Australian Open Knowledge

Past Australian Open first round statistics?

In the men’s singles, only three players seeded in the top 15 have been eliminated in the first round in the past five years of the Australian Open. That’s just three hiccups in 75 games. They were Robin Soderling in 2010 when seeded 8, Radek Stepanek in 2010 when seeded 13 and Andy Murray in 2009 when seeded 9.

In the women’s singles meanwhile, only four players seeded in the top 15 have failed to make it past the first round in the past five years of the tournament. Equating to just four hiccups in 75 games. They were Sam Stosur in 2012 when seeded 6, Maria Sharapova in 2010 when seeded 14, Agnieszka Radwanska in 2009 when seeded 9 and Marion Bartoli in 2008 when seeded 10.

Percentage-wise that means there is only a 4% chance that a men’s player seeded in the top 15 will be beaten by their lesser opponent in the first round of the tournament while for the women it is just a 5.33% chance.

As for the top five seeded players in both the men’s and women’s draws – there is a 100% strike rate from the past five years of them winning their first round match at the Australian Open. While these top seeded players may be skinny odds, the first round of the tournament provides a great opportunity to multi them up to get a more substantial dividend.
