Not everyone has approached the conception of the International Premier Tennis League with the same enthusiasm as founder Mahesh Bhupathi but the controversial four-team tournament, devised to be tennis’ answer to cricket’s Indian Premier League, will finally get under way at the end of this week after 18 months of planning.

The shorter format to be used has been specifically designed for TV audiences but has had to wait for a space in the calendar. Now, of course, is the time that most of the sport’s big names are putting their feet up and persuading some to sacrifice their down time, despite the big appearance fees being offered, has proved troublesome. Both Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova opted out in March’s player auction but have since changed their minds. Exactly how motivated Federer will be remains to be seen as he pulled out of the ATP World Final against Novak Djokovic because of fatigue and played three matches in Switzerland‘s Davis Cup triumph over France last weekend.

There are only four teams in the International Premier League but each will host their opponents on home courts between specific dates meaning all squads will have one home fixture, one away and two on neutral soil. Each match will comprise of five sets with nominated players playing one set each in the five categories – men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, mixed doubles and veteran men’s singles. Federer only plans to play for the Indian Aces in their home matches in Delhi, while Andy Murray is adopting a similar approach for his team the Manila Mavericks. Sharapova is also based in the Phillipines and is another who is unlikely to travel to other venues but Djokovic has said he will play in two rounds of matches for the UAE Royals, based in Dubai, with Serena Williams making the same commitment to the Singapore Slammers.

The Slammers, 3/1 with Unibet and 888sport, could emerge as the challengers to Djokovic’s Royals (5/2 with the same two firms). Tomas Berdych has pledged to play in every match for the Singapore franchise and they look to have a decent line-up down to veteran Andre Agassi. But the Royals have Marin Cilic as well as Djokovic, Caroline Wozniacki, Eugenie Bouchard and Goran Ivanisevic and are just preferred. In fact, it’s a surprise that the Aces are also a best 5/2 (Skybet) given Federer’s busy recent schedule. Manila are 10/3 with Skybet.

The groups are set for the ATP World Tour Finals 2014 which start on November 9th. It was a fascinating race for the top eight places to reach the finals. The players who amassed the most points over the course of the season get the honour of competing. Actually the qualification stretched out to the top nine this season, as Rafael Nadal withdrew himself before the end of the season so that he could go and have surgery.

It has left the two round robin groups set up as Group A with Novak Djokovic, Tomas Berdych, Marin Cilic and Stan Wawrinka. Group B will be made up from Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic. So clearly it is Group B which looks the toughest to get out of, while in Group A, it is probably going to be a straightforward shot for who finishes second behind Djokovic who is 4/9 favourite at Paddy Power to win Group A.

Roger Federer is 3/10 favourite to win Group B, with Andy Murray at 8/13. Those two coming together will produce the top clash in the round robin stage. The top two from each group will move ahead to the semi finals, so plenty of ATP World Tour Finals betting to be enjoyed. So who is heading up the outright market?

Novak Djokovic, who recently won the final ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event of the season in Paris, is looking to win the ATP World Tour Finals for the fourth time and end up as the world number one at the end of the season. Djokovic is 10/11 favourite to win the tournament, with Roger Federer a 7/2 shot behind him. Federer is looking to win the season finale for the seventh time in his career, has only failed to make it to the semi finals once in twelve previous appearances.

The natural shot behind them is Andy Murray, who put together a great stretch of form over closing stages of the regular season. He has never won the ATP season finale, making it to the semi finals three times before. Murray’s group game against Federer is going to be huge, because second place in Group B, is probably going to mean facing Djokovic in the semi’s. Murray lost in Paris recently against the Serbian.

You could snap up an early price of 9/2 in the Name The Finalists Market on it being Djokovic/Federer. Djokovic is 4/11 favourite to Reach The Final, with Federer great value at 5/4 and Andy Murray at 11/4 with online bookmaker Paddy Power.

In a promotion which runs for the entire duration of November 2014, Paddy Power are running a Free Bet Special for tennis betting. Place 5 or more bets of £5 or more on tennis in one day and online bookmaker Paddy Power will give you a free bet of £5 to use the next day!

