As news broke today of a set-back in Andy Murray's recovery from his hip injury it got me thinking about life after he retires. It has been a tough year having no Murray matches to follow given how consitently he had made the latter stages of pretty much all tennis tournaments over the past decade. Murray's dogged style of never giving up but also taking his eye off the ball when ahead meant that for many of us Betfair Tennis traders he was a goldmine.
Betfair trading has been established for many many years now and continues to thrive. Traders like myself, Ryan and Adam have thrived from the markets for years, some like Richard Futter have been making a good living from them for around a decade and a half!
So why is it that the good to great traders are able to keep making money trading sports on Betfair? Why do so many others struggle to do so?
