I said Fokina´s opponents UNTIL semifinals were better than those who Ramos had (Herbert, completely out-of-form Verdasco and Moutet).. and yes, Ramos showed too many times that he is not man for big matches, so my prediction is not based only on last matches and form. 9:10 in semifinals on ATP level, 2:7 in finals. Andujar BTW has 4:5 in ATP finals, so you´re wrong, he´s better clay courter for me than Ramos.

Well, you worded it a little ambiguously, but yes I'll give you that. 

Ramos, is, however, a VERY good clay court player, and in probably the form of his life right now. It's the consistency that is winning him matches. When you say he's not the guy for ''big matches'', that really could be said about Fokina. I've been impressed my him vs. weaker opponents, but he's never really shone that much vs the very good players - at least when I've been watching him play. Ramos however gave Rublev and Carreno-Busta very close matches - the latter of which he 100% should have closed out. 

And if in your mind it's going to be a ''very close match'', then probably don't back the guy who is priced at 1.63. I only chimed in because I've watched both of them play a lot recently and was pretty bullish on Ramos. 

anyway welcome and glgl 🙂

I think you are wrong because I'm on Teichman to beat Badosa because Teichman is despite her recent showings a pure claycourt specialist and both her titles Palermo and Prague are tournaments on clay. Teichman is a good claycourter,

shrug, fair enough. good luck sir

I didn`t say Ramos is bad on clay at all, I just doubted his mindset. Well as you said, he should beat PCB.. I remember the score. Why he didn`t? Mental strength :D Only luck here was i played double with Ivashka, so loss is not big. And yeah, odds yesterday were 1.85 on Fokina. I also had long pause from betting and Spaniard is one of those players I probably don`t know well enough, so tnx for the information. Anyway I watched most of the match, Fokina had 4:1 in 2nd set, but then after few errors completely lost his head and lost 5 straight games. Ramos said after the match that this was not real picture from Fokina and that he is pretty afraid of Norrie, since he ``beat`` him on practice few days ago. Maybe useful info for tomorrow.

Otherwise Olivo was serving for first set 5:4 30:0 when Frenchman retired! 2 points left to set win, now it`s void. That is just insane, till that moment he played normally. On the other hand Ivashka took medical timeout, but didn´t retire of course..

Good luck to you too ;)

One of those things that's disgusting when it happens against you, but beautiful when it does go your way. Unlucky man. 

ah, I've already boarded the good ship Ramos-Vinolas again against Norrie. Kind of feel he deserves a title for all the high level tennis he's played this year so far. Will be rooting for him, even though I like Cam Norrie too - and fully aware Cam's also playing great of late. kind of has to be to come through against 3 clay specialists and Cilic!

Aryna Sabalenka (-1.5 sets) to beat Daria Kasatkina at 1.80 with Pinnacle

 

I did not like Kasatkina 's performance in her last two matches. She made too much unforced errors  against Begu but won some critical points then she saw second round.I dont think that Kasatkina is in her top form.

On the other hand, Aryna Sabalenka was very good in her last match. Big serves.  Big plays. Her serves are much better than Kasatkina's serves. I believe that she will break Kasatkina's serves in rows.

H2H stat shows Sabalenka won 2-0 in this surface. I expect same score for this match.

 

Good luck !
