Guimaraes v Braga

Guimaraes were 1-0 up after about 60 mins when I got on. I decided to green up with 15 mins to go.
£3.68 on all outcomes.

Francesca Schiavone v Melanie Oudin

These two have played each other only once before with Schiavone winning 6-1 6-1 at Indian Wells in 2008. However don't read too much in to that as Oudin was only 16!

Schiavone seems to be in the form of her life at the moment. She reached the final in Osaka and then followed that up with only her second career title in Moscow last week. She did have a right leg injury before that but it obviously healed up nicely.

Melanie Oudin had a great run at the US Open this year and prior to that I had heard little about her as has only just turned 18. When looking up her stats I was expecting to see a US hardcourt specialist so was fairly shocked to see two Clay court Challenger titles in the spring. Then I realised they wer both in the States so, in my humble opinion, may as well be ignored!

More appropriate is the fact she followed those up with a 6-0 6-1 loss at the French to Zuzana Ondraskova!!!

She is also reported to have had gastrointestinal illness recently.

I was initially cautious with this but 1.30 is a very nice price for Schiavone here thank you!

Flavia Pennetta v Alexa Glatch

Here it is the Final of the Federations Cup is upon us so Christmas is definitely fast approaching!

I'm afraid I have no inspired pick here for you. Flavia Pennetta should win comfortably and as such I'm on from the start. I was tempted to go for 2-0 but Fed Cup can throw anything at you so I didn't want the risk of Glatch nicking a set.

Mind you I can't believe my back of 1.13 wasn't taken and I've had to get on at 1.11!!!! Far too short :o

The only slight concern is Pennetta's knee but I'm confident enough that should she have a lasting problem she wouldn't have been risked when they could have drafted in one of their other players such as Vinci as they now have some strength in depth.

Good Luck All

Pennetta WIns 6-3 6-1
Profit: £2.26

Melbourne Victory v Central Coast Mariners

Decided to get involved as Central Coast have just taken a 2-0 lead with 15 mins to go. Just hope they can keep a clean sheet now so I don't get nervous!

Yes!!! 0-3 that should be that then! 10 minutes left.

LOL 0-4 I wish I had backed the goals! 84th minute.

Central Coast Mariners Win
Profit: £0.80

Aravane Rezai v Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez

Got on at 6-2 4*-3. Really disappointed that I didn't get in earlier but a win is still a win I guess (as long as she wins!)
5-3* A break for GSM would be nice now!


Rezai Wins 6-2 6-3
Profit: £1.13
