The 140th US Open Tennis is set to take place on August 31, 2020 being one of the four of the international tournaments making up the Grand Slam Tournaments. However, due to the risks posed by the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, only the major title defenders and their contenders will be competing on the outdoor hard courts of New York City’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Although the U.S. Open tournament runs under the management of the International Tennis Federation, New York Governor Andrew Cuome imposed certain limitations as conditions to the holding of the tournament this coming August. Only the singles and doubles category of the men’s and the women’s championship matches will take place. The limitation demotes that mixed doubles, junior, qualifying games and wheelchair matches will not be held in the 140th Edition of US Open Tennis
The current US Open 2019 defending champions include Spain’s Rafael Nadal (Men’s Single); Canada’s Bianca Bianca Andreescu (Women’s Singles); Colombia’s Juan Sebastián Cabal and Robert Farah (Men’s Doubles); and Belgium’s Elise Mertens and Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka (Women’s Doubles).
Sports Betting on Tennis Matches
Betting on tennis matches, especially on major tournaments comprising the Grand Slam Tour, namely the Australian Open, the French Open, the US Open and the Wimbledon. Statistics on global sports betting show that tennis betting markets rank second in the overall global sportsbook, with football enjoying the lead as the number one sports betting choice.
The main reason why many avid sports punters stake wagers on tennis matches is because unlike other sports competitions, nearly every day, there is alway a tennis tournament being held in some geographic location and at different time zones. Most of the tours occurring across the globe are organized and managed by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) usually through ATP Challenger Tour and Futures Tournaments.
Sports Betting a Dilemma for Many Asian Punters
While most Asians, particularly Indonesians are known for being avid sports bettors, they encounter difficulty in accessing trustworthy online gambling sites that offer sportsbooks. Unfortunately, their respective government has instituted measures aimed at blocking major European and UK Bookmakers from offering sports betting in Asian territories.
Still, to the delight of many Asian sports gamblers, they discovered that there are lesser known, but trustworthy Asian online casinos in their midst. To name one as an example, VSLOTS88 (www.vslots88.com ) is a PAGCOR-licensed online that also offers sports betting on soccer, tennis and other online gambling products; including betting on cock fight tournaments.
