The table tennis circuit continues on Tuesday with a full slate of action from around the world. Most of which is taking place in Russia, Ukraine, and Czechia. That’s been the case since the shutdown, and now there’s the Challenger Series in Germany which recently resumed. If you want to go further down, you can find table tennis in Armenia on some days.
Germany is in the process of getting their football league underway. The Bundesliga is planning on starting May 9. Everything is subject to change in the world today, but May is the expected start date. Germany has initiated mass testing across the country. That’s going to include testing players and personnel before matches.
There are testing shortages in North America, so the idea of putting a plan into place, at least at the moment, that includes testing every player is difficult. That may change soon, though, and it’s going to be the only way forward to play. You can’t wait for somebody to come up with symptoms because it’ll be too late.
Like I’ve said before, July is probably the earliest month they can start playing games. There’s a lot of that goes into playing, including training to get ready to play again. Germany appears to be on the forefront of having the biggest sports league up and running first. No disrespect to the CPBL in Taiwan, but Bundesliga football will attract more attention. We’ll have you covered for the Bundesliga in Germany as soon as the regular season begins.
We were able to hit another table tennis pick on Monday morning, as Tomas Tregler was an easy winner against Miroslav Horejsi in straight sets. Our other selection was canceled, so the one pick was good enough to have another winning day. That’s six straight table tennis wins, with our overall record advancing to 26-16. It’s not perfect, but more than enough for a profit and that’s all you can really ask for. We have another Czech TT Star Series pick for you below, featuring Tomas Tregler and David Reitspies.
Tomas Tregler vs. David Reitspies Czech TT Star Series Betting Odds:
Tomas Tregler vs. David Reitspies Prediction:
David Reitspies was a solid winner for us just over a week ago against Tomas Tregler. He was the better player on that day and caught Tregler sleeping. Tregler was stuck in a hole at that point and it took him a minute to get out of it. We were able to take advantage of it and back Reitspies to an easy victory.
Tregler was on a 3-10 run for one of the most brutal stretches he’s had in ages. Bouncing out of it was inevitable for Tregler, though, who has been better recently. Since going 3-10, Tregler is 14-5 in his previous 19 matches. He’s on a five-match winning streak heading into Tuesday.
Reitspies was on a nice run while Tregler was faltering last week. He went 14-5 in 19 matches just like Tregler has done recently. And Reitspies has been playing well recently, too. He is 6-2 in his last eight matches, with losses against Miroslav Horejsi and Antonin Gavlas. The loss against Horejsi was a fairly big upset, though Reitspies was able to respond for wins against Seibert and Kleprlik.
Neither of those two opponents are quality players and Reitspies was a heavy favourite in both contests. Reitspies is 7-4 over Tregler in their careers, but Tregler was impressive in their last meeting with a win in straight sets, 11-7, 11-6, 13-11. He’s playing better lately after going through that cold spell. When Tregler is focused he is one of the better players in the league. Reitspies is good, but I can’t see him as a -155 favourite in this spot. There’s more value on the underdog in this match.
