    Non-League Predictions > January 19th

    Last Saturday wasn't good, but it does seem to be one bad day followed by one good day at the moment so hopefully that means it will be a profitable weekend. I have 6 bets in the 3 National League's this Saturday. Maidenhead v Solihull Maidenhead have only lost one of their last 5 games, but they haven't played anyone as good as Solihull in that spell. They lost to bottom side Braintree, Got 4 points in their two games against Aldershot, beat a severely weakened Gateshead 1-0 and then on Tuesday night beat Maidstone. So they have played 3 of the 4 teams below them in the table and a one team who were struggling to put 11 fit men on the pitch. Solihull are now in 3rd place and are just 3 points off Leyton Orient. They did need a replay on Tuesday night to overcome Halifax in the FA Trophy, but obviously with Maidenhead also playing on Tuesday that shouldn't come into it. They also landed the max bet against Gateshead in their last game easier than the 2-1 scoreline suggests. They should be odds on to win this so 11/10 with Betway looks a big price. Maidstone v Dagenham & Redbridge I was half tempted to put Maidstone up as a bet on Tuesday night, but thankfully was put off in the end as they lost 4-2 to Maidenhead. That made it 11 losses at home in the league with just the one victory. Whoever comes in as manager has to improve that home form fast. It is often said that a 3G pitch is an advantage for the home team, but it clearly isn't in this case as Maidstone have won 6 times away from home. Dagenham caused us a painful lost a couple of weeks ago after coming from 3-0 down to go 4-3 up and then draw 4-4 with Boreham Wood. Since Dagenham scored two very late goals to beat Hartlepool I have put them up 3 times as a bet and they have failed to win each time. Fair to say they owe us won again and they do look a cracking be here. Their away form has been strong winning 4 of their last 6 and only losing 1-0 to Sutton and Orient. They performed with credit at Salford in the FA Trophy last weekend and they should be favourites to win this. At Marathons' 83/50 they look a really good bet. Salford v Gateshead Salford have certainly bounced back from their tricky spell where it looked like they may have fallen out of contention for the title. So on the back of 4 losses on the bounce they then went and beat Wrexham and Leyton Orient without conceding a goal, which was important for them as defensively they had looked very suspect in recent weeks. Gateshead might not be quite as weak as they were against Maidenhead or Solihull, but they have lost manager Steve Watson to York in the meantime. This could hardly be a tougher game for the new manager given Salford have only conceded 13 goals at home losing just one and obviously they have such an impressive team. I think this could be a fairly easy win for the home side as I don't think Gateshead are anywhere near to a side who are 8th in the table at the moment. I think they can overcome the -1 handicap which is 17/10 with Betway. Bradford Park Avenue v Blyth Spartans Picking up just 1 point in their last four have meant BPA have fallen from the top spot in the National League North table. It was a poor loss last week to FCUM as well given they are in the relegation zone and had a few players missing. This game should be even harder as well given Blyth haven't lost in 10 league games now. Strangely enough their last defeat was to FCUM. They were superb in the FA Trophy last week beating Boreham Wood and they have recovered nicely after a very poor start to the season. I would have these two much closer together in the betting than the bookies have them and the 23/10 with BetVictor is well worth taking. AFC Telford v Kidderminster Telford have very similar home form to Salford in that they have only lost once and conceded just 12 goals. Their away form looks like it will stop them being possible title winners, but they are obviously bang in the play-off hunt. The one team they lost to at home was Bradford whilst they were flying so there is nothing wrong with that at all and they really ought to be shorter than the 8/5 they are with William Hill. The prices make little sense really given Kiddie are 6 points behind their hosts having played a game more. As I have mentioned a few times on here in recent weeks they have been in awful form for weeks now. They have lost 5 of their last 6 games and a win over lowly Hereford was the positive result in that spell. Not surprisingly they sacked their manager last week, but they still lost to Boston and they really do look in free fall at the moment. In my view Telford should be close to even money to win this so they look a fantastic bet. Truro v Weston-Super-Mare Ignore the fact Truro lost 5-0 to Stockport in the FA Trophy last Saturday as they played a strong team in good form plus they were pretty much down to the bare bones. They had players cup-tied as well as injured and suspended and they will be able to put out a much stronger team on Saturday. Not only that but Weston are a million miles away from being Stockport. These two teams played each other in the previous round of the FA Trophy and Truro won 4-0. That was their first game back in Truro and they are now there full time. Truro are pulling themselves away from the relegation zone and I think they will be safe. They have won 5 of their last 10 games and their 4 defeats were against Oxford City, Torquay twice and Welling. Weston are nowhere near the level of those 3 and I would be shocked if they didn't go down. There is just enough in the price at Marathon of 53/50 to make the home side a play here. Solihull 2.5pts @ 11/10 with Betway Dagenham & Redbridge 2.5pts @ 83/50 with Marathon Salford -1 1pt @ 17/10 with Betway Blyth 1pt @ 23/10 with BetVictor AFC Telford 5pts @ 2/1 with Bet365 Truro 2pts @ 53/50 with Marathon So on Twitter and the message below people have been letting me know about the Telford drift. I have been told that Kidderminster were also heavily backed last Friday before the Boston game and we obviously know how well that gamble turned out! Telford were backed after I tipped them up so some people have got a bigger price on Kidderminster thanks to me. This is far from the first time it has happened to one of my strong bets and it will be Asian money. The Asians base their bets purely on data and I actually like it when they have a different view to me mainly because it allows us to get a bigger price, but also because I am usually on the right side of the result. One that sticks out is last season when I was big on Aldershot to win at Dagenham in a teatime game on TV. This was the week when Dagenham announced they were in trouble and had sold a few players. Clearly the Aisian's took none of this into account as on Saturday afternoon all the money was on Dagenham. Aldershot duly won. Now I obviously can't guarantee Telford will win tomorrow, but what I can guarantee is they are huge value at 2/1 which is freely available with a few bookies including Bet365. I have had two Kidderminster fans on Twitter tell me they have no idea why anyone would want to back them and the fact they are even money for an away game at a team who have only failed to win 4 games at home season is just bizarre especially when you add into the mix their current form. What on earth the Asians use to come up with their bets I don't know but they would be better off doing more homework. I don't usually go in again when the price drifts, but plenty of punters do and there is nothing wrong with going against the crowd (given I often back the outsider it works for me) or in this case going against a few people in Asia! Based on the current price I am now bumping Telford up to a max bet. Basically if they had been 2/1 last night when I did my preview I would have put them up as a max bet so I am now adding a further 2 points on them. They might not win, but that price is a huge error and Telford should be the 11/10 shots.

