More WTA unfortunately, will see if anything is worth having a punt on.

I think Raymond is worth a shot @2.25.
Mirza's record on clay is far from impressive

Agree, taking her at $2.66 on Betfair.

Also boxing her in a multi with Stosur and Vesnina

raymond's record on dirt is worse, if we take the last 2 years

but sania's game is definitely not suited to dirt, her footwork at the best of times is poor, and she doesn't have the patience to construct points on the surface so early in her career.

Didn't Raymond beat Razzano last year on clay?

Anyway, I think it will be quite close so worth a shot

My play today; a mix of NBA and Tennis parlay:

Detriot ML x Cha/Min over 194 (teased) x Benneatu to beat Vemic (exhibition)

@2.31


Feeling strong about this play with Benneatu being the weak link, though he should kill Vemic even on clay.. hmm

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.

Picking a winner from the Mirza-raymond match is a case of picking a an apple from a bad bunch - no clear reason to take either IMO, so no bet for me

gl with those who have a crack though

Best gambling day for me for a while, helped by very very generous odds on Vesnina and Raymond

clearly overestimated mirza. Dirt or not she should've disposed of a civ like raymond. If I ever get around to making a black list remind me to put mirza on it

Hard to back irratic players like Mirza as the favorite, they can hang with the best, but lose to anyone by beating themselves with inconsistency.
