Betting tennis on the men’s side usually involves taking Roger Federer. He has dominated men’s tennis and must be considered every time you bet tennis. He is followed in the rankings by Rafael Nadal.
Those two get most of the attention from gamblers that are betting tennis. Also, getting a little interest from gamblers that bet tennis are Novak Djokovic and Nikolay Davydenko. There is then a big drop to the rest of the men in terms of betting tennis interest.
David Ferrer will once in a while surprise and win a tournament as will Andy Roddick. Both are poor values though as you bet tennis because neither player wins enough to make you any money. Andy Murray is another player that rarely makes you any money as you are betting tennis.
James Blake is probably the most overrated player on the men’s side as he does not deserve the odds he sometimes gets on the odds board. An underrated player to consider as you are betting tennis is David Nalbandian. He won a couple of times late last year and can make you money sometimes when you are betting tennis.
Betting tennis on the women’s side begins with Justine Henin. She doesn’t have the reputation of Federer but last year was just about as dominant. As you look at betting tennis on the women’s side you first need to look at Henin. After Henin it is a grab bag of players that can all win on occasion.
Svetlana Kuznetsova, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic offer decent value as you are betting tennis. Maria Sharapova is totally overrated in terms of tennis odds as is Serena Williams. Venus Williams sometimes gives you a little value as does Elena Dementieva.
No other players are worth noting on the women’s side as you are betting tennis. As you look at tennis it is a good idea to look at the rankings before you bet a tennis tournament. You always want to know where the players are ranked before looking at the odds board.
