Surely the tennis player that you have bet on, or his opponent, has retired, and you do not know what happens with your bet. Each bookie has different rules on tennis retreats and in this article we will help you to clarify all your doubts about the outcome of your bet, depending on each type of bookie.
There are three types of bookies in this sense. Match bookie, set bookie, and point bookie. First, we will analyze what each type consists of.
To this group belong the bookies that only take for granted the bets in which the game has been completed in its entirety. However, there are particularities in each bookie that we will analyze later.
In these bookies it is necessary to complete a set to consider your bets are valid.
This group includes bookies that consider bets or losers the bets once the first point of the match is completed.
It is very important to be aware of these details because sometimes we will opt for one or other bookies depending on their rules and the risk of injury that exists in that game to benefit, or not be harmed by it.
Next we will analyze each bookie with all its peculiarities.
Betting on the winner of the match
All bets will be void in the event that a match begins but is not completed, with the exception of the disqualification of a player once the match has started, in which case the player / team that qualifies for the next round or is officially proclaimed As the winner, he will also be considered the winner for betting purposes.
Total Games Markets / Handicap Games
All bets will be void in case of abandonment, disqualification or change of area midway through the match, unless there is no possible way for the set and / or the game to be played until its natural conclusion without determining the result of said market unconditionally.
Ex. 1. If a set is abandoned to 4-4: More / Less bets of a maximum of 9.5 games in the set, will be determined as won / lost respectively, since the regular conclusion of the set would be of at least 10 games; More / Less bets will be void from a minimum of 10.5 games.
Ex. 2. If a match to 3 sets is abandoned to 6-4 2-6: More / Less bets of a maximum of 23.5 games during the match, will be determined as won / lost respectively, since the regular ending of the match would be at least 24 games; More / Less bets will be void from a minimum of 24.5 in games.
Ex. 3. If a match to 3 sets is abandoned to 6-4 4-6 5-5: Bets on players with a handicap of +2.5 or more will be determined as winners. Bets on players with a handicap of -2.5 will be determined as losers. Bets on a draw with a handicap of +/- 3 or more will be determined as losers. All bets with a handicap of -2 to +2 will be void.
Betting on the set (2-0, 0-2, 2-1, 1-2, and similar for matches to 5 sets)
Bets will be void if the set number of sets is not completed, or if it changes.
In order for bets to prevail, the match must be completed. All bets will be void in case of disqualification or abandonment.
* INTERWETTEN: In the case of this bookies, they will be valued as losses if they could not be won, even if the match had continued until the end of the regulation game time (for example, set bet “Player A wins 2- 0 “player A leaves during the second set after having lost the first set, the rest of options, 2-1, 0-2, 1-2, will be considered canceled and will be valued with a fee of 1.0).
Therefore, we see that Interwetten in this case behaves differently than the other point bookies, giving up lost 2-0 in case of having lost the first set, even if the match is not completed in its entirety.
Set markets, the game, the break or similar
All bets will be void in the event that a disqualification or abandonment occurs during a set, game or specific point, unless the bet has already been determined. That is, if the set, game, or point, has been disputed in its entirety and it has fallen from one side or the other, the bets will be considered valid.
BETFAIR (Update 2018)
Special mention for BETFAIR that has different consideration depending on the type of market, is therefore SET BOOKIE AND POINT BOOKIE. For the match betting markets, if a player or pair withdraws from a match of an ATP, WTA, Challenger Tour, Grand Slam, Davis Cup, Federation Cup or Hopman Cup, the player or the pair that passes to the next Round (or win the tournament in the case of a final) will be considered a winner (unless the withdrawing player or pair does so before the first set ends, in which case the match bets will be void).
Bets placed on other tournaments or matches (such as ITF or exhibition matches) and bets on other markets (ie markets other than match betting) will be void in the event that a player or pair withdraws ( regardless of whether the withdrawal occurs during or after the first set), unless, in the case of bets in other markets, the result of the bet has been determined unequivocally before the time of withdrawal (in which case, the bet will be valid and settled accordingly).
