Tennis betting rules

The bookies have different retirement rules on certain sports, where tennis matches are the most common sport to have different rules on. There are four different tennis rules on the market today, and they can be categorized as follows.

For the bet to stand, only one serve is required in the match. That means that if a player retires (due to an injury for example) at any time after the first serve, the bet stands with the bookies that have this rule on tennis.
For the bet to stand, at least one set needs to be completed in the match. That means that if a player retires after one set has been completed, the bet stands. However, if a player retires before one set has been completed, the bet is void (cancelled) and you will get your stake back.

For the bet to stand, at least two sets needs to be completed in the match. That means that if a player retires after two sets have been completed, the bet stands. However, if a player retires before two sets have been completed, the bet is void (cancelled) and you will get your stake back.

The entire match has to be completed in order for the bet to stand. A player can’t retire without the bet being void.
