Dream Final Sunday

Odds are not out yet, but I'll take Federer to win tomorrow, even if he's not the underdog.

I watched both semis today and Federer looks better than Nadal right now.

Too many stupid UE by the spaniard and Federer will give everything to win tomorrow.

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!


*JOÃO SOUSA* *GASTÃO ELIAS* *FREDERICO GIL* *PEDRO SOUSA* *RUI MACHADO*

Re: Dream Final Sunday

Already have outrights on Nadal @2.3 and @2.150

Probably leave it as that unless Fed has some value than i'd hedge some of it since Fed looked too good and Nadal looked aweful.

No guts, no glory!

Re: Dream Final Sunday

fedex is priced at 1.847

Rafa @ 2.08

didn't think the odds on Fedex would be higher than 1.6

the odds just changed to 1.909 for Roger
and 2.00 for Rafa

Re: Dream Final Sunday

Gonna keep my two Nadal outrights @2.3 and 2.150 and not hedge a dime.

Fed has shown he can play on clay but he has NOT shown he can beat Nadal on clay! Theres a difference! Lets see what happens when Nadal gets that big forehand riding up Fed's backhand! Also this is best of 5 sets so favor goes to Nadal IMO.

Prediction Nadal 4-1.

Also, Nadal doesnt fear fed like the rest of the crowd. I beleive Fed fears Nadal though

No guts, no glory!

On the other hand I reckon you'd get some brilliant odds on 4-1 Nadal!

Re: Dream Final Sunday

Nadal for me.

Federer has played better tennis this week but I think Nadal's game will beat Federer's on the day. Good odds for Nadal as well. Also 3-1 head to head does mean something, possibly psychologically against Federer.

Re: Dream Final Sunday

Went with Nadal @ 2.1 OUTRIGHT before the SF - keeping it.

Fed may be playing great stuff but that counts for little if you can't beat a nemesis. He has only beaten Nadal once, and even then he had to recover from 0/2 sets and a break - and that was on hardcourts. Until Fed proves he can beat Nadal, and relatively comfortably, I will continue to bet against him. He will figure him out eventually, but as this match-up is on clay, I'd like to oppose him for a little bit longer

Good luck everyone!

Re: Dream Final Sunday

Still got my Nadal outright from the beginning at 2.45, not hedging it one bit especially with the ridiculous line having Federer the favorite.

Re: Dream Final Sunday

My gut tells me to go with FedEx! I have seen him play a couple of times this week and he really impressed me, while Nadal isn't at his best yet. It feels really strange to bet against Rafa on the dirt, but i am gonna do it tomorrow.
