Betfair Tennis Trading Tips ATP/WTA Friday 18th October

All times are UK/Irish and are subject to change:


1. 13:15 – Fognini v Haase

Going for Fognini again today!

Back Fognini@1.72, lay@1.4


2. 13:00 – Ferrer v Verdasco

Lay Ferrer@1.7, back@2.1

Consider a 3rd set no matter who wins the first!

3. 17:30 – Paire v Raonic

I feel this could be free money!

Back Raonic@1.3, lay@1.14


4. 11:30 – Kukushkin v Golubev

Golubev may be the Dark Horse in this tournament. I suggest laying

Lay Kukushkin@1.52, back@1.75

(Keep the stakes low here)

5. 13:30 – Khachanov v Karlovic

Khachanov really has been the surprise of this tournament. If he
serves as well as he has done so far, he can definitely beat Karlo!

Lay Karlovic@1.41, back@1.7


6. 10:00 – Stosur v Ivanovic

Lay Ivanovic@1.98, back@2.2

A very wild first set is likely here!

7. 11:15 – Kuznetsova v Vinci

I’d pick Kuznetsova here.

Back Kuznetsova@1.73, lay@1.4

8. 12:45 – Halep v Kleybanova

Kleybanova for me has been lucky that her opponents so far played rather poorly.
Tomorrow however, she is facing one of the tournament favourites in
Halep and this for me is likely to be an easy win in Simona’s favour!

Back Simona Halep@1.3, lay@1.15

9. 15:30 – Pavlyuchenkova v Hantuchova

I am rather confident on Pavlyu here!

Back Pavlyuchenkova@1.37, lay@1.14


10. 12:00 – Beck v Piter

Back Beck@1.47, lay@1.25

11. 13:15 – Voegele v Stephens

Back Stephens@1.5, lay@1.2

12. 17:00 – Wozniacki v Jovanovski

Looks like breaking up with Rory was the perfect medicine that
Wozniacki needed! The girl is on fire this week!

Back Wozniacki@1.4, lay@1.2

13. 18:15 – Lisicki v Knapp

Lisicki should wrap this up easy!

Back Lisicki@1.37, lay@1.14

HOT TIPS: Fognini, Raonic, Halep, Pavlyuchenkova, Stephens, Wozniacki
and Lisicki!


My best Outright Tip looking at all the tournaments is on
Pavlyuchenkova! The odds are currently around 8. Considering the fact
that she’s playing at home and her form has been rather solid, I think
she should be backed Heavily. After today’s match against Hantuchova,
its likely that will fall further!

If you’re backing heavy @ 8, you can give a lay price of 4.5 as that
may likely get matched.

Good luck!

    When you say – Free money, such as with Raonic today, do you mean – Back heavy?

    • Patrick Ross Posted October 18, 2013 4:33 pm

      Hi Silvana
      I feel very confident about the match, but chose not to put it BH. I will always explicitly say BH if I feel its appropriate. Keep the stakes normal for this one.
