Hopman Cup

Odds (Centrebet)

AUSTRALIA - $2.45
GERMANY - $1.55

ARTHURS - $2.60
KIEFER - $1.46

STOSUR - $2.35
GROENEFELD - $1.55

____________________________

I only like one play in this matchup, however will be playing it small as we don't know what these players have achieved over the past couple of months.

Kiefer over Arthurs @ $1.46 (Centrebet)

Kiefer easily the better player in this matchup against the aging Arthurs (34)

Good luck lads

Re: Hopman Cup - Session 2 (Aus vs Ger)

Champ - you don't rate ALG a better shot to take out Stosur?

Wayneo could be tricky with his serve .

I don't cap womens tennis, not my cup of tea. Having said that I remember Stosur playing some good tennis early last season in the Australian Open lead up events. I would never have taken her but she seems to be doing well against ALG at the moment, who apparently has only had 10 days of hitting prior to this match.

Arthurs played less than 40 singles matches last season and at 34 is no spring chicken. He will rely heavily on his serve and will need some luck to break Kiefer. As usual he won't engage in many long rallies and will try to move to the net when possible. This could end with three tiebreaks if Wayne is on, if not I see Kiefer getting this one relatively easily.

Re: Hopman Cup - Session 2 (Aus vs Ger)

Novak Djokovic +160

Dent is a one hit wonder.

Re: Hopman Cup - Session 2 (Aus vs Ger)

Djokovic is value at $2.65. I see the match at about 55-45 in Dents favour therefore value is with Novak. If the end of last season is anything to go by Djokovic will cause a few problems for alot of the big named players this year. He showed his talent at the '05 US Open where he accounted for Monfils and Ancic only to lose to Verdasco in 5 tight sets.

Not sure if I will pull the trigger or not but will let you know either way.

Good luck all

Re: Hopman Cup - Session 2 (Aus vs Ger)

I'm on Germany to win @5.20

Betandwin didn't change their odds when Safin pulled out. Now GER is @1.85 or 1.75.

Re: Hopman Cup - Session 2 (Aus vs Ger)

USA to beat S&M - $1.87

Dent to beat Djokovic - $1.65

Ivanovic should win her singles, Dent the mens singles - if that's the scenario, USA should piss this in as Raymond 's doubles prowess should carry the yanks home


good luck

No plays today

Value in Djokovic is gone as his odds came in from $2.65 to $2.20 overnight

Todays best bet would be Ivanovic to beat Raymond, but as a rule I don't touch womens tennis.

Good luck lads

tough to call.

going off results from the 2nd half of last year, one would most likely fancy Djokovic to outplay the error prone Dent.

but Dent seemed confident in his interview yesterday, and he will have the crowd's support - and I think he may be ready to put on a show.
