In addition to football, tennis is also extremely popular for betting. In this sport too, there are almost weekly matches and tournaments that you can bet on.
Besides the fact that it is an individual sport, and therefore there are no teams apart from the doubles, there is also played on three different surfaces, which gives an extra dimension to the matches. For example, they play on grass, but also on gravel and hard court. Every surface has its own specialists. And that is exactly what makes tennis betting so interesting.
The biggest tournaments in tennis are, for both men and women, the four ‘Grand Slams’: the Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open. These are held annually. In addition, you can also bet on the ATP tournaments with the men and the WTA tournaments with the women.
Although it gives nice odds, betting on lower level tennis is often discouraged as the matches here are very unpredictable. In addition to the Grand Slams, the best eight men and women compete annually in the ATP and WTA finals. For the men this tournament has been in London in recent years and for the women in Singapore.
Of course you can bet on who will win at the tournaments and matches, but in tennis there is a lot more to bet on. You can also bet on the number of games or sets that a match will last.
In most tournaments, a match lasts a maximum of three sets, but in men’s matches at Grand Slams, the matches can last as long as five sets. So if you think that two players are very well matched, it is smart to bet on many sets or games.
Among tennis superstars, the three greats in today’s tennis are Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The first two in particular are really huge legends in tennis.
