Another boring Saturday

Not much to wager on..

JHH vs the Man Mauresmo

....

I think I might lay off bets for one night or just put a tiny wager on JHH. They're head to head 4-3 and split sets many times. Thinking this will be a coin flip even though the odd makers give Mauresmo a much higher payout.

Re: Another boring Saturday

I think Mauresmo at 2.75 is definately worth a bet....

JHH has been rather unimpressive thus far, I've seen most of her matches and she's got through most of them by fighting rather than quality tennis. Mauresmo has been a lot more impressive in her route to the final. We all know her choking abilities, but I fancy this could be her moment. She will be helped by the fact the roof is closed, the spin she gets on her groundies will be exagerrated and I fancy this could cause JHH some problems.

Re: Another boring Saturday

I bet to win a unit on the Bryans - they've just been rolling through the tourney & I followed the Paes/Damm match online - don't know which, but one of those dudes struggles to hold every service - I figure the Bryans will close out those opps much easier than the Polish duo Paes/Damm faced last time.
good luck to all

What are the odds for the Bryans?

Re: Another boring Saturday

Fair play to Justine Henin-Hardenne

Going with the experience here. Best player since Graf/Hingis.

We're thinking the same way today so you shouldn't be confident.

Hingis was never that good.

She just came along during a weak period in women's tennis.

Well, come on Freak - look at how Hingis matches up to the Williams sisters, Clijsters and Henin. They all flog the sh*te out of her.

If they were around earlier, Hingis would never have won a slam.

Hewitt had exactly the same fortune with his 2 slams - post-Sampras and pre-Federer.

Seles would have better filled the void after Graf began to diminish, but that wasn't to be unfortunately for her, and luckily for Hingis.
