Cincy Thursday

Maybe some Monfils, Safin and Horna, undecided as of yet.

Vaidisova is a banker at the ladies.

Re: Cincy Thursday

Hmm don't know about Horna as Acasuso has a 3 - 0 HTH Lead could be a bit risky and none of my bookies have prices up yet. Also Safin would be extremely risky as I have seen his first 2 matches and he has made a lot of mistakes from the baseline. Hrbaty has a 4 - 3 HTH on hardcourts over Safin and if Hrbaty gets him into lots of baseline rallies Safin could implode. Monfils I think is a pretty safe bet as he seems to be a confidence player in his young career. The tournament win a week or so back has filled him with confidence and he could have crushed Beck yesterday 6 - 1 6-2 but he let Beck back into the 2nd set before seeing him off. Also Youzhny has had 2 tough 3 setters so it would not surprise to see the fresher Monfils breeze through in straight sets.

Re: Cincy Thursday

Hrbaty is in good form.

Back him again in straight sets over Safina.

Monfils is producing the goods and look for him to continue his run.

Davydenko maybe

here is the head to head to which you refer, but note that those meetings were all on clay, the most recent of which was 2 years ago. I think Horna has a better hardcourt game than chucho.

Re: Cincy Thursday

The question with Safin, is whether he cares about winning enough - or is the mind set on the US Open.

Yes you are right about the HTH. Just saying that I'd be a bit wary of backing Horna despite his recent good hardcourt form as I have not seen a price and Acasuso had a good win over Robredo who has a pretty good hardcourt record. If Horna was anything under $1.80 I'd definitely say no bet.

Re: Cincy Thursday

Ancic v Hewitt - The value here is definitely with Ancic @ 4.20 - especially if you plan on trading inplay. He won comfortably yesterday, while Hewitt hasn't been his normal self of late.

Davydenko v Gonzalez - In my mind, this is one to avoid. I think the result will be fairly clear cut, one way or the other, it all depends on which one of these headcases cares about this tournament more. I would rate this pretty close to a 50/50 contest, so the value is with Gonzalez.

Federer v Rochus - Roger 2 matches in, coming from behind to beat Kiefer, can't see the Belgian flea troubling him.

Monfils v Youzhny - Another fairly even matchup in which I'm giving the nod to the frenchman. He appears to be coming of age somewhat - with his maiden title, and now stringing 2 straight sets masters wins together. Youzhny has the game and experience to beat Monfils, but his two 3rd set tiebreak efforts suggest that he may not be playing his best tennis at the moment.

Safin v Hrbaty - see above.

Horna v Acasuso - likewise.

Roddick v Chela - Chela took a set off Roddick in Washington a few weeks ago, and is coming off a solid win over Henman. Roddick on the other hand struggled against JCF, and was knocked out in Montreal by PHM - suggesting that he too may have Flushing Meadows already on his mind. Chela definitely worth a shout at 6.40 - especially for any traders.

Moya v Ginepri - can't find any books with this match up yet. Ginepri wasn't troubled at all by Ferrer yesterday, while Moya did struggle somewhat against Simon. That said, I'm not going to back Ginepri against Moya.

Too true.

Also the more matches he gets under his belt the closer he gets too suddenly striking his irrestible top form. I just think Hrbaty has an outstanding chance if Safin plays to the same level as he did against Hernych & Murray. If Murray shoulder had not being playing up today he quite possibly would have beaten Safin.

Robredo has bean out of sorts for a while now - don't read into his form too much.

Re: Cincy Thursday

If it's warm then Hrbaty will win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
