Australian Open Tennis Betting

It’s one of the biggest tennis tournaments in the world, and in terms of the prize pot the biggest. Helped by the strong Australian dollar, the Australian Open has come up trumps with a 15 per cent increase over last year’s prize-money, raising it to thirty million dollars!

Even Wimbledon could only offer about twenty-five million, so with all that money sloshing around there’s bound to be plenty of on-court action to use bookies tennis free bets on.

The Australian Open is one of the four Grand Slams; the greatest tennis tournaments of the tennis year. Along with The French Open, The US Open, and Wimbledon they are the mighty four; the ones that all the big hitters are playing to win; so there’s no better way to make use of free bet offers than the Australian Open

Whether you’re a tennis nut or not, you’d have to be nuts to pass on all the free bets that online bookies offer new members. Yes, the Australian Open is going to be a gripping competition with all the thrills and spills you’d expect from a world-class tennis tournament and the run up seems likely to be just as exciting.

The Hyundai Hopman Cup takes place in the Perth arena from 29th December - 5th January 2013; The Brisbane International is all set for the 30th December - 6th January at the Queensland Tennis Centre; The Moorilla Hobart International is on at the Domain Tennis Centre, Hobart, Tasmania, between 4th - 12th January; The Apia International is at the Sydney Olympic Park, between 6th - 12th January; and finally the World Tennis Challenge is happening in Adelaide between 8th - 10th January.

With all that tennis action going on, you can take advantage of those tennis free bets before the Australian Open even starts.

The serving commences at Melbourne Park on the 14th of January through to the final on the 17th. As the first tennis Grand Slam of the New Year draws closer, it’s time for you to prepare for action and think about who you might back with a free bet offer.

Federer, one of the most successful Australian Open male winners of all time, is seeded number three - although he’s had a dodgy knee and he’ll need to be sure he’s okay to play.

Serbian Novak Djokovic, who won in 2011 and 2012, is seeded number one, Rafael Nadal of Spain two, and Scotsman, Andy Murray, number four. So who should you place your free tennis betting offers on?

Well, the bookies odds are in line with the seeding and the Serbian is again the favourite, although many think London Olympic gold medal winner Murray is worth using some of your free bets money on.
