I am going to bring out my bold/inspired/foolish/overconfident side and say Benneteau at 3.5 seems like a more than worthy shot..
I am probably going to keep an eye on it and wait for in-running, but I can't see the odds lengthening because I believe Benneteau will make a racing start.
Olao said recently on the board you should believe your eyes when you think Vaidisova has nice legs. No sorry I got that wrong. He said you should believe your eyes if you believe the momentum lies with a certain player from the 'last match' factor.
I agree to a certain extent although it can sometimes backfire obviously.
But with Benneteau I just feel he is playing so inspired at the moment he WILL make more inroads on the Ljubicic serve than expected.
Ljubicic has been utilising his serve well. He has had to. But I am reminded of Goran Ivanesivic at Wimbledon in 2001 (he made me £5k) and how inspired he was. And that comparison does not pop into my head because of Ljubicic, but due to Benneteau.
Alright, in truth we didn't get to really see how he'd cope if Martin had been fit and firing. But we did get to see how he beat a strong favourite in Stepanek. I saw that match and in truth it was a terrible showing from Stepanek, not at even close to the level of some of his recent ones, that's why it was so disappointing. But Benneteau has to take credit too. And the start against Martin (I'm talking about the first few games) was solid as a rock.
I think if he makes a good start, he could win in 4 sets. And I think 3-2 Ljubicic is a good cover bet.
