Many notable performers will take part in the 2022 Australian Open. Below we have reviewed the top athletes that will feature in our Australian Open betting tips.
Novak Djokovic starts the 2022 tennis season by being ranked first in the world. The Serb ended last season with 11,540 points and three new Grand Slam titles to his name, including the 2021 Australian Open, where he thrashed Daniil Medvedev (7-5, 6-2, 6-2) in the final. That was the third consecutive Australian Open title and ninth overall for Novak.
Until now, Djokovic has won 20 Grand Slam titles, 37 ATP Masters tournaments, and 86 ATP singles tournaments. He is undoubtedly the most potent player among men at the moment. However, top youngsters Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev threaten his reign.
Daniil Medvedev has all the chances to replace Djokovic as the world’s number one in the next few years, but he still struggles in most of their head-to-head encounters. Last season, the Russian succumbed to the Serb in the final of the 2021 Australian Open.
Daniil Medvedev had a fantastic ending to his 2021 tennis season. Medvedev won the 2021 US Open, triumphing over Novak Djokovic in three sets (6-4, 6-4, 6-4). In addition, he reached the final of two major tournaments, the Paris Masters and the ATP Finals. Medvedev also contributed to the Russians’ victory at the Davis Cup.
At the end of the 2021 ATP season, Medvedev had 8,640 points and was second in singles.
Alexander Zverev, the world’s third in singles, finished the last season with 7,840 points. His best career result at the Australian Open is the semi-final of the 2020 AO tournament.
Zverev won the 2021 ATP Finals and reached the semi-finals of the French Open and the fourth round of Wimbledon. In addition, Alexander won the Tokyo Olympics in singles by defeating Djokovic in the semis (1-6, 6-3, 6-1) and Karen Khachanov in the final (6-3, 6-1). On top of that, the German won the Madrid Open, the Cincinnati Masters and a few other ATP tournaments.
Ashleigh Barty is the world’s number one in singles. The Australian is the winner of two Grand Slam singles tournaments, the 2019 French Open 2019 and the 2021 Wimbledon. That said, Barty’s highest result at the Australian Open is the semi-finals of the 2020 edition.
Ashleigh Barty finished the 2021 WTA season with 7,582 points. Apart from Wimbledon, she won two WTA 1000 titles, the Miami Open and the Cincinnati Open. Barty also enjoyed moderate success on clay, winning the 2021 Stuttgart Open and reaching the Madrid Open finals.
The Australian will be rested after skipping the Indian Wells and the WTA Finals in 2021.
Naomi Osaka has a strong record at the Australian Open, winning the 2019 and 2021 editions of the tournament. However, the Japanese player has seen her rankings drop since she held the world’s number-one spot in 2019. Now Naomi is only 13th in the WTA singles rating.
Osaka suffered a meltdown of form, failing to deliver at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2021 US Open while being the star athlete of the Japanese Olympic team and the defending champion of the Grand Slam. After the US Open, she even announced a hiatus.
Nevertheless, Naomi Osaka is getting ready to defend her title at the 2022 Australian Open.
Emma Raducanu is a British newcomer who surprisingly won the 2021 US Open, beating Leylah Fernandez (6-4, 6-3). She made her first WTA Tour appearance in June of the same year and became the first woman in tennis history to win a Grand Slam tournament while starting from the qualifiers. Raducanu also reached the fourth round of the 2021 Wimbledon.
Emma Raducanu finished the 2021 WTA season as the 19th in the singles rankings with 2,595 points. The new 2022 tennis season may mark her breakthrough as not being random.

How experts analyse Australian Open for tennis predictions
Our tennis handicapper team thoroughly examines upcoming matches based on a range of data to come up with precise Australian Open tips.
Below are the essential criteria one should keep in mind when making Australian Open betting predictions:
- Court surface. The Australian Open has a hard surface. Some tennis players perform on a hard surface better than others, and our experts keep this in mind when analysing their H2H records and the most recent results.
- Physical conditions and recent form. The experts consider the physical form, recent injuries, and the latest results.
- Betting odds. Implied probabilities lying in bookie odds are analysed and taken into account to choose valuable bets.
- Motivation. This criterion is also worth paying attention to. The prize money and the number of points one can acquire, personal rivalries, psychological pressure, and fans’ support — all matter.
- H2H. Results of face-to-face meetings at the same tournament, on the same surface, as well as the most recent head-to-heads, are closely analysed for trends and hints.
- Statistics. When analysing previous games, experts pay their utmost attention to such factors as the number of aces, double faults, serve performance, etc. These statistics contribute to the analysis and help pick Australian Open tennis tips.
- News. Experts read interviews and follow all the latest comments made by tennis players about their form, motivations, results, and plans for the upcoming games.
