Women's tennis has the same four Grand Slams as men's tennis, and they take place simultaneously, which means that the women's 2024 Australian Open will be taking place between the 14th and 28th of January. Women's tennis has a reputation as being of lesser quality when compared to men's, but you will find just as much entertainment and drama when the women take to the court. There are plenty of tennis betting options too, but before you go ahead and place a wager, check out my Australian Open women's prediction below.

🎾 Australian Open Betting Preview

Like in the men's edition, there will be 128 participants in the women's Australian Open. It is also a knockout competition, which means that a player will be eliminated from the competition if they suffer one loss. Overall, there will be 64 games that you can opt to do a bit of tennis betting on.

Below I will have a look at four players who I believe will serve up top performances in Melbourne, and have a good shot of walking away with the silverware. Under the four players, you will see some top 2024 women's Australian Open odds that some of the best betting sites are currently offering.

1️⃣Iga Swiatek

Iga Swiatek has started this season in fine fettle, picking up three United Cup wins over Caroline Garcia, Qinwen Zheng, and Angelique Kerber. To date, she has won the French Open and the US Open, so will be looking to add a third Grand Slam to her list of trophies. However, she has tended to struggle on the faster courts Down Under, having made it to just one semi-final in five appearances. She has been given a tough draw too, as she will face Sofia Kenin in the First Round, and will then have a potential meeting with Kerber or Collins.

2️⃣ Aryna Sabalenka

Sabalenka is the reigning women's Australian Open champion, and it is fair to say that the draw has been kinder to her than her Polish rival. She is on the opposite side of the draw to Swiatek and Rybakina and is unlikely to face a true test until a potential meeting with Ons Jabeur in the quarter-finals. She used to struggle with nerves in big matches, but she has started to keep those under control, while the Australian conditions will suit her the best. In 2023, she won just under 80% of the matches that she played.

3️⃣ Elena Rybakina

Elena Rybakina will enter the 2024 Australian Open with some decent form behind her as she won the Brisbane International last week, beating Sabalenka 6-0, 6-3 in the final. She was surprisingly knocked out of the Adelaide International by Ekaterina Alexandrova, but I do not think that she will read too much into this defeat. She made it to the final of the 2023 Australian Open, so she knows that she has the game to perform well on this type of surface.

4️⃣ Coco Gauff

The young American also finds herself on the weaker side of the draw, and she already has a Grand Slam under her belt as she won the US Open in 2023. Now that she no longer has the pressure of winning her first Grand Slam trophy hovering above her, she can play with a lot more freedom which is not good news for any of her opponents. She kicked off her 2024 in style as she won in Auckland, losing just one set along the way. Gauff is yet to reach the last eight of the Australian Open, but I think she will break that duck this time around.

📊 Australian Open Winners

While the men's version of this competition has been dominated by one player, Novak Djokovic, the same cannot be said of the women's edition. There has not been back-to-back winners of the women's Australian Open since Azarenka managed it in 2012 and 2013. Since then, there has been eight different winners of this competition, including the likes of Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, and Caroline Wozniacki.

It is always wise to check out who has won previous editions of a tournament as it can give a bit of an understanding as to who will win the next edition. Top-quality experiences will usually lead to more success. Thus, below are the winners and runners-up from the last decade:

🏆 Australian Open Prediction

So, who do I think will go on to become the Australian Open women's winner? Well, in my opinion, this one is a lot harder to call than the men's competition. Swiatek, as you saw above, is the favourite with the bookmakers, but I think that there is more value in betting on Sabalenka.

The Pole has struggled at the Australian Open in the past, while Sabalenka is the reigning champion and has a game that is very much suited to this type of surface. She owes most of her success to her aggressive and powerful style of play, but she has been known to suffer from the yips at times. I think there is plenty of value in betting on the Belarussian to become the first woman to defend her Australian Open title in ten years.

My Australian Open Prediction: Aryna Sablenka to win.

⭐ Australian Open Betting Tips

So, now that I have provided you with who I think will go on and lift the 2024 Australian Open, I will take a bit of time to give you some other Australian Open women's betting tips to consider when betting and making use of Australian Open women's odds. When you are placing a bet on any type of sport, you need to ensure that you always gamble responsibly.

Who Are the Dark Horses?

All sporting events will have dark horses, and some of the dark horses in the women's Australian Open who are not among the top favourites include the likes of Zheng Qiwen, Liudmila Samsonova, Jelena Ostapenko, and Victoria Azarenka. These four players will believe that they have the skills to go deep in this tournament, and maybe even walk away with the title.

Top Tip 1: If you do not like the look of the odds that the bookies are offering for some of the favourites because you do not think that they will win or you prefer to place bets with higher odds, then I suggest that you take a look at Azarenka to win. She has won this competition two times, and it always seems to bring the best out of her as she has reached at least the last eight on six occasions. Her baseline game is solid, while she has an authoritative forehand and quality backhand.

Each Way Betting

In a game of tennis, you have the option of placing an each-way bet, which gives you a chance to earn some sort of return if your selected player makes it all the way to the final. If they go on to win the title, you will land yourself a bigger return. If you are looking to put down an each-way wager, then below are some stats that you should keep in mind:

  • Seven finalists in the previous ten years have been ranked outside the top ten.
  • Nine of the previous ten winners were ranked in the world's top six,
  • Six of the previous ten champions had at least one grand slam title under their belt.
  • Seven of the previous ten winners won the Australian Open for the first time.
  • Previous Australian Open form is not much of an indicator as previous winners have gone out early the following year.

Top Tip 2: If I were to put down an each-way bet, then I would consider betting on Coco Gauff. She has a good chance of making it to the final as she is on the weaker side of the draw and will enter the competition in some decent form. Despite this, she still has decent odds that can lead to some enticing each-way returns if she were to make it to the Aus Open women's final.

Who Would I Not Bet On?

In every sporting event, there will always be one or two players who fail to live up to the expectations. I am sure that at least one of the big players will suffer a shock defeat early on, but who would I recommend you avoid betting on?

Top Tip 3: Naomi Osaka might have won the Australian Open on two occasions, but I cannot see her winning this time around. She took part in the Brisbane competition last week and just did not look like her usual dominant self. She struggled to win her opening match and then lost to Pliskova, who is not the player that she used to be. She needs to start playing more consistently if she is going to trouble the favourites in future competitions.

❓ Frequently Asked Questions About the Australian Open

What Are the Best Betting Sites for the 2024 Australian Open?

All of the top betting sites will offer competitive odds and a range of betting markets for this big tennis competition. However, there are three sites that I recommend to Irish tennis bettors, and these are Betiton, Dachbet Sports, and Betway.

Who Will Win the 2024 Australian Open?

There are a number of female players who will firmly believe that they have the skills to go on and win the 2024 Australian Open. However, the one player that I think will go on and win the trophy is Sabalenka. The Belarussian has a powerful game that not many can contend with, and her game is very well suited for this type of court.

Who Has the Most Australian Open Titles?

In the Open Era, Serena Williams has been the most successful player, winning the Australian Open a total of seven times. She lifted it in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2015, and 2017.
