HEATHER WATSON defied the odds to knock out Julia Goerges in round one of the Indian Wells Masters and on Friday the British No.1 is again the underdog.
Watson is 7-5 against Camila Giorgi, who is 10 places higher in the world rankings at No.33 and priced up at 4-6 by William Hill. Their only previous meeting, won by Giorgi, went the distance and Paddy Power’s 5-4 for over 2.5 sets looks decent value.
There’s also plenty of men’s first-round matches from Indian Wells on Friday and home favourite Sam Querrey is 4-5 at Betfred against Sergiy Stakhovsky (23-20, Sportingbet) while the likes of Marcos Baghdatis, Steve Johson and Jerry Jancowiz are all eyeing progress.
At the Cricket World Cup defending champs India take on Zimbabwe and there’s the likes of snooker, boxing, golf and rugby before NBA action takes us into the weekend.
Good luck with your bets and as always let’s hear your sporting tips and thoughts.
