WTA Premier Sydney
WTA International Hobart
ATP 250 Auckland, Sydney

Was going to place some more mug outright bets, but no-one appealed when looking at the draws, the players I'd favour all have tough draws and aren't that big a price.

Awful weather in Sydney this week. The week before a slam. Normally a recipe ripe for tanking and mugging about.
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 1:49 AM GMT
Next year is going to be like pure garbage pre-AO with like all ATP tournaments bar 1 gone and replaced with ATP Cup.
Report wisewords January 7, 2019 2:27 AM GMT
but WTA tournaments will stay the same as usual?
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 2:28 AM GMT
Sydney I don't think is actually confirmed (Brisbane is) but I assume they will yes.
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 2:29 AM GMT
The ATP event will suck anyway as all top players have to be at ATP Cup I think. And ATP Cup is a crap idea, as it's not on best teams, it's on your highest ranked player.
Report wisewords January 7, 2019 2:29 AM GMT
Hopman Cup will get the chop too I assume?
Report wisewords January 7, 2019 2:30 AM GMT
what about Auckland and Shenzen?
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 2:36 AM GMT
Will be fine.

Hopman Cup is like almost certainly finished.

who's running ATP Cup? is this the rival idea to Pique's thing?
Report wisewords January 7, 2019 2:37 AM GMT
or is ATP Cup Pique's thing?
Report tinyelf54 January 7, 2019 2:44 AM GMT
are wta replacing the current warm up tournies with ''the transgender cup''? or maybe ''the ATP B cup'' ? god knows that would be the truth
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 2:52 AM GMT
The ATP are running the ATP Cup, it's their rival event to the ITF's Pique Cup thing (which sounds like it's going to flop huge btw so sounds like ATP might win).
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 2:53 AM GMT
What ATP are doing sucks imo. Having your "big team" competition week 1 of year is weird in itself.

I don't see how it's ever seen as a big team competition when you put it week 1 a few weeks before AO, the top guys are just there to get match practice for AO.
Report n88uk January 7, 2019 2:54 AM GMT
Like can you really see the likes of Murray and co. being desperate to win this like they were Davis Cup, players will have their eyes on AO.

Agree. Seems a bad idea to schedule it then

I'm looking for a bit of outsider value beyond the usual Nishi, Dimi, Anderson tips.
So far I have my eye on little Diego who could be dangerous and a nice trade if gets a favourable draw.

great to see 2 shorter guys facing off on the atp tour ... schwartzman vs nishioka both 1.7cm the same as me and their tennis and movement is more fluent and nicer to watchCool
Report tinyelf54 January 10, 2019 4:46 AM GMT
this is a much more interesting match to watch between these 2 shorter guys than you would usually get on the atp tour its more about the rallies and outmaneuvering your opponent rather than boring serving contests between between the bigger, slower, awkward guys. schwartzman and nishioka have both given each other a beating in seperate sets. its a like a street fight, fascinating viewing
Report Platini January 10, 2019 10:36 AM GMT
Diego too crafty for him in the end, and on to the semis. I expect him to beat Seppi and be in the final.

Very happy with my 740 on Schwartzman for the Oz outright. Nice draw he has too.

Hoovered up 1.58 on RBA to beat one hip Murray in 1st round. Insane price, should be no bigger than 1/3. Cool
