PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 05:00 – Radwanska v Cibulkova
No doubt Radwanska is the better defensive player here but if you are talking about offense, Cibu has been extraordinary at Tokyo. Suggesting to Lay Radwanska at the start as I can see a see-saw affair.
—> Lay Radwa @1.5, Back @1.9
2. 08:00 – Allertova v Jankovic
Allertova has been the giant killer of this tournament knocking out the top seed Halep and beating a very tough Errani in 2 sets previously. Feel a Lay strategy looks right here as the underdog has returned exceptionally well so far..
—> Lay Janko @1.63, Back @2
3. 04:00 – Sasnovich v Schmiedlova
I feel there is reason to lay Schmiedlova today as Sasnovich has been amazing thus far beating both Rybarikova and an even tougher Sloane Stephens in two thoroughly one sided affairs.
The first set could be pretty tricky for the favourite ..
—> Lay Schmied @1.68, Back @2.4
1. 13:30 – Raonic v Agut –> HOT TIP
I didn’t expect Milos Raonic to put up a solid performance like he did against Robredo. Must say he was almost unplayable in that match. Serves are going to be vital yet again, so have to go for the Canadian at the start.
—> Back Raonic @1.4, Lay @1.18
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.
