Terrific Tuesday at the Aussie "claycourt" Open

Well it better be considering the horrendous start I have had to the week. Looking at putting the following matches into a couple of parlay plays.
Any comments welcome


Fernando Verdasco over Kenneth Carlsen
Guillermo Coria over Victor Hanescu
Nikolay Davydenko over Ivo Karlovic
Lucie Safarova over Maria Sanchez Lorenzo
Michaela Krajicek over Kristina Brandi

Had I had a good start today I would also be backing Thierry Ascione against Max (I can't win a 1st round at the Aussie Open) Mirnyi at $3.80. But my confidence is shot so I won't.

Re: Terrific Tuesday at the Aussie "claycourt" Open

I am thinking along the lines of:

Phau over Berlocq
Seppi over Tipsarevic
Verdasco over Carlsen
Andreev over Almagro
Arthurs over Pashanski

I will be back later with my decisions...

Verdasco - I like the match - up. All Carlsen has is a good serve and average volley. Verdasco killed him the last time they played and should repeat the feat today - Carlsen is also injured (ankle). Little worried about Verdasco's result so far this season...but I was worried about Ginepri and he stormed through.

Coria - did well in Kooyong but Hanescu is dangerous. I was thinking of an upset here...but I won't be hitting the match whichever way I think it will go

Davydenko - had a few surprising losses. Karlovic is dangerous and despite being 0/2 I'm not totally convinced he will lose for a 3rd time. Davydenko will probably win but I think this is best left alone. I feel inclined to bet on a Karlovic match when it is on clay

Not sure and don't give a stuff about WTA

Re: Terrific Tuesday at the Aussie "claycourt" Open

Looking for Coria x Phau @1.66 to win 5 units

Looks pretty solid.

Coria leads Hanescu 2-0 ( both on clay ) He learned to play well on harcourt and he reached the 4th round in every GS last year, should be able to do so this year too!

Phau played decent tennis, they haven't met yet. I haven't seen Berlocq playing yet but I guess he likes to play on clay and had not really good results on hardcourt so far...

Good Luck!

Re: Terrific Tuesday at the Aussie "claycourt" Open

Kim is best on a faster court where he can get lots of cheap points off his serve. Levy will get a good look in today and Kim is not good in rallies. Add to that the good qualifying tournament Levy played...wouldn't say Kim is a good player to back tbh.

Re: Terrific Tuesday at the Aussie "claycourt" Open

Anyone know anything about Berlocq that isn't apparent from match results over the last 12 months?

Thanks

Re: Terrific Tuesday at the Aussie "claycourt" Open

Piece of trash Henman.......


Today we go with:


Peter Luczak -127 over Ivo Minar ($127 to win $100)

In 2003, local boy Luczak got a nice taste of this tournament when he made the 3rd Round before losing to Ancic. The last two years, he has lost to Santoro in 2004 and Tojo in 2005. The match against Tojo last year was out of this world as it went to 5 sets before Luczak got bagelled out of the tournament. I have read some articles and that loss still has Luczak begging for another shot at winning here. Luczak has played in 7 Grand Slam matches, while Minar is playing in his first ever AO and it more of a clay court player. Luczak is off to a good start this year, giving X-Man a run for his money in Adelaide and then beating him last week in Sydney before losing to eventual finalist Igor Andreev but that was only after taking Andreev to three tie breakers. Minar has not done much this year but the crowd support for Luczak will be big in this one and I don't see the Czech having any success. Neither player has done well on hardcourts but Luczak should win.



Juan Ignacio Chela +138 over Andy Murray ($200 to win $270)

There is probably going to be tons of money coming from the UK on this one and I will gladly take the other side and the more experienced Juan Ignacio. The onle thing I have learned about Murray is that he lacks self confidence and often finds himself wondering if he is doing things right. His goal prior to the Australian Open was to play three matches in Auckland. He failed to do that and his serve was off. Juan Ignacio Chela is not the same player he used to be but he is still a threat. He has made the 2nd Round or better in five straight Aussie Opens. The line for Murray seems to easy to take with Chela losing all his matches this year. However, I love the underdog.



Arnaud Clement -125 over Paul-Henri Mathieu ($250 to win $200)

This one again comes down to an experience level. In his last two Aussie Open first round matches, Clement has had to face Hewitt and Davydenko. Now he faces PHM which is a very different quality of opponent compared to those other two guys. Clement is off to a decent start this season and his last loss was in Sydney against winner James Blake. PHM on the other hand, crashed out of both tournaments so far this year and I once told myself I would never bet on him unless it was a carpet match.Clement is a good hardcourt players while PHM is not very good anywhere. This is the right time of the year to bet on Clement because he is not tired yet and should have some juice left for this one.
