  1. Daniil Medvedev to beat Karen Kachanov at 2.00 with William Hill Nothing much to say here. Both players are playing well but Medvedev is actually doing better than Karen. Brilliant display from Daniil in Winstom-Salem and Tokyo while Karen did nothing remarkable in the last weeks. If nothing escapes me I think that at these odds all the value is on Medvedev.
  2. Fabio won the 1st set and was leading the 2nd one 2-1 when Chung has retired. The bet in bet365 is considered void so definitely this is not my week. Anyway I will post the other bet I had on my mind for today (probably my last one for this week). Ernests Gulbis to beat Jack Sock at 1.73 with William Hill What can I say about Sock? He’s absolutely out of form and has no confidence. The last time he won 2 consecutive matches was in 2017 in the ATP Finals. He defends a lot of points at this end of the season so we will see him going out of the top 100. He suffered a lot against Elias Ylmer (7-5, 3-6, 6-3) in the 1st round. Gulbis comes from the qualy (winning against Benneteau and Eriksson in straight sets). He won against Mikael Ymer (6-4, 6-3) in the 1st round and Shapovalov (6-2, 6-4) in the 2nd one so he has won all his matches in straight sets. Gulbis is playing solid (0 breaks conceded against Ymer and Shapovalov) so I see him winning here against Sock.
  3. Fabio Fognini to beat Hyeong Chung at 2.20 with bet365 I’m a little bit surprised by these odds (don’t know exactly If there is something that escapes me or the odds are just these because Fabio’s mentality). Fabio did semifinals here the last year (she lost against Dimitrov). He did a good Asian Tour, reaching final in Chengdu and semifinal in Beijing (he won against Bemelmans, Ebden, Fritz, Albot, Rublev and Fuscovics). The Asian Tour of Chung has been horrible, winning only 1 match (Hurcackz). He lost in the 1st round in Chengdu against Felix Auger-Aliassime, in the 1st round in Tokyo against Shapovalov and in the 2nd round in Shanghai against Cecchinato. I have to recognize that he played very well in the first two rounds, winning against Fritz and Kudla in straight sets. Anyway, Fognini has more experience and has been playing very well the last weeks so at these odds I think that there is value on him.
  4. Well, Halep has officially anounced today that she will not be in Singapore for her back problems. Obviously, Sloane had no intentions of winning that match against Jabeur (unnecessary for her). Actually, im thinking in a theory involving Kiki and Pliskova. I think that both players knew that Halep would not play in Singapore for her back problems, and they knew that just before their respective matches in Moscow against Zvonariova and Sasnovich. Sloane, Kiki and Pliskova inscribed in this tournament to secure a place in Singapore. Well, all of them have lost in the first round but they all have a place for Singapore…
  5. Bad start for me so I post these 2 bets and If they gone wrong I will take a rest because I don’t like the tournaments played in this week (every year we have strange matches and results here probably because is the end of the season and don’t know which players have considered that their season is over). Alex de Minaur (-2,5) to beat Philipp Kohlschreiber at 1.90 with bet365 Nothing much to say here. Philipp has not played a match since the US Open while Alex has won against Sugita, Mackenzie Mcdonald, Dzumhur, Gilles Simon, Pospisil and Benoit Paire in the Asian Tour. Karolina Pliskova + Kiki Bertens at 2.14 with betfair Both players are playing for a place in the WTA Finals in Singapore. Halep, Kerber, Wozniacki, Osaka, Kvitova and Stephens are classified so there are 2 more places that will be disputed by Pliskova (3840), Bertens (3710) and Svitolina (3850). The opponent of Karo will be Zvonariova while Bertens will face Sasnovich. Absolutely important matches for Karo and Kiki so I expect a good performance from them.
  6. If you are looking for big emotions you have the Kremlin Cup, traditionally known for being a tournament with very “strange” matches and a lot of big upsets.
  7. Andrea Petkovic to beat Alison Van Uytvanck at 2.00 with bet365 I don't know what makes Alison favourite here. She did semifinal in Linz so she did a good tournament there but before that she was in a 7 losing streak. Petkovic also did semifinal in Linz and i prefer her at these odds.
