Top tennis trio on betliveTV

William Hill is serving up a tennis feast this week with no fewer than three top tournaments for you to enjoy. So if you want to marvel over Murray or go nuts for Nadal then make sure you tune in to betliveTV.

The ATP Rotterdam heads the terrific trio of events as Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray make their first appearances since the Australian Open but, with half of the world's top twenty included in the 32 man draw, the great matches will be coming thick and fast.

However, you'd be talking double Dutch if you said all the awesome action is limited to the Netherlands!

With another top ATP tournament in Costa do Sauipe (Brazil, for those of you not familiar with the South American continent) and a star studded field in the WTA Pattaya, an action-packed week on the courts lies ahead.

ATP Rotterdam

The 36th ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament held at the Ahoy Rotterdam has been upgraded to one of only ten ATP-500 events this year, and welcomes a plethora of international stars - but there is no doubting that world number one Rafa Nadal is the man to beat.

The Majorcan maestro produced a master class to smash Roger Federer's spirits two weeks ago in Melbourne and it would take a brave punter to ignore his threat in Rotterdam - he'll be many people's favourite heading into the tournament.

The big question though is how can Andy Murray react after his disappointing exit from the Aussie Open? The hype that surrounded the young Scot ultimately proved too much to handle but now the pressure is off we could easily witness a return to his imperious best, although he'll have to improve on last year's first round exit.

But don't let the names of Murray and Nadal fool you - with the likes of Davydenko, Tsonga, Monfils and Simon all gunning for glory, the winner really could emerge from anywhere. Michael Llodra's victory over Robin Soderling last year surely gives an idea of how open it could be.

ATP Costa do Sauipe

The Brazil Open, as a lesser-ranked ATP-250 event, may not have drawn as many big names as the other tournaments but the stars involved should still guarantee some high quality matches.

The Spain heavy line-up includes defending champion Nicolas Almagro, Tommy Robredo and Albert Montanes, and given that Spain won the Davis Cup based on strength-in-depth you know the tennis will be good.

Almagro starts as a worthy favourite and should be hard to beat on the courts on which he excelled last year but it could be worth keeping an eye on Jose Acasuso who has been in great form at the start of the year.

WTA Pattaya

Our last tournament this week is the PTT Pattaya Women's Open from Thailand. From here we will be streaming all the action from the semi-finals and the final at the weekend.

Australian Open semi-finalist Vera Zvonareva is the top seed. The Russian will be seeking her eighth career singles title and her most likely challenger for the title is Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki.

The young Dane lost to home home favourite Jelena Dokic in Melbourne and will be seeking to make amends for a relatively poor Slam.
