PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
FRENCH OPEN DAY 1:
1. 10:00 – Chirico v Makarova –> HOT TIP
The only decent opponent Chirico faced in recent times was Svitolina in April. She lost that match 6-2 6-1. With a tough opponent today like the Russian Makarova, I just don’t think she has a chance here..
—> Back Maka @1.2, lay @1.04
2. 12:00 – Maria v Giorgi
Giorgi has lost all her matches on Clay this season. With Maria improving by time, I feel she has a decent chance here..
—> Lay Giorgi @1.67, back @2
3. 15:30 – Vesnina v Flipkens –> HOT TIP
Vesnina has played a lot more tournaments on Clay this year compared to the Belgian Flipkens. That is going to be a crucial factor in this match and I feel she is rightly priced as a decent favourite.
—> Back Vesnina @1.42, lay @1.15
4. 11:30 – Ramos v Andujar
Pablo Andujar leads 6-2 against his compatriot Ramos. Also his form has been pretty good this year as he was the finalist in Barcelona losing only to Kei Nishikori there.
Suggesting to go for Andujar ..
—> Back Andujar @1.53, lay @1.24
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.
