Andy Murray

ATP Toronto Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Info
With the Olympic Tennis tournament done and dusted, with a wonderful home soil win for Britain’s Andy Murray over Roger Federer, three of the four semi finalists will be straight back in action this week at the Rogers Cup. So it is off to Canada for the next leg of the ATP Tour and this is the sixth of nine World Tour Masters 1000 events on the calendar. In total, seven of the current world top ten are going to be competing at the Rexall Centre. So it is going to be an interesting week ahead to see if anyone is going to have any Olympic hangovers. The last five World Tour Masters 1000 events have been won by either Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal.

ATP Toronto Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Favourite and Defending Champion
Novak Djokovic is the defending champion of the Rogers Cup and he is back gunning for the defence of his title after surprisingly missing out on an Olympic medal. The Serbian was looking in good shape until he lost a thriller in the semi final against Andy Murray. There was a high level of ball retrieval between the two players, but Murray just had the edge on the day with some flawless tennis. Then Djokovic missed out in the bronze medal match as well, going down against big serving Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro. So if anyone in this Toronto field needs a bounce back performance this week it is going to be Novak Djokovic. He does go as number one seed with a 17-3 record at the event, and he is a two time winner here. There have been only two titles during 2012 for Djokovic, but he will look forward to getting back on the hard court. Novak Djokovic, who is probably going to be the hungriest man in the field. He is trading as 2/1 favourite with online bookmaker Bet365 this week.

Other Contenders
Andy Murray. Will he have the Olympic hangover. What a week it was for him back at Wimbledon. He is going to be the biggest threat to Djokovic in Toronto and while the gold medal should really propel his career forward now in that search for the elusive Grand Slam title, he could be excused for not going all the way here. It was an emotional high for him in taking the gold, so it is going to be tough to pick himself back up to competitive level. A certain degree of weight of expectation must be off his shoulders. Murray goes as second seed in tennis betting this week and he has good form at the event as well. He lifted the title in 2009 and 2010 and is on the opposite end of the draw to Djokovic, so those two coming together will be the projected final. Murray has Canadian star Milos Raonic and John Isner in his quarter, with last year’s losing finalist Mardy Fish and Tomas Berdych possible semi final opponents. A good chance to build on his Olympic success but trading at 3/1 with online bookmaker Bet365.

Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga will bring his busy, competitive game to Toronto. Tsonga is in the top half of the draw, which suggests that he will have to get past Novak Djokovic at the semi final stage. Tsonga lost out in straight sets against Djokovic at the London Olympics, as he was outclassed and overpowered by a dominant Djokovic. The Frenchman has the ability to raise his game on occasion and really push the big four hard. Sadly it doesn’t happen often enough and how easily he was brushed aside by Djokovic at Wimbledon suggests that he won’t go all the way. An outside shot.

Juan Martin del Potro will have had mixed emotions walking away from the London 2012 Olympic Games with a bronze medal around his neck. The powerful Argentinian was involved in the longest ever Olympic match against Roger Federer in the semi finals. The final set just went on and on and on, and all credit to Del Potro who really was looking to take the game to Federer, but just couldn’t convert his chances against the world number one. The former US Open champion looked good though and although it was a disappointing manner in which to go out after such an epic match, he should take heart that he punched pound for pound with the best in the world. Del Potro goes in Djokovic’s quarter and a meeting between those two this week would truly be fascinating

Best Outside Bet
Canada’s own Milos Raonic, the youngster with the monster serve. When Raonic gets his power game going, he is pretty hard to stop. Some of the big names in the world have found that out already this season. Has only been seeded sixteenth, which puts him on course for a quarter final match with Andy Murray, which means that if Murray is still celebrating his Olympic win and isn’t focused, then Raonic will be the biggest benefactor. Raonic has two tour titles this year.

AEGON Championships Tennis Betting Info
This is pretty much just know as the form guide for Wimbledon, as players start to make their transition from the clay court swing of the season onto grass. The Queen’s club is a very popular location of course, and it gives British tennis fans a good look at some of the home grown talent. There is only one of the big four in attendance and that is Andy Murray, who is back to defend his title.

