Australian Open Day 3 Preview and Picks

After going 2-2 on Day 2 of the Australian Open we look to bounce back with two solid plays.  Both of these plays should put money in your bank account.  Remember, log on to and place your bets.  Overall for the Australian Open, we are 5-3 on our selections.  Todays highlighted matches are:

Andy Roddick  -2500 vs. Igor Kunitsyn +1000

Andy Roddick is off to a strong start in 2011 and will look to keep it going against Kunitsyn during second-round Australian Open action on Wednesday.  The seventh ranked American reached the Brisbane final two weeks ago, losing in the finals to Robin Soderling.  Andy Roddick was very sharp in his 1st round match beating Jan Hajek in three-straight sets.  This will be third time Roddick will be playing Kunitsyn in his career.  Roddick beat Kunisyn in four sets at the 2009 Wimbledon and also beat him last year in straight sets.  This is Kunitsyns first tournament of the year.  He beat Michal Przysieny in four sets in the opening round.  Kunitsyn is a solid player who is ranked 99th in the world.  Roddicks serve will be too much and Roddick should win in three straight sets/

Pick-Roddick in 3 sets

Mardy Fish -120 vs. Tommy Robredo  -120

This will be the eighth meeting between two tour veterans.  Robredo has won four of their seven previous meetings and also leads three matches to two on hard courts.  They last faced each other at the 2009 Madrid Masters, a match that Robredo won in three sets.  More recently though Fish has been on the upswing of his career as Robredo has slight slipped in his form.  Mardy Fish in the 17th ranked player in the world where as Robredo has fallen out of the top 50.  In Fishs last match, he came back from 2 sets to zero for the first time in his career verses Victor Hanescu.  Robredo should be the fresher of the two players as he won his match in straight sets over Somdev Devvarman of India.  Although Robredo is fresher, I believe Fish has the momentum and the belief to advance.  I think Fish will find a way to get it done and win in 4 sets
