    4 Youzhny traded out to 4 90 again during the fourth set with the Australian Open app even listing Ebden having won the match Once winning that fourth set it was all but over with Youzhny serving the match out winning 6 3 The second was a little riskier but provided you with a very good reward Fernando Verdasco seeded number 22 was facing unseeded and little known David Goffin Verdasco was able to win the first set fairly easy 6 4 There were two main factors in the first set that were to follow Goffin only won 15 of first serve returning points while Verdasco won 40 and 60 of his own first serve points while Verdasco won 85 At this stage Goffin was performing below his average and if you were gutsy a lay of Verdasco could have been on the cards we wouldn t have In the second set Goffin switched on and picked up to 31 and 68 winning the set 6 3 The figure was even more damming in the third winning 35 and 81 David Goffin in the 4 th went up 2 games to 0 and there is where we look at the in play markets Verdasco traded out to 11 here with Goffin trading at a low of 1 10 with more than 38 000 matched at that price 430 000 at 1 20 or less There was one key statistic from our write up that made anything around the 10 price value at this stage to back Verdasco This statistic was that in his last game Goffin had 5 break points against him against a lesser opponent and he was unable to save any of them He is a solid player but ends up choking in these types of positions Verdasco had the ability to come back on his best form shown in the first set Luckily he was able to not only win his next service game but also break Goffin s next serve to go on and win the set 6 3 and the final set 6 4 You will never get all of your in play bets correct and yes it is annoying having to call up to place a bet but there is some serious cash to be made especially early in these Grand Slams to jump on seeded players who trade out to big odds in bad positions Just remember if you are taking odds that are over what they should be you will end up profiting in the long run Follow Ace TheProfits on twitter who will be discussing all things Tennis throughout the Grand Slam Please Note All of the above are the opinions of the author and are not recommendations or advice The author may not be taking every bet listed above Bet at your own risk All of our information is provided free If you want to show your support if you are wanting to join a new bookmaker please use our

    in the middle of a horror run He defeated Bjorn Phau in Doha in 3 tight sets Phau then lost 0 6 1 6 to Nieminen in Sydney before he was comprehensively outplayed by Lukas Lacko 3 6 5 7 Suggested Bet Will be curious to see if this match goes ahead If backing Troicki I suggest doing so somewhere where they pay out on retirements after the first set eg Betfair If backing Stepanek do so somewhere where you will be refunded if he retires This is a match I am avoiding altogether Match 5 Tobias Kamke vs Flavio Cipolla H2H Kamke leads 3 1 Kamke 2 0 on hardcourt Notable Trends Cipolla has lost 4 of his last 5 at Grand Slam level Kamke has lost 4 in a row at Grand Slam level Kamke has won 4 of last 5 matches Cipolla has lost 4 of last 5 matches Summary Both players made it to the second round last year but one player was certainly more impressive Tobias Kamke has showed glimpses of late He lost 6 8 in the fifth set to Dolgopolov in what would have been a massive upset Here is one of the key reasons why Kamke is going off favourite Their last three head to heads all since 7 11 11 have gone the way of Kamke all in straight sets The main one to look at is their last hardcourt matchup on 9 1 12 What stands out most here is Kamke was able to win comfortably even with Cipolla serving at a sensational 77 of first serves in Of those first serves he only won 54 of points and 42 on second serve That suggests that if he isn t getting cheap points on his first serve he is going to consistently pressured to hold serve Predicted Winner Tobias Kamke Suggested Bet Tobias Kamke 1 5 sets at 1 72 at Sportsbet Why Recent form plus recent head to head success all points to this being a Kamke win The 1 5 sets options allows Kamke to drop a set but still cover the bet Confidence 60 Match 6 Juan Monaco 11 vs Andrey Kuznetsov H2H Never previously met Notable Trends Monaco has lost 4 of the last 5 matches Monaco has lost 5 of the last 6 matches on hardcourt Kuznetsov has lost 4 in a row on hardcourt Summary The money in