    Southampton v Everton If I had to choose 1 team this weekend to bet against, it would be Everton. They are so inconsistent, show poor away form, and have stagnated a little (in my opinion) under SIlva. Is Silva all that good? Hmmmm, jury is out. When looking at previous results I tend to ignore the anomalies. If you remove the 1-5 away win at Burnley, Everton don't look so clever, scoring just 4 goals in 7 away games. I really don't think they can win here, but the Saints will also struggle. However, I think the new manager makes the difference here. I do like the over 2.5 goals here for 2 reasons; 1) Two evenly matched teams that will both reckon they have a winning chance, will create an open game. 2) Saints are finding 1st half goals in recent home league games. Early goals open up games. I would be going over 2.5 goals here, but if I was backing a winner, I would be going Saints and over 2.5 (based on head to head Saints 4 wins in 5 in this fixture.) Saints HOME WIN & OVER 2.5 goals odds 4.25

    Rafael Nadal (-5) to beat Tomas Berdych at 1.85 with Marathon I watched both today and I can't see Berdych doing much even in his current form. The mental handicap is still going to be there most likely and Nadal's somewhat improved serve should be crucial in making the Czech suffer.

    Rafael Nadal (-6.5) to beat Alex De Minaur at 1.86 with Marathon Fair play to De Minaur, but he looked toast at the end of his match with Laaksonen and he doesn't have any weapons to really hurt Nadal with. His best approach is to be inspired by how Schwartzman was handling Nadal in the past, but you need a lot of energy for that and I don't see the Australian having enough after playing so much tennis recently. He can nick a set somehow I guess, but, if he does, I'd expect Nadal to get at least one 6-1 or 6-2 set in return.

    In particular, we have Bolton's game with West Brom and we will support the best team. This is West Brom, which ignores the joy of winning for three races, enough for her momentum and goals. Today, however, he has the opportunity to return to the three-pointer after a long while as he faces a subordinate team. From the most commercial points with a West Brom victory BOLTON WANDERERS vs WEST BROMWICH ALBION @@ WEST BROMWICH ALBION, odds 1.80

    Pliskova to beat Muguruza @ 1.80 with SportingBet This pick is largely based on Pliskova's big lead in the H2H, winning 3/4 times in 2017 alone. I do confess that I have not managed to watch any of Pliskova's games, however, having watched the Muguruza/Bacsinszky game, I do think a better player, like Pliskova, could better take advantage of Muguruza's serve, which was looking a tad vulnerable (in contrast to the game vs. Konta).

