Tennis Picks (February 23rd)

With two of the three outright picks still in the running in their respective tournaments and the daily picks proving to be very profitable, it has been a decent week so far in the tennis picks.

The Australian Open was a big disappointment for me personally as I couldn't get much going, but the last couple of weeks have at least made up for that somewhat.

Hopefully the last couple of days can complete a fine week.

Petra Kvitova - 5.5 games v Sara Errani: Petra Kvitova continues to play at a very high level and I think she is going to be able to see off Sara Errani as the Italian did look a little fatigued in her last match against Roberta Vinci.

I don't know whether that was down to Errani feeling the mental anguish of playing against her best friend, but there definitely some areas of her game that will be exploited by Kvitova on current form.

Kvitova has the edge when it comes to the power and the serve and I don't think she will be too bothered about having to hit through Errani following comfortable back to back wins over very strong defenders in Agnieszka Radwanska and Caroline Wozniacki.

I do expect Errani to give Kvitova some problems, but eventually see the Czech player coming through to win the title with a 6-3, 6-3 win.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - 2.5 games v Gilles Simon: I know Jo-Wilfried Tsonga spent a lot of time on court in his Quarter Final win over Bernard Tomic, while Gilles Simon has come through in fairly routine fashion, but I am still surprised that the layers feel this match will be a lot closer than I think it will.

Tsonga has won 4 of the 6 matches between these compatriots, including 2 wins on indoor hard courts and I think he was serving well enough to exert enough pressure on Simon to see him through in this one.

The faster court should definitely favour Tsonga's game in this one and he should be a more comfortable winner than he was against Tomic as long as he takes his chances in this one on the break points as that was the main reason Tsonga needed three sets to see off the Australian yesterday. I have this one as a 6-3, 6-4 win for Tsonga and so will back him to clear this spread.

MY PICKS: Petra Kvitova - 5.5 Games @ 2.17 Pinnacle (2 Units)
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - 2.5 Games @ 1.92 Stan James (2 Units)

Weekly Update: 15-8, + 14 Units (45 Units Staked, + 31.11% Yield)
