Thoughtful Thursday?

Well the fact that a thread hasn't been opened yet sums up the title as the coupon looks very difficult. Any thoughts?

Code:
1.14	David Nalbandian	V	Alberto Martin		5.00
1.61	Mario Ancic		V	Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo	2.20
1.57	Fernando Gonzalez	V	Tomas Berdych		2.25
1.03	Roger Federer		V	Radek Stepanek		10.00
1.20	Andy Roddick		V	Greg Rusedski		4.33
1.90	Nikolay Davydenko	V	Nicolas Almagro		1.80
1.80	Gael Monfils		V	Fabrice Santoro		1.90
1.02	Rafael Nadal		V	Tim Henman		11.00
I've taken the plunge with a risky one:

Almagro(1.80) x Roddick(1.20) @ 2.16

Good luck.

No worries...I actually edited it to include the lines so you're quite right . But yeah I think it's a tough coupon. I've gone with Almagro because of his recent form and Davydenko usually allows his opponent a chance so hopefully he can continuing being as ruthless as he's been in recent weeks.

Also took him outright @ 51.00 E/W at the start of the week and really want to see the Federer-Almagro showdown in the QF. It could really be building to the shock for Federer to send him to Hamburg early rather than seeing Federer-Nadal four times in succession with Nadal winning each.

Have to live in hope - eh?

To be honest both Davy or Almagro are going to trouble Federer, and some nice odds will be given to both

In fact I will go out on a limb and say Federer won't be playing on Sunday

Re: Thoughtful Thursday?

I quite like the idea of Berdych.

The only sure one (apart from Nadal and Federer!) is Roddick @ 1.20

Might stay away until the 1/4 finals.

You'll always get a good price against Federer but it being converted into a win is another thing . I'd take Almagro in his current form in a heartbeat and feel I'd have a chance but the 'Toothless Ukrainian?' He played as well as he could in last year's Hamburg SF against Federer and how about this year's Australian Open QF - the less said the better .

Re: Thoughtful Thursday?

Right now, I'll take Almagro against anyone besides Nadal on clay if the odds are 1.7+ or better.

I like the spirit - so who's it going to be to take out Federer then? Davydenko? Almagro? Nalbandian? Ramirez-Hidalgo? Or dodgy lasagna?

For anyone who has no idea take a look at this:

Re: Thoughtful Thursday?

Almagro and RRH look good.

No plays yet.

No guts, no glory!

Re: Thoughtful Thursday?

Going with my best friend and most admired player on the ATP today....

Nicky D to beat Almagro - $2.17

Small play on :

Berdych to beat Gonzo - $2.25 - only because it is an earlier match and i'm a degenerate

good luck