    Did you actually watch the matches? No offense, i also think Nishikori should pull this off and win vs. Sousa BUT Nishikori looked horrible. How can you write that Nishikori was more convincing than Sousa? Sousa played 2times better than Nishikori in both of his matches. Nishikori was outpointed by Karlovic from time to times and i do not talking about the serve or something. Nishikori was absymal vs. Majchrzak and didn't look good vs. Karlovic either. I would not touch this handicap with one hand right now. Sousa also has a very awkward style and also uses a lot of slices like Karlovic and Nishikori had many problems to handle the slice. The H2H is irrelevant as one win for Sousa was a retirement by Nishikori by the way. 1-1 sounds so even considering Sousa never won a set vs. Nishikori. Still, i doubt this is serious value. I would consider taking the over here instead of -6 at worse odds. Sousa looked pretty good so far and beat two very good players (Kohli, Pella). Was very impressed by the serve of Sousa which worked really well under those conditions. Anyway...good luck but i can only stay away from that match. Everything can happen but if everything goes his way sousa should have pretty decent chance to win at least one set here.

    Hunter Chase - 3.25 Ludlow

    Good to see a big field of 13 for the 2nd Hunter Chase of the season especially given we have been used to seeing small fields over jumps in recent weeks. It is an interesting race as well although there are plenty that I think have little chance. Didntitellya, Tb Broke Her, Bosmna Rule and Deadly Sting are crossed off straight away. Odd to see Sadler's Risk run again so quickly after what happened at Taunton last week, but I can't have him either. Mantou won a very weak Hunter Chase at Sedgefield last year and the rest of his form last season suggests he is going to struggle to make much of an impact here. I find it odd to see that the Racing Post Spotlight writer suggests Little Jon has been accustomed to stronger races than this, because I don't think he has been in his last few runs. The Wincanton run was decent enough when he was 2nd back in March, but that was off 123 and even that run I don't think would be good enough to win this. Added to that I think he wants a shorter trip. I must admit I know very about No Duffer's trainer. I am as certain as I can be that it will be his first ever runner as he hasn't trained any pointers and had no runners under rules. The only A Lake I can find in the pointing register is a jockey who had 3 rides back in 2006. My guess is it is the same guy, but I can offer no more info beyond that. He is clearly on the downgrade, but did run really well to finish 2nd at Ascot back in March, the runs either side of it weren't without promise either especially in the context of this race. If he was still with Tom George then I would have been stronger on his chances, but the percentage call is that first time out he is worth opposing especially given I know little about the trainer. I'm really surprised Crazy Jack is in single figures for this. To be fair he had run some creditable races in hunter chases over the last couple of years before he finally won one at Stratford's Hunter Chase night. However that was a handicap and he was thrown in off a mark of 109 based on his two previous runs at Cheltenham and here at Ludlow. I don't think he quite stays this far and Now Ben has beaten him in the past and I don't think he can reverse the form. Every chance this is being used as a pipe opener for the season. Now Ben won the John Corbet Cup in 2017 and was due to run in this race last year but was a non runner. He won 3 from 4 in points and his only Hunter Chase run was in the Stratford Foxhunters where the ground was totally against him after it was over watered. This season he returned with a good win at Cottenham in quick time as well. I'm not surprised he has already been nibbled in the betting because a double figure price about this course and distance winner was crazy. As long as they don't get too much rain the ground will be ideal. I am surprised to see Taunton winner Road To Rome out again so soon. Hard to know the reason why either, but he has to have a big chance on that form. He thrashed them and his point rating he got after that is the same as Marinero has so it is hard to see why those two should have such a big price difference. Interestingly he has led in all four runs for his trainer so far and Now Ben and Beeves are also likely pace setters so it will be interesting to see if Will decides to just sit in behind if he feels they are going too quick. I wasn't overly impressed with his jumping last week, but Ludlow isn't much of a jumping test and it wasn't as if he ever looked like falling. I find it hard to see him being out of the frame at the very least. Marinero is the Maxwell chosen one from his numerous entries, but I actually don't really fancy him. That Ascot Hunter Chase he won doesn't look too bad form on first glance as the 2nd Numbercruncher, who he beat 24L, went on to win a Hunter Chase at Fontwell. However Numbercruncher was knackered and he doesn't stay that far especially in soft ground. The favourite Monsieur Gibraltar unseated his jockey and the rest weren't up too much so for me that form is very suspect. He might hit the frame, but I think the only way he can win is if the other 3 main rivals all take each other on up front and set it up for a horse to come from behind. I can't remember Jennie Candlish having a Hunter Chase runner before and it is slightly strange they are going down this route with Beeves given his owners don't want to have runners at Cheltenham and thus unless they have a change of heart he won't be seen in the Foxhunters'. He was in front of No Duffer at Uttoxeter when he was 3rd in May so on that running he has that one beat. He was then 2nd off 147 at Perth in June which was a very good effort. He was disappointing after that in the Summer Cup at Uttoxeter. He returned at Kelso last month when 5th in a veterans' race. It was a reasonable return although I am suspect of the form. Granted the 2nd has one since, but Cultram Abbey's only Hunter Chase win came in a penalty kick at Perth and he was stuffed in the final at Sandown. Connections clearly think he is badly handicapped off 145 so it is a case of how much he has regressed as to if he is going to win this or not. The other thing to note is the other front runners in the race and will he have the legs to see off his younger rivals? Beeves might be good enough to win this, but at 6/4 he has to be taken on. He might have needed that Kelso run, but there is also a chance he has regressed and we know both Now Ben and Road To Rome are in flying form at the moment. Given Marinero is the only other one I can give a chance to I think there is good value in backing both Now Ben and Road To Rome e/w in this. Road To Rome is clearly very progressive and it would not surprise me if he landed the 2nd Hunter Chase of the season after claiming the 1st last week. With the ground ideal for Now Ben he has to be backed as well as he looks over-priced to me. It would not surprise me if both ended up a fair bit shorter in the betting than they are now come race time. Road To Rome 1.5pts e/w at 7/1 with William Hill and BetVictor Now Ben 1pt e/w at 9/1 with William Hill

