Jamie Murray Australian Open 2023: Odds, next match and predictions

Jamie Murray Australian Open 2023 predictions are given right here. Can he win the tournament this year? Let’s find out.

Jamie Murray Australian Open 2023 Odds

After days of uncertainty, Jamie Murray’s partner for the 2023 Australian Open has finally been announced. Australian Michael Venus will try to join Murray to win the crown. The pair already had a few matches in which they had a good performance and very good feeling.

Jamie Murray is one of the favourites to win the Grand Slam, but for days, there were no odds available, as it was not known who he will be playing with. Now that we know that his partner is Michael Venus, the predictions turn in his favour.

Next Match – Jamie Murray Australian Open 2023

The Murray-Venus pairing was originally set to face Nicolas Mahut and Tim Puetz, but their opponents were changed. Now their opponents will be the Colombian Cristian Rodriguez and the American Hunter Reese. Undoubtedly, the favourites to win this duel are the British tennis player and the Australian. 

Fans of this duo, expect both to breathe and even improve on the results they achieved at the ATP Adelaide, where they reached the final. The Colombian player will have his first official duel with Hunter Reese on his side. It is likely that they lack the coordination to work as a team.

Jamie Murray Australian Open 2023 Outright Winner –

The combination of Murray and Venus made for another Australian Open draw. After their participation in the ATP Adelaide, there are a lot of expectations on them. So far, the pairings of Sinner/Sonego and Heliovaara/Glasspol, have been defeated by Jamie and Michael’s hard work.

Michael Venus already knows what it’s like to reach a Grand Slam final in doubles, but has yet to win. This will serve as motivation, as well as the fact that they have one of the best male duos in the whole tournament.

Jamie Murray Current Form – Last Five Matches

Although Jamie Murray is in the latter stages of his career, he still plays plenty of tournaments. This is also true of his younger brother, Andy Murray. And because of his activity, we can reveal his form over the last five matches:

  • Murray/Venus vs Withrow/Lammons – lost – 7-6, 4-6, 10-12
  • Murray/Venus vs Heliovaara/Glasspool – lost – 3-6, 6-7
  • Murray/Venus vs Brkic/Escobar – won – 7-5, 7-5
  • Murray/Venus vs Sinner/Sonego – walkover (won)
  • Murray/Venus vs Olivetti/Cressy – won – 3-6, 6-3, 10-2

All of these matches have been played during the 2023 season as it happens. So this shows that Jamie Murray has been active during his build-up to the Australian Open. And despite losing in the first round of the ASB Classic this week, he did make the final of the Adelaide International.

Jamie Murray Injury update: Good to go

It doesn’t appear that Jamie Murray is dealing with any injury woes ahead of the 2023 Australian Open. In fact, since he has competed in two tournaments in Australia so far, we’d say he must be feeling good. With that said, doubles players tend to endure fewer injuries compared with singles players. The game isn’t quite as harsh on the body as singles. Adding to that, the longevity of Murray’s career shows that he takes care of himself away from the court.

Jamie Murray Past AO Performances

The first time Jamie Murray graced the courts of the Australian Open was in 2007. However, it would take him until 2011 to make it through the first round of the doubles event. And beyond that, it would take Murray four more years to make it beyond the second round. This means that in 2015, he finally reached the third round of the Australian Open.

Amazingly, while he hadn’t done much in all of the previous Australian Open appearances, he then won the tournament in 2016. This was simply staggering. But then again, this didn’t come out of anywhere. Murray had made the final of the two Grand Slams before the 2016 Australian Open. This included Wimbledon 2015 and the US Open 2015. While Murray fell short on both of those occasions, he obviously learned from his experiences and turned things around.

This win came with the Brazilian, Bruno Soares as his partner, with who he also partnered to win the 2016 US Open. Yet for the next five years, Murray was on a bit of a roller coaster ride at the Australian Open. His results varied from a 1st round exit in 2017 to a semi-finals appearance in 2021. So while he has obviously been successful here in the past, it has been very up and down, to say the least.

Jamie Murray Australian Open 2023 Prediction – potential to go far

Although Murray’s ranking has slipped a bit in recent times, he is still one of the best doubles players in the world in his day. He has a great lefty serve and fantastic hands around the net. Should he partner Venus and they get on a roll in the early rounds, there is no reason that this pairing cannot go deep in the draw. And at the same time, these guys have clearly been playing well together.

They made the finals in Adelaide just last week while picking up some big wins in the process. However, it does depend on where they are placed in the draw as to their potential to make a deep draw run. At the time of writing, this information has yet to be released. But if you consider the fact that Murray has won this title in the past, as well as made a quarter-final and a semi-final appearance, you wouldn’t bet against him.

Another interesting factors to consider here is that Jamie Murray did make the semis in Australia as well as the finals in New York in 2021. This isn’t all that long ago. So if you consider his ‘long term’ form, again, things could go well in Melbourne this year.
