Heys in betting
Heys in tennis bets are segments of the game into which a set is broken up. Tennis players fight in a game until someone wins six games (or seven if the score is 5:5). At the score of 6:6 – tie-break is played. Tennis players alternate games on their serves and receptions, and the game can be won as a result of four won draws or two won draws advantage if the game comes to the score “even”.
The number of games in tennis bets depends on the players’ ability to hold their serve. This is easier to do in men’s tennis, as the strength of the men’s serve is much higher than the women’s. In men’s tennis betting, even an outsider, whose odds of winning can reach 7.0-10.0, is able to hold his serve in single games.
Tennis betting on games should be played with a long-on. For example, you bet on the victory of the outsider in the first game on his serve, and he loses, in this case you need to double your bet and bet again on his victory already in the next game on his serve. As soon as you manage to win, a new chain starts.
It is necessary to limit the number of steps in the catch-up, so as not to burn out if the chosen player loses the set 0:6. It is important to choose tennis players who are capable of taking their serve against anyone.
In women’s tennis, it makes more sense to use the opposite principle – to bet on the receiving player. Women’s serves are not as strong and it is often easier for a player to win a game on someone else’s serve than on her own. In women’s tennis there are matches where the tennis players exchange breaks, in which case you can make good money on a single game.
Tips for Game Betting
When playing backgammon in play, it is important to choose the right bookmaker Parimatch. The strategy of betting Parimatch on games implies quick bets, because the intervals between the games are short. It is possible to bet during the serve of another tennis player, if it does not close the line on the games for the duration of the rally.
When choosing a tennis player, focus on his ability to take at least 2-3 games on his serve in the game. At the same time, he has to be an outsider in the game, so the odds of him winning his own serve should be around 1.6-2.0. With low odds this strategy does not work, but you should not chase high odds either, because a frank outsider is able to lose 0:6.
In women’s tennis, it is necessary to be guided by the opponent of the chosen tennis player. It makes sense to play against unstable tennis players who often commit double faults and do not have a strong serve.
The odds of a break are much higher than the odds of winning your serve, so it is possible to make more steps of catch-up play, and sometimes even one break in a game is enough to make a profit.
Peculiarities of betting on tennis matches
The popularity of tennis betting Parimatch is based on two features of this species:
- The tennis season lasts all year round and there is a wide range of events every day – morning, afternoon, evening and night, at any time of the day;
- There are no draws in tennis, and even if a match is not completed due to injury, there will still be a winner.
In tennis there is a clear gradation of competitions by level of prize money and prestige. Four Grand Slam tournaments stand out in the calendar: the Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open. Each event has its own strategy, features and subtleties familiar to professional players, which will be discussed below.
The Australian Open, held on the courts of Melbourne, opens the big tennis season. The competition is traditionally held on hard surface, which is evaluated as an average speed – in the men’s section slightly more than 75% of players hold serve, which shows that the serving factor is not as important as at Wimbledon or the US Open.
When betting Parimatch on the Australian Open, one always relies on the weather factor – it is often hot and stuffy in the middle of January in Melbourne, and the heat becomes the main test for tennis players. In such a situation, local athletes like Nick Kirgios, Bernard Tomic, young tennis players from Australia and New Zealand have more chances to prove themselves. Apart from them, the representatives of Asia, warm countries can experience more comfort on the courts of Melbourne.
A classic example is the duel between Brazilian Cuerten and Dutch Van Lottum at the Australian Open-2004, when in the fifth set the athletes, unable to take their serve, focused on someone else’s, which is really typical for women’s tennis, but not for men’s tennis. After spending five hours in the Australian heat, even a physically strong athlete turns into a squeezed-out lemon. In such a situation, the one who has stronger character wins.
Next on the ATP and WTA tour calendar is the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris. This is the most prestigious of all clay tournaments, crowning the series of competitions on the slowest tennis surface. Here the serve factor is of the minimum possible importance, and the focus is on concentration, patience and strong nerves, because the draws are much longer than on hard and grass tournaments.
Clay tournaments are the traditional domain of the Spanish, French and Latin American players. Grass specialists call them “worms” for their ability to dig in on the baseline and play with long balls. The tactic of the game comes down to the ability to distribute the ball in the corners of the court with small but accurate strokes and waiting for the error of the opponent.
Right behind Roland Garros on the tennis calendar is Wimbledon, the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament of our times. It is held in the tennis tour’s holy of holies, the London Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, on a unique grass surface. Many tennis players spend no more than two dozen tournaments in their career on grass, due to the fact that this surface is very difficult to cultivate and is found mainly in Britain.
There is a two-week break between Roland Garros and Wimbledon, and only a player who is accustomed to playing on grass can properly prepare for a grass session. There is no such thing as a grass session, there are a couple of tournaments before and a couple of tournaments after Wimbledon, and that’s it. That’s why it’s inexpedient to tune up your style of play for the grass surface.
Wimbledon ends in the first and second rounds for most “worms”, and there are few grass-court specialists. The court surface at Wimbledon is one of the fastest on the tour. This is why serving comes first, and the tactic of the game is often “serve and go to the net”. For a player with a decent serve and fast feet, Wimbledon becomes a favorite tournament. Among other things, you have to make less wide steps here than at Roland Garros, and the fatigue factor is not as critical.
The U.S. Open closes out the Grand Slam program. There is a group of players on the tour who hold tournaments exclusively in the Americas, and this tournament becomes their crowning hour. Interestingly, among these athletes are not only Americans, but also many Europeans who study tennis at American academies. Most of them are from Eastern Europe.
US Open is a tournament with an ideal hard surface, which takes place in comfortable conditions, without Australian heat and English rains. That is why sensations are extremely rare here, and very often someone from the top three in the world ranking wins in the men’s singles. The only surprise is those frequenters of the American tennis tournaments who are well adapted to the time zone. But as the quarterfinals approach, the top players are still on the grid, because the US Open with its perfect hard court is suitable for everyone.