This is it, as ATP BNP Paribas Masters Paris Tennis betting is the final battleground. An ATP Masters World Tour 1000 event to wrap up the regular season. This is the last chance for players to pick up points and try and make it into one of the eight places that will be rewarded with a spot at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London.

With Rafael Nadal having withdrawn himself for the rest of the season, it means that ninth place in the Race to London is going to be enough, which means that ATP Paris betting could be even more intense this week.

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic will be at the ATP World Tour Finals, but they are still scrapping it out between them to finish the season as World Number One. Djokovic is 810 points ahead of Federer, but with 1,000 up for grabs this week in Paris for the winner, and a potential 1,500 for winning the ATP World Tour Finals in November, the Swiss legend is pushing Djokovic all the way. Djokovic runs into Paris as 7/4 favourite and has won three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments this season.

Reigning Paris champion Djokovic was last in action earlier in the month in Shanghai where he lost in the semi finals against Federer. They are in separate halves of the draw this week, so it could be a highly valuable clash in the final. Federer is 3/1 second favourite at Paddy Power for the victory this week, and kept his great form going with a title in Basel on the weekend. It was a title win which keeps up the pressure on Djokovic and he has been to six ATP World Tour Masters 1000 finals this season, winning two of them. He won the Paris title for the first time in 2011, his only win at the event in his career thus far.

Andy Murray’s presence in the field will make things interesting this week. he has had a busy end to the season in his desperate chase for points, and he is coming on very strongly with three titles in the last five weeks. He is a man in form at the moment and a decent 6/1 shot for the Paris title, the drawbacks being that he is in Djokovic’s quarter of the draw, and he has never been past the quarterfinals of ATP Paris, stopped in the last eight four times in his career. But can his end of season form carry him close?

Kei Nishikori is looking for his first ever appearance in the Barclays ATP World Tour finals, but is looking ahead at one of the tougher quarters ahead, and then there would probably be a semi final against Djokovic & Murray. Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov are all immensely desperate for points to make it London, which should see them all step their games up this week. Of them, Berdych has the most favourable draw ahead of him to have a genuine shot at the title. Berdych won this back in 2005 and is looking for his third ATP title of the season.

ATP BNP Paribas Masters Paris Tennis betting

Novak Djokovic 7/4, Roger Federer 3/1, Andy Murray 6/1, Kei Nishikori 14/1, Tomas Berdych 14/1, David Ferrer 16/1, Stan Wawrinka 18/1, bar 20/1

The penultimate ATP Tour Masters 1000 event serves up a tennis treat this week, with the big guns all vying for some late success in the season. The Shanghai Rolex Masters tennis betting outright winner market is being dominated by Novak Djokovic, not surprising after the Serbian was faultless in Beijing recently, looking his majestic, prolific self. He dropped just the two games in his victory over Tomas Berdych in the final of the tournament, a blistering performance which shocked everyone because of the remarkable standards that the Serbian laid down.

Djokovic is eyeing up the number one spot at the end of the year and the way he is motoring at the moment, then he will likely pip Rafael Nadal to the points. Djokovic is out this week to try and win his third Shanghai Rolex Masters title in a row, holding a 16-2 match record at the event. He has already landed ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events at Indian Wells, Miami and Rome this season, and is gunning for his 20th title at this level.

Rafael Nadal is out again and looking to do better than his quarter final defeat against qualifier Martin Klizan in China last week. Nadal really needs to strike here if he is going to stop Djokovic from finishing as world number one at the end of the year. At least Nadal does have freshness on his side after missing the entire US swing. The tournament in China last week was his first time in action for the Spaniard since Wimbledon. Nadal does have easiest draw ahead of him, raising the probability of a Novak Djokovic v Rafael Nadal final.

Nadal goes a point shorter than Roger Federer in the outright betting market, and he is back after almost a four week lay off. His best performance in Shanghai was a place in the final back in 2010. Andy Murray, who reached the semi finals in Beijing last week, losing against Novak Djokovic, is looking for his third Shanghai title after wins in 2010 and 2010. He needs some valuable points to get himself into the top eight in the Emirates ATP Race to London.

