Timo´s 2014 picks

Season 2014 is just round the corner...

Saturday 28.12.2013:
  • WTA Hopman Cup: Bouchard E. - Stosur S. @1.49 (5Dimes) (line 1.35)
ATP Abu Dhabi Exhibition: Nadal R. - Tsonga J-W. @1.46 (Pinnacle) (line 1.33)

Tennis 10.10

10.10.2013 Tennis:

ATP Shanghai: Del Potro J.M. - Haas T. @1.50 10/10
ATP Shanghai: Nishikori K. - Tsonga J-W. @1.60 8/10
ATP Shanghai:Monfils G. - Federer R. -1.5 sets @2.12 8/10
WTA Tokyo: Mladenovic K. - Zheng J. @1.62 Sportingbet 9/10

Del Potro leads 5-0 in mutual matches and Haas has never get even a set!  Haas is only a shadow from past and Del Potro should take an easy win over 35 years old German.
Nishikori has amazingly beaten Tsonga three times, but now I think it´s time to "The Muhammed Ali of Tennis" take a revenge!
Fed-Ex is not the player he used to be,but he is obligated to take an easy win over unstable French Fakir!
Mladeovic is better on indoors and Zheng is more than capable to beat her in this a little bit slower surface in Tokyo!

Roland Garros Men´s semis

Nadal -147 (@1.68 EU)
Nadal is the King of the Clay! Many experts have regarded him as the greatest clay courter in history. Rafa has won the title here 7 times. He has suffered from many injuries and was asideover 6 months last season due to knee injury. This season 36-2 loosing to Zeballos on the opening tournament in Vina del Mar on February and to Djokovic in Monte Carlo about seven weeks ago. Since Monte Nadal has won three titles on red clay and has lost only 3 sets in 15 matches. Here he has struggle a little bit, but has taken three straight wins in a row and been very solid.Djokovic is also one of the most talent players in history. Nole has won only  8 titles on red clay and last year was his first final here. This season only 13-2 on red clay loosing to Dimitrov and Berdych. Here he has lost only a set to Kohlschreiber on the 4th round.
2H2 is 15-19 to Rafa, but the Spaniard leads 12-3 on red clay and won three mutual matches in a row before Monte. Rafa is more versatile player and has more weapons on red clay.He should take this, but maybe just after 4-5 sets battle!
Ferrer -143 (@1.70 EU)
Ferrer is one the best clay courters. David has won 10 ATP titles on red clay and this is his third time in a row in semis. This season 21-5 on red clay loosing to Wawrinka and twice to Nadal. Here Ferru has been very impressive without loosing a set.Tsonga is very powerfull player with very strong serve. "The Muhammed Ali of Tennis" has taken 10 ATP titles, but... [More]

Tennis picks week 42 15-21.10

Last week 8/12.
ATP Stockholm
My favourite tournee where I have been in grandstand many times in past!I hope I can get very profitable picks during this week from my Swedish friends!
Baker - Youzhny 2-0 -125 (@1.80 EU odds)

Baker is very inexeperienced in ATP level while Youzhny is one of the most experienced players! Misha is not anymore the player he used to be, but still he is obligated to beat players like Baker in straight sets.
Kamke - Nieminen 2-0 +110 (@2.10 EU odds)
Kamke has played a few good matches on indoor surfaces lately and did took a set from Nieminen here last year! But this is Jarkko´s favourite (almost a home) tournee and I´m sure he will come to this open match very determined after Asian losses. The Finn is more versatile player and on this tournee he should take this without any big troubles!
WTA Luxemburg:

Minella- Barthel 2-0 -137 (@1.73 EU odds)

Barthel is much better and experienced player. Weak Minella played very poorly in Asia during last weeks and lost players like Soler-Espioniosa and Giorgi! Besides she has suffered from back injury.Straight win to the German!
GL!... [More]

Tennis picks week 41 8-14.10

I hope this week will be better than last...

ATP Shanghai

Parlay: Dolgopolov - Gasquet +114 (@2.04 EU odds)

Haas - Almagro -104 (@1.96 EU odds)

Some guys also here are backing Haas. I have disagree! Although Nico has bad record in Asian courts he is nowadays better player than oldie German.Has has three losses in a row and I saw him playing against Misha last week in Beijing and he was awful! This will be a close battle, perhaps three setter, but in the end I saw Almagro to be a winner!

