ATP Shanghai Rolex Masters Tennis Betting Info
It is likely to be another big Novak Djokovic v Rafael Nadal showdown this week in China for the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event. The two heavyweights are set to light up the field again after last week’s China Open. The two clashed in the final then, but there are a couple more big names joining this week’s field with Juan Martin del Potro and Roger Federer stepping back on to the court.

ATP Shanghai Rolex Masters Tennis Betting Favourite
Although losing his world number one spot to Rafael Nadal last week, Novak Djokovic goes as favourite this week. Only narrowly though of course but his confidence will have received a massive boost after finally getting his hands on another trophy and getting the better of Nadal. Heading to the China Open last week, it had been seven tournaments since we’d seen Djokovic lift a title, but he took down Rafael Nadal in the final, which puts him in great stead for another big run this week. Djokovic is the defending champion as well, after saving five match points against Andy Murray last year to come back and win. The Serbian is looking for his ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title of the season. Goes up against Federer in his quarter of the draw, but wouldn’t look beyond Djokovic who is 11/10 in the outright winner market.
ATP Shanghai Rolex Masters Tennis Betting Tips:
Breathing down the neck of Djokovic again should be Rafael Nadal, who is on for a bit more history this season. If he takes the title this week he would become the first man to ever win six ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events in a single year. Nadal has posted a 29-1 match record in Masters 1000 events this season but he is gunning for his first ever Shanghai Rolex Masters title. In reaching the final of the China Open last week, Nadal returned to world number one after picking up ten titles this year and reaching 13 finals in 14 tournaments. Dominant. His best ever finish here was reaching the final in 2009 where he lost to Nikolay Davydenko. It should be a natural straight choice, a 50/50 shot between him and Djokovic.
Roger Federer returns for the first time since the US Open and he needs some points in order to try and reach the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at the end of the season in London. It hasn’t been a successful year for the great and like Nadal, this is a tournament which he hasn’t managed to win before either, his best effort came in reaching the final in 2010. Tough draw though, would likely have to go through Djokovic and Nadal to get the title. Unlikely and is back at 4/1 to win the quarter behind Djokovic, which says a great deal about his chances.
The biggest threat down in the second half of the draw is likely to be Juan Martin del Potro or Tomas Berdych. They head up a competitive third quarter of the draw, where Argentinian Del Potro is Even money to win the quarter, with Berdych at 9/4. Del Potro has only played one match at this tournament before, losing it obviously. Berdych reached the semi finals in 2012 so may have a little more standing. The Czech showed enough in reaching the semi finals last week in Beijing, where he had to retire in the semi’s against Nadal while down in the first set. Since a second round disappointment at the US Open, Del Potro landed a title in Tokyo and in his last ATP World TOur Masters 1000 event, he reached the semi’s. Those two are the best outside shots in the field, but Nadal still stands in the way of both of them.

Some big guns are out this week at the Beijing Olympic Green Tennis Center for the ATP World Tour 500 event.

ATP Beijing Tennis Betting Favourite
It is Rafael Nadal who goes off as favourite this week. Not too surprisingly really given his immense form this season and in beating Novak Djokovic in the final of the US Open. Nadal has been a winner of the China Open before, taking the title back in 2005. But there is something even bigger at stake for Nadal this week, not that he needs much more motivation. If he gets to the final in Beijing, then for the first time since the middle of 2011, he will be guaranteed the World Number One ranking. What a return that would be after missing the start of this season and being so far behind current number one Novak Djokovic. Nadal goes as second seed, on the opposite side of the draw to Djokovic. Little to stop his progress and a likely semi finalist would be John Isner or Tomas Berdych. You’d back Nadal over either of them pretty strongly. Worth backing at Evens to win the tournament outright.
ATP Beijing Tennis Betting Tips:
Well, Novak Djokovic is in the field and looking to defend his title in China. In fact, Djokovic will try and defend both the title and his world number one spot this week and he will have to win the title again to be able to do that. The Serbian has won the Beijing title three times before, and if he can do it again, it will be his fourth tour-level title of the season. It has been seven tournaments now since Djokovic last won a title this season. Hasn’t played a tournament since his lost to Nadal at the US Open and while he has a lot to defend, there has to be question marks over his finishing power at the end of the day. Does he have an answer to Nadal? That’s what this tournament could come down to. The top half of the draw is not so much of a breeze, possibly facing Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarters and David Ferrer in the semi’s. Tough path compared to Nadal certainly.
Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka, who pushed Djokovic all the way in the semi finals of the US Open, could be the best shot behind the big two here. This is his first time at Beijing, but he has reached the semi finals of his last two tournaments played now. So could be rounding out the season in a good bit of form and Wawrinka needs it to try and reach London for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. Could be one to watch through the early rounds in match betting for live tennis. In the same boat is Tomas Berdych, who needs points in the Race To London to consolidate his position in the top eight. Berdych has experience here, winning the title back in 2011 in fact. He hasn’t managed to get his hands on a title this year, but while he is a potential semi finalists, he would likely be there alongside Rafael Nadal.
Other decent names in the mix, probably for match betting will be Richard Gasquet and David Ferrer. Both want Race to London points and they could set up a great quarter final which would potentially lead to a semi final match against Novak Djokovic.

