We are now well into the action at the 2011 US Open tennis betting. The first big name to fall was Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova who limped out of the first round, and we have seen Venus Williams have to withdraw because of being diagnosed with an illness which saps her energy and causes her joint problems. But there are plenty of big guns remaining in both the women’s and men’s draws at Flushing Meadows, and of course, there are huge hopes surrounding Britain’s very own Andy Murray. 2011 US Open tennis betting will be rampant over the next week or so as the tournament swings towards the business end ahead of the Championship Finals days next weekend. Online bookmaker SportingBet are currently running a tennis betting promotion on the action at Flushing Meadows, and it is one that you may want to consider, just for a bit of betting insurance. Welcome to the SportingBet US Open Choker Cashback promotion. If a player backed in match selection betting blows a two set lead, then SportingBet will refund your lost stake as a free bet. Remember Roger Federer being two sets up against Jo Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon this year, only to see his lead dwindle away and eventually vanish into defeat? Well, should a similar fate happen to any player you back in match betting at the 2011 US Open, online bookmaker SportingBet will have you covered. As a regular punter on tennis, this does happen more often than you may think. Players loosen up when that far behind in a best of five match, and pull out all the fearless stops.
