From day one, up until the very end, this year’s edition of the US open, has been full of tennis trading opportunities.
In this post, I’ll try to go over some of the things that took place during this tournament and also look at how the two finals unfolded.
The last grand slam of the year started yesterday.
As you probably already know, the four grand slams have a very important place in a tennis trader’s calendar.
One of the reasons I like trading grand slam matches, is that, beyond the importance they have, the matches are best of five sets (on the mens side).
This in itself raises opportunities.
And some of the trading opportunities that arise, are the comebacks from two sets down.
Wimbledon starts today. I’m looking forward to another two weeks of tennis trading on the grass, full of trading opportunities, similar to what we’ve seen in the pre-Wimbledon tournaments.

Before we move forward and enter the month of February, which is a more “relaxed” month from a tennis trading perspective, let’s take a look at some of the things that took place during this year’s edition of the Australian Open and what we can take away. [continue reading…]
The first week of tennis trading in 2012 has come and gone. It’s been an interesting week due to a series of events, but probably the most highlighted fact was that we have had a series of injuries and retirements. Federer, Florian Mayer, Polona Hectog, Serena Williams, Steve Darcis, Tommy Haas, Bogomolov Jr., Lisicki, Penneta, Clijsters, Georges, Volandri and Kuznetsova have all withdrawn from matches in the first or early second week tournaments. Some reasons of retirement are more serious than others, but overall there have been 13 withdrawals at the time I am writing this post. The good news is that most of the mentioned players will be fit and ready to play at the Australian Open is less then a week’s time.
Now let’s take a look at what actually took place during the first week.
