Betfair Tennis Trading Tips: ATP WTA Thursday 9th 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. 11:00 – Bedene v De Greef —> HOT TIP

Bedene knocked out a very experienced clay court specialist, Maximo Gonzalez in his previous match. I feel he is the right favourite here against an inexperienced De Greef.

—> Back Bedene @1.17, lay @1.05


2. 15:00 – Kulichkova v Kanepi

Watch out for Kulichkova in the coming years as this girl looks like she means business.
Not only did she beat a very decent home favourite, Ursula Radwanska, in the last round, she absolutely hammered her with a 6-0 6-1 score which is really unbelievable considering Ursula is not a bad player by any means!!

I am going to suggest to lay Kanepi here as we may see an upset here!

—> Lay Kanepi @1.56, back @2


3. 18:00 – Sock v Agut —> HOT TIP

Sock got the better of Agut at Indian Wells which was a hard court. This time though, I feel he is going to have a tougher match on clay against his opponent.

Definitely back Agut here..

—> Back Agut @1.65, lay @1.3

4. 21:15 – Giraldo v Tipsarevic

Bookies have priced Giraldo as a heavy favourite here. While that maybe due to Tipsarevic coming after his career threatening injury, I can’t accept this price fully, as not only did he play well against a clay courter like Clezar in his last match, he was also quite exceptional against Bryan Brothers in the doubles match partnering Petzschner.

I am going to suggest laying Giraldo here but definitely keep the stakes low..

—> Lay Giraldo @1.38, back @1.65

5. 01:45 – Isner v Gabashvili —> HOT TIP

John Isner is one of the favourites of this tournament and a really good clay courter. I just can’t see him losing against Gabashvili tomorrow as his form is pretty good at the moment.

—> Back Isner @1.38, lay @1.12


6. 16:00 – Kerber v Arruabarrena

Arrua had a tough match against Stosur but came through with flying colours. I really feel Kerber can get knocked out tomorrow if she doesn’t serve well.

Suggesting to lay the favourite here.

—> Lay Kerber @1.5, back @1.85

7. 16:00 – Hradecka v Garcia –> HOT TIP

I am with the bookies here as I feel this market is rightly priced.

Suggesting to go for Garcia who is playing some of her best tennis this year and may be a great bet for the upcoming Women’s French Open!

—> Back Garcia @1.63, lay @1.25

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.
