PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
WTA BUCHAREST (CLAY):
1. 15:00 – Errani v Schmiedlova
These two faced each other in February in Brazil where Errani won in 2 sets after a rather tight first set. While Schmiedlova has definitely played well here, I think Errani beating Nicuelscu yet again proves why the Italian is simply one of the toughest of players to beat on Clay.
A possible 3rd set here but suggesting to go for Errani at the start.
—> Back Errani @1.58, lay @1.25
WTA SWEDEN (CLAY):
2. 13:00 – Larsson v Barthel
Barthel has never lost to Swede Larsson in all 3 previous encounters. In fact, she has never even lost a set.
While there is an arguement that this is their first Clay court meeting, I still feel Barthel plays very well on any surface and above everything, has a solid serve.
Another 3 setter possible but again suggesting to go for the slight favourite.
—> Back Barthel @1.94, lay @1.55
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.
