Suez Grand Prix – Wed

Schnyder v Petkovic

Maybe one for the “back the favourite” strategy. Schnyder is top seed and beat Jankovic at Wimbledon. Only one winner here and you can back her at 1.32 . Wait until she breaks serve and then green up or if you’re feeling brave wait until she wins the first set.

Update: Schnyder won is straight sets but was less than impressive. She broke serve in the very first game so you could have greened up then. Like I said, the brave amongst you could have waited until she won the first set. As she was 3-5 down and receiving serve you could have been forgiven for being a little nervous but she came back to win in a tie break. In the second set she lost serve again but eventually got her act together to win 7-6, 6-3.

Koryttseva v Martic

The market has Martic as favourite at 1.83 even though she is ranked 47 places below her opponent. This is due to her being more comfortable on clay but I think this one will go to Koryttseva. Best trading strat is 15-40. Women’s clay court matches throw up so many breaks when the players aren’t highly ranked.

Update: Once again, the 15-40 Method wins over my gambling ability! Martic won in straight sets. Very easy victory.

Swedish Open – Wed

  1. Cirstea v Dulko

Cirstea is the 5th seed (29 world ranking) with Dulko at 45. Dulko won their 3 meetings and the market has her as favourite at 1.70 . Should be a close match as both women can  be shaky on serve.

Cirstea has reached 1 quarter final this year whereas Dulko has yet to set the tennis world alight this season.

Trading wise, lay Dulko at the start for a few ticks but 15-40 will be the better option. Should be several breaks of serve

Update: Well, Dulko didnt read the script for the first set. Cirstea, as expected, served poorly but Dulko managed an imressive first serve % of 80. That was the difference in that set. The rest of the match went as predicted with Dulko nicking it in a final set tie break. Plenty of breaks so 15-40 worked well. Laying Dulko would have given you a chance at profit but to be honest after the first set it would have been a brave trader who would still have been in the match when Cirstea levelled at 1 set all!
