DUBAI OPEN 2020: SASNOVICH TO WIN


MLADENOVIC V SASNOVICH OVER 22.5 GAMES @ 2.15 UniBet 

Sasnovich leads the head to head 4-2, both times they have met on hard courts, Sasnovich wins them both in three sets. In fact, the last 4 meetings have all gone three sets and no reason to expect anything different tomorrow. 

CIRSTEA TO BEAT KONTAVEIT @ 3.10 Betway 

Kontaveit leads the head to head 1-0 having won their only meeting back in 2016, Cirstea is a frustrating player who can play lights out tennis one set and then look like the lights have gone out the next set! But she has come through qualifying here beating Goerges and Navarro and looked in good form. Kontaveit is playing her first match since the Fed Cup and I expect her to be a little rusty.

DUBAI OPEN 2020: BLINKOVA TO WIN

DUBAI OPEN 2020: BLINKOVA TO WIN

SASNOVICH V BLINKOVA OVER 21.5 GAMES @ 2.050 Pinnacle 

Met once last season with Sasnovich coming through in three sets, very evenly matched Sasnovich has the greater variety to her game but I expect Blinkova to come through in either two tight sets or in three. 

PAVYLUCHENKOVA V BENCIC OVER 21.5 GAMES @ 1.93 Pinnacle 

Bencic leads the head to head 5-1 on hard courts it is 3-1 and this game spread has been covered in 4 of the 6 meetings. 

MERTENS V WANG OVER 21.5 GAMES @ 2.0 Pinnacle 

Wang leads the head to head 3-1 but more importantly, all the matches have gone to three sets, they are very equal in terms of rankings with just 8 places separating them and very similar styles in which neither has the power to hit the other off-court and I believe this all points to another three-set slog.

WTA ST PETERSBURG 2020 - POTAPOVA TO WIN


WTA ST PETERSBURG 2020

Potapova + 4.5 Games To Beat Bertens @ 21-20 VCBet 

Former junior world number one and Wimbledon junior champ Potapova has not made the huge strides that her rival Yastremska has on the full tour but she, without doubt, has a huge amount of talent and I think the bookmakers have underestimated her chances here. Yet to drop a set in her three matches here although Bertens is a step up in class of opponent she is still happier on clay and although victory might be beyond the youngster I do think she takes a set and potentially this handicap looks a little generous to me.

WTA PRO: HUA HIN 2020

HUA HIN 

Linette V Bondarenko Over 21.5 @ 2.120 Pinnacle

Linette leads the head to head 2-0 both on hard courts and both went to three sets 30 and 24 games in total, very evenly matched and no reason not to expect another tight encounter  

Rodionova V Hibino Over 21.5 Games @ 2.060 Pinncle 

Rodionova leads the head to head 4-1 all on hard courts, three of those matches have gone three sets including the two most recent and the two matches that went two sets featured 20 and 21 games so. Fairly close encounters.

Australian Open 2020: Thursday (30th January)

Halep V Muguruza Over 22.5 Games @ 2.10 Unibet 

Very evenly matched here and I expect this to go three sets with Muguruza’s clean ball striking a real weapon but Halep’s defence will keep this very tight. 

Barty V Kenin Over 22.5 Games @ 2.38 Betway 

Met 4 times last season and this spread was covered twice, I expect both players to be nervous as this is possibly Kenin’s biggest match of her career so far while Barty has the opportunity of reaching the grand slam final in her home country and I except a few nerves from both players with Barty coming through in three.

Australian Open 2020: Professional Trader Tips (Sunday)

Australian Open 2020: Professional Trader Tips (Sunday)

Kerber V Pavlyuchenkova Over 22.5 Games @ 2.23 UniBet 

Head to head is tied at 7-7 Pavlyuchenkova leads on outdoor hard courts 5-3 of these matches the games spread has been covered 5 times and with both players in good form, Pavlyuchenkova being more aggressive but Kerber has the defensive game to keep this very close. 

Muguruza V Bertens Over 22.5 Games @ 2.19 MarathonBet

Bertens leads the head to head 3-2 but on hard court it becomes Muguruza who leads 2-0, the last meeting went to three sets and the other meeting in Sydney was won by Muguruza in two tight sets totaling 22 games. I prefer Muguruza to win her but Bertens is likely to keep it close. 

