Familiar faces in Rogers Cup

Familiar faces in Rogers Cup

Federer and Nadal head the betting

The 128th renewal of the Rogers Cup comes from Montreal this week, and with major names in attendance, including Federer and Nadal, we’re sure to see plenty of interest in this one from tennis punters.

Coral have all your betting needs covered – play over 25 markets in each match, as well as the outright winner of the competition. Number one seed Novak Djokovic won the prize last year, but he is taking time out from the sport to arrest his recent slump in form, so we’ll have a new king. Click and bet.

Djokovic and Murray can’t defend

Will it be Kei Nishikori? The 27-year-old Japanese star blazed a trail of glory towards the final 12 months ago, eventually losing out to super Serb Novak in the decider, beaten 6-3, 7-5. Fairly convincing, of course, but he’ll be eager to go one better this time with Djokovic out of the way. It’s unlikely he’ll go on and win it, according to our traders, but they afford him the respect he deserves, trading 22/1 on Monday. Surely worth an interest.

Andy Murray scored the year before, but he’s not here either. The Scot has been troubled by a hip injury for most of this year, the same problem putting an end to his Wimbledon challenge when the going got tough. Victory in 2015 was Muzza’s third winner’s medal, meaning his absence leaves another gaping hole in the betting. The last man to bag this hardcourt event who has made the trip is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (2014), but the Frenchman arrives out of form, and is a 33/1 shot for that reason.

Rafa to upset Roger

With those absentees, and the recent formlines in tennis, it’s little surprise to see Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal battle it out at the head of the betting. Fed-Ex has already enjoyed a year to remember, winning the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles. He’s no stranger to success here either, coming out on top in 2004 and 2006, beating Roddick and Gasquet. Not the greatest CV, but it would be a brave punter who could write him off. The 35-year-old is 13/8 jolly.

If you want to oppose the shortest price – and we do – the one to follow is Rafael Nadal, currently second in the betting. No imagination shown in that one, but you’ll get no apologies from of us. Nadal is playing his best tennis again and when he gets back to beating Federer on a regular basis, he’ll know the journey is complete. Won this title for a third time in 2013, and he’s as sharp now as he was then. Loves the challenges the hardcourts bring, and the Spaniard is our ace at 7/2.
