WTA AEOGON International, Eastbourne, 14:00 – Riske v Cornet
Riske Won their only previous meeting. That was on an indoor hard court in 2011. She won in straight sets.
Riske has a better grass record over the last 12 months. She has lost to Konjuh and Mladenovic in her 2 grass tournaments and kept both matches close.
Cornet lost her only grass match of the season to McHale who was terrible in her next match. She’s not the best grass courter on tour.
I have to go with Riske today but would prefer a higher price. Cornet should be able to push the price up but Riske is more solid on grass. Back Riske above 1.80
ATP AEGON Open, Nottingham, 15:30 – Almagro v Istomin
Istomin leads the head to head 3-0. Their only grass match was in 2010 and Almagro retired in the second set..
Istomin isn’t in great form and he has lost 2 of his 3 grass matches this season.
Almagro hasn’t played since the French Open but is a strong grass player when fit. I am favouring Almagro ton win a tight match. His serve is very effective on grass and his back hand will give Istomin some problems.
Lay Istomin below 1.50