Halep V Mertens Over 22.5 Games @ 2.25 Betway 

Halep leads the head to head 2-1 but the only time they have met on hard courts was last season and Mertens won in three sets. Both playing well here and I am expecting Halep to win over three sets.

Australia Open Thursday (23rd January)


Jabeur V Wozniacki Over 21.5 Games @ 2.17 MarathonBet 

Wozniacki leads the head to head winning in two tight sets that covered the game spread and I can see the same thing happening and she will want to bow out of her final tournament playing as well as she can 

Riske V Goerges Over 22.5 Games @ 2.09 MarathonBet 

Goerges leads the head to head 2-1 with the two most recent meeting last season going three sets and two tight sets. Goerges is very attack-minded and powerful, Riske is more of a counter attacker who defends excellently and this matchup looks like three sets to me.

Australian Open 2020 - Professional Tennis Trader Tips (23rd January)


Bellis V Muchova Over 22.5 Games @ 2.28 UniBet 

Bellis is back and fit on tour and should soon rise up the rankings, Muchova is a player who is rising well and playing some great tennis fishing off last season with a SF at Moscow and then reaching the SF at the Elite trophy. Very evenly matched I favour Bellis to come through but it will be tight and can see three sets. 

Muguruza V Tomljanovic Over 22.5 Games @ 2.20 MarathonBet 

Both players hit the ball very hard and flat and hit pliantly of winners, both have very good serves but both also lack consistency.

Australian Open 2020 Professional Tennis Trader Tips (21st January)

Pliskova V Watson Over 22.5 Games @ 2.0 BetFred, BoyleSports 

Head to head is tied 1-1, one match went to three sets and the other was over in straight sets. Pliskova has a great service but a very limited return game. 

Sabalenka V Suarez Navarro Over 19.5 Games @ 2.10 Betway 

Sabalenka leads the head to head 3-0 but two of those matches have gone to three sets, Sabalenka can overpower Navarro but she is wildly inconsistent in her matches and I expect her to win here but not before she has a wobble sometime during the match. 

Wozniacki V Yastremska Over 21.5 Games @ MarathonBet 

Yastremska leads the head to head 1-0 winning last year and she should have too much for Wozniacki (pictured) here but Wozniacki's great defense and determination should keep this very close and I expect three sets. 

Keys V Rus - To Feature A Tie Break In The Match @ 5.50 Bet365, PaddyPower

Both have excellent serves and not the best return games Hibino V Sakkari Over 20.5 Games @ 2.09 MarathonBet Very evenly matches contest, neither possess great power and this match could well become a real grind over three sets.

Australian Open 2020: Pro Tennis Trader Tips

Australian Open 2020: Pro Tennis Trader Tips

Zheng V Kalinskaya Over 21.5 Games @ 2.0 Betway

Hibino To Beat Peng 2.30 BetVictor 

Peng leads the head to head 2-0, Hibino been in good form lately. 

Sasnovich V Minnen Over 21.5 Games @ 2.0 Betway 

Met once last season and total games were 24 spread over 3 sets, again Sasnovich is the more talented but does not possess great power. 

Ferro V Van Uytvanck Over 21.5 Games @ 2.05 

Unibet Ferro leads the head to head 1-0 winning in two tight sets 22 games in total, neither player posses the huge powerful groundstrokes to blitz the other off the court. 

Golubic V Lin Zhu Over 22.5 Games @ 2.25 Unibet 

Met once last season Zhu winning in three sets total games 28 

Potapova To Beat Williams @ 12 PaddyPower 

Potapova is the former junior world number one and former Wimbledon junior champion, aligned very much with Yastramska who she defeated in the final there here rise her been slightly less well publicised but she is an outstanding talent and while it will be very difficult against Serena she is far too bigger a price at 12-1 considering Williams can sometimes be vulnerable early in tournaments. 

Stephens To Beat Zhang 2.40 BetVictor 

Stephens leads the head to head 3-2, on outdoor hard courts it becomes 2-1 Stephens, Stephens raises her games for Grand Slams and has openly admitted in the past this is what she concentrates on so I expect her to come through at generous odds. 

Mladenovic V Pliskova To Feature A Tie Break In The Match @ 3.9 Ladbrokes, Coral 

Head to head is tied at 2-2, Both players have good serves and not the best return games.
