  1. Cilic Vs Mayer

    It has to be quite intruguing why Marin Cilic is priced so short against Florian Mayer who really is in very good form and plays very well on grass. Oh! I forgot........that Cilic just....is it won or lost the queeens final, which is an indication that his game is in almost prestine condition backed up by the first round trouncing of Kohlschreiber who really has been missing in action of late. Head to Head stands at 2-2 with Mayer winning their only grass meeting in Wimbledon 2010 in straight sets. All their previous meetings have been very competitive with Mayer always winning a set at least. I think Cilic even with his bullying style of play is too one dimensional and really should not be priced this ridiculously short. With Lopez bombing out early, I see Cilic as vulnerable here. To what extent? Well, to the extent of Mayer definately being capable of winning a set 8/11. the tip is Mayer to win a set 8/11. I will be risking more on over 3.5 sets and Mayer winning too. Good luck!!!

    LOL you call urself a tipster? ur pathetic at best. 

    Whats this whole thing about english?? Don't be a sore loser because you got owned. calling 3 set woz verdict..who the hell are you? show me a screen shot of how much you wagered on woz. Tipping with confidence and then falling flat on your face.  Keep 'tipping" losers.


    Had a bit of your feathers ruffled? Well that is what I do to naughty boys. Spank them with superlatives!! We will see how you do at Wimbledon. You could not have answered a more appropriate name than smoke. Well......... which really kind of clarifies the ontology of your inconsequential existence. I am done with you. Boy!!

    I think its time for you to eat your humble pie mister. not trying to gloat or anything after my win. I had no problem with your post until you said "i dare her to prove me wrong" That statement proved that you made the post about yourself and not the match itself. You call KaPlis's style too passive..what does that make woz's style? strength to strength comparison..KaPlis is better in each and every department. You said woz's knocked out the home girl in her previous match..she struggled against heather watson..a little more mettle by watson and woz was out.


    Not trying to come across as someone who critiques..but when you write something like " i dare to prove me wrong" i have to highlight that you have been.

    Good luck in your next bet

    Well well well, this looks like a freshman class of English 101 which I will be happy to take. You appear not to be too conversant with English phrases and uses especially in relation to translating or understanding in the context it was used.  "I dare her to prove me wrong" is only a figure of speech with no hidden connotations which I have used to back up my opinion. And what is your point on Pliskova?? That she could not possibly be passive because you feel Wozniacki is more passive?. Hahaha!  You cannot be serious!! ( Preferring to borrow the McEnroe special phrase)  So who is more passive? Pliskova or Wozniacki? Wozniacki might be a pusher, but she is a resilient pusher. She chases everything with purpose and is feisty and gritty more like you will see with Radwanska or Svitolina. Both Pliskovas are passive and very lifeless with their tennis. In fact Karoline has only recently just started to show the pumped fist during play. It was the same lifeless play that made Cilic a paper-tiger till he started putting some venom into his emotions . I certainly misread Pliskovas intentions and got it wrong from the angle I viewed it from. However don't you try to attempt to give me an English lesson until you find a defined path to follow. I will be happy to talk tennis with you any day matey! I have always called for a well organised tipping process on here so that we can separate the guessers from tipsters. I guess we are all fine with it being a recreational circus, and that is fine with me, which is why I just stop by these days.

    I think Pliskova will beat Wozniacki as her serve will win her cheap points and she will too good for her on this surface

    I doubt that very much in my opinion. Pliskova is wrongly priced at 8/13 depending on whether that means anything to you . For me it is huge. Secondly Wozniacki leads the h2h 4-1 and looks like she could still conquer Pliskova even on grass. And finally, I do not think Pliskova is as dogged as Wozniacki. Wozniacki looks the hungrier and after taking out the home girl, will be confident to beat Pliskova. Pliskova really is too passive and restrained to even summon up the bottle to win........and I dare her to prove me wrong.  Woz in three. Verdict!!!

    I will take Konta @2.22 against Pliskova.

    Konta is on fire in Eastbourne and I don't expect her to stop today against Pliskova who is struggling on grass since 2 weeks.
    Konta just beat Ostapenko and Kerber. That's a strong performance.

    On the other hand, Pliskova lost against Bellis (!!) last week 6/3 6/2 in Mallorca... And suffered in the last 2 rounds this week against Peng and yesterday against Kuznetsova where she could have lost it. She played a 2hours and 20 minutes game with 235 balls against Kuznetsova...! I expect her to be a little bit tired...

    Konta lost last year in semi final against Pliskova so it's time for the revenge!

