Tennis is truly a year round sport with the menís and womenís tours proving more popular than ever with punters. There are big tournaments on a weekly basis all around the world making it the ideal sport from a betting point of view. There are a number of fascinating ante-post markets for the tennis tournaments as well as excellent in-play prices for punters to take advantage of on a match-by-match basis. The key for punters is to get the best value for their money when they are having a tennis bet and that is exactly where the live odds service will make for essential viewing. The live tennis odds will be able to compare the odds from all the major online bookmakers in the UK and Ireland which will include both the ante-post and the crucial in play markets.
Much like golf, the tennis betting for the year is centred around the four Major Championships or ĎGrand Slamsí as they are known. The Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open are fantastic tournaments with the men and women playing at the same venue and there are always many markets on offer from the bookmakers. The live odds comparison tables are in their element during a Grand Slam with the prices updated on a minute-by-minute basis as the big players take to the court. The In-Play prices are always available during the Grand Slam matches with punters able to follow the market of a particular match as it happens in real time.
The ATP Menís Tour is going through something of a boom at the moment with the top four players in the world dominating the game. Punters will see Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray towards the top of the betting at most tournaments and if they are playing well they are hard to stop. As well as the Grand Slams, the main tournaments on the ATP Tour are the Masters Series Events which are played on different surfaces around the world. The betting takes on a different feel as we move from the hard courts to the clay and to grass through the year and it has a major effect on the prices. The Spanish and South American players will be ones to watch on the slow clay while the players with the bigger serves will be ones to follow through the quick courts of the grass court season.
The era of dominance from Serena Williams is now at an end which means that the ladies tour is now wide open in terms of betting. There is now value to be had all the way down the market when it comes to the big WTA Tournaments with five or six players towards the top of the rankings beating each other on a regular basis. The Live odds service will be the place to find the best value through the season with the bookmakers constantly adjusting their prices in such a competitive sport. There is a new breed of eastern European players for punters to follow in the betting through the season with the likes of Petra Kvitova and Victoria Azarenka in particular proving popular players.
