A Couple of Good Chances

I Think for a decent chance of an upset is Warwinka to beat Rusedski at 7/4, ive read reports saying the courts are playing quite slow, Given fact Rusedski is playing well but Warwinka is a dangerous up and coming player and did well in the Qualys!!!!

An absolute cert has to be Beck to beat Okun at 2/5 this is defintly a put your house on it job no doubt, and i also agree with the majority of you with Hrbaty at 5/4 to beat Henman well overpriced this is defintly at least a 50/50 match.

my selections

small treble on hrbaty - warwinka - beck

nice double on hrbaty - beck

and a single on warwinka

what do you think??

Re: A Couple of Good Chances

okun beat beck on hard court last year and favours hard courts, also been playing a few challengers and doing not bad so i dont think 2/5 on beck is all that great.

agree about hrbaty although i still think henman is slight favourite, hrbaty prefers it slower and henman did beat him easily at last yrs us open. backed hrbaty to start with, hopefully if he gets an early break or 1st set might trade it in for a guarentee of a small profit since henman often does come back from a set down.

wawarinka could upset rusedski but this surface definetly favours rusedski and it seems the bookies think there could be an upset otherwise wawarinka would be much higher...this doesn't tempt me but i do agree it could be an upset.

best bets for me are ljubicic to beat dent, dent is so inconsistent and although it could be a serving fest ljubicic clearly has the better ground strokes. no way for me is dent the favourite.

i also like chela over nalbandian since chela has been playing well on hardcourts recently and leads in the head to head.

horna over puerta!!!! puerta hasn't a clue off clay courts (even been losing on them recently) and horna despite being s.american seems at his best on hards.
