Tsurenko leads the head to head 4-0 and despite al her her injury woes throughout her careers she is having a good season, she hits the ball flat and hard and will cause Alexandranova a lot of problems here as New York is not somewhere where she excels at LAY ALEXANDRANOVA
Tuesday 29 August 2023
Both these two are former Junior GS champions, Tauson has struggled with injuries and her fitness over the last season or so and Potapova has eventually started to fulfil some of her early promise but still shows signs of being slightly unpredictable. Tauson if she can stay fit then she can cause Potapova some problems here with her heavy hitting and three sets or at least two tight sets looks likely to me LAY POTAPOVA.
Monday 28 August 2023
Sinaikova leads the head to head 1-0 winning their only encounter in three sets, Sinakova recent form has been horrendous losing in the first round in all her last four matches so far this season winning just one set and she looks seriously low on confidence. Kalinskaya has not played since retiring in Rome so it is possible she may start slow but she has the power to be able to hit through SInakova who is too short a price considering her fragile confidence and poor recent form LAY SINIAKOVA
Cirstea 1.33 V Day 4.20
Day is more at home on clay but still has a respectable 13-8 win loss record on hard corts this season and 123-91 through her career but she does seem to struggle to bridge the gap between the tours, Cirstea has been as unpredictable as ever as can be a real error machine if her all out attacking game is a little off and I suspect Day will be able to cause her some problems here and Cirstea I expect to trade higher as 1.30 for someone so unpredictable is a silly price LAY CIRSTEA
Sunday 23 July 2023
Korpatsch 1.66 V Carle 2.30
Head to head is tied 1-1 with both matches being on clay, Carle is very happy on clay as shown by her career win loss record 156-80 and this season 21-11 albeit on the ITF circuit where she has won Bastad 25k Bodrum 60k then reached the SF at Open International Femeni Solgirones where she defeated todays opponent. Korpatsch has a good 245-124 win loss career record on clay but has struggled this season with a poor 8-8 record on her favoured surface and reaching just the one SF at Valencia and she may just struggle to contain Carle here LAY KORPATSCH...
TREVISAN 1.34 V Kalieva 3.50
Trevisan normally plays well on clay but has struggled this season similar to Korpatsch with her win loss record this season 4-6 only reaching one QF. Kalieva has been having a great season so far on the ITF circuit especially on clay with a 29-14 win loss record reaching 6 Semi Finals this season including 2 finals all on clay so an inform opponent on the ITF circuit against an out of form opponent playing on the Main tour, I expect Trevisan to struggle today against a confident in form opponent LAY TREVISAN
Saturday 15 July 2023
NAVARRO 1.71 V DANILOVIC 2.32
Both players have been excellent this week and both have good records on clay with Danilovic this season having a 16-4 win loss record and Navarro, Danilovic has a 7-4 win loss record in finals with all 7 wins coming on clay, Navarro has a 5-5 record with all 5 of her titles also coming on clay. This has the makings of a tight match here with Navarro serving well this week but Chrico showed yesterday that she can be put under pressure and I find it hard to call a winner here but expect Navarro to trade higher than her current price LAY NAVARRO
VONDROUSOVA 3.0 V JABEUR 1.50
Head to head is tie 3-3 Jabeur winning in straight sets the only time they have played on grass but the head to head stats are very close with it being 3-3 7 sets a piece and 65-65 in games won with 3 matches going 3 sets, their respective records in finals reads Vond 9-7 Jabeur 16-12. Jabeur has had the tugher route to the final beating two times winner Kvitova as well as last years winner Rybakina and Sabalenka in her last three matches as she looks to make up for losing last years final. It is always difficult to predict Grand Salm finals as no one is ever sure of how players will react, certainly Jabeur has the advantage with reaching the final last season and I feel she might just have the advantage here but Vondrousova being a left handed player and with lots of variation can certainly keep this close if the occasion does not get to her like it did in the French Open final where she won just 4 games LAY JABEUR
Wednesday 12 July 2023
CHIRICO 3.20 V LIU 1.37
Chirico was a player with huge potential a few years back before injury, illness took an effect but she has shown in flashes that she still retains the ability and against a soli but limited payer in Liu if Chirico hits form then she will prove too strong she has a 16-12 win loss record this season and a career record of 138 -83 on her favoured surface and while the days of her breakout 2016 season of 55-25 are probably behind her it des show that she has the ability so far compared to Liu who has a 4-6 record this season ad has struggled despite her career 87-41 record. LAY LIU
PARRY 1.62 V FERRO 2.32
Ferro leads the head to head 2-0 winning in straight sets both times on clay and has a cracking 28-9 win loss on the dirt this season winning the title in Biarritz a couple of weeks ago LAY PARRY
Monday 3 July 2023
Frech has been in excellent form so far this season reaching the quarter finals at both Nottingham and Birmingham showing a 6-3 win loss record on grass this season and her career record is 36-21. Jabeur has a good record at Wimbledon reaching the final last season but his season has struggled on grass losing first round in Berlin and second round in Eastbourne and I expect her to trade a lot higher than her current price LAY JABEUR.
Sunday 2 July 2023
Bencic 1.46 V Swan 3.10
Bencic has not played since the French Open and I expect her to start slowly although her win loss record on grass is an impressive 60-28 but against Swan who reached the final at Surbiton although her record is not great on grass I expect Bencic to trade higher than her current price LAY BENCIC.
