Who we are and how we started
We are James and Nicholas and co-own Tennis Pilot Limited, a tennis tipping service. We met whilst studying at the University of Oxford and have both been betting independently for some time. In early 2016 we began tipping under the alias 'Cappuccino' on Betting Kingdom, a free tipping site we would highly recommend. In May of the same year we started our private service Tennis Pilot Tips and adjusted the Betting Kingdom name to match. Our private service provides the majority of our tips but we still sometimes post free tips on Betting Kingdom.
How we approach tennis betting
We combine a real passion for and understanding of tennis with astute and thorough quantitative research. We use software such as OnCourt and websites such as Tennis Insight to develop models and analyse matches. From player statistics and tournament conditions to past results and betting markets we are constantly enlarging and refining our data sets to maintain an edge over the bookmakers. Alongside data analysis we believe watching a lot of tennis is fundamental to success. We follow the season from start to finish and from the Challenger Tour to the Slams. This ensures we maintain a strong understanding of the players we follow including form, fatigue, motivation, skill, game style and so on.
