  1. Re: Tennis: 31st December -8th January Sport Tennis Event Dodig - Soeda Selection Over 21.5 Strength 10/10 Date 04/01/2012 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.88 Reasoning Over is the best choice in this game, I belive it. Line is not too high. Dodig in first round match have big troubles against local player Vardhan, saved 6 match points in this match and won in three sets. Serve helped Dodig many times. Go Soeda is after Q here and in first round beat Gil in three sets. In last three matches here Soeda played 4 tie-breaks - good server, bad returner. Over 21.5 Sport Tennis Event Cipolla - Tsonga Selection Cipolla +5.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 04/01/2012 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.85 Reasoning Flavio Cipolla can make troubles for Tsonga in this match, I believe it. Cipolla is not bad hard couter, good from the baseline, nice on the serve. In first round beat wild card Mutawa 6-0, 6-0! Tsona yesterday have huge troubles against Malek Jaziri, two tie breaks and won in third set. Cipolla is minimum on the Jaziri level and can make troubles for him. Sport Tennis Event Bachinger - Trociki Selection Over 21.5 Strength 10/10 Date 04/01/2012 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.94 Reasoning Line is good to play, I see chances for the over here. Matthias Bachinger is big sevrer from Germany, have very good court practise because won Q here and in first round beat gifted Bautista. Troicki in first round played against awful on hard courts Lukas Rosol and won 7-6, 6-4. If Rosol can play close match, Bachinger for sure too.
  2. Re: Tennis: 31st December -8th January Sport Tennis Event Hanescu - Raonic Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 04/01/2012 Bookmaker/Price Titanbet @ 1.85 Reasoning Over look like good bet for this match. Chennai surface is really fast and this is advantage for big servers. Hanescu in past beat Raonic, but Raonic today is other player. In first round Hanescu beat Querrey in straight sets and must feel confident. Raonic have on of the biggest serve in tour and is not easy to broken. Over 22.5 is my prediction. Sport Tennis Event Sela - Paire Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 04/01/2012 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.96 Reasoning I see three sets here. Dudi Sela is good hard couter, in first round have lucky draw because played against injured Fognini and lost only one game in this match. Benoit Paire is gifted player and can be very strong in future, in first round here not give any chances for other young player - Pere Riba from Spain. I feel easy over
  3. Re: England > Midweek > Barclays Premier League > 20-22 December Sport Football (England - Prem) Event Blakcburn - Bolton Selection Over 1.25(Half Time ) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price 188bet @ 2.30 Reasoning Very important match for both side. Both teams want take three points. Two the worst team in league, Bolton is on the last position with 9 points, but Blackburn have only one point more and have home advantage before this match. Two the worst defense in league, Blackburn concended 23, Bolton 22 goals in last 10 league matches. Offense power in both teams are not bad. Blakcburn without three important defenders tonight, must try play offense football against Bolton. Sport Football (England - Prem) Event Wolves - Norwich Selection Over 1.25(Half Time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price 188bet @ 2.31 Reasoning The same story like in match Blackburn-Bolton, but here both teams are in better situation in table. Wolves is in relegation zone, but this is good chance to be higher in table after this match. Wolves at home always played open football, 11:15 goals balance in 8 league matches at home. Norwich have really good offense, but defense sometimes looked terrible. In last 10 league matches Norwich scored 18, but concended 21 goals. Two goals in first half are very possible.
  4. Re: Copa del Rey Sport Football (Spain) Event Sevilla - San Roque Selection Over 1.5(Half Time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price Unibet @ 2.35 Reasoning First match end with 1-0 win for Sevilla. Sevilla is after big lost at home against Real Madrid in Saturday and players for sure want play good for the supporters. Sevilla coach take this match very seriously and want make win with many goals difference. San Roque not have nothing to loss, want score goals here, in first round not be very bad or something like that. I see fast match and 2 goals in first half.
