Cincinnati Masters Tips

Richard Gasquet vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
3.15am

Roberto Bautista-Agut To Win 2-0 @ $1.80

Roberto Bautista-Agut has recorded four wins from his five previous meetings with Richard Gasquet and he has won their three most recent clashes in straight sets. He recorded a comfortable straight set win over Gasquet in at the Canadian Open last weekend and I think that we will see a repeat in this clash.

Yoshihito Nishioka vs David Goffin
5.15am

Yoshihito Nishioka To Win @ $2.60

Yoshihito Nishioka has been nothing short of outstanding during this tournament to date and he comes into this clash on the back of big wins over Kei Nishikori and Alex De Minaur. He beat David Goffin when they met at the Washington Open a few weeks ago and there isn’t much between their hold/break percentages.

Andrey Rublev vs Daniil Medvedev
9.15am

Daniil Medvedev To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

Andrey Rublev pulled off one of the biggest performances of his career to beat Roger Federer, but I’m not sure that he can replicate that performance against Daniil Medvedev. Medvedev has a hold/break percentage on hard courts that is clearly superior to that of Rublev and I think that he will be too strong for the Russian.

Miomir Kecmanovic vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
5.15am

Miomir Kecmanovic To Win @ $3

Miomir Kecmanović is playing some of the best tennis of his career and he is capable of upsetting Roberto Bautista-Agut at his current price of $3. There is very little between their hold/break percentages on hard courts over the past 12 months and Bautista Agut didn’t look at his best against Francis Tiafoe.

Lucas Pouille vs Karen Khachanov
7.15am

Karen Khachanov To Win 2-0 @ $2.60

Karen Khachanov showed a huge amount of composure to beat Nick Kyrgios in a highly controversial match yesterday and I think that he is great value to score a comfortable win over Lucas Pouille. Khachanov has a hold/break percentage on hard courts that is clearly superior to that of Pouille and the $2.60 for him to win in straight sets is outstanding value.

Ash Barty vs Anett Kontaveit
1.15am

Ash Barty To Win 2-0 @ $1.75

Ash Barty has returned to her brilliant best and she was nothing short of dominant against Maria Sharapova. I don’t think that Anett Kontaveit will prove any tougher and Barty should be able to cruise to a straight sets win.

Reilly Opelka vs Borna Coric
11.15am

Borna Coric To Win @ $2

I am a big fan of Reilly Opelka, but I don’t really understand why he is favourite for this Cincinnati Masters clash with Borna Coric. Opelka has one of the best serves on the ATP Tour, but his hold/break percentage on hardcourts is still inferior to that of Coric. Coric should be favourite and is great value at $2.

Gael Monfils vs Frances Tiafoe
2.15am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $2

Gael Monfils is coming off a withdrawal due to an ankle injury at the Rogers Cup in Canada, but I still think that he is value for this clash with Frances Tiafoe. Monfils played some excellent tennis before his withdrawal and his hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly superior to that of his rival.

Fernando Verdasco vs Benoit Paire
1.00am

Fernando Verdasco To Win @ $1.95

He is always tough to trust from a betting perspective, but Fernando Verdasco does represent genuine value at his current quote. His hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly superior to that of Benoit Paire and, on his day, he is clearly a the superior player.

Canadian Open Day 5 Tips

Daniil Medvedev vs Dominic Thiem
2.15am

Three Total Sets @ $2.15

This should be an outstanding game of tennis and I would be surprised if this match did not go to three sets. Their previous meeting on hardcourts went to three sets and their respective levels suggest that this will be another very tight encounter.

Karen Khachanov vs Alexander Zverev
4.15am

Karen Khachanov To Win @ $1.95

Betting against Alexander Zverev has been a strong betting play this season and Karen Khachanov is a good bet to upstage the German. Khachanov has a hold/break percentage on hard court that is slightly superior to that of his rival and I believe that he has gone to another level in the past couple of months.

Gael Monfils vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
3.15am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $2.05

Gael Monfils did the job for us against Hubert Hurkacz yesterday and he could hardly have been more impressive. When he is firing, he is capable of mixing it with the very best players in the world and his hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly superior to that of Roberto Bautista-Agut.

Canadian Open Day 4 Tips

 

Hubert Hurkacz vs Gael Monfils
10.45am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $2.15

Hubert Hurkacz has played some excellent tennis in recent weeks, but I still don’t think that he should be favourite for this clash with Gael Monfils. Monfils has a hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to that of Hurkacz and he is great value at $2.15.

Richard Gasquet vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
10.45am

Under 21.5 Games @ $1.91

Roberto Bautista-Agut has an excellent record against Richard Gasquet and he deserves to go into this clash as a clear favourite. Bautista-Agut has won three of their four previous meetings in straight sets and the Under has saluted in all three of these clashes. The Spaniard should be able to cruise to a comfortable win.

Belinda Bencic vs Elina Svitolina
3.15am

Belinda Bencic To Win @ $1.80

Backing Belinda Bencic has been a profitable betting play in the WTA Tour all season long and she should prove too strong for Elina Svitolina. Bencic has won the two previous meetings between the pair and her recent form has been superior to that of Svitolina.

Canadian Open Day 3 Tips

Karen Khachanov vs Stan Wawrinka
12.00am

Karen Khachanov To Win @ $2.15

Karen Khachanov should be favourite for this clash with Stan Wawrinka. Wawrinka may have won the past two meetings between the duo, but Khachanov does have a superior hold/break percentage over the past 12 months and he generally does play well at this level.

Richard Gasquet vs Kei Nishikori
12.00am

Richard Gasquet To Win A Set @ $1.91

There isn’t as much between Richard Gasquet and Kei Nishikori as the current market suggests. Gasquet has actually won seven of their previous ten meetings and has won five of their six clashes on hard court. Nishikori hasn’t been particularly consistent this year to date and Gasquet is a great bet to win at least one set.

Denis Shapovalov vs Dominic Thiem
12.00am

Dominic Thiem To Win 2-0 @ $2.40

I think that Denis Shapovalov’s chances have been overrated because he is playing in his home country. He has actually struggled for consistency this season to date and his hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly inferior to that of Dominic Thiem. Thiem won comfortably in their only previous meeting and I expect to see the same in this clash.

Canadian Open Day 2 Tips

Jordan Thompson vs John Isner
2.15am

Jordan Thompson To Win @ $2.60

Jordan Thompson had an excellent grass court season and there is an argument to be made that he is playing the best tennis of his career. He has the game to frustrate John Isner and Thompson actually has a superior hold/break percentage on hardcourts over the past 12 months. He is great value at $2.60.

Hubert Hurkacz vs Taylor Harry Fritz
6.15am

Taylor Harry Fritz To Win @ $2

Taylor Harry Fritz is one of the most exciting young players on the ATP Tour and he goes into this tournament on the back of making the final at both Atlanta and Los Cabos. He has played plenty of tennis in the past fortnight, but he is tough and I am adamant that he has far more talent than Hurkacz.

Cameron Norrie vs Alexander Zverev
10.45am

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $3.20

I don’t think that there is as much between Cameron Norrie and Alexander Zverev as the current betting market suggests. There is no doubt that Zverev has struggled for consistency at times this season and he hasn’t played a great deal of tennis on hard courts. There isn’t a great deal between their hold/break percentages and Norrie shouldn’t be $3.20.

Canadian Open Day 1 Tips

Laslo Djere vs Christian Garin
2.15am

Laslo Djere To Win @ $2

Christian Garin may now be a top 50 player, but he still has not proven himself on hardcourts. He has won only two of his eight matches on the surface on the ATP Tour and his hold/break percentage is extremely poor. Laslo Djere is better on clay as well, but he does have some hardcourt credentials and he should be favourite for this match.

Stan Wawrinka vs Grigor Dimitrov
6.15am

Grigor Dimitrov To Win @ $2.50

Grigor Dimitrov has been in very poor form in 2019, but he should still not be as long a price for this clash with Stan Wawrinka. Dimitrov’s hold/break percentage is only slightly inferior to that of Wawrinka and there is not much between their head to head records.

Benoit Paire vs Richard Gasquet
8.45am

Richard Gasquet To Win @ $2.10

I am shocked that Richard Gasquet is not a clear favourite for this match. Gasquet has a superior hold/break percentage on hardcourts than that of Benoit Paire over the past 12 months and he has won six of their past seven meetings – including their four previous clashes on hardcourt.

Saturday August 3

Dominic Thiem v Lorenzo Sonego
11.45pm

Under 20.5 Games @ $2.05

Generali Open

In all honesty, anything other than a comfortable Thiem win here would be a massive surprise, especially with how he has been flying through this tournament so far. There was a slight scare in his last match against Pablo Andujar but it seems like Sonego might have run his race already in this tournament. He has gone to a tiebreak in five of his last eight sets but hasn’t faced a player of Thiem’s quality yet and should be majorly outclassed. I’ll back Thiem to win in straight sets and not drop more than eight games.

Jessica Pegula v Lauren Davis
4.15am

3 Sets in the Match @ $2.20

Citi Open

These two players met in Newport Beach earlier this year and it was Pegula getting up in straight sets but I’m backing a much tighter contest here. They have both followed a similar storyline in the first two matches getting through in straight sets in the first round before needing three sets in the Round of 16. This matchup certainly seems like it will wind up going the distance so that’s what I’ll back here at over even money.

Elina Svitolina v Maria Sakkari
7.15am

Svitolina To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

Silicon Valley Classic

Svitolina needed all three sets to get past Sakkari at Wimbledon but could have closed it out in a second set tiebreak. In this case I’ll back Svitolina to finish off Sakkari in straight sets with the “back the better player” theory. Six of Svitolina’s last seven wins have been by straight sets and if she can get on top of Sakkari’s serve early this could be over inside an hour.

Friday August 2

Albert Ramos-Vinolas v Jeremy Chardy
8.45pm

Chardy To Win @ $2.25

Generali Open

There’s a good chance of an upset in this one as Frenchman Chardy takes on Spaniard Ramos for the second time this year. It was Chardy prevailing when they met in Madrid back in May, also on clay and he goes into this one at a very tempting price, even if it’s just because these two seem very evenly matched. Both players have reached this stage in similar fashion but with the way Chardy closed out Lajovic in his previous match, he might just be clicking into form.

Kristie Ahn v Elise Mertens
3.00am

Under 19.5 Games @ $1.95

Silicon Valley Classic

You would have to expect Mertens to be able to comfortably account for qualifier Ahn in San Jose. This is the first time she has made it past the first round in this tournament and she needed three sets to get past Ajla Tomljanovic there. I’m expecting a straight sets win for Mertens and she shouldn’t drop more than seven games so I’m backing a quick, one sided match.

Kyle Edmund v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
9.15am

3 Sets in the Match @ $2.25

Citi Open

Much like the other men’s match I’m backing, this one should be very close and since I am giving only a slight edge to Edmund, I’ll back this to go the distance and have an insurance play rather than go for the set betting. Tsonga has won both head to head meetings between the two players in straight sets but needed a tie break in one set on both occasions. With this one being on his preferred hard court surface as well, this should need all three sets to be resolved.

Thursday August 1

Fernando Verdasco v Jozef Kovalik
9.15am

Verdasco To Win 2-0 @ $2.05

Generali Open

After battling through the first round in three sets, Kovalik has drawn third seeded Verdasco having already achieved his best result at this tournament. It’s unlikely that run will extend beyond this match as Verdasco has a real edge in quality over his opponent here. It’s a good chance for Verdasco to end a run of first up losses in his last two tournaments, both of which have come against Albert Ramos-Vinolas so he has to be glad to be seeing someone else.

Yoshihito Nishioka v David Goffin
3.00am

Goffin To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

Citi Open

Nishioka got through his first round match with minimal fuss, dropping just five games to book a date with Belgian Goffin who had a bye in the first round. There’s a lot favouring Goffin here as he has won his first match in each of his last five tournaments, the last four of which have been in straight sets. I’m happy to back a mismatch in this one and take Goffin to get the job done with ease.

Elina Svitolina v Daria Kasatkina
6.15am

Svitolina To Win 2-0 @ $1.73

Silicon Valley Classic

After coasting through the first round with a bye, the top seed Svitolina takes on Russian wild card Kasatkina in her first match since losing in the semi final at Wimbledon. The Ukranian number 7 in the world brings a 4-0 head to head record in this match and should be able to comfortably account for her opponent here. After all, she has only dropped two sets in those four matches and I’m expecting a straightforward, straight sets victory.

Wednesday July 31

Sloane Stephens v Rebecca Peterson
4.15am

Stephens To Win 2-0 @ $1.85

Citi Open

Top seed Stephens is back in action taking on Peterson in Washington and you would expect her to get through this one without a whole lot of drama. 70th ranked Peterson has won just four of her nine outings on hard courts this year with her last outing on the surface coming back in March. Both players will be making their first appearances since Wimbledon and I’m expecting a comfortable win for Stephens.

Shuai Zhang v Danielle Collins
7.15am

Collins To Win 2-1 @ $4.20

Silicon Valley Classic

This one should be a very close match with Zhang returning after a quarter final run at Wimbledon while Collins only made the third round. What is tipping the scales towards Collins in this one though is she is a much stronger player on hard courts including a Semi Final run in Melbourne earlier this year and a career 81-52 record on the surface. It’s an even match between the two that should go the distance but

Andrey Rublev v Bernard Tomic
9.15am

Rublev To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Citi Open

How can you pass up a chance to back against Bernard Tomic? While this does take place on his favoured surface of a hard court it’s hard to have too much confidence in him getting through this one without any sort of controversy or drama. Having withdrawn from his last tournament in Atlanta and being prone to a good old tank at any time, he could drop this game pretty quickly. Not to mention Rublev is coming off an appearance in the final in Hamburg last weekend so he should bring some good form into this match as well.

Tuesday July 30

Jeremy Chardy vs Marco Cecchinato
1.45am

Chardy To Win 2-0 @ $2.40

Generali Open

We open up our tips for today looking at this clash between the Frenchman Chardy and Italian Cecchinato in Austria. I’m backing Chardy to get out of the first round in his first ever matchup with the 26 year old whose singles form makes for some pretty poor reading. He has lost his last six singles matches, five of which have been in straight sets despite going into Roland Garros as the 16th seed. Chardy has made it to the quarters in his last two tournaments and is still more than capable of making a run at tournaments like this one so I’ll take him to win in straight sets.

Jennifer Brady vs Sofia Kenin
9.15am

Kenin To Win 2-0 @ $2.30

Citi Open

Both Brady and Kenin are back on the court after a couple of weeks off post Wimbledon and it will be the first head to head meeting between these players. Kenin has won her first two top level tournaments in 2019 and has put together an excellent 14-6 record on hard courts this year, including going through the Hobart international without dropping a set. Brady is also a player that prefers hard courts but Kenin is in better form and I’m expecting her to come out firing here and picking up a straight sets victory.

Eugenie Bouchard vs Lauren Davis
12.15pm

3 Sets in the Match @ $2.30

Citi Open

You may remember the name Lauren Davis after she beat defending champion Angelique Kerber in the second round of Wimbledon earlier this month. This will be her first outing in nearly four weeks since her third round exit there and she has been drawn against Eugenie Bouchard who is trying to work her way back onto the tour but is struggling to regain the form that saw her rise up the rankings early on in her career. Bouchard’s last win in a match came in February so she is probably due for something but until she does something I have to give the edge to Davis. What wouldn’t surprise me though is if the American gets off to a bit of a slow start having had a few weeks off and this one winds up going the full three sets.

Atlanta Open Round 2 Tips

John Isner vs Reilly Opelka
9.15am

Reilly Opelka To Win @ $2.25

These are two very similar players and we are likely in for at least a couple of tie-breakers in this clash. John Isner may be the favourite, but Opelka has a slightly superior hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months and he beat Isner earlier this year at both the Australian Open and the New York Open.

Matthew Ebden vs Bernard Tomic
12.00am

Over 22.5 Games @ $1.80

Bernard Tomic played some excellent tennis to beat Francis Tiafoe in the opening round and he will go into this clash with Matthew Ebden as a narrow favourite. I really don’t think that there is a great deal between this pair at the moment and I expect this to be a very competitive clash. Three sets looks likely and the $1.80 available for Over 22.5 games is excellent value.

Cameron Norrie vs Alexei Popyrin
12.00am

Cameron Norrie To Win 2-0 @ $2.70

Cameron Norrie is a player that I believe has a big future and I expect him to be far too good for Alexei Popyrin in this Atlanta Open clash. Popyrin played some excellent tennis against Pierre-Hugues Herbert, but I’m not sure that he can back that up and I think Norrie can cruise to a comfortable victory.

Atlanta Open Tips

Alexei Popyrin vs Pierre-Hugues Herbert
1.00am

Pierre-Hugues Herbert To Win @ $1.80

Pierre-Hugues Herbert is favoured by the quick courts at the Atlanta Open and he should be a shorter-priced favourite for his clash with Aussie Alexei Popyrin. Herbert has a hold/break percentage on hardcourts that is superior to that of Popyrin and he should have too much firepower for his rival.

German Open Tips

Casper Ruud vs Andrey Rublev
7.45pm

Casper Ruud To Win @ $1.83

I am surprised that Casper Ruud is not a short-priced favourite for this clash with Andrey Rublev. Ruud’s hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is an impressive 108.5% and that is clearly superior to that of Andrey Rublev at less than 93%. Ruud is a safe bet and excellent value at the current price.

Jeremy Chardy vs Richard Gasquet
9.45pm

Richard Gasquet To Win @ $1.95

Both these players are past their best and there isn’t much between them, but the $1.95 available for a Richard Gasquet win does appeal. Gasquet has a hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months that is narrowly superior to that of Chardy and he has won five of their seven previous meetings on the ATP Tour.

German Open Tips

Hugo Dellien vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
7.45pm

Hugo Dellien To Win @ $2.10

Betting against Nikoloz Basilashvili has been a profitable play all season long on the ATP Tour and I am happy to take him on again at the German Open. Hugo Dellien has had some strong results on clay this season and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is superior to that of Basilashvili.

Pablo Carreno-Busta vs Yannick Hanfmann
11.45pm

Pablo Carreno-Busta To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

I am not sure why Pablo Carreno-Busta isn’t a clear favourite for this German Open clash with Yannick Hanfmann. Hanfmann has a poor overall record on the ATP Tour and Carreno-Busta has a hold/break percentage on clay that is clearly superior to that of his rival.

Atlanta Open Day 1 Tips

Bradley Klahn vs Marius Copil
7.00pm

Marius Copil To Win @ $2.50

There is nowhere near as much between this duo as the current betting market suggests. Marius Copil has a superior hold/break percentage on hardcourts over the past 12 months to that of Bradley Klahn and there was very little between them when they met in Stockholm last year.

Jordan Thompson vs Cameron Norrie
7.00pm

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.05

Cameron Norrie has been an excellent player from a betting perspective this season and he is still underrated by the market. His hold/break percentage on hardcourts this season is superior to that of Thompson and he was successful when this duo met at the US Open last year. Norrie is value at the $2.05 currently available.

Reilly Opelka vs Alexander Bublik
7.00pm

Over 25.5 Games

Reilly Opelka and Alexander Bublik are both big-server and we won’t see a huge number of breaks of serve in this clash. Both players have broken serve less than 10% of the time on hardcourts over the past 12 months and two tiebreaks, as well as three sets, both look like strong options.

Hall Of Fame Open Day 4 Tips

Mischa Zverev vs Marcel Granollers
1.00am

Marcel Granollers To Win 2-0 @ $2

Marcel Granollers did the job for us against Jordan Thompson overnight and he deserves to start this clash with Mischa Zverev as a clear favourite. Granollers has a hold/break percentage over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to that of Zverev and he won their only previous meeting on grass.

Swedish Open Day 4 Tips

Jeremy Chardy vs Nicolas Jarry
7.00pm

Nicolas Jarry To Win @ $1.91

Jeremy Chardy beat Nicolas Jarry when they met on a hardcourt earlier this season, but Jarry deserves to have the edge on clay. His hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Chardy and, before this tournament, Chardy had won only four of his past 12 matches on clay.

Roberto Carballes Baena vs Albert Ramos
1.00am

Robert Carballes Baena To Win @ $1.80

There isn’t a great deal between these two players, but Roberto Carballes Baena deserves to go into this Swedish Open clash with Albert Ramos as favourite. Baena has a hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months that is superior to that of Ramos and he has won the past two matches that have been played between the pair.

Hall Of Fame Open Day 3 Tips

Ugo Humbert vs Ramkumar Ramanathan
1.00am

Ramkumar Ramanathan To Win @ $2.70

Ramkumar Ramanathan has produced some impressive performances on grass this season and he comes into this clash after recording a tough win over Sergiy Stakhovsky. His hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is superior to that of Ugo Humbert and his strong service record can lead him to an upset win.

Jordan Thompson vs Marcel Granollers
1.00am

Marcel Granollers To Win @ $2.15

tch make a deep run at the Hall Of Fame Open. Marcel Granollers is a player that I believe is consistently underrated by the market and he does represent value at $2.15. His hold/break percentage on grass is superior to that of Thompson and this slightly slower than usual grass court does suit his game.

Adrian Mannarino vs Tennys Sandgren
1.00am

Adrian Mannarino To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

nnis on grass and he should prove too strong for Tennys Sandgren in this clash. Mannarino has a hold/break percentage on the surface that is clearly superior to that of Sandgren, whose overall record on grass is poor.

Hall Of Fame Open Day 2 Tips

Denis Kudla vs Bradley Klahn
1.15am

Bradley Klahn To Win @ $2.50

Denis Kudla is a player that I am generally happy to take on when he is favourite and he is well and truly under the odds ahead of this clash at the Hall Of Fame Open. Bradley Klahn is a better player than his recent form suggests and his hold/break percentage on grass is clearly superior to that of Kudla over the past 12 months.