    It still remains a very dicey pick which ever player you chose to back for the win.  Betwise this is how I see it. Both of them have very potent and reliable first serves with Pliskova's being the more reliable. It would seem rather unlikely for anyone of them to win without going over 12.5 in total player games. In fact there is a very high chance of both players to go over 12.5 games. I am however siding with Pliskova over 12.5 games 8/11

    Kokkinakis to beat Medvedev @2.37 offered by bet365

    Bet of the month according to my criteria. Kokkinakis is definitely the NEXT BIG THING in tennis world. He reminds me a lot of Djokovic, but with more power than the Serbian ex number one. He looks great in all areas, and mentally is equal to a giant.

    Dont miss it please! 

    Don't miss it? For the excitement or financial returns? I don't know where you have been watching Kokkinakis to think his current form deserves all these superlatives. He has not played much tennis and last time beat a very awful Raonic. The game will mostly be remembered for Raonics sloppiness. Medvedev is no slouch either, he recently beat Kokkinakis rec on grass 6/4 7/6 which gives me an indication that Kokkinakis could possibly play better today and pose much more of a problem, but by no means worthy of the big hype. Medvedev again for me in 3 sets this time.

  7. Berdych vs Shapovalov

    Berdych meets the young explosive Canadian in the London tennis Club championships having lost to three of his last six opponents, and two of three on grass in terms of specifics. I saw Shapovalov play for the first time against Edmund and I have to say that I was highly hopeful about the future of his tennis, that is if he has the head to stay with it. He reminds me of a younger version of Peter Korda with the excellent lefties serve and well programmed backhand. Also good variation of shots during rallies, although brief. Anyone who backed Edmund in the last match and watched it, would have clearly seen that Edmund just seemed like he did not want to be there from the start of play. He played the whole match with no zeal, no confidence and no hope.....unless he backed himself to lose. 

    Shapovalov plays amplified high-risk tennis that can be painful at times to watch. Certainly needs to develop his mental game to live with the very best like Murray who will get tons of balls back in play. The main problem with the Shapovalov game is his consistency on rallying once ball is in play and his return of sgerve where he has to swing at every serve instead of employing the old Victorian blocked-return treatment. Those are still major areas of concern for me why I will not be backing him just yet.

    On the other hand, Berdych is one of the best returners in the game and with his experience should be able to outmanoeuvre the young Canadian with his big ground strokes once ball is in play. The pressure on the berdych returns should force Shapovalov to make a couple more errors on serve. Berdych wins this quite alright. However I will narrow it down to say Berdych to win 2-0 as I expect he will be the safer player with reference to playing tiebreaks which I feel is the only hope of Shapovalov. Good luck!!

  8. I suppose that is the weight that is always on one's shoulders as a tipster. There are no valid excuses for losing. And if a win is a win, then a loss is a loss.  It is still considered a bad tip even if your player had 5match points and still lost or your player was serving for the match at 5-0 and still lost. Not a very positive thing to provide explanations or even discuss an already decided match that now has no potential relevance to the rest of the days play

    Thanasi Kokkinakis to beat Daniil Medvedev at 2.25 with Paddypower

    Thanasi can win this as I believe he is a better player then Daniil who isn't in form either and Thanasi badly needs the ranking points. For Daniil, beating a bad grassplayer as Robin Haase in three sets doesn't count to me. Thanasis win over Mikhail Youzhny doesn't count either since the russian is in really bad form for many months now but what counts is the talent which Thanasi has and I think he's got more talent than Daniil. Thanasi also has come back quite strong by taking a set off Kei Nishikori in RG and he played really well then. As I see it this is a 50/50 matchup so I'm going with the underdog who badly needs every win he can get on his protected ranking.

    Magdalena Rybarikova to beat Alison Riske at 1.66 with Paddypower

    Head-to-head reads 2-0 for Magdalena and form is also on her side. Alison plays only her second match of the season on grass and she will have problems with this in form opponent. Magdalena is 17-1 in her last 18 matches and has only dropped 3 sets along the way. Two of the sets she lost where in her loss to Mariana Duque Mariño in Roland Garros and clay isn't her best surface anyway. 

    Alexandr Dolgopolov to beat Vasek Pospisil at 1.72 with Paddypower

    Alexandr does have more in store for this tournament I believe as he's played well enough to reach a quarter final. He's beaten Vasek before on hard in Acapulco 2014 by 6-2 6-2 and can undoubtly do it again. Even though the surface will give Vasek a good chance to hold his serve until tie-break or break of serve and not get broken back this is a match Alexandr can win even if he drops a set somehow.

