A major tennis tournament is in full swing and all the best athletes are competing in the Australian Open, with the event entering its second phase. As the less competitive players are filtered out, the top seeds are still in the race and this will translate into better winning opportunities for savvy punters. Betfair makes it easy to win and also makes a tempting proposition for those who want to combine the thrills of tennis events with the adrenaline rush of horse racing.

The latest promotion invites players to place 20 in play tennis bets and receive a free bet in exchange, with the latter to be used on horse racing events. Those who wager on Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, World Hurdle or Gold Cup at Cheltenham will have the stakes refunded if the horse doesn’t participate. Those who have no intention to diversify their activity and want to bet exclusively on tennis, will surely appreciate the proposition made by Paddy Power.

The Money-Back Special promotion continues until the end of the month, with the bookmaker returning losing bets in the form of a free bet. The only requirement is for the chosen player to win the first set but lose a match, something that happens quite often in the latter stages of major tournaments. Furthermore, those who wager on five or more tennis events of at least €5 each will be eligible for a free bet of the same amount.
