Novak Djokovic Odds: How Many Grand Slams Will Djokovic Win In 2023?
Novak Djokovic has a great chance of overtaking Rafael Nadal in the race to become the most decorated male tennis player of all time this year.
The leading betting sites make him the favourite to win the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
He has already clinched 20 Grand Slams throughout his illustrious career: nine Australian Open titles, two French Opens, seven Wimbledon titles and three US Opens.
That leaves him just one behind all-time leader Nadal, who won last year’s Australian Open and French Open.
However, the Spanish clay court specialist has struggled with injuries in recent months, and Djokovic has an excellent opportunity to surge clear of him in the all-time stakes.
Bookmakers are offering 25/1 on Djokovic winning all four Grand Slams this year, which would be a remarkable feat.
You can alternatively take odds of 7/2 on him winning three Grand Slams, 3/1 on him clinching two, 5/2 on him only winning a single Grand Slam and 7/4 on none.
We have explored his chances in each Grand Slam and delivered our verdict on the number of major titles he will end the year with.
Can Djokovic Win All Four Grand Slams?
Only two players have ever completed a Calendar Slam in men’s singles history: Don Budge and Rod Laver.
Budge pulled it off in 1938, and Australian superstar Laver followed suit by winning the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open in 1962.
Both achievements came prior to the Open era, but Laver then repeated the feat in 1969, cementing his status as one of the greatest players in history.
While he has never won a Calendar Slam, Djokovic has won four consecutive majors: Wimbledon and the US Open in 2015 and then the Australian Open and the French Open in 2016.
He has also come close to a Calendar Slam on three occasions. In 2011, Djokovic won three majors and reached the semi-finals of the French Open.
The Serbian superstar then won the same three majors and finished runner-up at the French Open in 2015.
Finally, he won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon in 2021, before suffering a shock defeat to Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final.
Can he finally secure the elusive Calendar Slam in 2023?
Djokovic deservedly heads Down Under as the odds-on favourite to clinch a 10th Australian Open title this month.
He is the most dominant player in the tournament’s history, having won 91% of his matches on the hard courts at Melbourne Park.
He destroyed his rivals in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and he would probably have done so again last year if he had not been deported due to his vaccine status.
The Serb has now been permitted to return to Australia after his three-year ban was overturned, and he has already beaten Medvedev in a warm-up event.
He should make short work of his rivals at the tournament, so odds of 4/5 with new betting sites on him lifting the trophy look very appealing.