Burrage 3.0 V Mcnally 1.48
Head to head is 1-1 but interestingly Burrage won their one meeting on grass at Wimbledon juniors and has had a good season on the grass so far reaching the final at Nottingham before losing to Gauff in the second round at Eastbourne, Mcnally has stuggled this season on grass only winning two matches and while she should win she is likely to trade higher LAY MCNALLY.
Azarenka 1.28 V Yuan 4.50
Yuan reached the QF at Gaiba on grass before coming through qualies here and beating the highly regarded Brenda Fruhvirtova in the three sets, Azarenka has so far this season struggled on grass losing in the second round at Hertogenbosch and then first round at Berlin in straight sets LAY AZARENKA.
Gauff 1.29 V Kenin 4.5
Head to head is 1-1, Kenin has a 24-12 win loss on grass compared to Gauff 24-8 both players are fairly happy on the surface and in what should be a fairly close contest then Gauff is likely to trade at least 1.50 LAY GAUFF.
Bouzkova 1.30 V Waltert 4.2 Bouzkova has a 16-17 win loss record on grass and struggles on this surface, Waltert has a 11-7 win loss record and is far more comfortable on the surface LAY BUZKOVA.
Potapova 1.40 V Naef 3.20
Potapova is a good player on grass but can be a little emotional and erratic during her matches, Naef is is in good form having reached the Quarters at Hertogenbosch and can keep this tight here LAY POTAPOVA.
Tuesday 13 June 2023
Sonmez 6.2 V Andreescu 1.20
Sonmez has an excellent 38-14 win loss record this season so far and 5-1 on grass having come through qualifying here as well as reaching the second round at Surbiton. Andreescu suffered a poor French Open losing in the third round winning just two matches against Tsurenko, she does have a decent 21-13 record on grass but I am expecting a sow start from her against an inform opponent
Linette 1.36 V Gadecki 3.70
Linette can struggle on the grass with a 26-31 win loss record and her record recently has been poor not getting past the third round in any of her clay tournaments. Gadecki has been making progress this season with a 32-16 win loss record and has won her two qualifying matches here
Monday 12 June 2023
KUDERMETOVA 1.26 V RISKE 4.70
Both players have a positive record on grass but even more so Riske who would put it down as her favourite surface as shown by her 85-40 win loss record compared to Kudermetova 18-13, Riske leads the head to head 2-1 winning both the most recent meetings both on grass. Kudermetova has more power and certainly the better serve but Riske is most certainly the better player on grass and I expect quite a close contest here as Riske has already played one match on this surface losing a close contest to Golubic although my confidence is tempered slightly by Riske losing her last 7 matches but am hoping the return to her favourite surface will keep this close
Tuesday 30 May 2023
RUS 1.60 V GRABHER 2.66
Both players happy on clay, Rus has been playing great tennis lately and does lead the head to head 3-0 but I just suspect that Grabher might push her on the slow courts here.
BUREL 2.90 V SORRIBES TORMO 1.50
Both players are very happy on clay with Burel reaching the SF at Strasbourg and Tormo dropping down to the ITF Circuit and reaching the final at Madrid in their last tournaments so both players come here in decent form.
Thursday 11 May 2023
LINETTE 1.88 V NOSKOVA 2.10
Linette has struggled on clay sofar this season with a 2-4 win loss record, Noskova is very much at home on clay with a career record of 41-22 Lay Linette 1.65.
POTAPOVA 1.64 V COCCIARETTO 2.52
Cocciaretto has a 7-1 win loss record on clay so far this season winning Potosi on the ITF circuit and also playing well in Mdrid losing in three sets to Badosa and coming through in straight sets in her first match here against Davis losing just 3 games. Potapova reached the SF at Stuttgart but is very unreliable and I am happy to lay at a price I feel is too short against an in form and confident player on clay Lay Potapova 1.60.
KALININA 1.58 V BLINKOVA2.66
Blinkova leads the head to head 5-1 including 2-0 on clay,both players are happy on clay but Kalinina has struggled so far this season losing both her matches on the dirt, Blinkova hs a 4-4 record on clay and I suspect this match will go three sets like the other two meetings on clay and picking a winner is difficult but I expect Kalinina to trade higher so Lay Kalinina 1.55.
Thursday 4 May 2023
Tuesday 2 May 2023
SHERIF 11.0 V SABALENKA 1.09
Sherif has won a total of 14 titles during her career with 11 of them coming on clay albeit most on the ITF circuit, Sabelnka meanwhile has 18 titles with jut one on clay this tournament backin 2021. Sherif has a 7-2 win loss record on clay this season and a career record of 151-50 with the last 2 seasons showing an impressive 33-8 record and has been impressive here with wins over Mertens, Garcia and Kalinia along with Girogi retiring at 1-1. Sabelnka has a 6-1 win loss record on clay this season and lost in Stuttgart in the final but her career record of 60-41 is less impressive along with a 15-6 record over the last 2 seasons. The slower surface negates some of her power and the longer rallies can show up her consistency weakness. Although she is likely to come through her price at sub 1.10 to start is nothing short of crazy LAY SABALENKA and look to green up in play.
SAKKARI 1.80 V BEGU 2.20
Two of their three meetings have gone 3 sets and I expect similar today with Begu showing a decent level of form recently and if she can continue to play to that levl then she can push a slightly erractic Sakkari here although it is tough to call a winner the overs looks the best play OVER 22.5 GAMES EVENS
