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
ROME OPEN (CLAY):
1. 11:00 – F.Lopez v Kyrgios
I agree with the prices here as Kyrgios deserve to be a decent favourite. Simply putting, he has had an incredible Clay court season already beating a few decent players at Estoril and knocking out Roger Federer at Madrid.
—> Back Kyrgios @1.56, lay @1.25
2. 11:30 – Kohlschreiber v Young –> HOT TIP
Nothing in Young’s form suggests that he is going to outperform the German Kohlschreiber on Clay today. Definitely fancying Kohli to wrap this up quickly!
—> Back Kohli @1.2, lay @1.06
3. 11:45 – Isner v Sousa
Isner’s form on clay has been sublime, losing only to Nadal at Montreal in 3 sets and to Berdych at Madrid, again in 3 sets. I just don’t think Sousa has the weapons to beat the big serving American today.
—> Back Isner @1.35, lay @1.18
4. 11:30 – Knapp v Schiavone
Schiavone’s form is really poor losing all 5 of her previous matches. Knapp on the contrary, played pretty good tennis at Morocco beating players like Vinci and taking Svitolina to a decider.
I am siding with the favourite here..
—> Back Knapp @1.63, lay @1.3
5. 12:45 – Hantuchova v Errani –> HOT TIP
This is Errani’s home tournament and she is bound to do well especially against Hantuchova, who lost 4 of her previous 5 matches!
Can’t really go against the Italian today..
—> Back Errani @1.24, lay @1.1
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.
