  1. John, don’t you think-

    Zarina Diyas can be beaten by this new & improved Monica Niculescu. You are comparing to the old niculescu of 2 years.

    Old women Vinci & Niculescu have retooled their skills & fitness….hence they are winning big now!

    Elena Rybakina can surprise an out of form Caroline Garcia on home soil! Or Atleast steal 1 set as Elena is in top form, right?

      • If you just watch Niculescu’s game for even 5 minutes you can see that she has improved her serving and returns a lot from 2014 when Diyas the match in 2 sets.

        Besides Niculesu’s form is far better tahn that of Diyas.

        Diyas injury problems keep appearing at regular intervals constraining her movement & power. But I agree that Diyas is a very solid player when healthy.

        But my bet i did here is +1.5 sets Diyas. She is capable of winning a set.

        You said below “I can’t post my actual bets here.. previously they were not the exact same as my advice but from now on they will be”

        Can you please e-mail it to me (even if it is same) if you cannot post it here? I will keep it confidential if you want. I just want to bet on “your winning bets” only and not lose money on the general betting tips you post which contains many losing picks..

        I am doing this betting thing to pay for the cancer treatment of my sick close relative.

        • Hello Jaya, this sounds like a very bad way to pay for something so important. Gambling on sport can never be a reliable way to make money. Espeically womens tennis. lol Cheers

      • As said earlier, Niculescu is the better player and won. As 1000’s of people are betting based on your predictions, you need to do indepth research & analysis besides watching the games and making notes of their strengths & Analysis as I do.

        Niculescu has improved her court movement and defense also. Hence, Niculescu was the only winner and should have been recommended and not

        Not Diyas in 2. Diyas in 3 was a bit more logical but is still a loser. How many people lost money on this Diyas recommendation?

        • If you watched the match you would know that Diyas could have EASILY won. She was up a break THREE times in the final set. The ONLY reason Diyas lost was because she hit stupid unforced errors. Diyas is the better player and I stand by my original prediction. Diyas should have won and is the better player,

    • And no, I don’t think Garcia will lose. It is illogical. but anything is possible, illogical is normal these days so why not

  2. John,

    When are the separate pages for discussion for 2018 Taiwan Open and St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy going to appear?

      I can’t post my actual bets here.. previously they were not the exact same as my advice but from now on they will be
