Tennis Pick (June 18th)

It seems there are not a lot of markets to open up this week which is usually the case at the beginning of the week before a Grand Slam. That means there are going to be limited choices throughout the week and I will only get involved if I think there is a decent pick to be made.

Dmitry Tursunov v Philipp Petzschner: This is the only pick I will be making to open up the week and that is backing the defending Champion, Dmitry Tursunov, to get his defence off to a good start by moving into the Second Round.

Philipp Petzschner is no mug on the grass and his game does translate well onto the surface, while he will also have an edge on the current conditions having come through three qualifying matches to reach the main draw. However, the German had been on a long losing run before these wins in the qualifiers and confidence cannot be that great, especially if he falls behind in this match.

Tursunov has reached the Final at a Challenger event on the grass this season, but he was a surprise loser to Ryan Sweeting at Queens last week and he does struggle for consistency. The Russian has usually been a really tough test on the grass as his big serve and heavy groundstrokes give him an edge on the surface.

He also has won his only previous meeting with Petzschner and I will back him to double that by winning this one at the pick 'em price.

MY PICK: Dmitry Tursunov @ 1.95 Pinnacle (2 Units)
