Have you ever placed a bet on a tennis match only to have one of the players retire midway through the game? It can be frustrating and confusing, but don’t worry, we’re here to help clarify the rules when a player retires in a tennis match.

What happens to my bet when a player retires?

When a player retires due to injury or any other reason, most betting sites have clear rules in place. Typically, if the match is not completed due to a player retirement, your bet will be voided, and your stake will be returned to you.

What if one set has been completed?

If one set has been completed before the retirement, some betting sites may consider the match completed, and the result of that set will stand. However, this can vary from one site to another, so it’s essential to check the specific rules of the bookmaker you’re using.

Is there anything I can do to prevent losses from player retirements?

While player retirements are unpredictable, one way to minimize your risk is to consider live betting or placing bets closer to the match when you have more information about the players’ conditions. Additionally, researching the injury history of players can give you insight into their potential to retire during a match.
