If there’s one criticism that can be labelled at the women’s game, especially when it comes to the US Open, it’s that there are too few memorable finals. Those following the Tennis betting online will be hoping for that to change this year.

The 1970s and ‘80s featured a number of close match-ups between some of the greatest players ever to pick up a racquet.

Evonne Goolagong Cawley was involved in three epic finals – losing all three. She twice took the opening set...

The 30 slams played between 2005 and 2010 brought just four new major winners. Of these Kim Clijsters and Amelie Mauresmo won at least one more slam, making it easy to identify the favourites in this era of nine different slam winners. There have been two new slam winners already this year and anyone looking at online betting UK should bear this in mind.

The talent pool is undoubtedly bigger than ever, but the era of the once-dominant Williams sisters is drawing to a close. The injuries...

Though it hardly compares to the frustrating wait British tennis fans have had for a home player to win the Wimbledon singles, Americans feel another US men’s singles winner is long overdue.
There was a time when American players dominated the event. In fact, it has happened twice in the open era, firstly when Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe battled it out in the late 1970s and early ‘80s.

Connors won the first of his five singles titles in 1974, but there would be no all-US...

Though British tennis fans will all say the greatest thrill of all would be to see one of their own win a Wimbledon singles title, it’s at the US Open where we’ve had our best opportunities.
Twice in the last 14 years a British player has reached the final. Maybe if Andy Murray gets that far again this year it will be a case of third time lucky?
Canadian-born Greg Rusedski found it hard to shake off the accusation that he was a tennis mercenary during his early days as a naturalised...

It is a tale of contrasting fortunes building up to the US Open for the current world number one and a woman looking capable of taking back that spot.

Current world number one Caroline Wozniacki has been having a nightmare time and suffered a second successive early exit from the Western and Southern Open.

The Dane lost 6-4 7-5 to American teenager Christina McHale in Cincinnati and that came only a week after a first round exit in Toronto. Those who bet on US Open...
