PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP ESTORIL: (CLAY)
1. 16:30 – Coric v Garcia Lopez
Garcia’s formhas been impressive on Clay so far. I feel he is the right favourite here and should get past the young Coric without too many problems..
—> Back Garcia Lopez @1.53, lay @1.2
2. 19:30 – Gasquet v Almagro
Considering Gasquet has played pretty well so far and hasn’t lost a set yet, this could turn out to be a thriller which could indeed go all the way. However, suggesting to lay Almagro at the start..
—> Lay Almagro @1.77, back @2.6
ATP ISTANBUL: (CLAY)
3. 17:15 – Bellucci v Cuevas –> HOT TIP
Cuevas has played exceptionally well on Clay this season and was always my 3rd favourite for this tournament. Definitely suggesting to back him today, even though Bellucci has played pretty well so far..
—> Back Cuevas @1.65, lay @1.28
ATP MUNICH: (CLAY)
4. 15:00 – Agut v Estrella Burgos
While Agut beat an out of form Stepanek in his previous match, Burgos beat a very rejuvenated looking Tipsarevic in his previous match, after knocking out Troicki in the first round (in 2 sets)!
I feel bookies may have priced this market wrong as I find value in backing Estrella today.
Suggesting to lay Agut here but do keep the stakes low…
—> Lay Agut @1.28, back @1.6
WTA MOROCCO: (CLAY)
5. 12:00 – Mladenovic v Babos
Both have played some amazing tennis so far in Morocco. While Babos beat tough opponents, namely Pereira and Pennetta, in her earlier rounds, Mladenovic also had very tough challenges through Muguruza and Vecino, beating both in 2 sets.
Definitely agreeing with the odds here as Mladenovic should be the slight favourite..
—> Back Mladenovic @1.9, lay @1.5
6. 13:30 – Svitolina v Schmiedlova
Anna Achmiedlova has played only one previous tournament on Clay this season which was at Rio de Janerio, where she was the runner up to Sara Errani. Amazingly, she is currently on a 10 game win streak and looks ultra confident.
I feel this may end up as a pretty tough one for the Ukranian, Svitolina.
—> Lay Svitolina @ 1.94, back @2.6
WTA PRAGUE: (CLAY)
7. 11:30 – Siniakova v Hradecka
Siniakova had 3 tough opponents so far in Begu, Hercog and Strycova and beat all in 2 sets which is truly impressive. While Hradecka has played good tennis here at Prague, I feel there is more element of inconsistency in her game.
A potential 3 setter but suggesting to back Sinia at the start..
—> Back Siniakova @1.95, lay @1.45
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.
