Re: Funny Friday

Tursunov over Henman (2.24, Betfair)
I think Tursunov is overpriced here. He should be the same odds on Henman at worst. It is just Henman hype! The h2h is 3-0 and I have seen all those matches, each time Tursunov overpowering Henman. Henman has not convinced me so far at Queen's and I have seen all of his matches. He was very unconvincing against Mahut, and a better player will punish him ie Tursunov, who has been solid, if not spectacular.

Hewitt over Nadal (1.70, Betfair)
Overpriced again. Verdasco should probably have beaten Nadal, who was on the ropes for a lot of the match. Hewitt was a match for Nadal on clay, no contest here in my opinion. Clear win for Hewitt. Nadal is not bad on grass, but Hewitt is top 5 I reckon.

You haven't been convinced by Tim this week? You must be hard to please. But I agree that Henman's game is a good match for Tursunov

Re: Funny Friday

Bet to win a unit on Hewitt, based on Nadal being taken to tbs by 2 players much inferior to Hewitt on this surface
GL all

Re: Funny Friday

im not sure if they all play tomorrow or not but I have vliegen as the last piece of a parlay from matches on thursday.

Also took Berdych x Haas x Blake @ 4.5

Cant see any of them losing but then I didnt see Ljubi losing to Monf today so anything can happen

RIP Luc Bourdon

Re: Funny Friday

I would think Monfils has a chance to beat Blake today. The Frenchman has been very solid in his first three matches, winning his serves with minimum effort and outplaying his opponents in the long rallies. Blake has to either serve extremely well today, which he hasn't been doing for some time now, or to return very well for two sets, which is also a high task for him. In other words, I reckon 60% or more of the long rallies would go to Monfils, so James has to win points quickly putting pressure on Gael either with his serve or his return. Judging on his current form, he shouldn't be able to do that consistently for more than one set.

Re: Funny Friday

Going with all 12 favourites for a very small amount.

Haas x Blake x Roodick x Hewitt x Henman x Bartoli x Likhovtseva x Zvonareva x Berdych x Federer x Vliegen x Sharapova

Other bets also..

Re: Funny Friday

I can't go against Rafa no matter what and @2.1 looks good in my eyes, the same goes for Dima. I still remember, how much I lost last year on Henman's friday-Queens-performance!Also James is playable!

Re: Funny Friday

Bartoli is value over Tu in my eyes, Tu has been lucky to get thus far, and I can't remember the last time she won 3 matches in a row in a WTA tournament , and I follow WTA for 4-5 years now.
Bartoli is not exactly trustworthy but she's still a class above and the odds are pretty juicy.

I agree with you Jez, Henman did look good this week but that's no guarantee that he's going to take out Tursunov. BTW, do you remember what were the circumstances when he lost to Tursunov last year in Wimbledon ? Was his back acting on him or something ?