Alexander Bublik vs Alex Bolt
1.15am

Alex Bolt To Win @ $1.91

I am not really sure why Aussie Alex Bolt is not a clear favourite for this clash with Alexander Bublik. Bolt was absolutely dominant in his two wins to qualify for this tournament and his hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Bublik. It would not surprise to see Bolt make a run at this tournament.

Viktor Troicki vs Jason Jung
3.15am

Jason Jung To Win @ $2.40

Jason Jung has produced some impressive performances on the Challenger Tour this season and he beat both Sergiy Stakhovsky and Nicolas Mahut at this tournament 12 months ago. Viktor Toricki is not the player that he once was and has had plenty of issues with injury this season. Jung is value at the current price of $2.40.

Hall Of Fame Open Day 1 Tips

Bernard Tomic vs Ilya Lvaskha
1.15am

Bernard Tomic To Win 2-0 @ $2.05

It is always tough to back Bernard Tomic with a great deal of confidence, but this is a match that he really should be able to win comfortably. His record on grass is good, despite his disappointing effort at Wimbledon, and his rival Ilya Lvaskha has never won a match on grass on the main ATP Tour.

Denis Istomin vs Tennys Sandgren
7.15am

Denis Istomin To Win @ $2.50

There isn’t as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests. Denis Istomin has generally produced some of his best tennis on grass, while Tennys Sandgren has not played a huge amount of tennis on the surface. Istomin is great value to claim an upset win at $2.50.

Marcel Granollers vs Prajnesh Gunneswaran
3.15am

Marcel Granollers To Win 2-0 @ $2.05

Marcel Granollers is one of a select group of Spanish players on the ATP Tour that actually have a decent record on clay and he should prove too classy for Prajnesh Gunneswaran. Granollers has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of his rival and the $2.05 for him to win in straight sets is a great bet.

Wimbledon Men’s Final Tips

Novak Djokovic vs Roger Federer
11.00pm

Novak Djokovic (-1.5 Sets) @ $1.91

Novak Djokovic has won his past four meetings with Roger Federer and the Swiss Maestro has not beaten the Serbian since 2015. Djokovic has won their past two meetings at Wimbledon, both of which were in the final, and he has also won three of their four clashes in Grand Slam Finals. Beating Federer is always easier said than done and he will give a fight, but Djokovic is still a great bet to cover the Sets Handicap of -1.5.

Wimbledon Women’s Final Tips

Serena Williams vs Simona Halep
10.00pm

Serena Williams To Win 2-1 @ $4

Serena Williams has won her past five meetings with Simona Halep and deserves to be a clear favourite for this Wimbledon Final. Halep has taken a set from Williams in three of their past five clashes and I think a repeat is on the cards. The $4 available for Williams to win in three sets is excellent value.

Wimbledon Men’s Semi Finals Tips

Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer
10.00pm

Roger Federer To Win @ $2.10

This is the first meeting between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at Wimbledon since their epic final in 2008. It is something of a surprise that Nadal will start this match as favourite as Federer has won six of their past seven meetings and hasn’t lost to his great rival on a non-clay court since 2014. Grass continues to be Federer’s best service and I think that he is truly outstanding value to qualify for 12th Wimbledon final.

Novak Djokovic vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
10.00pm

Roberto Bautista-Agut To Win A Set @ $2.05

Novak Djokovic will start this Wimbledon Semi-Final as a dominant favourite, but it should be noted Roberto Bautista-Agut has won his past two matches against Djokovic. I don’t expect him to make it three wins on the trot over the world number one, but he is playing excellent tennis and he can take a set from his rival.

Wimbledon Women’s Semi Finals Tips

Elina Svitolina vs Simona Halep
10.15pm

Elina Svitolina To Win @ $2.90

tolina and Simona Halep as the current market suggests. Svitolina has won three of the past four matches played between the pair and she gave Halep a genuine scare when they met at Doha earlier this year. The $2.90 currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Serena Williams vs Barbora Strycova
12.15am

Serena Williams To Win 2-0 @ $1.67

Serena Williams has an excellent chance to claim yet another Wimbledon title and she should prove far too strong for Barbora Strycova. Williams and Strycova have met on three occasions, all three of which have been at Grand Slams, and the American has never lost a set. The $1.67 for her to record a straight set win is great value.

Wimbledon Day 9 Tips

Novak Djokovic vs David Goffin
7.00pm

Under 30.5 Games @ $2.15

Novak Djokovic has recorded five wins from his six previous meetings with David Goffin and he has lost only three sets across these six clashes. Some of those victories have been nothing short of dominant and it really would not surprise to see Djokovic completely dismantle Goffin as he looks to make a statement before the semi-finals.

Sam Querrey vs Rafael Nadal
7.00pm

Sam Querrey To Win A Set @ $1.95

Rafael Nadal has won four of the five meetings between him and Sam Querrey, but Querrey has not been disgraced in any of these matches. Querrey has won at least one set in four of their five meetings and this is the first time that they have met on grass. Querrey is in excellent form and he is a good bet to steal at least one set from Nadal.

Guido Pella vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
7.00pm

Over 36.5 Games

This is a huge opportunity for both Guido Pella and Roberto Bautista-Agut and this has the chance to become an epic. Guido Pella has no Grand Slam pedigree and before this tournament he had won only two previous matches at Wimbledon, but he is playing in career best form. Roberto Bautista-Agut does deserve to be favourite, but these should be tight set and it would surprise if he either player was able to record a comfortable win.

Wimbledon Day 8 Tips

Alison Riske vs Serena Williams
10.15pm

Tie Break In Match @ $3.80

Alison Riske showed her quality with an impressive win over Ash Barty in the Fourth Round overnight and her game goes to another level on grass. Serena Williams obviously deserves to be favourite for this clash, but Riske will be no pushover and will prove tough to break on serve. The $3.80 available for there to be a tie break in the match is outstanding value.

Barbora Strycova vs Johanna Konta
12.15am

Barbora Strycova To Win @ $2.90

There is not as much between these two players as the current market suggests. Barbora Strycova won the only previous meeting between the duo and she comes into this clash on the back of a pair of strong wins over Kiki Bertens and Elise Mertens. Johanna Konta deserves to be favourite, but $2.90 is over the odds for a Strycova win.

Elina Svitolina vs Karolina Muchova
12.15am

Elina Svitolina To Win 2-0 @ $2.10

Karolina Muchova outlasted Karolina Pliskova in an absolute epic overnight and the quick back-up is not in her favour. Elina Svitolina recorded a very comfortable win over Muchova when they met at Doha earlier in the year and she has been one of the most profitable players on the WTA Tour, from a betting perspective, over the past 12 months.

Wimbledon Day 7 Tips

Elina Svitolina vs Petra Martic
8.15pm

Petra Martic To Win @ $2

Petra Martic is my outside pick to win this tournament and she is great value to beat Elina Svitolina at her current price of $2. Svitolina has won their past three meetings, but this is the first time that they have ever played on grass and I think that does give Martic the edge.

Shuai Zhang vs Dayna Yastremska
8.15pm

Shuai Zhang To Win @ $2.70

There should not be as much between this duo as the current betting market suggests. Shuai Zhang comes into this clash on the back of a dominant win over Caroline Wozniacki and she has dropped only 15 games during the tournament to date.

Karolina Muchova vs Karolina Pliskova
10.15pm

Karolina Pliskova To Beat Games Handicap (-5.5 Games) @ $1.95

Karolina Pliskova is playing some simply outstanding tennis and she should prove far too good for her countrywomen Karolina Muchova. Pliskova beat Muchova 6-3, 6-2 when the pair met at the Australian Open earlier this year and I expect to see a similar result in this Wimbledon Round 4 clash.

Wimbledon Day 6 Tips

Kei Nishikori vs Steve Johnson
8.15pm

Steve Johnson To Win @ $4.20

Kei Nishikori deserves to be favourite for this Wimbledon clash and he has won his four previous matches with Steve Johnson, but the American is still over the odds at his current price of $4.20. Johnson does have an excellent record on grass and Nishikori has reached the fourth round of the tournament only twice in his ten attempts.

 

Jo Wilfried Tsonga vs Rafael Nadal
12.15am

Over 38.5 Games

I expect Jo Wilfried Tsonga to give Rafael Nadal a genuine contest in their Wimbledon third round clash. Tsonga’s record against Nadal is not that bad and he won their most recent clash on grass as well as their most recent meeting at a Grand Slam. The Total Games line of 38.5 games is too low in what should be a service-orientated clash.

 

Alison Riske vs Belinda Bencic
8.15pm

Alison Riske To Win @ $2.80

There is an argument to be made that Alison Riske is playing in career best form and she is over the odds to upstage Belinda Bencic in this clash. Riske generally produces her best tennis on grass and Bencic does generally struggle to get past the third round at Grand Slams.

 

Wimbledon Day 5 Tips

Daniil Medvedev vs David Goffin
7.00pm

David Goffin To Win @ $2.05

Daniil Medvedev may have beaten David Goffin at the Australian Open earlier in the year, but there really isn’t a great deal between these two players. Goffin has a hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months that is superior to that of his rival and he has a much deeper Grand Slam pedigree.

Fernando Verdasco vs Thomas Fabbiano
7.00pm

Thomas Fabbiano To Win @ $2.30

Thomas Fabbiano comes into this clash on the back of a fighting victory over Ivo Karlovic, while Fernando Verdasco was very lucky to get past an injury Kyle Edmund. Fabbiano has a hold/break percentage on grass that is superior to that of Verdasco over the past 12 months and Verdasco has a poor overall record at Wimbledon – outside of his run to the quarter finals in 2013.

Karen Khachanov vs Roberto Bautista-Agut
7.00pm

Roberto Bautista-Agut To Win @ $1.80

Roberto Bautista-Agut beat Karen Khachanov at the Australian Open earlier this year and he has won the three previous matches between the pair played on either grass or hardcourt. He also has a superior hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months and should be shorter than his current odds.

Wimbledon Day 4 Tips

Kaia Kanepi vs Belinda Bencic
7.00pm

Kaia Kanepi To Win @ $3.80

There is not as much between Kaia Kanepi and Belinda Bencic as the current betting market suggests. Kanepi is coming off an impressive performance at the French Open and she has been a very consistent performer this season. It is tough to bet against Bencic, but I can’t get her as short as her current price.

Harriet Dart vs Beatriz Haddad Maia
7.00pm

Harriet Dart To Win @ $2.70

Beatriz Haddad Maia produced the best performance of her career to date to beat Garbine Muguruza in the opening round of the tournament, but I’m not sure that she can replicate that performance against Harriet Dart. Dart does play some good tennis on grass and she is over the odds at her current price.

Ash Barty vs Alison Van Uytvanck
7.00pm

Over 18.5 Games @ $1.90

Ash Barty should be able to record a fairly comfortably victory over Alison Van Uytvanck, but Van Uytvanck will not get completely rolled over. She does have a strong game on serve and she did push Barty to a first set tie-breaker when the pair met at the Canadian Masters 12 months ago.

Wimbledon Day 3 Tips

Benoit Paire vs Miomir Kecmanovic
7.00pm

Miomir Kecmanovic To Win @ $2.20

Miomir Kecmanovic made it to the final of the Antalya Open last weekend and it took Karen Khachanov to beat him in the Halle Open. In contrast, Benoit Paire was beaten in the first round at both these tournaments and his overall record on grass is not particularly strong. Kecmanovic is great value at his current price of $2.20.

Leonardo Mayer vs Hubert Hurkacz
10.15pm

Leonardo Mayer To Win @ $2.45

Leonardo Mayer did the job for us against Ernests Gulbis and he is good value again to account for Hubert Hurkacz. His hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Hurkacz over the past 12 months and Hurkacz does not have a great deal of experience playing on grass.

Marcel Granollers vs Ugo Humbert
1.15am

Marcel Granollers To Win @ $2.10

I’m not really sure why Marcel Granollers is not favourite for this Wimbledon clash with Ugo Humbert. Granollers has an excellent hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months and it is clearly superior to that of Ugo Humbert. Humbert has never made it past the second round of a Grand Slam and I am happy to take him on.

 

Wimbledon Day 2 Tips

Dominic Thiem vs Sam Querrey
7.00pm

Sam Querrey To Win @ $2.20

Dominic Thiem might be one of the best players in the world, but his record on grass is poor and he faces a tough draw in the form of Sam Querrey. Querrey has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of Thiem on grass over the past 12 months and he is great value at the current price of $2.25.

Nick Kyrgios vs Jordan Thompson
7.00pm

Jordan Thompson To Win @ $2.90

Nick Kyrgios does not seem to be in the best place either mentally or physically at the moment and he faces a tricky first round clash with Jordan Thompson. Thompson has been a consistent performer on the ATP Tour this season and his hold/break percentage on grass is better than that of Kyrgios over the past 12 months. Thompson can spring an upset at a nice price.

James Ward vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
7.00pm

James Ward To Win @ $2.45

Nikoloz Basilashvili has won only five of his past 16 matches on grass and his recent form has been very poor including a flat performance in the opening round of the French Open at Roland Garros. James Ward doesn’t have a great record at Grand Slams, but his hold/break percentage on grass is better than that of Basilashvili and he definitely appeals at the current odds of $2.45.

Wimbledon Day 1 Tips

Ernests Gulbis vs Leonardo Mayer
10.10pm

Leonardo Mayer To Win @ $1.95

Grass is not his best surface, but I still think that Leonardo Mayer should be favourite for this Wimbledon clash with Ernests Gulbis. Gulbis has won only one of his past ten matches on the ATP Tour and Mayer comes into this tournament on the back of an impressive effort at Roland Garros.

Pablo Cuevas vs Damir Dzumhur
1.10am

Damir Dzumhur To Win @ $2.10

Damir Dzumhur played some good tennis at the Antalya Open last weekend and his hold/break percentage on grass is clearly superior to that of Pablo Cuevas. Cuevas doesn’t have a great record on grass and I have happy to take him on in this Wimbledon clash at his current odds.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Marcel Granollers
3.10am

Marcel Granollers To Win @ $2.20

Lorenzo Sonego is coming off the first ATP Tour title of his career following an impressive effort at the Antalya Open and it will be interesting to see how he is able to back up that performance. He definitely has the talent to beat Marcel Granollers, but he will have tired legs and the Spaniard is no slouch on grass.

Friday 28th June

Miomir Kecmanovic vs Jordan Thompson
8.40pm

Jordan Thompson To Win 2-0 @ $2.45

Jordan Thompson has an excellent chance to claim a maiden ATP Tour title in the Turkish Airlines Open at Antalya. He has always produced his best tennis on grass and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Miomir Kecmanovic. He should be able to win this clash comfortably.

Kiki Bertens vs Karolina Pliskova
10.10pm

Kiki Bertens To Win @ $2.38

There is not as much between Kiki Bertens and Karolina Pliskova as the current betting market suggests. Bertens has been in career best-form during 2019 to date and she has a great record on grass. I have no knock on Pliskova, but I just can’t get her as short as her current odds.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Pablo Carreno-Busta
10.40pm

Lorenzo Sonego To Win 2-0 @ $2.70

Lorenzo Sonego did the job for us against Adrian Mannarino yesterday and he can secure a place in the final with a win over Pablo Carreno-Busta. Carreno-Busta outlasted Bernard Tomic in an epic in the quarter-final, but his overall record is grass and I am happy to take him on.

Thursday 27th June

Kyle Edmund vs Daniel Evans
2.10am

Kyle Edmund To Win 2-0 @ $2.60

Kyle Edmund was dominant against Cameron Norrie overnight and he is playing some excellent tennis in the lead-up to Wimbledon. His hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Daniel Evans and he comfortably won the only previous meeting between the pair.

Bernard Tomic vs Pablo Carreno-Busta
2.40am

Bernard Tomic To Win 2-0 @ $2.45

Bernard Tomic generally produces his best tennis on grass and he has an excellent opportunity to make a deep run at the Turkish Airlines Open in Antalya. Before this tournament, Pablo Carreno-Busta have never won an ATP Tour match on grass and his hold/break percentage on the surface is inferior to that of Tomic.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Adrian Mannarino
12.40am

Lorenzo Sonego To Win @ $2.88

There is not as much between these two players as the current market suggests. Adrian Mannarino has been in excellent form over the past fortnight, but his hold/break percentage on grass is only slightly inferior to that of Lorenzo Sonego. Sonego can pull an upset at the juicy odds of $2.88.

Wednesday 26th June

Daniel Evans vs Pierre-Hugues Herbert
12.10am

Pierre-Hugues Herbert To Win @ $2.20

Daniel Evans recorded an impressive win over Radu Albot yesterday, but I am keen to take him on against Pierre-Hugues Herbert tonight. Herbert has a strong record on grass and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of his rival. Herbert is over the odds at $2.20.

Gilles Simon vs Nicolas Jarry
2.10am

Gilles Simon To Win 2-0 @ $2.60

I am surprised that Gilles Simon is not a shorter-priced favourite for this clash with Nicolas Jarry. His hold/break percentage on grass is clearly superior to that of the Chilean and he comfortably accounted for him when they met at Wimbledon a couple of years ago. Simon should be able to cruise to victory.

Kyle Edmund vs Cameron Norrie
2.10am

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.30

Cameron Norrie did the job for us earlier in the week and he is a player that I can see making a deep run at Eastbourne this week. I think that he is better suited to grass than Kyle Edmund and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is superior to that of his countryman.

Tuesday 25th June

Daniel Evans vs Radu Albot
8.10pm

Radu Albot To Win @ $2.20

Radu Albot should be favourite for this Nature Valley International clash with Daniel Evans. Albot beat Evans when they met in the final of the Delray Beach Open earlier this year and his hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is superior to that of his rival.

Sam Stosur vs Sofia Kenin
8.10pm

Sam Stosur To Win @ $2.38

Sam Stosur is not the player that she once was, but she is always dangerous on clay and I think that she represents some value in this clash. Sofia Kenin is coming off a deep run at the French Open, where she beat Serena Williams, and a win at the Mallorca Open, so it would not surprise if she was a touch fatigued for this clash.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Prajnesh Gunneswaran
10.40pm

Lorenzo Sonego To Win 2-0 @ $2.20

Lorenzo Sonego has struggled badly in recent weeks, but he has had some tough draws and he should prove too strong for Prajnesh Gunneswaran. He showed his quality with some impressive performances at both the Miami Masters and Indiana Wells earlier this year and he has far more upside than his rival.

Monday 24th June

Hubert Hurkacz vs Marco Cecchinato
8.10pm

Marco Cecchinato To Win @ $2.88

Marco Cecchinato has not played a great deal of tennis on grass, but he has had an excellent 12 months and I’m not sure why he is such a clear outsider against Hubert Hurkacz. His hold/break percentage over the past 12 months is superior to that of Hurkacz and I am keen to take the Pole on.

Steve Johnson vs Reilly Opelka
10.10pm

Reilly Opelka To Win @ $2.25

Reilly Opelka is one of the biggest servers on the ATP Tour and it would not surprise to see him make a deep run at the Nature Valley International at Eastbourne. He played some awful tennis during the clay court season, but grass should be his best surface and I think that he has more upside than the veteran Steve Johnson.

Cameron Norrie vs Jeremy Chardy
2.10am

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.88

Cameron Norrie is simply outstanding value at his current quote of $2.88. He is a player that is constantly underrated by the market and his hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Jeremy Chardy. Chardy does not have a great record on grass and I am keen to take him on.

Friday 21st June

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Felix Auger Aliassime
11.10pm

Felix Auger Aliassime To Win @ $2.20

Felix Auger Aliassime beat Stefanos Tsitsipas when they met at Indian Wells earlier in the year and he is good value to do the same in this clash at Queen’s. Auger Aliassime comes into this clash on the back of a fighting win over Nick Kyrgios and he definitely has the firepower to trouble Tsitsipas on this surface.

Feliciano Lopez vs Milos Raonic
1.10am

1st Set To Go To A Tie Break @ $1.95

This is a match that has tie-breakers written all over it. Six of the seven matches played between the pair have had at least one tie break and this is the first time that they have met on grass. Serve will dominate and the $1.95 available for a first set tie break is simply outstanding value.

Roger Federer vs Roberto Bautista Agut
1.30am

Under 21.5 Games

Roger Federer has a simply outstanding record against Roberto Bautista Agut and this should be a walk in the park for the Swiss maestro. The duo have met on eight occasions and Federer has dropped only one set and has been taken to a tie break just twice. A 6-4, 6-4 victory for Federer looks likely.

Thursday 20th June

Richard Gasquet vs Roberto Bautista Agut
10.00pm

Richard Gasquet To Win @ $2.25

Roberto Bautista Agut is a player that I generally believe is underrated by the market, but I don’t think that he should be such a clear favourite ahead of this Noventi Open clash with Richard Gasquet. There really isn’t a great deal between the two players and their record on grass is basically identical. The $2.25 currently available for Gasquet appeals.

Steve Johnson vs Alexander Zverev
12.00am

Steve Johnson To Win @ $2.50

Alexander Zverev deserves to be favourite for this clash with Steve Johnson, but the American veteran does appeal at his current odds. Johnson generally does produce his best tennis on grass and his hold/break percentage is only slightly inferior to that of Zverev. He can give the German a serious scare.

Stan Wawrinka vs Nicolas Mahut
11.10pm

Nicolas Mahut To Win @ $2.63

Stan Wawrinka may have gotten the job done in his opening match of the tournament against Daniel Evans, but he is still far too short for this clash with Nicolas Mahut. Mahut has regressed somewhat over the past 18 months, but he is still an excellent player on grass and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is superior to that of Wawrinka.