  5. Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December Sport Football (Germany) Event Bochum - Bayern Selection Over 1.5(Half Time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price 188bet @ 2.30 Reasoning The same story like in match Dusseldord-Borussia. Bayern take seriously this cup and for sure go for the big win against poor Bochum. Bayern have top players in squad and for example Gomez can be too strong for Bochum defenders. For Bochum this is big match, possible the biggest of this season and players are very motivated to score goals against big team from Munich. Sport Football (Germany) Event Dusseldorf - Dortmund Selection Over 1.5(Half Time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price William Hill @ 2.75 Reasoning Dortmund is in fantastic form, especially Lewandowski at the front. Borussia for sure can score two goals in half time, with players like Kagawa, Gotze or Lewandowski. Germany teams always take seriously this cup. Dusseldorf is team who play always very open football, not think about defense too much and for sure is very motivated to beat strong Borussia. I see huge value in this odds.
  6. Re: Irish Leagues & Cups 2011 Sport Football (N.Ireland) Event Coleraine - Glenotran Selection Coleraine Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price William Hill @ 2.80 Reasoning I see very good value in this odds, Coleraine have more chances for three points than WH think. Coleraine in this moment is in very good form, won 4 of last 5 league matches, in last round beat Cliftonville on away after very good match. Players want conitnue this very good streak in this match. Glenotrant is out of form, 2 losts in last thre matches. In last round lost 0:2 at home against Portadown, players can't feel good after lost in this style. Last home match for Coleraine against Glenotran end with 3:1 for hosts. Sport Football (N.Ireland) Event Linfield - Lisburn Selection Over 3.5 Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 2.25 Reasoning Linfield in this moment is leader of the table, 17 wins in 21 matches, the strongest team in league. Fantastric streak with 6 wins in a row. Lisburn is the worst team in league, lost 8 of last 10 league matches, in last round lost against Carrick Rangers, but lead after half time. Last three matches in a row end with minimum 4 goals. On away Linfield won 3:2, I can image next big result and I take 2.25 in Paddy Power for Over 3.5 Sport Football (N.Ireland) Event Carrick Rangers - Portadown Selection Portadown(Half time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bwin @ 1.85 Reasoning I see easy win for guests in this game, but any value in 1x2 odds. Portadown won 6 of last 7 league matches in a row, very hot streak. In last round show great stuff and not give any chances for Donegal, 5-2. Last away match won against Glenotran, without too much troubles 2:0. Carrick Rangers in last round broken bad streak, but against the worst team in league Lisburn, today possible back on the 'normal' track. At home Portadown won 3:0
  7. Sport Football (Spain) Event Espanyol - Celta Vigo Selection Espanyol(Half time) (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price William Hill @ 2.50 Reasoning First match end with the draw 0:0. Espanyol in this moment is in very good form, fantastic win at home against Atletico Madrid 4:2 and the best match of the season for this team against Gijon on away. Morale in team must be very high. Espanyol won this Cup few years ago and take seriously this match. Celta Vigo is nothing special, Segunda Division in this moment, in this moment for sure is worse than Espanyol and I don't see too much chances on the hot ground. Espanyol can lead for half time.
