Here we have the analysis for the Australian Open Mens Tournament.

At first glance this looks like a tournament which favours the strong favourites. You can see from the charts below that the amount of matches won by underdogs is pretty low and averages at around 20% of the matches in each tournament.

From looking at the data there is a high percentage of matches which finish in straight sets 3-0 victories. This was 55.6% in 2011, 50.8% in 2010 and 52.4% in 2009.

Taking a position on the favourite by backing them after they have won gone 1-0 up looks to be the way to go in this tournament but do remember that the odds will be very low at this point so you have to manage your position carefully.  Overall, you should only use strategies which favour the pre-match favourites.
