Tennis Betting: Nadal and Djokovic qualify for ATP World Tour Finals

The first two players officially qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals are arguably tennis odds favorites to win it. Serbian Novak Djokovic is fresh off his title victory at Wimbledon where he defeated Roger Federer. On the other hand, Roger Nadal will also be part of the 8-man tournament, and will most likely be looking to bounce back from his disappointing elimination at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. However, Federer himself is next in line to join the competition where he has been more successful than any other man in history.

In addition to the Swiss, the remaining spots will be filled by six players among the following men:

·       Stanislas Wawrinka

·       Tomas Berdych

·       Grigor Dimitrov

·       Andy Murray

·       David Ferrer

·       Kei Nishikori

·       Ernest Gulbis

·       Milos Raonic

·       Marin Cilic

·       Roberto Bautista

·       Fabio Fognini

·       Alexandr Dolgopolov

·       Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

·       Kevin Anderson

·       John Isner

·       Feliciano Lopez

·       Gael Monfils

As far as teams are concerned, Americans Bob and Mike Bryan are the only ones who have secured their participation. They may be joined by Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjić, Julien Benneteau and Édouard Roger-Vasselin, Łukasz Kubot and Robert Lindstedt, Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares, Michaël Llodra and Nicolas Mahut, Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen, and Marcel Granollers and Marc López, though others teams can’t be ruled out either. As with individual competition, the eight qualified teams are divided into two groups of four.  

The 2014 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals take place until 10-17 November, but devoted tennis betting buffs are already choosing their favorites, even among those who have not qualified yet. Though the favorites are and will be the aforementioned Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer, as players continue to qualify we will certainly see pretty attractive odds for underdogs, as well as sleeper picks. Both individual and team selections may be affected by the current goings-on in Hamburg, Germany, and Bogota, Colombia.
