Suez Grand Prix – Wed

Schnyder v Petkovic

Maybe one for the “back the favourite” strategy. Schnyder is top seed and beat Jankovic at Wimbledon. Only one winner here and you can back her at 1.32 . Wait until she breaks serve and then green up or if you’re feeling brave wait until she wins the first set.

Update: Schnyder won is straight sets but was less than impressive. She broke serve in the very first game so you could have greened up then. Like I said, the brave amongst you could have waited until she won the first set. As she was 3-5 down and receiving serve you could have been forgiven for being a little nervous but she came back to win in a tie break. In the second set she lost serve again but eventually got her act together to win 7-6, 6-3.

Koryttseva v Martic

The market has Martic as favourite at 1.83 even though she is ranked 47 places below her opponent. This is due to her being more comfortable on clay but I think this one will go to Koryttseva. Best trading strat is 15-40. Women’s clay court matches throw up so many breaks when the players aren’t highly ranked.

Update: Once again, the 15-40 Method wins over my gambling ability! Martic won in straight sets. Very easy victory.
