Betfair Tennis Trading Tips: ATP/WTA Sunday 12th October

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. 9:30 – Federer v Simon

Roger scraped through against Mayer and played a dominant match against Djokovic which was rather surprising. He’s now the rightful favourite against Simon who must be credited for reaching the final here.

I just think Federer has the overall better game here but wouldn’t be too surprised if this goes to 3 sets. I’m suggesting to back Roger but keep the stakes low at the start.

Back Federer @ 1.28, lay @ 1.14



2. 4:00 – Stosur v Diyas –> HOT TIP

For me the real heroine of this tournament has been Zarina Diyas. The way she is playing at the moment, she’s bound to enter the TOP 10 rank sometime in the near future (at least that’s what I predict).

Sam has played well but from a rally point of view, Diyas is exceptionally quick, sharp and accurate. Therefore I disagree with the odds here and feel Stosur must be laid.

I’m hence going for a pretty calculated tip by going for LAY HEAVY HERE!


LH Sam Stosur @ 1.38, back @ 2.24

(If the worst scenario unfolds by Sam winning the first set easily, I definitely suggest laying the Australian at low odds of 1.09 and below)



3. 7:00 – Riske v Bencic –> HOT TIP

Two really decent WTA players at the moment. Odds are favouring Bencic here and I’m agreeing to that. I feel Bencic is slightly the better server and the overall consistent player of these two. This could go all the way and may end up as a tough one to call but I feel it’s likely Bencic odds may drop sometime in the first set to a considerable level. Hence, I choose to back her.

Back Bencic @ 1.7, lay @ 1.4



4. 12:30 – Giorgi v Pliskova

A very tough one to call, this one is likely to end in three sets. While Giorgi is the favourite, it’s worth pointing out that Pliskova has pretty much all the attributes to her game as the Italian does such as serves and power. Hence, I think to lay her is the right strategy. I see a very likely fluctuating first set.

Lay Giorgi @ 1.86, back @ 2.24

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.
