Djokovic’s Favorite Tournament

After turning professional in 2003, Novak Djokovic’s rise to the top of the tennis world is filled with remarkable achievements. Currently, the Serbian tennis player owns 79 singles titles and 83% career wins. Also, he ranked number 1 in the men’s singles rankings. One of Djokovic’s preferred tournaments to play in is the Australian Open as he has won it numerous times. Out of 16 entries, he has won the title a total of 8 times and won the past two editions consecutively. So, what are the 2021 Australian Open betting predictions for the Serbian?

A win over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Dubai Final with 6-3 6-4 marks one of Djokovic’s best years. Up to the date of this article’s publication, he is still undefeated in 2020 with 18 wins and 0 losses. This surpasses his 2013 season after going 17 matches without a loss. His last loss was back in November of 2019 against Federer in the Nitto ATP Finals. Therefore, if Djokovic maintains this form, he certainly has the best chance of winning the 2021 Australian Open.

Let’s start betting!

Nadal’s Chance to Break His Unlucky Run

At the age of 34, Rafael Nadal is still one of the best tennis players in the world. He is currently ranked number 2 in the men’s singles rankings with 9850 points. With his notorious left hand, the Spanish player won 85 singles titles. He accumulated 990 wins in his career with an 83% winning percentage. At first glance, Nadal’s resume is not impressive in the Australian Open because he won it only once. However, this record does not show how unlucky Rafa is as he always fell short at the final stages of the tournament. He has reached the final a total of five times, the last of which was in 2019.

Nadal is not showing any signs of slowing down at 34, so this might be the year he breaks the curse. In 2020, he won his 85th career title after winning the Acapulco Final against Fritz 6-3 6-2. Therefore, he still has a good chance of increasing his career title wins in the 2021 Australian Open. Online sportsbook sites in the US have placed him as the second favorite in the 2021 Australian Open betting predictions. On Bwin, betting odds for Nadal to win his second Australia Open title are 7.00.
