21st May 2014

ATP Nice, 10:00Isner has beaten Jack Sock in both their previous meetings. He is the top seed this week but lost in the same  round last year, also as a slight favourite.

Sock has come through 3 qualifying rounds although he had easy opponents. He beat De Schepper in the first round in straight sets.

Isner is a decent clay court player and could be looking to get some rest before next week. A little court time won’t hurt his preparation though and I don’t see him throwing this match.

Sock has had 4 matches to get used to the conditions and that may tip things in his direction. As long as Sock is able to put pressure on Isner’s serve then I will look to lay Isner below 1.40.

It should be a tight match but don’t be surprised to see Isner go out.

Update: Limp performance in the end from Sock. Isner won 6-4, 6-3.


ATP Dusseldorf, 13:00Melzer has played well this week but today’s opponent has beaten him in both their previous matches. Sousa’s recent form isn’t great though and so I expect Melzer to get the win. However he doesn’t often do things the easy way and I will wait for him to go a break behind before backing him.


More to come unless our Grandchild finally arrives today. He/she is over a week overdue 🙂

    First, very best wishes for the new arrival – I hope all goes smoothly.

    A quick question on your daily home page selections – are they intended to be traded, or simple backs or lays ???
