A very promising start to 2018...

The new season started well for us last week, with two of the youngsters on our Ones to Watch in 2018 list reaching the final in their very first tournaments of 2018...

Katerina Siniakova – highlighted as One to Watch in the WTA Shenzhen event at 22/1 or 20/1 Each Way – made the final in China for the second year running.

The 21-year-old Czech finished runner-up, eventually beaten 2-1 in the final by World No.1 and pre-tournament favourite Simona Halep. No shame in that.

And it might have been a different story had Sunday’s final been played outdoors on the show court as intended. As it was, rain delays meant the match had to be played indoors in a muted setting with a modest crowd and little-to-no atmosphere.

Siniakova’s run to the final proved profitable, with an 11/1 or 10/1 payout if you backed her Each Way.

  • After 7/111/1 and 25/1 Ones to Watch winners in the last three weeks of the 2017 season, getting 22/1 Siniakova into the final in the very first week of 2018 continued our strong run into the New Year

Elsewhere, on the Men’s tour one of our Ones to Watch in 2018, Andrey Rublev started his season well with a run to the ATP Doha final at odds of 16/1.

I said in our 2018 report that there should be more final appearances to come from the 20-year-old Russian this year – and Rublev has started delivering straight away. View our full Ones to Watch in 2018 list here.

Price Watch – two 50/1 finalists last week...

Carrying on the theme from the last two seasons, last week’s events saw half of all finalists at pre-tournament odds in double figures. Including two 50/1 runners-up, along with 22/1 Siniakova and 16/1 Rublev.

Here’s last week’s full list of tournament winners, runners-up and prices:
