Tennis is one of the sports that have multiple tournaments throughout the year. Even though not all of them are that interesting to watch, there are several events that definitely deserve your attention, especially if you are interested in betting.
Naturally, the ones that are a part of the Grand Slam are the preferred option for most bettors, and for a reason. These tournaments bring together the best players in the world, which is why most bookies create special promos, additional markets, and loads of other surprises.
Unfortunately, there are only a few GS events, so unless you bet on other tournaments, you will have to wait a long time before the next one begins. That’s why it is essential to take a look at a few other events that you can bet on. Speaking of betting, take a look at this tutorial about how to bet on tennis, and you will learn a few handy tips and tricks.
BNP Paribas Open
The first tourney that you should take a look at is the BNP Paribas Open. Even though it is not a part of the Grand Slam, this is considered to be one of the most prestigious competitions in tennis. That’s why it often brings together nearly half a million fans from different parts of the world.
This tournament takes place in the U.S (Indian Wells), which is often considered to be a good tourist destination as well. What’s interesting about BNP Paribas Open is that it’s a Premier Mandatory event on the women’s tour and a Masters 1000 on the men’s. Hence, you can often find loads of world-class tennis players.
The next top-tier tournament that you should look out for is the ATP finals. In case you didn’t know, this event was first held in 1970, but it has gone through a lot of changes since then. It usually takes place in November and is held at the O2 arena in London. However, the organizers decided to move the ATP Finals to Turin for 2021, which will make it even more interesting.
Don’t forget to check if the bookie you’ve chosen has any special promos or other rewards for this competition because the ATP Finals usually features the top eight players in the world. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that Roger Feder is the most successful player (for now).
If you are a big tennis fan, you might remember that this tournament was called the WTA Tour Championships. It takes place every year, and it is a part of the Women’s Tennis Association.
This tournament gives the opportunity to watch some of the best tennis matches in the world because it has the largest prize pool, apart from the Grand Slam events. Thus, it attracts the best tennis players in the world. Once the players qualify for the WTA Finals, they have to play in a round-robin format.
