Williams rightly favourite for the Australian Open

Serena Williams is rightly the market favourite for the 2019 Australian Open with Sportsbet. The 23 time Grand Slam winner last appeared at the tournament as the winner in 2017.

Swapping tennis for motherhood in 2018 Williams is going in search of a record-equalling 24th grand slam title this year to go level with Margaret Court who won 24 grand slam singles titles. But will she get things all her own way?

Last years final was a very competitive affair with current champion, Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep competing and both will be focused on toppling the American in 2019.

Outside the very familiar top three, we can expect decent showings from Naomi Osaka who took a sensational 2018 US Open victory over Serena Williams and German tennis star Angelique Kerber who is in pursuit of the fourth Grand Slam title.

Sportsbet have an extensive tennis betting centre offering competitive odds on a massive range of markets for the 2019 Australian Open so get involved with all the action and start winning.