2013 US Open Tennis Betting Info
So the last Grand Slam of the swing will fire up at the end of August, as the world’s best all congregate on the fantastic setting of Flushing Meadows in New York. Last year there was a historic moment for British number one Andy Murray who landed his first Grand Slam title. Can he launch a successful title defence, or will the presences of Novak Djokovic and the immense form of Rafael Nadal be too much for him at the end of the two weeks to top tennis betting action?

2013 US Open Tennis Betting Favourite
To some people’s surprise, it is world number one Novak Djokovic who will be heading to Flushing Meadows with favouritism at the bookmakers. You wouldn’t think too much that a world number one being favourite would be a surprise, but in this case, many people may think so. The titles just haven’t been coming his way of late. After all of his dominance in 2011, things haven’t gone as swimmingly since, picking up just two Grand Slam titles since from seven attempts and both of those at the Australian Open. The Serbian has been in the last three US Open finals, winning just once. Heading to Flushing Meadows, it has been six tournaments entered without a title since winning in Monte Carlo back in April. Even more surprising perhaps is that he has been to just one final in those six tournaments. Perhaps most importantly of all, he has lost to Rafael Nadal twice and Andy Murray once. So the field does look pretty even, so at 7/4 with Boylesports, is Djokovic tremendous value?
2013 US Open Tennis Betting Tips:
Djokovic is not as much value as Rafael Nadal. For the first time in his career, the Spaniard won back to back hard court titles in consecutive weeks. This was a massive step for him because they were both ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles, coming in Montreal and then Cincinnati. So with a nice transition from clay over to hard court, the season for Rafael Nadal just keeps getting better and better. There was that major blip at Wimbledon of course where he crashed out, but this is going to be different at Flushing Meadows. Nadal seems to have the edge over Djokovic at the moment and with just three defeats in 56 matches played this season, he is taking a perfect 15-0 match record on hard surfaces with him. He is also in line to finish the season as world number one as well, a tremendous feat on his comeback after seven months away from the game. He wasn’t at Flushing Meadows last year because of that absence and like, Murray and Djokovic has only won the US Open once, back in 2010. Nadal, given his nine titles this year and having seen of Djokovic in their last two meetings, he is probably going to be many people’s actual favourite in 2013 US Open tennis betting.
So what of the reigning champion? Why is Andy Murray floating back down the pecking order with the bookies? His backers won’t mind that at all of course, but this is new territory into which the Scot will be stepping. Never before has he been in the position of having to defend a Grand Slam title. He won at Flushing Meadows over Novak Djokovic in an epic final last year, but his form leading up to his title defence looks a bit of a concern perhaps. An early exit at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Canada against Ernests Gulbis and then a quarter final exit in Cincinnati against Tomas Berdych hasn’t instilled confidence. But when it comes to the Grand Slams, we get to see the best of Murray. This year’s Wimbledon champion usually turns it on when it matters most and that is what punters will be banking on. A stronger run up would have made him shorter in the odds for 2013 US Open betting, but having been to the final of the last four Grand Slam events he has entered, he has the mettle to be at the business end of things again.
Is it worth looking outside of the big three? Well if you are, then you are only going to be looking at Roger Federer and Juan Martin del Potro. There is a bit of a feeling that we may not see much more of Roger Federer on the ATP Tour. This season hasn’t gone well for him and he has dropped down to 7th in the world rankings. He only has one title this year and even lower tier tournaments which he should have been winning, he just hasn’t been. Despite his illustrious love affair with Flushing Meadows where he won five straight titles, he isn’t going to be a big threat. Big hitting ARgentine Del Potro should be more so. The 2009 US Open winner has a couple of titles under his belt this year. Still needs to find another consistent gear, but the big guns will be worried about running into him early. But again, outside of the big three of Djokovic, Murray and Nadal, you are only looking at outside shots.

