Re: Tickle me Thursday

I'm tempted to ride the Baghdatis train until it derails, he's at +264 (3.640) against Nadal. Seems well worth at least a small play.

Re: Tickle me Thursday

Pretty sure I'm going to take

Srich over Nieminen unless something changes my mind.. but since it's a late match I'm gonna wait it out and see if the line goes up on him..

No guts, no glory!

Ya I was thinkin about that too but I don't like how Nadal "derailed" Grojean so easily.

Re: Tickle me Thursday

Yeah, but Marcos has a lot more firepower than Grosjean to try to somewhat keep Nadal on the run. I dunno, maybe I'm just letting my personal bias get in the way, but I think he's got a shot.

Line just dropped for Paradorn....

Re: Tickle me Thursday

The closer Jarkko/Paradorn gets to even, the more I want to jump on Jarkko.

Re: Tickle me Thursday

Punters coming for Srichaphan, Jarkko has eased out to ~$1.80.

Looks like a no bet for me, value in the Thai is long gone.

Re: Tickle me Thursday

Jarkko Niemenen (-128) vs Paradorn Srichaphan
The bets are pouring in for the Thai, but that is just lowering the odds for Jarkko and I'm sticking with him. The 3 set win over Nalbandian was impressive, but his serve should be on the WTA, it is that bad. Jarkko easily beat Safin in straight sets. The two met twice last year both on hard courts, and Jarkko prevailed both times. The first was a comfortable straight setter at the AO, the other was a three setter. Jarkko is 10-1 in his last 11 on hard, and I definitely give him the edge in this match.

Re: Tickle me Thursday

Only decent one today is Nieminen over Srichaphan - positive h2h record, Thai only 50/50 vs lefthanders, Nieminen's stunning form on hardcourts...looks nice. Not sure I'm confident enough to play though.

Andreev over Blake? Igor pretty solid yesterday despite being unspectacular apparently. Blake is hit and miss so Igor could benefit from that. Also narrowly lost last meeting.

Re: Tickle me Thursday

My thoughts are that baghdatis plays very well with big servers ! Nadal is the best player in ATP circuit from the base-line and I think he will win most runs. We also can see how baghdatis played with gaudio...first set really tight, but then gaston showed that he is in fact shit on hard! Nadal is better on hc from tournament to tournament. I don't think that Marcos has a chance! My main play will be Nieminen!