  8. Re: Tennis - 31 October - 6 November Sport Tennis Event Seppi - Nishikori Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Stan James @ 2.00 Reasoning Over 22.5 is the best option for this match. Nishikori played in first round agaisnt Berdych, won in three sets, show very good service stats. Lost only one serve game. Seppi played against Muller, too concended only one serve game in match and won in three sets. Both are in TOP50 in this moment, but out of the TOP30. This is close match up, without clear favourite. Sport Tennis Event Wawrinka - Haase Selection Over 21.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Stan James @ 1.91 Reasoning Over is the best option in this game. Robin Haase is 40 players in the ranking, one of the strongest serve. In first round concended only one service game against home player Chiudinelli. Haase not played on the highest level, in this match, with higher motivation can be very dangerous. Wawrinka beat Dodig in two sets, but Dodig is not in the best form at the moment. Wawrinka serving very good. Wawrinka is big favourite, but this is not easy match for him. Sport Tennis Event Djokovic - Kubot Selection Under 18.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 1.91 Reasoning Djokovic defending final from last year in this tournament. Novak in first round played against big server from Belgium Malisse and won in three sets, match been close because Xavier serving really good. Kubot yesterday played against Kamke, won in three sets, but give 26 break points for the rival!!! Kamke converted only 5. If Lukasz keep this 'level' against Djokovic, I don't see any chances for him. 6-2, 6-3 Sport Tennis Event Monaco - Fognini Selection Over 21.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Stan James @ 1.91 Reasoning In previous season Monaco played at Indian Wells hard courts against Fognini and match end with 22 games exactly. Monaco in first round played against injured Nicolas Almagro and take win in this match after three close sets. Fognini too played against home player in first round, against Daniel Gimeno-Traver and take comfortable straight sets win. Serving good. Monaco is favourite, but this is not easy match for him. Sport Tennis Event Cilic - Granollers Selection Over 20.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bwin @ 1.75 Reasoning Bwin show too low line and I mustplay it. Last match in h2h, at Chennai courts in previous season been very close - 6:7, 6:3, 6:4 for Cilic. Granollers in first round won 6:3, 6:4 against TOP20 Dolgopolov, Granollers hold all service games in this match. Cilic won 6:4, 6:4 against big server Raonic, too hold all service games in match. I see minimum 21 games in this match. Sport Tennis Event Anderson - Del Potro Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 2.00 Reasoning Over is the best option here. Both players are in very good form. Anderson in first round played against gifted Martin Kilzan and won 6-1, 6-4. 9 aces for RPA player in this match. Del Potro in first round played against experience Dimitry Tursunov and won 6-4, 6-1. 10 aces for Argentinian player in this match. Valencia surface have high bounce and this is advantage for Anderson. Three sets Sport Tennis Event Ljubicic - Mayer Selection Ljubicic Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Betsafe @ 1.87 Reasoning In my opinion Ljubicic take win in this match I watched Ljubicic in first match here against Llodra and played very well - the biggest weapon serve been very hot, give one break points for French player, but save it. Llodra is big server, but Croatian player broken him two times. Mayer won first round match by Tipsarevic retiretment - 5:1 in first set, but Florian made only 33% first serve in court, not good stats before matcha against Ljubicic. Sport Tennis Event Tsonga - Querrey Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 03/11/2011 Bookmaker/Price Stan James @ 1.91 Reasoning For me Over is the best option here. Querrey before injury been one of the best server in the tour. In last weeks backing to the best form. In first round played against Ernests Gulbis and been totally untouchable on the serve. Tsonga in first round played against young, local player Marti, won in three sets, but looked tired. Of course Jo have great serve and this match can be very close.
  9. Re: Tennis - 31 October - 6 November Sport Tennis Event Shabaz-Millot Selection Shabaz +2.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 1/10 Date 31/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Nordicbet @ 1.60 Reasoning 23:45 Charlottesville in USA, hard surface Very low stake for this bet, because I'm not Challanger master. Don't have too big experience in betting on this level. Michale Schabaz take wild card in this tournament and this is not big suprise for me, for sure. Few weeks ago in Tulsa CH Schabaz show nice tennis, beat Ouellette in two sets and lost after close match against Querrey 7-5, 7-5. Schabaz serve looking nice. Schabaz in last year in Charlottesville go to the FINAL! Won 3 matches in Q and beat great players like Lapentti, Harrison, Nishikori, Guccione - lost in final against Kendrick. Vincent Millot is small favourite in bookies opinion, but for me can lose this match. In last match lost 1-6, 3-6 against Bautista. Not looked strong.