After disappointments in the latest ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events hosted in Montreal and Cincinnati recently, the next big step for British tennis star Andy Murray will be a title defence at the US Open. This will be the first time that he has ever been in the position of defending a Grand Slam title. It will be a long, tough road ahead for Andy Murray to get the job done, made even harder this time around with the form of Rafael Nadal in the mix alongside Novak Djokovic.
There is definite improvements to come from Murray from his latest Masters 1000 events, but then that seems to be Murray. He seems to up his game when it comes to the Grand Slams throughout the year. Murray has been the final of each of the last four Grand Slams he has contested and should be around the business end of things one would imagine at Flushing Meadows this time around too.
Online betting site Ladbrokes are offering a 2013 US Open Tennis betting Money Back Special which is going to be well worth jumping all over. If Andy Murray wins the US Open again this year, the popilar betting site will refund all losing outright winner stakes. This means that you can take some fantastic insurance on Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in particular for the final Grand Slam of the year.

Fantastic tennis betting insurance for the 2013 US Open at Ladbrokes. World Number one Novak Djokovic heads to the tournament as favourite at 2/1, with defending champion Murray actually back at 10/3. The biggest threat could come from Rafael Nadal though, who has been racking up titles all year, most recently winning back to back hard court ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events in Montreal and Cincinnati.

ATP Cincinnati Tennis Betting Info
No sooner is one ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in the bag, then another one starts up. The big guns are all out again after the excitement in Canada last week, including the return of Roger Federer, who missed Montreal. There will be big focus on Novak Djokovic this week who is looking for the Cincinnati title to become the first man ever to win all nine of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crowns. He couldn’t handle Rafael Nadal in Canada last week though.

ATP Cincinnati Tennis Betting Favourite
You can look for motivation for a player to go out and win a certain tournament and this week, for world number one Novak Djokovic, there is history waiting to be made. You don’t need much more incentive than that. If he takes the Cincinnati title this week, he will make Masters 1000 history. Now last week, he hit a brick wall in the semi’s that was Rafael Nadal, however, looking at the draw this week, the Serbian should hit back. He goes as favourite and he avoids all the other big guns in the draw really. While there is a banana skin in Milos Raonic potentially in the quarter finals, the most likely semi final opponent for Djokovic would be either third seed David Ferrer or Juan Martin del Potro. Given that this is a hard court, it would most likely be the Argentinian, Del Potro. Still, you would edge Djokovic all the way. Djokovic is due a win, not taking a title in his last five outings. With his biggest stumbling blocks in Nadal and Andy Murray in the opposite half of the draw, you would expect to see him in the final here. Djokovic is 5/2 favourite to win this week at BetFred.
ATP Cincinnati Tennis Betting Tips
So with Djokovic really expected to step up and reach the final in the top half of the draw, it means that the bottom half is packed with Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. So how do you sort this one out? Well, starting with Roger Federer, the Swiss Superstar just isn’t up to par at the moment and although he didn’t play last week, he should be back in the pecking order. He has a tremendous history at the event though, winning it five times and he is the defending champion, beating Djokovic in last year’s final. Wouldn’t put a lot of stock in him at the moment though, especially not in such a tough draw where he’d need to potentially get past Nadal, Murray and Djokovic.
So to Andy Murray’s whose first appearance after his Wimbledon success didn’t go well. He went out of Montreal in the third round to Ernests Gulbis in a surprise result. That’s the thing with Murray, he is still a bit unpredictable until it comes to the majors. Would expect him to fight back here a bit and unlike both Djokovic and Nadal, he has won in Cincinnati before, twice in fact. Should be fresher than Nadal this week and they should square up in the semi finals. Murray could make a good shout this week, because it will be testing for Nadal. A Djokovic/Murray Name The Finalist bet for 11/4 with BetFred may be a good option.
As for Nadal, his tremendous season continued as he ousted Milos Raonic in the final of Montreal last week for his 25th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title. He is consistently going to be Djokovic’s biggest challenger and he scored big points again by beating Djokovic in the semi’s of Montreal. You can’t keep a class act down and proving himself on the hard courts as well as the clay dominance he has had this season, he should be in the mix at the business end. You just wonder if he will be a bit leggy after a big win last week. It could come down to a Nadal v Murray semi to face off against Djokovic in the final. That is the way it is projected to go. Going off at 9/2 behind Djokovic and Murray, the Spaniard still makes some pretty strong value.

