Radwanska v Davis

TENNIS - Eastbourne, England ( Women's )

2017-06-27 15:00

"Davis to pole-vault over Aggy"

Agnieszka Radwanska is from Poland, aged 28 and ranked 10 in the world. She has been ranked as high as 2 and has amassed 20 career titles over the years. She enjoys playing on grass and was in the final of this event 2 years ago. However she has had a poor season and this is her first grass court tournament of the year. The only tournament she has won more than 2 matches in was Sydney, back in January. She has had some surprising loses since then and must be low on confidence.

Lauren David is American, aged 23 and ranked 27 in the world. She has one career title which she won this year in Auckland, beating Strycova and Ostapenko along the way. At 5 foot 2, she is not a natural grass court player but is getting in a lot of practice before Wimbledon. In February she qualified in Doha and won 2 more matches in the main draw. In this current tournament she lost a see-sawing match against Schiavone in qualifying but then qualified as a lucky loser anyway.

Info:  Eastbourne / grass courts

Head to Head:  Radwanska won their only match, 2 years ago in Nottingham.

Summary:  Value for Davis at 2.85.


1.46 Radwanska v Davis 2.85

England U21 v Germany U21

How good are England? They have not really impressed so far, but they are getting better all the time and maybe they will reach some kind of peak when it is time for this semi final.

Who are they trying to fool? They pretend to be disappointed, the Germans, after their 0-1 loss against Italy. They knew of course that the Czechs were struggling against Denmark and losing to Italy and thereby playing the semi final against England, talk about the perfect scenario for the Germans. As Italy only needed to win their match against Germany everyone concerned, the Slovaks apart, were quite happy playing out the match without much ado.

Germany have given the impression to be a bit stronger than England, so far that is, but I would not bet on this to be 100% true. The two best squads are in the other semi final and I think that England will have as good a chance as Germany to win this semi final.

N Redmond, key player, and N Chalobah went off injured vs Poland and they will need to be assessed ahead of this game. They were taken off as a precaution and I expect them to play tomorrow. Will Hughes, who has just signed for Watford, replaced Chalobah against Poland and J Murphy came on for Redmond.

Very tempting odds on the England win.

The outsider.


Spain U21 v Italy U21

Yes, I also think that Spain have the strongest squad in this tournament, but only 1.70 against this talented and highly competitive Italian side? No, the price is too short.

Di Biagio, the Italy coach, reverted to his starting line up in their first game vs Denmark when they faced Germany. One change only, as Chiesa replaced Petagna.

Italy were the better side, but Germany were not at their very best.

The bookmakers are of course aware that both Berardi and Conti will miss this semi final due to suspensions. Petagna and Calabria will be their likely replacements. Conti who has been so great for Italy raiding the right flank from his wing back position. The book makers also know that Spain rested their best players in their last game, vs Serbia and consequently Spain will be the fresher side tomorrow and I cannot argue with that.

Advantage Spain in other words, but whenever these two nations, these hot rivals are playing against eachother, on any level, there can never be a certain winner, at least that is my stand point.

I would need evens to actually back the favourite.