ATP Shanghai Rolex Masters Tennis Betting Odds

Novak Djokovic 6/5, Rafael Nadal 12/5, Roger Federer 7/1, Andy Murray 12/1, Milos Raonic 18/1, Stanislas Wawrinka 8/1, Marin Cilic 18/1, Tomas Berdych 18/1, Kei Nishikori 22/1, bar 25/1.

Andy Murray is all set for a showdown in the quarter finals of the US Open on Wednesday with top seed Novak Djokovic. This of course is a repeat of the 2012 final, which Murray endured to pick up the first Grand Slam title of his career. Going into the Flushing Meadows action this time around, no-one has been giving Murray much of a chance, there’s not been much expectation on him because of his form this season.

It has been a season of finding himself again after recovering from back surgery. Murray is running as heavy underdog at a price of5/2 with Paddy Power for the quarter final meeting. Murray is eighth seed for the tournament and trails the head to head against Djokovic 8-12, including a defeat against the Serbian in their one meeting this year, which was out in Miami.

The last three times they have come together at Grand Slams have all been in the final. Murray won two of them of course, the 2012 US Open final and the 2013 Wimbledon triumph. Both the wins were very long matches, and there are going to be huge questions about Murray’s endurance against Djokovic on Wednesday.

Murray beat Jo Wilfried Tsonga, his first win over a top ten player since Wimbledon last year, in the round of sixteen. Frankly after picking up cramp in his opening match of the tournament, Murray has looked pretty sharp, suggestions that he is getting close to being back on top form.

There were doubts over the form of Novak Djokovic ahead of the tournament, falling to some uncharacteristic defeats, courtesy of some pretty poor play in recent ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events. But he is a champion and has been looking pretty settled, and the Serbian is eyeing up his fifth consecutive appearance in the US Open final, having won it only once before, in 2011. Djokovic is 2/7 favourite to win the match, and even money favourite to win the 2014 US Open.

The Serbian superstar Novak Djokovic won the US Open for the first and only time so far in his career back in 2011. It is without too much surprise that he is heading up the market as the action gears up again, at a price of 6/5 with Boylesports for this year’s tournament.

However, there has been some uncharacteristic stumbles from Djokovic in recent weeks which suggests that he is slipping out of form ahead of the final Grand Slam of the season. Djokovic looked a shadow of his former self in defeats against Jo wilfried Tsonga and Tommy Robredo at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati respectively. You won’t see Djokovic play a worse match than he did against Tsonga in Canada.

So the big question for Novak Djokovic in 2014 US Open betting, is whether or not his class shine through and rise back to the top of his game when it matters most?

Backers of Djokovic will point out the fact that he has appeared in each of the last four US Open finals, plus one back in 2007. That’s a pretty strong record and he clearly has a strong affinity with Flushing Meadows. He has been to the final of ten of the last sixteen Grand Slams, four of the last five. That’s pretty hard to knock. But with his form wobbles coming at the wrong time for confidence, is the price of 6/5 on Djokovic at Boylesports a little too short on him to back heartily?

It is short, yes, but he is still worth a shot, arguably being one of the best in the world and the old adage of form is temporary, class is permanent applies here.

Along with his strong record at Flushing Meadows, despite converting on just one of his five final appearances there, the field isn’t that strong or deep behind him. Reigning champion Rafael Nadal is out of the mix having already withdrawn because of a wrist injury, so that is probably Djokovic’s biggest threat out of the way already. It leaves Roger Federer as 3/1 second favourite thanks to the great season that the Swiss superstar is having, and Andy Murray, who has struggled for form all season, at 4/1. Rising star Grigor Dimitrov, Stan Wawrinka and Jo Wilfried Tsonga are among the best dark horse shots.

When the 2014 US Open comes rolling around, expect Djokovic to be there and be ready. He is a fierce competitor and will be berating himself for his substandard performances at the recent ATP Masters 1000 touranments. The thing about the US Open is that he will get a good three rounds to really get some form behind him before he gets to the business end of the tournament. It probably won’t take too much for that form to start running back through him, as the adrenaline from the tournament sinks home.