AEGON Championships Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Andy Murray has done very well at this event, and is setting his stall out to win Queens for the third time in four years. Clearly not a bad record then, and after falling to David Ferrer in the quarter finals of the French Open, and after having back problems at the Grand Slam, we should see a better Murray here. He is more suited to the grass than clay, that is for sure, and he will get more response from the ball on the quicker surface. Murray beat out Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final last year, being accused of showboating by the Frenchman. Top seed in the world and really should be back in the final here and gearing up for Wimbledon. Murray is priced at 13/8 with BetFred.

 

Online Bookmaker Promotion
Place a single bet on the outright market for the AEGON Championships, and if tournament favourite Andy Murray goes on to win the tournament you will get your lost stakes refunded. This applies to bets on the markets applied before Andy Murray plays his first match of the tournament, which will be on Wednesday. So head to BetFred and take advantage of this tennis betting promotion. Online bookmaker BetFred offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account.

Other Contenders
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga put on a great show here last year, and was the start of a good grass court season for him actually. Like Murray, the Frenchman was ousted of the French Open at the quarter final stage, but after reaching the final at Queens at the first attempt in 2011, he should be confident of having a strong run at the title. It is not a high quality field, and Tsonga is one of the best ones in it. Tsonga has one title to his name this season, earned right at the start of the season with a win in Doha. The final of Queens last year was the last time he and Murray met, and Murray holds a 5-1 head to head record over the Frenchman, including wins in both of their grass court meetings. So Tsonga makes a strong second favourite at a price of 5/2 with BetFred. Obviously in the other half of the draw to Murray, so we could see a repeat of last season’s final.

As mentioned, it is not a strong field in particular, but there are tricky players for the big guns to watch out for. Janko Tisparevic is a good, crafty player but the world number eight has never been past the third round. However, the Serbian is a much improved player over the last twelve months and a decent candidate given the depth of the field at Queens. Andy Roddick is the player in the field with the best record at Queens though, and is a four time winner of the event. The last time he won it was back in 2007, and while he is a great grass court player, Roddick has struggled over the last couple of years with both injury and form. Potential to pull of a shock, but overall is not as strong as he should be. There’s Marin Cilic and Feliciano Lopez both in the draw as well, with Cilic perhaps representing the stronger option of the two. They are both very good journeymen and capable of picking up lower tiered tournaments in fields like this, but it doesn’t happen often enough.

Best Outside Bet
Frenchman Gilles Simon, he had a decent clay court swing of the season, picking up a title. He has had his moments about top ranked players during his career, but ranked 13th in the world, his threats are not consistent enough. Solid player. Ranked 13th and could be a likely semi final opponent for Murray if they get that far.

Latest AEGON Championships Tennis Betting Prices at BetFred
Andy Murray 13/8, Jo Wilfred Tsonga 5/2, Janko Tipsarevic 10/1, Marin Cilic 10/1, Andy Roddick 16/1, Gilles Simon 201/, Ivo Karlovic 14/1, Feliciano Lopez 25/1, Sam Querrey 33/1

John Isner

 

ATP Nice Tennis Betting Info
Well it will be a bit of a quieter week on the men’s circuit for tennis betting as we head towards the French Open next week. After two big tournaments in Italy and Spain on clay, the big guns will be resting up. Rafael Nadal continued his dominance on clay, beating Novak Djokovic for the second time on the red stuff this season already. We stay on the regular clay surface for our trip to Nice, France this week, for the Open de Nice Cote d’Azur. There is not a grand deal or top draw talent, but there are a few stand out names in the average field, which will make for some nice tennis betting options. Don’t forget the value of betting live in play as well at events like this.

ATP Nice Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Spain’s Nicolas Almagro triumphed here last season, in what was his 10th ATP Tour title. Like most Spaniards, Almagro is good on clay, and the world number 14 won the event at his first crack. So he will make a decent punt here, because note of the other runners in the field have much history history here, neither are they stand out quality players on the red stuff. So Spain could yet again rule over clay this week. Almagro won in Sao Paulo and then reached the final of Beunos Aires on clay, so he is pretty handy on the surface. He was having quite a solid season, but hasn’t been able to get past the round of sixteen in any of his last four events on clay. However, those four events were high quality fields, this one, not so much, so Almagro is worth a punt at 3/1 with BetFred.

