What is Tennis?

Tennis is a racket sport played all around the World. It is played by an individual against another individual (singles) or between teams of two players each at the two ends of the court. The sport is played with a Racket which is used to hit a hollow rubber ball.

Tennis can be played by both men and women. The sport is organized by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) responsible for the men’s and women’s tours respectively.

Tennis is played in points: Four points win a game, six games win a set and two or three sets win a match.

Service stays at one end for the entire four-point game.

The sequence goes thus:

  • 0 points = love
  • 1 point  = 15
  • 2 points = 30
  • 3 points = 40
  • 4 points = game

History of Tennis

The sport of Tennis has its roots in England and the ancient sport known as Jeu de paume which was invented in France in the 11th century. The sport was first played on Grass before the introduction of other surfaces namely Clay and Hardcourt.

It is important to mention that the invention of modern Tennis is credited to Walter Wingfield, an English man from London. He brought about changes that meant that sports could be played outdoors.

Tennis Rankings

A player’s ability to enter tournaments is predicated on the position on the rankings. The higher the ranking of a player, the higher his or her chances of getting into the more prestigious tournaments.

Players’ rankings are determined by their performance in tournaments like the Grand slams, ATP Tour, WTA Tour, Challengers, etc. The points for a tournament count towards a player’s ranking for a total of 52 weeks after the result.

Some of the players who have enjoyed top rankings are Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Steffi  Graff, Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, and many others.

Tennis Betting 

Betting on Tennis can be rewarding especially if you have very good knowledge of the sport. However, even as an experienced pundit winning bets can be daunting at times.  In this section, we describe the Tennis betting market and options as well as other factors you need to take into consideration when you want to make a Tennis prediction. If you are interested in betting on different sports other than tennis, you can have a look at the array of betting tips we provide on a daily basis.

Set Winner

There are various ways of betting in sets in a Tennis match. Bookmakers allow you to bet on the player who wins a particular set. It could be the first, second or third set in a match.

For instance: 

To win the first set

  • Novak Djokovic 1.57
  • Miomir Kecmanovic 2.25

Over/Under 

Over/ Under betting deals with total sets and game totals. For example, you can bet on whether a match will end with over or under 2.5 sets or even over or under 22.5 games. This is usually advisable when you are not confident in backing a particular player.

Total games Over/Under

This is basically a wager on the total number of games played in a match. For example, if Albert Ramos and Diego Schwartzman are playing a 3- set match the Over/Under betting options be set at 20.5. If there is a likelihood that it will be closely fought and you back over, you need a total of 21 games to win this bet.

If you back Under 20.5 games, the total games must not be up to 21 games. If the total games are higher than 21, then the bet is lost.

Total sets Over/Under

With this, you can place a wager on the total number of sets that will be played in a match. You can bet on Over/Under 3.5 sets. I.e The match to endless with at least 4 sets or less than four sets.

Set Handicap Betting

With set handicap betting, you can bet on whether a particular player will win with the aid of a set handicap. This is closely related to Asian Handicaps in football. For instance, you can bet on a player to win with a -3.5 set handicap or on the other player may be handed a +3.5 set handicap.

If the bookmaker gives a handicap of + 3. 5 games to Grigor Dmitrov and you back it. It means Dmitrov has a head start of 3.5 games. At the end of the match, if the result is 6-7, 6-5 and 4-6 in favour of Andrey Rublev, it means Dmitrov won 16 and Rublev won 18 games. The bet wins because Dmitrov has a total of 16 + 3.5 = 19 compared to Rublev’s 18, this means that the bet won.

Correct Score

In this form of betting, a high level of precision is required. Nearly does not cut it. When you decide to bet on the correct score, you want to predict the exact score of a particular set or the match entirely.

Match correct score

If you decide to bet on the match’s correct score, you will be predicting the exact scoreline of the match. The odds for this are usually huge and they pay handsomely when they land.

Set correct score

Here, instead of predicting the exact score of a match, you will be predicting the final score of a set. It could be the first, second or even the third set. Are you more comfortable betting on football? You can have a look at Football correct score predictions.

 Below are some of the factors you should consider before deciding to bet on a particular market or option in Tennis:

  1. The Court surface – Differences in playing surfaces are a big deal for players in Tennis. A top player no doubt can perform on any surface, but players have different styles of play and they are better suited to some surfaces than the others. For instance, Rafael Nadal is unarguably the best player in history on clay while a player like Novak Djokovic who is not as good on clay can do a job on that surface and he is extremely good on others.
  2. Travel History and Fatigue – Tennis is an all year round sport with players travelling around the world to compete in different tournaments every week. Fatigue could set in at some point. If a player does not have adequate rest that could negatively impact his performance on the court.
  3. BreakPoint conversion and Save Percentage – Big moments can have an effect on the outcome of a Tennis match. Each point counts the same in theory but some are more important. Players like Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal win more breakpoints than most players on the tour, hence, the reason why they win more matches.
