Spartan Tennis Trading Tips Thursday 18th February

Spartan Trading Tips are published when all have been played – in order to get Today’s Tips, join by clicking here and I’ll mail them to you!! 

All times are UK/Irish and are subject to change, and all times are in 24hr format e.g., 01.00 = 1am and 16:00 = 4pm:



1. 16:30 – Soler-Espinosa v Kovinic

Espinosa is the much better clay courter and thoroughly dominated her earlier match against Oprandi. Kovinic’s game is more suited to hard courts so expecting a jump in her odds in the first set.

—> Lay Kovinic @1.53, Back @2

2. 18:00 – Martic v Erakovic

A huge upset caused by Petra Martic in the last match against the home favourite and solid clay courter, Teliana Pereira. If she can continue that sort of form, Erakovic will have a tough task here.

—> Lay Erakovic @1.85, Back @2.6


3. 11:00 – Kuznetsov v Halys

Kuznetsov has improved a ton in recent months and also has the experience behind him coming into this match. While Halys has played OK recently, I feel the Russian is going to be a tough player to break early on. Stick to Kuznetsov at the start..

—> Back Kuznetsov @1.41, Lay @1.18


4. 15:00 – Giraldo v Pella

While Pella beat Isner in the previous round, it must be said that his serve consistency is still an issue. I’d rather stick to Giraldo at the beginning who I believe is the right favourite here..

—> Back Giraldo @1.98, Lay @1.55
