13th October 2013 – Day 47

Just one early trade for today..

Samantha Stosur vs Eugenie Bouchard
Advice – Lay Stosur
There were four breaks of serve in the first set, three of which were on the Stosur serve, which would have been sufficient for the odds to drift enough for the exit point to be reached.

Just the one trade for the night owls..

Samantha Stosur vs Madison Keys

Tennis Trading League

11th October 2013 – Day 45

Eugenie Bouchard vs Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova
Advice – Back Bouchard
Bouchard lost her serve twice in the first set, which was lost 2:6. She also had three break points against her in winning the very first game of the match. I feel certain that the stop loss would have been brought into action here.

Madison Keys vs Jie Zheng
Advice – Back Keys
Zheng lost her serve in the opening game of the match. After this, Keys was never behind, so a straightforward win.

Samantha Stosur vs Misaki Doi
Advice – Back Stosur
Doi only won one game in the first set, but this didn’t happen until the sixth game. As Stosur was a very warm favourite before the match, another win without any cause for concern.

Juan Martin Del Potro vs Nicolas Almagro
Lay Del Potro at 1.48 (Achieved 1.46)

Tennis Trading League

10th October 2013 – Day 44

Today’s Early morning trades..

Madison Keys vs Shuai Zhang
Advice – Back Keys
Just the one break of serve in the first set – Zhang, with Keys winning the set 6:4, and going onto take the second 6:0, and a straightforward winning trade.

Kimiko Date-Krumm vs Misaki Doi
Advice – Back Date-Krumm
Doi was broken twice, in the very first game as well as the ninth, only to break Date-Krumm immediately afterwards. With Date-Krumm being the favourite, I would think that the exit point would have been reached with the second break if not the first.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Kei Nishikori
Back Tsonga at 1.62
Lay at 1.40
Stop Loss at 2.70

Just as a final comment on yesterday’s trades. Patrick advised a Back Heavy on the match between Fognini & Seppi vs Gong & Li. A Back Heavy match is advised as a stake of 30% of your bank.

I followed the match until Fognini and Seppi went a break up in the first set, at which point the odds dropped to where the exit point was. They lost the second set 0:6, but were never behind in the match after that break in the first set.

I looked at how much had been matched at or above 1.36 (the entry odds advised). A grand total of £25 had been matched at 1.36 or higher.

I advised that the trade was void, as the entry point had not been met, I checked the odds a few minutes after Patrick’s email arrived.

On Patrick’s results, he advised that the trade won easily. Quite true, IF you had got matched at the odds advised. I would be very interested to hear from anyone that did get matched at those odds.

Tennis Trading League

8th October 2013 – Day 42

Today’s early trades..

Ayumi Morita vs Luksika Kumkhun
Advice – Back Morita
Two breaks of serve in the first set, both by Morita, who lost the set 2:6. She never led the match, apart from the very first game, so the stop loss would have been deployed.

Madison Keys vs Anna Schmiedlova
Advice – Back Keys
Just one break of the Schmiedlova serve, with Keys winning the first set 6:3, a winning trade achieved.

Shuai Zhang vs Anabel Medina-Garrigues
Advice – Back Zhang
Zhang won the first set 6:0, a straightforward winning trade.

Tennis Trading League

7th October 2013 – Day 41

Today’s overnight trades:

Vania King vs Luksika Kumkhum
Advice – Back King
As this was a qualifying match for the main tournament in Osaka, there is no detailed information on Flash Scores. As King lost the match 3:6; 5:7, this trade was probably lost.

Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova vs Zarina Diyas
Advice Back Zahlavova-Strycova
Same issue here, but Zahlavova-Strycova won the match 6:3; 6:2. So I would think that this trade probably won.

Monica Puig vs Heather Watson
Advice – Back Puig
The first set was riddled with breaks of serve – five in total. Puig was never behind in the first set, so a winning trade to be has here.

Eugenie Bouchard vs Varvara Lepchenko
Advice – Back Bouchard
The Lepchenko serve was broken twice in the first six games, to be 1:5 down. No doubts behind a winning trade.

Janko Tipsarevic vs Marcel Granollers-Pujol
Back Tipsarevic at 1.53
Lay at 1.30

Tennis Trading League

6th October 2013 – Day 40

Just the three trades on the agenda for today, only the first one was too early in the day.

Juan Martin Del Potro vs Milos Raonic
Advice – Back Del Potro
A close first set, with no breaks of serve, break points only in the seventh game of the set, on the Del Potro serve. The game went to a tiebreak, Del Potro losing the first point, but breaking Raonic twice to take the set. Would have expected some movement in Del Potro’s price, but not enough I would have thought to invoke the stop loss.

Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal
Back Djokovic at 1.78
