Del Potro tipped for Sydney title
World No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro will complete his Australian Open preparations by competing at the Apia International Sydney before the opening Grand Slam of the season. The Argentinean will lead a strong men’s field in Sydney, beginning the tournament as a strong favourite with Betfair.

With 25 of the world’s top-50 players, del Potro will be joined in the draw with world No. 13 Nicolas Almagro of Spain and Italian world No. 16 Fabio Fognini among the highly-ranked players that will compete for the title in Sydney.

Australian No.1 Bernard Tomic has been given a wild card in order to ensure his participation in the tournament, with his current ranking of No. 51 meaning he currently falls short of automatically qualifying for the draw. But despite a mixed 2013, Tomic is rightly being tipped by Betfair to be among the contenders to win the tournament next month.

Wimbledon semi-finalist and World No. 21 Jerzy Janowicz is another name who will begin the tournament among the favourites for the title, with a powerful serve and big ground-strokes that could be key to victory in Sydney. .

Also returning to the tournament will be former champions Jarkko Nieminen and Dmitry Tursunov, both of whom who are being backed by Betfair customers going into the final warm-up event before the Australian Open.

Apia International Sydney Tournament Director Craig Watson is delighted to have such a strong field assembled for the event.

“To have our defending champions, seven top 10 stars and three Grand Slam champions bound for Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre is an outstanding result for the event and an exciting prospect for Sydney tennis fans,” Watson said.
