Barclays ATP Tour Final Preview and Odds – Tennis Betting November 15 – 22

Tennis Betting
There is a stellar line- up at this week's Paris Masters - the final Masters event of 2015 - but the outcome will have no bearing on the line-up for the Barclays ATP Tour Finals at The O2 Arena in London, unless one of the eight players who have already qualified are unable to take part.

ATP Tour Finals History and Format

The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals is the year-end climax to the men's professional tennis season, featuring only the world's best eight qualified singles players and doubles teams. Players compete for Emirates ATP Rankings points throughout the season in a bid to earn one of the eight coveted berths and a chance to win a share of the $6million prize money on offer. Played using a round-robin format on a single hardcourt at The O2, each play three group matches as they compete for a berth in the semi-finals. The tournament has been staged, in one guise or another, since the 1970s. It began life as the Master Grand Prix before becoming the ATP Tour World Championship and the Tennis Masters Cup. It became the ATP Tour Finals in 2009, the first year it was staged in London which has hosted the event every year since. Roger Federer has won it more times than anyone else (six) but Novak Djokovic has won it four times, including the last three, and the world number one is a hot favourite again. BetVictor have the Serb at a best 4/6 and are still offering to refund stakes of up to ÂŁ50 on tennis accumulators including five selections or more if only one of your selections loses. Djokovic's only defeat in a Grand Slam this year came in the final of the French Open, against Stan Wawrinka. He beat current world number two Federer in the finals at both Wimbledon and Flushing Meadows and blew away world number three Andy Murray in the final of the Australian Open at the start of the year. He has accumulated almost twice as many points as anyone else on the ATP Tour in 2015 and few will want to oppose him in London if all goes well in Paris this week. Federer has lost in two of the last three finals of the ATP Tour Finals to Djokovic, though had to withdraw last season due to exhaustion. Rafael Nadal lost in the final in 2013 and is 16/1 with BetVictor to go one better this year, though the Spaniard was beaten in the final of the Swiss Indoors by Federer just last week. Before Paris, Murray had lost nine of his last 10 matches against Djokovic, four of his last five against Federer and seven of his last eight against Nadal so the Scot makes limited appeal at a best 14/1 in London, where he has generally fared badly in the past. He may also want to hold something back for Great Britain's Davis Cup Final against Belgium in a few weeks' time - some are even suggesting Murray skips the O2 in order to save himself entirely for the Davis Cup but that decision would be hard to quantify considering the prize money at stake.

ATP World Tour Final 2013 Odds and Preview – Tennis Betting Nov 4 – Nov 10

Novak Djokovic (Serbia)
Andy Murray's absence from the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals has taken off a bit of the shine for the London crowds but Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will all be involved and the select tournament at the O2 Arena rarely disappoints. It's likely 2013 will be remembered as the year that Murray finally won a Wimbledon final but that's only as far as British tennis fans are concerned. The rest of the world has been celebrating the re-emergence of Nadal as the leading player on the ATP circuit. The Spaniard has won nine titles this year, including the French and US Opens, but is only second favourite in Greenwich behind Djokovic at 12/5 with unibet and 888sport. That's probably because he lost to David Ferrer for the first time in the semi-finals of last week's Paris Masters. Ferrer, a 33/1 chance with BetVictor and on betfair, lies in wait for his compatriot again but it may be a bit much to expect lightning to strike twice within a few days. Nadal's other opponents in Group A, Stan Wawrinka and Tomas Berdych, have never beaten the world number one and are 10/1 (bwin) and 8/1 (Paddy Power) to win the section. Ferrer is 13/2 with Paddy Power but has had little time to recover from his Paris Masters Final against Djokovic so Nadal looks a shoe-in in this market at 1/2 with bwin as he would probably avoid the Serb in the semi-finals if he won all of his group matches. Djokovic is a best 5/4 with Boylesports to win the ATP World Tour Finals and 4/6 with Paddy Power to win Group B ahead of Federer, Juan Martin del Potro and Richard Gasquet. Federer is 5/1 with bwin but there would be few that would argue that the Swiss is not the force of old and he is 9/1 with Boylesports and bwin to win this event for a seventh time in 2013. Federer is, in fact, 4/5 with bwin not to make the semi-finals. That's more than a possibility given that del Potro is playing well, indeed the Argentinian could even be the bet of the tournament to reach the last four at 13/18 with bwin and he's worth a small bet at 8/1 with Boylesports, unibet and 888sport to win the tournament itself considering the busy recent workload of some of his rivals.  

