Small prize money, small tournament, all the ingredients for some *surprising* results and Marco did not let the public down ;-)...I spoke to a local who told me that their local bookmaker was constantly reducing the odds on Ghedin due to people backing him. The closing odds were 1.4 for Chiudinelli which for those who don't know is extremely unusual and very big odds because you'd expect Chiudinelli to beat Ghedin comfortably 9 times out of 10. Ghedin went from 4.00 to 3.50 to 3.35 to 3.30 to 3.15 to 3.05 to 2.80. Consistent money going on Ghedin pre-match. And Chiudinelli led 4-1* in the final set too, which makes this even more of a joke.
This might and might not be true.
Ghedin is on those player's that makes living only on one type of surface.
Had some nice wins against player's like Bachinger, Greul, Niland.
Chudinelli is overrated mug, who got stuck with rankings where he actually belongs to.
He lost to Zang Z, just a few days ago in straights!
Beleive or not, but people were backing Ghedin on numerous different places (including myself)
that's how odd went down in general.
Now, obviosly you lost money betting on Marco and it seems uneccaptable, because he was 4-1 up in 3rd set.
How about myself loosing money on Nalbandian who was also 4-1 up in 3rd set against Seppi
