Mastering Tennis Trading Review
The book mastering tennis trading is as the name implies all about trading the tennis markets on betting exchanges.
I don’t trade tennis myself but I always love to read how professional traders approach trading the betting exchanges. This book does a great job of that and has really given me the motivation to take a much deeper look at trading tennis in 2017.
Mastering Tennis Trading is a total of 117 pages long. It starts with a basic introduction to tennis trading and how to setup yourself up when you are trading. General aspects of the betting exchanges are also explained such as price increments, laying, liquidity etc.
After the general introduction different trading strategies and situations are discussed in detail. One recurring theme that I really liked about this book is the use of data to explain why a trade had or might have a positive expectation.
Mastering Tennis Trading covers quite a large number of trading situations with the main topics including
- Pre-match trading
- Projected service holds
- Pre-match lay to back in-play
- Backing favourites when losing
- Laying bad servers
- Pressure situations
- Backing the server
- Tiebreak trading
- In-game trades
- At the end of the first set
- The deciding set
- Dangerous situations
- Psychology risk and bankroll management
So you can see from the above that this book is very thorough and covers pretty much all aspects of trading tennis.

I really enjoyed reading this book and felt that I was getting expert advice from somebody that is trading the tennis markets profitably for a living. Mastering Tennis Trading does an excellent job of explaining the basics of trading tennis and then progresses to show well explained examples of how you can find profitable angles within the tennis markets.
This book gets a clear recommendation from me. It is well written, easy to follow and would add a huge amount of value to anyone that was looking to trade tennis on the exchanges.
It gets a five star rating from me.
