TradeShark Diary, 30th June 2020

So Leicester have had lockdown rules tightened. No one is allowed in or out. Good luck with that. Their pubs and hairdressers etc will not reopen for at least an extra 2 weeks after other areas. Good luck with that too. Leicester residents are bound to travel a few miles if they are desperate to visit a pub. Just how bad have Leicester folk been during lockdown? The locals in Worcester have been pretty bad although perhaps my perception is flawed due to being surrounded by the muppets. Someone who lives round the corner was telling me how quiet their lockdown had been.

I have suspected all along that the local pub was serving drinks. We have been told that they never actually closed! There have been lock-ins every night. Surely they would not have had enough stock to serve customers for over 3 months. Again, just how bad have they been in Leicester??

Alexander Zverev was one of the players at the Adria Exhibition where several people tested positive for Covid-19. He vowed to self isolate for 14 days Yet just a few days later he was filmed at a party at the Anjuna Private Club. He tried to delete the evidence from his Instagram account but Ben Rothenberg tweeted the video.

I traded a couple of tennis matches today from the Tipsport Elite Trophy in the Czech Republic. My first trades for a couple of weeks. First up was Alexandrova v Kr Pliskova. Alexandrova started as slight favourite but doesn’t have a great record on clay against main tour players. Pliskova had beaten her earlier this month, also on clay. I had a part lay on Alexandrova near the start of the match and Pliskova took the set 6-0 which was nice! I hedged at 4-0. In the second set I laid Pliskova when she took the first break of serve. Alexandrova took the set. Pliskova took the match with the match tie break 3rd set.

I missed the start of the Kvitova v Vondrousova match. Vondrousova hasn’t had great results this year after wrist surgery. She took the first break of serve which is when I first looked at the match. I couldn’t find a live stream. Backed Kvitova at 1.81 and 1.91. She broke back for 3-3. She held for 4-3 and was 0-40 on Vondrousova’s next service game. I hedged which proved to be a good move as Vondrousova held serve and then broke the Kvitova serve and went on to take the set. Kvitova must have been injured as her serve fell apart and she didn’t hold once in set two.

Stay safe.
