Betfair Tennis Trading Tips 8th June – French Open Final Day

french open 2014

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:



1. 14:00 – Nadal v Djokovic

Back Nadal@1.87, lay@1.4

Rafa has improved with each round. So to be safe, I’m going to pick Rafa to start better here.

Overall, I do still believe Djokovic can win this match but sticking to Rafa at the start.


2. 11:00 – Errani/Vinci v Peng/Hsieah


I really think Errani and Vinci will be too good against the Asian team.

BH Errani/Vinci@1.55, lay@1.16

Good luck!

Some Terms Explained:

Back: Low Stakes – use 10% of bank.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Lay: Low 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 1.6, adjust your lay odds to 1.35 – 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.

    Errani/Vinci v Peng/Hsieah

    This was my worst trade in my life. I could only match at 1.41 with delaying (starting odds was around 1.36), so the lay bet was @1.02 with the original tick offset. Lowest odds was 1.13 on Errani/Vinci. (So anyone who decided to take the early morning price at 1.55, the trade was a winner for him.)

    Errani/Vinci was very poor and lost the match easily. My Stop Loss didn’t matched at the expected loss, and I could only exit with 50% of the original 30 unit stake. I decided to wait for a come back, but Errani/Vinci made many mistake and lost the second set by 6-1.
    This is a shocking loss to my bank. Conclusion: always take the loss, even if is bigger than the expected 40% loss. TTL tips are good, but one mistake in a month and the bank could be down by 30%.

      Hi Kristof – thanks for the comment and the warning to all about minimising losses. I advise all traders to take losses when necessary. Accept 40% loss which is only 4% of bank if you follow my staking advice and any loss will be a minimal hit to your bank..
