The Australian Open is always one of the year’s top tennis tournaments featuring stars from all
over the world. The 2017 tournament was no exception with the final game of the Open being
played just days ago.
Nothing creates a great deal of excitement when relatively unknown underdogs come out
victorious in their matches. This was the case with Novak Djokivic, the defending champ, who
was looking to set a record for achieving a seventh title. However, he ended up being defeated
by Denis Istomin. Another major upset occurred at the Sunday Night Special. This time it was
American Coco Vandeweghe with a defeat to the number one seed, Angie Kerber. Vandeweghe
overwhelmingly won with 6-2 and 6-3 scores.
The 2017 Australian Open was capped off by what many have referred to as a dream match
between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. The match was watched by so many tennis fans
around the globe that it broke viewing records for the evening. With a peek viewership at one
point of 4.4 million in the united States with even more impressive numbers for Europe which
were approximately 16 million. These were the highest ratings in since 2006. The sport itself
thrives from having strong rivalries like Federer and Nadal. In fact, following Federer’s victory,
he urged his opponent to keep playing as the sport needed him.
The Women’s Final was equally as exciting as the men’s when it featured the Williams’ sisters
head to head. Venus and Serena Williams haven’t been matched against one another since
2009 when they opposed one another at Wimbledon. In the end, it was second seed Serena
defeating her older sister. This was Serena’s 23rd Grand Slam singles title, a new record.
It is unexpected events like these that make betting on tennis even more thrilling. Another way
to enjoy tennis themed gambling fun is by enjoying a slot game such as Centre Court at
CasinoOnline.co.nz or any other mobile casinos. With 9 paylines, Centre Court is played at
historic Wimbledon with a maximum payout of $25,000
