For two weeks each summer, Britain goes crazy for tennis mania as the eldest Grand Slam takes place at the infamous All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club.
Wimbledon Tennis fever has been an annual tradition (excluding war time) since 1877 and always provides a highlight of the sporting calendar. The euphoria finally peaked in 2013 as Andy Murray became the first British Men’s Singles champion since Fred Perry in 1936 and the emergence of a genuine contender has certainly increased the level of excitement surrounding the entire event.
It’s not only hopes of a home-grown champion that make Wimbledon Tennis such a fantastic fortnight. It’s a chance to see the world’s greatest players in action as well as the emergence of new superstars.
Wimbledon Tennis is a cornerstone of British sport and also serves the stand out traditions of everyone’s favourite season. The tournament has gifted tennis fans with some of tennis’ most iconic moments over the years and is bound to provide many more over the coming the years , starting with this summer’s highly anticipated event.
Oh, and it’s also a gambler’s paradise. We cannot wait for June 29.
Wimbledon Tennis Betting – Live In-Play
In addition to be one of the greatest events in the entire sporting calendar, the two weeks of Wimbledon Tennis action offer punters a fantastic opportunity to beat the bookies.
Whilst many will be content with sticking to pre-match selections, particularly in the form of early tournament accumulators, the potential to win big with In-Play betting is an opportunity that should not be overlooked.
Most online bookmakers will be offering the chance to bet on the action live whilst some of them will even stream selected matches in real-time, making it easier than ever to follow the action and locate value in the market.
Tennis is a particularly volatile sport and odds regularly fluctuate as every single service game carries huge importance. Unstable prices will present a number of gems throughout the tournament and the most patient punters should turn plenty of profit throughout the two-week tournament.
Winning Is A Habit, Success Is A Choice
Fail to prepare; prepare to fail. It’s an old cliché that runs true with any tennis tournament and it’s certainly no different when it comes to Grand Slam action at SW19.
Doing your homework is crucial if you want to beat the bookie at Wimbledon and it is well worth checking the various available sources to see which players perform well on what is a very specific surface. Likewise, you should remember to place a little extra focus on grass results when analysing head-to-head records.
Being a Grand Slam, every player will want to be involved so it’s well worth looking to see if any players are carrying slight knocks – especially later in the tournament when fatigue can also kick in.
Tennis is a two horse race, which means odds will often be shorter than with other sports. However, if you study the form efficiently then there is no reason punters can’t get the better of the bookie.
Wimbledon Tennis Betting Tips
As with any Grand Slam event, the majority of bets will present themselves once the draw has been made and throughout the course of what should be a fascinating fortnight. However, there are a couple of open markets even at this premature stage.
Punters can already take an early punt on the winner of both the men’s and women’s events; we think a bet on Novak Djokovic is well worth the risk. The World No.1 has reached three of the past four finals and steps onto in 2015 as the defending champ. There’s not many players capable of beating the Serb right now whilst his recent dominance of Britain’s Andy Murray is another source of confidence.
Another player to look out for could be Nick Kyrgios. The Australian won the Challenge Tour event in Nottingham last year, before announcing himself to the world by beating Rafael Nadal at SW19. Grass seems to be a very favourable surface for the youngster, who has already reached the Australian quarter-final this season, and could enjoy another productive tournament.