ATP Nice Tennis Betting Favourite
Well, Nicolas Almagro also goes off as favourite in ATP Nice tennis betting, because of the reason’s stated above. He’s not the highest ranked player in the field, but his clay court preference should take him deep.

Other Contenders
Big American John Isner has decided to have a French Open warm up here. He has yet to get a title under his belt this season, and the world number 10 will fancy his chances here against an average field. Isner did have a great run at Indian Wells when he lost to Roger Federer in the final, and that was the best result of the season so far. Isner did also make it to the final of Houston as well, in a lower level tournament, and he lost there to Juan Monaco. So he has been knocking on the door and a win here would set his confidence up nicely for the French Open. Because of his height, his serve will be be his biggest weapon as usual. But there is more to his game than that, he has quite a deft touch when he comes into the net. Power is his prime weapon though and should take him at least to the semi’s here.

Gilles Simon returns to his city of birth this week. The Frenchman already has a title under his belt this season and he will make a decent bet here. Simon has won 10 ATP World Tour titles in his career and two of them have been in France. A huge tennis betting trend there which is hard to ignore. This is his debut at Nice though strangely enough. Like Almagro his performance has been dropped away over the last couple of events. But his most noticeable performances have come on clay this season, winning in Bucharest and hitting the semi finals of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Monte Carlo as well (losing out to Rafael Nadal). So this is the level of tournament where the Frenchman should go well.

Frenchman Gael Monfils will also be backed well by home support. Monfils is an energetic entertainer and reached the quarter final here in his only previous appearance back in 2010. He has been in two finals this year, both in Doha and Montpelier but he has been unable to convert as yet. He hasn’t been one of the busier players on the ATP Tour, so should be pretty fresh. His sheer athleticism keeps him touch with opponents and if you are looking for something maverick, then the world number thirteen is usually the one to turn too. Will enjoy being in front of the French crowd and playing up to them and therefore makes a decent punt.

Best Outside Bet
Not too deep of a field this week at all, Hard to pick a really decent outside bet from this quality of field. However, teenager Bernard Tomic is looking for his first Tour title and is usually gives his all out there and is an emerging talent (you may remember him from his Australian Open semi final against Andy Murray this year). He may be worth looking at, or perhaps Italian Fabio Fognini. He went to the final of Bucharest this season on clay, where he was beaten by Gilles Simon.

Latest ATP Nice Tennis Betting Prices at BetVictor
Nicolas Almagro 5/2, Gilles Simon 4/1, John Isner 3/1, Gael Monfils 7/1, JC Ferrero 14/1, Bernard Tomic 14/1, Thomaz Belluci 20/1, Fabio Fognini 25/1

Rafael Nadal

ATP Mutua Madrid Open Tennis Betting Info
One of the big clay court tournaments outside of the French Open swings into action on May 6th from the Magic Box in the Spanish capital. This is an important warn up for the French open and there has been a big change in the way the event looks. That is because Madrid has gone blue, switching up the traditional red court for the rather unorthodox blue, the kind of colour you see on hard court surfaces. There is no great reasoning behind this other than a yellow ball is easier to see against the blue background, and it is actually a good enough reason because that is why the Australian and US Opens are held on blue surfaces. It is now over to the players to see if it actually plays any different to the red clay. Both Rafael Nadal and Samantha Stosur seem to both think that the moves was a mistake. This is because blue clay is manufactured differently to red clay, so it is essentially a new surface.

ATP Mutua Madrid Open Tennis Betting Defending Champion
World number one Novak Djokovic is the man who is returning to Madrid as the defending champion. The Serbian claims that the best clay court title of his career came here last year, when he out-played Rafael Nadal in the final. It was an incredible turn around last season when Djokovic was getting the better of Nadal on clay, but clay of course is Nadal’s surface. Djokovic’s triumph over Nadal last season here snapped a 37 unbeaten streak on clay Djokovic already has two titles under his belt for the season, winning the Australian Open and in Miami. As the season gears up towards the French Open, Djokovic last stepped out at Monte Carlo a couple of weeks ago, where he lost to Rafael Nadal in the final. So are the tables turning back towards the Spaniard? Djokovic is second favourite at 7/4 with SkyBet.

