1st April 2015

I did it again. Forgot my Godmother’s birthday. How do you forget someone’s birthday when it’s April 1st??



ATP Miami Open, 20:00 – Thiem v Murray

Murray leads the head to heads 1-0. That was in 2014 on an indoor hard court and went to  3 sets.

Thiem’s last 3 matches were against in form players. Sock, Lopez and Mannarino. In his first match his 2nd serve was letting him down but since then he has served at a very high level.

Murray’s serve has also been pretty good although against Anderson his 2nd serve dropped below 50% of points won. However he had a respectable sfirt serve percentage of 60% and won 84% of points on the first serve.

I expect the sets to be close. Lay Murray for a trade. He wins in 2 close sets or perhaps another 3 setter.



ATP Miami Open, 02:00 – Berdych v Monaco

Berdych leads the head to heads 7-0. The most recent was in 2012 on clay clay and went to 5 sets.

Berdych has lost a few sets this season that you wouldn’t really expect him to. .

On outdoor hard courts they have played 6 sets. Berdych lead 5-1. Monaco’s set was back in 2008.

Monaco had a good straight sets win over a tired Verdasco in the last round. Him winning a set isn’t out of the question but Berdych wins this. Wait for an early Monaco break before backing Berdych.
