The Rollover – bet No.6...
At the start of April we kicked off our new Rollover bet. The aim is to roll a £10 stake over with match winner selections, cashing-out when we get to the £100 mark. I believe that’s an achievable target. We’re not reaching for the stars. And this new feature adds some extra excitement to our weekly tennis coverage.
After bet No.5 won on Saturday, the Rollover stake stands at £36.07. That goes on our next selection today, with the match scheduled for around 7pm at WTA Madrid…
Kvitova is the reigning champion in Madrid. After winning her first two matches in straight sets this week, and the Stuttgart title before that, the World No.2 is on a six-match winning streak on the clay. Petra’s career match win rate on clay is 72%, compared to 59% for Garcia.
The head-to-head is 4-3 to Kvitova, who won their last meeting 6-3, 6-3 in Miami in March. This evening’s match will be their first encounter on clay.
Kvitova is in superb form right now, No.1 on this year’s results alone. Garcia is dangerous on a good day, but she also wobbles far too much for my liking – and Petra is an intimidating opponent.
Kvitova is 2/5 with William Hill and Betway.
Six seeded players are out of the women’s Madrid draw, including big names like Caroline Wozniacki & Angelique Kerber (both through injury). As well as Elina Svitolina, Aryna Sabalenka & Julia Goerges (all 1st Round).
Our 16/1 pick Karolina Pliskova lost out in the 2nd Round, with the 5th seed losing by two sets to one v World No.85 Kateryna Kozlova.
However our 25/1 shot Sloane Stephens is still very much in contention. After a good win over resurgent former No.1 Victoria Azarenka on Monday, the American is the only seeded player left in her quarter of the draw, and is now 8/1 for the title. Stephens plays World No.49 Saisai Zheng this afternoon for a place in the quarter finals.
Enjoy the tennis…