  10. Re: Tennis - 24-30 October Sport Tennis Event Bubka - Cilic Selection Bubka +5.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 25/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.91 Reasoning In my opinion Bubka have good chances to make close match against Cilic. Bubka played in Q before this main draw match, show very hot stuff on the serve in all matches, not concended a single set. First serve been very hard to touch. Bubka must feel very confident if serve working on the highest level. This is the biggest weapon him. Big motivation before match against famous Cilic. Marin Cilic always have troubles against big server and in my opinion can win this match with style 6-4, 6-4 / 7-6, 6-3 or something. This line is too high
  11. Re: Tennis - 24-30 October Sport Tennis Event Bedene - Karlovic Selection Bedene +4.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 25/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 1.83 Reasoning For me Bedene can make big troubles for Karlovic, too high line. Bedene won Q here and broken TOP200 level, the best career moment for this guy. Beat two players from TOP100 - Gimeno and Robert, both in two sets. In both matches not concended a single serve game, not give a single break point for rivals. Very hot stuff on the serve, this is future TOP100 player. Karlovic like Karlovic - big serve and waiting for the tie-breaks, is worse player from the baseline than Bedene and I don't see too many break points for Ivo(if take bp here..). Really close match!
  12. Re: Tennis - 24-30 October Sport Tennis Event Haider-Maurer - Anderson Selection Haider-Maurer +4.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 24/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Victor Chandler @ 1.85 Reasoning For me Andreas Haider-Maurer have good chances to win this match with +4.5 games margin. Andreas is home player, supporters give extra fire for him. Haider-Maurer in last year here go to the Final, I can't image big lost in first round in this year. In last weekend made 16 aces in match against Riba in Moscow, on the faster surface in Vienna can be unbreakable. Anderson can feel tired, many tournaments in last months. Anderson is not the best returner on the world and this is chance for Austrian player. GO AHM!
  13. Re: Tennis - 24-30 October Sport Tennis Event Starace - Nedelko Selection Under 20.5 Strength 10/10 Date 24/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Unibet @ 1.75 Reasoning For me Starace take easy win in this match, too high line. Potito Starace is experience TOP100 player. Very good serve and really consistent player from the baseline. Too consistent against players from Nedelko level. Nedelko is out of the TOP350 in this moment, this guy never been in TOP350. This is not ATP level. Take wild card here, but this is very friendly card, nothing more. Really lucky draw for Staraca, can't miss it.
  14. Re: Tennis 17-23 Oct Sport Tennis Event Ramos - Tursunov Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.05 Reasoning Look like a three sets match. Ramos in last weeks find very good form, is very dangerous player not only on clay surface. Close match against Almagro or Dolgpolov are good for him. Nice serve. Tursunov is experience, local player with big serve, if have good day can be unbreakable for the everyone. Dimtry motivation must be high here. I see close match, for Tursunov. Sport Tennis Event Mannarino - Dodig Selection Over 22 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning Too low line. Adrian Mannarino is very gifted player, few months ago been in TOP50, concended top form, but this is dangerous player to beat. Many good matches on this surface and classy serve. Dodig is favourite here, but not made too many good results in last time. Serve is the biggest weapon for her, nothing more in this moment. Dodig can win this, but in straight sets. Sport Tennis Event Garcia Lopez - Anderson Selection Over 22 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning In bookies opinion Anderson is big favourite of this match, but for me no. Guillermo can find good serve stats on surface like this, in this season been in QF at Zagreb courts and in previous season won tournament in Bangkok. Anderson is big server, but don't have big experience on Indoor hard courts tournaments and can be problem for him. Anderson play many TBs, why not today? Sport Tennis Event Rochus - Blake Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning Too low line, I think about 23/23.5 here. Both players are very experience, both players feel very good on surface like here. Both are in very good form, Rochus played in