BRD Nastase ATP:
1. 13:00 – G.Lopez v Rosol:
Rosol beating Simon is the main reason he’s favourite today and I feel
the market is rightly priced..
Back Rosol @1.64, lay @1.3
2. 13:00 – Sharapova v Li:
Match of the day without a question. Should be a cracking match in
terms of the tennis quality as both players, especially Li has looked
Definitely have to lay Sharapova at some point in the match and its
definitely worth considering laying the winner of the first set.
For me there are 3 scenarios here..
1. Less likely scenario – Sharapova winning the first set easily and
continuing to dominate in the 2nd.
2. More likely – Li winning the first set and being up a break in the
2nd and Sharapova fighting back.
3. Possible – Li winning the match easily in 2!
Either way I expect Li to play well even if she loses.
Strategy: Lay Sharapova @1.86, back @2.3
If Sharapova wins the first set, immediately lay her for some amount.
If this goes to a 3rd set by Li losing the second, consider backing
Sharapova more than Li.
3. 16:00 – Schiavone v Dominguez
Francesca has peaked at the right time just before the French open,
the only slam she has won. Great timing from her. She beat a very
tough player in Scheepers yesterday so you have to back her big here.
Dominguez beat Minella rather easily in the 3rd but if she serves poor
as she did today in the first set, she may get thrashed by Schiavone!
BH on Shiavone @1.5, lay @1.25
Good luck for all 3 matches!!
