Every sportsbook has a different policy about retirements, you'll have to check with whatever you use. For example, PinnacleSports has a 2 set minimum condition, so if either player retires before 2 full sets are completed, the bet is void and you get your money back. However, if a player retires after 2 sets are completed, bets stand and have action.
I know most of you here are interested in other types of betting--not vBetting. But I like to vBet except I never know if there are going to be any matches up to bet on? It is now 5:33 in the Eastern U.S. time zone.
From the Hamburg site I know a match is already underway there. But there are no bets up for vBetting. I stayed up until 5 o'clock trying to vBet on the Nadal-Monfils Match in Rome, but finally gave up and went to bed only to learn the next day the Match went up at 5:09, but by the time I got up after staying up so late the Match had closed. Is there any way to determine if there are going to be any vBetting on a given day? Sorry I didn't mean to write a book!
I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.
