DEFENDING champ Tomas Berdych begins his title defence at the World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam today and is 2-7 at Paddy Power to start with a
straight-sets win over world No.99 Tobias Kamke of Germany.
Berdych will be hoping for easier progress than fellow top five seed Grigor Dimitrov who almost came a cropper against qualifier Paul-Henri Mathieu yesterday before squeezing through.
Second seed Milos Raonic is 4-11 at Paddy Power to win 2-0 against Andrey Kuznetsov – who is 7-1 at bet365 for a victory – while closer to call matches include Vasek Pospisil (6-4, BetVictor) v Philipp Kohlschreiber (4-6, SportingBet) and Marcel Granollers (7-10, SportingBet) against Sergiy Stakhovsky (6-4, Betfred).
In the doubles Andy Murray teams up with Gilles Muller and the pair are 2-5 at bet365 to beat Roberto Bautista-Agut and Joao Sousa who are priced up at 15-8 by Paddy Power.
There’s also first-round action in the Memphis ATP event with Samuel Groth taking on
Yen-Hsun Lu and Sam Querrey v Benjamin Becker among the highlights.
In cycling it’s stage three of the Tour of Qatar with Bradley Wiggins the 6-4 favourite at Paddy Power.
