Andreev v Odesnik

Rankings are 28 and 91 with Andreev the market fave at 1.68

Playing on a hard court you would imagine that Andreev’s big serve would make him a tough one to beat.

Odesnik did well last week and reached the quarter finals but I think today’s opponent will be too strong.

Options for trading? Back Andreev from the start and green up after a break or at the end of the first set. Don’t forget you need your strategy in place for if it goes against you.

Wait for the break before backing. Serve will be a massive part of this match and Andreev wont be broken often if at all. This should be a safe option although his price will be around 1.30 after a first set break.

Safer still will be 15-40 or scalping but in this one be wary of backing Odesnik at 40-15 against the Andreev serve.

For me, Andreev in 2 sets.

Update: Time and time again I demonstrate what a crap gambler i would be!

A shaky start by both men with the first 3 games being breaks of serve. Andreev won the first set easily 6-2. I greened up and went to bed. Checked the score just now and he lost the next 2 sets 5-7, 4-6 . What a muppet.
