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. 14:00 – Jankovic v Niculescu –> HOT TIP

Jelena had a tough three setter against a very sharp looking Cepelova in the previous round. Niculescu blew away an erratic and out of form Lisicki.

While the Romanian can be a pain to play against, Jankovic should have the upper hand if her opponent’s weak serves are neutralized early on.

—> Back Janko @1.61, Lay @1.3

2. 14:00 – Putintseva v Bacsinszky

Around this time last year, one player who stepped up her game a lot was  Timea Bacsinszky. With a decent win over a very tough Mattek-Sands in the last round, I feel the Timea should have the edge here

—> Back Bacsinszky @1.58, Lay @1.25

3. 17:30 – Muguruza v Hibino —> NO STOP LOSSES SUGGESTED

This is a calculated trade against Muguruza who has been quite poor in recent matches. Hibino on the other hand is quite a tough player to deal with at the moment.

Worth a shot laying Mugu but keep the stakes to low or medium..

—> Lay Mugu @1.14, Back @1.4


4. 23:30 – Govortsova v Lara Vecino

Vecino’s game is more stable on Clay courts. Prefer laying her hence against a more dominant hard court player such as Govortsova.

—> Lay Vecino @1.71, Back @2.5
