2020 Men’s Australian Open Odds

The Big Three have dominated men’s tennis for over a decade. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic have more Grand Slam titles than any player in the history of men’s tennis. Federer has the record with 20 Grand Slam titles, and Nadal is currently just one victory behind his long-time rival with 19 victories. Djokovic might end up as the GOAT when it’s all said and done though as he currently sits on 16 Grand Slam titles. He has won four of the last six Grand Slam titles, and he is the favorite per the tennis betting odds ahead of the 2020 Australian Open.

A player outside the Big Three hasn’t won a Grand Slam event since Stanislas Wawrinka won the 2016 US Open. Since that point, Nadal has five titles, Djokovic has four titles, and Federer has three titles. In an interesting twist, all three legends have won two Grand Slams on hard court over the last three years with Federer winning the 2017 and 2018 Australian Open, Djokovic winning the 2019 Australian Open and 2018 US Open, and Nadal claiming the 2017 and 2019 US Open titles.

The 2020 Australian Open will run for two weeks from January 20 to February 2, 2020 at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia. ESPN, ESPN2, and The Tennis Channel will broadcast all the action in the United States, and the bulk of the coverage will be on ESPN2.

Odds Analysis

Djokovic has been the best player in men’s tennis over the last two years, and he is in fine form ahead of this event. Djokovic won the ATP Cup in straight sets over Rafael Nadal last week, and he defeated up and comers like Daniil Medvedev and Denis Shapovalov in the run-up to the final.

His first Grand Slam title was the 2008 Australian Open, and Djokovic has won six of the last nine Australian Open titles. Djokovic crushed Nadal 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 at last year’s final, and he pummeled Lucas Pouille 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 in the semifinals. His powerful serve and all-around game make him tough to beat, and he has an advantage in both age and stamina over his top two rivals.

Nadal’s usual trajectory over the course of a year is to start off strong before fatigue and injuries wear him down. He is a fiery player that is constantly expending energy, and his unabashed style has made him a crowd favorite over more reserved and composed players. There’s no doubt that he leaves it all out on the court, and Nadal will do that during the first Grand Slam of the year.

The greatest clay court player of all-time has only won the Australian Open one time. That victory came all the way back in 2009, and he would love to add a second trophy to his mantle. If Nadal wins in Melbourne, he will become the first of the Big Three to win multiple titles at every Grand Slam event.

It’s clear that Roger Federer is finally starting to wear down, and he only has a few more seasons left in him. Federer admitted as much earlier this week when addressing the media, stating that there are sure to be more Grand Slam titles for Djokovic and Nadal, but he may have run out of time.

Federer is incredibly fluid and composed, so it’s unlikely he gets upset despite his age, but Nadal and Djokovic both know how to get past him. He has a sub-.500 career record against both opponents, yet he does have a historic edge on Nadal on hard surfaces.