Online betting site Boylesports will refund all losing bets on the outright winner market for the men’s draw at the 2014 US OPen, if Andy Murray repeats his 2012 success and wins the title. New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

British number one Andy Murray has been seeded eight in the US Open men’s singles which get underway next week. Murray – a former US Open champion – has struggled to find consistency on the court since returning to the game after undergoing back surgery in September last year but is seeded one place higher than his current world ranking because Rafael Nadal is unable to defend his crown due to a wrist injury.

The Scot did make the semi-finals of this year’s French Open but was knocked out of the Australian Open and Wimbledon at the quarter-final stage and is still searching for a first win on the ATP Tour since his Wimbledon triumph in 2013. He’s not looked the same player since his relationship with Ivan Lendl broke down and it remains to be seen if he can recapture former glories under the tutelage of Amelie Mauresmo. Murray is a best 9/2 to come good again at Flushing Meadows.

Unsurprisingly, world number one Novak Djokovic is the men’s top seed, with five-times US Open champion Roger Federer the second seed. That means the great rivals can only meet in this year’s final, which would be a repeat of their epic encounter at Wimbledon at the start of last month. Djokovic can be backed at 7/5 with bwin but the Serb hasn’t fared well on the hard courts in North America so far this month, losing in the early rounds in Toronto and Cincinnati.  Federer beat Murray in the quarter-finals in Cincinnati and is 7/2 with Skybet to win a sixth US Open and an 18th Grand Slam in total. The Swiss hasn’t missed any of the last 60 Grand Slams, which speaks volume for his resilience – compare that to the younger Nadal’s injury woes and the recent record attendance of Murray.

Australian Open winner Stanislas Wawrinka is seeded third in New York but is 18/1 with bwin to double his Grand Slam tally at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. Spain’s David Ferrer is fourth and Milos Raonic of Canada rounds off the top five. Czech Tomas Berdych has been made the sixth seed with Murray’s Wimbledon conqueror, Grigor Dimitrov, seventh. France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – who beat Federer, Djokovic, Dimitrov and Murray to win the Toronto Open but is notoriously erratic – is 25/1 with betway and Titanbet, and Kei Nishikori of Japan rounds off the top 10.

2012 US Open title winner Andy Murray has been disappointingly set as eighth seed for this year’s action at Flushing Meadows, which starts in less than a week. It could have been worse for the British Number One if reigning champion Rafael Nadal hadn’t have pulled out ahead of the tournament with injury.

Murray has struggled to get back to the top of his game since his back surgery towards the end of last season. It has been a big search for top form for him this season and he parted company with coach Ivan Lendl too, bringing in Amelie Mauresmo in a bold move to try and push his game forward. But with failures at the quarter final stages of the Australian Open and Wimbledon, with a semi final exit at the French Open, is Murray in the kind of shape to take Flushing Meadows by storm again?

Priced at 4/1 with Boylesports, Murray is running behind both Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in the 23014 US Open betting market. It was a quarter final exit that Murray suffered last season at the tournament in his title defence, and anything beyond a spot in the final eight could be a bit of stretch for him this time around too. Murray is without a title to his name so far this season, and while he will be desperate to round off a difficult year with the US Open slam in his pocket for the second time in his career, the probabilities aren’t high.

Yes, he is still one of the best in the game, and that will put him in with a shot. But the only time that he has been past the quarter final of any level of tournament on the ATP this season, was that run to the final four at Roland Garros. So Murray’s quest to break more ground at the business end of things doesn’t look great. On the flip side, he will be something of an underdog, players not fearing him so much, so maybe pressure will be off?

An Andy Murray quarter final stage of elimination bet could be a tempting proposition for punters here. It’s actually not as if the field is that deep or competitive, but the Scot has always been just a bit vulnerable against scrappy players who aren’t afraid to attack him. Players like Stan Wawrinka at 12/1 and rising star Grigor Dimitrov at 16/1 could offer better value to make it to the quarters than Murray.

At the end of the day, should Murray run into either Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic at any point of the tournament, then the Brit will be underdog. 2011 winner Djokovic (fist seed) is the strong favourite at 11/10 with Boylesports, with the resurgent Roger Federer (second seed) at 3/1 with the bookmaker. They would be kept apart until the final, meaning that Murray would likely have to go through both of them for the title.

