Semi final Thursday

Dementieva 2-0 @2.90
Federer 3-0 @1.75
Zvonareva @1.70


Some value out there imo, another hot day 42! surly Safina will struggle, Dementieva can run all day so heat for her shouldn't really be a problem, hope the roof is open for some time

Re: Semi final Thursday

Got 2 so far..

Hanthucova/Sugiyama over Santangelo/Dechy @ $1.50
Kubot/Marach over Bupatti/Knowles @ $2.70

Adding....

Serena Williams over Dementieva @ $2.10 (12-2 in grand slam s/f plus this is her fave slam, last nights comeback from the dead will give her extra belief, not that she needs it, warrior this girl- you have to back someone of williams calibre at these odds.

Dementieva hasnt really beaten anyone special to get here, cibulkova was a big let down and there were glimpses yesterday of her old self, served quite a few df, navvaro missed 5 bps in one game which could of turned the match. Agreed her baseline game at the momment is second to none but she has a habit of losing to a william sister in grand slams, with serena at least you know what your gonna get, especially in grand slams, she wont go down easy.

roof will be closed + grand slam SF = rough times for dementieva

Yup! Serena has won every one of her Aussie Open's with the roof closed. I thought this was an outdoor Slam?

Re: Semi final Thursday

any value in the fighter Dinara? surely much, much tougher mentally than Zvon. And she's been there, done that in a slam semi which surely counts for a lot.

considering whether to hedge my outright on Serena. She's rode her luck last few matches but then she must be one of the mentally toughest athletes in sport and she often brings her best out of nowhere at this stage of a tournament. She was a big dog in her final few matches in 07.
