  1. Alexander Bublik to beat Casper Ruud at 1.83 with Bet365 Ruud has done absolutely nothing indoors so far, so I'm happy to take another Eastern European player in the form of Bublik here. He was very competent during the US Open and it's somewhat hard to trust players that are coming from Davis Cup weekends, so I think that Bublik should be priced at 1.60 or so here.
  2. Well, let's see where the cards are going to fall. Not sure how many more bets I'm going to have over the next couple of days, as I'm traveling a bit, so hopefully someone else is going to pick up the gauntlet!
  3. Feeling rather alone in here . Mikhail Kukushkin to beat Jannik Sinner at 1.66 with Marathonbet Sinner is certainly an up-and-coming player and I do expect big things from him going forward, but this is a tough draw for him given how well Kukushkin usually does in these Eastern European events. He's still classy enough and he needs to start getting ranking points somewhere, so I wouldn't be shocked to see him do a Basilashvili here and go really far in the entire thing.
  4. Yeah, quite ridiculous how she threw it away. No reason to be hanging anywhere though, the season is quite alright.
  5. Yeah, if Linette loses, I'm going to take a break for the weekend. A very slow week after the final Grand Slam and there's no need to throw away the winnings from that tournament just yet. Good luck if you're getting involved and I'm going to be back for Monday (unless something really catches my eye).
  6. Magda Linette to beat Rebecca Peterson at 1.90 with Bet365 Peterson looked rather suspect to me yesterday, plenty of issues with serve and not convincing in the rallies either. Linette is much tougher than Fett right now and her good run hasn't been affected by that loss against Osaka at all, so I can see her continuing with some wins. Of the two, she's the one on the rise currently.
  7. Both Marcora and Zverev with some health issues today, happy to get away with one void.
  8. Shuai Peng (-2.5) to beat Kristyna Pliskova at 1.94 with Pinnacle Pliskova is, in many respects, just a better version of Badosa Gibert, so I'm going to take Peng again and hope that she delivers something similar to the previous round. Pliskova was reasonably solid, but thoroughly unexciting - and Peng is a massive step up in terms of Voegele imo. She should be very motivated after the promising US Open and I can really see her going far if everything clicks.
  9. Aldin Setkic to beat Robert Marcora at 3.68 with Pinnacle Mischa Zverev to beat Denis Istomin at 2.50 with William Hill I watched a bit of the Istanbul Challenger and it seems to me that it could be the ideal tournament for some decent upsets, so I'm picking two players that have already played here to progress even further. Both are facing opponents that are beatable at the present time, as neither has any real form to fall back on, while the H2Hs also make for a reasonable reading for both Setkic and Zverev. If you have no real risk appetite, I suggest you back Setkic to win a set and Zverev to cover the +2.5 games handicap line, which is what I'd usually do here, but I feel a bit of confidence at the moment for some reason, so I'm going for the juicier odds this time around.
  10. Shuai Peng (-3.5) to beat Paula Badosa Gibert at 1.80 with Bet365 Peng has finally started to rediscover her standard level of play and I expect her to be very dangerous during the Asian swing, at least as far as this type of matches is concerned. Gibert has some big shots, but her defense is awful and Peng can defend quite well herself, so, with the extra home conditions motivation thrown in, I wouldn't be shocked to see this become a very one-sided affair.
  11. Yep, I also have the feeling that it's going to be either 3-0 or 3-1 today. Medvedev has been absolutely great so far, but he's faced only larger hitters so far, while Nadal is going to test his fitness to the maximum. Can't see him holding.
  12. Hi and welcome to PL @JohnMLondon! Personally, I'm basing my own predictions predominantly on what I've seen with my own two eyes.
