League: Open de Nice Côte d’Azur
BAKER TO WIN @1.67Final result: 2 - 1
Profit: 11.69 - 7 = 4.69
I already explained some of it on today's tip, Baker to win Monfils, but Baker is a player who was once a great promise for american tennis but then got injured.
He is back, or so it seems, and he should continue to perform great in my opinion.
Currently on a 17 games winning streak, he is a great clay player and doesn't seem to be affected by exhaustion.
He is already qualified for RG with a Wild Card, so not worried about him dropping on purpose.
Mikhail Kukushkin started with a great clay season but his results went much worse lately, mainly because he was injured in some tourneys. In this tournament he seems to be on a better shape, but let's not forget he only won semi-good players on this surface, in the form of Querrey and Tomic. It is true he was the underdog in both games, but I just can't see him coming from the underdog position again.
I think he needs some rest if he wants to perform at full level again in Roland Garros.
The flow of money will go with the american because this has been the trend in his games lately. People know he is on a great form and with a lot of willpower, and he shows it in the court.
I think he was lucky to beat Monfils today, but he remained stable on the court and I value that a lot on a tennis player.
He seems to have a good head.

I won this bet but the value was on Kukushkin. Baker showed he is on great form and managed to overcome a lost set. Was a great game!
