Novak Djokovic/Dominic Thiem over 4.5 set at 3.30 with betsson

I fully belive this bet is going to come in after seeing both playing their best superb tennis today. There just was no stopping either of them from winning in straight sets and there should be nothing stopping them from going the distance tomorrow.

Barty - Anisimova. Barty to win @1.53 Unibet.

Halep's defeat was the surprise of the day today. However, I've seen the match, and I'd rather say that Halep was under her normal level than Anisimova was shining. On the other hand, Barty played today very well against the power of Keys meaning that he is ready to stand the aggressive game of the youngster. 

I think that Barty will win easily Anisimova and, for those who like bigger stakes, will take the Roland Garros this year @2.70 Unibet.

@darko08 So, we’ve got that one right.

Yep😬. But I'm not happy with my day, i expected 3-4 at least and i finally had 2 bets won and 2 lost.. I should have bet for the normal victory of Anisimova and not the +5,5 Games Handicap..

What are your thoughts guys about the tomorrow's women matches?

Konta - Vondrousova

Barty - Anisimova

???

On gut instinct I'd say three sets between Konta and Vondrousova. Can't see either of them winning easily - particularly when the winning line comes into view. Barty will probably beat Anisimova - the Australian has much more variety than Halep and I think that will be Anisimova's undoing as she's unlikely to be able to get into the kind of rhythm she got into today.

I think the above is a fair assessment. Against Martic, Vondrousova started to choke big time by being passive and serving poorly, but recovered just in time for Martic to have her own mini-choke. Konta is a bit more stable usually, but it's not something I'd like to trust pre-match. As for the second match, it really is a hard task for Anisimova mentally, she could really use a day off here.

Surely the only reasonable conclusion is that there’s no bets to be had on the remaining three matches in the women’s draw. 

Any of the four could win the tournament, or lose their semi final.

We have no concept of how good the two teenagers really are, or how far they can really go, as this is their first time at this stage.

Similarly, we have no concept of how good Johanna Konta actually is on clay, as there is no logic or previous seasons to base it on. Somehow she is suddenly good on clay, from being barely able to win a match on the surface before this season. We don’t know how good though, as we have nothing to base it on. Her performance against Sloane Stephens was sensational. 20 points out of 21 won on her serve in the second set - only service point she lost in that set was a double fault. We have no idea if she will get near that level again though.

Ashleigh Barty is the only one that we could perhaps get some kind of a read on - even then not very much of a read on her abilities on clay - but that’s irrelevant if we have nothing to go on on how good the other three are.

I hope that makes sense, but the point I’m trying to make is that surely the only conclusion here is that there is no value to be had on the rest of the women’s tournament. NO BETS from here on in please folks.

And I was so sure about Barty...

My feelings after watching Stephens vs Muguruza were "Wow if Sloane plays in a similar way than today she will be in the Final for sure". Now, after watching Konta destroying Sloane with the best match i have seen from her (on clay..!) my feelings are "Wow, if she plays and serve like she did today she will win RG! Well, i will not fall in the trap again, no bet for me in this one. If i was forced to bet in one of the WTA semifinal matches it will be for Anisimova because is the better payed and shes too young so there will be no pression on her (and no nerves considering that she has win over Sabalenka and Halep..), the pression will be on Barty.

WTA Bol 125k

Tamara Zidansek 2.10 v Timea Bacsinszky

I don't think Zidansek has started off great in her first two matches. It took her time to get into both matches but she eventually got the job done. She's the form player out of the two this year on clay, finalist here last year. Timea hasn't really been impressive on clay this year, also had two soft matches to come into this (Nao Hibino and Anna Tatishvili). Also bombed out of the French to Kurumi Nara in qualifying. There is value imo in the slight outsider whose massive forehand is a weapon when on and is fairly quick in her movement

Value clearly is on Anisimova and especially on Vondrousova.

Agree with Vondrousova - my value radar just gave me the signal.

Vondrousova to beat Konta @ 2.28 with Pinnacle

I don't know - Konta at least had some form going into the FO - a final in Rome.

But I guess as always is whether she can maintain her level that she did against Stephens....but her opponent in the SF is probably easier for Konta than Stephens in the sense that Stephens is a proven 'big stage' player. Also Konta beat this opponent in Rome. However as @darko08 said, the WTA side is so unpredictable, who really knows...

I don't know how Barty - Anisimova will finish but it's an incredible game. To lose 1:5 and win the set. To lose 0:3 and win the set...

That's why i usually don't bet on WTA

It sounds like you are connected to the universe and get signals from somewhere far away :)

Universe called math, but i'm concluding that users analysis makes it much much better.

It's the reason I love WTA. I seem to have a nack of usually picking the winners, unless i'm set betting. Then I'm terrible lol. 

Managed to back both winners today, I had a feeling one of the underdogs would get through but thought Vondrousova would be the more likely.

Behave - there was no way to predict who would win either match today, as we saw with how they both panned out. Both matches could have gone either way, and both nearly went the opposite way to what they did.

Maybe there's no way for YOU to predict. Like I said I usually do OK picking winners unless it's set betting where I'm crap. 

If I was to choose the set betting picks today I would have picked Barty 2-0 and Vondrousova 2-1 so would have lost them both. Now I stick to just match odds nearly all the time. Pic attached. I don't just make things up.

I know I never mentioned it but I backed Vondrosouva at the start At 40-1 so getting to the final it is a 20-1 to be in the final,what with my darts bet winning yesterday all is looking good.I might have a saver on the  set match betting in the final as they are better odds than backing a player to win the match.GoodLuck.

Good shout. Yeah I would cover that bet with some bets on the final, win either way then!

The only fool is my self. I can't explain logically why I place bets on WTA tour. It is really funny. 

Now I go for the last one, and afterwards I will sit on the bench where I deserve to sit.

Barty-Fart to lift the trophy against Vondrusova.

Would be interesting to get a rematch of last year's RG final between Nadal and Thiem. Nadal looked good against Federer but I think Thiem could really push Rafa hard this time around. But let's see what Nole has to say first :D
