Roger Federer shortens as favourite to win Australian Open

Roger Federer has been made the bookmakers favourite for the Australian Open Mens Singles title following his impressive three-set defeat of Marat Safin in Melbourne.

To beat Safin so convincingly showed the Swiss ace is at the top of his game whereas you couldn't say the same thus far for Andy Murray or Novak Djokovic. Federer is available at 2.87 at Bet365

Andy Murray remains the second favourite at 4.10 also at PinnacleSports but this has as much to do with patriotic punting from within the UK as it does with estimations of his ability to win his first Grand Slam title here in Melbourne.

We should get a better handle on Rafael Nadal credentials after his match with the unpredicable Tommy Haas tomorrow and Nadal is priced at 4.60 at PinnacleSports right now.