ATP Mutua Madrid Open Tennis Betting Favourite
They may be, because Rafael Nadal starts as favourite at Evens with SkyBet. Nadal has been given a bit of an advantage as well, because Andy Murray pulled out ahead of the tournament with a back injury, which means that Nadal gets to avoid another big four player until the final. That should put him in good stead, as well as the back to back wins on clay already this season. Nadal triumphed easily in Monte Carlo over Novak Djokovic, and then followed it up with a win in Barcelona after taking out David Ferrer in the final. So it has been a a good month for Nadal, who, once again has come to life for the season on clay. Yes, the clay may be new at Madrid this year, but Nadal has to go in as favourite because of his form. The Spaniard has won the Madrid Open twice before in 2005 and 2010 and holds a 24/7 record at the event.

Other Contenders
Roger Federer steps out onto clay for the first time this season in Madrid, and like Nadal and Djokovic, is a previous winner of the tournament. The Swiss superstar landed the title the first time it was switched over to clay, back in 2009. Federer has been in solid form, right from the start of the season, and he rattled off three back to back titles, in Rotterdam, Dubai and Indian Wells to set his season alight. He didn’t get going in Miami though, crashing out in the round of 32 to Andy Roddick. Still, he should be well rested and while clay isn’t his best surface, he reached the final of the French Open last season with some wonderful technical play and should be a threat here. He will be on course though to meet Novak Djokovic in the semi final, which will likely be the set-up to face Nadal in the final.

Spaniard David Ferrer has to be considered as a strong contender as he has three titles under his belt for the season and two of them have come on clay. He also got to the final of Barcelona, where he faced Nadal again, but again he was shot down by the former world number one. So he will make a decent outside shot. He is in the same quarter of the draw as Roger Federer, which means that he will likely have to go through the Swiss man, as well as Novak Djokovic at the semi final stage. So a tough run here, but like Nadal, Ferrer is a clay court specialist and worth considering. Great player, great tenacity and able to grind opponents down. Excellent on clay.

Because Rafael Nadal looks to have the second half of the draw to himself, it may just be worth dipping into his half of the draw (especially in the quarter which he is not in) just to pick out an outside contender. From there the most obvious contender is Jo Wilfried-Tsonga who goes off as fourth seed for the event. He bombed badly at the BMW Open in Munich recently, when he should have been one of the front runners. He crashed out in the first round there and so needs a bounce back performance Other names like John Isner and Alexandr Dolgopolov are floating around in Tsonga’s quarter.

Best Outside Bet: As it generally is, it will be Juan Martin Del Potro. The Argentine has a decent shot here because he is in the easiest quarter of the entire draw. Wouldn’t be too surprised to see him have a good run at the semi finals here, but unfortunately for him, Rafael Nadal would be waiting in that semi final. But with his heavy hitting and recent decent form this season, Del Potro is capable of winning the quarter he is in.

Tennis - Juan Martin Del Potro (Argentina)

It is a busy week on the ATP Tour for your tennis betting this week. None of the big four are out in action across the three events that are taking place, so instead we will focus on the favourites for each of the three. The big Madrid Open is coming up next week, so this week is all about building form and momentum ahead of that, and of course, the French Open at the end of the month.

Estoril Open
Juan Martin del Potro is the top option in the field for your tennis betting at the Estoril Open. The Argentinean is the highest ranked player in the field. This is the first time we have seen the big serving Del Potro on the regular circuit clay this season. He did win a couple of David Cup matches on clay to put Argentina into the semi finals, but this is his first tournament of 2012. However, he is the defending champion of the Estoril Open. He is easily the best player outside of the big four, and therefore he should be able to eat up the lower quality of field that he goes up against in Portugal this week. This is first tournament since Miami, and the weight of his massive serves should see him power through. Every chance of defending his title successfully here. Should be trading around Evens at BetFair. The closets contenders are the likes of Richard Gasquet and Stanislas Warwinka. Again, Del Potro should tear this event up.

ATP Belgrade
It is a bit of pull a name out of the hat type job for your tennis betting at the ATP Belgrade. This is because five of the top eight seeds are making their debut at the event. Only Poland’s Lukasz Kabot has any final history out of the top eight, as he finished runner up in 2009. So, tournament history is thrown out of the window for your tennis betting here. Tough to pick a winner, but would look at Spain’s Pablo Andujar. Spaniards are born and bred on clay, pretty much, and Andujar picked up a clay court title in Morocco earlier in the year too. She he makes the strongest case for going all of the way. Argentina’s David Nalbandian may be the best shot of the lot though, as he has been putting in some decent performances this year, such as a quarter final place at Indian Wells, and a semi in Buenos Aires on Clay. Nalbandian edges thins in the betting market at 9/4 with Bet Victor.

