Tennis official match times

1. Tennis bets on the full match (money line, spread, total) are considered official only once the match is completed without either player withdrawing due to injury, incapacity or disqualification.
2. If a tennis match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all handicap and total games bets will be considered void, regardless of the score of the match. Such wagers will be cancelled and the monies refunded.
3. In the event of a match starting but not being completed, all bets will be void unless (after the start of the match) a player is disqualified, in which case the player/team progressing to the next round or being awarded the victory will be deemed the winner for settlement purposes. This applies to Match Winner betting only.

In the event of any of the following circumstances all bets will stand:

  • A change of surface (either before or during a match)
  • A change from indoor court to outdoor court or vice versa
  • A venue change
  • A change of schedule and/or day of match

Please keep in mind there are certain markets which will have action as soon as the result has been determined, regardless of the match being suspended afterwards. For example a wager on a player to win a specific set will be settled once that set is final.

However this rule does not apply to wagers on the side, total, or spread for the full match. For example if a wager is placed on the total number of games to go over, that wager has action only if the match is fully completed. Should the match be suspended before completion, that bet will be void even if the total has gone over.

NOTE: Bets on Padel will be settled based on all standard Tennis Rules.
