With the end of the grass court season, we see a slight uptick in clay activity before US Open preparation starts in earnest. The elite are opting out of this week which means more even odds and potentials for upset. Umag and Istanbul is where our free picks hail from as Bastad and Bad Gastein also chime in with tennis action.

Last Stand on Clay for the Men
Two venues are competing this week for the premium athletes on the ATP circuit as the clay season winds to a close. Umag in Croatia and Bastad located in Sweden are the venues that will see the following duke it out for titles.
- Gael Monfils
- Tommy Robredo
- Andres Seppi
- David Goffin
In particular, Andres Seppi has been on a roll and looks to be a good value. He is also motivated after being upset here last year by a qualifier. Look for both the ML and spread bets to be exploited by us at APEX Tennis Betting.
Austria is not seeing the defending champion return. Andrea Petkovic is not here but Errani, Stosur, Knapp, and Witthoeft lead the field at this WTA event. Two people of note highlight our wagering interest. Tamira Paszek is a local that is making a comeback from injury. She has a pedigree as a slam semi finalist and her game is rounding back into form. Errani got to the finals at Bucharest and is on a roll. With the elite power players skipping this event, her game has an excellent chance to prevail.
Istanbul has the rest of the ladies in action. Cornet is trying to salvage her game. Venus is enjoying the sites. Jankovic has the best realistic shot at winning this. Elina Svitolina is hoping to build up being a French Open quarterfinalist. If you had only one future to bet on this week, make it Jelena Jankovic to win the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Cup. Good fortune to all here and we will see you next time here at APEX Tennis Betting.
