After Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal at the Madrid Open, one of the most enduring rivalries in sports has seen a boost. Tennis spread bettors will have something to consider in the lead up to the French Open. Most, including Sporting Index's traders, will have been surprised by Rafa's defeat, although buyers of his outright index spread for Roland Garros will not feel too worried. That loss was only the Spaniard's fifth on clay in 155 matches since 2005. The victory of Federer and the confidence he will bring to France will be a big draw for buyers of Federer’s tournament index.<br/><br/><img width="492" src="" /><br/>The irrepressible Nadal has not lost a single match at Roland Garros since 2004, having beaten his arch rival Roger Federer in the last three finals. Spread betting is not allowed in Madrid if the result in Madrid does not favor the top two world players. If that happens, punters might look elsewhere. Spread betting interest in Andy Murray, who recently rose to the number three spot in the rankings, will be high. Sellers of his spread will however remind us of his surprise quarter-final defeat in Madrid and a disappointing third-round exit at Roland Garros last year.<br/><br/>The beauty of spread betting means punters do not have to call an outright result, but can bet on a number of aspects of a given match including total game supremacy. Looking to previous finals, in the Rafa era (2005 onwards), three of the four finals were won in four sets, with last year's victory achieved in straight sets. The average number of games in finals in this period is 34.25, although spread sellers will be encouraged by last year's one-sided match - Federer only managed to claim four games in the whole match, and it took just 22 games for Rafa to earn his fourth title. Buyers or sellers of the games supremacy spread for the men's final will note that Nadal's supremacy over Fed in 2008 was an emphatic 14 games. In 2007, he won six more games than Federer, and only three in 2006.<br/><br/>After Justine Henin's domination of the French Open ladies' competition in the naughties, it is refreshing to see that any number of women could be seriously considered for the 2009 title. Dinara Safina, last year's runner up in the WTA rankings has since moved to the top and spread buyers will be hopeful that she can do better this year. Spread sellers will also be pleased to note that the Williams sisters have both had a good year. However, they will not forget that neither of them has reached Roland Garros final since seven years ago. <a href="">link alternatif Dewabet</a> Game supremacy spread bettors should be aware that the average supremacy in the women's final over the last five years is 7.4 and the highest spread make-up in that period is a hefty 10 games, when Henin destroyed crowd favourite Mary Pierce in 2005.<br/>
