ZIDANSEK (2.96) V MARTIC (1.49)
Zidansek is a real threat on clay and this is a huge price to back her at, Martic is also good on clay but there is no way she should be half the price of Zidansek. Martic reached the SF at Charleston on the green clay but this is very different here. Zidansek 154-40 win-loss record on clay as she blitzed the tournaments not eh ITF circuit last season and is a great price here. I am laying Martic at her current price and will lay again if she hits 1.20 during the first set.
KUZMOVA (2.0) V SINIAKOVA (1.91)
Looks a coin toss of a match but the simple fact is Kuzmova is in better form that Siniakova who has only won three of her last ten matches and looks very short on confidence. Similar to the other matches I want above 2.0+ before backing Kuzmova here.
GATTO MONTICONE (1.87) V MINNEN (1.91)
Both players have in good form on the ITF circuit, I Monticone leads the head to head 1-0 having won the final they contested last season in two tight sets, clay is the preferred surface of both and I can see this going to three sets. I favour Minnen for the win but want a bigger price before I back her so will be looking at 2.40+ in play
FRIEDSAM (1.90) V SMITKOVA(1.90)
Friedsam came through yesterday as expected although I did take her three sets. Smitkova career win-loss on clay courts is 93-76 and it would not be classed as her greatest surface. Friedsam is very much at ease on clay and this will be a close match but I just favour Friedsam to come through and will be looking to back her at 2.20+ in play.
