Tennis Betting: Russell beats Fish in three sets
By Andrew Scott Saturday, 3 August 2013 02:08
Mardy Fish’s tennis betting fans were disappointed to see that the player had an unsatisfactory return to action at the BB&T Atlanta Open when he lost to Michael Russell.
Price per head sportsbooks saw that over the past year, 31-year-old Fish – well known for his very good tennis odds – was hampered by health and fitness problems, with the player having to contend with a heart issue.
Fish, who is a former top-10 ranked player and a favourite with many tennis betting fans, played this season in only two tournaments, with his last appearance coming in April in a low-profile Challenger.
But tennis betting fans thought that in Atlanta the player could advance as he took the first set, only for Russell to hit back with a 4-6 6-2 7-5 win and very good tennis odds.
On the ATP website, Russell said: “I played fantastic. Mardy’s such a great competitor. I thought he played really well, first match back in four months.
“I thought it was a really high quality match. Both of us, on big points, were coming up with great shots. It’s a positive for both of us going into the summer.”
Tennis betting fans saw that Lleyton Hewitt, former US Open and Wimbledon champion, had to seriously struggle to defeat Rhyne Williams, with the seventh-seed player eventually winning at 7-6 (8/6) 6-4, and price per head sportsbooks saw great action on the court in this match.
Third seed Ivan Dodig was also able to survive a scare when he edged past Ricardas Berankis 6-1 6-7 (3/7) 6-3, setting up a meeting in the quarter-finals with Hewitt.
