Injuries before and during the Australian Open

The tennis season’s structure is quite amazing.It never ceases to amaze me how in December everything is pretty much dead, from a tennis traders perspective,  then as soon as the fireworks are over on new year’s eve, there are over 30 tennis matches available for trading. And it’s not like these are just any matches.These are high quality matches, with top players taking part.

Of course the Australian Open has a big part to play here, as all players are trying to gain as much form as possible before the first Grand Slam of the year. But the positioning of this event, so early in the calendar, has always been a problem for a large number of players, mainly due to the fact of not having enough time to prepare. And as a consequence, this has led players to be more prone to injuries; and similar to what we have seen in the past, this season we will have a number of players that will have the misfortune to get injured before or during the AO.

US Open 2011: First Week Review and Second Week Preview

First Week Review

Compared to this year’s Australian and French Open, it’s been somewhat of a “slow” start to the tournament trading wise, but profitable nonetheless. This fact is also confirmed by the numbers, such as the total withdrawals, which have been at a record high. 17 in total to be exact.Things started to pick up in the last few days and besides the great quality matches to trade during the first few days (Ferrero vs Monfils, Young vs Wawrinka, Murray vs Haase which was  probably the most predictable comeback from 2 sets down) we had matches like Schiavone vs Pavlyuchenkova, Tsonga vs Fish and Wozniacki vs Kuznetsova. But let’s take a look at what we can take from this first week, both for the short and long term future.

Wimbledon 2011 Preview

It’s that time of the year again, when the relatively short grass court tennis season reaches it’s climax with the start of the Wimbledon championships.

This year, the pre-Wimbledon tournaments have had an interesting twist to them as the two main favorites in the mens draw didn’t show us much tennis by which to asses their grass court form. Federer withdrew from the tournament in Halle while Nadal wasn’t 100 % for the tournament at Queens Club and ended up losing to Tsonga. But let’s dive right in and take a closer look at both the mens and womens draws and see where the trading opportunities might lie and where we can find value. [click to continue…]
