In case you missed it Sparking Water, trained by Mark De Kock, has won the 2022 Hollywoodbets Durban July in a spectacular way.

As part of the betting news update here are some highlights of this year’s Wimbledon tournament:

  • After 3 hours and 10 minutes Harmony Tan has beaten Serena Williams in an epic 1st round Centre Court match. While the seven-time Wimbledon champion Williams didn’t compete for nearly one year due to injuries, it was nevertheless not to be expected that Tan, ranking 115th, would send her home so early.
  • 3 out of the last 4 women semi-finalists are into the last four of a major for the first time. The odd one out is 2019 Wimbledon champion Simona Halep. She will face E. Rybakina on 7th July while O. Jabeur is playing T. Maria in the second semi. Chances are 2 outsiders might reach the Women’s final on Saturday 9 July.
  • American John Isner breaks the record for the most aces on the ATP Tour. In his first round opening game he served 54 aces alone. While he lost his 3rd round match against Italian Jannik Sinner he hit the five aces he need to break the existing record and now leads with 13,729. Isner definitely has a strong serve!
  • In the Men’s Singles a lot of favourites are already out. Hubert Hurkacz lost on day 1 against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. The same goes for Canadian Felix Auger-Alliasssime as well as Andy Murray. Moreover some players had to withdraw due to Covid, including Matteo Berrettini and Martin Cilic. This has improved the odds for Rafael Nadal as well as Novak Djokovic big time and both made it to the semi-finals. Djokovic will face Norrie on Friday 8th July while Nadal meets Kyrgious. Unfortunately Nadal suffers an abdominal injury so it will be seen if he is fit for Friday’s match.
