Not a very inspiring schedule today with 1.26 the highest favourites starting price. Flashscores showed more games today when I checked it last night but half are now shown on Tuesday’s list.
Youzhny seems perhaps a little low at 1.26 against Stakhovsky and Stak is a previous winner of this event but he has been pretty bad recently so I expect the Russian to win it.
Update: Straight sets win for Youzhny 6-3, 7-6.
Anderson might be worth a back even at 1.26 against flaky Haider Maurer and I will watch the start of Simon’s match with Mannarino to see if he starts badly. Mannarino won their last match so you never know.
Update: Anderson needed a few attempts to break in the first set but he did and took the set. He won 6-4, 6-4.
Simon was broken early in the first set and we were able to back Simon between 1.40 and 1.43 in the chatroom. Simon broke back to 0 and didn’t allow mannarino another game in that set.
After that it was typical Simon and he lost the next 2 sets.
Mannarino won 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.
Other than that it lokos like being a quiet Monday.
