Re: Wednesday at RG

my pleasure

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

Re: Wednesday at RG

Last post of the day, promise. Decided I'm not going to include Henman in any large bets, he's Henman after all.

£50 on Kiefer/Berdych/Schnyder to double my money and cover the above craziness.

Re: Wednesday at RG

Davydenko/Acasuso/Ferrero/Grosjean parlay

All should win in straight sets, no problems.

Will probably take Henman over Tursunov. Henman played well against Carlsen. And we know what Dimitry thinks of the clay! He beat a depleated Novak in the first round. I wouldn't read too much into the victory.

Leans on Berdych/Lapentti.

Re: Wednesday at RG



I'm liking the conversations between Skywalker and Balloon

Rooney - good luck mate! I hope Henman doesn't appear often in those plays - I don't entirely trust him tomorrow

Elroyf - Acasuso should smash Dlouhy ( ); Berdych should take out Volandri

Henman is the better clay court player but Tursunov finds Henman's game nice to deal with. Ironically, I feel that Henman has a better chance to beat Dima on the fastest surface possible.

Moya should take out Youzhny without too many problems.

Possible Moya x Almagro x Berdych x Acasuso @ 2.97

Re: Wednesday at RG

OK I lied, last post.

Jez, I've invested £18 more covering the Henman/Mirnyi matches. Think the big man is also not to be trusted. The best of the French Open is over IMO so although I'm making one last effort to make a decent amount, hoping either Gasquet or Sarreta can help, I'll bow out gracefully with £350ish profit if I break even with my cautious £50 treble. (Unless something really appeals later on in the tournament..)

Re: Wednesday at RG

Yes, we all know Dima's opinions on clay, but this is a Grand Slam. Though I wasn't surprised he beat Novak, I was surprised at how easily he thrashed him in straight sets. I was expecting maybe a 4 or 5 set win for Dima as Novak faded. He seems to be more focused at the big event, and he is a far better player than Carlsen is.

Good luck to you mate...hope you get profit

Not sure I agree with your thought that the best of the French has been and gone though...it should get easier to pick out matches now and the prices should get better
