How much money would you give for your fav's victory

You're in a dark room with the ATP match fixer... You can't really see his face, but can barely see the initials TN sewed in gold on his shirt...
You're there to make sure your favourite wins the next slam...
Haggling begins... How much are you willing to put on the table for your favourite to have a 100% chance of winning the next slam?

I would be willing to put 100 euros for a certain Fed victory.

And how much to make sure the guy you hate doesn't win the slam?

I'd put 80 euros for the certainty Nadal doesn't win the slam.

Off of this, we could calculate your hating ratio= money you'd put on your hated player's loss / money you'de put on your favourite's win

Mine: 80/100= 80%

Not bad

$0

Tennis is less important than money.

Besides, I'm in uni now, so it's not like I have much money.

As much as they give me when they win.

I'd put 1000 euros for a certain victory of a claycourt mug at Wimbledon and then i'd go at a bookie and bet 10000 euros on him to win the trophy and become rich

Absolutely none. Haas will take the AO title anyway. In case he won´t (unlikely, I know), I know I can always count on LaLo to get the job done.

Re: How much money would you give for your fav's victory

I don't have a favorite. It's how I roll.

But for my least favorite I wouldn't pay anything because Mugbych and N/Adull both suck so they'll for sure lose anyway, no?

Oh Sheesh Y'all, 'Twas A Dream

Number of Times I've Cried Over Sucking at FITD: All but seven

W Houston and Samarkand Singles W Charlottesville W Lermontov W ATP Bastad W Bol Fut W Orleans (w/MathMul) W Cordenons (w/dinkulpus) Tashkent S&D (w/ Mr Brightside)

Re: How much money would you give for your fav's victory

this is retarded
if you're a real fan NONE. you're favorite player either has the will and talent to win or they don't. I can't even enjoy this retarded fantasy because if it were possible it would ruin tennis and make the result no fun. the whole fun of your favorite player winning a big tourament or match is that there is a lot of opposition and 'unknown'. the experience and enjoyment is in the nature that they will win some and lose some and that it's so unpredictable who will rise to the occasion

this thread is retarded, absolutely 0$$$$

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal
