PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 15:00 – Kukushkin v Johnson
Johnson has really stepped up his performance in the past few months with good victories against players like Dodig and Karlovic. With the insurance of his solid serves, I feel he’s the right player to back here at the start..
—> Back Johnson @1.42, lay @1.18
2. 21:45 – Vesely v Delbonis
Vesely had a decent run at the Auckland Open prior to the Australian Open. Delbonis is more of a clay courter so I’m fancying this to go in favour of Vesely.
—> Back Vesely @1.62, lay @1.3
3. 01:00 – Hewitt v Bellucci
Hewitt hasn’t played a match since Australian Open. Having said that, Bellucci’s form has been abysmal at the moment losing 8 matches in a row. Markets are probably rightly priced here but as one of the best hard courters of the past, I am going to give Hewitt a chance today!
—> Lay Bellucci @1.84, back @2.6
Keep the stakes low or medium here!
4. 16:30 – Strycova v Mladenovic
After a good run at Antwerp, Strycova hasn’t really done much.
However, in general, she has vastly improved as a player in the last year or so. I am going to go with the odds here and suggest to back her against Mladenovic.
—> Back Strycova @1.46, lay @1.18
5. 18:00 – Cornet v Vesnina
I must say I was surprised by the scoreline of Vesnina against Dulgheru yesterday. That wasn’t on the script.
Eventhough Cornet leads 3-1 in head to head and is a very tough hard court player, I feel Vesnina is going to give her a tough match tomorrow so suggesting to lay the favourite..
—> Lay Cornet @1.55, back @2.1
6. 19:30 – Makarova v Knapp —> HOT TIP
Possibly one of the best bets of the day on the Russian Makarova who is one tough player to beat for even some of the very top players. I just can’t see Knapp outplaying her !
—> Back Makarova @1.2, lay @1.06
7. 20:00 – Garcia v Nara
With her decent form at present, I am definitely with the bookies on this market, as I feel Garcia is simply one of the best servers in WTA at the moment and hugely under-rated. She also has enough power to out-play her opponents so expecting her to start better against the Japanese Kurumi Nara.
—> Back Garcia @1.33, lay @1.16

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.