ATP Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Favourite
World number one Novak Djokovic goes off as favourite this week and he is lining up a shot a three-peat at the Rogers Cup after winning the event for the last two years. He has won the event three times before in his career and so has a big affinity with Canada. He beat Mardy Fish in the 2011 final and Richard Gasquet last season, so it hasn’t been tough opposition he has gone up against recently though, that has been because of his main challengers (usually Andy Murray) slipping up. Should he land this one, this will be his 15th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title. When Novak Djokovic is in title defence mode he is tough and even with the draw lined up as it is this week, he is favourite. Could have a tricky semi final against Rafael Nadal in his path as well, but still as favourite above all that. The Serbian has three titles under his belt this season and of course the last time we saw him, was in the final of Wimbledon. No matter, he’ll always go off as favourite and is at 6/4 with Unibet to take the Rogers Cup again.
ATP Rogers Cup Tennis Betting Tips
The draw for the 2013 Rogers Cup betting makes the event fascinating. There is the prospect of the Nadal v Djokovic clash along the way and that does shed a little uncertainty over the world number one. Djokovic would go into a potential match up as favourite, but has won one and lost one against the great Spaniard this season. They haven’t met on hard court yet this term, but still, it makes Nadal the dangerous floater in the field and pretty decent value as well. The last time we saw Nadal was at Wimbledon as well, where he suffered a shock first round exit. Should be fresh because he hasn’t played since there. Hasn’t done a lot of work on hard courts, so that’s a grey area on his comeback. What’s not, is his form of winning seven titles this season and losing two others. He has won this one a couple of times before, but wasn’t here last year.
With those two big guns going head to head potentially, you would think that it leaves the path free and clear for Andy Murray to have a good run at the title. It should, realistically, and Murray also has enjoyed some happy hunting here, winning the Rogers Cup a couple of times. If things going to form, he really should be a solid semi final shot, but there could be a massive hurdle in his way. That being Juan Martin del Potro, who heads to Montreal on the back of a title win in Washington DC last week. Like Nadal, the Argentine is a massively dangerous floater in the field and Murray should be cautious here. Murray lost against Delpo at Indian Wells earlier in the year.
Murray has struggled at the Rogers Cup for the past couple of seasons too, withdrawing last year in the third round because of injury. Should Murray get past Del Potro, then Tomas Berdych, another tough opponent could be waiting in the semi’s. In the Name the Finalist Market at Unibet Murray/Djokovic is at 13/8 and Del Potro/Djokovic is 9/2, both solid options really.
Basically nothing is going to be cut and dry on this one at all. In a clouded field you would always lean towards Djokovic. If Murray has a smooth run, the biggest asset to him would be Djokovic and Nadal punching it out over five hard sets in the semi final. Does that sway advantage to Murray? With both Del Potro and Nadal opening at 11/4 to reach the final, either one of those may be worth a small flutter as well. Big prices to look at this week in what should be a fascinating primer for the US Open.

