Betfair Tennis Trading Tips ATP WTA: Tuesday 19th May

These Trading 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!! 

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. 12:30 – Lu v Rosol

Lu’s previous match on clay was last year’s French Open. Rosol however, has played in quite a few clay court tourneys already this year and was rather impressive.

Suggesting to back Rosol who is a rather heavy favourite here..

—> Back Rosol @1.2, lay @1.08


2. 16:30 – Jankovic v S.Zheng –> HOT TIP

Zheng has hardly played in any big tournaments this season and isn’t a huge clay courter in my opinion. Jankovic however, is showing some of her best form this season and could end up as one of the dark horses for the upcoming French.

Suggesting to go for Janko..

—> Back Janko @1.25, lay @1.09


3. 12:00 – Vinci v Smitkova

While Vinci has the experience on Clay, I must say Smitkova is improving all the time. Considering she beat a very tricky Mitu in her last match, I am suggesting to lay the favourite here..

—> Lay Vinci @1.61, back @2.3

4. 16:30 – Kerber v Koukalova —> HOT TIP

Kerber leads 4-0 in head to head against the Czech Koukalova. On top of that, her form has been pretty good on Clay as she won the Stuttgart tournament beating a ton of good players like Sharapova, Makarova and Wozniacki. Since this is another home tournament, I am favouring her to do well again…

—> Back Kerber @1.2, lay @1.08


5. 14:30 – Monaco v Querrey

Querrey has never been a great clay courter while Monaco has already played some exceptional Tennis this year on both Clay and Hard. I’m suggesting to go with the Argentinian who holds a 2-0 record on Clay against the American Querrey.

—> Back Monaco @1.49, lay @1.2

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.

Some folks have asked why I call the tips ‘Betfair Tennis Trading Tips’ and have asked if the tips can be used on other betting exchanges. I use Betfair for all my trading because Betfair has the best liquidity. All of my prices are taken from Betfair.
Betfair Tennis Trading gives you the best opportunities to make profits. You can use the trading tips on other exchanges – there may be small price differences – but these shouldn’t matter. If you decide to use a site other that Betfair for trading, make sure that the liquidity is there.
If you’re unsure about what liquidity is required, see question 17 on my FAQ section at
