In one of the least shocking Australian Opens in recent history, Novak Djokovic took out a record seventh title at Melbourne Park. 

His opponent Dominic Thiem pushed the Serb to a fifth set in the final but the world number 1 managed to pull victory out of the jaws of defeat to deliver a stunning success down under.

Will it be more of the same in 2021 or can a new contender emerge?

2021 Men's Australian Open Tips

Men's Australian Open 2021 Best Bet - Novak Djokovic

How can you bet against the best player ever to take to Rod Laver Arena?

Even in the final against Dominic Thiem when he was down two sets to one there was an air of invincibility about Djokovic that a final push was coming. Novak delivered the killer blows when he needed to and looked every bit of the seven-time Australian Open champion that he is.

Having played 42 matches for the season, half way through November, he has only dropped three matches, claiming him as clearly the best player of a Covid interupted season.

Can anything stop Novak from winning an eighth title? We think only injury can stop the great man heading into 2021.

Men's Australian Open 2021 Next Best Bet - Alex Zverev

Known for a bit of inconsistency, this young man is still quite clearly one of the best players in the world with a giant forehand and big serve.

Reaching the Semi-final in 2020, Zverev will be wanting to at least reach the final this year.

He was the US Open runner-up to Dominic Thiem after leading two sets to nothing, before an almighty come-back from the hard hitting world number three.

If Zverev can correct a couple of little mental demons he has in big matches, this is the kid that can take the tennis ranks by storm.

Men's Australian Open 2021 Value Bet - Andrey Rublev

Having a breakout year, Andrey Rublev has taken out five titles for the season, the latest coming in early November where he comfotably won in Vienna, including a strong win over Dominc Thiem in the Quarter-Finals.

He has reched the quarters in two Grand Slams this year, and will certainly to Australia a much stronger and seasoned player than what he left in 2020.

At double figure odds, he looks the player on the rise who can cause some damage to the top four or five seeds late in the tournament.
