Looks like the mens tournament is well covered on bet365 with live pics 🙂
Cilic v Youzhny
Rankings are 15 and 65. Head to head is 2-0 to Youzhny. The market has Cilic a fairly strong favourite at 1.47 but I dont think he wil get it all his own way today. Neither player has had great results recently but they have both been unlucky in meeting top players most weeks in the opening rounds.
On his day, Youzhny is capable of winning this match and I would expect a few price swings along the way. Good match for 15-40 or scalping.
I would expect Cilic to scrape through.
Update: Great scalping match! Youzhny won 4-6, 7-6, 6-1
Wawrinka v Kiefer
Rankings are 22 and 110 and head to head is 2-1 in Kiefer’s favour.
On a hard court I would rate Wawrinka as the better player. Kiefer can be brilliant on his day but is also quite brittle under pressure.
Should be a few price swings here too. I think the match will be lost rather than won with the player controlling the nerves coming out on top.
Again, 15-40 or scalping is recommended. If Wawrinka gets on top you can let an open back bet run a little.
Update: A tight first set but Wawrinka came through 6-4, 6-1 .
