ROME OPEN (CLAY):
1. 19:00 – Wawrinka v Federer —> HOT TIP
Stan Wawrinka caused a major upset giving Nadal his 5th loss on Clay this season. The Swiss moves on to face his compatriot Roger Federer who has really impressed me throughout this tournament and is yet to lose a set.
Suggesting to back Federer today..
—> Back Federer @1.66, lay @1.3
2. 11:00 – Suarez Navarro v Halep –> HOT TIP
Halep’s performance on Clay this season hasn’t been too good, losing to Wozniacki in the 3rd round at Stuttgart and to Cornet in the 1st round at Madrid. However, she is yet to lose a set here at Rome and has blown away every single opponent!
I really feel Navarro might find this a very tricky encounter!
—> Back Halep @1.36, lay @1.16
3. 15:30 – Sharapova v Gavrilova
I felt Azarenka was going to be a good challenge for Sharapova but the Russian played some awesome Tennis throughout the match and dismissed off her opponent in 2 easy sets. The next challenge comes from compatriot Gavrilova who already upset her in Miami. I just don’t think that story is going to repeat today as Maria’s game works best on Clay and since her form is good, there could be a sweet revenge on display here..
—> Back Sharapova @1.17, lay @1.09
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.