Wednesday 19th June

Stan Wawrinka vs Daniel Evans
9.10pm

Daniel Evans To Win @ $2

Daniel Evans generally produces his best form on grass in England and he is a genuine chance of upsetting Stan Wawrinka at Queen’s. Wawrinka doesn’t have a particularly strong record on grass and Evans’ hold/break percentage over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of his rival.

Jeremy Chardy vs Mikhail Kukushkin
9.10pm

Mikhail Kukushkin To Win @ $2.15

It is a surprise that Mikhail Kukushkin is not favourite for this Queen’s clash with Jeremy Chardy. Kukushkin has won three of the past four matches between the pair and he beat Chardy comfortably at the Monte Carlo Masters earlier this year. Throw in the fact that his hold/break percentage on grass is superior to that of the Frenchmen and he is a great bet at $2.15.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Felix Auger Aliassime
3.10am

Felix Auger Aliassime To Win @ $2.15

Betting against Grigor Dimitrov has been a profitable betting play all season long on the ATP Tour and he is a false favourite for this clash with Felix Auger Aliassime. Auger Aliassime is one of the most exciting young players on the ATP Tour and his hold/break percentage on grass is clearly superior to that of Dimitrov.

Monday 17th June

Matthew Ebden vs Radu Albot
8.00pm

Radu Albot To Win @ $2.20

There is not as much between Matthew Ebden and Radu Albot as the current betting market suggests. Albot beat Ebden when they met at the Miami Masters earlier this season and his hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is superior to that of the Australian. The $2.20 currently available is over the odds.

Steve Johnson vs Philipp Kohlschreiber
8.00pm

Steve Johnson To Win @ $2.25

Steve Johnson is another outsider that represents good value in the Noventi Open in Halle. He has generally produced his best tennis on quicker surfaces and his hold/break percentage on grass over the past 12 months is superior to that of Philipp Kohlschreiber. Johnson hasn’t had the best year to date, but he is worth a gamble at the current price.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert vs Gael Monfils
10.00pm

Gael Monfils To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

I am surprised that Gael Monfils is not a more dominant favourite for his Noventi Open clash with Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Monfils has a hold/break percentage on grass that is clearly superior to that of Herbert and he has won five of his past seven matches on grass. The $2.25 for him to win in straight sets is an excellent bet.

Friday 14th June

Denis Kudla vs Matteo Berrettini
7.30pm

Denis Kudla To Win @ $2.63

Denis Kudla did the job for us against Gael Monfils yesterday and there is no reason that he can’t win again against Matteo Berrettini. Kudla has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of Berrettini and he has won two of the three previous matches played between the pair. $2.63 is well and truly over the odds.

Jan Lennard Struff vs Lucas Pouille
9.00pm

Lucas Pouille To Win @ $2

I am shocked that Lucas Pouille is not a clear favourite for this Mercedes Open clash with Jan Lennard Struff. Pouille not only has a superior hold/break percentage to Struff, but he has won the three previous matches between the pair – including two wins on grass. $2 is a huge price.

Marton Fucsovics vs Milos Raonic
1.30am

Milos Raonic To Win 2-0 @ $2.10

Milos Raonic recorded a dominant win over Marton Fucsovics when they met at this tournament 12 months ago and he should do the same again in this contest. Fucsovics has played well at this event, but his overall record on grass is poor and it would be a surprise if he is able to handle the big serve of Raonic on this service.

Thursday 13th June

David Goffin vs Pierre-Hugues Herbert
7.00pm

Pierre-Hugues Herbert To Win @ $3

Grass has never been a strength for David Goffin and his record on the surface is extremely poor. His hold/break percentage over the past 12 months is clearly inferior to that of Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who arguably produces his best tennis on grass. The $3 currently available for the Frenchmen is well and truly over the odds.

Matteo Berrettini vs Karen Khachanov
9.00pm

Karen Khachanov To Win 2-0 @ $2.75

It is a surprise that Karen Khachanov is not a more dominant favourite for this clash with Matteo Berrettini. Berrettini has a very poor record on grass on the ATP Tour, while Khachanov has won ten of his 14 matches on the surface. He will have too much power for his rival and can cruise to a straight set win.

Gael Monfils vs Denis Kudla
7.00pm

Denis Kudla To Win @ $2.75

He is far from the most consistent player in the world, but Denis Kudla is capable of excellence on his day and he generally does produce his best tennis on grass. Gael Monfils has struggled on grass over the past couple of years and Kudla actually has a superior hold/break percentage over the past 12 months.

Wednesday 12th June

Alex De Minaur vs Andreas Seppi
9.00pm

Andreas Seppi To Win @ $2.50

Andreas Seppi is a player that is generally underrated by the market and the recent form of Alex De Minaur has not been particularly strong. Seppi has a hold/break percentage of 101% on grass over the past 12 months, while De Minaur had a figure of less than 96%. There is no reason that Seppi should be such juicy odds.

Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Marton Fucsovics
7.00pm

Nikoloz Basilashvili To Win @ $2.50

There is nowhere near as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests. Marton Fucsovics has had an excellent start to the year, but his record on grass is very poor and he has won only one of his seven matches on the surface on the ATP Tour. Nikoloz Basilashvili has a superior hold/break percentage on grass and is well and truly over the odds at the current price.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Milos Raonic
8.30pm

Milos Raonic To Win @ $2.10

I don’t really understand why Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is favourite for this clash. He hasn’t played a match on grass over the past 12 months and he has lost his past four matches against Milos Raonic. Raonic has won nine of his past 11 matches on grass and he is simply outstanding value at his current odds of $2.10.

Tuesday 11th June

Denis Shapovalov vs Jan-Lennard Struff
11.00pm

Denis Shapovalov To Win @ $1.80

I am surprised that Denis Shapovalov is not a shorter-priced favourite for this clash with Jan-Lennard Struff in the Mercedes Cup in Stuggart. Struff has beaten Shapovalov twice this year, but both of those wins were on clay and Shapovalov does have a clearly superior record on grass. He can return to winning form again his rival.

Robin Haase vs Ugo Humbert
10.30pm

Robin Haase To Win 2-0 @ $2.63

Ugo Humbert has not played a match on grass on the ATP Tour and his form on grass on the Challenger Tour has not been particularly strong. Grass is not Robin Haase’s strongest surface, but he should still prove too strong for Humbert and the $2.63 available for him to win 2-0 is well and truly over the odds.

Feliciano Lopez vs Lucas Pouille
9.00pm

Feliciano Lopez To Win @ $1.91

If this match was played on any other surface, Lucas Pouille would go into it as a deserving favourite, but the fact that it is on grass does give Feliciano Lopez the edge. His record on grass throughout his career is excellent and he has a hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months that is superior to that of Pouille.

French Open Day 15 – Sunday 9th June

Dominic Thiem vs Rafael Nadal
11.00pm

Nadal 3-0 @ $2.10

You know the old debate about who wins a fight between a shark and a bear and it comes down to whether the fight is in the water or on land? Well Nadal playing on clay is just like the shark in the water (or the bear on land) where you would expect them to rip the other one apart. He’s dropped one set in the entire French Open and looked borderline unstoppable when dismantling Nishikori and Federer in the last two rounds. Thiem has had a fantastic fortnight in his own right and perhaps now Whoopi Goldberg has heard of him but, let’s be fair, Nadal is just at another level entirely. This one might not take more than a couple of hours as Nadal wins the French Open… again.

French Open Day 13 – Friday 7th June

Johanna Konta vs Marketa Vondrousova
7.00pm

Konta to Win @ $1.67

Just like in the last round, Brit Johanna Konta takes on an opponent she defeated in Rome earlier this year. On that occasion she defeated Vondrousova in three sets, although the unseeded Czech has had a fantastic run in Paris so far, not dropping a set on her way to the semi final. After knocking off three seeded players, she will want to make Konta her fourth top 32 scalp but I’m going to back the Brit to get through to the final.

Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal
7.00pm

Over 3.5 Sets @ $2.10

If a clash between these two titans of the modern era isn’t enough to get you excited, well perhaps nothing will be. Nadal goes into this game as an almost unbackable favourite head to head, but how can you count out the Swiss maestro? Well Nadal has won all five meetings at the French Open but has only beaten Federer in straight sets once. Another reason why this should go over 3.5 sets is this is the first time the two will face off on the court since October 2017 so there could be a bit of a feeling out process.

French Open Day 12 – Thursday 6th June

Ashleigh Barty vs Madison Keys
8.00pm

Ashleigh Barty to Win @ $1.57

We’re going to stick on the Barty train and back her to take another step forward against Madison Keys here. Barty showed some excellent adaptability playing through some tough conditions in the last round and closed the match with a 6-0 win in the third set. Keys is having a pretty strong tournament herself and could very well push Barty here so I’ll just stick to the head to head market and play it safe.

Simona Halep vs Amanda Anisimova
8.00pm

Halep -6.5 Games @ $2.50

17 year old Amanda Anisimova has had a great run, getting to the quarter finals without dropping a set and lost only three games in her Round of 16 clash. Simona Halep will be a much tougher test however and appears to be playing her way into top form at the right part of the tournament, losing just one game in her Round of 16 match. Halep should win this one pretty comfortably and I’m happy to take her to win seven or more games more than her opponent.

Dominic Thiem vs Karen Khachanov
10.30pm

Thiem to Win 3-0 @ $2.38

Thiem has already made plenty of headlines during the French Open for his run in with Serena Williams but he’s putting together an impressive run. He has a fantastic chance to get to the semis here when he takes on Russian 10th seed Karen Khachanov and is a heavy favourite to advance. Khachanov did win the last meeting between these players but it’s hard to justify backing against Thiem in the form he’s in.

French Open Day 11 – Wednesday 5th June

WASH OUT

French Open Day 10 – Tuesday 4th June

Sloane Stephens vs Johanna Konta
10.00pm

Konta to Win @ $2.20

This should be an excellent match between two very even players and at that price, Konta seems like an excellent value play. She has beaten Stephens twice already this year including a win in three sets in Rome so she knows how to beat the seventh seeded American. For someone who had never exited the first round at Roland Garros before, Konta is enjoying a fantastic run and I’m happy to back her to go on with the job here.

Stan Warwrinka vs Roger Federer
10.00pm

Federer 3-0 @ $2.75

These two have taken very different paths to get to the quarters here, Federer has cruised through the tournament in straight sets while Warwrinka has really had to battle, especially in his last two matches. While he defeated Dimitrov in straight sets, they all went to tie breakers and he needed all five sets to get past sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last round. Warwrinka was the last person to defeat Federer at Roland Garros at this stage back in 2015. That was also the last time Warwrinka beat Federer and since then, Federer has won four of the six meetings in straight sets.

Kei Nishikori vs Rafael Nadal
12.00am

Over 3.5 Sets @ $3.25

In essence, I’m backing Nishikori to take a set off Nadal here before the inevitable outcome. As much fun as it has been backing Nishikori throughout the tournament, his run will likely end here but having Over 3.5 sets at this price is pretty good all things considered. Nadal has only dropped one set all tournament but that did come in the other match he had against a seeded opponent.

French Open Day 9 – Monday 3rd June

Katerina Siniakova vs Madison Keys
7.00pm

Keys to Win 2-1 @ $3.75

Siniakova and Keys kick off the second week of action in Paris with their Round of 16 clash. It’s been a real struggle for Keys getting through to this stage being taken to three sets in her last two matches but she can compete on this surface. Siniakova is no pushover either, knocking out Naomi Osaka in her last match and is enjoying her deepest run in a Grand Slam singles tournament, but I think it will end here. There’s a notable gap in class between these two and I think Keys will win, but she’ll drop a set.

Dominic Thiem vs Gael Monfils
11.00pm

Over 4.5 Sets @ $3.40

Monfils is loving life in Paris right now, he’s cruised to the Round of 16 without dropping a set but he’s coming into a tough assignment against the fourth seeded Thiem. They have met seven times in their careers but only completed four of those matches with Monfils defaulting three times. In a bizarre trend, Thiem has dropped the second set in every single one of his matches so far. I’m backing this one to go the distance between the two as the hot hand takes on the better player. If I had to back a winner I’d be looking at Thiem but this will likely go down to the wire.

Karen Khachanov vs Juan Martin del Porto
12.00am

Over 39.5 Games @ $1.83

Aside from a 6-0 outlier in the second round, the Russian tenth seed has cruised through the rest of the French Open to set up this intriguing clash with del Potro. These two met three times in 2018 and every set was a grind with del Potro claiming seven of the eight sets played between the two of them. Four of those went to tie breaks and three more were decided by a score of 6-4 so we’re looking at what should be a pretty tight affair.

French Open Day 7 – Saturday 1st June

Naomi Osaka vs Katerina Siniakova
7.00pm

Osaka to Win 2-0 @ $1.83

After battling by Azarenka in the second round I’m happy to back Osaka to pick up her first straight sets win of the tournament when she takes on Siniakova. After all, she dropped just four games when they met in Qatar last year and I do think there’s a significant gap between these two players.

Ash Barty vs Andrea Petkovic
7.00pm

Barty to Win @ $1.57

Generally on these I try to stick to plays with a bit more value but I found myself gravitating towards Barty here. She’s in phenomenal form and a real chance at a deep run so why not look to get on board with her here.

Dominic Thiem vs Pablo Cuevas
7.00pm

Over 3.5 Sets @ $1.83

This is another one of those “value add” plays as we head into the second week of the tournament. Both of Thiem’s matches have gone to four sets so far and Cuevas might be his toughest test yet. I still like the fourth seed to go through here but I’m not 100% sold on it being an easy task.

French Open Day 6 – Friday 30th May

Elise Mertens vs Anastasija Sevastova
7.00pm

Mertens to Win @ $2.00

This clash between the 20th and 12th seeds in the womens draw has the makings of a very even matchup, which is why I’m going to take the (approximately) even money value play. Mertens has made at least the Round of 32 in the last five Grand Slams and with how comfortably she dispatched Parry in the last round, I’m backing her to continue that form here.

Kei Nishikori vs Laslo Djere
9.00pm

Nishikori -5.5 Games @ $1.73

I’m going to go back to the Nishikori well here, he’s been a profitable play so far and I think he’ll pick up another win against the 31st seed Djere. It will be the first time these two have faced off but I’m happy to ride the experience of the Japanese star. While the Serbian has build an impressive clay court season, I just can’t get away from Nishikori. He’s a bit short in the head to head market and I’m not totally confident he’ll win in straight sets but his return game should be able to generate enough breaks to cover this handicap.

 

French Open Day 5 – Thursday 29th May

Danielle Rose Collins v Ashleigh Barty
9.00pm

Barty to Win 2-0 @ $1.57

It’s a fairly safe pick to start off the Thursday Tips but when it’s an Aussie you don’t mind getting on board with this. It’s her second straight American opponent and Collins shouldn’t offer too much more resistance than her first round opponent here. After reaching the quarters at the Australian Open this year, she’s primed for another run in Paris and I’m happy to back her in here.

Priscilla Hon vs Madison Keys
1.00am

Under 18.5 Games @ $1.80

Aussie wild card Hon got past Timea Babos in the first round but faces a much tougher test in the 14th seed Keys here. The American hasn’t had a great European clay court season but looks like she kicked into gear in the first round dropping just three games on her way through. I’m expecting a similarly one sided affair in this one as Keys looks to repeat her semi final appearance from 2018.

Martin Klizan vs Lucas Pouille
2.00am

Pouille to Win 3-0 @ $2.75

There’s plenty of reasons to back against Klizan here, but the big one is that all year, he’s won just a single set against a seeded opponent and only two of his matches have not been decided in straight sets. Pouille handled Simone Bolelli in the first round in straight sets and while he might have to battle through a couple of sets, he should get by his Slovakian opponent in straight sets.

French Open Day 4 – Wednesday 29th May

Sloane Stephens vs Sara Sorribes Tormo
7.00pm

Under 18.5 Games @ $2.10

Stephens is in the middle of an excellent clay court season posting a 7-3 record so far and getting through her opening round match in straight sets. She did need a second set tie break but having been off for 10 days in the lead up to Roland Garros, I’ll put that down to rust. This will be a big step up for her opponent who needed three sets to get by Alison Van Uytvanck. I’m also not overly confident in a serve that produced seven double faults and no aces in the first round and that should be something Stephens should take advantage of.

Jennifer Brady vs Polonna Hercog
7.00pm

Brady to Win @ $2.10

Both of these players battled through their first round matches, going the distance although Hercog went to 8-6 upsetting 32nd seed Aliaksandra Sasnovich. Brady on the other hand only needed a 7-5 scoreline in the final set to get past Ivana Jorovic. This seems like a clash that has two very evenly matched players so I’ll take the value play and go for the slight underdog Brady as a value play.

Kei Nishikori vs Jo Wilfried Tsonga
9.00pm

Nishikori to Win 3-1 @ $3.75

This will be the second meeting between these two at Roland Garros, the first coming in 2015 when Tsonga won in five sets. Both players careers have taken very different trajectories since then with Nishikori emerging as one of the best players in the world while Tsonga’s is in its twilight. I like Tsonga to get a set off Nishikori here but the Japanese star is in great form and I like him to win overall.

French Open Day 2 – Monday 27th May

Alex De Minaur vs Bradley Klahn
7.00pm

De Minaur to Win 3-0 @ $2.10

Backing any Aussie at Roland Garros can be a bit of a crap shoot but De Minaur has a real edge in quality over Kahn, who can be politely described as a journeyman. The American hasn’t made the French Open in five years and De Minaur will have no better chance to win his first match at the tournament right here.

Caroline Wozniacki vs Veronika Kudermetova
7.00pm

Wozniacki to Win 2-0 @ $2.50

Injuries mean you might have to think twice before backing Wozniacki here but it’s not enough to scare me off her tonight. I’m backing the quality she has rather than the potential of her opponent and taking the value play on offer. With the coaching of Francesa Schiavone helping prepare her for the clay court season, I’m taking Wozniacki to get through in straight sets.

Novak Djokovic vs Hubert Hurkacz
11.00pm

Under 29.5 Games @ $1.83

The third and final tip for Day 2 at Roland Garros is a fairly straightforward selection, Djokovic to cruise through the first round. The last time he dropped a set at this stage was back in 2010 and that isn’t likely to change here. Assuming you’re as confident as I am he’s going through in straight sets, you’re essentially backing him to lose 11 or fewer games which seems pretty good to me. That’s been the case in the last five first rounds for Djokovic.

French Open Day 1 – Sunday 26th May

Alexi Popyrin vs Ugo Humbert
7.00pm

Humbert to Win @ $1.91

The French Open gets underway with Aussie Wild Card Alexi Popyrin taking on local hope Ugo Humbert. Neither player has had a great build up to this clash with Humbert losing his last five and Popyrin his last three. Unfortunately that same factor that propelled him to the Australian Open Round of 32 in January is the same reason I’m backing Humbert in this case, the home town factor. It’s his first crack at the French Open and I like his chances of getting home here.

Naomi Osaka vs Anna Schmiedlova
7.00pm

Under 17.5 Games @ $2.20

To find some value bets in the early stages of a Grand Slam featuring big name players, you need to dig down into the markets. In this case, you’re essentially backing Osaka to comfortably cruise through her opening round clash here since that’s the most likely way this match will have less that 17.5 games. She’s won three of her last four games in straight sets but did retire from the Italian Open so does have that concern hanging over her head. Either way, she’s the top seed in this tournament for a reason and I’m happy to back her to comfortably account for Schmiedlova.

Kei Nishikori vs Quentin Hayes
7.00pm

Nishikori to Win 3-0 @ $1.83

Nishikori’s game seems to suit the clay court and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him make a very deep run here in Paris. He has lost just once to an unseeded player here at Roland Garros and that came back in 2014. Since then he’s won his last four first round matches dropping just one set in that time and I think he has way too much quality for Hayes here.

Friday 24th May

Nicolas Jarry v Radu Albot
10.00pm

Radu Albot to Win @ $2.00

This one is the literal definition of a coin flip matchup in the Geneva semi-finals. For that reason I’ll back Albot to win as the underdog and therefore the value play here. He has looked pretty impressive throughout this whole tournament, losing just one set in a tiebreaker and has gotten better over the last week. Not only that, he will be Jarry’s toughest opponent all week who, after upsetting Matt Ebden in the Round of 32, hasn’t really been tested.

Benoit Paire vs Taylor Harry Fritz
10.30pm

Benoit Paire to Win @ $2.20

Over to Lyon for the next two tips, and I’ll start off with another upset, taking the Frenchman Paire to reach his second final of the clay court season. He took out the title in Marrakech last month and is taking on an opponent who is a 50-50 shot on clay. After getting by Denis Shapovalov in the quarters I have to think he’s got the form to take care of Fritz here and as an upset play, it’s worth a shot.

Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Felix Auger Aliassime
12.30am

Nikoloz Basilashvili to Win @ $2.25

A third and final value play backing an upset in the other Lyon semi final. Basilashvili is the top seed in the tournament and dispatched two Frenchmen on his way to the semis. These two met two months ago in Miami but that was on a hard court and the Georgian prefers the slower surfaces, which is why he’s done so well here in Lyon.

Thursday 23rd May

Daria Gavrilova vs Chloe Pacquet
7.00pm

Pacquet to Win @ $2.63

It’s been a rough year for Gavrilova, winning a grand total of two singles matches all year and losing five in a row. Pacquet on the other hand is enjoying a decent if not good clay court season and looks to be fantastic value here, if you don’t mind backing against the Aussie.

Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
11.00pm

Tsonga to Win @ $1.73

I got a little bit too confident with Tsonga yesterday but thankfully, taking on the tournament’s top seed has him at a price where he’s a worthwhile play in the head to head market. It’s the first meeting between these two since 2017 which went the distance but I’m impressed with how he looked getting past Diez last round and whether it’s in two sets or three, I’ve got confidence in his ability to move on.