    Feliciano Lopez to beat (-1.5 sets) Jeremy Chardy at 2.37 with Paddypower

    They've met once on grass in Eastbourne and that time Feli won in straight sets and he showed here that he's dangerous enough on grass again by beating Gilles Simon by 6-3 6-3. Feli hasn't had any greater season so far but grass is always a surface that can give him momentum and some good ranking points. Hoping for Feli to catch some grassform and to win this in straight sets as it is the most logical bet to be taken even though Jeremy served excellent in his last match against Flo Mayer.

    I just thought it necessary to add what I consider a valuable contribution to your picks as they stand. I am believing that you will add this advice to your bank of experience for future battles. Firstly you need to be aware of the general format of this indulgence to even have a chance of surviving in it. To put it simply, it surpasses intellectual capacities and human wisdom, an indulgence predicated on demonic sequences codes and invincible manipulations not detectable by the mere senses. You will be amazed about some key things that I could reveal to you in 30minutes over a cup of tea that will leave you gobsmacked. I will leave that for now and address the issue at hand.

    Firstly as a matter of good principle, you must never play accumulators that are a mixture of today and tomorrow's games. Such an accumulator is bound to fail 9 times out of 10 for definite. That is one of the greatest manipulations of the game that people fall into so easily because they are not aware of the existence of these supernatural demonic codes in play. For anyone reading who thinks I am just ranting on, how many times in your long indulgence in this game have you won with a last selection to be completed the next day. Answer? Very rare.  How many times do you always lose out by the one selection by what seems a little margin? That happens to everybody(losing by one selection 99%of the times because of these invincible codes in play)

    Another top manipulative strategy has to do with offers. Offers are to enslave and police your thought process. Once you digest it on any level you are hooked. You must learn by default to always accept the first reasonable offer that gives you your money back and any little extra. Any attempt to consider your position on an offer  based on human wisdom is folly and destructive. Your first principle should be always to protect your investment no matter how much. The right choice only comes once to your memory and briefly so, and you always have to be tough and hard-willed to act on it.

    Your first thought to take the initial offer was the right one and I say this with 99% certainty even without the matches played yet. In my opinion it will clearly appear that you have forfeited your chance to make the little profit if you failed to take the offer. I will be totally shocked if your remaining games all make it. Infact where I was initially worried about  Pospisil vs Dolgopolov, I now feel confident on a Pospisil victory having been conversant with these situations too many times. I have chosen that over the  Kokkinakis match, both of which one is primed to give birth to a loser. My pick based on this situation? Pospisil to beat Dolgopolov.   Good luck everyone!!!

    Dont you fancy doing the overs bet as i think Halep will a set

    Hmmm! I sense alarm bells ringing with the overs. Why? Because I really really think this is going to be a very short final. If Ostapenko is going to win as I think and believe she will, then it will be largely because of a mismatch in the clash of styles. I have already pointed to a couple of outside but potent factors that reinforce by belief in an Ostapenko victory. 1. The printout on this forum by Czech which showed us that Ostapenko had already failed in three finals. 2. Pliskova's tweet that talked about her putting all her money on a Halep victory. And if there was ever a more valid superstitious reason, it will be that the last time anybody ever won the French Open as their first professional title was in 1997 and his name was Gustavo Kuerten. And guess what??? He won that title on 8th June 1997, the day Jelena Ostapenko was born.  Kuerten was also 20years old at the time. On the note I rest my case. Good luck everyone!!!

  11. Ostapenko vs Halep

    At last the final is here after two weeks of tennis jamboree. They would seem so hard to separate at first glance, but if anything could be used as a pointer to the possible outcome of this match it would be the odds. If you are one conversant with odds, you will know clearly that the odds set for this match don't just add up considering what we already know of both players. First of all Halep is not really in sublime form. She has played so much tennis over the last week that she almost has nothing left to give as we have seen in her last matches. You can also be rest assured that the brash and fearless Ostapenko will be mounting the sort of assault that will amount to 2 Pliskovas put together against Halep. These players have no head to head to go by so apart from the name Halep and future No1, I really do not see her weak game matching up to Ostapenko even with the advantage of court speed. Halep might just have a long afternoon ball-chasing.

    This is going to be a kind of match similar to the Basinszky game where the destiny of every point will rest on the racket of Ostapenko, because she is going to be residing in the driver's seat for the duration of that final. Halep opened at 1/4 with Ostapenko 11/4 two days ago. Now the bookies seem to have woken up to the danger and moved 12/5   3/10.  Anyone who is familiar with the odds 3/10 will know that it is simply an odd of no confidence; it is one of the bookies widgiboard codes.

