

This year’s British players 

This year’s Brits bring excitement and determination to the courts. In the men’s category, Cam Norrie stands at 150/1. The experienced Andy Murray, facing odds of 250/1, carries the hopes of fans eager to see his resilience, and Dan Evans at 500/1. In the women’s category, Emma Raducanu, with odds of 70/1, hopes to bring home her second Grand Slam, while Katie Boulter, who is looking to build on a career-best season in 2023, is priced at 700/1.  

 

Mother’s returning to the court 

Melbourne Park will see the comeback of three former number ones who are returning to the Grand Slam court after becoming mums —two-time winner Naomi Osaka at 25/1, 2018 winner Caroline Wozniacki at 250/1, and 2016 champion Angelique Kerber at 250/1.  

 

Commenting on the Australian Open, UK Director at BetMGM, Sam Behar, said: “Tennis is one of our most important sports markets, and the Australian Open always kicks off the year in style – we’re in for a treat over the next couple of weeks with top-class action in store. We’ve got Novak Djokovic to extend his record number of wins, with Carlos Alcaraz his main challenger for the men’s title, with Iga Swiatek and Elena Rybakina battling for the women’s prize. For any of our customers feeling particularly patriotic, we’ve got Emma Raducanu at 70/1 to win a second Grand Slam, Cameron Norrie at 150/1 to pull off a major shock… or what about Andy Murray staging the ultimate comeback at 250/1?”
