All times are UK/Irish and are subject to change, and all times are in 24hr format e.g., 01.00 = 1am and 16:00 = 4pm:
PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP CINCINNATI: (HARD)
1. 16:00 – Coric v Zverev
Zverev’s form on hard courts this season has been quite impressive. Also he does possess the better serve than the Croatian Coric. Go for the German here at the start!
—> Back Zverev @1.75, Lay @1.4
2. 17:45 – Tsonga v Verdasco
Better serves and more aggression means Tsonga is the right player to back here at the beginning.
—> Back Tsonga @1.3, Lay @1.14
WTA CINCINNATI: (HARD)
3. 16:00 – Mladenovic v Hantuchova
Mladenovic lost consecutive first round matches in her previous hard court tourneys. To be fair, she had tough opponents in Errani and Stosur. Hantuchova on the other hand struggled against lesser known players like Buykakcay in Turkey.
I feel Mladenovic is the right favourite here and should be backed at the beginning.
—> Back Mladenovic @1.6, Lay @1.25
4. 18:00 – Pavlyuchenkova v Vinci
Again the slower pace of these courts mean the more defensive minded player should be backed at the beginning. In this case, Vinci is that player, who really played amazingly well at the Rogers Cup last week.
—> Back Vinci @1.74, Lay @1.35
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.
