ATP Argentina Open, 21:45 – L Mayer v Robert
Robert leads the head to heads 2-1. They are 1-1 on clay. All their matches were won in 2 sets. Robert won their most recent meeting in 2014.
Both are in poor recent form. Mayer retired last week but that could have been precautionary as he will have wanted to be fit for his home tournament. He only reached the 2nd round last year though losing to Fognini.
Robert retired from the qualifying rounds last year.
Mayer has played ok earlier this season and has met an in form player each week. He will be motivated in his home country. No value at all at SP as we don’t know why he retired last week. Worth a lay for a trade as Robert can put in a good set at any time.
WTA Abierto Mexicano Open, 01:15 – Rybarikova v Hantuchova
They have never met. The 6 month stats favour Hantuchova.
Rybarikova has won 2 of her last 10. She has just one win this season.
Hantuchova didn’t end last season well but her form has improved throughout January and February. She won the title again in Pattaya.
Hantuchova to win but 1.44 offers no value at the start. 1.60 is a more realistic price.
