<h2>WTA Gstaad - Former Champion</h2><p>Returning to Gstaad brings back many happy memories for Viktorija Golubic. Known for having one of the best one-handed backhands on the WTA Tour, the 25-year-old lifted the trophy at the Ladies Championship Gstaad inaugural edition in 2016. Adding to this, Golubic started her Gstaad campaign with an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win over Antonia Lottner.</p><p>The 2016 champion returns to action this Thursday against former world No.5 Eugenie Bouchard. Currently ranked outside the top 140, Bouchard won only 43.24% of the matches played over the last 12 months. Nevertheless, the Canadian is through to the second round in Gstaad after coming back from a set down to edge past home favorite Timea Bacsinszky.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, the sportsbooks are expecting a close encounter with Bouchard as the slight favorite at -115 with Pinnacle. Even though we understand Eugenie’s favoritism after her performance in the previous round, it’s impossible to go against the Swiss player on this event. On the other hand, fading Eugenie on this price range is always an interesting approach due to her inconsistency. The market is well aware of these two things with Golubic’s price dropping 11.27% since the opening line. Despite the steam move on Viktorija’s <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/tennis/" target="_blank" title="Live Betting Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a>, it’s still possible to find some value on her current price. For that reason, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on Golubic’s moneyline at +110 <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4512&amp;book=Bet365" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">at Bet365</a> as the most value play for this match.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3518145, "sportsbooksIds":[238,43,1096,19,180], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><h2>ATP Bastad – Player to Fade</h2><p>Richard Gasquet will make his first appearance at the SkiStar Swedish Open in Bastad. The 32-year-old hopes of becoming the third French player to win the title in Bastad after Thierry Tulasne in 1981 and Benoit Paire in 2015. Known as one of the most talented players in the game, Gasquet won his 15th ATP World Tour title last month at s-Hertogenbosch. Nevertheless, the No.4 failed to reach the second round of Wimbledon for the fourth time in his career after a disappointing defeat in the opening round against fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils.</p><p>Looking now at Richard’s draw on this event, the former world No.7 won’t have an easy task on his debut against Gerald Melzer. The Austrian produced one of his best-ever performances in the first round with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Corentin Moutet. On the other hand, the slow and heavy conditions in Bastad should benefit Melzer on this match-up. Having said that, the value is definitely on Gerald’s side with <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4550&amp;book=Pinnacle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Sportsbook">Pinnacle</a> offering a very price for the Austrian to win just one set with his +1.5 Set Handicap at +117.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3518721, "sportsbooksIds":[238,43,1096,19,180], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p>
