Hopefully no more outages for Betfair to be “really sorry” about.
ATP Stockholm, 11:00 – Young v L Mayer
They have played on an outdoor hard court but that was 2 years ago in America. Young still doesn’t travel well.
Mayer has been in decent form on the hard courts to say he is a clay courter. he came close to beating Federer in Shanghai last week and had match points in their third set tie break. Will that affect him in this one? Possibly. He can have a dip in form after a good week but has been more consistent this season.
Mayer starts at 1.60 which feels a little low. Both players are big servers so it will be a tight match. Young has a slightly better record on indoor hard courts but both have only played one match indoors this season.
I am going with Mayer to get the win but I will wait for a price nearer evens before backing.
WTA Kremlin Cup, 12:00 – Vesnina v Siniakova
Siniakova lost last week to Koukalova. Neither played well and we have seen in later matches how well Koukalova is playing.
Vesnina has had her problems this season and will want to end it in a positive way in her home country.
Vesnina did reach the third round at the US Open but hasn’t played since then. She didn’t play well in her doubles match yesterday but that is understandable with it being her first competitive match in a while.
1.90 on Vesnina does look tempting and i will have a small back on her from the start and see how the match starts. if she does start ok the market will soon move towards her.
