    Well usually tourneys are from mon till sun. Now the season is going towards the end, most players are on vacations, making plans for next season, recovering etc.
    There are still some itfs, challengers and the 2 final tournaments, next gen and london, davis cup.

    Once the season starts again, usually you have most matches in 1st and 2nd round of the tourneys (mon, tue, wed..).
    Fri, sat, sun you have less matches because tourneys are ending but you have seen the remainging players in action at least 2-3 times that week and can better guess their state, form, motivation etc.

    Then again on fri/sat qualies for the next tourney begin (if your are betting qualies).

    There aren't any leagues like soccer. It's just tournaments all run by the same two organisations

    Check out the ATP/WTA Live Score app. It has tournament calendar and schedule for each tournament (once it comes out, just prior to tournament starting and throughout the active tournament).

    You have to familiarize yourself with individual players: how talented they are, how consistent they are, how healthy they are, how shady they are, how sane they are (Benoit Paire) and when they're going on a run (putting the effort in).

    A few guys - like Kevin Anderson - go hard all year, most guys are out of shape or injured for half the year. I had some luck with Pouille in 2017, but he took this year off. Guys like Zverev are elite talents, but offer sh1tty odds when you consider how frequently they flame out. Kyrgios doesn't give a fug. Better to focus on lower ranked players who can't afford to coast.

    WTA is high risk/low reward. Fragile bodies, and prone to choking. A bit worse than betting on NBA (1.30/3.00).

    It's easy to get burnt in 250 tournaments, but I found that even the slams - Wimbledon especially - were a sh1t show this year. More luck with challenger work horses, better odds too.

    As far as sure things go, this year Fed fell off and Djokovic returned. Nadal's body is about to implode. Good value 2019 futures: Djokovic: Australian @ 2.37, Wimbledon @ 3.50. Some younger talents level-up every year, need to reevaluate.

    I find tennis is best for parlaying with NHL and NFL handicaps.

    Very difficult sport to bet on, very often you see a guy favorite despite ranked lower than his opponent. Things to consider:
    - surface on which the match is played,
    - even on a particular surface, the conditions can vary a lot from one tournament to another (examples: Miami and Shanghai on hard court, or Madrid and the French Open on clay),
    - the category of tournaments: on the main tour there are 250 points tournaments, 500 points, 1000 points (Masters) and 2000 points (slams) + 1500 points (ATP finals). The motivation can not be the same for all events,
    - fatigue: some players (most players actually) have a hard time physically in back to back tournaments, if they go deep in the first tournament it will be hard for them the following week. A good example is Richard Gasquet, when he reaches the final in week 1, bet against him in week 2, he will lose early.
    I would recommend to bet on Betfair Exchange if you can, and lay short odds, especially inplay.

    thank you, I really just work numbers I dont care about players or the actual game, I just do the math, I am building a comparative model to try and establish a fair line for a match. Seems fairly straightforward except for some rest adjustments I am not really sure of yet.

    As a matter of interest, what are the main factors you're concerned with?

    I think all ATP tournaments have a lot of activity, even the 250s where there's nobody in the stands. They're pretty much playing for the punters. Less than soccer, of course.

    It's not something I usually pay attention to. If you get an account at a place like Pinnacle, they tell you the max bet on the slip for each match. This should at least give you a rough indication of the interest in various matches and tournaments (I think).

    hey, thanks a ton, I will watch the ATP schedule. I have been watching pretty close and I bet ON dominic Thiem today at +168 and it closed at +156 so that is sort of promising but really I need a bit more gap to cover the large tennis margin!
