The Australian Open could be on the move after calls to change the date from Rafael Nadal amongst a chorus of complaints about the Melbourne weather furnace.

Online bookmaker sportsbet has begun taking wagers on where the next destination could be for the first Grand Slam of the year with Sydney the $2.50 favourite.

Brisbane is paying $3.00 ahead of Perth ($4.00), Hobart ($6.00), Adelaide ($21) and Canberra ($34).

For somewhere unusual, atop Mt Hotham where the temperatures would no doubt be cooler is a $101 chance while inside Bernard Tomic’s bachelor pad is the $1001 outsider!

“Sydney is the sporting capital of Australia so it’s no surprise to see it top the betting as the favourite,” said’s Will Byrne.
