We’re offering fantastic odds on the tournaments, which include men, women, singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
Tennis at the Brazil 2016
Stars from all over the world will be meeting in Brazil for a chance to get their hands on the gold medal but the competition is stiff, full of players with plenty of experience and grand slam titles to their name. The four favourites for the men’s singles tournament include Djokovic, Murray, Federer and Nishikori. Murray’s spirits are as high as they can be, after winning the London tennis tournament for the second time and he is looking to extend his winning form in both the singles tournament as well the doubles, where he’ll be teaming up with his brother Jamie for a chance to win the gold. Federer, the former number one has very lucrative odds, currently at 10/1 to win the gold for Switzerland and although he’s 34 and not as fast as his golden years, his technical ability is sublime and an outright bet on him will yield high profits.
Serena Williams will be competing for the gold medal in both the singles and the doubles events, where she will be teaming up with her older sister Venus representing USA. Serena’s most recent London tennis tournament title will give her the confidence to win back to back titles and odds for her completing this achievement are currently at 13/10. Serena Williams is the complete tennis player – she’s tall, very strong and capable of attacking and defending with ease. Her powerful serve is what gives her competitive advantage and is also an extremely powerful weapon when playing in the doubles event. Angelique Kerber is the player to watch out for as she is very fast and very capable of upsetting opponents. Her matches are fast paced but lacks the power of Serena and she currently has odds of 8/1 to take home the gold.
The doubles event is where those dramatic and nail biting rallies take place. The Williams sisters will be in the spotlight for the women’s division and the Bryan Brothers are also the favourites representing USA. Bencic teamed up with the very experienced Martina Hingis to represent the Swiss team with odds of 5/1 but it’s the recent pairing of Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic which will be the talking point of the women’s doubles, as they already won a few tournaments since the start of the year, which includes their first Grand Slam title as a team. Odds for the French team taking the gold for the women’s doubles are currently at 4/1.Bet Now on Tennis
