Tennis Picks July 7th- ATP Newport and Davis Cup

The prices are finally out for the matches today and I think there may be a couple of small plays that we can make.

As always, I will update the weekly totals from the daily picks as we go through the week and will then update totals on Sunday evening.

Now on to the picks:

ATP Newport Double: John Isner and Edouard Roger-Vasselin: I am picking these two players to get through to a Semi Final meeting with one another on Saturday.

John Isner meets Alex Bogomolov Jr as he looks to become the first Number 1 seed to win this event and remove the 'Casino Curse'. Isner has all the tools to win a grass court event and has come through the first 2 Rounds without losing a set.

Alex Bogomolov has had 2 tougher matches this week, but his level of competition has not been to the level of Isner's.

Isner also holds a 2-0 head to head record over Bogomolov, including a straight sets win in Miami earlier this season.

Edouard Roger-Vasselin has played some decent tennis this week to come through in straight sets and now faces Tobias Kamke, a player that he has beaten twice before in previous meetings. Roger-Vasselin has had a good time on the grass in recent weeks, but Kamke has not been at his best on the surface.

Kamke has come through in straight sets himself this week, but his wins have been based on winning a couple of tie breaks and he has had a double fault-itis and could find himself in a bit of trouble against an opponent he has not beaten before.

Davis Cup: Juan Monaco win 3-1 in sets: Juan Monaco opens the Davis Cup tie for Argentina against Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan and he will be expected to come through with a win.

However, both Monaco and Golubev have struggled in recent weeks and so a few nerves could come into play in the match. Golubev has not won a match on clay this season and has lost 14 in a row on all surfaces, while Monaco has lost his last 3 matches.

Monaco's game is also one where losing a set is entirely possible- his serve is a big weakness, while he can blow hot and cold on his groundstrokes.

Golubev has the potential to push the match into a couple of tie breaks and so will have chances to at least take a set.

Monaco has beaten Golubev twice this season on the clay courts, winning 4 sets and losing 1.
