In addition to the four majors, there is another very important tennis tournament this season. Many players will take a detour from the usual schedule to travel to Tokyo in late June to try to win gold at the 2020 Summer Olympics.The 2020 men’s tennis season will get underway starting on Monday, January 6 with the ATP Cup in Australia and the Qatar Open in Doha, and it will run through the last week of November when the best players in the world play for national pride at the Davis Cup Finals. The old guard of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic continue to dominate the circuit well into their 30s, and it’s been four years since someone other than these three legends won a Grand Slam Singles title. Will this be the year that younger players like Dominic Thiem, Daniil Medvedev, and Alexander Zverev finally break through or will it be another year of dominance from tennis royalty?
ATP Grand Slams
The first tennis Grand Slam of the year is always in January when the world’s best players go down under to compete in the Australian Open. This year’s edition was the 108th edition of the prestigious tournament, and it was one of the few sporting events this calendar year to go off without a hitch. It could be the only major played by the end of the season with the world still reeling from the coronavirus epidemic.
Leave it to the French to go it alone. While virtually every other sporting event or league has cancelled or indefinitely postponed its events in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, the French Open has merely pushed back its dates. Rather than being played in May and June as is typical for the tournament, the 2020 French Open is slated to start on September 20 and run until October 4.
Unfortunately, Wimbledon will not take place for the first time since World War II this year. Wars were the only thing that kept this event from happening in previous years, but the coronavirus epidemic led to this tournament being cancelled in early April. The All-England Club is closed for the foreseeable future, but it hopes to open again for Wimbledon in 2021.
Unlike the other Grand Slams that have remained in one location throughout their history, the U.S. Open has moved around a few times. From 1881 to 1914, the event took place on the grass courts at a casino in Newport, Rhode Island, before moving to the West Side Tennis Club in New York City. It moved to the Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia for a few years before coming back to the Big Apple, and it has been held in NYC since that point.
Popular Tennis Betting Options
Match Betting: Match betting is the basic tennis wagering choice. A bettor can simply choose the winner in a select matchup and base it on the betting odds, and then await the results of the contest.
Set Betting: Gamblers can also bet in the individual sets in multiple ways. One option is to choose a winner of the specific game. Another way to bet per set is to choose the final tennis score by choosing the number of sets won by each player. Since individual setting tends to be more volatile, the betting often allows for higher odds compared to choosing match winners.
Betting on a tournament winner: When the most prestigious tournaments come around, odds will be given for the top players to win the entire tournament. Choosing the correct player can be lucrative because the odds are tougher since the winner has to navigate several matchups before hoisting the trophy.