this match has come for Kuznetsov in from 5 76 to 4 20 I find that a bit strange considering he has only ever beaten two players in the top 100 Baghdatis on clay and Granollers on Hard While Monaco hasn t had the best preparation you d think if he didn t think he was up to playing he wouldn t have made the trip out Prior to this losing streak vs Tipsaravic Hewitt Verdasco and Baghdatis Monaco did win the ATP Kuala Lumpur tournament in September defeating Nishikori and Benneteau along the way Predicted Winner Monaco or retirement Suggested Bet Monaco may prove a solid multi leg component at around 1 27 Match 7 Kevin Anderson vs Paolo Lorenzi H2H Anderson leads 1 0 1 0 on hardcourt Notable Trends Kevin Anderson has won 11 in a row when priced at under 1 20 Lorenzi has lost 5 in a row at the Australian Open Lorenzi has lost 5 in a row at Grand Slams Summary If Anderson is feeling good off his finals appearance in Sydney you d anticipate this to be one way traffic Their previous head to head meeting was in July of last year with Anderson getting the crucial break in both sets on the way to a 6 4 6 3 victory Something to keep in mind is the performance of players who have reached the final of the previous tournament Anderson will be coming into this having played a whole week of tennis in Perth and in Sydney The emotional fatigue that comes with making a final may cause Anderson to start a little flat on Monday Suggested Bet No bet Match 8 Xavier Malisse vs Pablo Andujar H2H Malisse leads 2 1 2 matches finished in retirements Malisse won completed match on hardcourt Notable Trends Andujar has lost 9 in a row Andujar has lost 5 in a row on hardcourt Andujar has lost 5 of his last 6 in Australia Summary Malisse has started his season off in solid fashion defeating 7 th seed Klizan and Giraldo in Auckland before losing a tight 2 setter to Kohlschreiber an eventual finalist Andujar He hasn t won an ATP level match since the US Open where he beat Thomaz Belluci The most concerning loss there was a 2 6 6 7 loss to Lukas Rosol in Doha on New Years Eve Taking Benneteau to 3 sets was an improvement but losing his serve 8 times was not Go back to their previous meeting the 2011 Australian Open Andujar had a higher first serve percentage however Malisse was comprehensive in his victory winning 92 161 points breaking Andujar 6 times and dropping serve only once winning Suggested Bet Malisse 3 0 at 2 Saver 3 1 at 3 60 Multi leg Malisse H2H Confidence 65 Match 9 David Goffin vs Fernando Verdasco 22 H2H No previous meetings Notable Trends Goffin has lost 4 matches in a row vs Left Handers Verdasco has lost 4 matches in a row Summary To be fair to Verdasco on the losing 4 matches in a row they have been against Anderson Tsonga Djokovic and Istomin 3 at Hopman Cup an exhibition event Verdasco actually won for Spain When you break down the career hardcourt record of Goffin it isn t sensational He boasts only 5 career wins over top 50 players Isner 11 Troicki 30 Andujar 40 Young 46 and Malisse 49 mixed amongst 10 comprehensive losses He also lost 7 times to players outside the top 100 on hardcourt in 2012 Looking at a different perspective Verdasco went a solid 10 3 on hardcourt in 2012 against players ranked 21 and above with one loss a retirement However Goffin did the same although Verdasco s victories read to be more impressive Suggested Bet Verdasco H2H 5 set refund if applicable and make a minimum size bet Why Early 2013 form tells a story here Verdasco has been getting some matches vs high quality opponents under his belt even if it was an exhibition tournament Goffin on the other hand has only beaten Matt Ebden this year He lost to Thomaz Bellucci in Auckland even though he served 76 of first serves in The worst statistic 0 5 break points saved Confidence 70 Match 10 Jurgen Melzer 26 vs Mikhail Kukushkin H2H No previous meetings Notable Trends Kukushkin has lost 6 of last 7 vs Left Handers Melzer has lost 5 of last 6 at Grand Slam level Summary Kukushkin hasn t played since he underwent hip surgery He is lucky to have even scraped into the tournament with a ranking of 107 He didn t intend on playing until the middle of February and this is backed up with Kukushkin not even registering to try and qualify before being given a spot So that should suggest a win for Melzer then Melzer has been in average form of late That combined with Kukushkin having 4 th round points to defend from last year makes this unpredictable Is Kukushkin here purely for the