Here at gambling.ie we try to discuss as many different forms of sports gambling as we can, particularly now that online sports gambling has provided us with far more options. Clearly we can’t ignore the biggest two sports gambling activities of horse racing and football, but more and more of us are taking advantage of the opportunity to gamble on other sports such as cricket and tennis for example, both of which have become year round sports. Many would argue of course that in spite of the increased access to tournaments all over the world, when it comes to gambling on tennis most of us probably only really follow the grand slam events such as the recent Australian Open where all the top players are guaranteed to be in action. Many critics also comment that tennis gambling, particularly in the men’s game has become less interesting over recent years because of the dominance of four players who have shared almost all the grand slam titles between them for several years. At the Australian Open Novac Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray certainly proved yet again that they are still at the top of their game, with Djokovic in particular looking almost unbeatable. On the other hand tennis gambling fans did see a new women’s grand slam winner with Angelique Kerber beating Serena Williams in the Australian Open final. There is no doubt that tennis gambling fans would have got very good odds on that result given the way that Serena had also looked almost unbeatable throughout the tournament. Whilst gambling on tennis will never be as big as gambling on horse racing or football, Murray and Federer are still both capable of winning grand slam tournaments so tennis gambling enthusiasts will be wondering whether the French Open will see an upset. We may even see Rafael Nadal back to his best on his favourite surface.
