Miami 2013 – week 1, Sunday

I don’t have a lot of time today so just some brief thoughts on tonight’s matches.

Haas looks like decent value at 1.84 against Dolgoplov. Dolgopolov obviously has the talent to win this match and in fact he won their previous meeting which was just under a year ago. He also has the ability to not show up mentally whereas Haas is much mor reliable.

Update: haas won 6-3, 6-2.

 

Anderson really shouldn’t be at 1.66 against a top 10 player. That is unless that top 10 player is Tipsarevic. Whatever Tipsarevic’s problems re at the moment h is nowhere near the top of his game. I’ll take 1.80 on Anderson. 

Update: I only watched the first set so don’t know what happened in the third.

Tipsarevic won 4-6, 7-6, 6-0.

 

Cirstea is in a decent run of form and  feel she can give Kerber a few problems. Kerber starts at 1.30 which looks too low. They have played just once before which Kerber won in 3 sets. I’ll wait for 1.70 or better.

Update: Cirstea won 6-4, 6-0.

 

Vinci starts as favourite against Suarez Navarro. The Spaniard leads their head to heads 3-0. She won a hard fought victory in the last round against Hampton and has been in good form for several weeks.

I think 3 sets are a real possibility and will favour Suarez Navarro.

Update: So close! Vinci won 5-7, 6-4, 6-4.

  1. Always hard to know with Cirstea, it could be close or Kerber could win in straight forward fashion.

    Carla is a chance.

    Think Davis v Cornet has the potential to go 3.

    I think Kirilenko is a bit short. I think she will hit at least 1.50 inplay, so am looking to lay 1.30 and under. This could be closer than the odds suggest.

  2. Dolgopolov is interesting – seemingly blessed with boundless talent but fragile. Reading up there is a lot of talk of health / fitness issues as well as an inordinate amount of innuendo as to his integrity shall we say. The way he crushed Davydenko earlier in the tournament showed how he can play, although Davydenko is not necessarily the most reliable yardstick.
