TOP RATED ATP NEWPORT *BOOKIE BREAKER*
Dudi Sela ranked 156th in the world against Ivo Karlovic ranked 110th.
Karlovic 7-0 in head-to-head meetings.
Sela is 1-1 on grass this season. Karlovic's record is 2-3.
Karlovic has won all but one of the previous meetings in straight sets and he beat tough grass-player Alex De Minaur as a small underdog in round 1. Sela defeated Bernard Tomic 2-1 as a +300 underdog yesterday. Impressive, but it also puts him in a let down spot here against a big server who won't give up any breaks. Also consider a play on Over 23.5 games.
10* play on Ivo Karlovic -1.5 sets.
(This pick will be graded on the moneyline)
|07-17-18||D Istomin +110 v. M Ymer||Top||0-2||Loss||-100||25 h 56 m||Show|
ATP BASTAD ROUND 1 *BOOKIE BREAKER*
Swedish Mikael Ymer may have home advantage here at Bastad, but I still think the wrong player is favored in this matchup.
Denis Istomin is ranked 91st in the world and a veteran on the tour at 31 years of age. He'll be well rested after getting knocked out from Wimbledon by Nick Kyrgios almost two weeks ago.
Ymer meanwhile is just 19 years old, ranked 337 in the world and lost in straight sets in the semi-final of the Bastad Challenger on July 13.
Istomin is 0-7 on clay this year while Ymer owns a 10-9 record, but I think Istomin's routine will be the deciding factor. Ymer posses a lot of talent, but Istomin is still the better player as of now IMO.
10* play on Denis Istomin

Top Rated 10* WIMBLEDON *BOOKIE BASHER*
Berdych is really good on grass and he was in the semi-finals here at Wimbledon last year. Berdych's power will too much for thiem to handle.
|03-18-17||Jack Sock v. Roger Federer -1.5||Top||0-2||Win||105||3 h 20 m||Show|
Top Rated 10* ATP Indian Wells *GAME OF THE YEAR*
Federer is 2-0 in head-to-head meetings and he has the rest advantage as his opponent in the last round pulled out due to an illness while Sock had to play three tough set against Nishikori. In total, Federer has played three hours of tennis in this tournament while Sock has played nearly nine. This will be an easy FedEx win.
|08-10-16||G Monfils -135 v. Marin Cilic||Top||2-1||Win||100||29 h 54 m||Show|
Top Rated Tennis *GAME OF THE MONTH*
Gael Monfils is having a great year on hardcourt with a 21-4 record. He's improved his play as well as dealt with his mental issues during matches under his new coach. Marin Cilic is coming into this game well overrated, and I expect to see a comfortable win for Monfils.
|04-01-16||Nick Kyrgios v. Kei Nishikori -137||Top||0-2||Win||100||18 h 33 m||Show|
I lost with Milos Raonic against Nick Kyrgios yesterday, but I'm looking to get that money back and then some with a big bet on Kei Nishikori Friday night.
Kyrgios was somewhat lucky that he caught Raonic on a bad day yesterday as Kyrgios himself had six double faults in the match. He won't get away with a similar performance here and Nishikori is a very good returner of the serve.
This will mark the second meeting between the two players, with Nishikori winning the previous last year in Shanghai by 1–6 6–4 6–4. Nishikori is even better this year and I really like his chacnes to advance to the final here in Miami with a win tonight.
|10-21-15||PH MATHIEU v. F FOGNINI -170||Top||1-2||Win||100||19 h 20 m||Show|
Sometimes you just gotta lay the lumber and this is one of those situations. Fabio Fognini is 9-3 on hard court since the U.S Open and has played some terrific tennis highlighted by a win against Rafael Nadal. Paul-Henri Mathieu meanwhile has been battling injuries lately and has been rather inconsistent. He's not defeated a single player ranked within the top 30 this season and I don't see him beating the 22nd ranked Italian Fognini here.
|10-20-15||K DE SCHEPPER v. J ISNER OVER 20.5||Top||12-14||Win||180||3 h 6 m||Show|
Two excellent servers will clash when John Isner will take on Kevin De Schepper in Vienna. Neither player is a good returner though and breaks will come at a premium in this matchup. We're likely to see at least one tiebreak, probably more.
|02-13-15||Tomas Berdych -1.5 v. Gael Monfils||Top||12-5||Win||100||4 h 39 m||Show|
Tomas Berdych is 3-1 over four career meetings, winning both meetings on hardcourt and is a perfect 4-0 indoors for the year. He defeated Andreas Seppi over three sets yesterday after sweeping set 1. I expect a more clinical approach from the Czech today as he knows Monfils raises his game if he smells blood and captures a set.
Gael Monfils defeated Roberto Bautista-Agul over two tough sets yesterday. He's a real temper player who can beat anyone on his day, but more often than not he loses his cool when things don't goes his way from the get go. Berdych has a better serve and more power in his shots which is a huge advantage on today's surface.
