Australian Open betting
Australian Open men's betting at Coral
The annual Australian Open may be the first Grand Slam of the calendar year, but the men’s edition is actually the newest after Wimbledon, the US Open and French Open; though, actually officially became a major a year before the latter tournament achieved that status in 1924. Known as the Australasian Championships in the early days – where it was held in neighbouring New Zealand on occasion too - before becoming the Australian Championships in 1927 and then its present day name from 1969, English-born Aussie competitor Rodney Heath holds claim to being the first ever male champion in the event's history back in 1905. James Anderson, not to be confused with current England cricketer, meanwhile, won the maiden men’s title as a major, and he went on to add to his earlier success in 1922 a year later. While Anderson set an early benchmark, his trophy total of three has since been overtaken by seven stars, including two Australian compatriots Ken Rosewall and Roy Emerson, who has the record of six to date alongside Novak Djokovic (most in the Open Era). Not far behind Emerson’s total are retired American Andre Agassi (with four), Roger Federer (also four), who returns to action in Melbourne. Can world number one Sir Andy Murray finally win this tournament for the first time? Will late-blooming Swiss player Stan Warwinka climb to the mountain again, or could we have a maiden winner with the likes of Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori and Dominic Thiem all still waiting to break through at tennis majors?
