Davis Cup, Group Stage: Argentina v Germany

Guido Pella 1.80, Philipp Kohlschreiber 2.12

Starting at 10am

Kohlschreiber won their only previous meeting. That was at the Olympics in Rio in 2016. He won on a hard court in 3 sets.

Pella has better overall results in 2019. Kohlschreiber has better long term indoor results. Pella has been a little better in 2019.

Pella only faced 1 break point in the last match against Nicolas Jarry. He reached the quarter finals indoors in Antwerp last month beating Gojowczyk and Soo Woo Kwon.

Kohlschreiber has had a poor season. He dropped down to Challenger level in September and reached a semi final and quarter final on clay. He has not been beyond a first round indoors in 2019.

Pella having played a match on these courts will help him. Germany are more likely to have the bigger support as its a shorter trip for their fans although expect the Argentina supporters to be very loud too. I think it will be tight and I give Pella the edge. Lay Kohlschreiber around 1.65 to 1.70 and remove the liability at 2.30. Lay the set 1 winner.

Update: We didn’t get the entry price in the first set as Pella was much stronger. The lay after set 1 worked out well as Kohlschreiber levelled the match with a single break of serve.
In the deciding set Kohlschreiber broken in the first game and held on to take the match.
Kohlschreiber won 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

TradeShark Diary – 19th November

It’s been over a week I think since I last posted. It was quite a busy week. As we get close the the end of another season I am covering the Challenger tour as well the last few main tour matches. The bloody Challengers often have 3 rounds before the quarter finals. Usually I have a couple of busy days and then the workload reduces from Wednesday. I never seemed to stop.

This week the new improved Davis Cup gives us plenty of matches with top players involved. The changes to the format have brought the organisers a few headaches. I say, “organisers” as you would think someone must be in charge but it hasn’t seemed that way. Just finding out who is playing and when has been a nightmare. I seem to have spent most of the last 2 days constantly checking various sources. The announcement of who is playing has been quite late as the captains’s only have to announce who is playing an hour before the match starts. They don’t seem to be sticking to that too well. It doesn’t leave a lot of time to research the matches ad get the info out to subscribers. …