Barclays ATP World Tour Finals – Tennis Betting (Nov 5 – 11)

Roger Federer (SUI)
Andy Murray is only a best 13/5 with Boylesports to end his breakthrough year with more silverware in the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London this week, but has been done no favours by the draw. He's been put into Group A along with top seed Novak Djokovic, whom he beat in the US Open Final but has since had his revenge in Shanghai, Czech Tomas Berdych and last year's surprise finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Big-server Berdych will be the world number three's first opponent on Monday afternoon and he has a decent record against the Scot, having won four of their previous seven clashes, though Murray did beat him in the semi-finals at Flushing Meadows before ending a four-match losing streak in grand slam finals with a five-set victory over Djokovic. Tsonga was also overpowered by Murray in the Wimbledon semi-finals but is unlikely to be swept aside as easily now the action is indoors. Ignore Murray's performance in last week's Paris Masters. He wasn't match-fit and doesn't like the surface at the Bercy Omnisports and Djorkovic, equally, was using the event as a warm-up for London. He certaily didn't seem too upset by his second-round defeat against Sam Querrey. The Serb will be confirmed as the world number one in London again this week and the 11/5 quote from Boylesports to win will look big if he beats Tsonga convincingly in his opening match. Defending champion Roger Federer didn't even play in Paris to rest ahead of the season finale and should certainly have few problems making it through to the semi-finals from a group that also includes Juan Del Potro, fourth seed David Ferrer and Janko Tipsarevic. The latter (104/1 on Betfair) looks well out of his depth while Ferrer (a general 25/1) went all the way in Paris and may struggle to scale the heights again so quickly. But Del Potro may be capable of giving Federer a game now he's back to his best and can be backed at a general 9/1 to go on and take the title. The Argentine's power game has caused Federer problems in the past, though the Swiss has undoubtedly been the best indoor player in the world over the last 18 months while Del Potro has only won tournaments twice under cover.

Novak Djokovic v David Ferrer Tennis Betting Odds – Barclays ATP World Tour Finals

Roger Federer (SUI)
With an efficient demolition job over old rival Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer looks well on track to lift the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour title. We just can’t see anyone stopping him at the moment. We have lost Andy Murray from the tournament because of injury and in comes Janko Tipsarevic as a replacement in Group A. You would think that opens the door for Novak Djokovic to get through in top spot, and we turn our attention to him next in Day 4’s top match, Novak Djokovic v David Ferrer. This could ultimately be the battle for top spot, because Ferrer opened with a victory over the labouring Andy Murray. So if the tricky Spaniard can double up, he will be guaranteed a place in the semi final, alongside Roger Federer, the only other man confirmed for that stage at the moment. So the stakes are high here in this match, because winning the group will mean avoiding the favourite Federer in the semi final stage. So huge incentive for both Djokovic and Ferrer. World Number One Novak Djokovic needed a third set tie break to get past Tomas Berdych in his first match. There were concerns over his levels of fitness coming into the tournament, and while he didn’t look at his very best, certainly not off the first serve, he still had just about enough in the tank to battle his way through to the victory. He will, without doubt, find Spaniard Ferrer a much tougher and less forgiving opposition than Berdych though, and this will be a test of his fitness. Ferrer is a tough battler, and mixes up his shots very well to unsettle his opponents. Ferrer is more of a clay court specialist but is ranked 5th in the world and is the strongest outside bet to win all this. If he gets the better of Djokovic on Thursday, then he will be coasting and the strongest challenger to Federer. So let’s take a little look at the head to head for David Ferrer v Novak Djokovic betting. It is closer than you may think, with Serbian Djokovic edging it 6-4. The likelihood here, is if Djokovic isn’t 100%, then Ferrer will run him ragged all over the court for a tough battle. They have only met once before this season, and that was in the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Madrid on Clay, when Djokovic won in three sets. Djokovic has won the last two meetings against Ferrer but this one could be a pretty close affair. Djokovic is favourite though to take the match at 7/20 at SportingBet, while Ferrer is back at 5/2 with Bet365. It could well be worth a little flutter on Ferrer here, because he should push Djokovic to the limits of his fitness. In the day’s other match, we have Murray’s replacement Janko Tipsarevic facing off against Tomas Berdych. Would imagine that Berdych, although a little inconsistent in his first match will edge things as favourite at 8/15 with Ladbrokes, but Tipsarevic put together a great run of form towards the end of the regular season, pushing hard for a place at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. He just missed out on the top eight, but would seriously take a match punt on him here. For value would go with Tipsarevic on this one at 7/4 with Bet365, because he leads the head to head over Berdych 4-1.

