Tennis Genie Review

Tennis Genie review

My trial of the Tennis Genie tipping service has come to a bitter end with my bank about to bust.

Another heavy loss has taken my overall loss up to -£813.00 to £10 stakes. As I am very close to busting my betting bank for this review, I am hanging my racquet up and calling it a day.

One of the main problems with this service was the aggressive staking plan. Stakes were advised between 1 and 10 pts and there were three occasions where the 10 pt bets lost.

This had a devestating effect on the bank that made it difficult to recover from.

Note: There is a gap in my results at the beginning of June due to the service switching from posting tips to Twitter to email. I missed the memo on this, so I extended my trial to cover the missed dates.


I won't be recommending Tennis Genie, but I won't be giving up on finding profitable tennis tipsters. Fingers crossed I have more success next time!

Update Two: 29th May 2019

There has been a vast improvement in results in month two of my trial for Tennis Genie.

Although there were only 13 bets, I finished with a profit of £202.40 at £10 per pt.

However, there is still a way to go to make up for the heavy loss in the first month as my bank is still down by 36.1%.

At any rate, it's good to see that the service has made some headway towards a recovery as a further loss could have seen my trial coming to a swift end.

I am hoping for another winning month that will hopefully put me into a profitable position.

I will be back next month with an update, but in the meantime click here to find out more about Tennis Genie.

Update One: 25th April 2019

Over the past month, I have been picking up where Lucy left off with her review of Tennis Genie.

A couple of things have altered since she wrote her introduction in 2017. The tips are now accessed via a private Twitter account and the membership fees are a lot more reasonable.

VIP membership now costs just £14.99 per month, rather than the £99.99 per month that it used to be! This gives you 15-20 each month, or there is an "Investor" membership which gives you 45-50 tips each month at £49.99 per month. There's also a basic membership which is free and gives you 5-10 tips each month.

I am tracking results for the VIP membership and so far there have been 21 tips. Sadly it has been a really poor month and I have lost 56.4 pts already. The tips come with an advised stake which ranges between 1 - 10 pts so losses can quickly build up.

I couldn't find any information on what size betting bank to use for this service, so I decided 100 pts / £1,000 would be a sensible amount.

Given that I have lost more than half of my bank in one month, 100 pts obviously isn't enough.

I will carry on tracking results and hopefully there will be an improvement over the next month. I'll be back with an update in May, but in the meantime find out more about Tennis Genie here.

Introduction: 18th May 2017

It is a constant source of frustration to me that I have never found a tennis tipster service that I am happy with.

However, with spring now upon us (though you wouldn't really believe it if you could see the rain pouring down outside my window!), and Wimbledon around the corner, I couldn't help having another look for a product that specialises in the sport.

And I'm pleased to report that I've come across a very promising service..

Welcome then to my new trial of... Tennis Genie!

Tennis Genie is positioned as a serious-minded, investment-oriented service.

And it's certainly not reticent about making bold claims.

The website states, in capital letters, "THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS SERVICE IS TO DELIVER A FULL TIME INCOME".


Now, of course, this might seem like standard tipster hubris -- after all, who hasn't seen wild claims made about betting systems dozens of times? -- but it continues:

"As a direct result of [bookies closing accounts], most profitable punters head over to the exchanges where there are no such restrictions. As former employees at such a site we’ve seen how many individuals managed to consistently achieve profit each and every month. In fact two of the founding members here at TennisGenie have been generating an income through tennis betting since 2010."

OK - so now I'm interested!

And it all looks very professional...

Instead of having to wait around for a daily tips email for instance, your receive access to a members-only dashboard containing fully detailed selections in a detailed format:

And the claimed historic results look pretty appealing too (though note that I'm unable to verify them independently):

I only ever kick off a trial if I am genuinely excited about a product. If I wasn't, I couldn't bring myself to sustain the effort required to test it.