Radu Albot vs Damir Dzumhur
11.20pm

Dzumhur to Win @ $1.80

Not much time to celebrate for Dzumhur having knocked off Warwinka in the last round in Geneva, he has a very quick turnaround to face Radu Albot tonight. You could make a case for both sides here but I’m going to take the hot hand of Dzumhur to advance once again.

Wednesday 22nd May

Ugo Humbert vs Denis Shapovalov
7.00pm

Under 21.5 Games @ $2.10

The Canadian third seed has not enjoyed a great season on clay so far, posting a meagre 1-4 record so far with his one win coming in Rome last week. He takes on a French opponent who is probably the easiest out he has faced in a couple of months and his best chance to get some momentum heading into the French Open. Not only am I happy to back Shapovalov in straight sets, I think this will be a pretty one-sided affair so I’ll take the better value under play.

Steven Diez v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
11.00pm

Tsonga 2-0 @ $1.62

Tsonga is a personal favourite of mine, especially in these sorts of tournaments where his quality can still shine through. The Frenchman has a slightly lower than average winning rate on clay (63.7%) but he should still be able to take care of a guy whose career can be politely described as “journeyman”.

Damir Dzumhur vs Stan Warwrinka
2.00am

Wawrinka 2-0 @ $1.80

After a surprise early exit in Rome, Warwrinka has his last shot to get back in form before the French Open here. The head to head is split at 1-1 although the market has the Swiss second seed as a pretty heavy favourite an I’ll follow the standard practice of backing the better player.

Tuesday 21st May

Joao Susa vs Leonardo Mayer
8.00pm

Over 2.5 Sets @ $2.20

This will be the first time these two have faced off since July 2016  where Sousa emerged victorious in straight sets. The market has this as a pretty even contest and that’s why I’m backing a match that will go the distance here, especially at over even money. I’ll give the slight edge to Sousa in the head to head market if I had to take one side but I’d rather stay out of that.

Alex Zverev v Ernests Gulbis
2.00am

Zverev 2-0 @ $1.67

Gulbis knocked Zverev out of Wimbeldon last year but with this clash coming on clay, and with Gulbis horrendously out of form, I’m backing an easy win for the German top seed. Zverev isn’t exactly cruising himself though, getting upset by a wild card in Rome last week. Even so, it’s hard to have any faith in Gulbis to do a lot of anything so I’ll run with the higher ranked player.

Felix Auger Aliassime vs John Millman
2.00am

Aliassime 2-1 @ $3.75

It hasn’t been an ideal build up to Paris for Millman and it’s pretty clear to see why clay is not his favourite surface. He’s lost five matches on the surface this year, including a difficult defeat in Rom to qualifier Cameron Norrie, while winning just three. This will be his first meeting with the 18 year old Canadian who made it to the Round of 16 in Barcelona. I do give Millman something for his experience and expect this to go to a deciding set, however the youngster should be able to get over the line here.

Italian Open Tips – Thursday May 16th

Johanna Konta vs Sloane Stephens
6.00pm

Over 2.5 Sets @ $2.25

If you told me that Konta could spring an upset over Stephens here I wouldn’t be at all surprised. The British right hander swept Stephens out of Brisbane in straight sets in January but isn’t as strong on clay, boasting an 13-14 record on that surface since 2016 compared to Stephens 25-10 record in that time. Stephens is in much better form coming off a semi final appearance in Madrid but I’m thinking we could be in for a tight battle that goes the distance. I’m leaning towards Stephens winning but the value is on a longer match.

Marin Cilic vs Jan-Lennard Struff
7.15pm

Over 2.5 Sets @ $2.38

This will be the fourth meeting between these two players and the second in the space of 10 days. Cilic got the better of Struff in Madrid last week, but only just needing all three sets to get through to the Round of 16. In fact, all three meetings between these two have gone the distance with the winner of the first set going on to lose the match. It seems like despite their relative disparity in terms of rankings, these two match up together fairly well. If I had to back one player I’d take Cilic even after his withdrawal from Madrid but for that reason, I’ll stick to backing the over.

Taylor Harry Fritz vs Kei Nishikori
7.20pm

Nishikori To Win 2-0 @ $1.80

The Japanese veteran is a short priced favourite to go through to the Quarter Finals here and I’m happy to jump on board by backing him to win in straight sets. He loves the slow surfaces, boasting a 70.4% career winning rate on that surface, better than his career average of 68%. He has defeated Fritz in straight sets both times they have met including on clay in Barcelona last month. This one is pretty straightforward logic, back the better player.

Italian Open Tips – Tuesday 14th May

Francis Tiafoe vs Joao Sousa
7.00pm

Tiafoe To Win 2-0 @ $2.10

I’m going to go on a bit of a limb here and take Tiafoe to win this in straight sets, even though clay isn’t his strongest surface. He is prone to a first round exit here and there but I do think he can put in a better performance than the last time these two met.

Daniil Medvedev vs Nick Kyrgios
7.00pm

Nick Kyrgios To Win @ $3.00

I look at this matchup and am left to wonder how Kyrgios is at $3 here? Yes, betting on him at any given time carries a pretty decent risk but even so, this seems like a much more even matchup. He has looked pretty good in Acapulco and Miami and now has just this tournament to get ready for the French Open. This is a real value play here but why not take him on and see what can happen.

David Goffin vs Stan Warinka
7.00pm

Over 2.5 Sets @ $2.25

Stan the man has a winning record just shy of 67% on clay and is in better form this season than Goffin but just looking at the head to head numbers, I think this might be a close one. In four meetings these two have gone to a tiebreaker in five of ten sets and had another two have a final score of 7-5. In short, expect a decisive set here and take the value play which looks over the odds.

Italian Open Tips – Monday 13thMay

 

Pablo Carreno Busta vs Denis Shapovalov
7.00pm

Denis Shapovalov To Win @ $1.80

Neither of these two have won a match on clay so far in 2019 so the good news is that someone is breaking their duck here. Busta won the lone head to head matchup back in 2017, however Shapovalov is the better player right now. I’ll take him to win at his current price with some confidence.

Madrid Masters Tips – Friday 10th May

Roger Federer vs Dominic Thiem
1.00am

Roger Federer To Win @ $2.75

Dominic Thiem actually has a positive head-to-head record against Roger Federer and Federer hasn’t play much tennis on clay in recent years, but I still can’t fathom Federer being such long odds against somebody that isn’t Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal. You simply don’t get opportunities to back Federer at this price, so you need to take advantage.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Alexander Zverev
3.30am

Alexander Zverev To Win @ $2.10

This is an intriguing clash between two players that are set to be mainstays in the top five for the next decade. There really isn’t a great deal between them, but Alexander Zverev does have a superior hold/break percentage on clay than Stefanos Tsitsipas and he does represent a hint of value at $2.10.

Belinda Bencic vs Simona Halep
10.30pm

Belinda Bencic To Win @ $3.75

There is no player in better form on the WTA Tour than Belinda Bencic and she is well and truly over the odds at her current price of $3.75. It is always tough to bet against Simona Halep on clay and she does deserve to be favourite, but Bencic is in such incredible form that I am happy to ride it with her.

Madrid Masters Tips – Thursday 9th May

Simona Halep vs Ash Barty
8.00pm

Ash Barty To Win @ $3

Ash Barty has shown signs of improving on clay this season and I’m happy to gamble on her recording the biggest win of her career to date on the surface. Barty did beat Halep when they met at the Sydney International earlier in the year and, including the Fed Cup, she has won her past 11 matches on the trot.

Naomi Osaka vs Belinda Bencic
10.00pm

Belinda Bencic To Win @ $2

Naomi Osaka may be the number one player in the world, but she is still a work in progress on clay and I am happy to take her on in this clash with Belinda Bencic at the Madrid Masters. Bencic has been one of the form players on the WTA Tour this season and I think that she should be favourite for this clash.

Kei Nishikori vs Stan Wawrinka
12.00am

Kei Nishikori To Win @ $2.10

Stan Wawrinka got the job done against Guido Pella yesterday, but I am still happy to take him on again in this clash with Kei Nishikori at the Madrid Masters. Nishikori has a hold/break percentage on clay that is clearly superior to that of Wawrinka and I do believe that he is the superior player between the two on clay.

Madrid Masters Tips – Wednesday 8th May

Marton Fucsovics vs Gael Monfils
10.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.63

Marton Fucsovics did the job for us against David Goffin yesterday and I believe that he can continue his winning ways against Gael Monfils. Monfils has always been a consistent performer on clay and Fucsovics does have a superior hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months.

Stan Wawrinka vs Guido Pella
10.00pm

Guido Pella To Win @ $2.38

Taking on Stan Wawrinka is always a profitable betting play on the ATP Tour, long-term, and Guido Pella represents great value at his current quote. He comes into this clash on the back of an impressive win over Daniil Medvedev and his hold/break percentage on clay is superior to that of Wawrinka.

Hubert Hurkacz vs Lucas Pouille
10.00pm

Hubert Hurkacz To Win @ $1.80

Hubert Hurkacz  beat Lucas Pouille when they met at Indian Wells earlier this year and he is even better suited in this clash on clay at the Madrid Masters. His hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of his rival and I expect him to get the job done.

Madrid Masters Tips – Tuesday 7th May

Guido Pella vs Daniil Medvedev
8.00pm

Guido Pella To Win @ $2.63

Daniil Medvedev is a player with plenty of promise, but he has still never really put it altogether on clay and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is just over 100%. In contrast, Guido Pella produces his best tennis on clay and his hold/break percentage is 107.4%. He is capable of recording an upset win at juicy odds.

David Goffin vs Marton Fucsovics
8.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.38

Marton Fucsovics is a player that is consistently underrated by the market and he is capable of upsetting David Goffin in this Madrid Masters clash. His hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is actually superior to that of Goffin and I think that he still has more upside to improve on the surface.

Diego Schwartzman vs Marco Cecchinato
10.00pm

Marco Cecchinato To Win @ $1.91

Marco Cecchinato has been in outstanding form on Clay this season and he should be a narrow favourite for this intriguing clash with Diego Schwartzman. He beat Schwartzman 6-2, 6-1 when they met in the final at Buenos Aires earlier this year and I am confident that he can get the job done once again.

BMW Open Tips – Saturday 4th May

Marco Cecchinato vs Christian Garin
9.30pm

Marco Cecchinato To Win @ $1.80

There is a great deal between these two players and it is no real surprise that there is very little between the pair in betting. You simply can’t knock the recent form of Marco Cecchinato and he is one of the form players on the ATP Tour. He won the previous meeting between the pair comfortably and he can do so again this BMW Open Semi-Final.

Matteo Berrettini vs Robert Bautista Agut
11.00pm

Matteo Berrettini To Win @ $2.20

Matteo Berrettini did the job for us yesterday and we are confident that he can continue his excellent form. His hold/break percentage on clay is superior to that of Robert Bautista Agut over the past 12 months and he won their only previous meeting on clay at the final of Gstaad last year.

Estoril Open Tips – Saturday 4th May

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs David Goffin
12.00am

David Goffin To Win @ $2.38

This is an intriguing clash between Stefanos Tsitsipas and David Goffin and there isn’t as much between as the current betting market suggests. Goffin actually has a superior hold/break percentage on clay than that of Tsitsipas and he won their only previous meeting on clay at the Monte Carlo Masters 12 months ago.

BMW Open Tips – Friday 3rd May

Marco Cecchinato vs Marton Fucsovics
7.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.50

Marco Cecchinato might be one of the form clay courters on the ATP Tour, but there is not as much between these players as the current market suggests. Marton Fucsovics actually has a superior hold/break percentage on clay than that of Cecchinato and the Hungarian is well and truly over the odds at $2.50.

Matteo Berrettini vs Philipp Kohlschreiber
11.30pm

Matteo Berrettini To Win @ $2.25

I am keen to take on Philipp Kohlschreiber at the BMW Open once again. Matteo Berrettini has a hold/break percentage on clay courts that is clearly superior to that of Kohlschreiber and I do believe that he still has more upside. He has now won seven matches in a row and he is developing into one of the best clay courters on tour.

Guido Pella vs Roberto Bautista Agut
1.00am

Guido Pella To Win @ $2.25

Guido Pella is a player that is often underrated by the market on clay and I think that he should be narrow favourite for this clash with Roberto Bautista Agut. Pella has a hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months that is superior to that of Agut and I am happy to take a gamble at the current price.

BMW Open Tips – Thursday 2nd May

Philipp Kohlschreiber vs Karen Khachanov
10.00pm

Karen Khachanov To Win @ $2.25

It is somewhat of a surprise to me that Karen Khachanov will go into this BMW Open clash with Philipp Kohlschreiber as an outsider. Khachanov has a slightly superior hold/break percentage on clay than that of his rival and there is no doubt that he has more upside to improve on the surface.

Estoril Open Tips – Thursday 2nd May

Pablo Cuevas vs Filippo Baldi
10.00pm

Pablo Cuevas To Win 2-0 @ $1.73

Pablo Cuevas should really prove to be far too strong for Filippo Baldi in this Estoril Open clash. His hold/break percentage on clay is clearly superior to that of his rival and Baldi has had very little success on the main ATP Tour.

David Goffin vs Joao Sousa
12.00am

David Goffin To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

Clay is not his best surface and he hasn’t had the best start to the year, but David Goffin should still prove far too strong for Joao Sousa at the Estoril Open. His hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is much stronger than Sousa and Goffin has won four of their five previous meetings, including their only previous clash on clay.

BMW Open Tips – Wednesday 1st May

Christian Garin vs Diego Schwartzman
7.00pm

Christian Garin To Win @ $2.10

Diego Schwartzman bested me yesterday, but I am happy to take him on once again in this BMW Open clash with Christian Garin. Garin has a slightly superior hold/break percentage on clay than Schwartzman over the past 12 months and his record on the main tour is much better than his ranking suggests.

Marco Cecchinato vs Martin Klizan
11.30pm

Martin Klizan To Win @ $2.50

There is not as much between Marco Cecchinato and Martin Klizan as the current betting market suggests. There is nothing between the hold/break percentage on clay of the two players and Klizan is a better player than his recent form suggests. I am willing to gamble on him at the current odds of $2.50.

Estoril Open Tips – Wednesday 1st May

Reilly Opelka vs Gael Monfils
12.00am

Gael Monfils To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

I’m not sure why Gael Monfils is not a more dominant favourite for this Estoril Open clash. Reilly Opelka is still a very inexperienced player on clay and he has broken serve only four percent of the time over the past 12 months. That just isn’t good enough to win on clay if this is level and Monfils should be able to cruise to a straight set win.

BMW Open Tips – Tuesday 30th April

Benoit Paire vs Diego Schwartzman
8.00pm

Benoit Paire To Win @ $2.25

This is a match that I think the market has around the wrong way. Benoit Paire has a hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to that of Diego Schwartzman, while he won the only previous meeting between the duo at the Rome Masters last year.

Matteo Berrettini vs Denis Istomin
11.00pm

Matteo Berrettini To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

Matteo Berrettini is one of the form clay courters on the ATP Tour and he goes into the BMW Open in Munich on the back of a tournament win in Budapest. His hold/break percentage on clay in the past 12 months is much better than that of Denis Istomin and he won their only previous meeting earlier this year in straight sets.

Estoril Open Tips – Tuesday 30th April

Bernard Tomic vs John Millman
11.00pm

Bernard Tomic To Win @ $2.75

John Millman is definitely a better bloke than Bernard Tomic, but I’m not convinced that he is a better tennis player. There is not a great deal of difference in their clay court statistics over the past 12 months and Tomic did win their only previous meeting at the Australian Open back in 2016. There definitely isn’t as much between the pair as their current odds indicate.

BMW Open Tips – Monday 29th April

Lorenzo Sonego vs Marton Fucsovics
9.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $1.91

Both Lorenzo Sonego and Marton Fucsovics have played some excellent tennis in 2019, but I am confident that Fucsovics is the superior player. His hold/break percentage on clay is superior to that of Sonego and I think that he should go into this clash as a clear favourite.

Estoril Open Tips – Monday 29th April

Guido Andreozzi vs Hugo Dellien
9.00pm

Hugo Dellien To Win @ $1.80

Hugo Dellien is another player that has gone to another level in 2019 and there is no doubt that he produces his best tennis on clay. Dellien beat Guido Andreozzi in comfortable fashion in Rio de Janiero earlier this year and I am confident that he has more upside than the Argentinean.

Joao Domingues vs Alex De Minaur
9.00pm

Hugo Dellien To Win @ $1.80

Alex De Minaur does not have a great record on clay, but he should really still be too strong for Joao Domingues at the Estoril Open. Domingues has very little experience on the main ATP Tour and it really would be dissapointing for De Minaur if he was unable to get the job done.

Barcelona Open Tips – Friday 26th April

Daniil Medvedev vs Nicolas Jarry
8.30pm

Nicolas Jarry To Win @ $3.50

There is not as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests – especially on clay. Nicolas Jarry is a claycourt specialist and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is only narrowly inferior to that of Daniil Medvedev. I am willing to take the gamble at the current odds of $3.50.

Dominic Thiem vs Guido Pella
2.30am

Guido Pella To Win @ $3.40

Dominic Thiem is always tough to beat on clay, but Guido Pella has been in outstanding form in 2019 to date. They have split their four previous meetings with two wins apiece and there is an argument to be made that Pella is playing the best tennis of his career. The $3.40 on offer is well and truly over the odds.

Barcelona Open Tips – Wednesday 24th April

Mackenzie McDonald vs Gilles Simon
9.00pm

Gilles Simon To Win 2-0 @ $2

It is something of a surprise that Gilles Simon isn’t a dominant favourite for this Barcelona Open clash with Mackenzie McDonald. His hold/break percentage on clay is clearly superior to that of McDonald and he won their only previous meeting 6-1, 6-1 in Antwerp last year. $2 for a straight set Simon win is over the odds.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Fernando Verdasco
1.00am

Fernando Verdasco To Win @ $2.20

Neither Grigor Dimitrov or Fernando Verdasco are playing in particularly good form, but Dimitrov has been particularly poor in 2019. Verdasco has won two of the three previous meetings between the pair on clay and there is no doubt that this is Dimitrov’s weakest surface. I am still happy to take him on in just about any scenario and Verdasco appeals at $2.20.

Pablo Carreno Busta vs Benoit Paire
1.00am

Pablo Carreno Busta To Win @ $3

There is not as much between these two players as the current market suggests. Pablo Carreno Busta has struggled with injuries this year, but his best form is more than good enough to account for Benoit Paire. There isn’t a great deal of difference between their hold/break percentages on clay and I am happy to take a gamble on Carreno Busta at $3.

Barcelona Open Tips – Tuesday 23rd April

Malek Jaziri vs Guido Andreozzi
7.00pm

Malek Jaziri To Win $2.63

It has been a very rough start to the season for Malek Jaziri and his recent form has been terrible, but he is still well and truly over the odds at his current price of $2.63. His hold/break percentage on clay is clearly superior to that of Guido Andreozzi and it is not like the Argentinian is in particularly good form. Jaziri is the best value bet of the day.

Martin Klizan vs Christian Garin
9.00pm

Martin Klizan To Win @ $2.25

There really is not a great deal between this pair and I am surprised that Martin Klizan will go into this Barcelona Open clash as a genuine outsider. The pair have a virtually identical hold/break percentage on clay courts over the past 12 months and I believe that Klizan is the superior player. He shouldn’t be an outsider.

Albert Ramos-Vinolas vs Cameron Norrie
9.00pm

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.50

The market continues to underrate Camreon Norrie and the fact that he will go into this clash as an outsider is a huge surprise. Norrie has a hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months of 104% and that is clearly superior to the 96.2% of Albert Ramos-Vinolas. Ramos-Vinolas is obviously no pushover, but there is no way that he should be such a clear favourite.

Monte Carlo Masters Tips – Semi-Finals

Daniil Medvedev vs Dusan Lajovic
9.30pm

Dusan Lajovic To Win @ $3.00

Daniil Medvedev has played some excellent tennis during the Monte Carlo Masters to date, but his overall record on clay is not particularly strong. Dusan Lajovic has a hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months of over 108% and that is clearly superior to that of Medvedev. The $3 available for a Lajovic win is well and truly over the odds.

Fabio Fognini vs Rafael Nadal
11.30pm

Over 19.5 Games @ $2

There is no doubt that Rafael Nadal deserevss to go into this clash as a dominant favourite and he should prove too strong for Fabio Fognini, but I don’t think that there will be as much between the pair as the current market suggests. Fognini has beaten Nadal in the past on clay and their two most recent meetings on clay have gone to three sets.

Monte Carlo Masters Tips – Thursday 18th April

Cameron Norrie vs Lorenzo Sonego
9.00pm

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.38

Cameron Norrie did the job for us yesterday and there is no reason that he can’t win again at the Monte Carlo Masters. His hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is superior to that of Lorenzo Sonego and he definitely has more upside than his rival. The $2.38 available for another Norrie win is well and truly over the odds.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert vs Borna Coric
1.00am

Borna Coric To Win 2-0 @ $2.20

Borna Coric has really started to deliver on his potential over the past 12 months and he deserves to start this clash with Pierre-Hugues Herbert as a dominant favourite. Coric has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of Herbert and he won their only previous meeting in straight sets. He is good value to cruise to another straight sets win.

Monte Carlo Masters Tips – Wednesday 17th April

Gilles Simon vs Fabio Fognini
8.00pm

Gilles Simon To Win @ $1.91

Betting against Fabio Fognini has proven to be a very profitable betting strategy over the past month and there is no reason to move away from that at the Monte Carlo Masters. Gilles Simon takes strong form into this tournament and he has won all five previous meetings between the pair – all five of which have been played on clay.

