The start of this tennis season looks very promising for the fans of this sport. In Abu Dhabi and Thailand the quality of the play has been outstanding, which is a very rare thing to take place. And in the whole, the beginning of the season has witnessed abnormally high tennis quality. Usually there is a group of players who make slow start while the others try to get the most of the season beginning. This time it’s all different. By this reason we can hardly single out any player who has shown the tennis which is not up to his average level. That’s awesome! At the same time it means that tennis develops rapidly and the competition expands. And that’s good.
Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open 2015
As for the top seed players, we have been deeply impressed by Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka and Tomas Berdych. Their brilliance has been beyond the ability of the most players. And even their losses to Karlovic, Nadal and Ferrer haven’t spoilt that impression. Richard Gasquet seems to be in a good form; Rafael Nadal is injury free and will struggle at full strength; the big serving Ivo Karlovic and Samuel Groth are also capable of making a dent in the men’s draw. The young guns represented by Jiri Vesely, David Goffin and Pablo Carreño Busta. These are the players who are now showing their best of the best tennis. Of coure, the list is not complete, but these ones have really impressed us.
Now let’s have a look at how the first Grand Slam tournament may play out. The bet of five set format is more beneficial for the experienced players who possess great stamina and endurance. The young generation aged 22-23 may find it hard to play 3-4 hours under the Australian sun. Also the two –week marathon will be easier for those who are supported by a big team of professionals, by a good coach, sparring partners, physical therapists. All this reduces the long list of the contender to the well-known names.
Novak Djokovic had a fever the first playing week and withdrew from Abu Dhabi final and lost to Ivo Karlovic. But still he’s the main favorite to us. The Serb’s dominance on court is tremendous and indisputable. It means that even being the father of the family, Novak is not going to give up tennis. Not now. It’s very important that he keeps constantly working out and there I anger and the desire to prevail in his eyes. We remember Novak Djokovic during the Us Open Series last year when all his thoughts were far away from tennis. And the results spoke for themselves.
Today Djokovic is angry and is willing to win! And he has it all to lift the final trophy as he did three of the last four years.
Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open 2015
Another big favorite to the title for us is…Rafael Nadal! This year the Spaniard has played three official matches with his opponents being Murray, Wawrinka and Michael Berrer. Judging by these plays, Rafa looks fit and healthy. Even despite two losses. Nadal is known for his ability to make step by step improvements in the course of the event. So if he can get a number of early wins, Rafa will be difficult to upset. Remember that he has shown good tennis in the exhibition matches of TheSummerSet and has taken the doubles in Doha together with his countryman Juan Monaco. So Nadal does everything right to obtain valuable match practice.
Stan Wawrinka at the Australian Open 2015
Our third favorite is Swiss No.2 Stan Wawrinka who is currently seems to be in his bet form ever! His tennis now isn’t worse to his 2014 level. So Stan can definitely morph into Stanimal again. His shots are powerful and precise. And some small mistakes haven’t prevented him from defending his Chennai Open title. Probably, the 3 seed Stan is the most motivated player at this championship who will do his best to repeat the last-year triumph. Probably, it would be a bit harder to do as this year he is not a dark horse anymore and his opponents will be on guard. Stan is a big lover of the best-of-five-set format as nature has endowed him with outstanding endurance and strong body. And in this case heat and power may be his faithful companions en route to the final. Moreover, now the Swiss has more experience than a year ago. Neither Nadal, nor Djokovic frighten him now. Well, let’s not exaggerate. Maybe Djokovic is still a bit of threat to him.
Another our favorite is Tomas Berdych. With his significant steps forward, he must easily get to the semifinal. Only his mental issue may become a challenge for the Czech No.1 at this major tennis event. We wish his hands hadn’t shaken in Doha final match. The Czech has played very smart tennis with almost no mistakes in Qatar. What is more important, nobody considers Tomas to be a serious rival. It may be a big advantage to him shall the Czech make it to the final rounds. So we believe in Tomas. The question is whether he believes it or not…
As usually, there are some dark horses to look at. Andy Murray is capable of making surprises. But the Brit still has some elements to hone in his tennis. He is too undercooked now. He didn’t make the most of the Hopman Cup where he fooled around instead of practicing. By the way, Andy Murray is another player who has to train his head, not technical equipment. Last year’s prodigies also have good winning chances: first of all, it’s Grigor Dimitrov and Kei Nishikori. The both haven’t shown their best sides yet, but they are definitely preparing something to please their fans.
What about Roger Federer? We think that his chances are very low at this tournament. Of course, he’ll do his best but it’s very hard for Roger to close up even best-of-three-set matches. We all have seen how he lost control over the match after he broke the serve of Raonic in Brisbane final. The Grand Slam title requires full concentration which Roger lacks at times. But nevertheless, keep it in mind that it’s Roger and he can outdo himself if he finds ways to come through the first week.
The big server from Canada Milos Raonic is another fellow with no chances. The only thing he can do is to get on the nerves of the Big 4. And yes! Shall he progress to the semifinal, he may boost the chances of Roger Federer. But that’ s another story.
These are the main real favorites to the first grand slam title. This year the one who’ll have the easiest way to the final rounds, will lift the trophy, as there are too many players in perfect physical form. Some of them are only ranked in the top 100. Thus, for example, if Djokovic happens to face Kukushkin, he’ll be in great trouble!
Our Dotennis service is planning to make 10-15 picks during the first playing week which is equal to our average monthly records. So if you want to see how it works and need extra money, it’s high time you subscribed to our tips! It’s going to be fun, entertaining and…profitable! Welcome!

Such evaluation of Gasquet from the bookmakers is understandable. The Frenchman lost his two previous encounters in a row to Monaco and Nadal, which is a sign of a bad form from Richard.