    Norwich vs Birmingham The Championship Friday night game serves up a mouth-watering encounter when promotion-chasing Norwich host play-off contenders Birmingham in a 7:45pm kick-off at Carrow Road. Neither side is experiencing the best form right now so the result here could play a pivotal role in how their seasons shape up between now and May. Norwich are without a win in four league games now. It's a run of poor form that has seen Daniel Farke's side drop out of the automatic promotion spots. The positive stance on this is that the Canaries have only lost 1 of their matches during that run and it's now only 1 defeat in the league since 6th October, 2018. Win here and things will be back to normal. Birmingham are finally looking like a really solid team under Garry Monk. The Blues are in 8th place and just 4 points outside the play-offs. Things could have been so much better though with the club now having gone three league games without a victory. Just 2 goals scored in their last 3 league games shows where the problem lies. The poor defensive record of Norwich might be a chance for the Blues to resolve that issue. The Canaries boast one of the best home records in the division so I'm thinking that backing them to win might be the sensible choice. Birmingham have quiet an average away record and they might find this trip too much. Norwich might not have been winning games lately but they're still making themselves hard to beat and that could prove the difference here.

    I like Ortega-Olmedo to beat Maden. Roberto Ortega-Olmedo @ 3.91 Pinnacle 4/10 Spaniard has a couple of decent results on hardcourt / indoor hardcourt and he gave Maden a good fight two years ago on Madens best surface clay so i do not see why Ortega should not able to beat him indoor as the Spaniard likes to play on fast surfaces. Maden also is coming back from an injury, he had no real off season with a training camp or something. His first round opponent was a bum.

    Kiki Bertens + Schwartzman + Basilashvili at 2.06 with 888 I see Kiki better now. Pavy has played 3 matches in 2019 and she has lost against Vera Lapko and Kudermetova. Kiki won against Pera and Putintseva in straight sets and lost against Barty in a 3 set match in Sydney. Pavy serve is one of her biggest weakness so I expect a lot of BP for Kiki (Kiki is serving so well). Both players won their first rounds in straight sets but Kiki had to face a player in a good form (Riske) while Pavy faced a player in a bad shape (Monica Puig). Schwartzman and Basilashvili are better than their oponents. Yoshihito Nishioka (+2.5 Sets) against Kharen Khachanov at 1.67 with 888 Nishioka is playing well. She won against Kubler, Christian Garín, Ryan Harrison and Rublev in Sidney and he finally lost against Schwartzman in a 3 set match. He had a tough opponent in the first round, Tennys Sandgren. Sandgren was playing so well (won all his matches in Auckland in straight sets: Marterer, Cecchinato, Mayer, Kohls and Norrie) but Nishioka beat him in 4 sets. Khachanov had an easier match (Gojowczyk) but lost the first set and looks like he’s not in his best physically.

