PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP ERSTE BANK:
1. 11:30 – Rosol v Troicki
A tricky one to call here as Rosol did play very well yesterday. I feel the better server is likely to win here. Laying Triocki is definitely the better choice at the start..
Lay Troicki @1.72, back @2.24
2. 12:00 – Becker v Haase
I didn’t think Haase’ form was good enough to knock out Thiem in the previous round. He probably is the right favourite here as priced by the bookies.
Back Haase @1.84, lay @1.3
3. 14:15 – Struff v Stakhovsky –> HOT TIP
Struff’s form has been really excellent as he beat some really good hard court players in the recent tournament at Metz. He’s got the serve and definitely got the power to make it a tough match for Stakhovsky.
Back Struff @1.68, lay @1.3
4. 10:00 – Kukushkin v Fognini –> HOT TIP
Recent form of Kukushkin is pretty consistent. I thought he played exceptionally against Djokovic in Shanghai. If he can continue that sort of rhythm, this could be a 2 set win against the Italian.
Back Kuku @1.57, lay @1.19
5. 11:30 – Robredo v Krajinovic –> HOT TIP
Robredo is by far the more experienced off these two. This could be easy money in my opinion as I think the odds are a bit high on the Spaniard.
Back Robredo @1.39, lay @1.15
6. 10:00 – Krunic v Pironkova
Both have played well recently but Krunic has looked pretty solid in all departments carrying on with her form from the US open. Definitely worth laying Pironkova here.
Lay Pironkova @1.66, back @2.3
7. 11:45 – Siniakova v Mladenovic
Siniakova knocking out the home favourite Vesnina was a bit of a shock. Fancying her here as she has a variety of shots in her arsenal that will trouble Mladenovic.
Back Sini @1.85, lay @1.45
8. 12:30 – Barthel v Bertens
I’m opting for Bertens who was very aggressive against Cornet. Barthel, on the contrary, could have been knocked out in 2 sets after a terrible first set performance against Niculescu.
Lay Barthel @1.55, back @1.9
9. 16:00 – Larsson v Strycova
I don’t agree with the price here again. Larsson deserves a lot of credit for her recent performances. Choosing to lay Strycova!
Lay Strycova @1.53, back @2.1
10. 12:45 – Bachinger v Mayer
Can’t see one of the stars of ATP at the moment, losing here. Definitely go for Mayer.
Back Mayer @1.38, lay @1.1
11. 19:15 – Dolgopolov v Mannarino
Dolgo’s form has been very poor and hence shouldn’t be the favourite here. Mannarino has played consistently well on hard courts. I choose to go for the Frenchman here..
Lay Dolgo @1.8, back @2.4
