Re: Tricky Thursday

What has Roddick done lately? Lost to Andreev, lost to Benneteau (indoor), beat Gruel in three, beat Verdasco twice, and beat a couple of clay courters in Acasuso and Martin. I'm not convinced. Personally, I wouldn't touch Roddick as a favorite right now.

If this was 2-3 years ago, I would certify myself if I layed money on Ferrer over Roddick on HC

This is 2006, and Roddick is not even close to any sort of form. Add to that Ferrer as the ability to tear apart big servers with his quality returns (i refer you to the AO this year where he destroyed Ancic, one of the best returning performances I have seen in a while)

$3.20 is a bargain for a match that should be at evens at best, if not Ferrer being a slight favourite.

my, I didn't mean to stir up controversy, just a friendly differ on a bet...mainly I can't forget Ferrer losing to Voltchkov, or getting hammered by Kohlscreiber last week, or Schuettler & Aldi for that matter last year (these names are where I got the c'mon from), even though that's a while ago now. Also watched the Arod/Greul match & other than the 2nd set service blip, he played very well.
Gl to you BG, & as for anyone else, back it up w/ a posted bet on Ferrer!
& with that, I'm up way too late, see ya in 8 hrs or so

Re: Tricky Thursday

I likes Ferrer too! SF performance last year and solid ground game. Will be a tight one so value on Ferrer.

No guts, no glory!

Re: Tricky Thursday

I think Roddick will win but the value for a bet is definately with Ferrer

Re: Tricky Thursday

On every forum Ferrer is the play. That scares me.

I like ferrer too . If roddick gets through ,he will face fedex.

Re: Tricky Thursday

Ferrer (3.30) vs Roddick
Roddick to not win 2-0. (1.794)


Sharapova to not win 2-0. (2.78)
Golovin seems to step up her game playing the best players in the world. Kirilenko took a set off Sharapova, and I expect Golovin to do the same. Golovin beat Petrova in three sets, and took Mauresmo and Clijsters to three sets all within the last month or so. She has only be beaten in straight sets once all year.

Re: Tricky Thursday

Well ferrer is a fighter and he won't beat himself. Rod will have to make things happen. Ferrer's weak serve won't really be too much of a problem since Roddick's return is pretty weak itself.

No guts, no glory!
