I thought it might be useful to summarise how Monday’s list could have proved useful.
Obviously the system will indicate several favourites. Its a mechanical system that follows various rules and applies them to the day’s matches.
However it isn’t just a list of favourites. A quick look through Monday’s list gives us the following players who were either underdog or around evens:
Domingues Lino – Underdog. Won easily in 2 sets
Parra-Santonja – Underdog. Won sets 2 and 3.
Duque Marino – Underdog. Won set 2
Mayer – Just under evens when the list was processed. Won in 2 sets.
Tursunov – Underdog. Won sets 2 and 3.
Gonzalez – Underdog. Won set 2 (6-0).
Naturally if a strong favourite loses the first set most traders will look to back the pre match favourite. But not all favourites are strong favourites.
Today there were only 2 matches where the favourite was on the list and lost the opening set.
Torro Flor won the second set but then lost a tight 3rd set to Rus. (SP around 1.20)
Marchenko won the second set but lost the 3rd set 6-0 ( SP around 1.40 ).
There were 4 matches where the named played failed to win a set.
Soler Espinosa was 5-2 ahead in the opening set before she lost the next 10 games!
Zverev was a huge underdog against Bautista Agut. He lost 6-3, 6-2 ( an exceptionally low lay so little risk)
Rosol was slight favourite against Kamke but lost easily in 2 sets.
Witthoeft was around 2.70 at the start. Broke Begu’s serve 3 times in the opening set but just couldn’t hold her own! Lost 6-3, 6-3.
I hope this helps you understand why I find this list very useful during any trading session.
