Shvedova ML -175
Haase ML +100

Funny line with this tampon matchup,,, jankovic actually ranked #2 in the event (what a joke),,, yet she's the dog,, the line basically tells you what to do,,,plus shvedova has been very solid this year with steady improvements to her game,,, auto fade jankovic every chance I get

Davydenko shouldn't ever be a favorite anymore vs guys near his ranking,,,plus with what happened to his serve last week, I can't think he will be able to improve his service by that much in just a few days turn around, maybe his shoulder really isn't 100%,,, plus Haase does tend to show up mentally to these Mickey mouse events where everyone else stays home

i was thinking the same thing.
i have been auto-fading jank-o-kunt for about 6months now.
also davydenko is playing like a high schooler.

I hate betting for Davydenko, never know when he'll throw it so Haase is looking good.

Obviously I don't follow women's tennis, but I don't get how an unranked player could be -175 over the #2 seed. Are they just saying Jankovic is completely expected to tank prior to the US Open?

shvedova is playing some good tennis lately. She is the only one who came so close to beating Serena at Wimbeldon.That is a nice play. I will play the spread there.

ranking does not mean anything in WTA.... shvedova is 100x better than Jankovic at the moment. Look at the recent results and player form.

The thing with tennis ranking is that its based on points and it takes considerable time for player to fall down because of the points system. Jankovic shouldn't even be in top 50 in her current form and results of last 10 months..

Many factors go into it, but Sammy hits on several key ones,,,jankovic's ranking is fraudent based on a horrible ranking system which saw Wozniacki #1 for quite some time without any true substance

Adding:

Muller ML -150,,,,, Stakhovsky had trouble against an indian nobody in qualies,,, I'm sure he's just happy earning yet another first round loser paycheck and enjoy the rest of the week off. 

This is the type of event Muller could be a legit sleeper to win it,,, all beatable bums

don't like that price.  stak plays to the level of his opponent.  50/50 match here, imo.  i'd lean stak.

Haase has been lost all season except for the title in Kitzbuhel. Davy was out of sorts last week and his shoulder issues are known. Is totally a situation where shadiness could come into play. Perfect spot for Davy to win....everyone knows his issues and his history...line has moved big towards Haase.

I think Haase first set is better angle...can't see Davy playing on or winning if he loses 1st set. good luck

Adding:

Bellucci +3.5 games (-115) live ingame when down 0-1,,,,already he's gotten to break points on baggy's first serve game so looks good for a sprinkle

JJ double faults serving for set point,,,god she gets so tight in crucial spots,,,it's almost "Safina-like",,,only thing missing is the tears