    I also like the fearless attitude and easy power in the Ostapenko play that I could not possibly be in my right senses to back against her. Yes, we see players make new records everyday and I believe Ostapenko's will be winning a slam as her first career title. 

    If there was ever anything that gave me total conviction of the winner of this match, it will be firstly the printout by Czech punter showing that Ostapenko had a bad record in finals depicting 0-3. That was further boosted by the Pliskova tweet saying she would put all she had on Halep. She was never going to derail me. In the real sense of things Pliskova should by homeless by the time the match ends tomorrow for certain. My verdict is Ostapenko 2-0.  9/2 and comprehensively so. Good luck all!!!

    A final one-liner at the end of the day. To compare Bacsinszky to Halep is an insult to Simona. ;)

    How embarrassing to lose to a 20-year old like that. Timea had no idea how to put pressure on Ostapenko. 

    I really do not know what you are on about. You sure make a lot of loose sweeping statements. What has age got to do with anything and you talk like Timea is a 35year old woman playing against a twenty year old. It was a three setter and I think Timea played well in light of the fiery aggression from Ostapenko's style of play. How much is Simona really better than Timea?  If you really believe it an insult to compare Timea to Simona, then you should really be a part of the women"s loose talk program on ITV.  Simona has been pretty average in her last two matches and is looking more like a burnt out wilting candle. If you really think Simona will do better than Timea against Ostapenko, then you certainly will be in for a shock. Ostapenko is still going to be the aggressor in that match taking the game to Simona. Such is her aggressive style.  I cannot even see Halep coping with the barrage of misiles coming at her from various angles. Halep was almost out in the last round and could not even convincingly beat a passive Pliskova?? I cannot see past Ostapenko in straight sets. I just have a very strong feeling that Halep may never win a slam.

    Garcia Vs Pliskova

    This is a game very hard to call. Head to Head stands at 2-2 and they have both been average until producing a bit of distinct quality in their last rounds. One other thing to note is that Caroline has won the only meeting between them on clay. However that itself does not tell me anything in women's tennis as we have nothing to particularly analyse that game which in simple terms was a win. These are just some considerations as we try to weigh both players up. Karoline like her sister Kristina can be annoyingly passive with her tennis most times preferring to show no emotion or a will to fight. It was quite impressive how she managed to bail herself out of trouble in her last match in determined style. Garcia can also be a bag of nerves most times and has never played well in front of home crowd in the past. However, there are signs that her game is beginning to come together gradually perhaps for the final assault. Garcia has always been on the distinguished list of players marked out to have the potential to lift this title and I am beginning to believe it. I strongly believe that if she wins this, she should somehow carry that momentum to the final. The one negative which is of great concern. Garcia to win is too popular over the internet and quite worrying. she has already been mentioned three times on this forum which in the past has never been a good sign. The game should last over 21.5 games in total which I deem a much safer bet. Good luck everyone!!!

    The forum double mention jinx barring yet another player from progressing again. Amazing!!!

  14. @ Delfino, congrats but do not get carried away with the joy of your winnings. It is not like we all did not see the game against Djokovic. If the first set of that game is anything to go by, then Nadal still remains a Heavy favourite for the title, and comprehensively so. Good luck anyway!!!

  16. Thiem Vs Djokovic

    This here will appear to be the main course of this year's Mens French Open Tennis tournament having already been treated to a host of appetisers over the last week. The bookies like the vultures are, will always want to find a way to cash in on anything that appears to be a money spinner. The aim here is to try and draw you towards backing Thiem who really has been overpriced to lure in the greedy punter. One thing that really surprised me was the  Opening price of Thiem for this matchup. 15/8 with Djokovic 4/11. I really thought that was a bit gifty considering that Thiem although being a hot prospect in tennis and especially on clay, has not given a hint of even being able to chase the djoker not to talk of catching and overtaking him. Of course most punters will be tempted to take the risk on Thiem believing that he would somehow cut the huge deficit between him and the djoker and come of age. I do not believe it for one minute. Thiem would be good against any player including Nadal, but I do not think that his game matches up well with Djokovic's. I really see Thiem's single backhand being put under a lot of pressure from Djokovic constantly taking the ball early. Value is huge on Djokovic win at 2/5. Also considering the gulf between this two on matchup alone, Thiem having received a bagel in each of the last two meetings with the Djoker, the -4.5 handicap is very inviting. I can almost safely bank on Thiem losing or throwing away a set 6-1 or 6-2. That really should cover the handicap. Good luck all!!!

