There may be tennis events taking place all over the world for both men and women on almost a weekly basis, but it is the four Grand Slams each year that are responsible for the majority of the tennis betting.
Wimbledon odds the most popular of the tennis betting markets
With Wimbledon not only held in the UK each June but also largely referred to as the most prestigious tournament in the world, it is no surprise that tennis betting is popular for the grass-court event. However, there are also two Grand Slams held on hard courts that offer a host of tennis betting opportunities, with the Australian Open held in June and US Open in August. The other Grand Slam is the French Open, held on the clay courts of Roland Garros every June.
Djokovic, Nadal, Murray and Federer lead the men’s tennis betting markets
By winning three of the last four Grand Slams, Novak Djokovic is undoubtedly the dominant force in the men’s game at present, but he will have to remain on the top of his game to beat his leading rivals. Spain’s Rafael Nadal will certainly fancy his chances of winning the French Open, while Roger Federer and Andy Murray also have the credentials to upset the Serbian.
Sharapova and Williams the ones of be on in the women’s tennis betting
Serena Williams arguably remains the best player in the women’s game, despite the fact that she only takes to the court for a small portion of the season. When Williams is following her other interests, Maria Sharapova often proves a formidable opponent, but the likes of Victoria Azarenka, Petra Kvitova and Sabine Lisicki are among the younger players making waves in the game.
