All profits are calculated for a Back/Lay LIABILITY Stake of 10 units.

Mar 24: (+ 0.6 units)

1.  Raonic v Garcia Lopez: Successful: +1.6 units

2.  Bedene v Becker: Unsuccessful: -4 units

3.  Isner v Almagro: Successful: +1.85 units

4.  Makarova v Kerber: Successful: +2.3 units

5.  Venus Williams v Cibulkova: Successful: +2.85 units

6.  Ivanovic v Kvitova: Unsuccessful: -4 units

Overall: 4/6 Successful: +0.6 units

IN the last tip, even though unsuccessful, Kvitova stormed back to a huge victory here. Anyone who took my tip of laying Ivanovic would have made a decent chunk of money today. Sadly the strategy failed early on but Kvitova was the far better player from the 2nd set on!

    What is your general advice for this kind of losing trade, like Ivanovic v Kvitova?
    The original lay trade is lost. How much money should we lay on Ivanovic after the first set is won by Ivanovic? And when should we exit from this second trade, what is the profit target in ticks? Could you explain this in unit size? If my original liability was 10 unit, should I lay the same liability at the second trade?

      Hi Profitcsinalo

      Eventhough the trade was lost early on, this match could have been delayed and traded as the favourite odds wasn’t too low. Assuming you didn’t delay and trade and took the loss during the first set, the suggested option is always to wait out atleast a game of the player who lost the first set. In this case, once Kvitova holds, you can re enter the market.

      The loss acceptance now is however in your own hands as we are dealing with over 40% of your initial stake of 10 units. Hence, I can’t point out a liability stake here. I would simply say, whatever you are comfortable with.

      In WTA the favourite finds a way to fight back most times so once Kvitova is in a huge lead in the 2nd set, it might be worth minimizing the losses or possibly even a small profit and exit the market. This however was a rather strange match as Ivanovic losing 6-0 6-0 wasn’t on the cards. Personally I wouldn’t advise leaving the trade to go on unless there are injury issues.
