Weekly Overview (2)

There wasn't that much scope for match-bets during the week as far as The Overrule was concerned, so we allowed our outright selections to reach their conclusion which proved profitable for us. Here's a breakdown of what we did.

Sofia Arvidsson couldn't overcome illness and Alize Cornet in first round action in Paris which took our 50/1 each-way selection out of contention. The story of the week in Paris was dominated by the further slide of Petra Kvitova. This was a perfect opportunity for Kvitova to gain confidence playing in conditions that are optimal against opposition that she is superior to. However, Petra could only go 1-1 in Paris and her serve was atrocious. This is a hugely worrying sign for the former Wimbledon champion.

Given this latest failure, we cannot consider to back Petra again until a time where she proves she is back on the right track with form and results. There will be times where she is technically overpriced in the coming weeks, but unfortunately Petra doesn't deserve our trust and more importantly our money in the near future.

Maria Kirilenko delivered the title in Pattaya after blowing a commanding lead against Sabine Lisicki in the final. Kirilenko led 5-2 in the deciding set and had two match points on Sabine's serve, but soon found herself 6-5 down and needing to break to stay in the match. Makiri went on to win 11 of the last 12 points in the match to break to love and win the tie-break 7-1.

Weekly performance - Stake: 6.00 Profit/Loss: +5.00 ROI: 83.33%

Season performance - Stake: 67.00 Profit/Loss: +27.71 ROI: 41.36%

Soon The Overrule will have write-ups for ATP action in Montpellier, Zagreb and Vina del Mar where the much awaited return to the tour of Rafael Nadal will dominate the news for the entire week.