ATP Munich BMW Open
Well, no Argentinean in the mix to make it a treble this week alongside Del Potro and Nalbandian. The outright favourite for ATP Munich is Jo Wilfried Tsonga, who is short at 11/4 at BetFred. The world number five makes his debut at the event, which is also on clay. Tsonga has been solid enough, as expected, with a clutch of quarter final appearances this season, and he racked up a win Doha right at the start of the year. He hit the quarter finals on clay in Monte Carlo recently, where he lost out to Gilles Simon. Always going to be a threat in a field which isn’t particularly strong at the BMW Open. The other top option in the field is going to be Feliciano Lopez. Lopez is another of the Spanish clay court specialists and would expect him to go well. This is his debut in Munich too, but he reaches the semi’s of Houston on clay, and put David Ferrer hard at Barcelona last week in the quarter finals. Strong option alongside Tsonga.

Rafael Nadal

ATP Barcelona Open Tennis Betting Info
It is the 60th year of the Barcelona Open at the Real Club de Tenis, which is Spain’s oldest tennis club. This is a World Tour 500 event and therefore the big players turn out for the ranking points on offer. This is the big Spanish tennis event of the calendar, and naturally a lot of home support will be heading towards Rafael Nadal. More importantly, this is a high level clay court tennis event, and with the French Open at Roland Garros on the horizon, this is the big primer for the second Grand Slam of the season. So expect a big event and look for form ahead of the Grand Slam.

ATP Barcelona Open Tennis Betting Defending Champion
Spaniard Rafael Nadal is the defending champion, as he won his crown back last year. Just out of note, Spaniards have won this event for the last nine editions so that should trend your betting on its own. Nadal’s triumph last year was his sixth Barcelona title in seven years. Nadal showed up brilliantly at Monte Carlo on the weekend, totally demolishing Novak Djokovic in the final of the event. That was his eighth Monte Carlo title, also on clay. So he is truly the master on the red stuff, without any doubt. Rafael Nadal goes as firm 2/5 Totesport favourite for the event, and with his win on the weekend, it looks as if he is going to be the main man again.

ATP Barcelona Open Tennis Betting Favourite
Well, Nadal is the outright favourite and no-one is going to step up and argue that fact. Only Nadal and Andy Murray out of the big four are in attendance this week, and they wouldn’t meet until the final. So there really is nothing too much to worry about in the draw ahead for Rafael Nadal. Janko Tipsarevic could be a possible quarter finalist, while Fernando Verdasco, who won the event in 2010, could be a semi final opponent for Nadal. But this is Nadal on clay, at a tournament which has dominated and so, clear favourite against the field.

Other Contenders
Andy Murray is back for another crack on clay after failing to make it to the business end of Monte Carlo last week. This is the fourth time he has contested Barcelona and he is only carrying a 1-3 match record into the event. That goes up against Nadal’s 30-1 record for the Barcelona Open. Not even close. Andy Murray is least comfortable on clay and doesn’t look as if he is quite ready to deliver the goods just yet either. Crashed out of Monte Carlo at the quarter final stage against Tomas Berdych in which Murray was arguing with his self and getting frustrated with his game. Don’t really expect him to go all the way and rip this title off Nadal.

Spain’s David Ferrer on the other hand, does represent good value. Ferrer has been to the final three times in the past four seasons, and like Nadal, he is another great clay court specialist Ferrer has a 21-9 match record in Barcelona, and he has to make up for a hugely disappointing early exit in Monte Carlo. All three of his final visits in Barcelona have been undone by Rafael Nadal, and they can’t meet until the final again this season. It means that Ferrer is in the same half of the draw as Andy Murray and the Spaniard should have the upper hand over the Brit on clay.

With Fernando Verdasco and Nicolas Almagro in the field, can anyone really step up and break the Spanish dominance of Barcelona? Well, would take a look at Tomas Berdych, who reached the final of Monte Carlo on the weekend, would have been worth a look, but he has withdrawn through illness. It is hard to pick out any other winner in the field really, because if Nadal doesn’t come through the top half, and Andy Murray, Fernando Verdasco and David Ferrer isn’t fighting out in the bottom half, then it will be a big surprise.

Best Outside Bet
Well, anyone beyond Nadal, Murray and Ferrer is going to be an outsider. It makes Verdasco the top of the outsiders, but we should look at Janko Tipsarevic He could line up against Nadal in the quarter finals and that is about his limit at the moment. Still, a scrappy player who never stops pushing and if Nadal is tired by that point, the Tipsarevic could pounce. This is only his second visit to Barcelona, his first coming back in 2009, so no great history. Just a shot in the dark for the dark horse.

Latest ATP Barcelona Open Tennis Betting Prices
Rafael Nadal: 2/5 at BetFred
David Ferrer: 9/1 at Boylesports
Andy Murray: 10/1 at Boylesports
Nicolas Almagro: 25/1 at BetFair
Fernando Verdasco: 33/1 at Bet365

ATP Indian Wells Tennis Betting Info
This is the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event of the new season (the first of nine) and because of the high points on offer for the world ranking, this curtain raising 1000 event has really attracted a lot of attention. The stars come out for the ATP World Tour Masters1000 events in full force, because these are the highest tiered events behind the Grand Slams themselves. Actually called the BNP Paribas Open, most tennis fans know it simply as Indian Wells, with the event being held out in California. So we can expect a thrilling tournament to come as the season kicks into high gear again, and that means a wealth of tennis betting opportunities across next week, leading up to the final. Will the resurgent Roger Federer have a big say this time around? Will Nadal be able to hit his best form again? Will Andy Murray claim another ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title, or will world number one Novak Djokovic storm the field again?

ATP Indian Wells Tennis Betting Defending Champion
The defending Champion is, and with little surprise, Novak Djokovic. Last season’s final at Indian Wells was a great match, in which Nadal took the look, but Djokovic hit back to take his tenth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title. His triumph here last season was the second time that he has won in Indian Wells, having won it back in 2008 over Mardy Fish. Perhaps the biggest feature of Novak Djokovic’s run this year at Indian Wells, is the likely semi final clash against World Number Four Andy Murray. Murray became the first man to beat Djokovic this season, as the Scot took down the Serb in the Dubai semi final in straight sets. So Djokovic will probably be out for a bit of revenge out in the desert, and that expected semi final surfaces, it will be the third Djokovic v Murray semi final this year. But for now, Djokovic, the world number one and 2012 Australian Open Grand Slam winner is the favourite in ATP Indian Wells tennis betting, trading ahead of the field at a market best priced of 9/5 with Boylesports. Despite that loss in Dubai, Djokovic is still going to be the man to stop, and his draw, up until the semi finals, looks very comfortable

ATP Indian Wells Tennis Betting Favourite
Novak Djokovic, so the defending Champion is also the favourite. So that proves his current great form and his tournament history, which should be enough to influence your ATP Indian Wells tennis betting, Djokovic holds a 22-4 match record at the event, with two titles.

Other Contenders
Well, Roger Federer, who has rediscovered his winning touch this season with a couple of titles already, will want to prove that he can still win these top title. Federer comfortably beat Andy Murray in the final of Dubai last week and Federer is a three times Indian Wells winner. He won it in straight years from 2005 through 2006 and he holds an impressive 33-8 match record at the event. Is playing very well at the moment, and although he missed out on the Australian Open when he ran into Nadal in the semi finals, he looks ready for real title run here. However, you need to assess Federer’s draw, which is the hardest quarter out of the big four’s. Federer has David Ferrer, Juan Martin del Potro and Milos Raonic all in his quarter. But should he prevail, Rafael Nadal will likely be Federer’s semi final opponent in ATP Indian Wells tennis betting. So we have that treat to look forward too as well, Nadal has been quiet this season so far, with only appearances at Doha and the Australian Open. Nadal lost the Australian Open final to Djokovic in that epic match, but he pushed the world number one all the way, which suggest the Spaniard is getting back close to his best. He should be well rested for a good run in California next week, and like Djokovic is a two times winner of the event, lifting the Indian Wells crown in 2007 and 2009. Nadal holds a 31-5 match record at Indian Wells. It should be a comfortable run to the semi’s for Nadal, with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga his biggest threat at the quarter final stage. So to Andy Murray. The only one of the big four not to have won Indian Wells, so he has incentive to carry on his good form this season. Murray has gone out in the second round of Indian Wells for the last two years, so he needs to get past that mental block. He has been playing very well though, his service game against Djokovic in Dubai was superb, but it then deserted him in the final completely against Federer. But he should have a lot of confidence from beating Djokovic and his only realistic threats in his quarter is Mardy Fish and John Isner, the world eight and eleven respectively. Murray does seem to be far more consistent this year, and, just like the rest of the big four, will be expected to be putting in a semi final appearance. Murray holds just a 15-6 record at Indian Wells though, his best effort was losing finalist in 2009 to Rafael Nadal.

