Istanbul Cup – Semi Final

Bacsinszky v Dushevina

Rankings are 85 and 49 and prices are 2.54 and 1.61 .

Dushevina has looked the more impressive this week. She had a very easy quarter final with Madine-Garrigues forgot how to play tennis. I think she will win this match in 2 sets.

For Bacsinszky to have a chance she will need to break serve very early but Dushevina has been pretty solid on her own serve.

Options for trading? Back Dushevina from the start and green up after either the first break of serve or after the first set. Make sure you have your plan of what to do if this goes against you. There’s a video demo on

Alternatively, 15-40 and scalping will bring a profit.

Update: Dushevina won 6-2, 6-4. Her almost total lack of power to finish a point off made the second set much closer than it should have been. She was content to simply wait for her opponent to make mistakes. Some nice price swings for both 15-40 users and scalpers and obviously, the Back the Favourite users will have a nice green figure. 🙂
