Naomi Osaka 2020 US Open champion

The start of the 2021 WTA Tour campaign is around the corner and you will no doubt be looking to fill your pockets at the bookies so we have some early WTA tennis betting specials for you.

Let’s start with the Grand Slams and, in case you had forgotten, Sofia Kenin (Australian Open), Naomi Osaka (US Open) and Iga Swiatek (French Open) were the three major winners in 2020.

ATP tennis betting special: Roger Federer to win Wimbledon next year? Andy Murray to win a title?

We have had five different Australian Open winners the past five years and you have to go back to 2013 for the last time a player successfully defended her title with Victoria Azarenka doing the honours.

Kenin is 15/1 at 888Sport and UniBet to break the sequence and successfully defend her title with 2019 champion Osaka the favourite at 8/1 (bet365) to win a second title Down Under.

World No 1 and local hope Ashleigh Barty is at 9/1 to win her home Grand Slam while Serena Williams is 10/1 to win the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup for an eighth time and tie Margaret Court on 24 majors.

If things go according to plan, then the 2021 French Open will start just over seven months after the 2020 edition took place and young gun Swiatek is 5/1 to make it back-to-back titles.

But 2019 Roland Garros champion Barty is good value for money at 10/1 at most bookies while 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza is a tasty 14/1 at BetVictor.

There was no Wimbledon in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic so Halep will start as the defending champion and you can get her at 10/1 at bet365 along with Osaka. Barty, Serena Williams and Bianca Andreescu are all 8/1.

The US Open will be the final Slam of the year, if things go according to plan, and Osaka is 8/1 to win a third title at Flushing Meadows while you can get 2019 champion Andreescu at 10/1 along with Williams. Last year’s runner-up Victoria Azarenka is 16/1 at SkyBet.

By the way, Osaka is 7/1 to win two Grand Slams in 2021 and Williams 6/4 to win one.

What about the WTA year-end No 1? Barty has finished top the past two years and she is 15/8 with Coral to make it a hat-trick while Halep, who was at No 1 in 2017 and 2018, is 10/3. Osaka is 11/2 and if you are looking for a bit of an outside bet, then reigning French Open champion Swiatek is 14/1 while Serena Williams is 22/1.