Rennes Final on Indoor hard surface, Blake played in Final at Sacremento hard courts. Both serving very good and on this surface I don't see many break points. Match without clear winner, close game. Sport Tennis Event Malisse - Nalbandian Selection Over 21 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning Too low line for sure Two very experience indoor hard players. Nalbandian in last time showing better form than Xavier, but Malisse is big server and can't be easy to beat on this surface. Nalbandian sometimes making awful service games and for me can't win this match in straight sets. Two close, or three sets here. Upset is possible, too Sport Tennis Event Lajovic - Bogomolov Selection Over 19.5 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bwin @ 1.85 Reasoning Too low line. Lajovic is young, gifted player who played in Q here, won three matches in good style, yesterday beat TOP100 Istomin in three sets. Show big serve here. Bogomolov is favourite here, but I don't see trash here or something. Don't have match practice and can have small problems with timing on this surface. Bogmolov in 3 Sport Tennis Event Baghdatis - Raonic Selection Over 23 Strength 10/10 Date 18/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.90 Reasoning Too low line for this bet. Indoor Hard surface in Stockholm is really fast, I don't see too man y break points. Baghdatis in last wekend played three sets against the hottest player in this momet Andy Murray. Raonic in previous weekend show great serve power against Llodra and Ferrer. Made many aces. I see close three sets, TBs or something are possible
  15. Re: Tennis 09-16 October Sport Tennis Event Roddick - Ferrer Selection Roddick +2 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 14/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning I don't understand why Ferrer is favourite here. At US Open too peaoples playing really confident on the Ferrer win, but Roddick take win in 4 sets. Roddick in first two matches against Lu and Dimitrov not looked great, but yesterday against Almagro show very classy tennis, lost only 8 balls on the serve. Great stuff. Ferrer have big troubles against big server Raonic, yesterday played against Ferrero and take very lucky win in three sets, saved 3 match points. If Roddick keep serve level can make win here. Sport Tennis Event Scheepers - Stosur Selection Scheepers +5.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 14/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.85 Reasoning I see good chances for Scheepers here. Chanelle leading 1-0 in h2h before this game. Both players are seed, Stosur with number one, Scheepers with 7. Stosur in first round concended set against poor Lertcheewakarn. Yesterday beat Doi without problems, but Doi been awful. Scheepers in first round not give any chances for Kudryavtseva, yesterday beat in three close sets in-form Shvedova. Not easy match for Samantha Sport Tennis Event Tanasugarn - Kerber Selection Tanasugarn +5.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 14/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 1.85 Reasoning For me Tanasugarn can make good result in this match. Osaka city this is Tanasugarn place, for sure. Tamarine in last season here take title and really want defend this points, very imporant for her ranking. In first two matches Tanasugarn played very well - beat TOP50 McHale in two sets and in two sets beat Johansson. Kerber of course is favourite of this match, US Open SFinalist from this year, but in first two rounds played against poor opponent, both out of TOP 140. First hard opponent, I see problems. Sport Tennis Event Lopez - Mayer Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 14/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.90 Reasoning For me three sets are possible here. Lopez of course this is big server and can hold many serve games in this match, no doubts in this. Lopez yesterday totally out hit on service games TOP10 player Tomas Berdych and if keep this level I don't see too many break points for Mayer. Mayer is in very hot form, on the serve too. Yesterday made the biggest win in career against Rafael Nadal - won 7:6, 6:3 and not concended a single serve game, not give any break points for Nadal. Mayer in 3 sets
  16. Re: Tennis 09-16 October Sport Tennis Event Mayer - Nadal Selection Mayer +5.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 13/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Unibet @ 2.05 Reasoning For me Florian Mayer can win 7 games in this match. Florian Mayer is world number 22 in this moment and have very good form. In first round here played against 39 on the world Fognini and lost only 2 games in this match, in second round won against dangerous David Nalbandian 6-3, 6-4. In two matches Florian cocnended only one serve game. Nadal of course is big favourite here, yesterday take easy win against Garcia-Lopez 6-2, 6-3, but Garcia-Lopez played awful match - 8 double faults. Mayer is one class stronger. 6-4, 7-5 for Nadal Sport Tennis Event Tomic - Dolgopolov Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 13/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning In my opinion three sets here are very propably. Tomic in this year played against Dolgopolov at Sydnery court, won first set in TB, but lost next two. Today is stronger.. Bernard in this tournament been underdog - against Andersona and Fish and two times taking wins in three set matches. Serving very well. Dolgopolov too played two close matches, first two very close sets against Kubot and yesterday three sets against Ramos. I see 2-1 win for Alex Sport Tennis Event Ferrero - Ferrer Selection Over 21.5 Strength 10/10 Date 13/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.85 Reasoning I see three sets here, possible for Ferrer. Ferrer of course is favourite this match, but Ferrero is in really good form in this moment. Yesterday Juan Carlos Ferrero beat other Spain player Fernando Verdasco in three sets. Mosquito looked very good in many parts of this match. Ferrer yesterday played two really close sets against Milos Raonic, won 7-5, 7-6. 8 matches in h2h and only one end with under. Sport Tennis Event Giraldo - Nishikori Selection Over 22.5 Strength 10/10 Date 13/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning I play over here, three sets are possible. One match in h2h, at Roland Garros 2010, with amazing Nishikori comeback from 0-2 to 3-2 sets win. Both players in this moment are in very good form, for sure. Giraldo ysterday beat TOP20 player from Austria Jurgen Melzer, in three very close sets. Nishikori made bigger upset, beat TOP10 Tsonga in three very close sets. Kei looked very strong. Match without favourite, three sets for Kei in my opinion Sport Tennis Event Ebden - Simon Selection Ebden +4.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 13/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Unibet @ 1.95 Reasoning In my opinion have good chances to win this match with +4.5 games margin. Ok, Simon first round result on the paper look very good(6-1, 6-1 win against Montanes), but for me Albert is awful on hard courts and played with injury. Ebden have the best run in career in this moment, big mentall power. Won Q here and two matches in main draw, not concended a single set - beat three TOP100 players. Concended only 2 serve games in 4 matches Sport Tennis Event Roddick - Almagro Selection Over 23 Strength 10/10 Date 13/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.00 Reasoning Three sets in this match are very possible. Roddick is favourite of this match, but have worse ranking in this moment than Almagro. Almagro in previous round played against Tommy Robredo, but take comfortable win in two sets. Almagro hold 100% service games and look good on this fast surface. Roddick played two matches here, first played three sets against Yen-Hsun Lu, next played two really close sets against Dimitrov - 7:6, 7:5. This match can be harder.. Three sets for Andy
  17. Re: Tennis 09-16 October Sport Tennis Event Broady-Martic Selection Broady Strength 10/10 Date 10/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price 5Dimes @ 3.80 Reasoning In this pick I based on motivation and similar form. Martic is from 1991, Broady from 1990. Martic is in TOP100, but Broady is for sure TOP100 material. Martic is seed number one in Q and can lose in this match, can take LL spot(Sorana Cirstea too). Broady have big motivation, big chance for this girl to take main draw tournament. In previous matches destroy TOP100 Rus and beat in two close sets former TOP30 Wozniak. Broady is great bet
  18. Re: Tennis 09-16 October Sport Tennis Event Kudryavtseva - Scheepers Selection Kudryavtseva +4.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 10/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.90 Reasoning In my opinion this line is a gift from bookies. Kudryavtseva is real TOP75 level and is underranked in this moment. Alla before this match leading 3-1 on hard courts in h2h against Scheepers. Scheepers in previous week in Bejing not looked very strong, looked tired. Kudryavtseva is fresh, since Tashkend (SF and retired, unlucky) in last week played first tournament. Kudryavtseva for sure can take one set here and beat HC line.
