Gamebookers (SBR rating B-)
is again subject of a tennis grading complaint
due to its non-standard policy of grading all tennis Exact Score wagers as losses upon a player's retirement. A bettor placed a wager of £63 on an exact set score of 2-0 on the Zvonareva vs Jankovic Wimbledon WTA singles match. After losing the first set, Jankovic retired. Gamebookers
graded the player's wager as a loss, however none of the full game exact scores are winners. The industry standard for a multi-way wager is that if there is a losing side, someone wins or pushes.
Other sportsbooks, such as Pinnacle Sports (SBR rating A+)
have clearer rules for this scenario: "If a tennis match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all Set wagers will be considered void. Such wagers will be cancelled and the monies refunded."

Following 11 years of offering bonus incentives to players, Pinnacle Sports
has made the decision to discontinue its new player bonus as of November 1st. Pinnacle Sports (SBR rating A+)
released the following message to its player base:
[quote]As a part of our continued effort to differentiate ourselves from our
competitors, we will discontinue the new player deposit bonus effective
23:59 PST on Sunday 1st November 2009. Any new player funding their
account after this date will no longer be entitled to receive a signup
The long term savings that our odds provide far outweigh the short term
allure of any new player incentive. We believe this is the continued
reason for our industry leading player conversion and retention rates
that you now enjoy as a valued affiliate.
Instead of competing in a bonus race, Pinnacle
Sports aims to effectively distinguish itself in the marketplace by
further emphasizing our unique price advantage, with a firm focus on
delivering these outstanding margins in more sports and more markets
than ever before.[/quote]

Bellucci retired midway through the 3rd set with the score at 1 set each. The book's rule states [quote]In the event of a participant withdrawing after the start of a tennis match, the respective bets will be deemed void if at the time of suspension they are still not decided as winning or losing (e.g. First Set and First Set Exacta will be settled if the first set has ended).[/quote] The rule is ambiguous on exact set-scoring with a retirement. Other books have clearer rules on this scenario. From Pinnacle Sports (SBR rating A+)
: "If a tennis match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all Set wagers will be considered void. Such wagers will be cancelled and the monies refunded." Under Gamebookers
' interpretation, the exact-set betting will have many losing bets, but no winning bets with a retirement. The industry standard is that for any multi-way market, such as exact set-scoring, there must be at least one winning bet.
