Just wondering, going back to the start of the century, how many times has the #1 bookies fave for a Grand Slam NOT been one of Federer, Nadal or Djokovic? I think Murray might have been once or twice and then before that I'd imagine you have to go back to 2003?

Possibly '04 Roland Garros? I imagine Guillermo Coria was the favourite then.
That's a possibility. Are there any resources online that contain this information? I'd love to be able to go back and see the history of bookies favourites for slams.

Maybe Roddick at some point?

Roddick? Please.

Not sure why this is questionable - was he not the favourite at US Open 2003? Hopefully one of the stats experts here has the answer.

According to tennis-x.com, the bookies' favourites in 2003 were Hewitt (AO), Ferrero (RG), Federer (Wim), and Roddick (USO). I can't judge how reliable this source is.

Do you have a link for this?

Here for the US open:
2003 US Open Tennis Odds
and links to other tournaments on the same page.
This is really fascinating to read in retrospect, thank you! A shame that they only seem to have predictions for 2003 on there but still really cool.

I, personally, hate betting btw. I've seen many people losing everything ...

However, people do not understand what is all about. It's a game where the house always makes the money no matter what.

Well, of course that the house will give you some odds. Too many people are not educated enough. They don't understand some basic math.

It's all about the money and how people react. Go to your closest casino and watch what people do. Pay attention to lights, drinks coming etc.