Marton Fucsovics vs Cameron Norrie
8.00pm

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.63

Cameron Norrie’s rise up the rankings can continue with a strong run at the Monte Carlo Maters. He is a player that is still underrated by the market and the $2.63 that is available for him to beat Marton Fucsovics is well and truly over the odds. His hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is slightly superior to that of Fucsovics and he is easily the best value bet of the day.

Jan-Lennard Struff vs Grigor Dimitrov
10.00pm

Jan-Lennard Stuff To Win @ $2.10

It has been a tough start to the year for Grigor Dimitrov and he has never been a particularly good player on clay. Jan-Lennard Stuff has a hold/break percentage on clay that is clearly superior to that of his rival and he beat Dimitrov at the Monte Carlo Masters in 2017.

Saturday 13th April

Gilles Simon vs Pablo Andujar
9.00pm

Gilles Simon To Win @ $1.80

Pablo Andujar has recorded some impressive wins to qualify for the semi-finals at the Grand Prix Hassan II, but the market has definitely overreacted to his recent form. Gilles Simon has a hold/break percentage on clay courts that is clearly superior to that of Andujar and he has a great record against players that are ranked below him.

Benoit Paire vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
11.00pm

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga To Win 2-0 @ $2.10

The Jo-Wilfried Tsonga comeback continues and he has played some impressive tennis at the Grand Prix Hassan II. He goes into this clash with Benoit Paire as a deserving favourite. They have met on three previous occasions and Paire is yet to win a single set. The $2.10 available for Tsonga to win in straight sets is excellent value.

Friday 12th Apri

Pablo Andujar vs Jiri Vesely
10.00pm

Jiri Vesely To Win @ $2.38

I’m had a love-hate relationship with Jiri Vesely during this tournament to date, but I am keen to jump back on board ahead of this clash with Pablo Andujar. Andujar has struggled with injuries recently and before this tournament he had won only one of his past nine matches. He is under the odds at the current price of $2.38.

Casper Ruud vs Marcel Granollers
2.00am

Marcel Granollers To Win @ $2.25

I am a huge fan of Casper Ruud and I am confident that he will end up as a top 20 player, but I think that the market has overrated him ahead of this US Men’s Clay Court Championships clash with Marcel Granollers. Granollers has a hold/break percentage on clay that is clearly superior to that of Ruud and he has played some excellent tennis during this tournament to date/

Henri Laaksonen vs Christian Garin
2.00am

Henri Laaksonen To Win @ $2.50

There is nowhere near as much between Henri Laaksonen and Christian Garin as the current betting market suggests. Laaksonen is not the most consistent player in the world, but he does have ability on his day and his return game is clearly superior to that of Laaksonen. I am prepared to gamble on him at the current odds of $2.50.

Thursday 11th April

Juan Ignacio Londero vs Jiri Vesely
8.00pm

Juan Ignacio Londero To Win @ $2

Juan Ignacio Londero has made a simply outstanding start to the clay court season and he is a player that does still look to have plenty of upside on this surface. I am of the belief that Jiri Vesely is better suited on quicker surfaces and his hold/break percentage on clay is weaker than that of Londero. There isn’t a great deal between the pair, but Londero represents value at the current price of $2.

Benoit Paire vs Pierre Hugues Herbert
12.00am

Pierre Hugues Herbert To Win @ $2.10

Pierre Hugues Herbert has hit somewhat of a slump following his impressive start to the season, which include a run to the final at Montpellier, but I do think that at his best he is a better player than Benoit Paire. Before this tournament Paire had only won two matches so far in 2019 and it is tough to see why the market does have him as favourite for this clash.

Sam Querrey vs Guillermo Garcia-Lopez
5.00am

Sam Querrey To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Sam Querrey is a safe bet to maintain his excellent record against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez. Querrey has won six of the past seven matches played between the pair and his hold/break percentage on clay courts over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Garcia-Lopez. The $2.38 for him to win in straight sets is well and truly over the odds.

Wednesday 10th April

Christian Garin vs Jeremy Chardy
3.00am

Jeremy Chardy To Win @ $2

There really isn’t a great deal between these two players, but it is somewhat of a surprise that Jeremy Chardy will go will go into this clash at the US Men’s Clay Court Championship as an underdog. He has won the two previous meetings between the pair, both of which were played on clay, and historically he has a better record on this surface than that of his rival.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Robin Haase
8.00pm

Robin Haase To Win @ $2.20

I was keen to take on Robin Haase in his most recent clash with Malek Jaziri, but he got the job done and he is good value to account for Lorenzo Sonego. Haase has a hold/break percentage on clay that is superior to that of Sonego and I think that he is a far more consistent performer than the Italian. The $2.20 available for an upset Haase win is over the odds.

Guido Andreozzi vs Gilles Simon
12.00am

Gilles Simon To Win 2-0 @ $2.63

Gilles Simon hasn’t been in the very best of form, but he should still prove far too strong for Guido Andreozzi and it is a surprise that he is not a dominant favourite. Andreozzi is a journeyman that has never really reached any great heights during his career and he has been overrated ahead of this clash.

Tuesday 9th April

Bernard Tomic vs Denis Kudla
11.00am

Bernard Tomic To Win @ $2.10

It is always tough to trust Bernard Tomic from a betting perspective, but there is no doubt that he is over the odds ahead of this clash with Denis Kudla at the US Men’s Clay Court Championships. Neither player is at their best on clay, but Tomic has a hold/break percentage over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to that of Kudla on the surface. His recent form has been credible and he can continue his rise up the rankings.

Malek Jaziri vs Robin Haase
10.00pm

Malek Jaziri To Win @ $2.75

This is a match that I believe the market has gotten completely wrong. Malek Jaziri has a hold/break percentage of over 103% on clay courts over the past 12 months, while Robin Haase’s figure is less than 100%. Jaziri won the only previous meeting between the pair in Dubai last year and there is no reason that such juicy odds should be available.

Jiri Vesely vs Fabio Fognini
9.00am

Jeri Vesely To Win @ $2.75

Jiri Vesely is a better player than his overall record suggests and his hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is the equal of Fabio Fognini. Fognini has made a horror start to 2019 and he has lost six of his past seven matches. Until he starts showing some signs of improvement, I am more than happy to take him on.

Monday 8th April

Taro Daniel vs Mischa Zverev
11.00pm

Mischa Zverev To Win @ $3

There is nowhere near as much between these two players as the current market at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Morocco suggests. Daniel a slightly superior hold/break percentage to Zverev on clay courts, but his recent form has been terrible and he has only won one complete match in 2019 to date. Zverev’s form really hasn’t been much better, but the $3 currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Ivo Karlovic vs Ryan Harrison
6.00am

Ivo Karlovic To Win 2-0 @ $2.63

Clay may not be his best surface, but Ivo Karlovic is always a tricky opponent and I expect him to be too strong for a battling Ryan Harrison. Karlovic has a hold/break percentage on clay that is clearly superior to that of Harrison and the American has won only two matches this season. Karlovic won their most recent match-up in straight sets and the $2.63 for an identical result in this clash is over the odds.

Marcel Granollers vs Taylor Harry Fritz
9.00am

Marcel Granollers To Win @ $2.25

I have a big opinion of Taylor Harry Fritz, but he is yet to prove himself on clay and he is well and truly under the odds in this clash at the US Men’s Clay Court Championships. Marcel Granollers has a hold/break percentage of 113% on clay courts over the past 12 months, while Harry Fritz has a figure of just over 100%. Granollers should be favourite and he is a great bet at his current price.

Friday 5th April

Sloane Stephens vs Ajla Tomlijanovic
10.00am

Sloane Stephens To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

Sloane Stephens has an outstanding record against Ajla Tomlijanovic and it is a surprise that she will not go into this clash as a much shorter priced favourite. Stephens has won the four previous meetings between the two players and three of those wins have come in straight sets. The $2.50 currently available for another straight sets win is well and truly over the odds.

Angelique Kerber vs Karolina Muchova
3.00am

Karolina Muchova To Win @ $3.40

It has been an outstanding start to the season for Karolina Muchova and she has a genuine chance of upsetting Angelique Kerber in this clash. Muchova almost beat Kerber when they met at the Miami Masters a couple of weeks ago and she has already claimed a number of big scalps in 2019. I am always happy to bet against Kerber, especially when she is a very short favourite.

Magdalena Rybarikova vs Sachia Vickery
3.00am

Sachia Vickery To Win @ $2

Sachia Vickery recorded a dominant win over Magdalena Rybarikova when they met at this exact tournament 12 months ago and there is no reason that she can’t do the same in this clash. Her service game has been particularly strong in recent weeks, while Rybarikova has really struggled for consistency during 2019 to date.

Thursday 4th April

Angelique Kerber vs Karolina Muchova
3.00am

Angelique Kerber To Win 2-0 @ $1.80

Angelique Kerber is a player that I generally think is overrated by the market, but she should really prove far too strong for Karolina Muchova in this clash at the Monterrey Open. Kerber has a clear edge over Muchova in all key metrics and if she produces anything like her best, she will prove far too strong for her rival and the $1.80 for her to win in straight sets is great value.

Margarita Gasparyan vs Garbine Muguruza
3.00am

Margarita Gasparyan To Win @ $3.25

It has been a fairly inconsistent start to the season for Garbine Muguruza and she has been a heavy losing betting proposition over the past 12 months. Margarita Gasparyan has played some decent tennis in 2019 to date and she is a player that is generally underrated by the betting market. She is well and truly over the odds at the current price of $3.25.

Zarina Diyas vs Victoria Azarenka
3.00am

Victoria Azarenka To Win 2-0 @ $1.73

Victoria Azarenka wiped Zarina Diyas off the court in their previous meeting at Indian Wells and it would not surprise to see a repeat of that result in their clash at the Monterrey Open. Diyas  performed well at the Indian Wells Challenger, but she just doesn’t have the firepower to compete with Azarenka.

Wednesday 3rd April

Magdalena Rybarikova vs Stefanie Voegele
3.00am

Stefanie Voegele To Win 2-0 @ $2.75

Stefanie Voegele is definitely not the most consistent player on the WTA Tour, but she showed her talent with her impressive run at Indian Wells, which included wins over Sara Errani and Sloane Stephens. Rybarikova has only won two matches in 2019 and Voegele should be able to cruise to a comfortable win.

Sofia Kenin vs Monica Puig
2.00am

Sofia Kenin To Win @ $1.80

Sofia Kenin comfortably accounted for Monica Puig when they met in Quebec last year and she has proven to be a very profitable player from a betting perspective over the past 12 months. Puig’s level has dropped significantly over the past 12 months and she has never been a particularly good player on clay. Kenin should be able to cruise to a comfortable win.

Julia Goerges vs Taylor Townsend
2.00am

Taylor Townsend To Win @ $2.63

Taylor Townsend is a young player with plenty of upside and she is great value to upset Julia Goerges in this clash at the Volvo Open. Townsend is coming off strong performances at both Indian Wells and the Miami Open and she did beat Goerges in their only previous meeting. The $2.63 is over the odds in what should be a fairly even clash.

Tuesday 2nd April

Timea Babos vs Ivana Jorovic
2.00am

Timea Babos To Win @ $2

Ivana Jorovic comes into this tournament on the back of an impressive tournament win at Osaka and she has played some excellent tennis in 2019, but the market may have overreacted to her recent form. It has been a very tough start to the year for Timea Babos, but her best form is superior to that of Jorovic and the $2 that is currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Harriet Dart vs Dalila Jakupovic
3.00am

Harriet Dart To Win @ $2.38

Harriet Dart is a young player with plenty of upside and there is not as much  between her and Dalila Jakupovic as the current betting market suggests. Dart is coming off a strong tournament at Croissy-Beaubourg and she is well and truly over the odds at her current price of $2.38.

Sachia Vickery vs Alison Riske
3.00am

Sachia Vickery To Win @ $3.25

There is not as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests. Sachia Vickery has made a decent start to 2019 and she played some good tennis to qualify for the main draw at the Miami Masters last week. Alison Riske is a talented player on her day, but she does struggle for consistency and betting against her has proven to be a profitable play over the past 12 months.

Monday 1st April

 

Magdalena Rybarikova v Misaki Doi
4.00am

Misaki Doi To Win @ $1.91

Magdalena Rybarikova has won only one of her past ten matches and I am more than happy to take her on in this contest. Misaki Doi got through qualifying at both the Indian Wells and Miami Masters and she is clearly playing in better form than her rival.

Olga Danilovic vs Kirsten Flipkens
4.00am

Kirsten Flipkens To Win @ $2

Kirsten Flipkens has not had an excellent start to the season on the WTA Tour, but I still think that she is a superior player to Olga Danilovic and the $2 available for a Flipkens wins is well and truly over the odds. Danilovic has won only three matches so far this season and I am more than happy to take her on at the current price.

Miami Open Tips

Ash Barty vs Karolina Pliskova
4.00am

Karolina Pliskova To Win @ $2

This is the biggest match in the career of Ash Barty and we would love to see her win the Miami Open, but the value in betting lies with Karolina Pliskova. Pliskova has played some outstanding tennis during 2019 to date and she has far more big match experience than Barty. I believe that the prices should be flipped and the $2 available for a Pliskova win is well and truly over the odds.

John Isner vs Felix Auger Aliassime
4.00am

John Isner To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

John Isner has been in excellent form at the Miami Open and he is a deserving favourite to qualify for the final. His returning game has been fairly strong during the tournament to date and it is tough to see Felix Auger Aliassime breaking his serve. The price on offer for Isner to win in straight sets is well and truly over the odds.

Antee Kontaveit vs Ash Barty
4.00am

Ash Barty To Win 2-0 @ $2

Ash Barty has been excellent at the Miami Open and she is overwhelming favourite to qualify for what would be one of the biggest finals of her career to date. She out-toughed an in-form Petra Kvitova to win her quarter-final and a repeat of that performance would make her far too strong for Antee Kontaveit. The even money for Barty to win in straight sets is well and truly over the odds.

Denis Shapovalov vs Francis Tiafoe
6.00am

Francis Tiafoe To Win @ $2.50

There is not as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests. Denis Shapovalov has a hold/break percentage that is only slightly superior to that of Francis Tiafoe and they have split their two previous meetings one win apiece. Tiafoe is playing in career best form and he is great value to record an upset win.

Kevin Anderson vs Roger Federer
10.00am

Over 23.5 Games @ $2.25

Roger Federer has an excellent record against Kevin Anderson and he deserves to go into this clash as a clear favourite, but I think that Anderson is more than capable of giving him a scare. The South African did beat Federer at Wimbledon last year and he has given the Swiss maestro some issues in the past. It would not surprise to see Anderson pinch a set or at least force Federer to win it in a couple of tie-breakers.

Miami Open Tips

Kyle Edmund vs John Isner
3.00am

John Isner To Win @ $1.91

The market can’t split Kyle Edmund and John Isner ahead of this Miami Open clash, but I am happy to give the edge to the big-serving American. Isner’s hold/break percentage is narrowly superior to that of Edmund on hardcourts, but the most telling factor is the poor record of Edmund against top ten players. He has won only two of his past 20 matches against top-ten players and I more than happy to take him on.

Felix Auger Aliassime vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
3.00am

Felix Auger Aliassime To Win @ $1.80

Felix Auger Aliassime is one of the most in-form players on the ATP Tour and he has been nothing short of a revelation during this season to date. Auger Aliassime has made deep runs at Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Indian Wells and in Nikoloz Basilashvili he faces an opponent that is generally overrated by the market. Auger Aliassime is a safe bet to continue his excellent start to the year.

Borna Coric vs Nick Kyrgios
5.00am

Nick Kyrgios To Win @ $2

We have outstanding odds available for Nick Kyrgios to beat Borna Coric in this Miami Open clash. The regular price on offer for a Kyrgios victory is $1.62, but we are offering punters the opportunity to snap up the juicy odds of $2!  Kyrgios has won two of his three meetings with Coric and he has been playing in simply outstanding form in recent weeks.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Jordan Thompson
1.00am

Jordan Thompson To Win @ $3.25

Taking on Grigor Dimitrov has proven to be a profitable betting play this season and Jordan Thompson is well and truly over the odds at his current price. His hold/break percentage is only slightly inferior on hard courts than that of Dimitrov and he is the type of player that can really frustrate the Bulgarian.

Denis Shapovalov vs Andrey Rublev
7.00am

Andrey Rublev To Win @ $2.38

There is not as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests and Andrey Rublev is over the odds at his current price of $2.38. Rublev does have a stronger returning game to Shapovalov and he won the only previous meeting between the pair at the Next Gen Finals in 2017. This should be an excellent clash and it is Rublev that I am keen to side with at the current odds.

Francis Tiafoe vs David Ferrer
10.30am

Francis Tiafoe To Win @ $2.10

It is a big surprise that David Ferrer is the favourite for this clash at the Miami Open and Francis Tiafoe is outstanding value at his current price of $2.10. His hold/break percentage is clearly superior to that of Ferrer over the past 12 months on hard courts and Ferrer’s service game has been particularly weak in that time. Tiafoe has made an excellent start to the season, he was outstanding at the Australian Open, and he should be able to continue his campaign at the Miami Masters.

Borna Coric vs Jeremy Chardy
10.00am

Borna Coric To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Borna Coric has the ability to be a top ten player at the end of 2019, but he is still a player that is generally underrated by the market. He is a clearly superior player to a fading Jeremy Chardy on every metric and he should prove far too strong for this rival at the Miami Masters. 

Nick Kyrgios vs Dusan Lajovic
12.00pm

Nick Kyrgios To Win 2-0 @ $1.80

It is always tough to trust Nick Kyrgios from a betting perspective, but he really should prove far too strong for Dusan Lajovic in this Miami Masters. Kyrgios has a hold/break percentage on hard courts that was is superior to that of Lajovic and he recorded a dominant win when they last met. Hopefully Kyrgios behaves himself and, if he does, he is a safe bet.

Joao Sousa vs Steve Johnson
2.00am

Steve Johnson To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Steve Johnson is a consistent player that generally gets the job done when he plays players that are ranked lower than he is and he should prove too strong for Joao Sousa at the Miami Masters. His hold/break percentage on hardcourts is clearly superior to that of his rival and he won their only previous meeting in straight sets. 

Leonardo Mayer vs Guido Pella
2.00am

Guido Pella To Win 2-1 @ $3.75

This Miami Masters clash between is an intriguing one from a betting perspective. Guido Pella has won three of his four meetings with Leonardo Mayer and he is definitely the better player on hard courts, but when they play it generally goes three sets. Pella should get the job done, but it will take him three sets to do so and the $3.75 available for a Pella 2-1 victory is well and truly over the odds. 

Borna Coric vs Jeremy Chardy
2.00am

Borna Coric To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Borna Coric has the ability to be a top ten player at the end of 2019, but he is still a player that is generally underrated by the market. He is a clearly superior player to a fading Jeremy Chardy on every metric and he should prove far too strong for this rival at the Miami Masters. 

Jeremy Chardy vs Nicolas Jarry
11.00am

Nicolas Jarry To Win @ $2.38

There is not as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests. There is very little between the hold/break percentages of Jeremy Chardy and Nicolas Jarry and Jarry is still on the rise, while Chardy is a player that has regressed somewhat over the past 12 months.

Marius Copil vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas
11.00am

Marius Copil @ $2.25

Marius Copil should be favourite for this clash and he is simply outstanding value at his current odds of $2.25. Copil is a player that has made an excellent start to 2019 and his hold/break percentage on hard court over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

Maximilian Marterer vs Taylor Harry Fritz
1.30pm

Taylor Harry Fritz To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Taylor Harry Fritz is a young player that I have a very big opinion of and he is great value to cruise to victory against Maximilian Marterer. Both players have a fairly strong service game, but Fritz definitely has the edge on return and he has broken serve over 16% of the time on hardcourts over the past 12 months.

Shuai Zhang vs Petra Martic
2.00am

Petra Martic To Win @ $1.91

Petra Martic won the previous meeting between this pair and backing her over the past 12 months has proven to be a profitable betting play. Shuai Zhang has made a decent start to the season, but I don’t think that she has as much upside as Martic and she has under-performed market expectations over the past six months.

Ons Jabeur vs Alison Van Uytvanck
2.00am

Ons Jabeur To Win @ $2

This is an interesting clash in the opening round of the Miami Open as neither Ons Jabeur or Alison Van Uytvanck have a great record on hard courts. In saying that, Jabeur has shown some signs of improvement during 2019 to date and Van Uytvanck has won only two of her past 12 matches on hard courts.

Victoria Azarenka vs Dominika Cibulkova
2.00am

Dominika Cibulkova To Win @ $3.25

Victoria Azarenka is not the player that she once was and taking her off from a betting perspective has been a profitable betting play over the past 12 months. It has been a fairly flat start to the season for Cibulkova, but she is a player with plenty of talent on her day and she has won the past four meetings between this pair. She is well and truly over the odds at her current quote of $3.25.

Indian Wells Final Tips

Roger Federer vs Dominic Thiem
9.30am

Roger Federer To Cover The Games Line (-4.5 Games) @ $2.38

It is no surprise that Roger Federer will go into the Indian Wells Final as a dominant favourite. He has been excellent during the tournament to date and he has won his two previous meetings with Dominic Thiem on hard courts in very comfortable fashion. Dominic Thiem has played some good tennis at Indian Wells, but I don’t think that he will be any match for a firing Roger Federer.

Indian Wells Day 9 Tips

Gael Monfils vs Dominic Thiem
1.00pm

Gael Monfils To Win @ $1.67

Dominic Thiem has won his four previous meetings with Gael Monfils, but I am still keen to side with Monfils in this clash. Monfils has been nothing short of outstanding during 2019 to date and his victory over Philipp Kohlschreiber, who had just beaten Novak Djokovic, was brilliant. His hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly superior to that of Thiem and he should have too much power for his rival.