Outside Bet
Juan Martin del Potro. The big Argentinean would be chomping at the bit to get back at Roger Federer again. Federer has beaten Del Potro in the quarter finals of the Australian Open, the final of Rotterdam and the semi final of Dubai. The only time he hasn’t ran into Federer this season, Del Potro won the title in Marseille. The best of the rest, and although many will be considering Jo-Wifried Tsonga as the outside bet, Del Potro has beaten him twice this season.

ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting Info
The ATP is the United Arab Emirates this week with this high profile tournament taking place. It is an ATP World Tour 500 event, meaning that there is some big ranking points on offer, and it is has historically been an event which has attracted some of the biggest names in the men’s game. This year is no exception, with three of the world’s top four players in attendance. The only big gun missing is Spaniard Rafael Nadal who misses the event. This is a hard court surface tournament and ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting and it is an event which has been dominated by Novak Djokovic in recent years. So, with the way things are in the men’s game, it is likely that we are going to be looking at a three way chase for the title.

There are live tennis streams from the ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships this week, from online bookmaker Bet365. The highly rated online bookmaker are streaming the live action for their customers, through their great live sports streaming service.

ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting Defending Champion
Is it world number one Novak Djokovic who is the defending Dubai Champion, and he has won the event for the last three years running now. The Serbian is in the UAE and gunning for his fourth straight title. He triumphed over Roger Federer in last year’s final and he holds a 20-2 match record at the tournament on his way to the three titles. Little surprise that the Djoker is going to be one of the leaders of the pack for the event, and surprisingly this is only the second event of the year for Djokovic. His only previous outing was at the Australian Open where he successfully defended his title, so he will be refreshed for his attempt at Dubai, a tournament which he clearly enjoys. After a successful first round opener, Djokovic has now won sixteen straight matches at the event. You back up his world number one status with the incredible tournament history and the Serbian makes for a pretty strong option in ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting.

ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting Favourite
The defending champion is also the favourite in the betting market for the event. No great surprise there for anyone really. You could pretty much put anyone in the same draw as Djokovic and the Serbian would be favourite. That’s the status of the man at the moment, and while there is a meeting against Janko Tipsarevic on the cards for the quarter finals, the biggest test would be a semi final clash against number three seed Andy Murray. It takes a lot to go against backing Djokovic whenever he turns up anywhere really. After his comfortable start back into action from the Australian Open, a clear front runner.

Other Contenders
Roger Federer will want to have his big say at this event. After picking up the title in Rotterdam recently, Federer still has ambitions of getting back to world number one. Like Djokovic, Federer has a very impressive record in the ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting, having lifted the title here four times in his career, the most recent being back in 2007. Federer holds a 29-4 match record at the event going into it, and has to be confident after his recent success in the Netherlands, where he beat Juan Martin del Potro in the final. It is Del Potro who is again likely to be the biggest threat to Federer from the bottom half of the draw, and the Swiss superstar makes a good option because Djokovic and Murray will clash in the top half. That leaves Federer to deal with either Jo Wilfried Tsonga or Del Potro on the way to final is his half of the draw. Andy Murray will be looking for a Dubai improvement, as he hasn’t been past the quarter finals here in his past two attempts back in 2008 and 2009. Murray has shown stronger signs of improvement this year and after pushing Novak Djokovic all the way in the Australian Open semi finals this year, he could set up another rematch with the world number one at the semi final stage of ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships Betting. Naturally because Murray has to face Djokovic, that puts him back in the pecking order behind Djokovic and Federer. Argentinean Juan Martin del Potro reached the final of Rotterdam in a busy season so far for him, as he continues to work his way back into the position of being a top four challenger. Del Potro really complements a very strong field here, so too Tomas Berdych, who lifted the title in Montpellier around a month ago, and reached the semi’s Rotterdam. So a good field, but naturally the betting is going to be dominated by Djokovic, Murray and Federer.