However, it is also undoubtedly the case that some services are more appealing than others. And Tennis Genie is one of the most exciting products I've seen this year. It just looks so slick and well put together.

I'm also impressed with the experience that the tipsters involved can point to.

So maybe... just maybe... I'm on to something with this one. And to think.. Wimbledon is just a month away!

I'll be back with my first report before matters get underway in SW19. So wish me luck!

  1. Although I surely won’t make friends with my comment, I’ll say this: I’m not impressed. I can not trust a website which claims certain results which are unproven by any third-party. The domain has been registered in September 2016. I also couldn’t find anything in the Wayback machine. Be careful with this service.

  2. Hi Gerry,

    Yes, point taken. But you have to consider that many bets will be on matches not featuring any particularly big guns, and in fact may be placed on smaller markets (not on the matchwinner market).

    If you look at the result spreadsheet at the Tennis Genie site, the most recent picks are Gastao Elias, Hyeon Chung, Dustin Brown, Frederico Ferreira Silva, and Aljaz Bedene (their opponents are not mentioned). And a significant amount of the bets seem to be different kinds of Set Betting or Handicaps and such – not so sure about the liquidity there!

    However, what I found most surprising (or should I say revealing) about the results spreadsheet, is that most bets are NOT placed on Betfair (or any other exchange), but at the bookies! Yes, maybe about 90% (quick, rough estimate) of all the bets seem in fact to be placed/advised with bookies, not exchanges!

    With all the remarks about bookies closing accounts and most profitable punters heading over to the exchanges, I fully expected this service to be an Exchange-only (or at least mainly) one. The fact that this is not the case at all is enough to destroy any interest I may have had in joining, (UNLESS of course, they turn out to be quite profitable at the exchange too, but that certainly does not follow from the results spreadsheet.)

    Also, from their 2017 results spreadsheet, the *average* stake is well over £200, quite huge I would say. Any member would have to be prepared to maybe lose about £1,000 (or more) on a very bad day. (Yes, sometimes even £1,000 on a single bet.) Which does put things in perspective, I’d say.


    1. Hi Karel,

      Yes you make some good points there. Bookies is no good for this, your account wouldn’t last that long.
      Also if you have the know how, you can get yourself out of trouble or reduce the losses much better on Betfair.

      I certainly wouldn’t be interested in this, those subscriptions, one bad month and your way out of pocket.

      All the best,

  3. Or they simply want to protect market prices? Because with more than (say) 50 people backing the same player in a single match for considerable amounts (as suggested by their stated goal of providing a real income) , I’d suppose they may well lose the bigger part of their (initial) edge. Every bet placed influences market prices to the disadvantage of the person placing the bet, that’s how markets work, even if the extent of the effect does of course depend on the amount of money in the market relative to the stake size of the bet.

    Hi Lucy, haven’t posted in a long time, but I’m still reading.


    1. Hi Karel,

      I’ve done the odd trade and straight bet on a few games, when you get the big guns like Murray, Nadel, Federer and the others, just look at the liquidity. It runs into the millions and that’s just Betfair.

      Now I belong a syndicate with over 200 members, we’ve placed bets on these games virtually all together at once, and the odds haven’t even budged. With that kind of liquidity, the number of bets don’t effect them hardly at all.
      Of course it was a horse in a race then yes, but not in such big games as above.

      So capping membership to 50, well everyone can make their own mind up about that!

  4. Hi Lucy,
    Good luck with this, there is one thing that concerns me, if they are as good as they say they are and the reults are true after the number of years they have been going.

    It states on their website, “membership is limited to 50” for me that rings alarm bells. Any service that good, it would be full….just my opinion, sorry to rain on your parade….. 🙂

    1. Not necessarily. In my experience of running this site for six years, I know that a lot of folks are, understandably, unprepared to pay that kind of price for any tipster service.

      Indeed, the membership cap might explain the premium pricing as it’s easier to set a high figure if you’re only trying to recruit a few members.
