First Set Winner

We are sorry!

Currently there are no first set winner predictions!

This betting type is similar to match winner betting. The only difference is that instead of betting on the result of an entire match, you bet on the result of an individual set. It is simple and interesting, and is a two-way win or lose bet. At the beginning of the match, you can either bet on a player to win the first set or the next set. If your player wins the set, you win the bet and if they lose the set, you lose the bet. A set in tennis is made up of games. The first player who wins six games wins the set. If both the players reach six games, then a tiebreaker is required atthe end of the set.

For you to receive better chances for your bet, you could opt for the First Set Winner Accumulator which would give you the opportunity to select multiple players on first set winner.

It is likely that the winner of the first set would be the one who goes on to win the match, however, there is also a possibility that a player warms up slowly, hence increasing their odds. Itis a common occurrence that ranked or seeded players may lose the first set in a match, especially in the early rounds, yet claim the final victory in the end. Therefore, this betting offers more attractive odds than just betting on a favorite player to win the first set. It is important to note that even lower-ranked players competing against seeded players are elite players with high standards. Therefore, there is an equal probability that a lower-ranked player will outperform a high ranked player in the early rounds of a match.

Other factors that may influence the initial performance of seeded players in a match are weather conditions, surface, the difference in time zone, etc. If a top-ranked player has played somewhere else the week before, then they would take some time to adjust to these differences, hence making them vulnerable during the first set. The opponent, on the other hand, could have the advantage of training and getting used to the conditions days before the tournament.

A feeling of complacency could be another problem for a top-ranked player who might be expecting to beat their opponent as they enter the first match, without being in the right frame of mind. The lower-ranked player, on the other hand, would be looking forward to earning a name, a valuable amount of prize money, and a rise in rankings. Such a mindset would encourage them to be mentally and physically strong since the beginning of the game.

First sets, especially in Grand Slam are usually more balanced in terms of points won. This suggests that the possible winner of the match may simply be warming up, while the opponent is giving his best efforts from the start. Eventually, the final result of the first set may be in favor of the latter, but they may not be able to deliver their best in the rest of the sets.
