Understanding Wimbledon Betting

Days after Wimbledon has concluded, outright tournament odds will be available for the following year’s event. Finalists and past winners will be very much at the forefront.

These odds will change slightly due to results at the Australian Open and French Open, but the greatest activity will be in the short grass-court season in the weeks leading up to Wimbledon. The results of Wimbledon will slightly effect the odds on the year's US Open.

Queen’s Club in West London hosts the traditional warm-up event for the men a fortnight before although some players go elsewhere, such as Halle in Germany, the same week. Both are ATP 500 tournaments.

For the women, the two main warm-up events are both in England. There is a WTA Premier event at Edgbaston, Birmingham two weeks before Wimbledon with another at Eastbourne a week later.

Factors to Consider When Betting on Wimbledon

Big servers still have an advantage with Roger Federer now a record eight-time men’s champion but, with the grass-court season getting shorter and shorter, serve-and-volleyers are dying out. Baseliners can and do perform well at Wimbledon now with Novak Djokovic (five titles and counting), Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray (two titles apiece) all lifting the famous trophy.

It’s a similar story in the women’s game with Martina Navratilova serve-volleying her way to the last of her record nine Wimbledon triumphs in 1990. The Williams sisters have 12 titles between them (Serena seven, Venus five) with Petra Kvitova next best on two this millennium.

Betting on Grass-Court Tennis

In the past, the grass was the quickest of all surfaces with the ball keeping low compared to other surfaces. Serve-and-volleyers enjoyed the most success and short rallies were the norm. But seven-time men’s champion Pete Sampras’s dominance at the end of the century led the powers that be to make changes to extend the length of rallies.

First, a heavier, bigger ball was brought in to slow down play. And at Wimbledon, the old grass (70 percent rye grass, 30 percent red fescue) mix was replaced by 100 percent ryegrass which is harder but also makes the ball bounce slightly higher.

While the bounce is still lower than anywhere else, the court speed is nowhere near as fast as in the past. It is now similar to that of a medium-fast hard court and there is evidence to suggest that the Australian Open has actually played quicker in recent years.

With 128 players in the main draw, there is a truckload of markets to get stuck into. Popular bets include which player will win their quarter of the draw, odds on a player to reach the final, and naming the two finalists. For big names, there may be odds with the NJ sports betting sites and PA sports betting sites available on how far they will get.
