ATP Shanghai Rolex Masters, 11:00 – Tsonga v Robredo
Robredo won their only previous meeting. That was back in 2008 at the US Open an he won in 3 sets.
Tsonga has a decent record at this tournament but didn’t play last year. He was poor last week but may have been resting for this event.
Rob definitely wanted to rest last week after playing a fair amount of tennis recently.He looked very tired in his last match.
I favour Tsonga for the win but expect 3 sets. Back Tsonga if he gets broken first.
WTA General Ladies Linz, 14:00 – Gasparyan v Witthoeft
Gasparyan has been doing well in ITF tournaments this season. She often lets herself down in WTA events and can be very inconsistent.
Witthoeft can lift her game against the better players but can struggle for motivation against lower ranked opposition.
I am going with Gasparyan for the win in tight sets. Back her above 2.00