paycheck Suggested Bet No Bet Match 11 Fabio Fognini vs Roberto Bautista Agut H2H Fognini leads 2 0 2 0 on indoor hardcourt Notable Trends Fognini has lost 4 in a row at the Australian Open Summary Completely disregard Fognini s win over Dimitrov in Sydney Dimitrov was drained from his final in Brisbane and couldn t get to Melbourne to be with his girlfriend Sharapova quick enough Again you can pretty much disregard the win over Raonic at Kooyong too Watching parts of the match you could tell they didn t really want to be there keeping it very simple on a 39 degree day Take away those two wins and you get yourself a 0 7 hardcourt run vs rankings 29 46 187 11 155 55 and 34 He only won three sets amongst those seven matches Bautista Agut is arguably in the best form of his career The 24 year old has started the year with a bang reaching the final in Chennai not two weeks ago Highlights along the way in Chennai include 3 sets wins over Tomas Berdych and Benoit Paire before falling to Janko Tipsaravic after taking the first set Going back to August Bautista Agut won back to back Challenger circuit titles including one of hardcourt in Pozoblanco Bautista Agut is the value here Fognini isn t at his best on hardcourt and I am of the belief that if he can get off to a great start Bautista Agut could put Fognini to the sword here Suggested Bet Bautista Agut h2h at 1 95 at Sportsbet 5 set refund better odds elsewhere Confidence 60 Match 12 Julian Reister vs Guillaume Rufin H2H Reister leads 1 0 on clay Notable Trends Rufin has lost 4 in a row on hardcourt Summary Going to keep this one short Recent form has this game going to Reister Dominant in qualifying he will be ready to fire come Monday The biggest worry for Rufin is his form to start 2013 Losing to the 551 st ranked Prakash Amritraj home court qualifier in Chennai before being trounced 2 6 1 6 by Joao Sousa For those unaware Sousa then preceded to be wiped off the court in the R32 by Florian Mayer 1 6 2 6 Not flattering for Rufin at all Suggested Bet Reister 1 5 sets at 1 91 at Sportsbet Confidence 70 Match 13 Michael Russell vs Tomas Berdych 5 H2H Berdych leads 2 1 most recent meeting 2010 all on hardcourt Notable Trends Russell has lost 4 of the last 5 at the Australian Open Berdych has won 12 of the last 13 rated at less than 1 20 Summary Michael Russell hasn t played solid ATP level tennis for some time now What does become apparent looking at the playing activity of Russell is he has played on nothing but hardcourt since mid July It has been a solid run but he hasn t beaten anyone ranked in the top 140 in that time An interesting look at Berdych s first round matches at the Australian Open since 2010 shows that 4 6 matches have had at least one reach 5 5 meaning Berdych will win at least 19 games This makes Berdych over 18 5 games tempting but the form of Berdych and the recent withdrawal in Auckland due to illness from Russell makes this a game to avoid Predicted winner Tomas Berdych Suggested Bet Nil Match 14 David Ferrer 4 vs Olivier Rochus H2H Ferrer leads 7 2 5 2 on hardcourt Notable Trends Rochus hasn t beaten Ferrer since 2006 Ferrer has won 10 in a row when priced at 1 20 or less Rochus has lost 5 of his last 6 on hardcourt Rochus has lost 7 in a row vs top 10 players Summary Ferrer got more than he bargained for from Rochus last time they met grinding out a 7 5 7 5 victory Looking deeper into that match it shouldn t have been that close Ferrer is generally solid at capitalising on break point opportunities Rochus afforded him 18 opportunities of which Ferrer broke 5 times All this with Ferrer only serving at 48 Besides being outplayed comfortably by Davydenko in Doha Ferrer has been on a rampage to start the season He dropped only 3 games vs Lacko in the Auckland QF 3 games vs Monfils in the SF and defeated Kohlschreiber 7 6 6 1 in the final If Ferrer turns up from the first point this should be over in straight sets and quite comfortably If you look at the last 2 first round Australian Open appearances for Ferrer he has gone 6 0 6 0 2 0 RET and 6 1 6 4 6 2 I predict more of the same here today Look for Ferrer to outplay Rochus in every facet of the game Suggested Bet Total games under 27 5 Confidence 65 Match 15 Ivo Karlovic vs Tim Smyczek H2H No previous meetings Notable Trends Karlovic has played a tiebreak in each of his last 11 games and 19 of his last 21 matches Karlovic has lost 4 in a row on hardcourt Summary Bit of a strange match Out of form Karlovic up