Time to shift gears as hard court season is here. Both the ATP and WTA leave the grass surfaces as Wimbledon has concluded. Now it is on to surer bounces, fewer slips, and a slightly lower serve. How will this affect those that had success during the previous fortnight? Here at APEX Tennis Betting, we will look at the qualities of those we want to embrace or avoid in the upcoming summer months until the US Open arrives at Flushing Meadows.
Hard Court Season : ATP Side
Andy Murray met with success at Wimbledon. However, many of the facets that propelled him will not work as well on the hard courts. Our friends at BookieStar.com have an article denoting the particular aspect of success for hardcourts. Needless to say, Novak is the favorite over the field again with only Murray being considered a reasonable second option. Old timers like Federer and Nadal are now considered longshots. Wawrinka’s prospects improve while the younger generation including Raonic, Zverev, and Thiem might have to wait another year or two for slam success.
WTA : The Ladies
Serena is the favorite but goes down in value here. Her most potent dynamic is the serve and it goes down in value here. Human backboards like Radwanska and Halep blip up some because they can break more often. Even Kerber has less value because her serve is not an offensive weapon. This slam is very wide open and will come down to the draw. Fitness and mental toughness will rule the roost. Wait a few weeks to see who is taking to this surface before placing your futures at places like Americas Bookie.
