It’s going to be a defining year in tennis. With the old guard of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic finally showing the chinks in their armour needed to prove they are human after all, a number of young and talented tennis players are queueing up to put their name in lights and claim their first Grand Slam title.
Where well it come? We’ve looked at the betting lines and analysed the action to provide you with the answers for all four stops on the Grand Slam circuit over the next 12 months.
The Australian Open
The first stop is Down Under, as the Australian Open kicks off on January 20th and runs until February 2nd. With Andy Murray ruled out of both the Australian Open and ATP Cup through injury, the pre-tournament favourite is Serbian slugger Novak Djokovic. With the triumvirate of titans at the top of the rankings consisting of two others in Nadal and Federer, the competition will be fierce, especially as Federer knows that this year may be his last opportunity to win a Grand Slam title, expect fireworks.