    Fulham v Tottenham What a huge opportunity for Fulham today. If Spurs have one glaring weakness, it is the lack of depth in the squad. Today missing both Kane and Son, with no like for like replacements. For me Son is a bigger miss than Kane. He has been brilliant. The man has a huge engine (in a league of big engines), and can run really hard for an entire match. It is what a defender hates ... A guy that keeps upping the ante, increasing the pressure, and who eventually runs them into the ground. It has a duel effect in opening space up for Kane. WHo in the SPurs lineup can step up and fill the gap? Look out for a shock today. DOn't think there will be too many goals here, and Fulham may walk away with a shock win.

Susan Gardner's admirably consistent brown gelding comes here in top form following wins both here and at Leicester in December,before finishing an excellent 3rd over today's course and distance(well backed) earlier in the month.With several of these having questions to answer,he looks the one to beat.. 2.20 Exeter CATCHIN TIME - 3/1 Skybet With several of these either disappointing or out of form,this looks an excellent opportunity for CATCHIN TIME to finally get on the scoresheet. The selection has been running well of late without managing to get his head in front,indeed has finished in the first four places in all seven runs this season.

    Be careful with this one mate, Napoli are without CB Koulibaly, DM Allan, CM Hamsik and FW Insigne - all key players. Napoli are still looking strong on key goal metrics and that is why I cannot really bring myself to back Lazio +0.50 AH here. Given the circumstances I do not like Napoli to win at odds on, they are too short given all their absences in my view. Game has become very dicey and is best avoided in my humble opinion.

    Non-League Predictions > January 19th

    I can endorse Darran's view about Kidderminster. There is no logical or sane reason why their price would have shortened. Their so-called marquee signing, Dan Bradley, has been bought back by Fylde. The only replacement is a loanee who failed to get into Brackley's team. Kidderminster are threadbare. Their decent loanee, George Waring, has departed, so their only forwards are Joe Ironside (recently returned from a loan spell at York where he couldn't make the starting XI) and Ashley Chambers who currently couldn't hit a barn, let alone a barn door. The only other striker, Kane Richards, has a three match ban for man-handling the referee last week. They have no manager - owner, football agent and chairman, Colin Gordon, has taken over the role aided and abetted by over-the-hill journeymen players Russ Penn and Jimmy O'Connor. They will struggle to fill the bench and have no players who can come on and make any impact. All things being equal, Telford should win at a canter - although this league is a nightmare to predict this season. Caveat emptor!

    K.Nishikori/P.Carreno-Busta - Over 3.5 sets at 2.00 with Bet365 PCB did disappoint me big time in the first round, but he has improved since then, while Nishikori has produced just one reasonably good performance and should've been gone against both Majchrzak and Karlovic. PCB doesn't have the serve of those two guys, but he has a better groundgame than all three guys Nishikori has faced so far and I fancy him to really take the fight to Nishikori. I was expecting the overs to be set at 1.72 here, so 2.00 looks like value to me.

    Muguruza does look opposable from certain points of view, but I'd just like to say that I watched her match against Konta and that it was a really good one with a lot of splendid hitting and without any of the big errors that you typically see in WTA matches. If she plays on the same level, I'm not sure what Timea will be able to do.

    Crystal Palace as big as 18 to win at Liverpool. They beat Man City not so long ago away from home at similar odds... Palace have been a bit of a bogey side for Liverpool, with the infamous 3-3 draw a few years ago, and Palace have actually won at Anfield 3 out of the last 5 PL fixtures. I doubt there is another PL team with that good a recent record in going to Liverpool and getting a result. Saying that, I don't expect Palace to win, but I think the price is too big. For perspective, Brighton (similar ability to Palace IMO) are only 13s to win at Man Utd with their well known terrible away form. I don't think i'm brave enough to take a punt on Palace outright, but maybe on a +2 handicap, as I can seem them keeping it competitive.

