PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
WTA INDIAN WELLS:
1. 19:00 – Vandeweghe v Kuznetsova
Kuznetsova’s form is a serious question at the moment having lost 4 of her last 5 matches. Happy with Vandeweghe starting well as the American has some big serves in her artillery.
—> Back Vandeweghe @1.82, Lay @1.4
2. 19:00 – Kovinic v Kvitova –> NO STOP LOSS RECOMMENDED
Kvitova’s form is terrible and Kovinic is improving all the time. With very windy conditions here at Indian Wells, there is reason to believe that Kvitova won’t have everything going her way today. Reason to Lay the favourite here at the start.
—> Lay Kvitova @1.3, Back @1.7
For this tip, I will calculate the profits with 5 units as the maximum stake (our liability) instead of 10.
3. 20:30 – Pavlyuchenkova v Bondarenko –> NO STOP LOSS RECOMMENDED
One player who has transformed her game big time since the start of the season is Kateryna Bondarenko. With 4 wins of 5 matches and a loss only to Aga Radwanska, I feel money should be on the underdog here.
—> Lay Pavlyu @1.99, Back @3
4. 22:00 – Watson v Niculescu
Watson’s form is brilliant but more importantly, she has shown a lot of consistency in the serving department. Happy to back the Brit at the start.
—> Back Watson @1.97, Lay @1.45
ATP INDIAN WELLS:
5. 23:30 – Istomin v Kudla
A bit surprised by this pricing as Istomin’s last win came way back in late October last year! Since then he has an active 7 game losing streak. I’d rather go for the home favourite Kudla who did beat an in-form Rajeev Ram at Memphis back in February.
—> Lay Istomin @1.7, Back @2.5