Winner of the match
If a tennis match ends due to the abandonment of one of the players, the bet “Who will win?” Will be considered valid as soon as the first set of the match ends. For purposes of betting, only the player who is declared the winner by the seat judge or will go to the next round officially will be considered the winner. The same will apply to “doubles” matches.
Total games / Handicap games
In the event that a player is a winner because his opponent withdraws before the set number of sets has been completed, all Handicap bets from that match will be declared void unless at the time of withdrawal they had already I was able to determine a result for these bets.
Betting on the set
In the case of “correct score” bets, the total number of sets required to win the match must be completed. If a player wins the match before the full number of sets ends, all correct marker bets on that match will be void. Also in this case, set bookie such as Marathonbet, define in their rules that “bets will be lost to the set that can no longer be given as a result”. That is, if you bet on 2-0 of Nadal vs Federer, and the first set is won by Federer, your bet would be declared as loser.
For Apuestas de Murcia, if the abandonment occurs before the end of the 1st set all the predictions will be canceled, if the abandonment occurs at a later time after the end of the 1st Set, it will be considered as a losing prognosis, assigning the winner the number maximum of Sets required for the victory (3 or 5) and the loser the sets that he has played and won in full.
Markets of set, game, point, or similar.
In these cases, almost all bookies act in the same way, giving validity to bets already resolved at the time of withdrawal. Therefore, if a point, game, or set has not ended in its entirety, these bets will be determined as void. With the exception, again, of Murcia Betting, which determines for the case of “Winner of the set”: If the abandonment occurs before the end of the 1st set all forecasts will be canceled, if the abandonment occurs at a later time At the end of the 1st Set, it will be considered as a losing prognosis in that type of bet started and that is not resolved. Therefore, for this bookie the bets to the set in question are valid, as soon as this starts.
Winner of the match
In the event that the indicated number of sets is not played by decision of the judge or the official judge of the match or the official organizer, or a withdrawal occurs in the match, the winner determined by this will be the final winner, regardless of of how many points have been played match. That is to say, for the purposes of betting, as soon as the first match point is disputed, the winner bets are valid and will be winners / losers depending on the player who advances the round.
Total games / Handicap games
Betting “Total games” and “Handicap games”: If a match is considered finished by the judges of the event, for whatever reason, before the entire match is played completely, “Total games” bets and “Handicap games” will remain valid in case of having a certain result at the time of the end of the event. If there is no certain result, all the predictions of those bets will be canceled.
Betting on the set
If a player withdraws throughout the match, the bets that have already been settled will be valid (for example, winner of the first game, winner of the first set, etc.)
In the event that the game or set on which a bet was made would not have concluded at the time of the player’s withdrawal, the bet will be void.
* Vivelasuerte: (Final Result) If a tennis event ends before its scheduled completion by abandoning one of the betting options it will be considered a losing prognosis, in this case the winner is assigned the maximum number of Sets (3 or 5) ) and the loser the sets he has won. Ex. To three sets: 2-1, 2-0, 1-2 or 0-2 Ex. To five sets: 3-2, 3-1, 3-0, 2-3, 1-3 or 0-3 .
We observe that Vivelasuerte behaves identically to Murcia Betting in this section. Example: If in a Nadal vs Federer, Nadal wins the first set 6-2, but withdraws from the game, the result for betting purposes is 1-2 for Federer. If the one that retires is Federer after that same first set, the official result for Vivelasuerte is 2-0 for Nadal. Similarly 1-3 or 3-0 if it is to 5 sets.
Markets of set, game, point or similar.
In the case of both Retabet and Codere, only bets that have already been settled will be valid. For this, the corresponding point, game or set must have been completed. As for Vivelasuerte: Winner (1st Set), Winner (2nd Set), etc. It is a betting modality in which it is predicted which of the participants will be the winner of the corresponding SET. If a tennis event ends before its scheduled completion due to the abandonment of one of the betting options, it will be considered a losing prognosis in that betting modality that has been initiated and that has not been resolved.
Therefore, Vivelasuerte considers the bets on the set to be valid once this has started, and declares winner to the opponent of the retiring player.
