The 2021 season has ended and we’re only weeks away from the 2022 campaign, so, as ever, it’s time to take a look back at the year just gone and offer the opportunity to buy my fully updated ATP guide.
Firstly, on a positive note, I was pleased that the daily bets (this year for Ace Previews) once again came out in profit. That’s the fourth time in the last five seasons that we’ve been in profit with those and given some of the peculiar results in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, I’m happy with that.
On the outright front it’s hard to describe a year in which Nikoloz Basilashvili provided me with 500-1 and 60-1 winners as a bad one, but neither were official published bets, so they don’t count towards the profit and loss.
The published outrights continue to lose in semi finals (mainly) and finals, as is illustrated in the image below and when they’re not doing that they’re losing early and then winning a few weeks later, as Tommy Paul did most recently in Stockholm.
That can’t possibly continue and hopefully 2022 will see our luck turn in those: there are certainly plenty of opportunities in the 250s and 500s with some of the crazy prices that regularly get posted by certain layers.
Ahead of the new season, I’ve updated my ATP guide and added a section where you can see the service hold/break stats of the world’s top-50 players from 2020 and 2021 and their main level careers to date.
So, as well as an updated guide to the 60 tournaments on the tour there’s some player info as well, as you can see in the following screenshots:
The guide is now available to purchase for the same price as last year (£30.00) and for that you will be emailed a PDF and an Excel copy. Get it by clicking the PayPal button below.
