PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP ERSTE BANK:
1. 14:00 – Rosol v Lacko
Stats point towards a tight match here. Even though Rosol played well in the ATP circuit prior to the US open, Lacko has gained some good confidence through some decent Challenger matches against good players.
Lay Rosol @ 1.82, back @ 2.4
I think delaying and trading is definitely wise here..
2. 18:45 – Kohlschreiber v Berlocq –> HOT TIP
Hard vs Clay here..
I suggest backing the very experienced and pretty solid hard courter here who is Kohli!
Back Kohli @ 1.38, lay @ 1.18
3. 9:00 – Groth v Agut
Agut’s previous game against Kuznetsov was solid from start to finish. If he plays that well, Groth is going to have a quick exit!
Back Agut who is improving at a rapid pace!
Back Agut @ 1.33, lay @ 1.1
4. 9:00 – Raonic v Berankis
Berankis is a pretty good player on hard courts but I seriously doubt if he can break Canadian’s mighty serves. With serves as an added insurance, the right option is definitely to back the overwhelming favourite here.
Back Raonic @ 1.19, lay @ 1.07
5. 13:30 – Begu v Makarova
I just can’t see Makarova losing at home to Begu. She’s a tough hard courter to beat even for some of the top 10 players. If Begu’s serves don’t hold this will be an easy 2 set win for the Russian.
Back Maka @ 1.35, lay @ 1.1
6. 17:00 – Pennetta v Giorgi –> HOT TIP
Giorgi’s recent form suggests she’s going in the right direction but I feel there are too many unforced errors in her game. Penneta, on the contrary doesn’t give many cheap points. This will be a tough challenge for Camilla so I’m suggesting to lay her !
Lay Giorgi @ 1.7, back @ 2.5
7. 11:00 – Bertens v Cornet –> HOT TIP
Definitely the experience goes to Cornet here.
Back Cornet @ 1.36, lay @ 1.16
8. 11:00 – Sock v Golubev
Sock’s recent form has been rather good knocking out both Nishikori and Tomic at the Shanghai Masters. Golubev on the other hand hasn’t beaten any good enough players to talk about. The American is definitely the better starter of these two with his quick service games so back him here..
Back Sock @ 1.54, lay @ 1.2
9. 12:45 – Tomic v Anderson
The interesting fact here is that Tomic has beaten Anderson in 2 of their 3 meetings with both wins coming off hard courts. I suggest laying Anderson here as he has looked not particularly impressive since his US Open exit.
Lay Anderson @ 1.56, back @ 2
