The Australian Open gets under way in Melbourne late on Sunday night with Andy Murray seeded fourth and priced at 11/2 by William Hill to finally lift the trophy having finished as runners-up in the last two years. Stan James make him 7/1 to be runner-up again while make him 11/4 to make the final, regardless of result from there.
Betfred chalk up Roger Federer as a 4/1 shot but with a recent withdrawl due to injury, he may be best left, while bookies are struggling to see past defending champion and world number one Novak Djokovic, an 11/8 chance with Skybet. Djokovic should have it in the bag.
Rafael Nadal is the biggest of the top four seeds at 15/2 (BetVictor) and outside of the top four, Juan Martin del Potro is 16/1 (Totesport) and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 20/1 (Boyelsports). David Ferrer is hard to ignore at 66/1 with Coral.
