  1. I've seen just one match so far in Istanbul and the conditions look pretty quick. A bit surprised that there have been just two tie-breaks so far, really.
  2. It will go ahead I reckon. But some clouds hanging over the preparation events now.
  3. Well, Korda did almost choke the match away, it's a shame that Norrie threw in his worst performance of the tournament in that encounter. Hurkacz is the more experienced of the two and that might very well be the factor to decide the match. No recommendations from my side.
  4. It's worth noting that there will be a break after today and that we'll get only one Challenger tournament in the upcoming week (unless I'm missing something).
  5. Cameron Norrie to beat Sebastian Korda at 2.21 with Pinnacle I'm not quite sure what makes Norrie the underdog in this one, I think that it's 50/50 at worst for the Brit. Korda did beat Isner, but that doesn't count for THAT much nowadays and this will be a different match-up, closer to the one with Paul where he struggled big time on occasions. Norrie looked incredible in patches against Tiafoe and had only a few bad patches of play. Everything above evens is worth taking imo.
  6. I'd definitely rather be on the over than on the under, but, as you've mentioned, Hurkacz is by far the better player. I can see him winning by several breaks if he's on, though Harrison has a good enough serve to keep in tight and that's why I'd stay away. Not only that, but he also has the right mindset and is having the event of his life.
  7. @darko08 Didn't get to see the first set, but Alves had chances in the second. Even with the result, I think he was a bit underrated and shouldn't have been as high as 5.75 in places. About 3.75 perhaps. I'm pretty sure I'm going to back him on clay at some point.
  8. Hi and welcome to the forum @Olymp! No, I do not grade my bets on the forums, but I can tell you that the last season was losing after a few profitable ones. Is there any data point you'd like to see or is that actually a dig haha?
  9. Well, remember how Ostapenko won the French Open and then didn't get much for quite some time? 🤣
  10. Veronika Kudermetova to beat Marta Kostyuk at 1.61 with Bet365 Fully agree with @darko08 here, even 1.61 is value, I'd go for something like 1.50 or even a tad lower as fair odds. She's been great so far in this season and is a level above Kostyuk in most regards. Unless she runs out of stamina, she'll win this comfortably.
  11. Yep, Korda needed a treatment in the first set, carried a tape from then on. His movement didn't look limited, though, so perhaps that won't be much of an issue. I'd look for how the first games go to get a better grasp.
  12. Yeah that looks like something that could easily happen @AgaRadwanska, Kostyuk is quite prone to self-destructing, very little consistency and it sounds like she had it easy against Zidansek. 2.75 is something I wouldn't be afraid of honestly, there should be at least a slice of value there.
  13. Felipe Meligeni Rodrigues Alves (+5) to beat Tomas Machac at 1.97 with Pinnacle I suppose that most mainstream tennis fans are yet to hear about Alves, but I saw him a couple of times last year and he's a decent prospect. He even took a set off Thiem back in February and he had a tremendous end to the year, as he won the Sao Paulo Challenger before losing in the semis of the Campinas Challenger. In the qualifiers, he's already managed to dispatch Klizan 6-1 6-4 and I wouldn't make him such a big underdog against Machac. Machac is better than Alves on hard courts, no doubt about that, but
  14. Alright, it's time for us all to move onto the second week of the season! Good luck!
  15. Tamara Zidansek (+3.5) to beat Marta Kostyuk at 1.88 with Pinnacle Alright, I definitel like this one. I've alread backed Zidansek once this week and I'm not afraid of doing it again, especially since she's now had a day off to rest. Kostyuk was nothing special against Hsieh and, even though she's talented, she's not playing consistently well enough to warrant this sort of price. With the line at +3.5 games, I'm more than happy to grab a bite.
  16. Korda against Paul certainly looks a bit overrish to me. I'm glad that Svitolina had no issues and I'll go through the odds for tomorrow a bit later.
  17. Don't like anything specific for tomorrow given the lack of info. I'll be rooting for Svitolina to come through for the double though!
  18. I posted Fognini above @vladisimo2, other than that it's hard to tell in what forms the players will show up. Rubin doesn't look half bad on paper, but it's the first match for him and Quiroz has already played two good matches in the qualifying against decent players. I'm just going to watch and root for Fognini.
  19. I've gone through all three tournaments today and it's hard to find a good bet honestly. Elina Svitolina against Vera Zvonareva and Fabio Fognini against Michael Vrbensky are the two favorites that I like at decent enough odds, they are a level above honestly, though I understand upsets can happen this early in the season. Fognini has been disappointing recently, but come on, Vrbensky can be really poor on most days and the odds are huge for this sort of match-up. It can be a banana slip, but I'll go for Svitolina (vs. Zvonareva) + Fognini (vs. Vrbensky) at 1.90 with Bet365. I also though
  20. Yeah, that definitely makes sense. Kwon is slightly better on paper, but the situational factors all speak for Korda. Not sure I'm over the moon about the odds, but I'd much rather be on Korda there. Home conditions, better form and way more potential than Kwon overall.
  21. @K8a As has already been stated, the match was cancelled. Ferro has probably withdrawn from the event. I'll probably just watch tomorrow with so little info available. TennisTV should have Delray Beach streams if anyone's interested, I don't have any info about streams for Antalya. It's a bit upsetting that TennisTV won't have that by the looks of things.
  22. Seems like the first week could be pretty wild, certainly didn't see Kontaveit losing so tamely.
