- Cirstea v Dulko
Cirstea is the 5th seed (29 world ranking) with Dulko at 45. Dulko won their 3 meetings and the market has her as favourite at 1.70 . Should be a close match as both women can be shaky on serve.
Cirstea has reached 1 quarter final this year whereas Dulko has yet to set the tennis world alight this season.
Trading wise, lay Dulko at the start for a few ticks but 15-40 will be the better option. Should be several breaks of serve
Update: Well, Dulko didnt read the script for the first set. Cirstea, as expected, served poorly but Dulko managed an imressive first serve % of 80. That was the difference in that set. The rest of the match went as predicted with Dulko nicking it in a final set tie break. Plenty of breaks so 15-40 worked well. Laying Dulko would have given you a chance at profit but to be honest after the first set it would have been a brave trader who would still have been in the match when Cirstea levelled at 1 set all!
