Bianca wins Indian Wells…

We never know when our ‘ones to watch’ are going to come good. But we’re always on the hunt, and we’re always in the game…

In January, during the Australian Open, we backed an exciting 18-year-old called Bianca Vanessa Andreescu to beat higher-ranked opponent Anastasija Sevastova at match underdog odds of 15/8 (2.88). Andreescu fought hard but lost that match by two sets to one.

In February, at WTA Acapulco, we backed Andreescu at 9/1 in the Outright Winner market. Bianca got to the semi final, but a narrow two-sets-to-one loss denied us the Each Way payout and a shot at the final.

Then, this month, during the prestigious WTA Indian Wells event, we got on the young Canadian at 30/1 or 28/1. Andreescu went on to win the trophy – her first ever WTA title – coming through with brilliant, battling two-sets-to-one victories against Top 5 opponents in both the semi final and the final.

Last night’s final against Angelique Kerber was a cracker. A 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 win. Two hours and 20 minutes of entertainment, drama and tennis of the highest order. The deciding set was a classic: comebacks, an injury timeout, cramping on court, calls from the crowd, nerves, determination and spirit. And some inspired shot-making.

Trailing by a break of serve in the third & final set, at the change of ends Andreescu told her coach: “I want this SO bad!” Well done, Bianca. You got it.

I hope you were on that one and enjoyed the win. We’ve been close in a good few tournaments lately. It’s nice to get one in again, and at big odds, too.

Miami tomorrow…

We’ll be straight back into business tomorrow. The Miami Open – the second of the two prestigious WTA Premier Mandatory/ ATP Masters events that take place in March and are known as the ‘fifth Majors’ – starts on Tuesday afternoon. The women get underway first. The men follow on Wednesday.

Just like Indian Wells, Miami has produced some huge-price winners in recent years. The 2018 women’s final saw 50/1 Sloane Stephens beat 66/1 Jelena Ostapenko. A new venue and new courts should shake things up at the Miami Open 2019, too.

We’ll be looking for the outsiders and youngsters at attractive Each Way prices once again. I’ll email you tomorrow lunchtime with our first Miami picks.


I had an email from long-time member Steve last night. Steve was on Bianca Andreescu @ 20/1.

How did you do? I’d love to know. Email me here.

Enjoy the tennis…

Best wishes,