Hubert Hurkacz vs Roger Federer
5.00am

Roger Federer To Cover The Games Total (-5.5 Games) @ $2.10

Hubert Hurkacz has beat Lucas Pouille, Kei Nishikori and Denis Shapovalov to qualify for this stage of the tournament, but he faces a completely different challenge against Roger Federer. Federer was at his brilliant best against Kyle Edmund and it would not surprise to see him prove far too strong for his rival.

Karen Khachanov vs Rafael Nadal
5.00am

Over 21.5 Games @ $1.91

Rafael Nadal deserves to go into this clash as clear favourite and he is definitely the player to beat, but this should be a fairly tight game. Karen Khachanov actually won the first set when these two players met at the US Open last year and I think that he is more than capable of taking a set from Khachanov at Indian Wells.

Indian Wells Day 8 Tips

Ivo Karlovic vs Dominic Thiem
5.00am

Ivo Karlovic To Win @ $3.50

Ivo Karlovic has played some good tennis at Indian Wells to date and the fast courts are definitely in his favour. It has not been the best start to the season for Dominic Thiem and I fancy the big-serving Karlovic to give him a few issues. There is no doubt that Thiem deserves to start as favourite, but Karlovic is excellent value at his current odds of $3.50.

Philipp Kohlschreiber vs Gael Monfils
2.00pm

Gael Monfils To Win 2-0 @ $2.20

Philipp Kohlschreiber is coming off a huge upset win over Novak Djokovic, but I doubt that he will be able to repeat that effort against Gael Monfils. Monfils has won 13 of the 15 matches that have been played between the pair and all nine of their meetings on hard courts. He has won their past three clashes on hard courts in straight sets and he is great value to replicate that in this Indian Wells clash.

Indian Wells Day 7 Tips

Andrey Rublev vs Karen Khachanov
11.00am

Karen Khachanov To Win @ $2.25

Karen Khachanov has not had the best start to 2019, but on his best form he does have a genuine edge over Andrey Rublev. It is somewhat of a surprise that Khachanov will not go into this clash as a short-priced favourite and I expect him to play himself back into form with a dominant win over his countrymen.

 

Indian Wells Day 6 Tips

Gilles Simon vs Dominic Thiem
11.00am

Gilles Simon To Win @ $3

Dominic Thiem has an excellent record against Gilles Simon, he has won their past seven meetings, but there is not as much between the two players as the current betting market suggests. Simon actually has a superior hold/break percentage on hardcourts than Thiem over the past 12 months and Thiem has not made a particularly strong start to 2018 following losses at the hands of Diego Schwartzman and Laslo Djere.

Felix Auger Aliassime vs Yoshihito Nishioka
12.00pm

Yoshihito Nishioka To Win @ $2.25

It is very tough to split these two players and it is Yoshihito Nishioka that offers value at his current odds of $2.25. Nishioka hasn’t had a great start to the year, but he has had plenty of tough draws and he is playing better than his current form suggests. His hold/break percentage on hard courts is slightly superior to that of Felix Auger Aliassime and he shouldn’t be a clear outsider.

Novak Djokovic vs Philipp Kohlschreiber
2.00pm

Over 20.5 Games @ $2.25

Novak Djokovic has won eight of his nine career meetings with Philipp Kohlschreiber, but the German has never really been disgraced in any of their past meetings. They last met at Indian Wells three years ago when Djokovic won 7-5, 7-5 and a similar scoreline looks on the cards in this clash. The $2.25 available for there to be over 20.5 games does stand out as excellent value.

Indian Wells Day 5 Tips

Marton Fucsovics vs Stan Wawrinka
12.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.75

Stan Wawrinka is a player that I am always looking to oppose and it is Marton Fucsovics that looks like great value in this clash at Indian Wells. Fucsovics is an underrated player that has made some big strides in the past 12 months and his hold/break percentage over this period to superior to that of Wawrinka. Fucsovics has beaten Wawrinka in the past and he is capable of pulling off an upset again.

Hubert Hurkacz vs Lucas Pouille
12.00pm

Lucas Pouille To Win @ $1.80

I can’t really understand why Lucas Pouille is not a dominant favourite for this Indian Wells clash with Hubert Hurkacz. Pouille showed his quality with his run to the semi-finals at the Australian Open and his hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly superior to that of Hurkacz.

Ivo Karlovic vs Prajnesh Gunneswaran
7.00am

Ivo Karlovic To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Prajnesh Gunneswaran has done an excellent job to make it to this stage of the tournament and it will do his ranking plenty of favours, but I’m not sure that he will be able to cop with the big-serving Ivo Karlovic. Karlovic is coming of an impressive win over Borna Coric and I do expect him to have any real issues with Gunneswaran.

Indian Wells Day 4 Tips

Nick Kyrgios vs Philipp Kohlschreiber
10.00am

Philipp Kohlschreiber To Win @ $2.75

Nick Kyrgios is coming off a simply outstanding win at the Mexico Open, but consistency has never been a strong point and he is definitely under the odds for this clash with Philipp Kohlschreiber. Kohlschreiber has a superior hold/break percentage to Kyrgios on hard courts over the past 12 months and he is a player that has the game to give the Australian some serious issues.

Gael Monfils vs Leonardo Mayer
8.00am

Gael Monfils To Win 2-0 @ $1.73

Leonardo Mayer is a player that I am always keen to take on when he isn’t playing on clay and Gael Monfils should prove far too strong for him. Monfils has made a very strong start to the season and on hard court he will prove far too strong for Mayer. The $1.73 for him to win in straight sets is a great and safe bet.

Borna Coric vs Ivo Karlovic
8.00am

Ivo Karlovic To Win @ $3

Borna Coric is a player that I have a big opinion of, but I can’t get him as short as his current quote for this Indian Wells clash with Ivo Karlovic. Karlovic is always a difficult opponent and he has actually won the previous two matches played between the pair. He is over the odds at the current price.

Indian Wells Day 3 Tips

Mackenzie McDonald vs Joao Sousa
1.00pm

Joao Sousa To Win @ $2.10

There is a fair bit of hype surrounding Mackenzie McDonald, but I am yet to be convinced and I am happy to take him on at his current price. Joao Sousa actually has a superior hold/break percentage than that of McDonald on hard courts over the past 12 months and his record on the surface is actually strong. Sousa should be favourite and he is great value at his current price.

Nicolas Jarry vs Francis Tiafoe
3.00pm

Nicolas Jarry To Win @ $3

There is not as much between these two players as the current betting market suggests. Francis Tiafoe obviously has plenty of talent, as we saw at the Australian Open, but consistency is not his strong point and he still has plenty of work to do on his serve. His hold/break percentage is only slightly superior to that of Jarry and the Chilean does represent genuine value at his current quote of $3.

Indian Wells Day 2 Tips

Bradley Klahn vs Malek Jaziri
1.00pm

Bradley Klahn To Win @ $2.10

Malek Jaziri is a player that I am generally happy to take on at this level. Bradley Klahn is a journeyman, but his record at The Masters is actually fairly strong and his hold/break percentage is superior to that of Jaziri on hard courts over the past 12 months.

Taro Daniel vs Dusan Lajovic
5.00am

Dusan Lajoic To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

Dusan Lajovic has a clear edge over Taro Daniel and it is a surprise that he will not go into this clash as a dominant favourite. Lajovic has had a horror start to the season, but this is his chance to return to winning form.

Reilly Opelka vs Leonardo Mayer
3.00pm

Reilly Opelka To Win 2-0 @ $2.63

Reilly Opelka has made a very strong start to the year and he claimed his maiden ATP Tour title in the New York Open. Leonardo Mayer may be the highest-ranked player, but his record on hard courts is poor and Opelka has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to his rival. Opelka’s service game will prove too much for Mayer and he can blast his way to a comfortable victory.

Indian Wells Day 1 Tips

Martin Klizan vs Mischa Zverev
6.00am

Mischa Zverev To Win @ $2.75

There is not as much between these two players as the current market suggests. Martin Klizan did win the only previous match between the two in comfortable fashion, but Mischa Zverev does have a hold/break percentage on hard courts that is only slightly inferior to that of Klizan and he is capable of playing at a high level on his day.

Ilya Ivashka vs Guido Andreozzi
6.00am

Ilya Ivashka To Win 2-0 @ $1.83

Guido Andreozzi is a player with a very poor record on hard courts and he has won only one of his past eight games on the ATP Tour. Ilya Ivashka has actually won 17 of his 29 previous matches on Hard courts on the main ATP Tour and he is a better player than his ranking suggests. He should prove too strong for Guido Andreozzi in this clash.

Felix Auger Aliassime vs Cameron Norrie
6.00am

Cameron Norrie To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

I have been a broken record about my appreciation for Cameron Norrie so far this season and this is another clash where he does look like an excellent bet. His form during 2019 to date has been excellent and I am confident that he has a clear edge over Felix Auger Aliassime. The $2.50 available for him to win in straight sets is excellent value.

Indian Wells Qualifying Day 1 Tips

Casper Ruud vs Tatsuma Ito
1.00pm

Casper Ruud To Win 2-0 @ $2

Casper Ruud is a young player that I have a big opinion of and I expect him to qualify for the main draw at Indian Wells in fairly comfortable fashion. On all key metrics he does have a clear edge over Tasuma Ito and the $2 for him to win in straight sets is well and truly over the odds.

Andrey Rublev vs Kamil Majchrzak
4.00pm

Kamil Majchrzak To Win @ $2.75

Kamil Majchrzak is a Polish player with some potential and he actually has a decent record when he does get an opportunity on the main ATP Tour. Andrey Rublev is a good player, but consistency is not really a strength and I am happy to take him on at the current price.

Saturday 2nd March

Nick Kyrgios vs John Isner
4.00pm

John Isner To Win @ $2.20

Nick Kyrgios got the job done for us against Stan Wawrinka, but I think that he may have some issues with big-serving American John Isner. Isner hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is superior to that of Kyrgios and it is tough to see how Kyrgios will be able to break Isner.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Roger Federer
4.00pm

Roger Federer To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

This is a rematch of their epic at the Australian Open and Roger Federer will be out for revenge. I think that he will get just that. Stefanos Tsitsipas played incredible tennis in that contest and Federer had no luck on break point whatsoever. A firing Federer will prove too strong for the Greek youngster.

Friday 1st March

Nick Kyrgios vs Stan Wawrinka
1.30pm

Nick Kyrgios To Win @ $2.50

There is famously no love lost between this pair and this should be a fascinating clash at the Mexico Open. They have split their past four matches two wins apiece and, as I have said on many occasions, I don’t think that Stan Wawrinka is as good a player as he once was. Nick Kyrgios goes into this clash with plenty of confidence, following his win over Rafa Nadal yesterday, and he is great value at his current price.

John Isner vs John Millman
3.00pm

John Millman To Win @ $2.25

It could be a big day for Australians at the Mexico Open as John Millman is an excellent chance of recording an upset win over John Isner. Isner has won the two previous clashes between the pair, but there has been nothing between them and Millman actually has a superior hold/break percentage on hardcourts over the past 12 months. Millman can frustrate the big-serving Isner and qualify for the semi-finals.

Borna Coric vs Roger Federer
2.00am

Borna Coric To Win @ $3.25

It is always risky betting against Roger Federer, but Borna Coric actually does represent serious value in this clash at the Dubai Duty Free Championships. Coric has actually won the past two meetings between the pair, including the Shanghai Masters, and his hold/break percentage over the past 12 months is only slightly inferior to that of Federer. I am very keen to take the gamble at $3.25.

Thursday 28th February

Cameron Norrie vs Diego Schwartzman
12.20pm

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.10

Cameron Norrie is a player that I will be throwing my support behind a lot during the 2019 season and the market is still yet to realise that he has such quality. His hold/break percentage over the past 12 months on hard courts is clearly superior to that of Diego Schwartzman and there was nothing between them when met in Antwerp last season. Norrie should be favourite and $2.10 is a great price.

David Ferrer vs Alexander Zverev
3.00pm

David Ferrer To Win @ $4.50

Alexander Zverev deserves to go into this clash at the Mexico Open as a clear favourite, but there is no way that David Ferrer should be at such juicy odds of $4.50. Zverev has won the past three matches between the pair, but there hasn’t been a great deal between them and Ferrer is still capable of playing some excellent tennis on his day. I am happy to gamble on the Spaniard in his farewell tour.

Borna Coric vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
4.00am

Borna Coric To Win 2-0 @ $2.63

It is a surprise that Borna Coric is not a shorter-priced favourite for this Dubai Duty Free Championships clash. Coric has a hold/break percentage over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to Basilashvili and he has won his past two matches against his Georgian rival in straight sets. The $2.63 available for a Coric victory is an outstanding price.

Tuesday 26th February

Egor Gerasimov vs Robin Haase
8.00pm

Egor Gerasimov To Win @ $2

Egor Gerasimov may be one of the most underrated players on the ATP Tour. He doesn’t play that much matches on the ATP Tour, but last year he was able to record big wins over the likes of Bernard Tomic, Sam Querrey, Benoit Paire and Damir Dzumhur. Robin Haase has only won two matches this season and his form over the past 12 months has been fairly poor.

Marin Cilic vs Gael Monfils
1.00am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $1.91

The fact that Marin Cilic and Gael Monfils have been drawn to face each other in the opening round of the Dubai Duty Free Championship shows the strength of the tournament. Monfils has won the three previous meeting between the pair and his hold/break percentage on hardcourts is superior to that of Cilic over the past 12 months. The Frenchmen has been in outstanding form and he can continue his winning ways.

Ryan Harrison vs Stan Wawrinka
1.00am

Ryan Harrison To Win @ $3.25

Ryan Harrison is not the most consistent player in the world, but if he does produce a semblance of his best form he will give a fading Stan Wawrinka a serious scare in this clash at the Dubai Duty Free Championship. There is very little between the hold/break percentage of both players on hard courts over the past 12 months and Harrison played some excellent tennis to qualify for the main draw of the tournament.

Monday 25th February

Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Karen Khachanov
11.00pm

Karen Khachanov To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

There may not be a great deal between their rankings, but Karen Khachanov is clearly a superior player than Nikoloz Basilashvili and  I expect him to be far too strong for his rival at the Dubai Duty Free Championships. Khachanov has a hold/break percentage that is far better than Basilashvili on hard courts and he has won the two previous matches between the pair. The $2.25 available for Khachanov to win this match in straight sets is well and truly over the odds.

Francis Tiafoe vs Jordan Thompson
3.00am

Jordan Thompson To Win @ $2.50

Francis Tiafoe is coming off an excellent run at the Australian Open, but he is well and truly under the odds for this Mexican Open clash with Jordan Thompson. Thompson has played some good tennis during 2019 to date and his hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months has been superior to that of his rival. Tiafoe is a player that struggles for consistency and I’ll be happy to take him on over the next month.

Cameron Norrie vs Yoshihito Nishoioka
3.00am

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $2.10

Cameron Norrie is a player that I’m expecting big things of in 2019 and I am surprised that he is not a clear favourite for this clash with Yoshihito Nishoioka. Norrie has a superior hold/break percentage on hardcourts over the past 12 months than Nishoioka and there is no doubt that he has more upside than his rival. The $2.10 currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Saturday 23rd February

Juan Martin Del Potro vs Mackenzie McDonald
12.00pm

Juan Martin Del Potro To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

Juan Martin Del Potro has made a strong start to tennis at the Delray Beach Open and he really should prove far too strong for Mackenzie McDonald. Del Potro has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of his rival and he has won four of his past five matches against lower-ranked opposition in straight sets. The $1.91 for him to record a comfortable win is well and truly over the odds.

Mikhail Kukushkin vs Ugo Humbert
1.00am

Ugo Humbert To Win @ $1.73

I was against Ugo Humbert in his quarter-final clash with Matthias Bachinger at Open 13, but I have to side with him in this meeting with Mikhail Kukushkin. Humbert has a hold/break percentage over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to that of Kukushkin on hardcourts and his impressive serve game could prove to be the difference between the two players.

Belinda Bencic vs Petra Kvitova
2.00am

Petra Kvitova To Win 2-0 @ $2

The final of the Dubai Duty Free Championship is set to be a fascinating clash between Belinda Bencic and Petra Kvitova. Kvitova has won the three previous meetings between this pair in fairly comfortable fashion and that included a 6-1, 6-4 victory at the Australian Open earlier this year. Kvitova is outstanding value to cruise to another straight-sets victory.

Friday 22nd February

Matthias Bachinger vs Ugo Humbert
2.00am

Matthias Bachinger To Win @ $3

Matthias Bachinger has already recorded two wins for us at the Open 13 in Marseille and we are sticking with the bandwagon. His hold/break percentage on hardcourts is clearly superior to that of Ugo Humbert over the past 12 months and it truly is ridiculous that there is $3 available.  He is playing in career best form and we will continue to stick with him while that is the case.

Adrian Mannarino vs John Isner
6.30am

John Isner To Beat Games Handicap (-4.5 Games) @ $3.25

John Isner has a simply outstanding record against Adrian Mannarino. The two veterans have met on seven occasions and Isner has been successful in six of those meetings. The majority of those wins have been in dominant fashion and he has beat the Games Handicap of 4.5 games in all but one of those victories. This should be a dominant Isner win and $3.25 for him to cover the Games Handicap is outstanding value.

Thursday 21st February

Steve Johnson vs Paolo Lorenzi
2.00am

Paolo Lorenzi To Win @ $3

There is nowhere near as much between Steve Johnson and Paolo Lorenzi as the current betting market suggests. Steve Johnson went into this tournament on the back of nine straight defeats and he is a player that has regressed badly in the past 12 months. Lorenzi is coming off a strong run at the New York Open and their is nothing between their hold/break percentages on hard courts over the past 12 months.

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez vs Mackenzie McDonald
2.00am

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez To Win @ $2.63

This is another match at the Delray Beach Open where there isn’t as much between the two players as the current betting market suggests. Their hold/break percentages on hard courts over the past 12 months are virtually identical and Mackenzie McDonald has won only one match so far this season. The difference is price is ridiculous and Garcia-Lopez is great value at his current odds of $2.63.

Fernando Verdasco vs Matthias Bachinger
12.00am

Matthias Bachinger To Win @ $3

Matthias Bachinger did the job for us against Steve Darcis in the opening round of Open 13 in Marseille and he is value to beat Fernando Verdasco. Verdasco is a player that I am generally looking to take on as a short-priced favourite and the different in hold/break percentage between Verdasco and Bachinger is not particularly big.

Wednesday 20th February

Matthias Bachinger vs Steve Darcis
10.00pm

Matthias Bachinger To Win @ $1.91

Matthias Bachinger is a an ATP journeyman that is arguably producing the best tennis of his career to date. He gave Tomas Berdych a serious scare at Montpellier a fortnight ago and his hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Steve Darcis, who is still on the comeback from injury.

Jaume Munar vs Cameron Norrie
12.00am

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $3

Jaume Munar has made an excellent start to the new season, but he is still under the odds for this clash with Cameron Norrie. Norrie is a very promising young player that I am expecting big things from in 2019 and his clay court record is actually fairly strong – especially for a British player. He is more than capable of recording an upset win at the Rio Open and at $3 he is well and truly over the odds.

Casper Ruud vs Joao Sousa
12.00am

Casper Ruud To Win @ $2.25

Casper Ruud has always been a player with plenty of promise and he has played some excellent tennis to qualify for this stage of the Rio Open. There is very little between the hold/break percentage of both players and there is no doubt that Ruud has more upside than Joao Sousa. Ruud is a player that I am looking to follow this season and there is plenty of money to be made backing the Norwegian.

Tuesday 19th February

Pablo Cuevas vs Diego Schwartzman
12.00am

Diego Schwartzman To Win @ $2

This is set to be a very interesting clash between Pablo Cuevas and Diego Schwartzman in the opening round of the Rio Open in Brazil. They have split their two previous meetings two wins apiece and Schwartzman does have a narrow edge in hold/break percentage on clay courts. His return game is nothing short of outstanding and that should prove to be the difference between the pair.

Nick Kyrgios vs John Millman
12.00am

John Millman To Win @ $2

The two Australians are set to do battle in the opening round of the Delray Beach Open. John Millman won the only previous meeting between the pair at the US Open and his hold/break percentage on hard court over the past 12 months is actually superior to that of Nick Kyrgios. Millman defintely has the game to frustrate Kyrgios and he is value to upset his countrymen.

Adrian Mannarino vs Brayden Schnur
2.00am

Brayden Schnur To Win @ $3

Brayden Schnur is coming off a career-best performance at the New York Open and he will go into the Delray Beach Open full of confidence. Adrian Mannarino is definitely a player that has gone backwards over the past 12 months and he is yet to win a match in 2019. Schnur has far more upside than his rival and the $9 that is currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Monday 18th February

Guido Pella vs Joao Sousa
12.00am

Guido Pella To Win @ $1.91

Joao Sousa may be the higher-ranked player and he is seeded at the Rio Open, but I am confident that Guido Pella is the better player, especially at clay. Pella has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of Sousa on clay and I think he should be a clear favourite for this clash.

Denis Istomin vs Feliciano Lopez
6.30am

Feliciano Lopez To Win @ $2.20

It is something of a surprise that Denis Istomin will go into this Delray Beach Open clash with Feliciano Lopez as favourite. Lopez has won the past three meetings between this pair and his hold/break percentage on hard courts is clearly superior to that of Istomin. Lopez should be favourite and the $2.20 that is currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Denis Kudla vs Mikhail Kukushkin
6.50am

Denis Kudla To Win @ $2.50

There really isn’t a great deal between these two players and Denis Kudla is well and truly over the odds at his current price. Kudla actually has a superior hold/break percentage on hard court than Mikhail Kukushkin and the $2.50 for him to win this clash at the Open 13 in Marseille is an outstanding price.

