This summer the sports gambling fans amongst us are in the middle of a sporting feast, when no sooner have the last surviving UK or Irish football team been eliminated from the European Championships we are already at the start of the next major sports gambling event. Today sees the start of Wimbledon fortnight, probably the most prestigious professional tennis tournament in the world, and certainly the most important event of the year for tennis gambling fans. The blanket terrestrial television coverage of the Wimbledon Championships makes it an ideal sports gambling opportunity, and gambling on tennis is also a perfect scenario for in-play gambling which we are told is the biggest growth area for sports gambling. In recent years the men’s title has been totally dominated by the top three players in the world, and not many gamblers on tennis would look further than Djokovic, Nadal or Federer for this year’s winner, but could this finally be Murray’s first Major title. The Ladies title is somewhat more difficult to forecast since the Williams sisters have semi-retired, but the recent good form of Sharapova has propelled her to both number one in the world and favourite status in the minds of many tennis gambling experts to win the tournament for a second time. For fervent tennis gambling fans, the Major tennis tournaments such as Wimbledon offer more than just the singles matches to enjoy, with men’s and ladies doubles plus of course the mixed doubles all providing additional gambling opportunities. If gambling on tennis is one of your favourite gambling options, Wimbledon will probably be the best gambling opportunity of the year and always throws up some surprise results in the early rounds, so best of luck in picking the giant killer.
