BEST BACK OF THE DAY: Maddison Inglis vs Hailey Baptiste | BACK (WIN) – Maddison Inglis (1.5 units recorded at $2.16)


It was a nervous start for De Minaur in the first round, with Musetti redlining late in the first. From there it was one way traffic, with the Australian looking very strong. I like him to wear down Majchrzak here in similar fashion, with an overrating of the Pole’s first round win over Seppi who was well below his best. Advantage De Minaur in the hot conditions.

Betting Strategy

BACK: De Minaur -5.5 games (3.5 units recorded at $1.80)

Nick might be one of a handful of players that is capable of getting under the skin of the Russian one way or another (either engaging with the crowd, or underarm serves impacting his concentration). He leads the head to head, however I’d be shocked if he could pull off an upset (I would love it for the outright market though). Prefer the total overs here.

Betting Strategy

BACK: Total Games Over 36.5 (1 unit recorded at $1.92)

The Aussie will have gained a lot of confidence from her win over Fernandez, transitioning into a more favourable match-up for her today against Baptiste. Her ability to limit errors and extend points will be crucial here. Baptiste was fortunate that Garcia dropped her level late in R1, and shouldn’t be a favourite for mine.

BACK: Inglis to win (1.5 units recorded at $2.16)

Begu was incredibly lucky to make her way through to round 2 thanks to Oceane Dodin’s inability to finish off a set, *5-4 40/15 lead. Begu’s level has regressed of late, and Mertens looked very solid in her round 1 win over Zvonareva. Like the 2-0 set betting here, as well as -4.5 games.

Betting Strategy

BACK: Mertens 2-0 set betting (1 unit recorded at $1.94)
