Andreev v Mayer
Rankings are 30 and 65. They haven’t met before. Andreev is currently 1.59 on Befair.
Andreev is showing solid stats on serve with 81% of service games won. His first serve percentage is a little low ( compared to the top guys) at 62% but he wins 72% of points on first serve. Mayer doesn’t appear in the tables that i use!
Neither player has lost a set all week but Mayer has had the easier route to this round.
Back Andreev on his service games and watch out for 15-40 opportunities in his favour.
Andreev in 2 straight sets
Update: Not straight sets and Mayer managed to hold on to the second set in a tie break but Andreev moves through with a 6-4, 6-7, 6-3 victory. That increased the opportunities for backing the Andreev serves 😉
Kuznetsova v Mauresmo
Rankings are 6 and 18. Head to head is 4-4. Kuznetsova has won their last 4 meetings but only one of those was in the last 18 months.
Kuznetsova is currently 1.68 on Betfair. Mauresmo hasn’t lost a set so far whereas Kuznetsova has been to 3 sets in both rounds.
This could be a close one and i think there will be the swings that we need for a profit 🙂
15-40 or scalping is the way to trade it. Am leaning slightly in favour of Mauresmo but wouldn’t want to pick a winner from the start.
Update: 3 setter with Mauresmo winning 7-6, 2-6, 6-3. Soe nice price swings if you were able to get on 🙂
