Radwanska fighting tough to preserve her top-20 status
Del Potro ought to have too much for opponent Dimitrov
Sky Action, from 6am, & BT Sport 1, from 5.30am Wednesday
Daria Kasatkina could be worth backing for her China Open clash with Agnieszka Radwanska, but the Pole is trying hard to retain her top-20 status in the sport.
Radwanska heads the time spent in the top 20 ranks having been there for more than 500 weeks successively. That's a phenomenal effort and may well be a record she wants to preserve and add to, so it could be a dangerous time to oppose Aga.
For a bet today, stay in Beijing but cross to the men's tournament, in which Grigor Dimitrov meets Juan Martin del Potro.
Another year has passed and Del Potro has not added to his solitary Grand Slam triumph at the 2009 US Open, and his failure to win much at or near the top level serves to make life difficult for his backers.
Delpo seems to be happy enough in Beijing, however, and would normally be expected to defeat a player of Dimitrov's quality so he can be chanced as a slight favourite. There could be better to come from him too.
J M del Potro
1pt 8-11 general
