Jelena Jankovic is from Serbia, she is aged 31 and ranked 37th in the world. She is a former number 1 player but has struggled this year with injury. As a result she is only 13 and 18 on the year however last week she made the final in Guangzhou in which she lost to Tsurenko. Earlier in the year in June she won 3 matches in Mallorca and in Indian Wells she won 2 matches including a win over Vandeweghe. Apart from these three tournaments she has not won more than one match in any tournament though.
Daria Gavrilova is Australian although born in Russia, she is 22 years old and ranked 48th in the world. She is 21 and 18 on the year and wins 59.5% of her matches on hard courts. She has had a reasonable year which started well when she won 3 matches in the Australian, defeating Kvitova in the 2nd round. She beat Kvitova again in Madrid but this was on clay. Recently she has been unlucky to draw strong opponents in the first or second round of tournaments.
Info: In the head to head record, Jankovic won their only meeting last year in Hong Kong 6-1 6-1.
Court surface: Hard court
Summary: Jankovic said she was tired after her run to the final last week and also played a number of doubles matches. Value for Jankovic at 2.02, if a days rest revives her.
2.02 Jankovic v Gavrilova 1.91
Crotone v Atalanta

You know what I think about Crotone by now, they are pretty useless and it seems like Atalanta are only marginally better. The general consensus after the Atalanta home loss against Palermo was that their coach Gasperini is fumbling in the darkness, without both a proper team and a proper system. Even Kessie who has received so much applause this season played a pathetic game vs Palermo. Gasperini has to make changes, but will it be for the better? It cannot get any worse.
Still it is almost impossibe to see the present Crotone side winning a match.
Burnley v Watford
FBENG Premier League > Regular Season-16

Why are Burnley as big as 2.95? Watford have won two games in a row and they have scored seven goals and that is why Burnley are considered outsiders at Turf Moor.
Burnley should be able to do better this season and I am waiting for a big game from them. Their 2-0 home win against Liverpool was a bizarre result, but I would like to seem them winning a deserved game, if you know what I mean.
Watford look confident and I have nothing negative to say about Mazzarri’s team, but the odds look lop sided in this fixture. Defender D Janmaat is on their injury list.
I prefer the home win.
Cagliari v Sampdoria
FBITA Serie A > Regular Season-16
2016-09-26 21:00:00 (This report was created at 2016-09-23 10:00:19)
Who was the best Cagliari player against Juventus? Storari their keeper, who only let in four goals. Cagliari faced Juventus at the worst moment but in general Cagliari are two different animals, strong at home and poor on their travels. Ionita remains on the sidelines and I doubt that Farias will be back.
Sampdoria are on a losing run and they did not look too good against Bologna. The Muriel form has disappeared, obviously only lasting for two games and Quagliarella does not look quite comfortable either and Budimir will probably replace him. Barreto will be suspended for this match, but Alvarez will be available again.
Likely home win.
