Rogers Cup – Thur

Gonzalez v Davydenko

My game of the day!! Should be a great matchup. Davydenko is 4-0 up in the head to heads but Gonzalez is much improved since their last meeting, though his defeat to Del potro last week was poor in terms of fight and attitude.

Rankings are 10 and 8 and the market has Davydenko as slight fave at 1.74 .

If Gonzalez has sorted out whatever his problem was last week then this could be very close. Davydenko has been impressive recently, winning his last 11 matches and the last 2 tournaments.

Scalp at the start and if Davydenko gets ahead, allowing a back bet to run could be a sound strategy.

Davydenko to win in 2 tight sets or perhaps a 3 setter.

Update: Very tight as expected. Not the classic I hoped for though. Tough one to trade with very few break points. I was a little distracted during the match and only came out with a tiny profit.

Davydenko won 7-6, 7-5
