Anna Blinkova is a potential star of the WTA ranks and the Russian youngster could cause problems for Alize Cornet in their Limoges Open second-round clash.

Blinky, as she is known by growing army of fans, is one of the top young talents in Russia and a clash against the experienced Cornet in the Frenchwoman's homeland should not deter her backers.

Betway give Blinkova a start of five games on their handicap and the chance to back the outsider looks worth taking.

Yanina Wickmayer could have too much for home player Luksika Kumkhum in Hua Hin if reproducing the form that saw her defeat Vera Zvonareva in her Thailand opener.

Wickmayer is blessed with plenty of talent and is no stranger to going deep in tournaments of this stature when she hits form.

World number two Roger Federer is 8-13 with Betway to win the ATP Finals, which start in London on Sunday. Top seed Rafael Nadal is 3-1.

The Next Gen ATP Finals for players aged 21 and under continues in Milan, where Andrey Rublev meets Denis Shapovalov.
