Re: French Open match betting

Tomorrow I have an eye on Shvedova 2-0 @ 2.2 on stanjames. So far this year she's been beaten by top players (Petrova' date= Zvonareva, Pennetta) in reasonably close games and is one of the few who have taken a set off the fantastic Azarenka. Rus is at least a couple of levels below and should find it tough to compete.
6-0 6-2. :ok

Re: French Open match betting Glatch looks like value to me tomorrow. Powerful player who has some solid results this year and smashed Pennetta 6-1 6-1 in the 1st round. Dunno why she's the dog here. Prices are dropping already but up to 2.2 still available on stanjames. More on this later when I look into it. Pennetta was terrible and possibly injured so it's hard to read too much into that result.

Re: French Open match betting Safarova +4.5 @ 2.1 Safarova @ 4.33 Venus 2-1 @ 4.5 Decided to go for this. All on boylesports. Venus a bit too short here I think. She's had a few 3 setters lately and dropping a set against Mattek isn't good at all, although she can always afford to be a bit lax and then bring out the big guns when required. Safarova's capable of competing with the top players on her day and did a good job on talented Lisicki in the first round. These two had a 3 setter in Rome and I expect something similar here. Looks like the match will start quite late so poor light conditions might even things up a bit too.

Re: French Open match betting Bad day today. Sorry can't be bothered writing.... Chardy @ 1.75 Betfair. Think he'll get on a roll at home again. Serves better, higher ranked and this looks a solid price. Rufin to win a set @ 2.25 Will Hill. Don't know much about this kid but fancy he'll give Melzer some problems. Like getting over evens on this. Mayer @ 2.50 Stan James. Mayer very strong in the first round against Blake. Not sure about Haas, beat Pavel but he's nowhere near fit and I think this should be close to evens. Monaco @ 1.7 Betfair. Despite being at home, I don't fancy Tsonga. He's really quite average on clay and Monaco is a proper clay courter and should give him a lesson here. SAFAROVA @ 2.42 Betfair. Like this price with Safarova a set up. She's got a big hitting game to hurt Venus and from the little I saw on the 1st set she was playing well. Should have got on pre match! Bammer @ 1.94 Betfair. This seems a bit strange - I thought Bammer would be a pretty strong fav. She's a much better player, and got a reasonable win in the 1st round. She struggled in a couple of tournaments leading up to this but I think that could have to do with her sometimes not turning up 100% mentally to tournaments. Now in the 1nd round I'm willing to back her. Czink is crap!

Re: French Open match betting Safarova playing very well and took the first set in a tiebreak before bad light stopped play. The handicap bet was a bit silly in hindsight as Venus could still win by a decent margin and eat into my profit but that'll have to do. I quite fancy Shvedova to give Sharapova a shock for the same reasons Mr.I gave for backing Petrova. Shvedova backed up her 3 set win over big serving Kanepi by battering Rus in under an hour, winning 21/22 1st serve points and only losing 6 points on serve in total. Until she's match fit, I don't think Sharapova will be bagging any easy straight set wins for a while, especially not on clay where she always looks awkward and expecially not against a decent opponent like this. Shvedova @ 4.5 Sharapova 2-1 @ 4.5 Both boylesports.

Re: French Open match betting Hi guys, 3 bets for the Roland Garros tournament: CIBULKOVA TO D DULKO @ 1.6 on pinnaclesports Dulko has a good season but is probably less consistent on clay than Cibulkova who is a top 10 potential for sure. The H2H is 2:0 to Cibulkova with two straight sets wins on clay in 2007 and 2008 for the very young Cibulkova then and now she is a better player than in those seasons. REZAI TO D LARCHER DE BRITO @ 1.47 on betfair Rezai has such a good powerful game suited for all surfaces and she is in good form winning Strasbourg last week. Larcher De Brito was lucky to escape first round and is not at her best on clay. Rezai defeated Larcher De Brito by 6:1, 6:2 two months ago in Miami. GICQUEL TO D BECK @ 2.14 on betfair Beck is a good young player but his power game is not suited to clay. He had one good clay court tournament in his career (Monaco 2009) and this should be the reason for such high odds but otherwise he lacks consistency for slow courts. Gicquel was excellent in first round here against Schuettler 6:0, 6:0, 6:4 and has several good clay court results lately.

Re: French Open match betting Bad day yesterday,4-4 for the tournament with one pending. Going with an acca today.Usually hate doing them but confident about this one Del Potro x Roddick x Seppi x Djokovic(3-0) @ approx 2.2 Del Potro playing super stuff and will beat Troicki. Roddick has a tricky one with Minar and despite it being his weakest surface,he's not been half bad on dirt in recent matches.Expect a win.Seppi is on fire aswell and should beat Maximo Gonzalez.Novak will win but hopefully he does it in 3. Good Luck!

Tsonga was very good against bennetau, anything else than " quite average"

Apologies if anyone took this.JMDP is comfortably winning but Seppi lost in Straight sets:eek to Maximo.Converted only 2/19 break points.Really poor display. 4wins-5losses for tournament now.Hopefully luck turns in coming days. Lads, Monaco/Tsonga tough one to call.Monaco is certainly a better clay-courter but Jo has the power and the crowd behind him.Probably go the distance. Good Luck!

