With 2013 less than a month away the tennis world is ready to embrace a year that should be just as exciting as the one just gone by. That is saying something, considering we had four different winners of the four grand slams. But sparks will fly! At the top of the rankings right now is Novak Djokovic this years Australian Open champion and despite the class of Roger Federer, the emergence finally of Andy Murray and the return of Rafael Nadal, the Serb is still the man to beat, according to the latest Australian Open Betting at least. Even more so, Djokovic realistically has the chance to do what he failed to do by a whisker in 2011 and that is to win all the grand slams in a calendar year. Still the best on a hard court, punters who bet on tennis are certain the 25-year-old will his title in Melbourne at the Aussie Open in January. In New York to round off the season he remains favourite to claim victory at Flushing Meadows. He played the better tennis throughout the tournament this year but was narrowly beaten by an inspired Murray in the final. Lightening wont strike twice. Which leaves the two toughies; Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Djokovic is yet to win the clay court slam under French skies but his final appearance this year shows just how far he has come on his least friendly surface. The truth is Nadal who has dominated the tournament like none before him is still struggling with his injuries and may never be the same player again. If Djokovic can add the French Open to his titles then he will surely take an unstoppable momentum into Wimbledon, a tournament that he conquered in fine fashion in 2011. So look out, the Djok is about and 2013 could be another historic year for tennis!
