  1. Cilic to beat Thiem at 1.85 with SportingBet I keep this simple and sweet. Cilic played quite well last week against eventual runner-up, Danii Medvedev, in Washington. He should prove a stern challenge to Thiem, who was looking rather shaky to the very out-of-form Shapovalov.
  2. Medvedev to win ATP Washington @ 4.50 Should have been on this yesterday before he played Tiafoe (I think you could get 8.0) but I think Medvedev has a good chance here. He's playing Cilic tonight, who has been in bad form this year and then either Edmund/Gojowczyk in the SF. Then he probably faces Tsitsipas/Kyrgios in the final. Kyrgios is looking dangerous in the top half of the draw but I never bet on NK since he is so temperamental (and a disgrace to tennis).
  3. Are you not worried by his historically bad form in this tournament? It almost feels like a trap 😛
  4. Rafael Nadal to beat Roger Federer @ 1.68 From reports that I have read, the courts are playing slower than usual, which has and will benefit Nadal. Besides Kyrgios, Nadal has more-or-less demolished his opponents, including the big server Sam Querrey, who is not bad on grass. On the other hand, Federer has had a few lapses, losing a set each to Harris and Nishikori. A better player than Nishikori (i.e. Nadal) could have won that QF I reckon. Based on the form in this tournament, I reckon Nadal is in a better shape than Federer.
  5. 5 out of their last 22 matches have gone the distance (5 sets).
  6. Bautista Agut (-5.5) v Pella @ 1.65 with SportingBet Bautista-Agut has somewhat slipped under the radar at this tournament. He has not dropped a set this tournament and has breezed through to the quarter-finals. His opponent, Guido Pella, came back from 2-0 against Raonic and might be feeling the effects of a 5-setter. In addition, Bautista-Agut has a 2-0 against Pella, and in many of the sets he won against Pella, he won 6-1 or 6-0.
  7. Just saw this story re Kyrgios - suggests he is not that serious: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7211273/Nick-Kyrgios-spends-night-PUB-prepares-Rafael-Nadal-Wimbledon-showdown.html
  8. Probably Basilashvili just because Ward is so low on the rankings but Basilashvili isn't that good on grass.
  9. I'm personally on Thompson due to reasons outlined here. Thompson really isn't that bad and the temperamental nature of Nick will always mean there is a chance for an upset.
  10. According to www.flashscore.com, Serena is playing Gatto-Monticone of Italy in the first round and Kvitova is playing Jabeur.
  11. Kecmanovic to beat Thompson - 2.40 with Sportingbet I've been greatly impressed with how Kecmanovic has played in this tournament- he hasn't dropped a set yet. He also beat Thompson in 2018 (although on a hard court).
  12. The obvious reason for the high odds around Paire is because of the inherent uncertainty about how long he wants to stay in the tournament given the grand slam next week. Also it's Paire, who is quite a temperamental player.
  13. FAA v Lopez (Queens) - over 23.5 games at 1.83 with Sportingbet Simple reasoning here: both have strong serves so I feel we will definitely have at least one TB here. Although FAA is of course the better player, Lopez has held his serve a high percentage of the time. I doubt Lopez will break FAA's serve.
  14. But Djokovic did leave the court - both yesterday and today - without seemingly consulting the umpire. I mean yesterday Thiem was still on the court when Djokovic had left. Obviously this is slightly separate from calling off the match yesterday, but it's still shocking sportmanship. He did again today at 40-40 on his serve today.
  15. I don't know - Konta at least had some form going into the FO - a final in Rome. But I guess as always is whether she can maintain her level that she did against Stephens....but her opponent in the SF is probably easier for Konta than Stephens in the sense that Stephens is a proven 'big stage' player. Also Konta beat this opponent in Rome. However as @darko08 said, the WTA side is so unpredictable, who really knows...
