10th January 2023

NOVAK DJOKOVIC is the odds-on favourite to win the 2023 Australian Open on his return Down Under.

The Serb was deported from the country last year owing to his Covid vaccination status.

But he's set to return next week and is 10/11 with Betfair to lift a record TENTH Aussie Open – and match Rafa Nadal's record of 22 Grand Slam titles.

That's in part due to the injury and absence of world number one Carlos Alcaraz.

Daniil Medvedev – who Djokovic beat in straight sets in the warm-up event in Adelaide – is second favourite at 11/2.

Nadal (13/1), Nick Kyrgios (14/1) and Stefanos Tsitsipas (16/1) will all fancy their chances also.

From a British perspective, Cam Norrie (66/1), Jack Draper (150/1), Andy Murray (250/1) and Dan Evans (300/1) look to have quite the task ahead of them.

While in the women's draw, Iga Swiatek unsurprisingly leads the betting as the 15/8 favourite.

Again, she's helped by the fact Ash Barty – current holder of the Aussie Open – retired during the year in 2022.

Swiatek leads big-hitting Belarussian Aryna Sabalenka (17/2) and Caroline Garcia (10/1) at the top of the market with Betfair.

She is 50/1 to win this competition with Betfair.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “Novak Djokovic is the clear 10/11 odds-on favourite to win the 2023 Men’s Australian Open, a year after he was deported from Melbourne for not being vaccinated against COVID.

"Djokovic will be looking to equal Rafael Nadal’s record-breaking 22 Grand Slam triumphs, but Daniil Medvedev stands in his way at 11/2, while the Spaniard is 13/1 to win a second successive Australian Open.

“For the women’s tournament, Iga Swiatek is the 15/8 frontrunner to go all the way in Melbourne, while all eyes are likely to be on Emma Raducanu, who faces a late fitness test after rolling her ankle.

"The 2021 US Open winner is a big outsider at 50/1 to lift a second Grand Slam title.”
