I'd like to wish all tennis fans Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Celebrate well, guys, and thanks for participating in the forums this year!

Rublev to take a set and overs between Rafa and Tsitsipas would be my call.

Henri Laaksonen to beat Zdenek Kolar at 1.70 with Pinnacle

Kolar was awful when I saw him in Ortisei and, to be fair, he's been awful throughout the season, something just isn't clicking for him at the moment. The trip to Portugal might be what he needs, of course, but Laaksonen is on a higher level at the moment and the odds look good to me, I was thinking 1.57 at most for the Swiss guy. Laaksonen isn't a clay-court specialist by any stretch, but his clay results have been above average since the restart, only one bad performance I'd say and wins over Galan Riveros, Maden and Cid Subervi.

@lelit It's a strange choice, but it could work I reckon. It could also ruin her marriage though 😂

@TheBroker Hi and welcome! You can contact me either here or via a personal message.

Arthur Rinderknech to beat Duje Ajdukovic at 1.77 with Pinnacle

Laaksonen did well to beat Kolar this easily. I'll be backing Rinderknech in the next round, he looked decent and his recent results suggest that he has what it takes to win at this level. I saw his match against Hoang and he was playing well, has a good serve for the Challenger level as well. Ajdukovic hasn't beaten too many players of Rinderknech's standing recently, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him suffer.

Welcome to the forum @JMay6609!

Of course they are entitled to do whatever they want, but the conditions submitted look ridiculous to me honestly. Also, there have already been two Grand Slams played and there haven't been any substantial incidents so far, so I'm not sure why Australia is over-thinking things.

If you think that they are doing things right, do you think that the US Open and the French Open did them wrong?

And, I forgot to add, the French Open was also scheduled far too soon after the ending of another Grand Slam, on a different continent, and on a different surface.

I agree on your thoughts , but you can’t deny that others Slams and big tournament’s have already been played. All other sports have resumed and they are taking their measurements. NBA did great on the Bubble and quarantine of the players.  It shouldn’t be this hard to test them all and isolate them. The problem I see is they are big on the idea of having some  fans in attendance and that’s were things get complicated.

A strange match, that Rinderknech one!

Joao Menezes to beat Dmitry Popko at 1.83 with Bet365

Altug Celikbilek to beat Jozef Kovalik at 4.33 with Pinnacle

Menezes looked way better than last week when I saw him against Ficovich, he seems determined and Popko is average on clay, not great that he struggled against the heavy-legged Tirante either. Meanwhile, I also like a punt on Celikbilek given the odds. Kovalik is obviously way better overall, but he had issues in his last match and Celikbilek is on a decent run at the moment. I haven't seen him this week yet, but I saw him in Ortisei and I was impressed. He's got a shot, 3.00 would be fair.

Probably the end of the week for me honestly, a shabby end to a shabby season. Those have been few and far between so far in my career, but you have to stomach them every now and then. I'll have a full review as per usual and I'll also be keeping an eye on all the action in December, chances are that there will be something to bet on and that it will be worth it this year as well.

Also, I'll be keeping an eye on the calendar, since the Aussie Open can wreak havoc with the calendar if it gets scheduled for February!

Bajin is the new coach for Karolina Pliskova.
I wonder if it is his personal charm that causes frequent changes of his workplace?

However, it must be admitted that he has achieved many successes as a coach.

hahaha, mladenovic was not bad looking either

Yeah that's what I'm getting at. You can have a lot of security with certain protocols, you don't need a 2-week quarantine for one. It's not like you're allowing outside fans, it's just the players and their entourages.

What do u think of pedro sousa win today? Think the odds are quite high on him, mentally is not the best, but hes good on clay and is playing at home so...

Yep, I think you can make a case for him. He got through a rough patch yesterday and looked good in the decider, his opponent is nothing special. The odds seem fair though. Good luck!

Gabriela Elena Ruse to beat Kaja Juvan at 2.21 with Pinnacle

Slim value, but I have trouble understanding why Juvan should be such a big fav in this one. As most players in Dubai, she hasn't played for quite a while for obvious reasons and she's always been fairly up and down on hard courts. Ruse has two decent qualifying victories to her name, however, and she played a tight match with Juvan last time out in Palermo this year. With more match practice now under her belt, she could very well get over the line first.

Kristina Mladenovic to beat Gabriela Elena Ruse at 1.56 with Pinnacle

I'm happy that Ruse got over the line in the end for a nice win, but I have to go against her in the next match. You never know if Mladenovic is going to take things seriously or not, but she was apparently serious against Frech, a player that I rate way above Ruse for many reasons.

Katerina Siniakova to beat Heather Watson at 1.91 with Pinnacle

Siniakova can be shaky, but she's still better than Watson on the baseline level. Even much better already, I'd say, and she's been surprisingly solid so far. I expected her to have issues against Schmiedlova, but she just crushed her and should be ready for this encounter as well. I was expecting odds like 1.65 for the moneyline, but we're getting 1.91 at the moment - a price that I have to take no matter what.

P.Hercog/S.Cirstea - Over 20.5 games at 1.83 with Pinnacle

Both Hercog and Cirstea have been outstanding so far in Dubai, having little issues and beating solid opposition. Their H2H is full of tight matches and this could easily be yet another one of those. Both have enough power to hold serves and both can get choky as well, so the match-up has all the right ingredients for a lot of games. I'll take a bite of the 20.5 games line!

Thanks for this winning bet, because of this I'm positive for the week. Better to follow others here than posting bets here myself and thinking out bets on my own sometimes.
