ALLA KUDRYAVTSEVA/FILIP POLASEK TO WIN @1.57Final result: 0 - 2
Profit: 0.00 - 7 = -7
Match from the first round of Roland Garros Mixed Doubles.
Pairs are showing to be quite dedicated to the mixed doubles tournament so far. Many good pairs have been formed, some fell because players didn't understand each other but almost all favourites have won and by clear results.
Their opponents were also good pairs but when you join a top doubles player from the men ranking with one from the women ranking... It's ATP merging with WTA, and the games are very entertaining.
As the tournament is quite small, because only good pairs were allowed to participate and because they wanted a short number of pairs, the 1st Round is still in play. The brackets have to last for the whole two weeks so the tournament is progressing slowly.
In this particular matchup, I believe that Kudryavtseva and Polasek have a lot more experience than their opponents on the doubles play.
Even if they have never played together, they know a lot about doubles and should really play very good here.
Agaisnt them we will have a french pair, that holds some risk because they are at home, but their doubles level is far behind that of their opponents.
Foretz plays some doubles, but not at a good level and not enough to call her a doubles player. Roger Vasselin has a very nice volley and he is always dangerous on doubles, he also has a very nice serve.
Overall, I think the favourites have a lot more advantage than the odds suggest they do.
I thought about betting on the 2-0 here but on this game I preffer to be safer and pick the ML win.