WTA Linz Quallies:
Castano - Tsurenko -200 (@1.50 EU odds)

Maybe a just a liitle bit shorty odds, but anyway he Russian is a HUGE favourite on this surface!

Saturday tasty parlay !

Today one strong parlay:

Monfils + Tsonga -117 (@1.85 EU odds).

GL you all!

Posted Friday, September 21, 2012 05:02 AM

My picks

ATP Metz 
Monfils -149 (@1.67) 

Monfils (#44) comes from injury break but was very solid on the 1st round against Rochus (6-3,6-2). 
Yesterday Gael beat his country-fellow Mahut like I speculated!
Gael is very sporty and fast player and his movement is almost acrobatic! He is a very good indoor surfaces player and has even won three ATP titles on indoor hard! He was a champion here in 2009 and also won Montpellier ATP title in 2010 in his home courts. Gael was even ranking #7 on July 2011, but has suffered from many injuries especially on the last season. 

Kohli (#18) is a decent all-surface playr whose has taken titles on all outdoor surfaces! This season the was the champion in Munchen´s clay on April. The German has played well season with record 38-20. The German was on QFinals in Wimbledon and on the 4th round in US open.  He came from three weeks break and beat local Paire 2-1 having a lot of toubles and up and downs during the match!

2H2 is 6-1 to Monfils and three wins just on indoor hard and wins on three different surfaces. 
In front of the home audience Monfils should beat unstable Kohli!
The odds are a little bit short, but anyway I see some value!

Thursday picks

ATP St.Petersburg

Berankis -121

ATP Metz

Monfils - 3 games -112

Mahut has been down in a while and has lost four in a row before coming here. Besides he has a bad records against his country fellows! Nicolas is also already 30 years old and not the player he used to be!
Monfils comes from inujury break, but won easily Rochus on the 1st round. 2H2 is 2-0 to Gael who has more weapons and is much more faster than Mahut!

Kohlschreiber -154

Bet of the day! Paire is a mug! Against the player like Kohly he has no changes! Besides Paire has succeeded only on red clay!

Posted Tuesday, September 18, 2012 03:04 AM

Tuesday bets

LU @1.77 

Lu (#64) is a decent hard courter.He has won 17 challenger titles and all on hard surfaces. But he has also showed some good performance also on ATP level like beating e.g. Tipsarevic and Karlovic. He did won the challenger title in Shanghai a few week ago without loosing a set (although the draw was quite easy).
Bautista-Agut (#87) is an average Spanish all-surface player. He has mainly played on challenger level and only a few matches on ATP tournaments. He also took the title on Pozoblanco (ESP) challengers a few month ago, but comes now from clay.IMO Lu is more versatile player and has more weapons on this indoor hard surface!My estimation is ~62 - 38 %.
PS. Bets to void-rule bookie, because Lu has had some fresh injury!

Malisse @1.75

This is the battle between two French! Malisse (#58) is a very experienced 32 years old who has even take three ATP titles years ago. Nowadays he is not the player he used to be, but still going strong now and then. He played very well on grass (9-3) beating players like Simon and Verdasco. Now he comes from the beyond the Pond with three losses under his belt.Paire (#51) is 10 years younger and has mainly succeeded on red clay. Actually this year is his first season on ATP level. Before US Open he lost four in a row and won one match in Open.
Paire has not played in three weeks. Besides Malisse who has been here before has a big advantage on this fast indoor sur... [More]

Berdych - Murray in Dubai 1.3.2012

Berdych has been hot during this season (16-2 ATP). Here he has taken two easy wins over Becker and Lacko. 
Muzza was aside almost 6 weeks after AUS Open semis. The Scott started here loosing a set to poor Berrer and beat Chiudinelli 6-3,6-4 with any special performance.
2H2 is 3-1 to the Czech.
Muzza has never succeeded here while Berdych was forced to retire against Nole in the semis because of flu.
So Berdych knows how to beat Muzza and is motivated to defend points!
IMO Berdych ~@2.50 has enough value!
