If you were compiling a list of sports which attract the attention of sports gambling fans in Ireland, it is unlikely that tennis would appear near the top of the list if indeed it featured at all. Since the introduction of online sports gambling however, gambling on tennis in common with gambling on a number of other minor sports is becoming more popular. There are a lot of people in Ireland who play tennis regularly and are passionate about the game, but most of them were unlikely to go to their local betting shop and place a bet on a tennis match. Most betting shops were unlikely to advertise any odds relating to tennis gambling, even during grand slam tournaments such as the French Open currently in progress at Roland Garros, but online sports gambling has changed that situation completely. Nowadays gambling on tennis online is as easy as gambling on horse racing or football, and because of that we have seen an increase in tennis gambling online and gambling on a whole range of other minor sports. Online sports gambling enables sports fans to follow almost any sport all year round and wherever it is taking place, and sports such as tennis clearly benefit from that improved access. Not that long ago even the most avid tennis fan would not have considered gambling on tennis being played anywhere other than at one of the four grand slam tournaments, but online tennis gambling has meant that more and more of the leading tournaments across the world are attracting the attention of sports gambling fans. The grand slam tournaments obviously still attract the most attention, as they do in a number of other sports such as golf, and going into the second week of the French Open tennis gambling enthusiasts will almost certainly be paying close attention to the progress of their favourite players.
