AUSTRALIAN OPEN DAY 4:
1. 01:00 – Strycova v Petkovic
Strycova is a dangerous opponent for some of the best players currently. Agreeing she is the right favourite for this match up.
—> Back Strycova @1.56, Lay @1.2
2. 01:30 – Brady v Watson
I was more impressed with Watson’s win over Sam Stosur in the last round. If she can remain that consistent on serve, this is very likely to go in favour of the Brit.
Stick to the favourite at the start..
—> Back Watson @1.57, Lay @1.2
3. 04:15 – Cornet v Sakkari
Constantly improving her game, Maria Sakkari is one of the stars to watch out for in the coming years. I feel Cornet will be made to work today..
Suggesting to lay the favourite at the start..
—> Lay Cornet @1.49, Back @2
4. 07:30 – Gavrilova v Konjuh
I really like Gavrilova’s game but she definitely looked rattled against Naomi Broady in the last round. On the contrary, Konjuh destroyed Mladenovic 6-4 6-2 in round 1!
More reason to lay Gavri at the start..
—> Lay Gavrilova @1.95, Back @2.9
5. 05:00 – Paire v Fognini
Must say that Fognini’s last win against an experienced Feliciano Lopez was simply spectacular.
Sticking to the Italian at the start..
—> Back Fognini @1.75, Lay @1.27
6. 09:15 – Thiem v Thompson —> NO STOP LOSS SUGGESTED
Agreeing that Thiem is the right favourite on paper but with the crowd behind him, Jordan Thompson might pull a rabbit out of the hat as his form isn’t too bad, beating players like Ferrer in Brisbane recently.
Opting for a calculated risk by laying Thiem in the beginning…
—> Lay Thiem @1.28, Back @1.7
