TORMO TO BEAT BELLIS @ 5-2

Bellis 15-11 on clay courts compared to Tormo 105-62 win-loss records through their career. Bellis is certainly the better player but on clay it becomes a lot more even and Tormo will put huge pressure on Bellis's serve and her price is too big to ignore

OZAKI TO BEAT WANG @ 5-2

Both would probably say clay is not their ideal surface. Ozaki leads the head to head but that was on hard court. Wang has been in excellent form but with nearly identical records on this surface to be getting 5-2 is a huge price.

WTA MADRID

WTA MADRID

CIRSTEA TO BEAT MLADENOVIC @ 5-2

Both have been in excellent form, Cirstea clay form over 12 months 14 wins 6 losses and Mladenovic 14 wins 3 losses.  Cirstea has the all out attacking game to unsettle Mladenovic and at a generous price is my call.

CIRSTEA              69.2%                        44.8%
MLADENOVIC      66%                           37.9%

SEVASTOVA TO BEAT BERTENS @ 6-5

Similar to the above match both players have been in good form of late and this should be a cracker of a contest. Sevastova reached the QF at Stuttgart last week and so far this week she has yet to drop a set in her three victories. Bertens the same has yet to drop a set but I just feel this match up favours Sevastova as she is the more aggressive of the players

WTA MADRID: Bouchard to Beat Cornet


















WTA MADRID

BOUCHARD TO BEAT CORNET @ 11-8

                           SERVICE HOLD     SERVICE BREAK

BOUCHARD .     60.5%                        37.6%
CORNET            57.5% .                      39.6%

Head to head they are tied 2-2, with Cornet winning the only time they met on clay in 2013 winning in three tight sets. Neither has been in great form of late but I just fancy Bouchard greater weight of shot to cause Cornet a few more problems and providing she can keep the unforced errors down then she is a value bet to come through what should be a tight match.

GOLUBIC TO BEAT RISKE @ 6-4

                          SERVICE HOLD      SERVICE BREAK

GOLUBIC           62.3%                       46.3%
RISKE                62.4%                       39.2%

Golubic leads the head to head 1-0, winning on clay at the French Open in three sets although the sets were very one sided. Neither of them has been in any sort of form but looking at Riske's record on clay courts shows she struggles o the surface with a 12-month win-loss record of 5-5 and career 46-55 win-loss record, compared to Goluic's 12-5 and career 101-62.

ERRANI TO BEAT GAVRILOVA @ 7-4 (NAP)

Errani is such a strong player on clay, her serve is her weakness but on the slower surface, her opponents have less time to rush her and get on top of the points from the return of serve.

Did you know that Sara Errani became a professional tennis player in 2015. The Italian is ranked 21 in the world.

WTA Prague Open

Kamenskaya
Kamenskaya to bt Vekic @Evens 

Vekic is poor on clay with a career record of 11-22 compared to her opponents 81-39 record. Clay negates Vekics serve which is a huge weapon for her 

Maia to bt Alexandranova @ 6-4 

Maia has a 24-13 win-loss record over the last 12 months compared to her opponents 15-8. Alexandranova won both her last two tournaments on hard courts but has lost both her match on clay so far this season in straight sets.

Srmakova to bt Muhammad @ 10-11

Muhammad is not a natural in clay and I feel she will struggle now as she does not have the weight of shot to trouble opponents.
