Roland Garros - Tues 25th - DAY 2

Everybody is saying that PHM is 'the pick of the round' and 'such a great bet', but I'm not so convinced.

Lopez has won both of their clay court meetings, and PHM has gone out in the first round of TMS Monte Carlo, Rome and Hamburg, which is far from impressive.

His only half decent run on the dirt this year, was in Estoril, where he beat Novak and Cakl, before losing to an out-of-form Moya.

Lopez hasn't been much more impressive, but he did send Agassi packing in Hamburg, and beat Almagro and Montanes in Barca and Estoril respectively - two decent clay courters.

Can anybody put up a convincing argument why PHM is so good, apart from the home crowd?

Other than that, I like GGL over O Rochus, and Puerta over Ljubo.

Furthermore, Arthurs may represent some value over Melzer, as he has beaten him quite comfortably twice this year already - although that was on grass and hard courts, and Wayno isn't the greatest clay courter who has ever graced the earth.

Also, maybe Wawa over Massu for a bit of an upset?

Re: Roland Garros - Tues 25th - DAY 2

Was this "Lopez d. Gasquet 6-2 2-6 7-6" for real? Or wasn't it a serious match? I didn't see the result until yesterday.

However, I have PHM in a parlay with Volandri and Clement.

Re: Roland Garros - Tues 25th - DAY 2

I don't like most of the matches tomorrow.

I play the German loser girls to have a winning day:
Weingärtner x Grönefeld @2.30

Re: Roland Garros - Tues 25th - DAY 2

See my pick of the day. I wanted to start the thread and call it Paul-Henri Mathieu Tuesday

Well anyway, so much money is going on PHM that I don't know how much else I'd be able to handle.

But I've parlayed Puerta x GGL at odds of 3.60

And parlayed Saretta x Guga x Blake x Haas at odds of 4.25.

But the serious, serious bucks are on the mighty PHM. Keep up your great record for me you little beauty

Good luck all, and get on PHM if you want to make some £££ $$$

Re: Roland Garros - Tues 25th - DAY 2

yeah mathieu on paper looks good but i wouldnt go as far as saying he should be a huge play - if anything lopez\'s dirt form over the last month is more impressive, which says it all

Yeah I'll be pulling a sickie. Seeing as it would take about 5 months working at this placement to earn the amount I'm staking on PHM I don't think I could bear not to be following scores. I'm s******g it already.

Latest rankings update....Christophe Rochus ends Carlos Moya's 87 week stay at top spot of the "Lets mess up Frenchie's bets". Having backed his opponent 5 times in the last 2 weeks and lost every time, Frenchie swallows his pride and backs Rochus, who then proceeds to lose against Melzer and Behrend costing him an absolute packet. Carlos Moya drops to the number 2 spot but is comfortably there and not really being challenged due to a mass of points built up over the years, with Mariano Puerta a steady no.3 after some recent efforts against Melzer and Mantilla. Agustin Calleri drops to no.4 as virtue of not having played recently, although once he returns from injury I can see him climbing back up the rankings. Fernando Verdasco is a new entry at no.5, having been on the brink of the top 5 for a while, he cemented his place in there with an outstanding collapse from 2 sets to 0 up against the clay court genius that is Robin Soderling.
