PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 12:15 – Kohlschreiber v Vesely
I realize Vesely’s form has been good but Kohli is still the right favourite here as he has always been an excellent clay courter and is playing in front of his home crowd today.
—> Back Kohli @1.45, lay @1.15
2. 13:00 – Stakhovsky v Ledovskikh
Ledovskikh hasn’t played anyone worth mentioning recently while Stakhovsky has generally played OK this season. This match is going to be about experience really, so I must suggest backing Stakho.
—> Back Stakhovsky @1.23, lay @1.07
3. 10:30 – Witthoeft v Maria
Carina Witthoeft played some solid Tennis in Stuttgart where she beat home favourite Mona Barthel in 2 sets. I feel she is just about the right favourite here but there is a possibility this could go the distance.
—> Back Witthoeft @1.6, lay @1.3
4. 13:30 – Kanepi v Pereira –> HOT TIP
The head to head is a 1-0 win for Kanepi here. However, recent form suggests Pereira is definitely worth backing today as she played exceptionally well in Bogota a week back.
Back Pereira @1.7, lay @1.25
5. 14:00 – Pennetta v Jovanovski —> HOT TIP
Neither player has set foot on Clay yet in 2015, but due to her huge experience, I would definitely go for Flavia Pennetta here.
—> Back Pennetta @1.2, lay @1.14
6. 11:30 – Pavlyuchenkova v Hradecka
Hradecka has been good as she played some good tennis at Charleston beating players like Diyas, Garcia and Errani. Pavlyu has mostly avoided Clay this season so I’m fancying the home favourite to shine today.
–> Back Hradecka @1.68, lay @1.25

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.
