Normality returns on Saturday

Should be pretty straightforward as far as the semis are concerned, Troicki is perhaps dangerous but Ferrer, Tsonga and Ancic should beat their opponents relatively easy. Cilic will probably beat Troicki as well.
No clue about the ladies. Gonzo will surely make the final but I don't have a price yet.

Ferrer x Ancic x Tsonga treble @ 1.70

Re: Normality returns on Saturday

Simulation Module


Explanation: Alright so I have lost money like no other before this past week so it was time to come up with something new. I had an old excel program I used that would calculate match results based on stats, weather, injuries, stamina, media reports, individual matchups of skill versus skill and a few other things. Only thing is I don't have time to put it all together. So I created a TENNIS SIMULATOR. It took me about 5-6 hours to get it done tonight and it simulates matches and gives a probability of win or lose as well as you get to watch the match player against player. It's cool to watch how the matches turnout. I won't post stats or anything like that just yet...I will simply post the matches the simulator really liked:





PLAY #1 : Viktor Troiki 3.40 over Marin Cilic





I watched this match and Troicki was great with his first serve and he was great on Cilic's second serve. Marin had problems serving like he has most of this tournament and Troicki will take advantage of this. Troicki fed off the intense crowd factor and was hitting on all cylinders in this match. I changed the crowd level to high because it will be intense and again Cilic is going to pay for his mistakes in this match. BELIEVE IN THE SIMULATIONS!!!

No more plays today.

Man u really got chewed up something shocking this week, i feel for ya, it happens to me, ya on a bad run and couldnt pick a winner if Rafa was playin C.Rochus on clay, just begging for someone to throw ya a winner just to claw some cash back.

Ya just gotta walk away for a few days and ride it out, come back fresh and with a clear mind.

Re: Normality returns on Saturday

Mistaflava we all go through bad spells blowing a lot of money in the process. Only a very few actually are successful in making money on tennis. My suggestion is take a few weeks off and come back ready for the hardcourt masters events.

Posting about simulations and the like is all nonsensical, just take a break man.

Re: Normality returns on Saturday

Troicki(+1.5 sets) x Ancic @2.31

Cilic showed pure crap yesterday, and i should probably go for Troicki to win like Mistaflava, but after all the wrong picks i've made this week i'm scared shitless

Re: Normality returns on Saturday

Ho much is your bet Mistaflava?

Place your bets and take a chance now!
Just make sure the Odds and the Gods are on your side!


Suppose it is not that case there is a God. Then time is infinite, and you are an empirically finite collection of chemicals. Since time is infinite and your youness is finite, then you have had infinite occurrence, and infinite variation. Since you have been infinitely varied, you would have attained the ability to forward, or compile, your memories. Yet it is not the case you have infinite regression of memory from time immemorial.
Hence, God exists.

Re: Normality returns on Saturday

fed cup
PENNETTA over Mauresmo @2.30, 2 units

I would also get some of Troicki, just because in every other country of the world than Croatia odds would have been someting like 1.60 / 2.30 (to be genereous in Cilic favour)... but I'll skip this one, let's keep sexy Flavia

SUPPORT: Stepanek, Hanescu, Nalbandian, Malisse, Berdych, Dolgopolov, Lojda.
WOEFUL stuff: Roddick, Ram, De Bakker, Ward, Isner, Robredo, Granollers.


The respect: Lars Graf
The eye: Mohamed Layhani
The charisma: Carlos Bernardes
The voice: Kader Nouni + Steve Ullrich
