Upset-apalooza?

What the heck is up with all of these "upsets" at Indian Wells this year? I'm guessing it means the depth of pro tennis has become... deeper?

No, it is a vast conspiracy from the bookies to squeeze the money out of the poor, uninformed investors.

Re: Upset-apalooza?

I like the way you think. By the way, what were the odds on the Federer-Canas match?

I saw 32:1 for Canas winning before the match, factor in those who made trades during the match and those who have bet on the winner-take-all market for Roger and the bookies must have made a hell of a kill.

Re: Upset-apalooza?

It means that there is depth in men's tennis, some are playing badly, some just don't care. And also, some are already tired in March from travelling (Qatar, Australia, Europe, Dubai, United States...)

I sorta hope there's a bit of a return to normality today. Yesterday was kr-a-a-zy.

Probably PRO Mr Disney, his RR argument with allowing the favs to lose one match and still stay is as valid as it can be (that is, still BS IMO)


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.
