3. 1:30 – Pennetta v Cadantu

Don’t see Pennetta losing here!

Back Pennetta@1.23, lay@1.05

4. 2:45 – Beck v Martic

I feel Beck should be laid here..

Lay Beck@1.69, back@1.95

5. 2:45 – Glushko v Safarova

Glushko may pull of an unlikely upset here..

Lay Safarova@1.1, back@1.4

If Safarova wins the first set and the odds go below 1.05, lay her!

Zheng has had some poor displays recently..

Back Vinci@1.58, lay@1.2
