    There's also a possibility but in this case it is small I don't believe there is any value right now. He is currently an impenetrable fortress right now - wait until the later rounds when he will play the better players.

    Yeah, definitely Haas. Kiki is 10 points behind Pliskova in the Race to Singapore. Huge level of motivation to go as far as possible in these last two tournaments that she is playing.
  3. Tennis Tips - October 1 - October 7

    Shapovalov to beat Chung at 1.67 with SportingBet I'm quite flummoxed by the price here, as Chung has not been the same player since his injury. He's been going out early in all tournaments since his return, while Shapovalov has been playing relatively well recently. Khachanov to beat Querrey at 1.60 with SportingBet Khachanov had a good run in the US Open, giving Nadal a good run for his money. He did lose to Warwrinka in St. Petersburg, although this was in two tie-breaks. I was initially impressed with Querrey earlier this week, but his loss to the one-dimensional Taylor Fritz suggests he is not at the level he needs to be to beat Khachanov, who will offer a much sterner test than Fritz did.

    How did Fognini lose that tie break from 6-3 up?
  5. Tennis Tips - September 10 - September 16

    Spain to beat France at 2.62 with SportingBet Yes, Spain is missing Nadal, but both Bautista-Agust and Busta are solid players. Also, France is missing their main doubles pair of Mahut and Herbert, so I think Spain has a better chance than the odds suggest.
  6. US Open 2018

    Kei Nishikori to beat Marin Cilic at 2.35 with SportingBet Think the unexpectedly long game that Cilic experienced with De Minaur might be a factor here. Having watched the last two Nishikori games, I've been very impressed with his game. He has only dropped one set thus far, and was dominant against an in-form Kohlschreiber. I feel that Nishikori will be able to give Cilic a greater challenge than Goffin, who was apparently somewhat injured before the game actually started, so the 3-0 scoreline probably flatters Cilic a bit.
  7. US Open 2018

    Have to say, I think Pella is going to win this.
  8. US Open 2018

    Milos Raonic vs Stan Wawrinka - Wawrinka to win @ 2.10 with SportingBet I'm surprised to see Wawrinka as the underdog here. Yes, Raonic has won their last two clashes (the last one in the Australian Open, 2016), but they are now both coming back from injury and I will be happy to back the "Stan train" here. The way he easily won against Dimitrov was great.
  9. US Open 2018 As far as I know, same prices as the UK parent (also called SportingBet, I believe).
  10. US Open 2018

    Mikhail Kukushkin (+5.5) vs Hyeon Chung @ 1.90 with SportingBet Since coming back from injury, Chung has not impressed me greatly. He is very weak on serve and was, in my opinion, lucky to win against Berankis, who was in a position to take 2-0 sets lead. Kukushkin was more impressive against Rubin, so I'm happy to take the handicap here.
  11. US Open 2018

    Nikoloz Basilashvili to beat Jack Sock @ 2.6 with Sportingbet Given Jack Sock's awful record this year, I'm not sure anyone can really be confident in backing him.
  12. US Open 2018

    Hehe, I'm actually considering Tsitsipas to win his quarter. A sensational talent!
  13. US Open 2018

    Hmmm...I'd be worried opposing Stephens. She usually picks it up on the big stage (final French Open) and will probably be a little more motivated since it's in her home country. But good luck all the same.
  14. US Open 2018

    US Open - Men Winner - Rafael Nadal @ 4.00 with SportingBet.
  15. Tennis Tips - August 20 - August 26

    Probably strategic in relation to the US Open.