Roger Federer v Rafael Nadal ATP World Tour Finals Tennis Betting – 22.11.11

Sports Betting
Despite all the fuss about injuries, form and fitness heading into the ATP World Tour Tennis finals in London this week, Britain’s Andy Murray was the only one of the top four to lose their opening matches. Both Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic both had to struggle their way to victories though, and only defending champion Roger Federer rattled off an opening Round Robin victory with ease. Andy Murray apparently strained a muscle ahead of his group opener against Spaniard David Ferrer, and upon losing the match, the Scot said that he would assess on Tuesday whether or not he would be able to carry on in the tournament. If he withdraws it will be a big disappointment to the home crowd of course, and already his back is against the wall, sitting in the same group as Novak Djokovic. Murray will likely have to win his next two matches to fight his way through to the semi finals, it will all be dependant on other results of course. Novak Djokovic had to endure a slow start against Czech Tomas Berdych, losing the first four opening games, before finally winning the encounter in a final set tie break. It was a steady entry for world number one Djokovic, who wasn’t serving all that strongly throughout the match, and looks to be playing at about 90%. As for Rafael Nadal, he had to hang on with all his might as well in his opening match against American Mardy Fish, needing a final set tie break as well to pick up his first victory. Just like Djokovic, Nadal did not look completely on top of his game in the first match, but where Djokovic and Nadal hung in, Murray couldn’t. So that leaves the outright favourite in the ATP World Tour Finals tennis betting, Roger Federer with the easiest win in the first round. Federer, who won the Paris 1000 Masters ahead of this, looking well in control for the most part, as he edged out Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in three sets to earn his first victory. Now we get to see one of the greatest ever tennis rivalries revisited, as Roger Federer v Rafael Nadal betting takes centre stage on Tuesday. We can start off our Roger Federer v Rafael Nadal tennis betting with a look at the head to head record. Nadal leads here strongly, with a 17-8 lead over Federer. They have met three times this year, and it is the Spaniard who has won out on each of those occasion, two of them being on clay though where he excels. However, it is worth just getting behind Roger Federer for your tennis betting here because the Swiss superstar is the man in form. Nadal looked pretty beaten up in his opening match against Mardy Fish. There were questions about his form heading to London, as he suffered a shock loss to Florian Mayer in Shanghai a month ago, and has just not quite been at his best since the final of the French Open. Nadal is making mistakes at the moment, and he doesn’t look physically strong. He was also suffering from stomach problems which saw him take a lengthy bathroom break in the third set against Fish. Nadal actually looked very sharp for stretches of the match against Fish, but his standards will need to be a bit higher against Federer. Federer looks to be serving well and very powerful in his ground strokes, and the Swiss star will naturally try and move Nadal around the court as much as possible to tire him and take him out of his comfort zone. If anything Federer must have learnt from his encounters with Nadal this year, is that he cannot afford to let chances slide, not to let Nadal off the hook. While Nadal has a lot to offer still, Federer is the stronger of the two in form right now and that is where your tennis betting should go towards. This match is a repeat of last year’s final here at the ATP World Tour Finals, which Federer won in three sets. While Federer is looking for his 6th ATP World Tour Finals title, Rafael Nadal is still seeking his first. A victory for either one here would send them through to the next round. So what is the tennis betting looking like for Federer v Nadal? It is Federer who is edging things as favourite with the bookmakers for this Group B encounter. Federer is trading at 1/2 with Ladbrokes to beat Nadal, while the Spaniard is out at a best price of 15/8 with Paddy Power to overturn form. Either way it should be a classic, as encounters between these two are always full of excitement and drama. Don’t be surprised to see this one go all the way! Online bookmaker Victor Chandler are worth heading to for your ATP World Tour Finals tennis betting. The popular bookie has a great tennis promotion running, which offers refunds if your selection loses in the final set tie break. With both Nadal and Djokovic already edging their way through their first matches in final set tie breaks, the coverage their promotion provides is great. It means that you can take a match bet and if your backed player loses in the final set tie break, that means you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet. So if you had bet on Mardy Fish against Nadal, or Berdych against Djokovic at Victor Chandler, you would have received your lost stake refunds!

Barclays ATP World Tour Finals Outright Winner Odds Roger Federer: 7/5 at Stan James Novak Djokovic: 9/4 at Totesport Rafael Nadal: 11/2 at SkyBet Andy Murray: 15/1 at Stan James Jo Wilfried Tsonga: 21/1 at Stan James Tomas Berdych: 21/1 at BetFair David Ferrer: 22/1 at Bet365 Mardy Fish: 80/1 at SkyBet Tuesday’s other match from Group B at the ATP World Tour Finals, is Jo Wilfried Tsonga v Mardy Fish. With both of these tasting defeat in their first matches in the group, this is a must win affair for both of them. On paper it looks as if Jo Wilfried Tsonga, who has been in pretty decent form over the last month or so, is favorite to take the match. They have only faced each once before, and the head to head stands in favour of Frenchman Tsonga a 1-0. That meeting came at this year’s US Open, which Tsonga won in a mammoth five setter after being 2-1 down. Jo Wilfried Tsonga 4/1, Mardy Fish 11/8 at William Hill
