Evans wins the Battle of the Brits…

Dan Evans ran out a convincing 6-3, 6-2 winner over Kyle Edmund on Sunday afternoon. Evans franked his position as British No.1, crowned Battle of the Brits champion with that straight-sets win in the final.

We had a profitable week at the Battle of the Brits, largely thanks to a 9/1 set correct score on Andy Murray. Overall, our ROI at these new ‘exhibition’ events since May stands at 20%.

The National Tennis Centre in Roehampton will be on our screens again in July, with the Progress Tour Women’s Championship lined-up to start on 14th July.

I’d say last week’s event in England, as a TV broadcasting spectacle, was the best we’ve seen so far in these new post-lockdown playing conditions. It will be interesting to see if they use the outdoor courts at Roehampton for that women’s event next month. After all – it would’ve been Wimbledon around now…

New events this week…

No trip to SW19 for this year, then. But our new schedule is busy nonetheless.

Two new events added to our ‘alternative summer of tennis’ Calendar for this week are:

  • The DraftKings All-American Team Cup, which will be held at Peachtree Corners, Atlanta, Georgia
  • And the new, Australian leg of the UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) Series, being held in Sydney

The Australian event is already underway. The American team competition starts on Friday and runs over the weekend. Featuring the top eight American men in the current ATP world rankings.

As ever, I’ll keep your posted with my thoughts, research, findings – and any match picks and standout prices.

The real deal in August & September…

Along with July’s nice busy schedule of matches in the various new events across the globe (some of them even planning to have fans in the stands). The real deal for us will be the return of the main ATP & WTA Tours, which is on the official calendar for 3rd August with the women, and 14th August for the men.

After that, all being well, the US Open is planning to go ahead from 31st August.

And after waiting all summer for a Grand Slam, we might get two in a row. With the rearranged French Open in the book for a 27th September start, as it stands.

I’ll be back in the week with my latest take on the players, matches & markets, focusing in particular on those events in Atlanta and Sydney.

Enjoy the tennis,

Best wishes,

Oliver Upstone
