19:00 – Starace v Luczak
Rankings are 64 and 73. Head to heads are 3-0 to Starace.
Starace is fairly solid on serve. Luczac, on his day can give Starace a game so I recommend watching how the opening games go before deciding on a course of action.
Each set will probably only contain one break of serve so trade it with care. Scalping is a good option here as you will not be exposed to the market for long periods.
If Starace looks to be comfortable on serve, back him when he’s serving.
Should be Starace in 2 sets.
Update: Well it was 2 sets! Quite a tight match. The first set went to a tie break and Luczak won it quite easily (7-3).
In the second set it was again very close and just 1 break seperated them.
Luczak won 7-6, 6-4.
I had initially backed Starace as he looked the most likely to break in the first set. During the tie break when Luczak went 2 mini breaks up I switched sides.
Evo cancels the screen way too fast so I didnt get a proper screenshot but I greened up for £71. This shows the beauty of trading. You don’t have to be able to pick the winner to get a profit from the match ( although it obviously makes it a lot easier!)
