Tennis is a sport usually played between two players (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a racket that is strung to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over a net into the opponent's court. The modern game of tennis originated in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century as "lawn tennis" which has close connections to various field/lawn games as well as to the ancient game of real tennis. Until then, "tennis" referred to the latter sport: for example, in Disraeli's novel Sybil (1845), Lord Eugene De Vere announces that he will "go down to Hampton Court and play tennis. As it is the Derby [classic horse race], nobody will be there". After its creation, lawn tennis spread throughout the upper-class English-speaking population before spreading around the world. Tennis is an Olympic sport and is played at all levels of society at all ages. The sport can be played by anyone who can hold a racket, including people in wheelchairs.

The triumph of Stanislas Wawrinka in the 2014 Australian Open was the main highlight of the year for many tennis fans (and we actually suggested him as a wild bet before the start of the tournament last year), so it's hardly surprising that everyone is already looking forward to his performances in this year's edition of the event. William Hill are offering 17.00 for him to successfully defend his title and those odds will surely look juicy to many punters. Before you jump onto that train, however, read through our list of reasons why the Swiss number two won't be able to repeat his last year's success.
The third Grand Slam of the season starts next week and the draw is apparently going to take place on Friday, so let's take a look at what bets might be taken even before that happens. Most punters believe that there is virtually no point in betting before the draw is released, but that isn't necessarily true in our opinion. So, who might do well and who's likely to flop on grass this year?
