Well, there isn't too much news actually. Going to discuss the tennis in Doha and Dubai briefly, in two early posts and will be back later with a look at the Royal League football.
Let's start with the WTA Tour. Patty Schnyder admits to being in awe, of Justine Henin's game and having lost their first 6 meetings, you can understand why. However, she got the monkey off her back, by finally beating the Belgian last year and should enter today, with a little more confidence.
Schnyder has taken Henin the distance, in 4 of those 7 matches and can "pinch" a set today. Justine is getting results, but is still not at the top of her game yet and is serving a lot of double faults, not quite in the Dementieva league yet, but a cheap point or two, is always possible.
I also like Hantuchova, to push Martina Hingis all the way. Daniela has the game to compete with the top ten and has to start finding some consistency, she took Mauresmo to three close sets last week and matches up faily well with Hingis, a lay of the Swiss Miss 2-0.
LAY 6 points Henin to win 2-0 sets 1.43 Betfair ( exposure 2.58 points)
LAY 4 points Hingis to win 2-0 sets 1.71 Betfair ( exposure 2.84 points)
