Favorite to Win the 2023 Australian Open Men’s Single Tournament

Last year’s banning aside, the mere return of Novak Djokovic on Aussie soil means that the men’s singles draw in Melbourne will have to go through the winningest player of the tournament once more. With an unprecedented record of nine Australian Open titles under his belt, Djokovic is far and away the consensus favorite to win it all in his comeback appearance. So much so that the likes of World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz, former US Open champion Daniil Medvedev, and reigning Australian Open champ Rafael Nadal each have far longer odds of overcoming Djoker’s dominance Down Under.

Dark Horses to Win the 2023 Australian Open Men’s Single Tournament

Alexander Zverev

Had it not been for an untimely ankle injury during the semifinal stage of last year’s French Open, Alexander Zverev could have been the ATP Tour’s next top star. The two-time ATP Tour Finals winner reached his best ranking of World No. 2 thanks to his deep run at Roland Garros before slipping down the leaderboard due to his absence. Over his last nine Grand Slam appearances, Zverev reached the finals once, made the reached the semis on four other occasions, and exited no earlier than the fourth round in each of those nine GS events. A motivated Zverev making his return to action on the court sure smells of superb sleeper value.

Holger Rune

Arguably the fastest-rising player in the ATP Tour today, 19-year-old Holger Rune is looking to make the big leap toward Grand Slam success. The young Danish standout won his maiden ATP Masters title in Paris last year and even had a decent quarterfinal showing at Roland Garros. Rune’s evidently capable of being a force on clay, but can he finally find success on the hard courts? Regardless, he’s a very intriguing dark horse pick to win the Aussie Open, especially since he’s still on the cusp of returning to the top 10 of the world rankings as the 11th-best men’s singles tennis player to date.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Another savant on the clay courts is Stefanos Tsitsipas, who won the 2021 French Open men’s singles title to vault him into stardom. Although the pride of Athens has cooled off a bit in Grand Slam events since winning at Roland Garros, he’s still currently ranked No. 4 in the world with three victories in non-Grand Slam tournaments in 2022. Tsitsipas has been close to winning it all in Melbourne as well giving him even better value as another solid sleeper candidate, with three semifinal appearances at the Australian Open over the last four years.

Huge Reach Pick to Win the 2023 Australian Open Men’s Single Tournament

Once regarded as one of the ATP Tour’s Big Four, Andy Murray is now but a shell of his once-dominant self. While a finals appearance in Sydney at around this time last year (his first finals appearance since 2019) is encouraging, it still did not translate into an overall win for the British veteran. Murray has not won an ATP Tour event since late 2019 and is no more than a virtual longshot to win his very first Australian Open title amidst the twilight of his career.
