i hope that i do not curse Safin Tuesday

Safin looks to good to be true at 1.72 against Andreev

Below are parts of a report from the Davis cup website

"Anyone who doubted whether Marat Safinwould ever rediscover his best form after a knee injury kept him off the tour for eight months last year should have seen his opening match in Russia’s Davis Cup by BNP Paribas quarter-final against France.

Safin played some of his best tennis since winning the Australian Open 15 months ago, to beat France’s Richard Gasquet76(4) 46 63 67(1) 61"

But who knows what his fate will be now that i am banking on him!

Andreev is no mug on dirt -in fact I would say he has more weapons to hurt an opponent on the surface than safino only because his footowrk is better

Lean on Andreev, will wait to see what the people do with the odds first before pulling the trigger

Unlike Andreev, Safin was playing on indoor carpet this weekend. Shoudn't he have problems to adapt himself to the dirt?

jezz..had assume that Russia played France on clay......what a bad selection of courts by the French to play indoors....no wonder the odds for Safin has now risen to 1.83.......... will keep bet on hold at the moment

Re: i hope that i do not curse Safin Tuesday

Another problem with the Russian love god is you always have to second guess his motivation - is he there to play tennis or to catch some rays? I would say there is a good chance it is the latter

Andreev in straight sets IMO

Re: i hope that i do not curse Safin Tuesday

Almagro seems like a pretty good value at 3.60 over JC Ferrero.

Taking:

Vik over Simon @1.91

If this one wins I might try to double up on Andreev.

No guts, no glory!

Re: i hope that i do not curse Safin Tuesday

Surely Andreev looks a good play against Saffin given the latter's lack of recent match practise on clay, coupled with Adreev's good recent form. Right now there's not a split hair between them in the betting ($1.85 each), but I've noticed the Russian seems to be under the odds quite a bit, perhaps on reputation..?

Re: i hope that i do not curse Safin Tuesday

I'm thinking Andreev might well win against Safin but finding it really hard to go against Marat knowing how good he can be and after watching him against Gasquet. I know that was on a totally different surface but Marat is good on clay and I'm sure he'll have had some practice time to adapt. Tricky one this is.......