against Lucky Loser Smyczek The only way to correlate their recent form is Karlovic was knocked out in three sets by young Aussie Matt Barton in Sydney qualifiers and Smyczek beat Barton in three sets in Australian Open qualifying Two out of form players is generally a no go zone Who knows who will turn up here Suggested Bet If anything tiebreak to be played at 1 30 at Bet365 could be a suitable multi leg Confidence 65 Match 16 John Millman vs Tatsuma Ito H2H Ito leads 3 1 all on hardcourt Notable Trends Ito has lost 4 in a row at Grand Slam level Ito has lost 8 of last 9 matches when priced between 2 and 3 Summary Two things have changed since Ito defeated Millman in Japan in November 1 Millman has hit home soil 2 His confidence levels has boosted immeasurably Sometimes all it takes is a home crowd and a night match against a top 10 player for you to realise just what you are capable of achieving Millman pushed Andy Murray to the absolute limit in Brisbane not long after defeating Ito 6 4 6 1 The telling statistic Ito won only 29 of points on his second serve Millman outplayed Ito in every area that day We are still playing in Australia Millman is still confident so I can t see a big turnaround here on Monday Suggested Bet Millman 1 5 sets at 1 72 gives you a bit of breathing room in case the nerves get the better of Millman early Confidence 75 Match 17 Albert Ramos vs Marcos Baghdatis 28 H2H No previous meetings Notable Trends Ramos has lost 5 in a row on hardcourt Ramos has lost 6 of the last 7 at Grand Slam level Baghdatis has won 4 of his last 5 vs Left Handers Baghdatis has won 12 in a row when priced at 1 20 or less Summary From a personal point of view this year we have seen Baghdatis the fittest he has been for some time When he is fitter he gets into position earlier and becomes a more attacking player Don t stress about the fadeouts of Baghdatis in the second set of each of the last 2 AAMI Classic matches It is an exhibition tournament there is no point pushing yourself when you have already got enough time on court under your belt Ramos has started the year poorly Losses to Paolo Lorenzi and wildcard Olivier Rochus are not what Ramos would have had in mind to start the year Margaret Court Arena Monday Night Baghdatis will have his Cypriot cheersquad out in full force Everything points to a very solid win for Baghdatis especially if he plays to the level he has throughout the first fortnight of 2013 Suggested Bet Under 31 5 games at 1 80 at Sportsbet Confidence 65 Match 18 Mikhail Youzhny 23 vs Matthew Ebden H2H Youzhny leads 1 0 on hardcourt indoor Notable Trends Ebden has lost 4 in a row on hardcourt Ebden has lost 4 of his last 5 at Grand Slam level Summary Another one of the matches that is hard to get a solid read on This is mainly due to Mikhail Youzhny On his day he is sensational to watch But he is just so inconsistent Ebden is another up and down player In all honest Ebden should have beaten Granollers in Sydney It was a choke Suggested Bet Both plays too unreliable to get a read on this match No bet Match 19 Evgeny Donskoy vs Adrian Ungur H2H Donskoy leads 1 0 on clay Notable Trends Donskoy has lost 4 in a row at Grand Slam level Ungur has lost 5 of last 6 at Grand Slam level Summary Not a game to have your money on If anything follow the money of Donskoy h2h as this will be Ungur s first match since November Suggested Bet No Bet Match 20 Maxime Authom vs Carlos Berlocq H2H No previous meetings Notable Trends Berlocq has lost 4 of last 5 in Australia Berlocq has lost 6 of the last 7 on hardcourt Summary Will keep this one short Berlocq has gone 2 9 on hardcourt since mid March 2012 with the two wins over Giraldo and Matosevic The losses haven t been great at all Authom on the other hand has just breezed his way through qualifying The most impressive win of the three would have to be vs Dustin Brown winning 7 5 6 1 with a 1 st serve below 50 Berlocq pulled out of qualifying in Auckland due to an unknown reason No lead up play for a player that prefers claycourt is not a good sign at all Suggested Bet Authom 1 5 sets at 2 20 at Sportsbet Confidence 60 Match 21 Victor Hanescu vs Kei Nishikori 16 H2H Nishikori leads 1 0 on clay Notable Trends Hanescu has lost 4 in a row at Grand Slam level Summary Nishikori is playing some magnificent tennis He is systematically breaking down opponents and it is stunning to watch You only need to look back to how he took care of Dolgopolov placing around 70 of his shots onto the