Online betting site Boylesports have a great 2014 US Open tennis betting promotion running. They will refund all losing bets on the outright winner market for the men’s draw, if Andy Murray repeats his 2012 success and wins the title. new customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

It is the second of the back to back ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, after Jo Wilfried Tsonga blazed a trail to the Rogers Cup in Canada on the weekend. The Frenchman took down Roger Federer in the final, and is Federer who is trading as second favourite for Cincinnati this week at a price of 4/1 at Titanbet. As this is a Masters 1000 event like Toronto was last week, the draws are pretty much the same in as far as who is likely to face up against each other.

Federer, who has a great affinity with the tournament having won it five times before, most recently back in 2012. It’s a been a great, resurgent season for Federer but will the long week in Canada hinder his progress here? These are all massively important warm ups ahead of the US Open. Federer has won 21 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events in his career, and the Swiss master is going to take some each way value. You don’t question his skill, or commitment, just his legs, and with Cincinatti being so tricky for many players, Federer has tamed the unpredictable courts so well during his career.

It is Novak Djokovic who heads up the betting market at Titanbet at a price of 5/4, despite never having won Cincinnati, losing in the final of the event four times in his career, he goes as favourite. He put in a terrible performance in his loss against Jo Wilfried Tsonga at the Rogers Cup. You aren’t going to see him get much worse than that. So he can only get better, but at a short price of 6/5, then there isn’t a great deal of value on him. There could be a reunion back in the quarter finals this week, but would punters have confidence in Djokovic losing back to back games against the Frenchman?

So it could be a field in which there is value looking further afield. David Ferrer is in the top half of the draw alongside Djokovic and Tsonga this week, but hasn’t got history at Cincinnati at all. So too is Stan Wawrinka and Grigor Dimitrov. The latter had some long matches last week, while Wawrinka crashed and burned early and could be  decent dark horse at 14/1 with Titanbet. Andy Murray has won this tournament twice before in his career and is running as an 8/1 shot. The British number one though has won nothing since claiming the WImbledon crown last year and can’t be backed with a great deal of certainty, especially with his last Cincy title coming three years ago.

Murray is in the same quarter as Federer and right now, Federer looks to have more game than Murray. Take Federer out of the picture and the bottom half is pretty tough to call. Milos Raonic could come into play this week with his big serves, as the Cincinnati courts are hard to return on, and the same can be said of John Isner, who lost last year’s final against Rafael Nadal.

ATP Cincinnati Tennis Betting Odds

Novak Djokovic 6/5, Roger Federer 4/1, Andy Murray 7/1, Milos Raonic 12/1, Grigor Dimitrov 16/1, Stan Wawrinka 14/1, Tomas Berdych 20/1, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 18/1, John Isner 33/1, David Ferrer 40/1

Head over to Titanbet for some great insurance on 4-fold accas at the moment. Titanbet will refund losing stakes up to the value of £10 on losing 4-folds, which can be built from selections from any sport. So good chance to shoot for some big winnings with insurance in place.

It is Novak Djokovic v Roger Federer betting in the final of Wimbledon and what a clash it should be. World number two Djokovic is back in the final for the third time in four years, and he will be looking to turn around his fortunes in the final since his only victory at SW19 in 2011. This is a big moment for Djokovic as he is looking to land his first Grand Slam title since the 2013 Australian Open.

Even with Djokovic having lost in his last three major finals he is running as strong 4/7 favourite to take the win over Federer. The Swiss superstar rolled back the years and confirmed that he still has what it takes to be master of the grass, as he goes in search of his eighth Grand Slam title. Federer last took the title back in 2012 when he beat Andy Murray.

With Federer cruising through to the final, having dropped just the one set along the way in his quarter final match against Stan Wawrinka, he is going to have some backing. As for Novak Djokovic he has shown some frailties in his game, but some great resilience as well. He had to come from 2-1 down in the quarter finals against Marin Cilic, and had to dig deep in an epic four set battle with Grigor Dimitrov in the semi’s.

He may not get away with throwing away a lead in the final against Roger Federer though. The head to head between the two stands at 18-16 in favour of the Swiss star and Federer has won two of the three meetings between them this season. They met in the semi final of Wimbledon back in 202 and Federer took the win in four sets.
