2009 Australian Open Mens Winner Odds

The 2009 Australian Open kicks off in a few hours with Roger Federer installed as the pre-tournament favorite. Despite the numerous reports in the build up to the 2009 event putting Andy Murray as the favorite, Federer’s victory this week at the Kooyong Classic pushed the former world number 1 back into the favorite to lift this years title.

Federer thrashed his Swiss compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka 6-1 6-3 to win the eight-strong invitational event, the Kooyong Classic in Melbourne. Federer is looking for the record equaling 14th grand slam title. Federer is currently averaging 5/2 ( 13/5 with Betfair) with the bookmakers.

Andy Murray is rightly seen as Federer’s number 1 challenger, having been nearly unbeatable over the last 5 months including 3 titles, ATP Masters Series Madrid, St. Petersburg and last week in Doha. He has also beaten Federer 3 times since their US Open final in August. Murray is currently averaging 13/5 ( 3/1 with Betfair) with the bookmakers.

Murray’s form and Nadal injury as seen the world number 1 Spaniard in the unfamiliar position as third favorite, average odds of 19/5 (22/5 on Betfair) and defending champ Novak Djokovic down in fourth, averaging odds of 67/10 (Betfair 8/1). Djokovic has failed in the last 6 months to show the form that seen him win the title last year and challenge Federer and Nadal for the world number 1 spot.

Anyone looking for outside shots, should consider Americans James Blake and Andy Roddick. Roddick has been showing signs of stirring back into life and James Blake one day will follow through on the potential he has, this may the year for him. Andy Roddick is averaged at 58/1 (94/1 on Betfair) and James Blake’s average is 157/1 (289/1 on Betfair).
