Our usual Monday morning review.
Richard Gasquet won his third Open De Sud final winning an all French final in straight sets.
Robert Battista Agur is in great form this year and won his second title defeating the KSTIPS Member bet Victor Troicki in the final. Clients could have covered their bet easily by laying back Troicki who we backed at 11/2 in the final. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO DO THIS -BUY THE LEARNTOBET.COM TENNIS course.
A frustrating week for our tennis service as our other tournament bet for the week in Quito, Thomas Bellucci lost in the final after being well on top in the match.Victor Estrella Burgos came back after losing the first set easily to win and record back to back wins in the tournament.
A momentous event on the Challenger Tour when two Brits met in the final for the first time in 10 years at Dallas. Kyle Edmund who is ascending the ladder quickly beat his more experienced compatriot Dan Evans 6-3 6-2.
British Tennis is the strongest now it has been since the 1950's.
Looking forward, there are three tournaments this week.
Rotterdam is the senior tournament and Gasquet is number 1 seed with Battista Agur also featuring in the draw. It is rare for players to record back to back tournament wins and i would rather be a layer than a player. Gael Monfils and Benoit Paire would be my speculative suggestions.
Buenos Aires, one of my favourite cities hosts their annual tournament which sees the return of Rafa. The betting sees him even money favourite and 7/1 bar-again i would rather be a layer than a player as he is not the invincible clay player he used to be.
Finally - off to the good old USA where Memphis is the host of the third tournament of the week. Here i do recommend backing the even money favourite Kei Nishikoro who seems to have a straight forward task.
