Novak Djokovic Australian Open 2012 odds - Reigning champion favourite for title

Novak Djokovic is a top price of 11/8 at SportingBet to retain his Australian Open title in Melbourne Park in the year's first Grand Slam. 

Watch and bet on the 2012 Australian Open live at bet365>livestreaming>tennis from January 15th.

Novak Djokovic won three of the four Grand Slams in 2011, claiming the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open titles in a season that saw the Serb usurp both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and claim the world number one spot.

The 24-year-old was unstoppable in the first half of the year, winning every tournament he entered until losing to Federer in the French Open semi finals. His 70-6 record in 2011 was one of the best of all time and only injury prevented Djokovic from achieving even greater things as the year drew to a close.

A shoulder problem prevented the world number one from being competitive in the ATP World Tour Finals but he was back to his best in the Mubadala World Tennis Championships at the start of 2012, beating Gael Monfils, David Ferrer and Roger Federer. He goes into the Australian Open as the hot favourite and is a best price of 11/8 with SportingBet to retain the title he won last year, when he beat Andy Murray 6-4, 6-2, 6-3.

Djokovic is 1/10 at Sky Bet to win his quarter and reach the semi finals and that should be no problem for the 'Djoker' who will have nothing to fear from the likes of Ferrer, Andy Roddick and Janko Tipsarevic. Should he come through unscathed then a potential semi final with Murray, against whom he holds a 6-4 head-to-head lead (1-0 in Grand Slams) awaits and that is likely to be his toughest test of the tournament. Should he pass that then the Serb will be confident of claiming a third Australian Open title.
