MistaFlava's 2009 ATP Tennis Betting Record: 31-19 (+$7504.00)
***I only wager on odds 1.35 or better and never do parlays
(If you wager exactly the amounts I wager on every match this season, I promise you make some crazy money)
I went a bit crazy yesterday but did end up calming down and am ready to get back on this track and provide some winners. Lost a few investors the last two weeks, they will be back I hope so my income is not as good. I know I can win large and I have nothing to prove to anyone. CANT NOOOOOBODY HOLD ME DOWN, OH NO! I won on Arizona +6.5 in the Super Bowl and finished 9-2 ATS in the NFL Playoffs. BAM! LIVIN LARGE IS GOOD! Learn it. Like I said before, if you follow me all season, you make big money, that's a promise guys. I am very busy with work, very busy with capping other sports and betting on tennis is something I do for fun on the side so don't hate the player bitches, hate the game. I'm sick and tired of all the idiots who run around on tennis forums claiming to be good because they go 10-0 betting on 1.15 favorites and parlaying 1.03 favorites by the dozen to make a couple hundred bucks.
All my wagering is done at Pinnacle. All the best this season and if you have a problem with me or my style, LICK MY NUTS!

ATP Zagreb - Round of 16
Viktor Troicki 2.50 over Ivan Ljubicic ($1500 to win $2250)
Well what can I say here? I cannot believe Troicki is being offered at these kinds of odds in this match because he has just as good a chance of beating the old man Ljubibitch as anyone else on this surface. Okay this is Zagreb and Ljubo has all his boyfriends in this city but have you guys not noticed that Troicki is Serbian and the intensity of this match is obviously going to be very high? These two players have met three times in the past and the last time they saw each other was at the indoor event in TMS Paris where Ljubicic had no problems getting rid of the kid in two sets. Well things have not changed all that much from that match but I think Troicki comes in here with more confidence this time around knowing he is the underdog and does not have to perform at the level of a favorite like he was asked to do in Paris (he was favored by almost the same odds but reversed). Everyone keeps talking about the indoor courts being Ljubo's specialty and how he is supposed to win on this stuff all the time but last time I checked he was 5-5 on the indoor courts over the last 12 months and Trociki was 8-5 during that same time span. I actually have the young Serb ranked better on this surface right now because he moves better and when he is on his game he can beat anyone. DOWN GOES THE BALD PIECE OF TRASH today...be ready guys. This could be a very good match and believe me Troicki has learned a lot since the first time these two guys met in October on this type of surface and we are going to see that right now. Ljubicic is so overrated and I'm sick of this clown already.
ATP Johannesburg - Round of 32 + 16
Marcel Granollers-Pujol 1.39 over Sebastien de Chaunac ($1500 to win $585)
Once again this is another great chance to fade a player I don't see winning and that player is the french fuckhead de Chaunac. First of all I can't stand his name and will never place a bet on this guy unless I have to (fading someone more horrendous than him). These two players have never met on the tennis courts and that doesn't surprise me. However, how can you not like the #51 player in the world to beat the #253 player in the world on a surface where neither guy really likes it and neither guy has proven in the past that they can win consistently? Nothing makes de Chaunac more comfortable on these courts than Granollers would be so the odds are very good and they won't get any better in this place so I am taking them while the oddsmakers offer them. What you have to understand here is that de Chaunac had to qualify to make this even and that was after going to the Australian Open, qualifying there and beating Steve Darcis (who obviously bet against himself) before losing to James Blake in the second round in straight sets. Before that the french guy had not played an ATP event since we last saw him in October at the Lyon even where he failed to make it out of the qualifiers. Who the hell let this baffoon into this tournament anyways? I just don't understand how these guys make it in? Pujol impressed me enough at the Australian Open despite getting blown out of his second round match against Andy Murray as he sent Gabashvili packing in the first round and did reach the semi-final of the ATP Chennai event to open his 2009 campaign. Not bad at all, he is a decent player who can win shitty matches like this one. I know some of you are going to have problems trusting a player that has won only 16 of his 43 lifetime matches on hard courts but believe me he is better than the frenchie and he proved in Chennai that he is a much better tennis player overall these days. de Chaunac does have experience playing on hard courts at the challenger level but his level of competition sucked donkey balls and if you don't believe me, all you have to know is that he lost to Thomas Zib in the first round of qualies at the 2008 US Open and that is as bad as it gets in this world of tennis. WOW WHAT THE HELL ARE ODDSMAKERS DOING? Time to cash in again on bad odds and stupid players.
Leonardo Mayer 2.48 over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez ($1000 to win $1480)
Not many people know anything about this kid Mayer but what I can tell you right now is that he is up and coming and it looks like he is here to make a splash in Johannesburg where the upsets have been rampant left and right and where just about anyone can win any match. These two guys are natural clay court players but they have to play this match on hardcourts and I definitely give the edge to the youngster. He is coming off an easy first round win over Sergio Roitman and was even more impressive a few weeks ago when he played in a hard court Challenger event in Salinas and ended up losing in the Semi-Final to a natural hard court player Michael Russell. I remember the Challenger event in the Bronx last August where he had no problems reaching the Final in that event and lost to Dlouhy in a blowout but it was expected. Garcia-Lopez on the other hand beat Phau in the first round but he has won only 9 of his 19 hard court matches over the last 12 months and this is not his surface. Mayer on the other hand, despite most of the matches being player in Challenger events, is 18-7 on the hard court surface over the last 12 months. This is a no brainer guys, this is going to be Mayer's best win ever on hard courts and he has a very beatable opponent in this match. This is a tough match for some of you to bet on because you don't know much about Mayer and don't know much about two spanish guys playing on hard courts but the odds are great, Mayer has shown some game and I am backing him here for sure.
Frederico Gil 2.32 over Rik de Voest ($1200 to win $1584)
Another upset for me here because this tournament, once again, has featured nothing but upsets, some of the bigger name players don't really give a shit about playing here and that's just the way things work in these tournaments. That actually slipped my mind for the first round yesterday and I am not going to make that mistake again. The only reason de Voest is so favoured in this match is because he is from South Africa but what the fuck does that mean? Either you can play tennis or you can suck balls and de Voest sucks balls. Frederic Gil is actually a decent player (well not really but de Voest just bothers me) and he is better on this surface than de Voest is that's for sure. The two players have never met in the past so this could be interesting. Gil had no problems beating that fuckin psycho Koellerer in the first round of this tourmanent and that's not too bad for a guy playing for the first time on hard courts since November of 2008. I remember Gil at the US Open where he lost in the first round to Chardy in four sets but that was not a good matchup for him and this is much better. Gil did win a hard court Challenger event last August in Istanbul where he beat Prpic, Peya, Muller, Stakhovsky and Dorsch in the Final. Not too bad at all and he is actually 10-4 the last 12 months when playing in a hard court tournament. de Voest despite being the local guy is very inconsistent with his game and even though he beat Navarro-Pastor in the opening round, he was the much better play on hard courts and unfortunately for him, that is not the case here for this match despite the fact that he has gone 23-15 on hard courts the last 12 months. He failed to qualify for the Australian Open, he made the main draw of the US Open but was bounced by some guy ranked #200 and he is not trustworthy at such odds and believe me I will make money going against the local boy in this match.
