Tips for betting on Wimbledon 2012

Posted on | June 24, 2012 | No Comments

Betting for Wimbledon will have already commenced for many and with a tough economy, many could do with choosing some winners this year.

Wimbledon is often recognised as the most exciting and famous tennis tournament in the world. The tournament will begin on Monday 25 June 2012 and will close on Sunday 8th July following the final of the men’s singles.

Picking winners can be very difficult because, let’s face it, anybody playing at Wimbledon boasts tremendous skill and talent and while there are some players that generally stand out from the crowd, competition will always be tough. At the end of the day, sport is unreliable and the outcome is never guaranteed.

Despite there being no guarantee, bookmakers have reported a huge amount of interest in the tournament this year and one player gaining a lot of attention is Rafael Nadal. Also, following Andy Murray’s great attempt last year where he reached the semi-finals, he too has been receiving great support.

An article about the best Wimbledon Betting Odds on the Independent can help you decide who to back this year, but here are some of our suggestions:

Men’s seeds

For those who are unaware, Wimbledon has a seeding process that is in place to prevent the highest ranked players playing each other until rounds later on in the tournament. If this goes to plan, seeds one and two will play against each other in the final. Just like every other year, there are 32 seeds for the 2012 Men’s Singles.

The 2012 Wimbledon Draw comes in with Rafael Nadal (Spain) as number one, Novak Djokovic (Serbia) second, Roger Federer (Switzerland) as the third best player and Andy Murray (England) as the fourth.

Women’s seeds

Just like the men’s seeding process, Wimbledon have categorised the top players so that the best two seeds end up playing in the final – provided they don’t get eliminated in earlier rounds.

This year, at number one is Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark), in second is Vera Zvonareva (Russia), Na Li (China) is third and in fourth place is Victoria Azarenka (Belarus).

Wimbledon draw

When betting it is useful to use a breakdown of the 2012 Wimbledon Draw in order to ascertain the most effective route to secure victory.

Wimbledon betting will be tough this year for the men as Novak Djokovic will be joining Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal at the head of the men’s game and Andy Murray is not too far behind either for those who want to back someone British.

Despite this, Tomas Berdych cannot be ruled out as he reached the final last year. Robin Soderling and Juan Martin Del Potro also remain strong contenders.

The women’s draw this year could very well be the best Wimbledon has seen as there are a number of players in for a chance of capturing the prize. Venus Williams is definitely worth a bet through Blue Square Betting as she will be hoping to win her sixth victory, whilst her sister and defending champion, Serena will also be aiming for the title.