    I think that she can even beat Berdych! ;)

    Oh ye man of little faith. I have not had a bet on this match.........but this clearly has the makings of drama ahead. Navarro is head strong. Let us find out about Halep and consistency. I am going to put the kettle on and wait for the 3rd set

  18. Kania vs Ahn(ITF Surbington)

    Ahn has lost two from last three coming from the clay to begin her grass court campaign. Head to Head is 1-0 in favour of Ahn. Ahn winning that match in monterry 2017 on hard courts. Kania has already won three games on grass in this qualifying series and with Kania still to taste the grass, I really think Kania @ 9/4 is real value. Also Kania to win a set @evens paddypower is quite gifty! Good luck all

  19. There has never been a more confusing Women's grand slam to sort out than this years. I believe it is even going to get more complex as things unfold. I have a very good feeling that this year's champ is certainly not one that we expect to win and is a person still very much under cover as is the case with slams. This, as it stands is just a regular WTA tournament where the fittest will survive. I have safely ruled out Mladenovic and Halep calculatively. Svitolina may be dodgy if her game comes unstuck an awkward opponent. All these people have played far too much tennis this period to snatch the trophy. So I am leaning towards Wozniacki/Cornet. As things will turn out, I really believe Woz gets revenge on Ostapenko on clay third time lucky, Ostapenko winning last 2 meetings on clay.

    For me there really should be no argument between Garcia/Cornet, the winner whom I am almost certain will be in the final for France. Cornet has the grit, character and balls and in all fairness will be the credible candidate of the two to lift the title on home ground. Garcia may be the most talented, but what value is talent without the mind and concrete balls? Cornet to beat Garcia looks a very sound pick indeed!!!!!

    That's not the sort of record liquidglass is talking about is it, I think he's talking about a running total during the season, like you provide occasionally but in a more formal way. I'm not suggesting  forcing anyone to do anything, I was just making a suggestion, Not sure what the reference to the glory hunters forum is about.

    Thanks Torque, You really did cross the ball on a sixpence beckhamlike. It is really not about anybody doing anything about it, rather it is about the management taking these steps to get some real credibility. There should be an official place for tipsters to post and a place to chat. It should be the responsibility of management to keep the records updated for everyone to see.....unless of course,"credibility" is not a term that really applies here as posting is just recreational. There can even be a sort of weekly tipsters competition just to be able to measure where everyone is at with their tipping. It will matter not whether or not you are a regular tipster as I will expect the structure in place to grade you on the percentage of your postings. It is always nice to visit forums where you really know that the tipsters know their onions and will most times have a winner in waiting. There are a few of them that I have bookmarked over the last 7 or more years that I visit every morning on a regular basis as a must. On ther other hand, if we are all just about innocuous frivolous tipping, then what I have said should not really matter. We can just remain on the same fun level!!!

    Alright, you start :).

    Well, It is really not up to me to start it off. It is up to the moderator or whoever in charge to set up a structure where this new idea can begin to work smoothly. It means having to reconfigure things on this forum.

  22. As a matter of suggestion on this forum, I really think it is high time that things are reorganized in respect to tipsters and tipping. First there should be a live board where the current standing and weekly results of tipsters are displayed so as to separate the cats from the pigeons. You cannot just have people as a way of relaxing, or just tip for the hell of it and not be held accountable, myself included before anyone starts having a go at me. At least then, when a person sees his awful record staring him in the face, he would deliberate well before publicising a tip.

    As it stands, the whole forum just appears to be a circus where people just say anything to try their luck and cushion their egos. I have to honestly say that I visit various tennis forums on a daily basis, especially in the slam season and I have to say that this forum is ultra consistent with giving very poor tips. Even when tips are right, you can be sure they will be surrounded by three times more failures. There are two forums that I visit regularly with regards to daily tips, and I have to say that their results have been blinding. One of them scoring 8/8 at one banker a day. We need credibility!!!! It will be great to have the tipsters here being competitive; it will be nice to see what each individual is made of; it will also be nice for visitors to know the tipsters in form and sidestep the circus activities. There really should be no hiding place for anyone who cannot even come up with an average showing. The moderator should really have no qualms about this, because it is all about moving forward.

    Well well well......Trust me, I am on your side because I took Cheung to win in a medium bet but played the over 36.5 in my main bet. Still, I have to say that despite your comment, your inner man must be telling you different. I smell de-ja-vous big time. Cheung will seem to have lost this match on the rain delay. He will be lucky to get to the 5th set in my opinion..........well unless the tennis gods take Sunday off. Same story with Bellis yesterday. The big players are always able to perform more efficient checks and balances with an overnight delay. I really wish I am wrong.
