Australian Open 1st Round Discussion (Men/Women)

Its very important to snap up early prices in grand slams as they will without doubt shorten with the big big punters staking the 50k bets.

Thus far i like.

Nishikori over Melzer @ $1.90-Nishikori can back up the us open exploits, conditions should suit him more too
Belluci over Lu @ $2.38- I like Belluci
Bolleli over Vliegen @ $1.75- much steadier player
PHM over Nemo @ $2.10- BIG value here as books have over-estimated nemo current form
Tomic over starace $4.00- this is the big risk of the tournament
Almagro over massu $1.50
Grannollers over Gabashvilli $1.75

Tough calls i can see

Malisse vs Llodra
Delic vs Dent
Rainer vs sela
Calleri vs ggl
Lopez vs muller
Baggy vs Benny
Ljubo ve Kunitysin
clement vs stakhovsky
Haas vs Scwank- anyone know about tommys health?
Hewitt vs Gonzalez

In the womens i like

Voskoboeva over szvay @ $2.80- big fall from grace by agnes in the last year

Paszek over Dokic @ $1.90- Dokic isnt ready
Suarez navvaro over Vinci @ $2.00
Razzano over Gajdasova @ $1.95
Chan over Hshei @ $2.10- much better player
Morita over Malek @ $1.83- really good form in the last few months
