The match I'm going to tip here is:
Australian Open - doubles tournament - 2nd round
Bopanna/Nestor vs Lopez/Mirnyi
(these options were not available so I had to select some almost random names for the title)
So, what do we have here?
We have a pretty new couple formed by the old guns Rohan Bopanna and Daniel Nestor, veterans of the doubles tour, curently ranked no. 27 and no. 4 in the world. The've started this new partnership in the end of the last year but they it seems they've found the chemistry in this start of 2015. In the last week they won their first ATP trophy together, in Sydney, where they have beaten 4 very strong teams, all of them qualified and in the 2nd round here, in AO. They've worked very well together, dropping only 2 sets in the process.
On the other side of the court we'll have an older couple in Feliciano Lopez and Max Mirnyi.
Mirnyi is Nestor's former partner and they've been no1 couple together, but since then Max spent a year in a average partnership with Horia Tecau and this last year in 2014 he cruised in muddy waters, not having a stable partnership and being completly unsuccesful. He fell on the 46th place and, together with his partner in the today match they have lost in the first round in 5 from the last 6 tournaments they played (in the 6th case losing in the 2nd round). Here they passed in the 1st round in 3 sets over a couple of young australian guys, no names in doubles at this level.
Moreover, Feli Lopez has an awful start of 2015 in singles, as I said in a succesful tip where I've bet against him 3 days ago. He lost 5 games in a row and here, in AO, he passed luckily the first round and even more lucky over the 2nd round, where Adrian Mannarino had to withdraw because of a injury after outplaying Lopez for the first two sets.
So, considering all the facts I see much betting value in Bopana/Nestor's odds and I chose to bet on their win by minimum 3 games. The bet will be void if the difference will be exaactly 2 games.
Let's go green!
