Istanbul Cup – Final

Dushevina v Hradecka

Rankings are 49 and 70 and the market has Dushevina as  strong favourite at 1.33 .

She should come through easily but showed a total lack of power  in her semi. She had opportunity after opportunity to put balls away but seemed happy to do little more than get the ball over the net. Hopefully her coach has given her a dressing down and she will be more aggressive today. If that is the case then this will be a straight sets victory. If not, Hradecka may nick a set. She has been taken to 3 sets in every round so far and may be more tired than the favourite.

The more experienced among you could back Dushevina from the start although her price could easily move out a little in the first set. You will need an effective strategy for if/when it goes against you.

Ideally, scalp at the start and when you see who is on top, allow a back bet to run on the favourite.

Update: Much better attitude from Dushevina. She was much more aggresive but her opponent was terrible and made it easy for her. Straight sets win 6-0, 6-1.