2013 US Open tennis betting will have gained new interest after all the excitement of Andy Murray winning Wimbledon. The next edition of the US Open Grand Slam will be hosted between August 26th and September 9th, rounding out the 2013 slams and the markets are heating up.
When Andy Murray steps out at Flushing Meadows, for the first time in his career he will have all the pressure of being a defending Grand Slam titlist. He hasn’t been in this position before, but his enduring win over Novak Djokovic in last year’s US Open final has put him in this position. While Murray has already put himself among the greats in the game by becoming a multiple Grand Slam winner, this will really be a mark of his standing in the game. Defending a title anywhere is never easy, let alone at the US Open.
In the last four years, Flushing Meadows has produced four different winners, with Juan Martin del Potro taking the 2009 title, followed by Rafael, then Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray last year. So no-one has successfully defended a US Open title since Roger Federer, who won it five times in a row between 2004 and 2008. Before the Fed Express dominated Flushing Meadows, the last successful US Open title defence was by Pat Rafter in 1998. So it’s not easy to achieve.
2013 US Open Tennis Betting Odds at online bookmaker William Hill
Novak Djokovic 7/4, Andy Murray 2/1, Rafael Nadal 4/1, Roger Federer 8/1, Juan Martin del Potro 10/1
Murray has been in the US Open final twice before, losing to Roger Federer in 2008 before that momentous five set win last year. But even on the back of his 2013 Wimbledon title and he being the reigning US Open champion, he is not favourite. Online betting site William Hill has Murray as second favourite at odds of 2/1. Not surprisingly, it is current world number one Novak Djokovic who is taking all supremacy in the 2013 US Open betting odds, but only by a narrow 7/4 over Murray.
Djokovic has been to the last three US Open finals (four in his career), recently losing to Murray and Rafael Nadal and beating Nadal to the punch in 2011. The other final loss was against Federer back in 2007. What is perhaps most interesting about the odds of the 2013 US Open tennis betting is how far in ascendancy the do of Murray and Djokovic are. When you see Rafael Nadal being listed back at 4/1, Roger Federer out at 8/1 and Juan Martin del Potro at 10/1, Murray and Djokovic are expected to dominate Flushing Meadows.
That could be the story of Grand Slams to come (not so much the French Open). That is understandable with the threat of Federer clearly on the decline and Nadal having only reached two US Open finals, it is clear where the power is resting. Murray and Djokovic are supremely fit, supremely resilient and are riding a very strong crest at the top of the game at the moment. So for 2013 US Open tennis betting, it could simply be a split decision between the two. When the markets open, it would be worth backing a Djokovic/Murray Final.
July 8th, 2013 / Lee A Jackson - Category:
After ending a 77 year wait for a British Winner at Wimbledon, bookmakers have installed reigning champion Andy Murray as favourite in Wimbledon 2014 betting.
Murray delighted the huge British crowds on Centre Court and on Henman Hill at SW19 as he claimed his second career Grand Slam title, by beating world number one Novak Djokovic 3-0 in the final. It was the moment that British tennis fans and Murray himself had been waiting for all his career. Following up his US Open title last year, Murray has now firmly arrived among the greats in the game. So where next for the Scot?
Not surprisingly Andy Murray is now a 7/4 ante post shot in 2014 Wimbledon betting with online bookmaker Unibet. That is just ahead of Novak Djokovic’s early offering of 2/1. After having broken the Wimbledon hoodoo, Murray will always have the advantage of the crowds behind him at SW19 and with clear improvement still coming in his game, can he dominate the grass Grand Slam against next term?
The next thing on the immediate agenda though for Andy Murray is the US Open tennis betting. The action at Flushing Meadows won’t be long coming around, and this will be the first time that Murray has to step out with the pressure on his shoulders of being the defending champion.
How will he live up to that in New York? 2013 US Open tennis betting doesn’t see Andy Murray as favourite, as roles are reversed with Novak Djokovic, with the Serbian at 7/4 and Murray at 2/1 with online betting site Unibet.
But one thing is noticeable and that is the top two in the world at the moment could be set to rule the Grand Slams for some time (the French Open aside). On the hard surfaces of the US Open and the Australian Open, it will be hard to stop one of them winning, and with the failings of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at Wimbledon, seeing Murray and Djokovic duke it out for honours there next season wouldn’t be a surprise.
There are other Andy Murray betting markets around, such as William Hill’s offering of Evens to the Great Scot to be knighted. With British Prime Minister David Cameron throwing his weight behind the suggestion, it is likely that Murray will get the honours, it would be pretty hard to overlook him.
Of course, Murray is red hot favourite now to win the 2013 Sports personality of the Year. With William Hill offering odds of 1/20 there’s no value in him. So you would be better looking at Sports Personality without Andy Murray betting for his one, where the main contenders are likely to be Justin Rose or Chris Froome.

But there will naturally be a big flood of bets heading towards the home favourite, Andy Murray in the men’s draw. The Scot reached the final last year and couldn’t get himself into top gear as he was brushed aside by Roger Federer.

Online bookmaker Ladbrokes have produced a tremendous Money Back Special for your 2013 Wimbledon tennis betting. In addition to an outright winner promotion which they were running, there is tremendous match betting coverage on offer at online bookmaker Ladbrokes. The great thing about this promotion is that it covers both the Men’s and Ladies singles matches, which is unusual, as the Women’s draw in Grand Slams usually get overlooked.
If any Men’s or Ladies Singles match at Wimbledon features a 6-0 set, the online betting site we will refund losing Match bets on that match, up to £/€25, in the form of a free bet token.
Especially through the early rounds, when the top players face lesser quality opponents, this has the potential of happening. This offer applies to single bets only and it also only applies to losing pre-match bets which are placed on any Wimbledon 2013 Men’s or Ladies Singles matches taking place between 24th June – 7th July 2013. The maximum refund is £25 per customer, per match. This really is great coverage for the Wimbledon fortnight. Extra value in tennis betting for the Grand Slam can be found in great live in-play betting at Ladbrokes.
New customers registering an account with online betting side Ladbrokes can also get up to three free £10 bets as a welcome bonus as well.
