  1. Yeah, thought the odds were kind of the wrong way round given Fognini's pedigree on hard. Took the bet in the end, happy it paid off.
  2. Tempted by Fognini @ 2.25 but he has played two five-setters. And he is Fognini...but Pella does ply most of his trade on clay. Might wait for an in-play bet.
  3. Cuevas is not really a hardcourt player and he got smashed in the ATP Cup so I'd think that Simon has the definite advantage here.
  4. Anyone have opinions on Riske v Pliskova? I see Pliskova has a perfect H2H record against Riske, but the games have been close. Perhaps the overs is the bet here.
  5. Not sure. Wasn't able to watch Verdasco or Krajinovic yesterday.
  6. Jennifer Brady to beat Maria Sharapova at 2.38 with Betway Brady qualified for WTA Brisbrane with three comprehensive victories in the qualifiers. As we all know, Sharapova was ravaged by injury in 2019 and besides an exhibition match in late 2019 (which she won), there is no real indicator of her current form and I believe Brady is good enough to exploit her lack of match practice.
  7. Thanks. Taken Kenin @ 20.0 and in the other half of the draw Svitolina @ 8.0
  8. The weakness for France is in the singles. Paire and Simon cannot be relied on to perform well from one day to the next, and Monfils did pull out of an invitational event in December citing an injury. Also Pierre Herbert won't be pairing Mahut for the doubles for France.
  9. Outright bet: Spain to win the ATP CUP at 3.95 with BetWay On paper, Spain have the best team, with all of the three players being in the Top 30 (and Rafa does tend to get pumped for team events - see the Davis Cup). They will have no problem topping their group, or beating their opponents in the QF, who won't be a group winner. The winners of group C or F should also not pose too many problems for Spain. They'd then either face Serbia or Russia I think...Spain would prefer to face Russia, given Khachanov's patchy form in 2019, however, even if they face Serbia, Djokovic's abysmal record in doubles in the recent Davis Cup should ensure that Spain are marginal favourites in that match-up.
  10. @CzechPunter - when you have decided on season long bets, do let us know!😉
  11. Yes, strange decision by the Canadian captain as Canada already had won the tie. Perhaps FAA will take one of the singles slots?
  12. This is a general tip for ATP St. Petersburg: I'd oppose both Khachanov and Medvedev, despite the potential for both of them to play well in front of a "home" crowd. Khachanov is miles away from his best (and I saw he became a new father recently) and surely all of Medvedev's tennis will finally catch up with him.
  13. Struff (to win) against Isner - @ 2.10 Simple explanation for this: Since Isner's foot injury, he hasn't been himself, losing early in both Cincinnati and Montreal. Struff, on the other hand, is a player on the up and I've prepared to back him here as the underdog. Yes, Isner does own a 3-0 H2H record, but the last match was in 2016 and Struff will be facing a very different Isner in 2019...
  14. Around 75 matches scheduled for today. Woop Woop.
