Betfair Tennis Trading Tips: ATP WTA Sunday 12th April

270x270 (1)These tips are published when all have been played – in order to get today’s tips, join by clicking here and I’ll mail them to you!! To see stats and results, please click on the ‘TRADING STATS’ link above. 

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 – Gimeno-Traver v Klizan –> LAY HEAVY : TRADE OF THE DAY!!

This is one of the best matches to trade today!

Gimeno-Traver’s consistency has been really superb and beating Vesely on clay was not easy!

Klizan got lucky against Brown and also against Dzumhur, but did play well against Almagro, which could be the reason he is priced as favourite.

However, I am disagreeing with the bookies here and suggesting to lay Klizan as I feel Gimeno will be his toughest challenge yet!

—> LAY HEAVY @Klizan @1.66, back @2.4


2. 15:00 – Giorgi v Schmiedlova

I must say I didn’t see Radwanska not being in the final here. Giorgi indeed shocked the home crowd by knocking her out!

However, I am choosing to lay Giorgi here, as from a technical point of view, Schmiedlova comes out on top for me, especially on serves. Giorgi can be a bit of a hit and miss, so opting for the underdog who has, in fact, played much better than most pundits would have predicted and blew away a very consistent Van Uytvanck yesterday.

This could go all the way but I feel Schmiedlova is playing the right game at the moment both offensively and defensively!

—> Lay Giorgi @1.44, back @1.9


3. 18:00 – Keys v Kerber

Amazingly, Keys has dismissed every challenge so far while Kerber had to do far more work in her matches.

In general, the serves are really holding for Keys at Charleston and if these stats continue, Kerber could have a mountain to climb tomorrow as breaking the young American will be a problem.

I suggest to go for the favourite hence..

—> Back Keys @1.57, lay @1.25


4. 20:00 – Querrey v Sock

Querrey knocked out Verdasco to reach the final in a tight match while Sock blew away Anderson in what was such a one-sided match!

Overall, Sock has been much more impressive throughout this tournament as he beat Bautista Agut, Giraldo and Anderson, all in 2 sets which no one would have predicted.

I must go for the stats that are in favour of the younger American, Jack Sock!

—> Lay Querrey @1.9, back @2.7

Good luck!

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.
