Weekly Overview (10) & (11)

The Overrule returns after our short in-season break which means it's time to have a belated look back at the breakdown of our most recent settled selections.

The Overrule's 20/1 each-way selection in WTA Katowice - Klara Zakopalova - lost out in the second round to Maria Elena Camerin. The Czech blew a 3-1 lead in the deciding set and ended the match in poor fashion losing five successive games to exit the tournament. The final featured the two pre-tournament favorites - Roberta Vinci and Petra Kvitova - with Vinci taking the title in straight sets.

The following week our pending 5/1 outright selection on the Czechs to retain the Fed Cup title they had won the previous two years came to an end in Italy on clay. The opening day started badly for the Czechs with Sara Errani defeating Lucie Safarova in two tight sets and things got worse when Petra Kvitova failed to hold serve once in a straight sets defeat to Roberta Vinci.

At 2-0 down the tie was always going to be an uphill battle for Petra and co. to retrieve on the Sunday. However, Kvitova produced a stunning end to her match with Sara Errani by reeling off game after game to keep the Czechs alive at 2-1. As the dark and rain loomed the Safarova/Vinci rubber was held over until Monday where Vinci prevailed in three sets amid plenty of drama, nerves and tension. The Italians will host Russia in the final - who pulled off their own comeback from 2-0 down to defeat Slovakia in the other semi-final.

The French Open is a mere six days away and The Overrule will be back later in the week following the release of the draw to take a look at any pre-tournament selections that appeal to us as well as any opening round match betting selections that provide us with an edge.

Tomorrow The Overrule will take an overview at our pending "Specials" selections from the outset of the season to gauge our progress on those wagers at the near mid-point of the year.
