  1. Ok, I have to admit that Retardishvili was a bad pick, him being simply awful. Kyrgios was not up to the task with too many sloppy errors at crucial points and shame on Parmentier for not being able to close the first set from 5-2, could have ended differently. The only one who delivered was Davis, still more than nothing πŸ˜‚ For tomorrow I really like Azarenka and Fabbiano with Halep might be slightly injured, and Verdasco as well. The Spaniard is lucky to be here in the 3rd round, but he also had problems with his back and was forced to withdraw from the doubles later. I would definitely play Fabbiano with a bookie who settles tennis bets after 1st ball or 1st set played just in case Verdasco retires. Regarding the rest, I think both Bautista and Goffin have a slight edge, and Opelka might surpise as well because Raonic is far from being 100%. From the women menu Zhang and Golubic might worth a shot, and Collins can take at least a set against the apparently shaky Martic.
  2. Today's potential upset alerts Kyrgios (vs Nadal): match of the day, without a doubt. Here all will depend on how this incredibly talented controversial a**hole will approach the match. If he can keep his calm and focus, if he does not get carried away, with his huge serve and style of play should be better on this surface. Against top class opponents Nick always raises his level, and - especially against Nadal - has his own reasons to perform well. I could highlight the H2H stats and the fact he already beat Nadal here a few years ago, but with Nick you never know... Basilashvili (vs Evans): the current form is definitely on the Brit's side, but come on, there is no way Basilashvili is such an underdog, Evans is not that good. Yepp, the Georgian survived a 5 set thriller against Ward (where I backed Ward to win sets...), but that could well give him the necessary belief and mental power to continue his adventure here. Davis (vs Kerber): here I would take a +5.5 game handicap, for some inexplicable reason I think it won't be an easy match for Kerber. Parmentier (vs Suarez Navarro): Pauline to win at least a set at evens is not a bad option I think, she could well win the match as well. I am not so convinced with Carla despite her straight sets win in the first round against Stosur. And you can call me crazy, but Rublev might also have his chance against Querrey, at least for a set...
  3. Thank you, sir! Another great call! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘
  4. Great call, anyways! I took the set handicap, but I am really sorry for you, this pick really deserved to be a winner...
  5. Nice one! Something similar story was with GarΓ­n/Londero where Londero "had to leave", while Garin preparing against Zverev. Odds were around 1.30, but I took Molchanov/Zelenay for a 2-0 win for 1.85. 6-3 6-4
  6. I'm laying once more Kubot/Melo, this time against Mektic/Zeballos at 2.20 with Betfair. The latter eliminated reputable doubles this week, so should have a good chance against the 6th seeded team who managed to survive all the decisive Russian roulettes so far.
  7. Yepp, and there is a big possibility for a walkover today.
  8. I've backed Djokovic and Fognini to beat Kubot/Melo at these odds. The veteran doubles specialists looked too shaky this week, for me, this is a much closer matchup than the odds suggest, so I'm going for value here.
  9. I know it is easy to talk after a match was already played... For the moment, Hurkacz doesn't possess the weapons to beat Federer, and he must keep his first serve percentage quite high to have a chance. Well, that did not materialize today, the only slight opportunities arose when Roger kind of fell asleep for half minutes. Despite the fact 110 looks a bit far away, after reaching the 100 trophy milestone, the GOAT will try to make the most of every chance if he reaches the later stages of a tournament, so I would rather back than lay him this weekend. Just my two cents.
  10. I agree with this, and for some reason, I was already thinking about backing her in the first round, skipped though. Anyways, would like to see her putting at least two wins in a row to finally believe she is back in the zone
  11. In the end, I skipped backing Mayer for a set against Monfils, but Ramos-Vinolas and Bonaventure both delivered, so it's all good. Back Kyle Edmund + Stan Wawrinka to beat N Jarry, M Fucsovics at evens with Expekt Cannot really see Jarry troubling Edmund here, beating Tiafoe nowadays doesn't look like a big achievement (at least for me). Edmund should be fired up after his last week performances and I expect him to go for even more here. Fucsovics parted ways with his coach a few days ago, but apart from that, I would have still expected Wawrinka to stop his recent good run. I am also thinking about going another round with Johnson (vs Shapovalov), Haase beating Rublev, and Muguruza to take a set against Serena.
  12. I was also looking at Mayer for my usual set handicap, but I'm not completely sure about it. At the moment a much more favored pick for myself is Ramos-Vinolas.
  13. Let me give you my two cents on betting the straight set wins. As you might have noticed, I mostly play underdogs to win a set, but sometimes I also go for the 2-0. It seems to be straightforward to play the -1.5 sets handicap, or 2-0 correct score, but you should take the time and check the odds for the "Under 2.5 sets" market as well. Not so often, but sometimes the odds are very much the same, or at least there is not such a big gap between them. Therefore in case of a complete burnout you are also covered by the underdog winning in straight sets. No offense, just advice!
  14. Well, Pera was serving for the first set at 5-4, then failed to close the tiebreak being 5-2 in front. Unlucky! Johnson and Voegele delivered very easy, but Young was definitely a completely wrong pick.
