  1. Pella to beat Giron @1.43 unibet Pella is a player with clay pedigree. 2020 was a bad year for him and 2021 did not start in the best possible way either. However, looking back in 2019, we can see that he can play very, very well on clay. In the last match he overpassed Gallan Riveros, who had himself a good season so far. I’ll take that as a sign that he is ready and prepared for the next match. Giron does not seem, according to results, to bloom on clay. He’s got very few wins over clay courters (Andujar and Monteiro). Not saying that 1.43 is a big value. Just thinking
  2. I have a feeling that Pouille might produce an upset today by beating Cuevas. He can be good on clay and is 8 years younger than 35 years old Cuevas. 2.95 for Pouille seems too much for me and definitely there is value here.
  3. What do you thing, guys, about the first win of Medvedev at FO? I know it's not his surface but Bublik is not a clay courter, neither. I'm think that the overall better "class" of Medveded will help him edge this. Also, Bublik might get frustrated with the russian's game style. Just thinking that 1.4 - 1.5 is a good price for the world's number 2.
  4. Hey guys. Advice needed. In your opinion, regardless of the odds, who has better chances? Korda to beat Nishioka (Parma clay) or Lajovic to beat Andrej (Belgrade clay)? I'd prefer Lajovic because of playing in his native country on his "native" surface and because of a long losing strike on clay lately. He might be hungry of getting some wins. Regarding Korda - Nishioka. American has better results on clay overall but Nishioka is able to cause some upsets as well.
  5. Cilic to beat Borges Nuno at 1.52 with Unibet Cilic succeeded to pass over Alcaraz yesterday, being considered an underdog. He persevered in the 3rd set after losing the 2nd 1:6. That is important and shows that he has interest in staying in this tournament. Borges seems to love clay and has won many games in challengers/ITFs. He even suceeded to beat Thompson and Carballes Baena. Will he have all it takes to beat Cilic? I don't think so.
  6. Don't get why bookers offer ~2.2 on the win of Thompson over Borges Nuno. Well, I get that clay is not the favourite surface of Thompson, but, still, Borges Nuno has played only in challengers so far and is 331 ATP. Have no clue if Thompson will be motivated to stay in the tournament for at least a couple of games but, as preparation for Madrid, Rome... he might put some effort.
  7. What do you think guys about Auger Aliassime against Musetti? Having more quality overall + having Toni Nadal as coach + having learned (I hope) some lessons from the match against Garin....
  8. I hope he drops in rating asap so that no tournament accepts him without qualification
  9. I've read that Still, Miami and Acapulco have passed. This is another tournament (closer to his home). He has won a few doubles. Even if he said that a few weeks ago, I expect him to want to start winning once. Otherwise, he will drop soon so low, that no tournaments will invite him any more and no money will be available to collect. Obviously, no bankers on this game
  10. Barcelona ATP Paire to beat Gaio @1.78 unibet Having won a few games in doubles (with Mannarino) to qualify to main draw, I hope there will be motivation for Paire to play. 5:0 for him in first round of Barcelona ATP. 1 win over Gaio in 2015 (not so important). Former semifinalist. This guy is a joke and unpredictable but even such players, knowing their talent, have to start to win from time to time. IMHO, it’s a good moment and place.
  11. It looks like you've put some money on Rafa :)))))
  12. Fognini navigated so smooth in this tournament so far, that I think he's got a good chance against Ruud @2.10 unibet. I think he will level a little bit their H2H.
  13. Tsitsipas to beat Davidovich-Fokina seems a good banker @1.22 unibet
  14. Agree. Logic should be the primary reason. Illogical outcomes are rather exceptions than normality.
  15. No logic but you got both matches to go to third set. Hala Rublev! Hala Carreno-Busta!
  16. Well... if a game should go 3 sets, I hope it's Carreno-Busta's one
  17. Rublev is extremely good. If he continues like this, only Nadal will be able to stop him in Paris.
  18. Let's hope both Rublev and Carreno-Busta are just slow starters :)))
  19. Regardless of the odds, what do you think guys is a better bet? Carreno-Busta to beat Ruud or Rublev to beat Bautista-Agut ? I fancy a lot Carreno-Busta. This guy does not excel in any particular part of the game but he is so good in rallies, once the ball is in the game, that very few players can keep pace in his good days. And he seems to be in his good days. This is my "soul" pick. On the other side, my "rational" pick is Rublev who is fresher than Bautista-Agut, enjoys clay and took over on their only one clay clash. P.S. Anyone, who watched Ruud. Was he so