  19. Re: Tennis 09-16 October Sport Tennis Event Tanasugarn - McHale Selection Tanasugarn Strength 10/10 Date 10/10/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 3.96 Reasoning I based in this pick on the big Tanasugarn motivation. One of the biggest value odds for today matches. Tanasugarn in last season played in this tournament and in every match been underdog(small or big, like today) and go to the Final, where beat local hero Kimiko Date Krumm. Tamarine want make next good run here, defending many points.. McHale in last tournaments not playing great like few mon ths ago and this is good chance for Thailand player to make upset. Tamarine Tanasugarn in three sets.

Re: Tennis - The US Open 2011 Sport Tennis Event Bubka-Tsonga Selection Bubka +8.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 01/09/2011 Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 2.20 Reasoning I see troubles for Tsonga in this game, Bubka is not easy match up in this moment. Ukrainian player won Q here and in yesterday first round match beat Andreas Haider-Maurer from Austria in 4 sets. Bubka serve looked amazing - 25 aces, concended only one serve game! Tsonga beat Lu 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. In this moment Bubka is be able to beat Lu and I see more troubles for Jo-Wilfried than this match against Yen-Hsun. Tsonga win it, but after close match.
  21. Re: Tennis - The US Open 2011 Sport Tennis Event Radwanska - Radwanska Selection Over 18.5 Strength 10/10 Date 29/08/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bwin @ 1.85 Reasoning Wow, what a low line. Radwanskas sisters on the court. Both girls in last US Open losing in second round, both have points to defend. H2H before this match is 1:1. Agnieszka is in very hot form, candidate for the big result at this tournament. Urszula won Q, all matches in straight sets. In my opinion three sets for Agnieszka!
  22. Re: Tennis - The US Open 2011 Sport Tennis Event Rodionova - Kudryavtseva Selection Rodionova -1.5 sets (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 29/08/2011 Bookmaker/Price 188bet @ 2.40 Reasoning In my opinion Anastasia win this match in two sets. Rodionova have better career balance on hard courts and is in better form in this moment than Kudryavtseva, who won one game in last match against Scheepers. Kudryavtseva have awful record at US Open - 5 starts and 5 losts. Rodionova in 2009 go to the third round, in last season go to the second round, where lost against Stosur. Rodionova take this match in two sets in my opinion.
  23. Re: Tennis - The US Open 2011 Sport Tennis Event Falconi - Zakopalova Selection Falconi Strength 10/10 Date 29/08/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.40 Reasoning I see Irina win here, very good odds. Irina made big progress in this season, in this moment is the best ranked in career - 77 position. Take SF in WTA tournament few weeks ago, on hard courts. Lost against Petrova 1-2. Zakopalova is totally out of from in last time and don't feel good on hard courts. In US Open played 8 times and never go to the second round. Zakopalova can't be favourite in this match..
  24. Re: Tennis - The US Open 2011 Sport Tennis Event Sharapova - Watson Selection Over 16.5 Strength 10/10 Date 29/08/2011 Bookmaker/Price Unibet @ 1.75 Reasoning Maria propably win this match in two sets, but can be close match than this line want show for bettors. Sharapova is title candidate. No doubts, who is favourite and who go to the next round. You can put house on Maria. Watson is former US Open junior champion. Watson skills are very good for the New York courts. Both players with similar style of play, both from Bolliettieri tennis academy.
  25. Re: Tennis - The US Open 2011 Sport Tennis Event Hradecka - Bondarenko Selection Over 20.5 Strength 10/10 Date 29/08/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.85 Reasoning I see three sets here. I don't understand why Bondarenko is that big favourite in this game. Ok, take SF in last weekend in Dallas, but top players not played/ or tanked at this tournament. Hradecka is big server, played very good match against Williams two weeks ago and can hold many serve games. At US Open have bad balance, but in this moment play the best tennis of career. I see three sets here, maybe for Bondarenko, but three sets.
