PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 12:30 – Lu v Rosol
Lu’s previous match on clay was last year’s French Open. Rosol however, has played in quite a few clay court tourneys already this year and was rather impressive.
Suggesting to back Rosol who is a rather heavy favourite here..
—> Back Rosol @1.2, lay @1.08
2. 16:30 – Jankovic v S.Zheng –> HOT TIP
Zheng has hardly played in any big tournaments this season and isn’t a huge clay courter in my opinion. Jankovic however, is showing some of her best form this season and could end up as one of the dark horses for the upcoming French.
Suggesting to go for Janko..
—> Back Janko @1.25, lay @1.09
3. 12:00 – Vinci v Smitkova
While Vinci has the experience on Clay, I must say Smitkova is improving all the time. Considering she beat a very tricky Mitu in her last match, I am suggesting to lay the favourite here..
—> Lay Vinci @1.61, back @2.3
4. 16:30 – Kerber v Koukalova —> HOT TIP
Kerber leads 4-0 in head to head against the Czech Koukalova. On top of that, her form has been pretty good on Clay as she won the Stuttgart tournament beating a ton of good players like Sharapova, Makarova and Wozniacki. Since this is another home tournament, I am favouring her to do well again…
—> Back Kerber @1.2, lay @1.08
5. 14:30 – Monaco v Querrey
Querrey has never been a great clay courter while Monaco has already played some exceptional Tennis this year on both Clay and Hard. I’m suggesting to go with the Argentinian who holds a 2-0 record on Clay against the American Querrey.
—> Back Monaco @1.49, lay @1.2

Hot Tip – I have more confidence in these tips. However, use normal stake sizes.
Tips are deemed unsuccessful at 40% loss of stake.
All odds shown with the tips are correct at time of publishing. Odds are often given several hours ahead of the event. If odds have changed, adjust your back/lay stake accordingly e.g. if I tip ‘Back at 1.5, Lay at 1.25’ – and back odds move to 1.55, adjust your lay odds to 1.3 – there are still 25 ticks between the back and lay odds.
Delay and Trade!! It’s OK to place your trades before the match starts, but in my opinion, waiting 2/3 games before placing your trades is the safest way to trade. This is advised in many of the articles below. To delay and trade will give you a good feel for the match. Delay and Trade is a MUST if you are Backing Heavy. Delaying is advised mostly for the women’s game, as early breaks of serve are more likely. Please read the relevant article below.
