Sportsbet Ease Fifth Set Frustration With Australian Open Refund
January 14, 2014
With the number of Australian Open Men’s Singles matches decided in the fifth set entering double figures after just two days, plenty of punters are already aware of the frustration of seeing selections lose in five sets.
However, Sportsbet can reverse that misery if your player falls at the final hurdle – as they’re offering a Fifth Set Refund throughout this year’s Australian Open.
Simply place a Head-to-Head bet before the start of your chosen Australian Open match and get up to $100 of your stake back off Sportsbet, if your player loses in the fifth set.

Having already seen six of the 32 seeded players needing to endure a fifth set shootout just to progress to the Second Round of this year’s tournament – including 24th seed Andreas Seppi, who dug in to deny Lleyton Hewitt a brilliant comeback after the Australian had been 2-0 down – this number is surely bound to increase as the Australian Open reaches the latter stages.
Top two seeds Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are also the bookies’ favourites to become Australian Open champion again this year – as Sportsbet have priced defending champion Djokovic at 1.72, while top seed Nadal is 4.20. Should the two meet in the Final, comparisons will surely be made to their 2012 Australian Open Final meeting.
In what is still the longest Grand Slam Final in history, the two matched each other in a marathon match that lasted just seven minutes shy of the six-hour mark. Djokovic finally prevailed 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7, 7-5 – as he lifted the trophy for a third time.
Should there be a repeat of that this year, let Sportsbet ensure you savour a last set slog; safe in the knowledge you’ll get a return either way.