Saturday 16th February

John Isner vs Jordan Thompson
11.00am

Over 25.5 Games @ $1.83

This is going to be a very interesting clash between John Isner and Jordan Thompson and I think that it will be closer than the current market suggests. Thompson took a set over Isner the only previous time that they have met and it would not surprise to see him give him another scare. Two tie-breakers or three sets looks likely and the Over 25.5 Games is excellent value.

Gael Monfils vs Daniil Medvedev
1.00am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $2.75

I have been very impressed by the start that Gael Monfils has made to the year and he is a great bet to upset Daniil Medvedev in the semi-finals at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam. There is not a great deal between their hold/break percentages on hard courts and Monfils did not play at anywhere near his best when they did battle at the Sofia Open last week.

Friday 15th February

Guido Pella vs Jaume Munar
12.00am

Guido Pella To Win @ $2.10

Jaume Munar is coming off an upset win over Fabio Fognini and has made a simply outstanding start to the year, but I’m still surprised that he will go into this Argentinian Open clash with Guido Pella as favourite. Pella has a hold/break percentage on clay courts over the past 12 months that is clearly superior to that of Munar and he is well and truly over the odds at $2.10.

Stan Wawrinka vs Denis Shapovalov
5.30am

Denis Shapovalov To Win @ $2.10

He got the job done against Benoit Paire and he recorded an upset win over Milos Raonic, but I’m still happy to oppose Stan Wawrinka. Denis Shapovalov won the only previous meeting between the pair, at the Tokyo Open last year, and his hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is superior to that of Wawrinka.

Paolo Lorenzi vs Brayden Schnur
4.00am

Brayden Schnur To Win @ $1.91

Both Paolo Lorenzi and Brayden Schnur have made a fairly unlikely run to the quarter-finals of the New York Open. There is no doubt that Paolo Lorenzi would be the clear favourite for this match if it was played on clay, but his record on hard courts is very poor and he wins less than 35% of his matches on this surface. Schnur is a young player with talent and he beat Steve Johnson to qualify for this stage of the tournament.

Thursday 14th February

Mikhail Kukushkin vs Damir Dzumhur
9.00pm

Mikhail Kukushkin To Win @ $1.91

There is nothing between Mikhail Kukushkin and Damir Dzumhur ahead of this clash at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam. Dzumhur has won the previous two meetings between the pair, but there is no doubt that Kukushkin has improved over the past 12 months and his hold/break percentage on hardcourts is superior to that of his rival.

Reilly Opelka vs Denis Istomin
5.00am

Reilly Opelka To Win @ $1.80

Reilly Opelka is a player that I expect to make big strides in 2019 and I am surprised that he is not a dominant favourite for this clash with Denis Istomin. His serve is already one of the best on the entire ATP Tour and Istomin is fairly poor on return. Tie-breaks look likely and Istomin lost all five tie-breaks that he contested on hard courts last year.

Pablo Cuevas vs Joao Sousa
4.30am

Pablo Cuevas To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

Pablo Cuevas has turned into one of the best clay courters on the ATP Tour and he should prove too strong for Joao Sousa at the Argentinean Open. Cuevas has won the two previous clay court matches between the pair and he has done so without ever looking like dropping a set.

Wednesday 13th February

Sam Querrey vs Lloyd George Harris
1.30pm

Sam Querrey To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

It is somewhat of a surprise that Sam Querrey isn’t a dominant favourite for this New York Open clash with Lloyd George Harris. Harris doesn’t have a great record on the main ATP Tour and Querrey is a consistent player that rarely has issues beating players ranked lower than him. The $2.25 currently available for Querrey to win in straight sets is well and truly over the odds.

Martin Klizan vs Marton Fucsovics
8.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.10

There is very little between the rankings of Martin Klizan and Marton Fucsovics and it is Klizan that will start this clash as favourite. I think that the market is the wrong way around. Fucsovics is coming off an excellent run at the Sofia Open, where he was beaten in the final by Daniil Medvedev, and his hold/break percentage over the past 12 months is superior to that of Klizan. He won the previous meeting between the pair at the Davis Cup and he can win again.

Tuesday 12th February

Gilles Simon vs Tomas Berdych
1.00am

Tomas Berdych To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Historically there is not a great deal between Gilles Simon and Tomas Berdych, they have split their 14 meetings seven matches apiece, but Berdych has definitely had the upper hand in recent years. He has won the past three matches played between the pair in straight sets and he won their previous meeting at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam 6-2, 6-1. Berdych can cruise to a comfortable victory.

Reilly Opelka vs Adrian Mannarino
3.00am

Over 25.5 Games @ $1.91

Reilly Opelka is a younger version of John Isner and this New York City clash is set to be dominated by serve. Almost half of the sets that Opelka plays end up going to tie-breakers and service breaks are going to be very hard to come by. Even if one player is able to wrap this match up in straight sets, it is still likely that the Total Games line of 25.5 games will be covered.

Dusan Lajovic vs Leonardo Mayer
4.30am

Dusan Lajovic To Win @ $2.20

This is one of the most interesting matches in the opening round of the Argentina Open and there really isn’t a great deal between the two players. Dusan Lajovic finished 2018 with a superior hold/percentage on clay than Leonardo Mayer and he won the most recent meeting between the pair in Sweden in 2017. The $2.20 available for Lajovic to win is well and truly over the odds.

Monday 11th February

Mikhail Kukushkin vs Robin Haase
11.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.38

Mikhail Kukushkin hasn’t played much tennis on the main tour in 2019 to date, aside from being badly beaten by Lucas Pouille at the Australian Open, and I am surprised that Robin Haase isn’t a dominant favourite for this clash. It has been a fairly poor start to the year for Haase, but this is his weakest draw in a while and he does have a statistical edge over his rival.

Benoit Paire vs Stan Wawrinka
5.30am

Benoit Paire To Win @ $2.75

I have been very open about my willingness to take on Stan Wawrinka this season and it proved to be a profitable play last week. He faces an interesting opening round clash at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam and statistically there has been nothing between them on hard courts over the past 12 months. Paire didn’t play badly when he lost to Dominic Thiem at the Australian Open and he is great value to upset his rival.

Hyeon Ching vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
7.30am

Hyeon Chung To Win 2-0 @ $2.75

This is a tough draw for both players in the opening round of the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam. Nikoloz Bashilashvili is the seed for this tournament and is ranked inside the top 25, but I think that ranking is not a true indicator of his talent. Hyeon Chung’s hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Bashilashvili and I expect him to be too strong for his rival.

Saturday 9th February

Mattero Berrettini vs Marton Fucsovics
11.00pm

Marton Fucsovics To Win @ $2.38

Mattero Berrenttini continued his excellent run at the Sofia Open with an upset victory over Fernando Verdasco, but I am happy to take him on against Marton Fucsovics. Berrettini does have a stronger serve than Fucsovics, but the Hungarian is a much better player on return and his combined hold/break percentage is clearly superior to his rival. I’m surprised that he isn’t favourite and $2.38 is outstanding value.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert vs Tomas Berdych
1.00am

Tomas Berdych To Win 2-0 @ $2.20

Tomas Berdych is now in the box-seat to win the Open Sud De France in Montpellier and I expect him to be too strong for Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Berdych has a hold/break percentage that is clearly superior to that of his rival and he comfortably beat the Frenchmen 6-2, 6-4 when they met at Doha earlier this year. I expect to see a similar result in this contest.

Daniil Medvedev vs Gael Monfils
3.00am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $2.10

Both these players did the job for us yesterday to set-up this fascinating semi-final clash at the Sofia Open. It is very tough to separate these two players, their hold/break percentage is on hard courts over the past 12 months is basically identical, and because of that I have to side with Gael Monfils at his current price. He has played some excellent tennis during this tournament to date and he can record another upset win.

Friday 8th February

Fernando Verdasco vs Matteo Berrettini
11.00pm

Fernando Verdasco To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

Matteo Berrettini came from a set down to score an upset win over Karen Khachanov at the Sofia Open, but replicating that performance against Fernando Verdasco will be easier said than done. Verdasco has a clear statistical edge over Berrettini, especially on hard courts,  and Berrettini’s overall record on this surface is fairly poor.

Martin Klizan vs Daniil Medvedev
3.00am

Daniil Medvedev To Cover The Games Handicap (-4.5 Games) @ $2.25

Daniil Medvedev has made a very strong start to the new season and he should have too much firepower for Martin Klizan. Medvedev has a combined hold/break percentage of 108.9% on hard courts over the past 12 months and that dwarfs Klizan’s figure of 95.4%. If Medvedev produces anything like his best tennis, this could get fairly ugly and he is excellent value to cover the line.

Gael Monfils vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
5.00am

Gael Monfils To Win @ $2.38

I have been impressed with the tennis that Gael Monfils has produced at the Sofia Open to date and he is excellent value to record an upset win over Stefanos Tsitsipas. Monfils hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is better than that of Tsitsipas and I really don’t think that the Greek youngster should be such a clear favourite.

Thursday 7th February

Gael Monfils vs Mikhail Kukushkin
7.00pm

Gael Monfils To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

Gael Monfils is clearly superior to Mikhail Kukushkin in every key statistical metric and he should simply have too much fire-power for his rival. It is a surprise to me that Monfils isn’t shorter than his current price and the fact that almost even money is available for Monfils to win in straight sets is outstanding for value-hungry punters.

Jan-Lennard Struff vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
5.00am

Jan-Lennard Stuff To Win @ $3

There is no doubt that Stefanos Tsitsipas is a genuine star and one of the next big things on the ATP Tour, but consistency is still somewhat of an issue – especially in smaller tournaments like the Sofia Open. Jan-Lennard Struff is a more than capable player and his hold/break percentage on hard courts last season was only slightly inferior to that of his rival.

Jaume Munar vs Marco Cecchinato
5.30am

Marco Cecchinato To Win @ $2.10

It is a fairly big surprise that Marco Cecchinato will go into this clash with Jaume Munar as an underdog. Cecchinato has made a poor start to the season, but there is no doubt that he is a clay court specialist, he made the semi-finals at the French Open, and he is a completely different player on this service. His hold/break percentage on clay is clearly superior to that of Munar and he is outstanding value at his current price.

Wednesday 6th February

Mirza Basic vs Martin Klizan
7.00pm

Mirza Basic To Win @ $2.75

Mirza Basic goes into this clash at the Sofia Open with a genuine chance of recording an upset win over Martin Klizan. Basic has a decent record on hard courts on the main ATP Tour and he is a better player than his form towards the end of last year suggests. Klizan is definitely a better player on clay than he is on hard courts and I’m more than happy to take him on at the current price.

Ilya Ivashka vs Thomas Fabbiano
8.00pm

Thomas Fabbiano To Win @ $2.38

There really isn’t a great deal between these two players and I am surprised that such juicy odds are available for a Thomas Fabbiano victory. He is coming off a strong run at the Australian Open, which included a win over the highly-rated Reilly Opelka, and he is a player that the market still hasn’t caught up on. The Italian should be a narrow favourite and $2.38 is well and truly over the odds.

Marcel Granollers vs Denis Shapovalov
8.00pm

Denis Shapovalov To Win 2-0 @ $1.83

There is no doubt that Denis Shapovalov is a superior player to Marcel Granollers, especially on any other surface outside of clay, and he deserves his position as a dominant favourite. It really would not surprise if Shapovalov was able to blow Granollers off the court and $1.83 for a straight set Shapovalov win is genuine value.

Tuesday 5th February

Ernests Gulbis vs Hubert Hurkacz
10.00pm

Ernests Gulbis To Win @ $2.10

There are some queries over his fitness, but there is no doubt that Ernests Gulbis is a superior tennis player to Hubert Hurkacz and the $2.10 available for him to win in the opening round of the Open Sud De France in Marseille is well and truly over the odds. Gulbis’ hold/break percentage from the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Hurkacz and if he brings anything like his best form he will prove very tough to beat.

Denis Istomin vs Mattero Berrettini
2.00am

Denis Istomin To Win @ $2.50

There is nowhere near as much between these two players as the current market suggests. Matteo Berrettini has won only seven of this 19 matches on hard court on the main tour and there is no doubt that he is a better player on clay. It has been a very tough start to the year for Denis Istomin, but he has had a number of tough draws and this is his best chance to make a return to winning form.

Leonardo Mayer vs Federico Delbonis
10.00am

Leonardo Mayer To Win @ $1.91

This All-Argentinian clash is the most interesting match in the opening round of the Cordoba Open. There isn’t a great deal between these two players, but there is no doubt that Leonardo Mayer does have a stronger serve than Federico Delbonis and he has won the only previous meeting between the pair. Mayer really should be favourite and the $1.91 currently available is value.

Monday 4th February

Marcos Baghdatis vs Quentin Halys
12.00am

Marcos Baghdatis To Win 2-0 @ $2.25

Neither Marcos Baghdatis or Quentin Halys have made a particularly strong start to the new season, but Baghdatis has played some quality players and this is the softest draw that he has had for some time. His hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Halys and he should simply prove too strong for his rival in his Sofia Open clash.

Marius Copil vs Stan Wawrinka
2.00am

Marius Copil To Win @ $2.63

Stan Wawrinka is not the same player that he once was and I will be looking to take him on as much as possible this season. Marius Copil had a superior hold/break percentage to that of Wawrinka on hard courts 12 months ago and he is a player that has produced a number of strong performances on this surface at the Sofia Open. He is well and truly over the odds at his current price of $2.63.

Pablo Andujar vs Lorenzeo Sonego
5.30am

Pablo Andujar To Win @ $1.80

The ATP Tour is back after a week off for the Davis Cup and the inaugural Cordoba Open in Argentina is the first clay court tournament of the season. Pablo Andujar has not won a match on the main tour for a while, but he is definitely a strong player on clay and his hold/break percentage on the service last year was clearly superior to that of Lorenzeo Sonego. He is extremely well-placed to return to winning form and it is a surprise that he isn’t a shorter favourite.

Friday 1st February

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs Kiki Bertens
1.00am

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova To Win @ $2

This a rematch from the second round of the Australian Open. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova won that match and she has actually won the past two meetings between these two players. Kiki Bertens has made a slightly flat start to the new season, while Pavlyuchenkova has been playing at close to her top level and the $2 currently available does represent value.

Dennis Novak vs Christian Garin
2.30am

Dennis Novak To Win @ $2

Christian Garin (Chile) is a player that hasn’t had a great deal of success on the main ATP Tour and it is somewhat of a surprise that he will go into this Davis Cup clash with Dennis Novak (Austria) as favourite. Novak’s hold/break percentage on clay over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Garin and he also has the home court advantage.

Santiago Giraldo vs Ymer Elias
8.00am

Ymer Elias To Win 2-0 @ $2.63

Ymer Elias (Sweden) had injury issues last season, but he is defintely a player with plenty of potential and his form on the Challenger Tour has been fairly strong. Santiago Giraldo (Colombia) has won only four of his past ten games Davis Cup matches and I don’t think that he has the quality to match it with a firing Elias.

Thursday 31st January

Ekaterina Alexandrova vs Tereza Martincova
9.00pm

Tereza Martincova To Win @ $3.25

Tereza Martincova has won two of her three previous matches against Ekaterina Alexandrova  and there is no way that she should be such long odds to win this clash at the St Petersburg Open. Martincova has won six of her seven matches this season for a big betting profit and there is no reason she can’t continue her excellent form against Alexandrova.

Alison Van Uytvanck vs Aryna Sabalenka
10.00pm

Alison Van Uytvanck To Win @ $2.63

Alison Van Uytvanck won the only previous match between her and Aryna Sabalenka and she has shown signs of finding a semblance of her best form. I’m not sure that Sabalenka is as good of a player as her current ranking suggests and I don’t think that there should be as big a gap between the odds of the two players.

Wednesday 30th January

Jelena Ostapenko vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
5.00pm

Jelena Ostapenko To Win @ $3.25

It has been a tough start to the year for Jelena Ostapenko, but she is still well and truly over the odds to upset Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Ostapenko won the previous match between the pair and there is no doubt that she is a better player than her recent form suggests. I am more than happy to take advantage of the $3.25 that is currently available.

Petra Kvitova vs Victoria Azarenka
11.00pm

Victoria Azarenka To Win @ $2.63

It is somewhat of a surprise that Petra Kvitova has taken her place in the St Petersburg Ladies Trophy field after her deep run at the Australian Open. She has had to do plenty of travel in a short period of time and there is no doubt that she won’t be at her best. In contrast, Victoria Azarenka will be nice and fresh after her abbreviated Australian Open campaign and she did win the most recent meeting between the pair.

Kevin King vs Roberto Quiroz
4.00am

Kevin King To Win @ $1.83

This is one of the most interesting matches in the early round of the Cleveland Challenger. On Clay, you would give a clear edge to Roberto Quiroz, but his hardcourt record is very poor and because of that the edge is defintely in favour of Kevin King. It would not surprise if he started this match as a clear favourite.

Tuesday 29th January

Jennifer Brady vs Caroline Garcia
8.00pm

Caroline Garcia To Win 2-0 @ $2.20

There are a number of interesting matches in the opening round of the Thailand Open and this is one of them. It is somewhat of a surprise that Caroline Garcia will not start this match as a shorter-priced favourite. She has won her previous two matches against Jennifer Brady in straight sets and she is coming off a solid effort at the Australia Open. She should prove too strong for her rival.

Victoria Azarenka vs Margarita Gasparyan
1.00am

Margarita Gasparyan To Win @ $1.80

Victoria Azarenka has won her two previous meetings with Margarita Gasparyan, but there is no doubt that Azarenka is not the same player that she once was. Gasparyan has played well to qualify for the main draw of the tournament and she is a player that is generally underrated by the market – backing her in each of her matches over the past 12 months has proven to be a highly profitably endeavor.

Australian Open Finals Tips

Naomi Osaka vs Petra Kvitova
7.30pm

Petra Kvitova To Win @ $1.80

Naomi Osaka has gone to another level since her breakthrough win at the US Open, but Petra Kvitova might be playing the best tennis of her life. Kvitova was nothing short of dominant against Ash Barty in the quarter-finals and her serve is just about unbreakable. She should be a clear favourite and should prove too strong for Barty.

Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal
7.30pm

Novak Djokovic To Win @ $1.73

This is the final that we have all been waiting for. Rafael Nadal is yet to drop a set during the tournament to date and is playing extremely well, but a firing Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open is just about unbeatable. Djokovic is 27-25 against Nadal, but more importantly he is 18-7 on hardcourts and he won their only previous meeting at the Australian Open.

Australian Open Day 12 Tips

Sam Stosur/Zhang Shuai vs Kristina Mladenovic/Timea Babos
4.00pm

Stosur/Zhang To Win @ $2.63

Say what you will about Sam Stosur, and we have done, but she is a simply outstanding doubles player and she has an excellent opportunity to claim a maiden Australian Open Women’s Doubles title. The combination of Stosur and Zhang Shuai have already eliminated the top seeds from the tournament and there is no reason that they can’t beat Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos. The $2.63 currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Novak Djokovic vs Lucas Pouille
7.30pm

Novak Djokovic To Cover The Total Games Line (-8.5 Games)

Lucas Pouille has had the tournament of his life, but Novak Djokovic represents a completely different challenge. Djokovic is just about unbeatable at the Australian Open when he if fully fit and there is a reason that he is such a dominant favourite. Djokovic is simply on another level to Pouille and it really would not surprise if this match was wrapped up extremely quickly.

Australian Open Day 11 Tips

Petra Kvitova vs Danielle Rose Collins
2.00pm

Over 21.5 Total Games @ $2.25

There is no doubt that Petra Kvitova deserves to go into this clash with Danielle Rose Collins as a clear favourite, but Collins will not be a pushover. The two did battle in the opening round of the Brisbane International and Kvitova only narrowly recorded a 6-7, 7-6, 6-3 win. The big serve of Collins will keep her in the contest and the Total Games line of 21.5 games could easily be covered in only two sets.

Karolina Pliskova vs Naomi Osaka
3.30pm

Karolina Pliskova To Win @ $1.91

Karolina Pliskova came back from 5-1 down in the third set to beat Serena Williams and she played some simply outstanding tennis in the process. Naomi Osaka has played some good tennis to qualify for this stage of the tournament, but this is her toughest test to date and she has lost two of her past three matches against Pliskova. I’m on Pliskova to win the tournament, so hopefully she continues her winning ways!

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Rafael Nadal
7.30pm

Rafael Nadal To Win The 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $1.95

Rafael Nadal has been nothing short of outstanding during his Australian Open campaign to date and the Game, Set, Match market has gone off in four of his five matches. There is no doubt that Stefanos Tsitsipas has gone to a new level during the Australian Open to date, but he has had a couple of tough matches and Nadal can grind him into the ground with his unrelenting pressure.

Australian Open Day 10 Tips

Naomi Osaka vs Elina Svitolina
11.00am

Elina Svitolina To Win @ $2.10

There is no reason that Elina Svitolina should be the outsider for this clash with Naomi Osaka. Svitolina has won nine of her past ten matches, highlighted by her win at the WTA Championships, and she has won her past two meetings with Osaka in very comfortable fashion. Osaka’s US Open win means that she has become overrated by the market and I’m more than happy to take her on in this match.

Milos Raonic vs Lucas Pouille
2.30pm

Over 12.5 Games First Set @ $2.75

This is set to be a match that is dominated by big serving and the $2.75 that is available for the first set to be decided in a tiebreaker is well and truly over the odds. Milos Raonic holds serve 90% of the time when he plays on hard courts and Lucas Pouille’s serve has been excellent during the Australian Open to date. You can expect this to be a fairy nervy affair and both players will rely on their serve.

