13:00 – Gicquel v Llodra
Rankings are 63 and 107. They have never met.
There’s a new market on betfair tennis. “Retirement yes/no” (well there should be)
Picking a winner is almost impossible at anything like decent odds. Gicquel would normally be my favourite and I would suggest backing him on serve.
However in light of recent retirements and collapses I am recommending using the scalping method for this match. Gicquel is 1.85 on Betfair and a break of serve in his favour in the first set would cause a price drop of at least 40 ticks.
Try to be green by the end of the first set to avoid getting caught out by a retirement.
Update: I was wise to advise caution. Very tight match with Llodra winning 7-6, 6-4
