1. 6:00 – Radwanska v Pliskova —> HOT TIP
By form Radwanska has to be the right player to back here as she has put on some very consistent performances in all previous 3 tourneys. While Pliskova has the serves and power, Radwanska has enough defense in her game to neutralize the Czech’s aggression.
Definitely back her at the beginning!
—> Back Radwa @1.35, Lay @1.14
WTA HONG KONG:
2. 09:30 – Venus Williams v Jankovic
Amazing that both players had a similar scoreline victory in the last round, 6-1 6-1! This could be a cracking match on paper and the first set isn’t going to be easy to predict. Suggesting to lay Venus therefore..
—-> Lay Venus @1.6, Back @2
3. 09:30 – Nadal v Tsonga
Tsonga has had three deciding set matches so far in Shanghai. On the other hand, after a tough match against Karlovic, Nadal is starting to look comfortable with 2 solid wins over Raonic and Wawrinka. I get the feeling this could be another win for the Spaniard.
—> Back Nadal @1.45, Lay @1.2
Some Terms Explained:
Back: Normal Stakes – use 10% of bank with Stop loss at 40%.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade. Use Stop Loss at 40% unless stated otherwise.
Lay: Normal stakes – use 10% of bank with Stop Loss at 40%.
Lay Heavy(LH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade. Use Stop Loss at 40% unless stated otherwise.
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.
No Stop Loss Suggested – Use of Stop Loss is not recommended for this tip. Use half Normal Stake.
Tips are deemed unsuccessful at 40% loss of stake, when stop loss is used
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.
