PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 16:00 – Errani v Ostapenko
I was truly impressed with Errani’s very aggressive game against Hibi in the last round. Expecting this to favour the Italian at the start.
—> Back Errani @1.28, Lay @1.12
2. 16:00 – Konta v Muguruza
Konta’s form is pretty good but Muguruza is one tough cookie to crack. I just have to favour the Spaniard over the Brit today simply due to her sheer aggressive nature of Tennis.
—> Back Mugu @1.42, Lay @1.18
3. 17:30 – Barthel v Govortsova
Suggesting to Back Barthel at the start as she is the more aggressive server here.
However, don’t be surprised if this goes to a decider so consider laying the 1st set winner at low prices.
—> Back Barthel @1.8, Lay @1.4
4. 19:00 – Nara v Rogers —> HOT TIP
Kurumi Nara is an under-rated player in WTA. A very sound player on both defense and offense, she can be extremely tough to play against, even for some top 10 players.
Definitely suggesting to back her at the start.
—> Back Nara @1.88, Lay @1.45
5. 19:00 – Mahut v Garcia Lopez
Mahut put on a solid display in the previous round, beating American Querrey in 3 sets. I feel more is to come from the Frenchman today.
Considering he possesses the more consistent serves, suggesting to back him at the start.
—> Back Mahut @1.88, Lay @1.4
6. 20:30 – Kohlschreiber v Rosol –> HOT TIP
Kohli had a rather tough match against Zverev previously. This one though, should be more comfortable for the German.
Definitely back him at the beginning against a rather one-dimensional Rosol.
—> Back Kohli @1.36, Lay @1.12
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.
