  1. Tennis Tips - February 11 - February 17

    Medvedev to beat Tsonga at 1.67 with SportingBet Medvedev and Tsonga both have had similar playing schedules in the past 2 weeks or so, however, in my mind, Medvedev cruised to victory in ATP Sofia, while Tsonga, who also won ATP Montpellier, had a bit of a tougher time. Also I believe that Medvedev is a more talented player than Tsonga, so I will be backing him here.
  2. Tennis Tips - February 11 - February 17

    and chokes a lot...I was surprised to see the enthusiasm in here for Verdasco considering what happened last week + Medvedev's sensational form that he is in.
  3. Tennis Tips - February 4 - February 10

    Hehe, yeah. Verdasco lost it mentally near end of second set.
  4. Tennis Tips - February 4 - February 10

    I guess it is possible, and at times Verdasco did look somewhat vulnerable to Copil, however, although he did drop a set, he never looked liked losing the match and beating Copil, who likes indoor hard, is no mean feat either.

    That Tsonga match was draining and nerve wracking at the same time!
  6. Tennis Tips - February 4 - February 10

    Karlovic + Tsonga at 1.89 with SportingBet "Dr. Ivo" has impressed me in the early part of the season, having made the final of ATP Pune (and then only losing in 3 tight sets to Anderson) and going out in 5 sets to Nishikori in the Australian Open. Obviously the court surface favours Karlovic here, and he has a 3-1 H2H record against his opponent. @CzechPunter has already covered the play on Tsonga, so I won't repeat it here.

    Dayana Yastremska to beat Garbine Muguruza at 1.95 with SportingBet I'm a big fan of Ms. Yastremska, and she has deposed of her previous two opponents with relative ease. Obviously Muguruza will be somewhat more of a challenge than her two previous opponents, however, Yastremska beat Muguruza in Luxembourg last year in straight sets (6-2, 6-3) despite having to back up from her win in Hong Kong the previous week.

    True, however, unlike Djokovic, he has not lost a set. He inexplicably lost a set to Shapovalov and was in command of the 2nd set against Medvedev but then lost it in a TB. Djokovic's serve looks quite vulnerable to be quite frank, something that I'm sure Nadal has noticed. Nadal is playing on another level...
  9. Australian Open 2019

    Anyone have comments on the Pliskova/Osaka game? I'm not sure what to make of the Pliskova comeback in all honesty...
  10. Australian Open 2019

    Haha, I put a bet on Kvitova yesterday @5/1 thanks to @darko08. Was still fairly good odds, but obviously the odds have considerably shortened since she won against Barty, so not sure if it is worth it now.
  11. Australian Open 2019

    Yeah, I have little confidence in Svitolina. She's one of those types of players who usually wins multiple titles in smaller tournaments, but if my memory serves me correctly, does not have a Grand Slam pedigree. She's good enough to get to 3R/4R/QF but no further.
  12. Australian Open 2019

    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).
  13. Australian Open 2019

    Do you think fatigue could be a factor given she ended at 3.15am?
  14. Australian Open 2019

    That was unexpected...Bautista-Agut cleaning up Khachanov. Playing two 5-setters was seemingly no handicap...
  15. Australian Open 2019

    Raonic was struggling at the end with an injury. I'd be very cautious in backing him any further.
