Understanding the ATP 2023 Adelaide International 1
The 2023 edition of the Adelaide International 1 is only the second time this tournament has been held as an ATP event. Uniquely, the Adelaide International 1 is the first of two ATP 250 tournaments run back-to-back in Adelaide, in the same venue, in consecutive weeks. While every player in the draw will undoubtedly be eager to win the tournament, the reality is that it fills a unique place in the tennis calendar, acting as a warm-up for the Australian Open.
As a result, the Adelaide Open 1 is an important litmus test for how various players are performing after the off-season and ahead of one of the biggest events of the tennis year. Last year it was Gael Monfils who won the tournament, but he won’t be back to defend his title in 2023. A new champion will be crowned – read on to see who we think it will be.
Betting Predictions for Adelaide International 2023
For those who like to bet on tennis online, here are the best bets our experts have identified to place on the Adelaide International 1 this week:
Winner to Come From First Quarter @ 1.72 (8/11)
Taking odds of 1.72 (8/11) for the winner to come from the first quarter is an excellent bet. This is because Novak Djokovic, the overwhelming favorite to win this tournament, is in the first quarter. Djokovic was running hot in the last two months of 2022, winning the Nitto ATP Finals, making the final of the Paris Masters, and winning in Astana and Tel Aviv as well. He’s historically virtually unbeatable in Australia, and there’s a reason he’s such a heavy favorite in Adelaide.
However, the odds for Djokovic to win outright are the exact same as the odds for a winner to come from the first quarter. As a result, taking this bet instead of one on Djokovic will only increase your chances of a win. While it’s most likely this bet will come to fruition through a Djokovic win, you’ll also be putting money on Denis Shapovalov to win, the seventh seed and recent Top 10 player, as well as the likes of a home favorite Jordan Thompson and young star Mikael Ymer.
Unseeded Finalist @ 3.00 (2/1)
With only eight seeds in this draw of 32, plenty of threats lurking have not made the top eight cut-offs. One of these could easily make a deep run to the final, particularly in the second half of the draw, which is more open.
Andy Murray is one of these players, drawn in the third quarter. Murray is currently No.49 in the world but is a three-time Grand Slam winner and former World No.1. After being plagued by injuries the last three years, Murray has shown glimmers of his old self in the past 18 months. Refreshed after the off-season, there’s every chance Murray could make a deep run in Adelaide. Other unseeded threats are his first-round opponent, Sebastian Korda, as well as NextGen star Jack Draper, former Top 10 player Richard Gasquet, and home favorite Jordan Thompson.
2023 Adelaide International 1 Betting Tips
Those who like a slightly higher return punt at the online bookies might want to look at taking this riskier but more lucrative bet at the Adelaide International 1:
Lorenzo Sonego to Defeat Daniil Medvedev @ 6.00 (5/1)
Since winning the US Open in 2021, Daniil Medvedev has not been at his best. The former World No.1 is currently No.7 in the world and the third seed in this tournament and is slated to play the unseeded Italian Lorenzo Sonego in the first round.
While most major bookies have Medvedev as a heavy favorite here, this might be a good bet to go against the odds. Sonego has a reputation for pulling off upsets against the Top 30 players, finishing 2022 with back-to-back wins against Denis Shapovalov and Francis Tiafoe. The 27-year-old will be playing freely against Medvedev, who lost his last four matches in a row in 2022. Four times last year, the Russian lost in the first round of a tournament – there’s a good chance he’ll add to that number this week.

- Lorenzo Sonego to Defeat Daniil Medvedev @ 6.00 (5/1)
Tennis is well and truly back in 2023, with the first of two Adelaide ATP 250 tournaments kicking off this week. While the event is widely viewed as a warm-up for the Australian Open, it also happens to be one of the most stacked ATP 250 draws in history, with a plethora of Top 15 players. Novak Djokovic is primed to win and is likely will make a triumphant return to Australia, but not before having some tough competition.
