MistaFlava's 2009 ATP Tennis Betting Record: 44-31 (+$9544.00)
***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 completely lost all my composure as a gambler last week and it was a disaster. I lost all my profits for the year and pretty much forgot who I was a gambler. My investors are not happy but those who have been with me for a long time know what I can do and they will continue to follow until I really fall off. Anyways, time to get some of that back. 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.
At least I'm honest. Most people around here don't keep a record and that's just ridiculous. But whatever, to each his own.
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 Rotterdam - Round of 16
Mario Ancic 3.30 over Gilles Simon ($1000 to win $2300)
Gael Monfils 1.36 over Michael Llodra ($3000 to win $1080)
Dmitry Tursunov 3.75 over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ($1000 to win $2750)
ATP Costa Do Sauipe - Quarter Finals
Juan Carlos Ferrero 1.50 over Thomaz Bellucci ($2000 to win $1000)
So I went against JFC in the first round of this tournament but I have turned things around and have decided to back him in this match. What can I say? Bellucci is getting decent odds in this match only because he is a local boy and the oddsmakers want to give you some of that false hope that he might actually be ready and willing to win this match against the former world #1 player. The two players have never met each other on any surface but I did see some repeats of the matches on TV late last night (only parts of round 1 matches) and it looks like the Spaniard is on the comeback trail and his temporary ranking outside of the TOP 100 is just that...temporary...and he is about to return at an elite level of tennis. Of course that would include winning this match here tonight and the only thing that stands between him and a trip to the semi-finals is Belluci. Ferrero was a bit slow to start this tournament and he did struggle at times against a very experienced Albert Montanes but how can you not love the way he looked in his second round win over Machado where his second serve was on fire and his return game was superb. I have not seen him move like that in a very long time. I went against Bellucci in the first round of this tournament and that was a big mistake but I learned my lesson and now I am back to fade him because he is not about to win this match. JCF is too good with his return game on this stuff and Bellucci's second serve wasn't all that good in his win over Kubot in the Round of 16 in this tournament. This is kind of like last week...where all Bellucci had to do was face a good player or a decent player on this surface and he was gone like the wind. Same thing should happen in this match here today. I have to admit that Bellucci has been on absolute fire the last 12 months in challengers and other clay court events but the challenger level doesn't always prepare you for matches like this and when you play against a guy like JCF who has won more than 73% of his 240+ career matches on clay courts, you need more than some experience on the challenger tour to go with it. Ferrero is back in good form now and this is the time to continue backing him until his numbers say otherwise. Again I was too impressed with his second serve and his return game against Machado and although he might lose a set because of brain cramps, I don't see him losing the match. Ferrero was a finalist the last time he was here in 2007 and that is exactly where he is heading this time again. I don't mind this kid Bellucci but he is by no means ready to win this match and by no means good enough to win this match so my CASH MONEY GOES ON FERRERO TO WIN THIS BITCH!
