Re: Tennis Tipping #67 - Shanghai - The Masters Cup - Draws are out!

Thursday’s Commentary

We now know what the semi final line ups will be. In singles, Greatkingrat takes on Ketqtiadv, while Coreyschucky plays Aleskz. In doubles, Tytta/Virex take on GustavoM_Fan/Nadie and Bavaria100/Kindablue play Andre/Scarecrows.

But the day wasn’t as simple as this first seems, with play resuming after yesterday’s unscheduled wrestling match caused play to be abandoned for the day. And the 4 singles match finished rather quickly, with the 4 players who led overnight each going on to claim a straight sets victory and the 100 ranking points that it entailed. It also meant that Qczi and Tomek. failed in their comebacks, saying it was 1 step too far for them, and means that in the semi finals we have 3 of the top 4 players in the world, 2 of whom could still finish the year at number 1.

We also saw a shock of all shocks as Scythe19pro finally scored her first win in 6 attempts in round robin play when she defeated Aleskz, who confirmed that he tanked the match in order to prepare himself for the semi finals, and also because he felt sorry for the Romanian who would look as if she couldn’t cope with the pressure if she went winless for 2 years in a row. In fact, the only person who went winless was Linus, who also tanked her singles match to prepare for her sudden death doubles match later on in the day, leaving Greatkingrat with a 100% record and the strong favourite to win the title.

Doubles saw Bavaria100/Kindablue complete a 100% record as well when their opponents Savestheday91/Sheva undertook a strange tactic to throw the match in order to give themselves the best chance of winning in a 3 way tie situation, if it came down to that. Unfortunately, all their careful plans failed when GustavoM_Fan/Nadie came through against Ria/A_Skywalker, meaning that the doubles team who don’t communicate with each other have qualified for the semi finals.

Joining them are Tytta/Virex who lost to Alansk/Scythe19pro, giving them a good finish to what was bit an unlucky tournament for them, as they hit the most winners of any team, yet will finish bottom of the group, due to losing their nerve at crucial moments. Andre/Scarecrows completed the line up when they came through a nervy encounter in the evening match. All was looking good for them at one stage, but the home crowd roared on Linus/Labamba to get back into the match, and they were very close to forcing a 3rd set, but in the end they just didn’t take their chances and were sent home.

But then we had a massive shock, the organisers had decided that to entertain the fans they were going to trial a new concept for the ATP – the split day match. The players were told that they would play the opening set of their match, and then the next match would come on and they would finish off tomorrow. The idea being, the fans get to see their heroes play at least twice now, and so should boost attendances and profits for tennis.

This of course has totally ruined our method of prediction (post counts gave 5/8), and so we now have to advice you on matches that are 1 set old, which means that there may be some bias shown in what is predicted...

Court of Champions

Bavaria100 (GER)/Kindablue (CYP) vs. Andre (POR)/Scarecrows (ALB)


In the set that was played today, it was Andre/Scarecrows who won a tight first set on a tie break, and so go into day 2 of the match is a good position, especially when head cheerleader Nathaliia has returned to the courtside to cheer them on. But could the pressure of the situation get to them, especially as the winner of this match (Bavaria100 vs. Scarecrows) will end the year as the world number 1. They had a hard match on court earlier today while Bavaria100/Kindablue cruised through their match and have yet to lose as a pair, and so have all the confidence in the world behind them. Kindablue is going for a second TMC title in a row so knows that it is like to win here, and beat Andre in last years final, so has history on his side, but will it be enough

Prediction: Andre/Scarecrows to battle through in 3 close fought sets, recovering from a break down in the decider to steal the match, the number 1 spot and the girl

Tytta (BRA)/Virex (BRA) vs. GustavoM_Fan (ARG)/Nadie (RUS)


Surely the fact that GustavoM_Fan and Nadie don’t appear to ever communicate with each other will cost them at some point? But they got to the semi finals so far, and have beaten established pairings, so they have obviously got some ability to do what they are doing. But Tytta/Virex are a different kettle of fish, and the Brazilians, known for their luck took the first set today and are in a strong position. There could be overconfidence in the camp though, with their predicted rematch against Andre/Scarecrows in the final possibly coming true. GustavoM_Fan/Nadie have battled against the odds so far, so can they keep the run going?

Prediction: Tytta/Virex come through in a tight second set and make the final, giving a party on the beaches of Rio de Janerio

Aleskz (HUN) vs. Coreyschucky (USA)


Aleskz had an easy ride today with the non-effort in his first match, followed by what happened in the opening set of this match... Coreyschucky just didn’t show up at all, made some unfathomable errors and had a total disaster. Fortunately for him he gets the chance to recover and think about what he did, but it is still an uphill task for him. But that will take the pressure off of him, as everyone expects him to lose, so can come out and swing from the hip. Aleskz has known this pressure before, and has a great chance of finishing the year as well as it started, but must be weary of the American’s bouncebackability

Prediction: Aleskz to recover from the loss of the second set to cruise through the 3rd set to make the final

Greatkingrat (GBR) vs. Ketqtiadv (BRA)


The big match of the day, with the winner ending the year ranked as world number 1, putting the pressure on both men. Ketqtiadv is the only one of the semi finalists yet to win a Grand Slam, so that must count against him, while Greatkingrat has won 2, and so knows how to win these kind of matches. As so it showed today, taking the opening set after a long and arduous tiebreak, and proving himself to be the big match player. And this will work in his favour as it must mean that the notoriously safe play of Ketqtiadv may have to be abandoned for a reckless abandon from him, and when he has had to play that way this year he has invariably lost.

Prediction: Ketqtiadv though gets lucky, as he keeps it as tight as he can but springs out just enough to come from behind as Greatkingrat invokes the spirit of British sport and becomes the nearly man.
