A hell of a run at 50/1...

50/1 Anderson proves to One to Watch...
Our recent Wimbledon 2018 – Ones to Watch report tells you pretty much everything you need to know about our back-the-underdogs approach...
We had two players on our pre-tournament list of outsiders. In the Women’s, 50/1 shot Magdalena Rybarikova was knocked out in the very first round.
But in the Men’s, our 50/1 ‘One to Watch’ Kevin Anderson put together a hell of a run – making his way all the way to the final, giving a 25/1 Each Way payout...
Along the way, Kevin took out the great Roger Federer in the quarter finals, coming from two sets down to win 3-2. Before going on to come out on the right side of the longest Wimbledon semi final ever played – eventually out-lasting John Isner in an epic fifth set that finished 26 games to 24.
Big guys threatening the big boys...
The 6’8” Anderson certainly earned his place in the final. And just like Marin Cilic – another tall, big server standing 6’6” – Kevin has now reached two Grand Slam finals in the last 12 months (Outright Winner prices in brackets):
Wimbledon 2017 final – R.Federer (11/4) beat M.Cilic (28/1)
US Open 2017 final – R.Nadal (11/4) beat K.Anderson (150/1)
Australian Open 2018 final – R.Federer (2/1) beat M.Cilic (33/1)
French Open 2018 final – R.Nadal (1/2) beat D.Thiem (10/1)
Wimbledon 2018 final – N.Djokovic (11/2) beat K.Anderson (50/1)
So, while the likes of Federer, Nadal and now Djokovic are still winning the biggest prizes, there is certainly plenty of scope to look to the outsiders at much bigger, Each Way prices.
We’ll be looking to pick out another huge price or two in our next free Ones to Watch report ahead of the next Grand Slam tournament – the US Open in New York, which takes place from 27th August – 9th September.
Before then, I’ll be in touch with more tennis info & advice for you, too.
Thanks for all your emails regarding Anderson. It seems plenty of you were on at 50/1 and got a nice Each Way payout...
