Italia Open ATP:
1. 10:00 – Monaco v Paire:
Back Monaco @1.35, lay @1.2
(Consider laying Monaco if he wins the first set easily. Looking at
Paire’s game on clay, he hasn’t been that bad eventhough inconsistency
is his nemesis!)
2. 10:00 – Ramos v Hajek;
Back Ramos @1.35, lay @1.15
3. 11:00 – Stepanek v Starace:
Possible 3 setter here.
Lay Stepanek @1.5, back @1.75
4. 11:15 – Kuznetsov v Malisse:
Back Kuznetsov @1.44, lay @1.25
5. 12:30 – Montanes v Klizan
Lay Klizan @1.92, back @2.3
6. 12:30 – Nieminen v Gulbis
Lay Gulbis @1.37, back @1.6
7. 13:30 – Fognini v Seppi
Lay Fognini @1.76, back @2.2
(This is worth considering for BH as I expect it to be a tough 3
setter and the odds are likely to fluctuate a lot!)
8. 13:45 – Giraldo v Janowicz
Back Janowicz @1.8, lay @1.5
9. 18:00 – Kohli v Raonic
Back Raonic @1.6, lay @1.3
10. 20:00 – Nishikori v Lorenzi
NIshi odds may decrease straight away but I feel Lorenzi has a decent
chance to win this!
Hence, lay Nishi (you can wait for his odds to decrease a bit at the
start) @1.34, back @1.6
If Nishi wins the first set very easily, still lay him. This could be
a very profitable market!
11. 10:00 – Morita v Cirstea
Morita for me has a decent chance to cause an upset here hence lay Cirstea.
Lay Cirstea @1.53, back @1.85
12. 10:00 – Lisicki v Burdette
Back Lisicki @1.45, lay @1.25
Definitely consider laying Lisicki at the end of the first set if she
wins as Burdette was very impressive in recent matches. But its better
to back Lisicki at the start.
13. 10:00 – Niculescu v Peng
Back Nicu @1.81, lay @1.5
(This match being on clay I feel can be considered to be BH depending
14. 11:15 – Burnett v Cornet
Lay Cornet @1.61, back @1.85
15. 12:15 – Venus v Robson
Lay Venus @1.77, back @2.1
It’s very likely Robson may start better. As time goes however, I
expect Venus to be stronger.
16. 12:30 – Hsieh v Stosur
This could be one of the matches of the day for me.
First of all, if Stosur wins the first set lay her! Hsieh has proven
many times to be a really tough player to beat as the match drags on.
So ideally give a lay price already on Stosur @1.08 or less.
At the start however its safer to go with Stosur.
Back Stosur @1.2, lay @1.06
17. 12:30 – Muguruza v Johansson
Back Muguruza @1.5, lay @1.3
18. 13:45 – Jankovic v Pironkova
For me Pironkova has to come from behind to win this which is rather
unlikely. Back Jankovic at the start hence.
Back Janko@1.25, lay @1.1
19. 13:45 – Kuznetsova v Halep
Credit to Kuznetsova, eventhough she has lost recently in early
stages, she has lost to really good players. I expect this match to go
in her favour.
Back Kuzy@1.4, firstname.lastname@example.org
20: 18:30 – Schiavone v Bertens
You have to back Schiavone her mainly for the reason that she’s at
home. The italians are all good on clay and Schiavone is a French open
champ. I expect her to start firing straight away. Having said that
Bertens can be a really tough player to beat. This may go to a 3
Back Schiavone @1.62, lay @1.35
If Schiavone loses the first set, lay something on Bertens and keep
Schia’s side with minimal loss.
Good luck for all the 20 matches given!
