TENNIS BETTING – WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PLAYER RETIRES?

When it comes to betting on tennis, punters have to remember that certain bookmakers have different rules on retirements and player withdrawals during the match.

Player retirements can cause gamblers a great deal of frustration. Most bookmakers will refund any bet in its entirety if a player retires from a match. Even if it’s on match point and your bet is almost certainly going to win! So it’s worthwhile knowing what tennis betting rules each bookmaker has in place before placing a bet. Especially if you’re into arbitrage betting and don’t want to lose large amounts of money as a result of retirements.

On the market today there are four main tennis rules regarding when a bet will be refunding for retirements. They are as follows:

BALL SERVED:

Some bookmakers will allow a bet to stand as long as a ball has been served. So basically, as long as the match begins, any bets placed on the head to head market will stand, even if a player retires.

FIRST SET COMPLETED:

Many bookmakers have  a ‘1st set completed’ system in place for retirements. That means that if the first set is completed, all bets will stand, regardless of any retirements.However, if a player retires before the first set has been completed, all head to head bets will be voided/cancelled, and you will get a full refund.

SECOND SET COMPLETED:

Just like the first set completed rule, some bookmakers need at least two sets to be completed for a bet to stand. That means that if a player retires after two sets have been completed, bets will stand. However, if a player retires before two sets have been completed, bets will be void and refunded.

MATCH COMPLETED:

This is where the entire match needs to be completed for any bets to stand. Basically, a player can’t retire without the bet being void.

Here is a look at what rules some of the major bookmakers have in place for tennis betting:
