Who is the favourite to win the men’s Australian Open 2023?

The first tennis Grand Slam of 2023 kicks off on Monday 16th January at Melbourne Park.

Defending men’s champion Rafael Nadal has been handed a tough opener by drawing in-form Jack Draper from Great Britain in the first round.

Nadal came from 2 sets down to beat Daniil Medvedev 2-6 6-7 6-4 6-4 7-5 in the thrilling final 12 months ago.
