Melbourne Park hosts the first tennis Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open. It takes place in January each year and the tournament staged its centenary year in 2005 and has a very impressive Roll of Honour for both the mens and Ladies singles. Previous winners are well fancied in the Tennis Betting for the next tournament and there tend to be few upsets in the odds in recent seasons.
With the advent of 24 hour TV broadcasting, the Australian Open has become a very popular tournament in Europe and the UK despite the time difference and the many late nights. In fact Bookmakers report that there has been a huge increase for Australian Open Tennis Betting over the last few years. As it is staged during the evening, Europeans can enjoy morning viewing and thus be able to take advantage of the popular Australian Open Tennis In-Running Betting markets.
