These are my top three picks from both the men’s and women’s draw to capture the first Grand Slam of the year. Who are you taking?

Men’s Draw
(1) Rafael Nadal – The top men’s player in the world and 2009 champion will look to become the first man since Aussie Legend Rod Laver to win all four majors in succession. Nadal was forced to retire last year in his quarterfinals match against Andy Murray. Nadal is the favourite to win this year. Will he hold all four Grand Slam titles at once?
Odds: 2.88

(2) Roger Federer – The 16-time major champion and former top-ranked Federer is a four-time Aussie Open champ. He holds the title after defeating finalist Andy Murray in straight sets in ’10. Federer hasn’t been able to successfully defend his Aussie Open title in the past. Will his drive for five give him back-to-back championships?
Odds: 2.92

(4) Andy Murray – Murray came oh so close to winning his first Grand Slam title in 2010 in Melbourne, but fell in straight sets to Federer in the finals. Murray plays his best tennis on hard courts, but hasn’t been able to capture an elusive Grand Slam title. Is this the year Murray finally wins when it counts the most?
Odds: 9.60

Women’s Draw
(1) Caroline Wozniacki – The World No. 1 on the WTA Tour has won twelve singles titles in her career, but has yet to win a Grand Slam. This could be her time to win as five-time winner Serena Williams has pulled out of the tournament. Wozniacki fell to Li Na is the fourth round last year. Will the young Dane’s 13th tour title be her biggest?
Odds: 8.20

(3) Kim Clijsters – Last year at the Australian Open, Clijsters lost to the World No. 20 Nadia Petrova in the third round winning just one game in the worst defeat of her career. Clijsters should use that as motivation and won’t want to be embarrassed like that again in ’11. The Belgian is a solid hard court player, winning three US Open titles, but hasn’t been able to win down under. She’s the outright favourite. Will Clijsters live up to her heavy billing?
Odds: 3.00

(11) Justine Henin – Henin was last year’s runner-up to five-time champion Serena Williams. The 2005 Australian Open winner missed the second half of last year because of injury, but has gotten off to a great start this year and enters this year’s tournament as one of the favourites. With Serena out of the picture this year, will Henin return the glory?
Odds: 6.40
