Roger Federer warmed up well with a win at the Qatar Open and looks set to defend his Australian Open title at 19/10 with Betdaq.
Rafa Nadal, 2/1 at Sportingbet, will inevitably be his main challenger but the Swiss World number 2 should have the edge on the hard surface.
Andy Murray holds down an 8/1 quote at Betfred but after slipping to 5th in the world, has the prospect of playing 2 top 4 players back to back. His chances are very limited and it would be a surprise to see him in the final. Soderling looks good at 9/4 (Skybet) to win that quarter.
David Ferrer has to be a player to watch out for. Going quietly about his business, as he always does, he is an exciting 225/1 at Paddy Power. Winning is probably beyond him, considering he is in Nadal’s quarter, but perhaps a speculative quid on him to win the quarter at 25/1 (Stan James) is ok just for fun, and a decent back up should there be any shocks at this tournament.
