PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP BARCELONA (CLAY):
1. 10:00 – Bellucci v Agut
Agut played pretty well at Monte Carlo, only losing to eventual finalist Berdych. Bellucci on the other hand has lost 4 of his last 5 matches on Clay. By form, Agut is the right favourite and the right bet today.
—> Back Agut @1.35, lay @1.14
2. 15:15 – Cuevas v Carballes Baena —> HOT TIP
This one is a HOT TIP for me as Cuevas is simply a brilliant clay court player who has lost only twice in his previous 10 matches! Also both those losses were against two great players like Nadal and Monaco which went to the deciding set.
More than enough reasons to back him today!
—> Back Cuevas @1.2, lay @1.07
ATP BRD NASTASE OPEN:
3. 11:45 – Bolelli v Golubev
—> Back Bolelli @1.35, lay @1.12
WTA PORSCHE GRAND PRIX:
4. 13:00 – Navarro v Rodina –> HOT TIP
Navarro’s form has been amazing, only losing to Serena at the Miami Open final. If she can continue that sort of aggression, this will be a tournament she can do well in.
—> Back Navarro @1.2, lay @1.07
5. 17:30 – Garcia v Ivanovic
Garcia has already had 2 wins against Ana Ivanovic this season. With Ana not playing any clay court event so far this season, I would suggest to lay her today!
—> Lay Ivanovic @1.51, back @2
Some Terms Explained:
Back: Normal Stakes – use 10% of bank.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Lay: Normal stakes – use 10% of bank.
Lay Heavy(LH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Likely 3 Setter – consider laying the winner of the first set.
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.

Some folks have asked why I call the tips ‘Betfair Tennis Trading Tips’ and have asked if the tips can be used on other betting exchanges. I use Betfair for all my trading because Betfair has the best liquidity. All of my prices are taken from Betfair.
Betfair Tennis Trading gives you the best opportunities to make profits. You can use the trading tips on other exchanges – there may be small price differences – but these shouldn’t matter. If you decide to use a site other that Betfair for trading, make sure that the liquidity is there.
If you’re unsure about what liquidity is required, see question 17 on my FAQ section at http://tennis-trading-league.com/faq/