Novak Djokovic vs Kei Nishikori
7.30pm

Novak Djokovic To Win The 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match

Novak Djokovic is a dominant favourite to win the Australian Open for a record-breaking seventh time and he should have no issues putting away Kei Nishikori. Djokovic has won his past 15 meetings with Nishikori and he hasn’t lost to his rival since the 2014 US Open. This is the perfect time to take advantage of our Game, Set, Match market.

Australian Open Day 9 Tips

Roberto Bautista-Agut vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
12.30pm

Roberto Bautista Agut To Win @ $2

I have underestimated Stefanos Tsitsipas throughout the Australian Open and he made me look foolish when he beat Roger Federer on Sunday night. In saying that, I am happy to take him on once again. The emotional high of beating Federer may prove tough for Tsitsipas to bounce back from and Roberto Bautista Agut is no pushover. His hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is superior to that of Tsitsipas and he has been extremely tough during the Australian Open to date.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs Danielle Rose Collins
2.30pm

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova @ $1.73

This is a huge opportunity for both Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Danielle Rose Collins. Collins comes into this match on the back of a dominant win over Angelique Kerber, but that was more about how poorly Kerber played than an outstanding effort from the American. Pavlyuchenkova has had a tough draw and I think that she can win again to qualify for a maiden grand slam semi final.

Petra Kvitova vs Ash Barty
7.00pm

Ash Barty To Win @ $2.25

Ash Barty produced one of the best performances of her career to beat Maria Sharapova in the fourth round and there is no reason that she can’t continue on her winning ways against Petra Kvitova. Kvitova did beat Barty when they met in the final of the Sydney International, but there was absolutely nothing between them. If Barty can maintain her composure on the big points, she is the one to beat.

Australian Open Day 8 Tips

Elina Svitolina vs Madison Keys
11.00am

Elina Svitolina To Win @ $2.38

Madison Keys has won her two previous matches with Elina Svitolina, but there is no doubt that Svitolina has improved over the past 12 months. Svitolina has won seven of her past eight matches, following her amazing run at the WTA Championships, and she is playing the best Tennis of her career. Keys has looked good during the Australian Open to date, but I can’t get her as short as her current price.

Pablo Carreno-Busta vs Kei Nishikori
6.00pm

Pablo Carreno-Busta To Win @ $5

There is no doubt that Kei Nishikori deserves to go into this clash with Pablo Carreno Busta as favourite, but there is not as much between them as the current betting market suggests. Nishikori has a hold/break percentage that is only slightly higher than that of Carreno-Busta on hard courts over the past 12 months and he has already played two tough five-setters at the tournament. The $5 for a Carreno-Busta win is well and truly over the odds.

Simona Halep vs Serena Williams
7.00pm

Serena Williams To Win 2-0 @ $2

Simona Halep may be the world number one, but there is still no doubt that the best female tennis player in the world is Serena Williams. Williams has won eight of her nine previous meetings with Halep and five of those victories came in straight sets. Williams continues to perform at an ultra-high level and she can continue her dominance over Halep.

Roger Federer vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
8.00pm

Roger Federer To Win 3-0 @ $1.91

There is a lot of hype surrounding Stefanos Tsitsipas at the moment and he is definitely a star of the future, but he is still not anywhere near the level of Roger Federer. Federer has an incredible record of winning matches at the Australian Open in straight sets and he can continue that in this clash.

Rafael Nadal vs Tomas Berdych
3.30pm

Rafael Nadal To Win 3-0 @ $1.83

Rafael Nadal has won 14 of his past 15 matches against Tomas Berdych and all bar three of those wins have been in straight sets. There is no doubt that Berdych’s level has dropped over the past 18 months and he will be no match for a firing Rafeal Nadal.

Sloane Stephens vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
10.00pm

Slone Stephens To Win 2-0 @ $2.50

Sloane Stephens has not dropped a set during her Australian Open campaign to date and she looks in simply outstanding touch. She has won her two previous matches with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and she should have too muqhc quality for her rival.

Australian Open Day 6 Tips

David Goffin vs Daniil Medvedev
1.00pm

David Goffin To Win @ $2.75

David Goffin has been a top twenty player for five years, but he is still consistently underrated by the market. He did have his injury problems last season, but he still finish with a better hold/break percentage on hard courts than Daniil Medvedev and he has made a strong start to his Australian Open campaign. I rate Medvedev as a player and he does have top ten potential, but I can’t get him as short as his current price.

Fabio Fognini vs Pablo Carreno-Busta
3.00pm

Pablo Carreno-Busta To Win @ $2.25

Fabio Fognini and Pablo Carreno-Busta are very tough to seperate and that means that the value does lie with the Spaniard. Pablo Carreno-Busta does have a significantly stronger serve than Fabio Fognini and Carreno-Busta has won the five previous matches that have been played between the pair. He is another player that is generally underrated by the market and the $2.25 currently available is over the odds.

 

Timea Bacsinszky vs Garbine Muguruza
7.00pm

Garbine Muguruza To Win 2-0 @ $2.10

Garbine Muguruza has an excellent head-to-head record against Timea Bacsinszky and she has also won their two previous Grand Slam meetings.  Muguruza comes into this clash on the back of a tough win over Johanna Konta and she will go into this clash with plenty of confidence. She should have too much power for Bacsinszky and she can cruise to a straight sets win.

Camilia Giorgi vs Karolina Pliskova
8.30pm

Karolina Pliskova To Win 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $2.50

Karolina Pliskova is my value selection to win the 2019 Australian Open and I think that she should prove too strong for Camilia Giorgi. Pliskova has won four of her five meetings with Camilia Giorgi and I am surprised that such a juicy price is available for the Czech. She is the perfect candidate for our Game, Set, Match market and the $2.50 for her to win the first game, first set and the match is excellent value.

Australian Open Day 5 Tips

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Nikoloz Basilashvili
11.00am

Nikoloz Basilashvili To Win @ $3.40

Stefanos Tsitsipas is a player with enormous upside, but at this stage of his career I don’t think that there is as much between him and Nikoloz Basilashvili. Their hold/break percentages on hard courts last season were very similar and Basilashvili has the ability to put pressure on the serve of Tsitsipas. This is a big moment for Tsitsipas and I am happy to take him on at the current odds.

Tomas Berdych vs Diego Sebastian Schwartzman
11.00am

Tomas Berdych To Win 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $2.30

Diego Schwartzman has played some quality tennis to make it to this stage of the Australian Open, but he doesn’t have the firepower to match it with Tomas Berdych. Schwartzman has won only nine of his previous 43 matches against top 20 opposition and the hold/break percentage of Berdych on hard courts is clearly superior. This is the perfect time to take advantage of our market that allows you to back players to win the 1st Game, 1st Set and the match.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Thomas Fabbiano
3.30pm

Thomas Fabbiano To Win @ $7.50

For the second round in a row, I am keen to take on Grigor Dimitrov at short odds. He was eventually able to beat Pablo Cuevas, but not before a few nervous moments. Thomas Fabbiano is a player that does have more ability than his current rankings suggests and he has played some excellent tennis to make it to this stage of the tournament. The Italian is worth a gamble at his current odds of $7.50.

Maria Sharapova vs Caroline Wozniacki
3.30pm

Maria Sharapova To Win @ $2

Maria Sharapova has looked nothing short of outstanding during her Australian Open campaign to date and it is somewhat of a surprise that she will go into this clash with Caroline Wozniacki as the underdog. Sharapova has the superior head-to-head record and I think that she has returned to semblance of her best form after what was a fairly tough 2018.

Australian Open Day 4 Tips

Ivo Karlovic vs Kei Nishikori
11.00am

Ivo Karlovic To Win @ $5.50

Ivo Karlovic is always a very tricky opponent and he has given Kei Nishikori trouble in the past. Nishikori is coming off a tough five-setter in his opening round match and fitness could be a concern as he continues to work his way back from injury. Fitness is always an issue for Karlovic, but his serve keeps him in just about every match and the $5.50 that is currently available is over the odds.

Fabio Fognini vs Leonardo Mayer
1.30pm

Fabio Fognini To Win 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $2.50

Fabio Fognini has improved significantly on hard courts over the past 12 months and he has a clear edge over Leonardo Mayer on this surface. Fognini has become one of the strongest returners on the ATP Tour and that makes him the perfect candidate for our Game, Set, Match market, which allows you to back any player to win the 1st Game, the 1st Set and the Match.

Lucas Pouille vs Maximilian Marterer
2.15pm

Lucas Pouille To Beat The Games Handicap (-2.5 Games) @ $2

I think that Lucas Pouille should be much shorter than his current price of $1.73 and he is great value to cover the Games Handicap of 2.5 games. Pouille’s hold/break percentage on hard courts over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Maximilian Marterer and Marterer struggles on return. It would not surprise to see Pouille cruise to a straight sets victory.

Serena Williams vs Eugenie Bouchard
6.00pm

Serena Williams To Win 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $1.80

Serena Williams was nothing short of dominant against Tatjana Maria in the opening round of the Australian Open and she looks to be at her very best. Eugenie Bouchard still makes plenty of headlines, but her game has gone backwards over the past couple of years and this could get ugly. The $1.80 on offer for Serena Williams To Win the 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match is simply outstanding value.

Australian Open Day 3 Tips

Roberto Bautista-Agut vs John Millman
5.00pm

John Millman To Win @ $3.50

I am usually keen to oppose the locals at the Australian Open, but John Millman is well and truly over the odds at his current price of $3.50. Roberto Bautista-Agut heads into this clash on the back of an emotional win over Andy Murray and Millman will force him to work on what will be a very hot day in Melbourne. Millman’s hold/break percentage on hard courts last season was only narrowly worse than that of Bautista-Agut and I am happy to gamble on the Aussie, who knows what it takes to record a big Grand Slam win.

Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Stefano Travaglia
11.00am

Stefano Travaglia To Win @ $3.50

Stefano Travaglia qualified for the Australian Open in impressive fashion and he is clearly playing some of the best Tennis of his life. Nikoloz Basilashvili had a strong run at both the US Open and the Australian Open last year and that has improved his ranking substantially over the past 12 months, but I think that he might be a touch overrated by the market. He is a player that I am generally keen to oppose and Travaglia is worth a gamble at the current price.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Pablo Cuevas
6.30pm

Pablo Cuevas To Win @ $6.50

This is a big gamble, but it is definitely one worth taking. Grigor Dimitrov was relatively unconvincing in the opening round of the Australian Open against Janko Tipsarevic, and I’m not sure that he is playing at his best. Pablo Cuevas had an underrated record on hard courts last season and I think that he is more than capable of giving Dimitrov a genuine scare. Dimitrov is capable of throwing in a sneaker and the $6.50 definitely appeals.

Diego Schwartzman vs Denis Kudla
11.00am

Diego Schwartzman To Win The 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $2.40

Diego Schwartzman has made an excellent start to the Australian Summer of Tennis and I think that he should prove far too strong for Denis Kudla. For every match at the Australian Open, we are offering markets for either player to win the 1st Game, 1st Set and the match. This is one of the matches where that market really does appeal.

Australian Open Day 2 Tips

Nicolas Jarry vs Leonardo Mayer
11.00am

Nicolas Jarry To Win @ $2.10

There is not a great deal between Nicolas Jarry and Leonardo Mayer, but I still think that the market should be switched. Jarry finished 2018 with a superior hold/break percentage than Mayer on hard courts and he is the player with the stronger serve. Mayer has won only three of his 11 career matches at the Australian Open and I am more than happy to take him on in this scenario.

Laslo Djere vs Evgeny Donskoy
12.15pm

Evgeny Donskoy To Win @ $2.15

It has come as a huge shock to me that Laslo Djere has opened as such a short-priced favourite in this Australian Open clash. Djere only won two out of ten matches on hard courts in 2018 and he has won only one of his past six Grand Slam fixtures. Evgeny Donskoy is no superstar, but his hard court record is clearly superior to that of Djere and he has had some success at the Australian Open in the past.

Guido Pella vs Joao Sousa
1.00pm

Guido Pella To Win @ $2.25

This is another match where I believe that the market is around the wrong way. Guido Pella finished 2018 with a superior hold/break percentage than Joao Sousa on hard courts and Pella is a player that has shown good endurance at Grand Slams in the past – he is unbeaten in five set matches. I really would not be surprised if this match went the distance and his superior fitness can help him to an upset win.

Marcel Granollers vs Marius Copil
2.15pm

Marius Copil To Win The 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $2.75

Marcel Granollers has struggled badly over the past couple of seasons and he has never been a particularly strong player on hard courts. The Australian Open has generally not been a happy hunting ground for him and he has never made it past the second round. Marius Copil finished 2017 with a winning record on this surface and he has never been better placed to end his Grand Slam losing streak. He is great value at $2.75 in our Game, Set, Match featured market.

Stan Wawrinka vs Ernests Gulbis
3.30pm

Ernests Gulbis To Win @ $3.50

Stan Wawrinka has an excellent record at the Australian Open, he won the tournament in 2014, but he is not the player that he once was and he is coming off a truly awful 2018. Wawrinka won only four Grand Slam matches last season and he faces a stiff assignment against Ernests Gulbis. Gulbis struggles for consistency, but he has serious ability on his day and he showed he still has it with his fourth round run at Wimbledon last year. He is worth a gamble at juicy odds.

Australian Open Day 1 Tips

Michael Mmoh vs Radu Albot
11.00am

Michael Mmoh To Win The 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match @ $3

Michael Mmoh is a player that has much more ability than his current record suggests and Radu Albot is the ideal first round draw for him at the Australian Open. Mmoh has a hold/break percentage on hardcourts that is clearly superior to that of Albot and there is no doubt that he has upside. Throughout the Australian Open, we are offering markets for either player to win the 1st Game, 1st Set & The Match and that is where the value lies in this clash.

Miomir Kecmanovic vs Fernando Verdasco
11.00am

Miomir Kecmanovic To Win @ $2.50

Fernando Verdasco may be one of the most inconsistent players on the entire ATP Tour and I am always happy to take him on in the early stages of Grand Slams events. He isn’t getting any younger and his level has definitely dropped over the past 12 months. Miomir Kecmanovic is a strong server and a player on the rise that I am confident is more than capable of beating Verdasco at the Australian Open.

Pablo Cuevas vs Dusan Lajovic
12.15pm

Pablo Cuevas To Win @ $2.75

Neither Pablo Cuevas or Dusan Lajovic have a great record on hard courts, but Cuevas is a player who often is underrated by the market and especially on the faster surfaces. He is a much stronger server than Lajovic and there is no way that he should be available at his juicy quote of $2.75.

Viktor Troicki vs Roberto Carballes Baena
2.15pm

Roberto Carballes Baena To Win @ $3.40

Viktor Troicki had a very poor 2018 and he had to qualify to make it into the main draw at the Australian Open. Roberto Carballes Baena is a much stronger player on clay courts than he is on hard courts, but he is a player that is improving on the faster surface and there is nowhere near as much between him and Troicki has the current betting market suggests.

Cameron Norrie vs Taylor Harry Fritz
5.00pm

Cameron Norrie To Win @ $1.80

This is one of the most interesting matches in the first round of the Australian Open. Cameron Norrie and Taylor Harry Fritz are two of the most talented young players on the ATP Tour and both have made strong starts to the seasons. Norrie made it all the way to the final of the Auckland Open and he does have a return game that is clearly superior to that of Fritz. That gives him the edge and there is value at his quote of $1.80.

Andreas Seppi vs Deigo Schwartzman
3.30pm

Andreas Seppi To Win @ $2.70

We have backed Andreas Seppi throughout the Sydney International and we are not dropping off the Italian in this semi-final clash with Diego Schwartzman. There really is not a great deal between these two players statistically and Seppi heads into this match on the back of a big upset win over Stefanps Tsitsipas. The $2.70 currently available is well and truly over the odds.

Gilles Simon vs Alex De Minaur
8.30pm

Gilles Simon To Win @ $2.90

Alex De Minaur obviously has the home court advantage and he has made an excellent start to the Summer of tennis, but he is well and truly under the odds in this semi-final with Gilles Simon. Simon’s hold/break percentage over the past 12 months on hard courts is superior to that of De Minaur and he showed his composure with his narrow victory over John Millman in the quarter-final. There is no way that he should be $2.90.

Ash Barty vs Kiki Bertens
2.00pm

Kiki Bertens To Win @ $2.44

Ash Barty is another Aussie that is under the odds at the Sydney International. She has obviously been outstanding at the tournament to date, her win over Simona Halep was excellent, but she faces a tough assignment against Kiki Bertens. Bertens is one of the best returners on the WTA Tour and she should be able to put some pressure on the Barty serve.

Thursday 10th January

Taylor Henry Fritz vs Cameron Norrie
2.00pm

Cameron Norrie To @ $2.10

Cameron Norrie did the job for us at the Auckland Open yesterday and there is no reason that he can’t continue his strong start to the year. Taylor Harry Fritz is another talented young player, but I’m not sure that he has as much upside as Norrie. Norrie finished 2018 with a superior hold/break percentage on hard courts than Fritz and the $2.10 currently available is over the odds.

Diego Schwartzman vs Yoshihito Nishioka
3.00pm

Diego Schwartzman To Win @ $2

Yoshihito Nishioka has made an outstanding start to the season and has already gained some big wins, but I can’t get him as short as his current quote in this clash with Diego Schwartzman. Schwartzman is an underrated player on hard courts and his hold/break percentage on the surface over the past 12 months is clearly superior to that of Nishioka. He should be favourite for this clash.

Alex De Minaur vs Jordan Thompson
4.00pm

Alex De Minaur To Win 2-0 @ $1.91

Alex De Minaur comfortably accounted for fellow Aussie Jordan Thompson in straight sets (6-4, 6-2) at the Brisbane International and there is no reason that he can’t repeat that at the Sydney International. De Minaur is far stronger on serve than Thompson and he should have no issues breaking the serve of Thompson, who held serve in only 69% of games on hard courts last year.

Wednesday 9th January

Cameron Norrie vs Joao Sousa
9.00am

Cameron Norrie To Win 2-0 @ $2.38

Cameron Norrie is a player that I expect big things from in 2019 and on hard court, he should prove far too strong for Joao Sousa. Norrie’s hold and break percentage on hard court was superior to that of Sousa in 2018 and Norrie still has upside, while Sousa has definitely reached his level. Norrie was absolutely outstanding against Beniot Paire in the opening round of the tournament and a repeat of that effort would make him very tough to beat at the Auckland Open.

Martin Klizan vs Andreas Seppi
5.00pm

Andreas Seppi To Win @ $1.91

Andreas Seppi did the job for us against Jeremy Chardy yesterday and I am keen to back the Italian once again. His hold/break percentage of 102.2% on hard courts last season is clearly superior to that of Martin Klizan and Seppi has won three of the four matches played between the pair. Klizan is a player that I am generally keen to oppose and I have Seppi rated as a clear favourite for this clash.

Sam Querrey vs Gilles Simon
7.00pm

Sam Querrey To Win @ $1.91

The market can’t separate this pair, but I give Sam Querrey a narrow edge. Querrey is easily the strongest server of the two and that plays into his advantage on what are generally quick courts at the Sydney International. His overall hard court hold/break percentage is superior to that of Gilles Simon and he made a strong start to the tournament with his victory over Malik Jaziri in the opening round of the tournament.

 

Tuesday 8th January

Jeremy Chardy vs Andreas Seppi
11.00am

Andreas Seppi To Win @ $3

Jeremy Chardy made a deep run at the Brisbane International and there is no doubt that he will be fatigue heading into the Sydney International. Andreas Seppi finished the 2018 season with a hold/break percentage of 102.2% on hard courts and that is clearly superior to that of Chardy. Seppi has an excellent record in Sydney and he is great value to score his first win of the season.

Guido Pella vs Peter Gojowczyk
12.00am

Guido Pella To Win @ $2

These are two very evenly-matched players, as the market suggests, but I think that the market should be flipped. Guido Pella finished 2018 with a superior hold/break percentage on hard court than that of Peter Gojowczyk, who was very disappointing last week in the Qatar Open. Gojowczyk still has some fitness concerns and I am happy to take him on in this match.

Daria Kasatkina vs Aliaksandra Sasnovich
11.00am

Aliaksandra Sasnovich To Win @ $1.80

Aliaksandra Sasnovich beat Daria Kasatkina 2-0 when they met at the US Open last year and she should be able to repeat the doze at the Sydney International. Sasnovich won 22 of her 31 matches on hard courts last season, while Kasatkina struggled on the surface somewhat.

Monday 7th January

Dominika Cibulkova vs Sam Stosur
3.00pm

Sam Stosur To Win @ $3

Back Sam Stosur in Australia, or anywhere for that matter, is always dangerous, but you can’t ignore the value that is on offer in this clash with Dominika Cibulkova. Stosur has won five of her seven career meetings with Cibulkova and there is nowhere near as much between them as the current market suggests.

Reilly Opelka vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas
3.00pm

Reilly Opelka To Win 2-0 @ $2.35

Reilly Opelka is a young clone of fellow American John Isner and big things are expected of him this season. He is the tallest player in the history of the ATP Tour and his serving statistics are right up there with the best players in the game. He played well in qualifying to make it into the main draw of this tournament and, on a quick hard court, he should have too much fire-power for Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

Ryan Harrison vs Yoshihito Nishioka
6.30pm

Ryan Harrison To Win @ $2.20

Yoshihito Nishioka played some quality tennis to qualify for the Sydney International, but he is well and truly under the odds in this contest. Ryan Harrison has had injury issues over the past 12 months, but his hold/break percentage of 102.7% on hardcourts is clearly superior to that of Nishioka. The quick Sydney courts will favour Harrison and he is a great bet to claim his first win of 2019.
