PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 4:00 – Svitolina v Tomljanovic —> HOT TIP
I’m predicting Svitolina to cause some big upsets in this year’s WTA calendar.
She was absolutely brutal against Rybarikova only losing 2 games in her previous match. On the other hand, Tomljanovic played a very sloppy looking Jankovic who had enough chances to wrap up the first set.
Go for the Ukranian here.
Back Svitolina @1.5, lay @1.18
2. 4:30 – Diyas v Babos —> HOT TIP
Another girl who has vastly improved last year is Zarina Diyas. This young Kazakh talent is an extremely good defender and mentally very strong. She blew away a very decent talent in Donna Vekic 6-3 6-1 earlier. Also worth pointing out that she’s the 3rd favourite of this tourney only behind Wimbledon Champ, Petra Kvitova and the mighty Simona Halep.
Overall, I just think she’s the much better player here and another comfortable win is very likely to propel her through to the 3rd round.
Back Diyas @1.37, lay @1.16
I welcome all of you back for the first day of Trading Tips for 2015.
Let’s hope Svitolina, as our first tip, is going to be a good omen for this year!
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 https://tennis-trading-league.com/faq/
