The tennis hipsters here at news.bwin.com have been on a punting gold rush at the French Open, with James Middleton landing a perfect hat-trick of day six tips yesterday.
Readers who partook of the 87/100 about Maria Sharapova turning over Sam Stosur in straight sets, the 11/25 about a tie break in Gael Monfils v Pablo Cuevas or indeed the 19/10 Flavia Penneta win will doubtless be keen to stay tuned.
Here are the movers and shakers on day seven…
Simone Bolelli v David Ferrer – Under 28.5 games a 17/20 NAP
Unders look an absolute steal in this contest, with Ferrer yet to drop a set to Bolelli across a five-match career head-to-head, the most recent ending 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in Paris last year.
In fact the Italian has only taken the four games minimum needed in each and every set to down the bet in one of the seven he has played and lost against the 2013 finalist on clay.
Both the Spaniard’s first two outings at this year’s tournament have seen his opponents fail to win as many as a quartet of games in a single set either.
Marin Cilic v Leonardo Mayer – over 40.5 games @ 19/20 / Cilic 3-2 @ 21/4
The big Croatian has made serene progress to the third round, brushing off his first two foes without losing a set, but that could all change here.
Mayer has developed a habit of involving himself in long, drawn out battles at Roland Garros, with five of his six matches across the last three tournaments going the full five sets, including both this year.
The pair’s sole previous meeting came in Paris too, back in 2010, when, they went the distance in a Cilic win.
Madison Keys to beat Madison Bacsinszky @ 11/10
The American maybe the match-betting outsider due to her opponent’s more clay-savvy back catalogue, but her own form on the dirt has improved this term.
A seven-win/six loss 2013 was her only winning campaign of the last three completed seasons on the surface, but this year she’s nine/three at present, following a run all the way to the final of the Charleston.
Having bounced the world number 35 Belinda Bencic for the loss of just three games in the second round she’s capable of upsetting the odds against the Romanian.
