Milos Raonic vs Igor Sijsling
Pick: Igor Sijsling
Stake: 2'75/10 (11,192.97*0,1*0,275... 308 credits)
I think that these are a very bad considered odds, I am surprised to see them. Milos is a great player with great serve, a new superstar but bookies overvalue him too much. Since Raonic split up with his coach Galo Blanco he's playing poorly, he is not mentally in his good moment. His performance on the last matches he has played is very poor, and on grass he lost all his matches of preparation of Wimbledon against underdogs (despite the fact that Dodig is in a great shape). The fact is that Raonic movements on grass are not good, he is too tall for the low bounce and he doesn't feel confortable playing from the baseline. He keeps being a strong opponent because of his serve and the importance of the serve on grass, but Sijsling is a great server too so today they will be almost equal on this aspect. Sijsling is playing very well on grass, losing to Tsonga in Queens in a tight match and winning all the other grass matches without losing a set. He is undervalued in my opinion. In grass he has a good won/lost match record. I think that maybe it is fair to put Raonic as the favourite but the odds are close to be a joke.

"Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room. Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him: they are beaten even before they step on court. But that's why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me." Lleyton Hewitt about Rafael Nadal