  8. Anna Kalinskaya to beat Kristina Mladenovic at 3.00 with bet365 Anna knows the feeling of winning a top player (she did beat Caroline Garcia in straight sets the last year in Kuala Lumpur) and this year has played the final draw of the AO (beating Zvonariova, Boserup and Kherkhove in the qualy) and the US Open (beating Grace Min, Mandy Minella and Brengle in the qualy). In the US Open she did lost in the 1st round against Julia Gorges but she took a set from her (6-2, 6-7, 6-2). She was born in Moscow so I expect a big motivation from her. Mladenovic is the favourite and has more experience but considering that she’s not playing her best tennis Im looking for an upset here. Taylor Fritz to beat Hyeong Chung at 2.00 with bet365 Based only in the results of this Asian Tour. Fritz has won 6 matches (Chun-hsin, Kukushkin, Querrey, Zeballos, Klizan and Haase) while Chung has won only 1 match (Hurkacz).
  9. I only could saw the second set. So close... A lot of breaks but that was expected
  10. Daria Kasatkina to beat Lesia Tsurenko at 1.66 with bet365 Final bet for me. I have to say that I’m not convinced with actual form of Kasatkina but there are some interesting reasons to go with this one. Daria did beat Tsurenko in straight sets (6-4, 7-5) just 3 weeks ago in Wuhan. Daria has points to defend (she did final here the last year losing against Julia Gorges). Considering that is played in Moscow the crowd obviously will be with Daria. The negative part is that she retired from China, but that was for a gastrointestinal illness 2 weeks ago so I expect that she will be fine for this one.
  11. Garbiñe Muguruza (-5,5) to beat Stefanie Vogele at 1.80 with bet365 Vogele looks like the kind of player that Mugu easily destroys. She lost in Linz in the 1st round against Johanna Larsson in 3 sets, in Tashkent in the 1st round against Potapova in 3 sets, in Korea in the 2nd round against Su-Wei Hsieh (6-2, 6-1) and lost by a double 6-0 against Mónica Puig in the US Open in the 1st round. I have found an interesting fact about Garbiñe, the last 8 matches that she has won in hard courts covered this line: Sara Sorribes (6-3, 6-1), Ana Bogdan (6-2, 6-1), Kumkhum (6-2, 7-5), Makarova (6-0, 6-4), Golubic (6-0, 6-1), Van Uytvanck (6-4, 6-0), Bencic (6-2, 6-4) and Shuai Zhang (6-3, 6-0). Considiring all this I think this line can be covered.
  12. Mackenzie Mcdonald to beat Nicolas Jarry at 2.00 with bet365 Mackenzie impressed me taking the first set against Bautista in Shanghai (and he won Raonic in the previous round). I saw him serving well and holding long rallies against Roberto. Im not impressed by the victory of Jarry against Cilic in Shanghai. I saw that match and Cilic absolutely dominated Jarry (he won because Cilic did one of the most epic disconnections I ever seen on him). Leonardo Mayer to beat Vasek Pospisil at 2.10 with bet365 Pospisil is favourite here because Mayer suffered an injury in the US Open and has just played 2 matches since that. In the first one he was destroyed by Berrettini in straight sets but in the second one he won a set against Gasquet who actually is playing very well. I don’t like Pospisil at all and the point here is if Mayer is 100% recovered. If he does I see him better than Vasek (I think he does because he won 1 set against an in-form player like Gasquet 1 week ago). Both players have good serve but Mayer should be better on rallies. Frances Tiafoe + Vera Lapko at 1.92 with bet365 Feliciano is playing the last matches of his career. Tiafoe feels good in this kind of surface and he’s not mathematically qualified for the Next Gen Finals in Milan so I expect from him a good performance. Carina is the defending champion here but she’s actually in a bad form. Lapko is playing better (she won against Bencic in Linz and almost won against Pavlyuchenkova). Like I said, Carina is the actual champion here but I don’t care because she’s not doing well actually. Lapko is a big hitter and I think that Carina can’t contain her power. The main reason why Mackenzie and Mayer are not favourites here is because bookies are not sure about if they are 100% well physically, so be careful (personally i think that one of them at least has to win)
  13. Yeah is what im saying mate, the value is on Coric. But at the same time the most probably thing to happen is Novak winning 2-0.
  14. I think Novak is gonna win in straight sets (he plays in an another league actually), but there is no value in him at these ods.
  15. Nice shot mate, put some money on there. Definitely Roger is not gonna win any more Grand Slam, even i think he can't win any Masters 1000. Maybe some more 500 but nothing higher i believe. Borna has absolutely dominated him and the result should have been more comfortable for Coric for what we have seen today. Camila have won in straight sets, the second one took her a lot of match points but finally she did. Probably no more bets to me for this week, i will check the matches (qualys)... Lets see.
