  1. Osaka lost to Putintseva just 10 days ago in straight sets. She has declared that she doesn't feel comfortable on grass so that's why she's paid at 1.43. Putintseva W/L record on grass is poor (9-15). I can't give you a %, i will just said to you that Osaka should win this but i also will not be big surprised to see an upset on that match. Sabalenka is the favorite but her game is very aggressive and that means that if she had a bad day she is beatable by any decent player (she lost against Destine Aiava in her first match of the grass season in Bolduque..). She will face a player a tricky player that feels very good on grass (she reached the Semifinals here in 2017). I will said the same here, Sabalenka is the favorite but do not surprise if we have an upset here.. Edmund should win his match considering that Munar has never won an ATP match on grass (0-5). I don't know Kwon but i see Khachanov as one of the potential winners of that quarter so he should win that match. Wozniacki also should win against Sorribes despite her physical problems. Sara is a claycourter with a bad serve so i don't see any upset on that match. I also see Halep winning her match easily. Despite Sasnovich is a tricky player she has lost her 2 grass matches and Halep has won two matches against dangerous in form players (Hsieh and Hercog). Elina Svitolina at 1.1¿? in bet365 is paid at 1.28. Anyway, we have two players in poor form. Svitolina had 2 early byes in her two grass tournaments (Cornet and Gasparyan). Gavrilova at least has won a couple of matches in Eastbourne (Lapko and Golubic). Personally I will not touch this match.
  2. Yeah, there is an upset alert on that match. The problem is that Herbert has not convinced me in his last matches. Anderson is beatable but Herbert need to improve (despite Anderson's form). Guys how you rate the chances of Putintseva to win against Osaka?
  3. Katie Swan to beat Laura Siegemund at 1.90 with bet365 Laura is a pure claycourter. Her W/L record on grass is 5-6 and this will be her first match on grass this season so she comes here without preparation. Katie has a W/L record of 8-17 and she has already played 4 matches on this surface. She only won one of those matches (against Parmentier in straight sets) but the other ones were so close. I was thinking to bet Shelby Rogers (vs Kontaveit) at 3.00 but I'm not sure how she will be physically after retiring in the third set of her last match against Bencic. If she's fit I'm sure she will have high chances for winning this but I will not take the risk. Marcos Giron to beat Feliciano Lopez at 4.00 with William Hill I have to prove this. I think Feli has become absolutely overrated after his wins in Queens. He's 37 years old and i have a lot of doubts that he's body is prepared for 4/5 set matches. Its true that he played so well in Queens but don't forget that he played one less match because Delpo's injury. Giron has already win 3 matches here (De Greef, Hoang and Galovic) dropping only 1 set.
  4. The bet is who's going further in the tournament
  5. I forgot to say something really important. Félix has conceded 0 breaks against Kyrgios, Tsitsipas and Dimitrov. Feliciano serve has been broken 2 times (1 against Raonic and 1 against Fucsovics).
  6. Félix Auger-Aliassime to beat (-1,5 Sets) Feliciano López at 2.10 with 888 This is one of the favorites tournaments of Feliciano but the truth is that he's still here because the opponents he had. In the first round he won against Fucsovics in a 3 set match, in the second round Del Potro retired for an injury and yesterday he won against Raonic in a 3 set match. A few weeks ago i posted here that Felix has the conditions to be do big things on this surface and looks like i was right. He did Final in Stuttgart the last week and here he has won against Kyrgios in 3 sets, Dimitrov in 2 and Tsitsipas also in 2, that's impressive. The only way for Feliciano to win this is serving extremely well and try to surprise Félix in the TB. The problem for Feli is that Félix is absolutely hungry for winning his first ATP tournament and looks like he has a huge chance here after losing the Final in Stuttgart the last week. I can't imagine Feliciano breaking Félix serve (his serve is working extremely well and his return is also better than Feliciano) and I expect Feliciano conceding some BP.
