Woking, United Kingdom, 2005/09/01 - This weekend Coral.co.uk has world cup qualifying featuring England, Wales and Northern Ireland. US open tennis action involving some of the best tennis players in the world, and also formula one racing in Italy and much more.
World Cup qualifying action is back as England do battle with Wales in their Group 6 tie in Cardiff. England are the favourites and are quoted at 2/5 to do the double over Wales, having beaten them 2-0 at Old Trafford in October last year. Wales are quoted at 6/1, however England will be looking to solidify their position in Group 6 and a win against the Welsh team is vital if England want to remain in control of the group. Other World Cup qualifying action features Northern Ireland vs. Azerbaijan, and Scotland v Italy.
Defending US Open champion Roger Federer has missed the majority of the summer hard court season nursing a minor injury; however, he won the only event in which he competed and is quoted at 1/2 to add the US Open title to his 2005 Wimbledon title. The player who most believe has the best chance to challenge Federer’s supremacy is French Open champion and number 2 seed Rafael Nadal. Spaniard Nadal’s youthful exuberance makes him as strong a challenger as any during the US Open and he is quoted at 5/2. Other players to watch out for are veteran Andre Agassi at 18/1 and world number 14 Thomas Johansson at100/1.
On the women’s side Kim Clijsters has dominated the hard-court season and has looked strong during the past few weeks. Odds of 2/1 may look very generous by this time next week. Another strong contender is Venus Williams, the elder Williams sister who, has never failed to follow up a Wimbledon victory with an US open title and is currently quoted at 9/1. Other players to watch out for are Frenchwoman A. Mauresmo at 14/1 and veteran Mary Pierce at 40/1.
This weekend also features Formula One action from Imola in Italy and the highlight of the cricket domestic season, with Hampshire facing Warwickshire in the C & G Trophy Final. It will be a great weekend of sports betting and coral.co.uk has you covered.
