The 2020 Olympic Games are already underway and some of the most exciting events in Tokyo will be the tennis tournaments! Two of the big questions are: will World No 1 Novak Djokovic finally clinch the gold medal after winning a bronze one at the 2008 Olympics? And also, will Naomi Osaka make Japan proud by becoming an Olympic champion? So let’s take a closer look at the Men’s and Women’s contests and find out…
Will Djokovic win a Golden Grand Slam?
Novak Djokovic has been unstoppable since the start of 2021, having won the first 3 Grand Slam championships of the year. Djokovic has the unique opportunity to repeat Germany’s Steffi Graf feat, who remains the only tennis player to have won all four majors in a season PLUS an Olympics gold medal. That happened back in 1988. Now the Serb begins his quest for Olympic glory against Bolivia’s Hugo Dellien, ranked No 139 in the world. It goes without saying that Djokovic is the absolute favourite to go through, that’s why you can look for a more ‘unusual’ bet – like the number of games during the 1st set, for example. If you believe that Dellien can get at least 3 games, you can bet on over 8.5 games to be played during the set (let’s say, Djokovic wins 6-3).
RECOMMENDED BET: Get 1.97 on Over 8.5 games to be played in the 1st set between Djokovic and Dellien
(Home) Advantage Osaka!
The Women’s tournament in Tokyo will be all about home star Naomi Osaka. Seeded 2nd, she kicks off her battle for the gold medal against Saisai Zheng from China. Osaka is the big favourite to win the match, that’s why if you’re looking for some bigger odds, you might want to bet once again on the total amount of games during the 1st set. If you reckon Osaka will win 6-1 or 6-2, for example, you can bet on under 8.5 games to be played…
RECOMMENDED BET: Get 1.84 on Under 8.5 games to be played in the 1st set between Zheng and Osaka
