We have a lot of low prices around today. Let’s hope it’s a dog’s day.
ATP Rogers Cup, 16:00 – Murray v Kyrgios
This is Murray’s first match since the disappointment of his loss at the Wimbledon quarter final stage. He has enjoyed some success at this tournament in previous year and was champion in 2009 and 2010 but hasn’t done anything there since.
Kyrgios has been training with the big boys recently. he will be relying on his big serve to cause Murray some problems.
Murray is likely to be rusty and doesn’t like early starts. if his own serve takes a couple of games to get going he could find himself behind in the first set.
Murray starts at 1.30 which has to be too low. i will be laying from the start. The situation feels right for Murray to have a tough day at the office but it would be a real upset if the Aussie is able to get the “W”.
WTA Rogers Cup, 17:00 – Watson v Cibulkova
Both players needed 3 sets to get through their last match. For Watson it must have been a welcome win as her previous three matches had been lost in 3 sets.
They have played just once before which was at the start of the 2014 season in Brisbane. Cibulkova won in straight sets.
if Abanda was able to take Cibulkova to 3 sets there must be a chance of Watson doing the same. Watson’s game has improved since their last meeting.
Both players can lose concentration on serve and i think we will see a few breaks. Cibulkova starts at 1.40 but I will need a higher price before backing her. An early break for Watson would be perfect.
ATP Rogers Cup, 19:30 – Robredo v Simon.
Robredo looks a little short at 1.56 for this one. He does leads the head to heads 4-1 but all the matches were in 2006 and 2007.
Simon had a 3 set win over in form Thiem in the last round. However the 6-0 third set suggests that Thiem was struggling with Fatigue having played the final in Austria on Saturday.
Robredo had a straight sets win over Kohlschreiber in the first round. he has been having a very consistent.season which is reflected in his ranking of 20th.
Simon is more than capable of making a match of this one but I seriously doubt that he can maintain a high enough level to win the match.
as usual I would prefer a higher entry on Robredo. 1.75 to 1.80 would get my interest with part stake. I will enter the rest above evens.
