Every week of the season I record and monitor the prices of tennis tournament winners.

My figures are into a fourth year now and the trend for Outright Winners and Runners-Up (finalists) priced at double-figure+ odds (10/1+) stands at firmly above 50%.

So far in 2019, from the 72 events played:

  • 58% of Outright Winners have been at 10/1+
  • 75% of Runners-Up (Each Way places) have been at 10/1+
  • 67% of all Finalists have been at 10/1+

In 2018, 62% of all Finalists were at double figures at bigger. In 2017, that number was 59%.

And when I say double figures+, many of those prices are much bigger than 10/1. For example, so far this year we’ve seen:

  • Trophies lifted at odds of 33/1, 50/1, 66/1, 80/1, 100/1 and 150/1
  • Along with Each Way runners-up for half-the-odds payouts from Outright Winner prices of 40/1, 50/1, 66/1, 80/1 and 100/1

In the last month, from the French Open to Wimbledon and the ATP & WTA tournaments in-between, a total of 15 events have been played and 10 of the 15 winners (67%) have been at 10/1+.

That includes Simona Halep winning Wimbledon at 18/1, and Ashleigh Barty claiming the French Open at 22/1.

Teenager for New York...

The next Grand Slam on the calendar is the US Open in New York next month. We’ll be building up a little ‘book’ of early-bird, big-price picks for Flushing Meadows...

We already have one name down on the list. Teenager Amanda Anisimova was first flagged up back in September as a 150/1 shot for the US Open 2019. We returned to the topic with the 17-year-old at a top price 66/1 come April.

Since then, the big-hitting American teenager has reached the French Open semi finals – a significant breakthrough at Grand Slam level for any player at any age.

Wimbledon saw Amanda stumble in the 2nd Round. But hard courts are her best surface and the US Open fits the bill this summer...

At the Australian Open on hard courts in January, Anisimova was one round off the quarter finals – only losing to eventual finalist and runner-up, Petra Kvitova. At the French Open on clay this spring, she was only beaten in the semis by Barty, who went on to take the trophy.

Anisimova – who will turn 18 during this year’s US Open – is a former Junior champion in New York. She won that US Open Junior title in 2017, beating an even younger girl by the name of Cori Gauff in the final (Gauff has just made a name for herself by making the 4th Round at Wimbledon, at just 15 years of age).

Amanda Anisimova is one to watch during this summer’s ‘US Open Series’ of North American hard court events. If she starts running into form between now and the big one in New York, then her current US Open price of 33/1 is likely to drop again.
