2020 Australian Open: Djokovic and Osaka to ‘defend their titles’ in Melbourne?



The highly-anticipated 2020 Australian Open gets underway on Monday, and will go ahead as planned.

Despite the devastating fires that have engulfed much of the country, the organisers have said the tournament will start and finish as scheduled.

Qualifiers for the tournament have already taken place, meaning all focus is now on the championship.

January has already witnessed Sydney play host to the ATP Cup, with the Qatar Open also complete at this early stage of the year. All attention is, therefore, now fully diverted to Melbourne.

But world number one Nadal will be out for revenge, and he’s currently 9/2 to win back the prestigious trophy.

Despite sitting in fourth place in the world rankings, Daniil Medvedev has been tipped to reach the latter stages of the tournament. He is currently 8/1 to go the full away and clinch success in Melbourne.

The Russian finds himself between Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem in the rankings. And they are currently 11/1 and 25/1 respectively to secure the title.

In the Women’s tournament, it’s serial winner Serena Williams who is favourite to secure yet another victory. She kick-started who fourth decade on the WTA Tour by clinching success at the Auckland Classic earlier this month.

It was her first title in three years, and first since becoming a mother. She will be out for further glory at the Australian Open.

Williams is currently 17/4 to pick up another honour with success in Melbourne.
But she will be competing against world number Ashleigh Barty, who will undoubtedly be roared on at the tournament by her home fans.

The Australian is available at 8/1 to win the entire competition.

Also looking to clinch victory is defending champion Naomi Osaka, the current world number three. She defeated Petra Kvitova 7-6, 5-7, 6-4 last time out, and is 8/1 to win back-to-back Australian Open titles.

Kvitova is currently 22/1 to avenge that defeat by lifting the 2020 Australian Open trophy.
