Wednesday ATP Betting Preview: Welcome to Grass Season

With Rafa Nadal hoisting his 11th Coupe des Mousquetaires last weekend, we close the chapter on the clay season — and now look ahead to the greener pastures of grass court tennis.

The grass season is short and sweet at just under two months — and presents us with a different test as tennis handicappers. Because the ball stays low (after bouncing off the grass), lawn tennis is widely considered the fastest surface. It’s defined by quick points (think Federer at Wimbledon) and an uptick in aces. For these reasons, offensive-minded players — and big servers — generally enjoy the quicker conditions.

We have two grass tournaments this week in Stuttgart and Den Bosch (s’-Hertogenbosch), with the Maestro — Roger Federer — returning from his clay-court layoff to play the former. Action gets underway Wednesday at 5 a.m. ET.

Let’s see what’s out there for us.
