WTA Nurnberger Gastein Ladies, 13:15 – Beck v Allertova
Beck won their only previous meeting in 2014. That was on a hard court and she won in 2 sets.
Beck wasn’t serving well yesterday but Pereira was injured. She was still broken twice in that set before Pereira retired at 5-2.
Allertova served reasonably well in her 3 set win over Witthoeft.
I am going with Allertova today but will wait to back her above 2.00. She should get a lot of break chances
ATP SkiStar Swedish Open, 14:30 – Zverev v Monaco
Zverev is having an excellent season. In May he won a title on clay in a Challenger. He has had some very creditable performances against strong opposition.
Monaco hasn’t been at his best this year. He did reach the final in Buenos Aires in Feb but has been inconsistent.
I think Zverev will be up for this one. He has already played a 3 set match this week whereas Monaco hasn’t played since the 2nd round at Wimbledon. I think the sets will be tight.
Lay Monaco when he is a break ahead. It looks like a 3 setter. Monaco will prob find a way to win but it will be close.
