It's rare but I bet against Berdych because Simon-Berdych met 2x and twice the winner was Simon
(AO 2006 on hard, Monte-Carlo 2006 on clay).
well, knowing the proverb "Never two without three" I will try with my bet to put a jinx on Gilles Simon, this is why I bet v$ 189 on Simon's victory (v$ 189 it's my exact vcash benefit for the first week of January)
If Simon is the winner, the ratio 5/2 is good and I'll receive v$ 472.50 as a consolation but... in the same time it means it's over for my fave Tomas Berdych in Sydney.
Of course, I 10'000x prefer that Berdych goes far in the tournament and I would be very happy to lose my v$ 189.
*Hey you get nothing for free, mate!*
