Lightbulb OK, i am a Newbie to the tennis betting, but Should i go for it SERIOUSLY?

OK, i am newbie to tennis betting, i will admit it. But i have been doing it for last 6 month, just on paper, and i found out that i am pretty good at it. I am hitting about 88% of my picks. so i am thinking about going for it. What is your advice ? I also heard on the radio show that one of the tennis legends bets on tennis and he made $68,000 in past year, just on tennis bets. I think it was one of the Aussie Legends. Also, not sure if i should use a service that provides picks ? what do you think.?

Well, i am not looking to be a Millionare over night. That pro legend that bets on tennis made $60,000 in 1 year so i figure that is pretty good. what do you mean by small profit ?

if you bet only on 1.05-1.10 youll find it difficult to have a proper balance cos only one miss will cost you alot and 2-3 in a row and your confidence will start to shake

Betting on 1.01-1.1 favorites is stupid to say the least.

Ok lets just say Stephanek is -100 favorite against Olivier Rochus. then if you bet $500 then you would win $100, right ?

Ok so lets just say that i bet on Andy Murray on every single match he plays for the year. I should come out way ahead, right ?

Hardly. For every loss like that against Lu at the Olympics, you'll need some 10-20 wins at low odds.

OK, right now at USBET.com , Argentina and Spain are +150 on straight bets. it is like this If if Risk $100 on this bet, i will WIN $150 if either of these countries win next week in Davis cup. So if i bet $1000, then i will win $1500 which means i will win $500 net. Does that make sense ??? In my opinion, if i bet on Spain to win and risk $1000 then i will safely win $500 and that is a GOOD bet in my opinion. What do you think ????

There is NO way on God's Green earth that United States will beat Spain next week, it would be a biggest upset in history of tennis. so in my opinion, this bet is easy $500 in your pocket.
