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.
Melbourne Park (formerly Flinders Park) was constructed in time for the 1988 Australian Open Tennis to meet the demands of this evolving tournament. The move to Melbourne Park was an immediate success, with a 90 per cent increase in attendance, it is now as popular and important as the three other tennis Grand Slams:
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.
The Australian Tennis Open is the first opportunity of the new year for tennis punters to make Tennis Grand Slam bets and many will want to take advantage of the antepost prices on some of the most favoured players such as Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Murray in the mens and Williams, Azarenka and Sharapova in the Ladies. Check out all the Australian Open Ante Post Betting here. When the draw has been made there will be ample opportunity for tennis junkies to get stuck into the various other Australian Open Tennis Betting Markets, such as Match betting and set betting.
Remember tennis betting is made very cost effective with the use of the many excellent Australian Open Tennis Free Bets that are offered by Bookmakers on this site.