    Rafael Nadal -6 games @ 2.03 Pinnacle 10/10 This is the first 10/10 bet for me this year i think. Nadal should cruise to a win here, Berdych looks decent but the matchup is simply a horror right now for the Bird and i do expect at least one set where he collapses. I 100% agree with CP here in terms of the outcome, i had this in mind since both won their matches today but i wanted to wait till Asian bookmakers publishing odds as i can't bet as those books like Marathon and all the other 10 Euro books.

    Wow Sabalenka got destroyed. I didn't think Anisimova could keep up consistency but if she is going to keep playing like that she could create more upsets.

    Naomi Osaka (-1.5 sets) to beat Su-Wei Hsieh at 1.80 with Unibet Hsieh has all the tricks, but they rarely work against raw power and Osaka is bashing the ball very cleanly at the moment. Unless she goes missing terribly, she should just blow Hsieh off the court without giving her enough time to work the angles and all those other nonsenses.

    I know Popyrin is a rookie here but anyone see value in taking him Vs Thiem.I know everyone here had Paire to one up him, me included but I sniff a small chance at an upset.His last year match ups beating Ebden Paire and McDonald(who I consider descent) at Swiss Indoors last year was quite something.Beating Mischa was good but not good enough to rank him here but I'm taking a chance here

    Milos Raonic to beat Stan Wawrinka at 1.53 with William Hill Raonic has been right on the mark since the start of the season, while Wawrinka is still visibly struggling. I also don't trust Stan to last five sets if it comes to that.

    Pierre-Hughes Herbert +1.5 set to beat Hyeon Chung at 1.70 with beteasy PHH played well vs Querrey in the previous round and since the beginning of the season in general. Very good double player but could also be worth more than his current 55 rank in singles Chung is struggling to play his tennis from last year (early loss against Statham etc and 5 sets to beat Klahn) PHH won their only encounter (Wimbledon in 5 sets) I see this as a close match and good chance to go 5 sets or a win for the Frenchman.

    Dayana Yastremska to beat Carla Suarez-Navarro at 1.62 with Pinnacle CSN has been poor since the start of the season, Yastremska is talented enough to take advantage of it, both better and more experienced than Burel, who gave CSN a good fight despite being nervous.

    I.Karlovic/K.Nishikori - Over 36.5 games at 1.82 with Pinnacle Obviously Karlovic is an aging force etc. etc., but Nishikori was just dreadful in the first round. He wasn't reading serves at all, he was getting punished for everything, and who knows what would've happened without his opponent falling apart physically. Karlovic can keep this close imo, the conditions are fast enough for him.

    Early bet: Hsieh @2,02 (Marathonbet) The bookies really don't know who is the favourite in this one. The odds are changing a lot now. For me, Hsieh is the better player of the two. A win against Azarenka in the first round doesn't change my opinion on that.

    Enough shoving for things to come to a push this week! (That sounded funnier in my head.) The 6th yellow came close to the end of 90 minutes and we got through extra time without the bet becoming a loser. 10 winners and 3 pushes from 19 bets, 4.13 points up with an ROI of 22.97% to advised stakes 3.13 points up with an ROI of 16.49% to level stakes.

    Tennis Tips - January 14 - February 3

    There is no topic for this weeks challenger so i will use that one. Challenger Koblenz Michal Przysiezny @ 1.854 Pinnacle 5/10 Przysiezny only played 8 matches in 2018, last one in April but he had a very good pre season and is in really good shape and i expect him to play a good tournament here in Koblenz where he had some success in 2017 winning four matches in a row. Przysiezny also worked as a training partner for Caroline Wozniacki in the second half of 2018 and also trained with her as a prep for the new season so he wasn't far away from the sports although he didn't play officially. I expect a strong performance here as he said his goal is to come back Top 200 soon and if he is fit he definitely has the tools to do so. His opponent Barranco is a clay only player, he NEVER played on indoor hardcourt before, one tournament on indoor carpet in Italy last year where he was defeated by Neuchrist in two clear sets. I do not expect him to some damage here to be honest. Benjamin Hassan @ 2.23 Pinnacle 5/10 This is Benjamin Hassans home tournament. He played great tennis here in the past winning sets vs. Gabashvili and De Schepper and beating Gulbis with a great performance. Hassan is underrated but he needs to play like this the whole year, he usually shows his best tennis at home and i do expect great tennis here. Serdarusic isn't something special on the other side, can't say i am convinced he makes it back to the Top 200 soon, he lacks consistency and i watched his match vs. Griekspoor last week and i am pretty sure if he plays like that he will lose this.
