PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 13:00 – Stosur v Stephens
I think this could end up as a tricky match for Stosur as Stephens has played pretty well in 2015.
The first set could fluctuate a bit in my opinion and this can go all the way to a decider.
—> Lay Stosur @1.63, back @2.1
2. 12:30 – Vinci v Kerber
While Vinci has played fine in her recent tournaments, Angelique Kerber has been on fire on Clay throughout this year!
I must agree with these odds and suggest going for the home favourite here..
—> Back Kerber @1.27, lay @1.08
3. 13:30 – Thiem v Isner
Thiem is an exceptional Clay court player and may after all be one of the dark horses this year at the French Open.
While I think Isner’s serves gives him an advantage, I choose to go for the player with more variety in his game.
—> Lay Isner @1.56, back @2
4. 15:15 – Coric v Mayer
No doubt Coric is always improving, but when it comes to clay, you have to give credit to the player with more experience.
Mayer gets my check mark here!
—> Back Mayer @1.53, lay @1.2
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.
