PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 19:30 – Murray v Kohlschreiber –> HOT TIP
Since losing to Coric in Dubai, Andy has looked back in form.
Overall, I agree with the price here as Andy deserves to be a huge favourite.
—> Back Andy @1.16, lay @1.05
2. 21:30 – Isner v Anderson
Head to head stat indicate a 7-3 lead to the American Isner here.
Since both players are reliant on their serves, I prefer picking the better server who is definitely Isner. Odds of 1.9 looks a bit high considering John has won his last 3 matches against the South African.
—> Back Isner @1.9, lay @1.5
3. 22:45 – Tomic v Ferrer –> HOT TIP
Since losing to Nishikori at the Australian Open, Ferrer has been on fire, winning back to back tournaments at Rio de Janeiro (clay) and Acapulco (hard).
Including his win over Dodig in Indian Wells, that would make his winning streak to 11.
Another important stat, the Spaniard won at Doha (hard) as well, beating Berdych in the Final, earlier this year.
Everything points to David doing well here!
—> Back Ferrer @1.36, lay @1.14
4. 18:00 – Bouchard v Vandeweghe
This one has the potential to go to a 3rd set as Vandeweghe isn’t a bad player by any means. However, through her experience and consistency, regardless of the surface or conditions, Eugenie should get the check marks here. I favour the Canadian to do better..
—> Back Bouchard @1.3, lay @1.07
5. 18:00 – Cornet v Tsurenko –> HOT TIP
The Ukranian has really stepped up her serves recently and look like a decent threat for some top seeds in this tourney.
Cornet’s inconsistency is always visible through her serves as the match progresses.
Considering Alize has never faced Tsurenko before, I feel this one has a good money making potential so choosing to lay the French girl.
—> Lay Cornet @1.8, back @2.65
6. 23:15 – Ivanovic v Garcia
Normally I would go for Ivanovic here as she’s one of the best hard court players out there when she’s on fire. But Garcia gave me more than a good impression in their latest encounter at Monterrey, Mexico.
I am therefore choosing to lay the Serbian here as this may not be as easy for Ana as the bookies make out.
—> Lay Ivanovic @1.39, back @1.8
7. 00:45 – Pennetta v Stosur
Amazing that with all her serves and show of power, Sam Stosur has never beaten the Italian before. Pennetta leads her by a huge 7-0 margin in fact!
Considering the Italian’s form has been pretty decent, beating players like Goerges and Kerber in Dubai, I am favouring Flavia today.
—> Back Pennetta @1.8, lay @1.4
Some Terms Explained:

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.
