But Harding has plenty of company with gamblers that want things to be as they were in the past. Especially with the Grand Slam events. The Australian Open, Roland Garros French Open, The Championships Wimbledon, and US Open are all slated to be played in their traditional times of the year. The Grand Slam tennis events command a massive wagering handle. They dwarf the entire rest of the schedule. And with men’s and women’s championships for each Grand Slam tournament, the action and betting options are virtually limitless. Tennis experts and casual gamblers alike bet on the Grand Slams of tennis.

Now let’s look at the 2022 professional tennis Grand Slam schedule.

Wimbledon is loved by tennis fans, gamblers, and most media and players. A minority of media and players detest Wimbledon for its staid and traditional ways.

Grand Slam Greats

On the men’s singles side Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic are tied with 20 Grand Slam championships. Pete Sampras follows with 14 titles, and then Roy Emerson, an Australian hero from the 1960s, checks in with 12. Another Aussie from that era, Rod Laver, has 11 Grand Slam championships. Bjorn Borg took 11 Grand Slams with his famed wooden racket, followed by Bill Tilden with ten.

Four players have won all four Grand Slam tournaments in the same year. Don Budge was the first in 1938. And then Rod Laver did it twice in 1962 and 1969 for a sporting achievement that ranks among the greatest ever. Novak Djokovic is the only other player to win each tournament consecutively, although not in a calendar year in 2015-16.

In 2021, Novak Djokovic had the chance to complete the fourth ever calendar grand slam but was defeated by Daniil Medvedev in the final leg of the quest at the US Open.

Although Djokovic failed to complete the Grand Slam, his quest drew massive TV ratings and betting handle. The worldwide interest generated for tennis served as a consolation prize. Djokovic is the dominant men’s player of this era and brings the potential to pull off the calendar Grand Slam eventually.

On the women’s side, Margaret Court maintained Australia’s dominance of the sport in the 1960s. She owns a record 24 Grand Slam titles. Serena Williams is one behind with 23 Grand Slam championships. Steffi Graf is next with 22 Grand Slam titles. Following Graf is a tie between Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova at 18. And then Billie Jean King has 12 Grand Slam championships.

Three women have won a calendar-year Grand Slam. Maureen Connolly in 1953, Margaret Court in 1970, and Steffi Graf in 1988.

Non-calendar Grand Slams were won by Martina Navratilova in 1983-84, Steffi Graf in 1993-94, and Serena Williams in 2002-03 and 2014-15.

Although she is past her prime with a battered body, Serena Williams is still the biggest brand in the sport and at the betting window.
