Betting Site: Ferrer beats Anderson and will now face Nadal
By Andrew Scott Monday, 9 June 2014 07:58
Betting sites all over the world were very impressed to see that David Ferrer made it to his tenth consecutive grand slam quarter-final as he defeated Kevin Anderson in four sets on Monday at Roland Garros.
Ferrer – a big favourite with betting sites and pay per head sportsbooks – was able to overcome the loss of a third-set tie-break, completing a 6-3 6-3 6-7 (5/7) 6-1 win, and the player will next face compatriot Rafael Nadal in a repeat of the final last year.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that 12 months ago, the Spaniard beat Anderson at the same stage in Paris, only losing five games along the way, but this time around the South African player was better equipped.
However, Ferrer was the one who eased two sets ahead, breaking his opponent three times in the first and once in the second as he was dominating from the baseline, and many people with a betting shop were at the edge of their seats with the action.
Then betting sites saw that Anderson broke first in the third to earn a lead of 3-1, even though Ferrer made an immediate response to get back on terms.
The set moved to a tie-break and, as he earned himself a mini-break, the South African would take it when a forehand was netted by Ferrer.
But price per head services and many people with a betting shop saw that Anderson’s joy was short-lived as the Spaniard moved up a gear, securing consecutive breaks as he raced in the fourth into a lead of 5-0.
Anderson held to avoid the humiliation of a ‘bagel’, but betting sites saw that it proved to be a temporary pardon as his opponent served out to confirm a win, with a very accurate forehand winner down the line that got the job done.
Top seed Rafael Nadal barely got out of second gear to clinch a very comfortable 6-1 6-2 6-1 win over Dusan Lajovic of Serbia.
Nadal – going after a ninth title at Roland Garros – overwhelmed his opponent from the back of the court, and Lajovic did not help his cause as he made 43 unforced errors.
