The trouble with Davis cup is that the match ups can change at very short notice. That means there won’t be enough liquidity to trade them so I guess we’re left with the womens final this evening.
More Davis cup singles today but with the games starting in 1 and 2 hours there is hardly any money matched on Betfair.
If the money piles in at the last minute my picks to trade are:
12:00 – Cilic v Stepanek
Rankings are 15 and 17. Another clash of 2 strong servers. Both will be hoping to get the job done a little quicker than their last matches which were 5 setters with Stepanek winning his 16-14 in the 5th set after 4 tie break sets.
Head to heads are 1-1 but both matches were on clay. The bit of money that has been matched so far seems to favour Cilic but expect another close match dominated by serve.
Stepanek was very very solid on serve against Karlovic and I will start by backing him on his games. If Cilic’s service is working well too we can also look to back him on serve.
Make sure we have at least 50K matched before the game starts.
15:00 – Karlovic v Berdych
Rankings are 31 and 18. Head to heads are 2-1 to Karlovic and he has won their last 2 meetings. No money matched so far on this game.
Karlovic would be my strong favourite but Berdych won’t make it easy for him. I think Karlovic’s serve will be too big for Berdych on the evidence of his previous match. He served over 70 aces in that one!
Back Karlovic on his serves.
Again, make sure we have 50K matched before the game.
