Wimbledon Tennis Betting Guide - Tennis Betting - Wimbledon Betting
The 2009 Wimbledon Tournament is quickly approaching, with all eyes on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The sports betting community, those who wager on tennis (a growing segment), are just getting over a very exciting French Open.
Federer won the French, playing on clay, a surface that he hasn't been able to dominate. Sports bettors were heavy on both Nadal and Federer in the French at online sportsbook, and obviously those who backed Federer were very happy with the result.
Nadal, who loves the clay courts, suffered an injury and wasn't able to deliver on the clash everyone wanted to see between the top two players in the world. His absence also helped clear a path to the title for Federer.
SPORTSBETTING.com reported that more betting volume came in on Nadal then did on Federer, but the same isn't the case at Wimbledon. Federer isn't known as the "King of Wimbledon" for nothing. And the sports betting world is banking on him grabbing his 6th Wimbledon crown. Roger is only one Grand Slam win away from passing Pete Sampras to grab the record for the most men's Grand Slams in history and what better way to accomplish that then on the beautiful green grass at Wimbledon.
Online sportsbooks, like SPORTSBETTING.com, are reporting steady betting volume on Federer, who currently has odds on him of 2-3, making him a big favorite to win the crown.
Nadal isn't the second biggest favorite in this tournament. That distinction belongs to Brit Andy Murray. Just imagine the pressure on this youngster, as he plays in front of the "local" crowd. He is hoping to improve on last year's quarter-final showing. Murray has been getting solid interest from sports bettors at the online sportsbooks, and his current odds are 3-1.
Then comes Nadal at 7-2 Wimbledon odds. Nadal bettors still have fresh in their memory the brilliant win in 2008, in a victory over Federer that some experts call the greatest match of all time.
Can he pull off another big win? We'll see when everything gets going.
