NOT sure what the tennis boys are thinking but I’m getting on this one before the tournament starts next week.
It’s almost time for the first tennis Grand Slam of the season and in my eyes Novak Djokovic can’t be beaten. Did anyone see his display in routing Rafael Nadal at the weekend.
I’ve never seen him play better and with Andy Murray continuing to lose to the Serb and with one eye on a possible early return home in case his baby is a few weeks premature it’s all about the world No.1.
He has won five times in Melbourne including four of the last five and clearly loves the event.
Djoko was 10-11 before that Nadal masterclass but is now a best 8-11 with the likes of William Hill so it’s not great but I’m risking a lumpy bet. I’ll also be backing 3-0 in all of his early matches if I can get any sort of price.
Murray is a 11-2 second favourites with William Hill and Roger Federer 8-1 ahead of 12-1 Nadal.
