PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 09:40 – Wawrinka v Cilic
Head to head stats and current form is definitely favouring Stan Wawrinka here. Prefer backing the Swiss at the start who has served brilliantly in recent matches and returned exceptionally well..
—> Back Wawrinka @1.54, Lay @1.25
2. 04:30 – Lyudmyla Kichenok v Ying-Ying Duan
Suggesting to lay Duan because Kichenok caused a major upset beating Flavia Pennetta in 2 sets previously.
—> Lay Duan @1.55, Back @2
1. 13:00 – Pavlyuchenkova v Voegele
Pavlyuchenkova not only looks a good bet for this match but also for the tournament outright as she has stepped up her game big time in the past week.
Back the Russian at the beginning..
—> Back Pavlyu @1.33, Lay @1.14
2. 14:30 – Barthel v Krunic
Krunic continues her good form with a sublime performance against Vinci. Suggesting to lay Barthel at the start as the first set could end up very tricky for the favourite…
—> Lay Barthel @1.7, Back @2.4
3. 19:00 – Strycova v Allertova
Allertova was quite good at the US Open only losing to eventual runner-up Roberta Vinci in 3 sets. She continued her good momentum in Guangzhou where she ended up as the finalist.
Prefer laying Strycova at the start as Allertova is good enough to win it.
—> Lay Strycova @1.9, Back @2.6
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.
