As with all the other tournaments on offer this week, we are seeing these players on court for the first time in 2021 as part of the Australian Open qualifying process.

With game handicaps and totals not widely available at the time or writing, I will have to bypass these matches for writing purposes unless a head to head market stands out.

Match Thoughts

  • Were this match in Australia, I would be more tempted in the price on Blake Mott to defeat Elias Ymer. Unfortunately what I saw from Mott in the UTR Series wasn’t overly convincing, so I am happy to pass.
  • There are a couple of match-ups involving some older veterans of the tour that I am happy to avoid with no clear understanding of their form and fitness. I am looking at Istomin vs Giustino, Donskoy vs Zhang, Troicki vs Rodionov, Klizan vs Alves, Brown vs Moriya, Ebden vs Kubler and Kamke vs Laaksonen when I say this.
  • Taro Daniel looked to make great strides late in 2020, and should be far too strong for Subervi today. If you can get the -5 game handicap, I would be tempted.
  • It is 2021 and I actually think Akira Santillan could be slight value around the $3.40 mark against Huesler. First set may be a touch better value than full match, as Santillan always tends to have question marks around his fitness, and it is far easier to envisage him losing from a set up than winning from a set down.
  • The match is going to be on the racquet of Tung-Lin Wu today against Jay Clarke, and I think there is actually enough value in his price to justify a 1 unit selection on him today.
  • I am still considering a 1 unit selection on Rinky Hijikata against Christopher Eubanks. I was hoping for $4 though so it is unlikely to become a play at this late stage.
