From the doubles action : Dulko/Penneta over Safina Vesnina @1.60
A bargain at these nice odds, I mean Vesnina is like non-existing in womens doubles, and Safina is far from consistency on clay, unlike Dulko who had very solid results on clay, actually winning last clay tournament pairing with Penneta.
This really should have been more like 1.30
Oh and let's not forget the 'dogs' - Medina-Garrigues/Dominguez-Lino, over Huber/Mirza @2.05
The Spanish pair got to the SF on Charleston clay courts last year, beating good opponents along the way, this is (for me) enough reason for backing them against Mirza, who is not really a doubles player. Huber's results came only when having quality partners and not on clay. Sure, Mirza/Huber won a tournament, but it was in India , and let's not forget - a 160K tournament.
Some risk here but the odds are just too tempting.
I went with Mirza today but pumped it with the the grizz in the nba ml to get 1.93.
Mirzas record on the dirt hasnt been that bad, she only had 2 tournies last year on clay and drew dulko in one which is a tough match up on the dirt and in the other got a player who made the round of round of 16 and had put together a very good clay season last year.
Raymond doesnt have anything from the back that can hurt mirza and if she tries to come in on the dirt she'll be passed all day long. Raymonds game doesn't translate well to the dirt.
