I was quite impressed with Garcia Lopez last week even though he didn’t beat Youzhny. His form comes and goes but when he plays well he plays VERY well.
Another sporadic player is Tomic who has so far been unable to fulfill the hype that surrounded him after a couple of decent tournaments. Surprisingly Tomic starts as favourite today at 1.74 which doesn’t make much sense. The prices are the wrong way round and whilst I expect this could be close I have to favour GGL.
Its not the best price to lay so I will put part stake on GGL at the start and lay Tomic further if his price drops in the early exchanges. I have seen little from Tomic in recent matches to make me want to have money on him.
Safarova should be too consistent for Zakopalova. Zak came through a long rain delayed match yesterday to beat a tired Hsieh.
Zak leads the head to heads but Safarova is serving well and won’t be easy to break.
I’ll try to get the blog picks done the evening before as I just dont seem to have the time once the trading session is under way.
