Few would begrudge Nick Kyrgios a beer at the Australian Open and don’t worry there would be plenty of Aussies ready to shout the tennis star

Kyrgios is at the top of Australian Open novelty markets, with the Aussie at $3.00 to down a beer at a post-match press conference.

A lot of Aussies are in Nick’s corner now. He’s very popular with punters and we’re tipping more cheers than jeers when Nick steps on court.

Kyrgios, who has pledged $200 to the bushfire appeal for every ace he serves, is $26 to win the Open. Sportsbet is also matching his aces pledge with $1000 for every rocket he fires off for the tournament.

If chugging a beer helps Nick serve up a few more aces then we’re right behind him.

Novak Djokovic is the $2.25 favourite ahead of Rafael Nadal ($5.50) and Daniil Medvedev ($9.00).

Ash Barty is the $8.00 second favourite to win the Ladies final, behind Serena Williams $5.00. Barty is also $4.50 to be the only Aussie to make a singles final.
