Once the U.S. Open has come and gone, the average tennis fan turns attention toward the Australian Open. There’s great tennis going on at smaller events between now and December, but Grand Slams draw the most attention, and that’s why we’re already excited for Melbourne!
In looking toward the women’s tournament at the Australian Open, instead of merely predicting winners, we’re going to take an approach that considers the betting odds involved. Using the online sports book Betfair, we can actually get early odds on each individual woman’s odds to win the Australian Open, which is a good way to gauge things this far in advance. As the event creeps closer, we will of course see an official tournament draw, as well as odds on individual matches – but for now, Betfair’s backing odds for each player serve as great fuel for speculation and prediction. So without further ado, here are the 10 ladies with the best odds to win the Australian Open!
