WTA New Haven

A healthy field in New Haven with 4 of the top 10 and 9 of the top 20 set to compete. There are many individual story lines in this field but that would be for an article on Second Serve Ace - unfortunately, I don't have the time at the moment to write that story.

As far as the pricing is concerned two of the Russians - Ekaterina Makarova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova - are considerably overpriced in a field where The Overrule wouldn't like to be backing anyone at single digits in the outright market for a variety of reasons.

Sorana Cirstea continues to be overvalued due to her run in Toronto. As many of you are aware opposing Cirstea and Julia Goerges as favorites has often provided plenty of value and a high frequency of winners to match. We're happy to oppose Cirstea with Pavlyuchenkova. Cirstea, Goerges and Sabine Lisicki are players to look to oppose at the US Open if the price is right which it might very well be.

1* Ekaterina Makarova win New Haven (each-way) at 33/1 (Betfred) (each-way terms 1/2 odds 1-2 places)

1* Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova win New Haven (each-way) at 50/1 (Paddy Power) (each-way terms 1/2 odds 1-2 places)

4* Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova beat Sorana Cirstea at 6/4 (Bet Victor)


  1. Excellent call on Pav who's now into 120 from 810 on Betfair for the US Open!

  2. Thanks. Hopefully we can get at least one of Makarova/Pavlyuchenkova into the final.
