Tennis Picks February 25th

I really needed to take a second look as the results came through last night as the layers bashed my brains in with some excellent capping.

Three of my four losing picks yesterday lost by 0.5 games which is either ridiculously bad luck or horrible decision making... Either way, it didn't feel good!

Fortunately, both picks from Dubai were winners, although the bad news kept coming as John Isner went out of the tournament in Memphis and leaves me with just Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the outright market (who is down a break in the final set in his Semi Final against Juan Martin Del Potro at the time of writing).

Hopefully this week ends in a much more positive note than Black Friday.

David Ferrer - 3.5 games v David Nalbandian: It is a little funny to think that just over a year ago was the last time these players met- that was in the Final at Auckland when it was David Nalbandian set as the favourite.

David Ferrer should be far too consistent for Nalbandian at this stage of their careers, although it is a dangerous pick as the Argentine is playing at home and has been in very good form this week.

Both players have made easy progress through the draw, but I just feel Nalbandian will make too many errors and that should allow the Spaniard to be a little too strong and come through in straight sets.

Milos Raonic - 4.5 games v Benjamin Becker: I know Milos Raonic came up a little short to cover this same spread yesterday, but I am going to go back to the well with him today.

Becker is a solid player, but one that can suddenly start spraying errors and that should allow Raonic to come through in straight sets with a break in each.

This will rely on him serving first to make things that much easier for Raonic, but I am going to stick with him despite his failure to cover yesterday.

MY PICKS: David Ferrer - 3.5 games @ 1.80 Paddy Power (2 Units)
Milos Raonic - 4.5 games @ 2.10 Ladbrokes (2 Units)

Weekly Update: 9-9, - 1.3 Units (38 Units Staked)
