PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 16:00 – Kvitova v Schmiedlova
No doubt Schmiedlova has been rather amazing in recent tournaments. However Kvitova has raced past both her previous opponents so far.
With Schmied just about sneaking by Kovinic in the last round, I do wonder if Kvitova is going to be tested here at all.
Have to agree with the odds..
—> Back Kvitova @1.22, Lay @1.12
2. 16:00 – Petkovic v Konta
I am favouring Petko as I can’t see another shock upset from Konta today. When it comes to experience, the German is the right player to go for here.
—> Back Petkovic @1.6, Lay @1.25
3. 18:15 – Errani v Stosur —> HOT TIP
Amongst the field of decent outsiders, former US Open Champ Sam Stosur has definitely stepped up her game for this tournament. If Errani starts like she did against Ostapenko, this one is going to be a quick win for the Australian. Definitely go for Sam Stosur at the beginning.
—> Back Stosur @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.
