PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 04:00 – Ostapenko v Davis
While Ostapenko looked good against Brengle yesterday, I feel Davis’ win over a much tougher Strycova should get more respect.
Suggesting to lay Osta at the start..
—> Lay Osta @1.92, Back @2.8
2. 05:30 – Goerges v Konjuh
Goerges made a remarkable comeback against Wozniacki in the last round. While she is the right favourite, I believe Konjuh has the serves and plays very attacking game to trouble the German.
Suggesting to lay the favourite at the start again..
—> Lay Goerges @1.8, Back @2.6
3. 05:00 – Muguruza v Cornet
While Cornet’s win over Cibulkova was quite majestic, I believe she doesn’t have a great serve to trouble Muguruza who has played superb tennis.
Stick to the favourite at the start..
—> Back Mugu @1.4, Lay @1.16
4. 05:30 – Svitolina v Pliskova
Without a doubt Svito will find Pliskova an easier opponent to Kerber whom she stunned yesterday. More reason to lay the favourite here..
—> Lay Pliskova @1.74, Back @2.9
Stats will be calculated for a liability of 5 units here..
5. 04:00 – Konta v Siniakova
Siniakova has been outstanding throughout this tournament beating players like Halep. While Konta may be the right favourite on paper, I agree Sini will be a much tougher challenge than bookies think.
Laying Konta is the right strategy ..
—> Lay Konta @1.47, Back @2.5
6. 02:30 – J.Thompson v Nishikori (NO STOP LOSS SUGGESTED)
Thompson played a ton of brutal shots in his amazing win over the veteran David Ferrer in his previous match. While Nishikori will be tougher, I think the Australian has a slight chance in causing another huge upset.
Taking a calculated risk by laying the favourite in the beginning but keep the stakes low!
—> Lay Nishi @1.21, Back @1.8
Stats calculated for a liability of 4 units here.
7. 11:30 – Kovalik v Medvedev
Kovalik already caused the biggest upset of the tournament by beating two time Chennai winner Marin Cilic. Regardless of how well Medvedev has performed, the right strategy is to lay him at the start…
—> Lay Med @1.6, Back @2.9
Special advice: If Med wins the first set, I am suggesting to lay him at low odds. Keep the stakes low for this advice..
