Tennis: Portas a class act.

ALBERT PORTAS and Mariano Puerta are the men to concentrate on if you fancy a bet in the Sicily International second round today, writes Paul Kealy.

Portas is a 4-7 shot with Hills and Surrey to see off the challenge of fading light Sergi Bruguera.

He did just that in Bucharest earlier this month and, after ousting Andrea Gaudenzi in the first round, will be confident of repeating the feat in Palermo.

Puerta, a very comfortable winner over Oleg Stanoytchev on Tuesday, deserves to be a warm order against Javier Sanchez.

He was won both of their previous meetings, each time on clay, and the 4-11 with Hills is very fair.

If playing at long odds-on is not your cup of tea, then try the double which comes to a shade over 11-10 with Hills.