Britain’s Andy Murray will have been happy enough with the news that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal failed to make an impact in Doha. Murray is playing in Brisbane ahead of the Australian Open, and after a couple of shaking moments in the first round, Murray powered his way through to the final and the bookies are treating this as Murray v Field. Murray was the only top ten player in the event, and is now faced with a semi final against Bernard Tomic, ranked 42nd in the world. Murray saw off Gilles Muller in the second round, powering through the deciding set 6-0. The Scot then turned on the burners to blaze the challenge of Marcos Baghdatis in the quarter final, taking the match 6-2 6-2 without any hassle. So Murray is favourite to take the title here now, heading the final four and will have been buoyed by Nadal and Federer’s failures in Doha, which could make Murray a bigger threat at the first Grand Slam of the season. It is definitely something to think about for your tennis betting. A title here for Murray would no doubt do his confidence wonders, and with new coach Ivan Lendl behind him, could this be Murray’s big breakthrough year at the Slams?

In the other semi final match of Brisbane, we have Alexandr Dolgopolov v Gilles Simon. Young Russian Dolgopolov will be worth backing here. He is one of the rising talents in the game and would be great to see him in the final against Murray. Dolgopolov is the third seed here (and world number 15) in ATP Brisbane betting, while Simon is the Brisbane second seed (and world number 12). So a tight match should be on the cards, and it should be a match to decide who squares off against Andy Murray in the final. Out of the two, Dolgopolov has been pushed harder in the Brisbane draw than what Gilles Simon has, and that extra bit of resiliency shown already from the Russian, could be the deciding factor against Frenchman Simon, who really hasn’t been tested as of yet.

The ATP Doha tennis betting final pits Jo Wilfried Tsonga v Gael Monfils against each other in a battle of the top French players. It has been an odd start to the new season on both the ATP and WTA sides of the fence, and with the Australian Open just around the corner, it is important to pay attention to these warm up tournaments. We are looking at Jo Wilfried Tsonga v Gael Monfils betting because the two favourites, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal exited at the semi final stage. Everything was being set up nicely for a first Federer v Nadal clash of the season in the final of Doha, but it wasn’t to be. Roger Federer, a four time champion here, pulled out of his semi final clash against Tsonga with a back injury, while Gael Monfils broke his losing streak against Rafael Nadal. Once news that Federer had to retire ahead of his semi final clash, all eyes turned to new favourite Rafael Nadal in the tennis betting. A lot of money would have been lost on the Spaniard, as he couldn’t stand up to a wonderful second set recovery from Monfils. The Frenchman had taken the first set, thanks to converting the only break point of the entire set in the sixth game. After Nadal had raced out to a 4-1 lead in the second set, it looked as if the Spaniard would drive home. But Monfils fired himself up tremendously, got into attack the Nadal serve and came back to take a 5-4 lead and then served the match out. That was the first time in six attempts that Monfils had beaten Nadal.

So which way to turn now in Jo Wilfried Tsonga v Gael Monfils betting? Well the Doha tournament draws to a conclusion and the smarter money will be on Tsonga. He is the highest ranked player out of the two friends, and really stepped up a gear over the last six months.  He will also have benefited from an extra rest from having a walkover in the semi final. Tsonga does also hold a 2-1 head to head record against Monfils, but the last time they met, which was way back in 2010, it was Monfils who took the match then in France. But Tsonga is proving to be a real gritty player at the moment, and is hard to work over as he doesn’t allow opponents time to boss him around from the baseline. So would take Tsonga as the favourite here, he should have more composure and class, while Monfils is a very high energy player and probably had his big tournament game against Nadal.

Jo Wilfried Tsonga v Gael Monfils Doha Tennis Final betting odds
Tsonga to win: 4/5 at BetFred
Monfils to win: 6/5 at Bet365
