Wimbledon 2009 features the most prestigious and coveted tennis betting championship of the year. Like golf’s Masters, Wimbledon is a tradition unlike any other. Wimbledon 2009 offers greater intrigue than ever before as Roger Federer is looking for tennis betting redemption after losing an epic Wimbledon final to Rafael Nadal last year.
Federer looks well poised to take Wimbledon 2009 as he is coming off his first ever tennis betting victory on the clay of the French Open, to complete the final missing piece of his sports betting resume. But the sting of defeat on the grass court of the All England Lawn Tennis Championships last year has not been fully cured and Federer looks like a man possessed to take back the title that he believes rightfully belongs to him in Wimbledon 2009.
Federer’s task for redemption at Wimbledon 2009 may be easier than expected as Nadal is suffering from a knee injury that some fear may keep him out of Wimbledon 2009. Nadal was expected to win the French Open but that knee injury was a major impediment.
Andy Murray sometimes serves as the forgotten man after Federer and Nadal but he will enter Wimbledon 2009 as perhaps the ultimate sleeper and best value on the board as he is known as the best player to never win a major title.
Another man to watch for Wimbledon 2009 is Novak Djokovic, who is coming off an abysmal performance at the French Open in which he lost to Philipp Kohlschreiber. He did win the 2008 Australian Open, however, which proves his credentials.
Another potential sleeper for Wimbledon 2009 is Andy Roddick who is having his best season ever and has solid momentum heading into the grass courts of Wimbledon.
Not only does Nadal have knee problems but he also faces a tough draw as he will have a likely 2nd round matchup against Lleyton Hewitt, who was a former number 1 ranked player. He also would be on a collision course with Murray in the semifinals. On the ladies side the Williams sisters are set on the brackets for a potential finals match!
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
