14:30 – Kvitova v Petkovic
Rankings are 54 and 52. They have never met.
Two middle ranking players who can occasionally hit a small run of form. Kvitova has recently beaten Safina at the US Open and Petkovic beat Kuznetsova at the Toray Pan Pacific.
The market has them fairly even and Kvitova is my favourite for this one, though there’s not much in it.
Use 15-40 and if Kvitova gets a lead let a back bet run to the end of the set.
Update: Kvitova won 6-1, 6-4
18:00 – Srebotnik v Suarez-Navarro
Srebotnik is unranked but is no mug. She could quite easily give her 30 ranked opponent a run for her money.
I would expect Suarez-Navarro to come through in the end.
Use 15-40 🙂
Update: My only trade of the day. The only games that Srebotnik won in the first set were breaks of her opponents serve. I was green by the end of that first set and I left it at that.
Suarez-Navarro won 6-2, 6-4
