The long fortnight at Melbourne Park for the Australian Open tennis starts on Monday. It is a grueling task for the players in the heat Down Under and on the quick blue courts. This is where it counts for the players though, this is where they all dream of being, at a Grand Slam and at making some progress there.
Of course only the big guns of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic appear to be strongly in contention to win the thing outright. Djokovic is going for his seventh title at the Australian Open and that would make him the all-time leader there. He already is in the Open Era, but to stand alone with a record breaking seven titles at the Grand Slam would get his year off to a pretty fine start.
But it is Andy Murray who goes into the tournament as number one in the world after a strong finish to the second half of 2016. Murray was the man, but already this year he has been taken down a peg by Djokovic. The two met recently in the final of Doha and it was the Serbian who took the title in three sets. These two are head and shoulders above the rest of the field anyway and it would be a huge shock if one of them isn’t crowned champions.
But there is a 128 man field entering the fray and that means a lot of games to come over the next fortnight and frankly, it is some great entertaining and betting opportunites to get stuck into.
