Tuesday's Sport: FA Cup, Snooker and Tennis in the limelight

It may be almost six weeks until the Premier League resumes, but there’s plenty of lower-league English football to enjoy in the meantime, with five FA Cup first-round replays scheduled for Tuesday.

As well as football, snooker's UK Championship continues and there are two key matches in tennis' end-of-season ATP Finals in Turin to enjoy.

Football: Gulls sense major upset

OddsDerby 1/10, Draw 17/2, Torquay 25/1

Torquay United showed great spirit earlier this month to hit back from two goals down to force a replay by drawing 2-2 with League One side Derby County in the initial contest at Plainmoor.

Common sense suggests the Gulls have missed the chance to progress to the second round of the FA Cup, but they thrashed Aldershot Town 6-1 in the National League recently and will not be taken lightly by a Derby side that struggled to impose themselves in Devon.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, National League North outfit Curzon Ashton are 11/2 to spring a major surprise at League One Cambridge United while Weymouth need a minor miracle if they are to progress to the second round at the expense of AFC Wimbledon.

AFC Fylde, eighth in National League North, travel to Gillingham, who caused a big upset of their own in the EFL Cup last week when they knocked out Premier League side Brentford.

Solihull Moors, challenging for a play-off spot in the National League, will fancy their chances of beating League Two strugglers Hartlepool at odds of 7/5 in the North East even though the initial match ended 2-2.

Mark Selby, who has won the UK Championship on two occasions - in 2012 and 2016 - takes on Hossein Vafaei, while Shaun Murphy, who beat Marco Fu in the final 14 years ago, comes up against David Gilbert.

OddsRafael Nadal 6/5, Felix Auger-Aliassime 4/6

Rafael Nadal has never won the ATP Finals title and he got off to the worst possible start this time around after losing his opening match to the American eighth seed Taylor Fritz.

On Tuesday in Turin he faces Felix Auger-Aliassime who was also beaten in his first match in the tournament, by the Norwegian third seed Casper Ruud.

Nadal can be backed at 6/5 to beat Auger-Aliassime while Ruud is 6/5 to continue his good start in the tournament by defeating Fritz.
