So close for Shelby…

Shelby Rogers had match point last night. You can’t get any closer to winning and not win.

Our 12/5 underdog pick was 5-1 up in the final set v former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

But Charleston native Rogers couldn’t get over the line for the big win, losing her serve three times in a row before finally going down in a deciding tiebreaker.

We’ll keep an eye on Shelby, as she continues to make her way back on tour after last year’s knee injury.

Smooth start for the Rollover…

Things went smoothly for our first ‘Rollover’ bet. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova won by the biggest score possible in tennis – beating Ivana Jorovic, 6-0, 6-0. That score-line is cheekily known as the double bagel.

Our £10 starting stake wins @ 1/3, meaning the Rollover kitty stands at £13.33.

If we can roll over that balance until the £100 mark, we’ll look to cash-out and then start again. But one step at a time. Bet No.2 will probably be Monday, when there are plenty of 1st Round matches to look at in next week’s tournaments. I’ll keep you posted.

16/1 Bencic into the Quarters…

Talking of bagels, Belinda Bencic has dished out a couple herself in this week…

1st Round: won 6-3, 6-0
2nd Round: won 6-0, 6-3
3rd Round: won 6-2, 7-5

Another straight-sets win today has taken our 16/1 Each Way pick into the WTA Charleston quarter finals.

Bencic was down to 6/1 at best this morning. She’ll be even shorter when the Outright Winner markets are reassessed this evening.

Last year’s runner-up and this week’s 7th seed Julia Goerges is already out. So is 4th seed Anastasija Sevastova. Those two were both in Bencic’s side of the draw.

And as I write, defending champion and 2nd seed Kiki Bertens has just been knocked out, too. Bertens was also in our half of the draw.

In tomorrow’s quarter final, world No.21 Bencic will play world No.53 Petra Martic.

We’ve got an in-form player going for us here, and the pre-tournament price of 16/1 for Bencic is already proving to be value. Let’s see if the likeable Swiss youngster can keep her run going this week.

I’ll be back on Sunday night with a first look at the Outright Winner prices for next week – and before if I have any further bet advice for you for this week’s tournaments in Charleston and Monterrey.

Enjoy the tennis…

Best wishes,

Oliver Upstone
