PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP ESTORIL: (CLAY)
1. 14:50 – Lopez v Haase
So far in the season, Lopez has been more impressive on Clay than Haase. Suggesting to back him here.
—> Back Lopez @1.63, lay @1.25
2. 16:30 – Gasquet v de Schepper –> HOT TIP
Gasquet definitely looks back beating Marinko Matosevic in 2 sets earlier. This could be another comfortable win for the Frenchman I feel.
—> Back Gasquet @1.16, lay @1.04
ATP ISTANBUL: (CLAY)
3. 15:30 – Giraldo v Rublev
Rublev has been one of the stars on Clay this season as he beat some good players like Verdasco (in 2 sets) at Barcelona. This could end up as a tough match for Giraldo.
—> Lay Giraldo @1.69, back @2
ATP MUNICH: (CLAY)
4. 12:20 – Kohlschreiber v Zverev —> HOT TIP
As predicted, Kohlschreiber was spot on against the very talented Jiri Vesely in his previous match. I don’t see Zverev having much of a chance here. Odds of 1.22 seem to have a lot of value!
—> Back Kohli @1.22, lay @1.08
5. 13:15 – Bolelli v Goffin
Goffin hasn’t shown his best form so far in the season while Bolelli has really stepped up his game. I suggest laying the favourite here.
–> Lay Goffin @1.76, back @2.5
WTA MOROCCO: (CLAY)
6. 11:00 – Pereira v Babos
Pereira blew away Kanepi in the last round and I feel she’s likely to do the same to Babos today even though she beat Barthel rather comfortably.
—> Back Pereira @1.33, lay @1.14
7. 15:30 – Vinci v Knapp
Both players are tied 2-2 in head to head.
While Knapp beat Buyukakcay in 2 sets, Vinci strolled past Ursula Radwanska in 2 as well. Overall, I think Vinci may be finding some form now and deserves to be the right favourite in this battle between the two Italians.
—> Back Vinci @1.6, lay @1.25
WTA PRAGUE: (CLAY)
8. 12:00 – Allertova v Cornet
While Allertova beat Vandeweghe earlier, Cornet blew away a very tough Schmiedlova. Historically, Cornet has been a very good clay courter. Hence, I suggest backing the favourite here..
—> Back Cornet @1.66, lay @1.3
9. 15:00 – Vesnina v Strycova –> HOT TIP
Strycova had the tougher match against Brengle and is the right favourite here. At her home tournament, I am expecting the Czech to produce the goods today!
—> Back Strycova @1.53, lay @1.16
Some Terms Explained:
Back: Normal Stakes – use 10% of bank.

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.
