  1. Musetti - Nishikori I don't buy the odds offered by bookers. 1.79 for Musetti against 2.02 for Nishikori.... Yes, the guy won against Mayer (didn't watch the game) and Wawrinka (who either felt bad or was not interested in that game. Other than that he played agains average players in the last months (lost some games against average players as well... Altmaier, Alcaraz). On the other side we have Nishikori, who did not play for a long time. Lost his first clay game against Kecmanovic (winning 1 set) and than won against Ramos in Rome. I think that Nishikori has a good trend, having a first win on clay, and has much more experience. My guess is that tomorrow the odds will inverse. 2.02 Unibet on Nishikori.
  2. Don't think the odds on Carreno Busta (2.38 unibet) are appropriate. Both played pretty good so far. Shapo had stronger opponents, that's sure but Busta played great against Djokovic and was close to take first set if no... The head-to-head is 3:1 for Pablo as well. For me it's more a 50/50 game. What do you guys think about this game?
  3. How the hell a woman comes back to tennis after a few years of no play and does not make a sound, a scream, nothing... and the opponents shout out all what they have... That woman seems to be on steroids.
  4. Tiafoe seems on fire and Fucsovic lacks precision and concentration
  5. Coric reborn after 1:5 in the 4th set and beat Tsitsipas :)))) So, not only Mladenovic is capable of that.
  6. Muguruza - today's bomba numero uno. Who else?
  7. Trying the 1st banker with Krajinovic to beat Giron at 1.10 Unibet. Let's see if Krajinovic delivers as he should.
  8. Hey guys. Looking for 1-2 bankers for today's matches. Advices from those who has watched any of the players below would be great. Here is my pool to extract from: Norrie to bean Coria ~1.08 Goffin to beat Harris ~1.16 Zverev to beat Nakashima ~1.20 Struff to bean Mmoh ~1.22 Carreno Busta to beat Krueger ~1.16 Putintseva to beat Lapko ~1.12 Kvitova to beat Kozlova ~1.12
  9. To come back after 4:6 4:5 and win is something. Krajinovic seemed to be everywhere and still....
  10. @liquidglass I’ve watched a little bit of “Sabalenka” and she outplayed herself with a lot of double errors and unforced errors. Wouldn’t put that on Pegula. Anyway, let’s see how it will go.
  11. Anything but a clear win of Mertens over Pegula would surprise me. Pegula played 2 more matches in quallies so Mertens will be fresher. The quality is on her side as well. I think that odds on Mertens should be lower than 1.4 @unibet
  12. Yes @Torque, you a right. This guys trained, being young, under the bombardments in the capital of Serbia. I don't think anything can scare such people :)))
  13. Kontaveit seems so have put herself a target to spoil all last decisive shots...
  14. Cocciaretto reminds me of Andreescu. Same powerful “beefy” constitution. Same trials to catch her losing because she played against better ranked players but she continued and continued.... In my opinion this time the opponent is powerful as well. And more precise. So, I am with Kontaveit as well.
  15. Pliskova seems to have placed a bet against herself
  16. Everything according to the odds so far today. 2 more Italian players to go. Are we going to have upsets tonight? I think no. Any ideas?
  17. Today's Vondrousova is yesterday's Kasatkina... if someone watched both matches....
  18. Good picks @darko08, however, I've watched the game of Lajovic against Martinez and Lajovic was not so bad. He was just relaxed and did not push the gas pedal so much. And that was his first game on clay in this season. For me odds should be closer to an even pair. @2.62 for Lajovic seems too much. After all, according to statistics, Lajovic is not so bad on clay. Update: @darko08 meanwhile a good start from Ruud
  19. Any opinions on Carreno Busta - Sinner? I like Busta @1.8. Sinner is good now but Busta is good as well and his experience, and mental stability should make a difference.
  20. Very strange game by Krainovic at the end of second set. He was walking around between points so energically but, at the same time didn’t fight for reachable balls almost at all and did so many mistakes. He took it in the end against tired Pospisil but I would not rely on Kraj in the next round.
  21. Hey guys, I'm looking for a big stake banker for this night. Have a couple in mind, so I'll choose some of them: Schwartzman to beat Davidovic-Fokina @1.16 Lajovic to beat Polmans @1.28 Barty to beat Peterson Hercog @1.12 Keys to beat Rus @1.07 What is your mind about these pair? Do you know/have anything in mind (besides surprise factor) that could interfere? Otherwise, do you see other "bankers" for the 3rd day? Thanks in advance. P.S. Also, Dimitrov looks pretty good to me for a even higher price of around @1.33
  22. Polmans - Kukushkin. Kukushkin to win at ~1.5 unibet. Does anyone see the reasons why the odds on Kukushkin have risen from 1.3x to 1.5 ? He is a much more experienced player and hist 2019 run on hard courts is 51%. On the other side Polmans has played almost only challenger events. If there are no health issues on his side, I think the odds on the Kazah guy should be much lower, so 1.5 looks great in this context.
  23. And here goes a friendly present from Medvedev to Zverev. In that situation, them both being in good relations, it would be strange if both of them went home. Now... Nadal goes home. Life is just not correct sometimes. Nadal really gave it all this week.