2-1 Sharapova. Shvedova could've won it but shot selection was a bit weird at times. 11 DFs and 50 UEs for Sharapova and it was another long 3 setter for her so if prices are decent enough, I'm on Na Li who hasn't had any trouble so far and has done ok on clay this year.

Re: French Open match betting Verdasco - Davydenko Well , of course Verdasco shouldn't be so much heavy favorite against Davydenko. They both have been top 10 for a long time. Moreover , Davydenko leads 4-1 at head to head statictics including one clay victory against Verdasco. The last meeting was 3 years agp in 2006. After 2006 , davydenko stays at the same point . ( may be going back ) But Verdasco improves himself. ( Especially in physical point of view ) He solved his cramp problems. And he strengthen his arms. After remembering Verdasco - Almagro match eventough odds are very low i think Verdasco's victory against Davydenko is safe bet. Davydenko can take a set , but i do not think he is close to victory against Verdasco. History will repeat again ; Verdasco will beat Davydenko. And he will play against Murray in the quarter finals ; like 5 months ago in australian open. Verdasco @1.57

Re: French Open match betting Na Li @ 2.1 She has not been good to me in the past and I was hoping for better odds but I'll try her here against Sharapova who has had a mentally and physically demanding run so far. The serve isn't right, she's making lots of UEs and Na Li will be the strongest opponent she's faced so far. Cilic looks interesting and anything around 3.00 looks pretty good value. He's got superior form at the moment and Murray has been in trouble with Starace and Tipsy. H2H is in Murray's favour but the matches were quite tight.

Re: French Open match betting Verdasco(1.57) v Davydenko (2.73) Here I think Verdasco will be too strong for a Davydenko still returning from injury. Verdasco has showed he has turned up mentally (winning two tough tie breaks against Almagro). H2H shows 4-1 to Davydenko, Verdasco must feel he has something to prove against the Russian. Verdasco should be fresh after coming through each round in straight sets (83 games) and I see no problems here. Bets Verdasco 1.57 (betfair) 10 points Verdasco -3.5 games 5/6 (boylesports) 4 Points Verdasco 3-0 4.0 (Betdaq) 1.5 points

Re: French Open match betting Murray (1.42) v Cilic (3.25) Murray enters the 4th round of the French Open for the first time with his clay game improving all the time. He's had a couple of sticky patches during a couple of his matches so it shows there's still a long way to go for him. But he's come through them well. Cilic has breezed through his opening rounds so far. His form coming into this match is ok. Since winning a ATP 250 tournament in Zagreb in Feb he hasn't progressed beyond 3 matches into a tournament suggesting this is the extent of playing level. 1.42 for Murray is probably the right price at the moment. I see no value in backing Murray before the game. Murray may get off to one of his slow starts so I would advise waiting for the first set to be completed. If he is 1-0 down I would be looking to back Murray at 1.90> (3 points)

Re: French Open match betting Murray v Cilic - Over 37.5 games @ 1.90 Cilic going nicely so far albeit against soft opponents. Murray struggled a bit against Starace and needed a breaker in the first set against Tipsarevic. Cilic is a strong server and I feel that for this bet to come in he'll only need to win one set. I believe he was a junior French Open champion too so he's clearly competent on clay.

Re: French Open match betting Nadal out - cannot believe it! Amazing match by Soderling. Anyway, onto tomorrow: Robredo tb Kohlschreiber @ 5/6 Two players who can be very inconsistent and it most likely will be a tight one. Kohlschreiber produced a great display to beat Novak in straights but is still very inconsistent. Tommy is better on the dirt and can deal with Philippe with a 3-0 head to head, with two on clay.Would be like Kohlschreiber to drop his level after a great match like the Djokovic one.

Re: French Open match betting Hi guys, 1 more bet for the Roland Garros tournament: CIBULKOVA TO D SHARAPOVA @ 2.3 on boylesports Sharapova was extremely lucky to win all of her matches but most importantly she has never faced a defensive-playing clay courter like Cibulkova. All of her wins were against attacking players who missed the ball and actually defeated themselves (Petrova, Li, Shvedova). Cibulkova must be too solid and will not make errors that Li or Petrova made.

Re: French Open match betting

Event Roddick - Monfils
Selection Monfils
Strength 10/10
Date 01/06/2009
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.77 (Back)
Reasoning Odds are nice for the french, as he is a better clay player than Roddick and anyone knows that. He's improved his game lately and seems to be more constant. In front of his supporters he should have an even clearer advantage. Roddick is poor on his backhand, everyone knows it and on clay without the backhand you can't win. Because a strong forehand won't save you. And being a slower surface a poor backhand if played intenselt can give a great advantage to the opponent, especially when the opponent is a clay specialist and a good player.

Re: French Open match betting Another stunning performance by Soderling - amazing what can happen when it clicks! Quite fancy Murray later, think it'll be a good match up for him. Also rumours surrounding Gonzalez's fitness, he pulled out of the doubles yesterday and apparently didn't train.
