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.

  • The Rollover advice will always be to bet with bookies that void match bets for uncompleted matches. That way we’ll never lose our stake/ rollover pot due to a match retirement. Find out more about bookies’ rules here

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

Rollover bet:

  • Petra Kvitova to beat Caroline Garcia @ 2/5 (1.40)

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.

Latest odds here

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…

Best wishes,