  7. You are talking like is strange to see Ostapenko doing a lot of DF? Come on guys, just 2 weeks ago she did 17 DF against Azarenka in 2 sets, this is her biggest weakness and thats not something new on her. Anyway, it's impressive the difference between how she started that match and the way she ended it. Playing like she did at the start of the match and in her previous 2 rounds here she will be able to beat any player.
  8. Petra Martic to beat Jelena Ostapenko at 1.94 with Marathonbet I will go against the general opinion here. I think Ostapenko will not maintain the level of playing that she had against Konta. Martic is player with a lot of variety and that can frustrate Ostapenko. Krystina Pliskova +10,5 Games (vs Strycova) at 1.57 with bet365 Krystina is on a 5 winning streak (Sofia Zhuk, Pegula, Bouzkova, Tomova and Karolina Pliskova) and her serve is working so well. I think this match is a flip coin but this but this bet can be won even with a 2-0 for Strycova (if we have tight sets). Julia Gorges to beat Putintseva at 1.61 with Marathonbet Not impressed with the win of Putintseva against Osaka (I see her so mentally weak since Sascha Bajin and her broke their professional relationship. Putintseva will struggle on every game on serve so if Gorges is accurate with her serve she will have a big advantage against her.
  9. Konta (vs. Ostapenko) + Kenin (vs. Jabeur) at 1.81 with William Hill Nothing much to say here. Im not impressed with the victory of Ostapenko against Swiatek. I see Konta too much solid for her. I saw Jabeur against Kudermetova in Rosmalen and her game was as poor as her results of the last 8 months. I see Kenin so much better right now.
  10. Sorry @CzechPunter, english is not my native language and sometimes I do not express correctly my thoughts. What i tried to say is that Bublik is one of the most irregular players of the Top 100.
  11. Bublik is the most suspicious player (edited) of the top 100, by far. Be careful with him for the next time.
  12. Thanks mate. I know Berrettini is playing really well but giving him a 1.45 is absolutely exaggerated. This match can be decided by TB's considering how good are serving both players (Felix served 30 Aces against Brown and 15 against Simon in 2 sets).
  13. Félix Auger-Aliassime to beat Matteo Berrettini at 2.75 with bet365 I took Félix in the last round but Raonic retired because he was not at his best physically. Now we have Félix priced almost at 3.00 again so I think the value is on him. Both players have not too many matches on this surface but their conditions make them very dangerous players here (aggressive players with good serve). I think the match will be decided by minor details so i prefer the better priced player. Alison Riske to beat Kiki Bertens at 3.06 with Marathonbet Personally i have Riske to win this tournament at 15.00 but i post this one anyway because i think the value is on the american. Kiki is an excelent player but we all know that grass is not her best surface (she has a W/L record of 15-15). She has win against Johanna Larsson (W/L record on grass of 7-19), Arantxa Rus (13-20), Vikhlyantseva (11-10) and Rybakina (5-1) so she had an easy way (Vikhlyantseva and Rybakina have the conditions to play really well on grass but not the experience). Now she will face a player that had more wins on grass than all these players together (Riske W/L record of 72-30 on grass). Riske is on a 9 winning streak and she has win here against Muchova, Hercog, Alexandrova and Kudermetova. I have to say that Riske has a terrible record in Finals (1-6).
  14. WTA is more unpredictable than the ATP and that is a fact. For example, do you know that we have 10 different woman players that have won RG in the last 12 years? We only have 3 male players that have won RG in the last 12 years. During this RG Halep was paid very similar than Nadal to win RG (that is ridicolous considering that Halep has won only 1 GS and Nadal has 18 including 12 RG..). Everytime a GS is coming we all know that the men's title will be disputed by 3 or 4 players but the women's title has become a lottery. Probably this will change when some players take a step but now this is the situation. Obviously im not saying that there are no suprising results in the ATP im just saying that the WTA is more unpredictable than the ATP.
