I use a combination of Willhill, Gamebookers, Unibet and Betfair. I use the former three mainly for faves and combos, and Betfair usually for underdogs as the prices are often a lot better than the set odds.

I'll be adding a 1-ball book to my "portfolio" for the 2008 season...I'm usually on top of most of the injury news floating around, and I missed out on a number of opportunities to profit from first set retirements, this season.

Can anyone recommend a good 1-ball bookie, without pitiful limits? Thanks.

Stan James is almost always first up with prices and you can get some unbelievable value there if you're quick enough. They've also reduced their overround on tennis matches in the last few months so the odds have improved there as well. The downside is that there isn't a whole lot of variety and the game handicaps when offered are European rather than Asia which bugs me.(ie there are 3 options including the draw) They're also one of the few companies to offer outrights on almost all Mickey Mouse events and again some good value is available if you're early. Customer service is very good there too.

Betfair is good too because the odds are generally better than anywhere else even taking the commision into account(particularly on big-priced dogs as Jez mentioned) and they offer odds on every match (bar Davydenko atm) while regular books often don't price up early round MM matches until the very last second. Pinnacle seems to have the best odds of the regular books. If you're betting regularly even the slightly better prices can make a huge difference over the course of a season.

As for 1-ball books, I have an account with Bluesq but I've never bet more than 100 e there (and generally sucked) so I'm not sure about their limits but I haven't heard any bad stories about them in that regard. There's probably much better around but it's one to look into.

I would second BlueSq as a one ball book, been with them a few years and have had no problems. I only use them for injury doubts obviously but stakes of a few hundred seem fine.

Betfair- the odds there are always better, you can use it for trading as every match is live in play. Also you will find great prices for the underdogs, not only with 0.2 but sometimes with 1.0 or even more. It is the biggest exchange.
sportingbet- the worst bookmaker for tennis.
William Hill- good casino, sometimes the odds for sportsetting are also good, also great service, they answer the emails very fast.
bwin- great bookmaker with a lot of choices to bet on, but the odds sometimes are not good if you want to win.

Mainly, use exchanges if you want to win real money, and open another account at may be bwin or william hill.

IMO williamhill are pretty good all year round for the amount they put up they always have it but i think there prices can be a little shit, bet365 i would also say are pretty good,

i myself dont like to use corals and ladbrokes they dont cover enough tennis and can take time to put up amongst other things but just my opinion
