There’s no chance of seeing a repeat of last year’s historic final when Djokavic beat Rafael Nadal in the longest Grand Slam final in the Open era. Nadal has not played since the second round of Wimbledon in June and the injured knee, which has plagued his career since 2007, is not strong enough to withstand the grueling demands of the five-set matches at the Australian Open.
Triple Australian Open champion Djokovic is the number one seed and clear favourite to win his fourth Mens Singles ($2.10 at Luxbet). He warmed up by guiding Serbia to victory in the Hopman Cup in Perth last week although he suffered a defeat against Bernard Tomic in Serbia’s 2-1 win against Australia.
UK number one Andy Murray won his first Grand Slam at the US Open in September to crown a memorable year in which he won gold in the Mens Singles at the London Olympics. The 25-year-old Scot is looking to build on his 2012 success and won the Brisbane title in preparation for next week’s Grand Slam. The Brit has a good record in Melbourne where he has finished runner up twice and Luxbet offer $3.85 Murray to make this a winning visit.
Roger Federer arrives in Australia having not played a competitive match for over two months. The Swiss Maestro has won this title four times in the past and while doubters have been trying to write him off over the last two years, he showed when winning Wimbledon 2012 that there’s still life in the old legs. At 31-years-old, the game won’t be getting easier, but Federer won’t mind that he’s not rated as high as once was by bookmakers ($5.25 at Luxbet) in fact he relish the challenge of being underdog.
Here’s what 17-time Grand Slammer thinks about his poistion in the betting market. “If I’m second favourite, fourth favourite or eighth or whatever it might be it doesn’t change much for me.
“I know if I’m playing well I can win tournaments. I love the pressure of playing the new generation who are coming up and improving quickly and I have to work harder than to stay at the top, or with the best.
“Longevity is the word here that I am looking for and that is what I am striving for this year in 2013 to hopefully keep on playing for many years.”
