THE first Australian Open semi is a repeat of the last two Grand Slam finals as Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battle for supremacy on Wednesday night.
Djokovic has taken the honours on both occasions, tying the head-to-head record at 22 wins apiece, yet William Hill are reporting punters piling into Fed.
They’ve trimmed the Swiss master from 3-1 to 9-4 after 73% of all bets taken on the match were for the No.3 seed.
Spokesman Rupert Adams said: “Roger is always well supported but we have been surprised how one-sided the betting is.”
Djokovic, who beat Federer to lift the Tour Finals title in December after losing to him in the group stage, is 38-100 at Sportingbet. Six of their last seven Grand Slam meetings have gone to at least four sets and over 3.5 tonight pays 8-15 at bet365.
In the first women’s semi-final there looks to be no stopping Serena Williams, who is 1-6 at Paddy Power to defeat an opponent she’s never lost two in eight previous matches, Agnieszka Radwanksa, the 28-5 underdog at Marathonbet.
