Some Terms Explained:

Back: Low Stakes – use 10% of bank.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Lay: Low stakes – use 10% of bank.
Lay Heavy(LH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Likely 3 Setter – Worth considering laying the winner (or backing the loser) of the first set.
Hot Tip – I have more confidence in these tips. However, use normal stake sizes.

Tips are deemed unsuccessful at 40% loss of stake.

All odds shown with the tips are correct at time of publishing. Odds are often given several hours ahead of the event. If odds have changed, adjust your back/lay stake accordingly e.g. if I tip ‘Back at 1.5, Lay at 1.25’ – and back odds move to 1.6, adjust your lay odds to 1.35 – there are still 25 ticks between the back and lay odds.

Delay and Trade!! It’s OK to place your trades before the match starts, but in my opinion, waiting 2/3 games before placing your trades is the safest way to trade. This is advised in many of the articles below. To delay and trade will give you a good feel for the match. Delay and Trade is a MUST if you are Backing Heavy. Delaying is advised mostly for the women’s game, as early breaks of serve are more likely.  Please read the relevant article below.

Some folks have asked why I call the tips ‘Betfair Tennis Trading Tips’ and have asked if the tips can be used on other betting exchanges. I use Betfair for all my trading because Betfair has the best liquidity. All of my prices are taken from Betfair.
Betfair Tennis Trading gives you the best opportunities to make profits. You can use the trading tips on other exchanges – there may be small price differences – but these shouldn’t matter. If you decide to use a site other that Betfair for trading, make sure that the liquidity is there.

    Again girls’ tennis: They really seem to be less predictable as the males? The Vinci game went fully into the wrong direction and she was never able to go to the lead.
    The figures and stats show a different picture and that’s why Patrick suggested this game to bet in the way I did.
    But you’re recovering, Patrick! Hope to follow you further, the way seems to be ok…

      Hi Christian – they say the mens game is more predictable, but not for me always. My stats are a little better on the womens side than in the mens in both betting and trading. Some tipsters completely avoid the women’s game, but I have no problems with it at all…my selection criteria prove that the womens game can be as lucrative as the mens…

  • Christian Dittrich Posted May 2, 2014 10:56 pm

    Yeah, Patrick, I agree from the financial point of view. But see just the recent days: Vinci or Sam Stosur the day before (losing 0-6 when being the fav!). Maybe the women produce more eye-catching results, your stats are the truth, for sure.
