risky, last week it was tight already and Davydenko might have a bit more confidence this time round after finally winning a match.

I'm thinking about Zabaleta and Rochus. Might also go for an upset against Federer, although only at extremely high odds.

[QUOTE]

I dont know if it was so much close as it was costa losing focus and just tanking the 2nd set. Costa looks to be in solid form, anywhere but the dirt and im avoiding this bet but here I like his chances. To be sure tho i'd have to see the odds and I havent seen them up yet.

It will be equal odds, 1.80-1.80, imo.

I made my decision. I'm on:

Rochus, Hanescu, Ancic, Volandri, Gasquet

Beto, Zabaleta, Gonzo(best bet), Coria, Puerta, and Gaudio look good.

The X-man might surpise us all.

04-13-2005, 12:04 AM
I made my decision. I'm on:

Rochus, Hanescu, Ancic, Volandri, Gasquet

I would have to disagree on:

Rochus( Ljubo was tired, no fire in him)
Ancic( won against out of form Guga)
Pipo( unpredictable and playing against Canas, a smart lad)

Anyway I wish you best of luck :wavey:

Not made keen on those dude... liking Rochus, but I'd go against you on Ancic and Volandri.

Anyway, good luck if you decide to stick with them :)

1. Rochus is fresh now, he is a strong fav against Berdych, imo.

2. It will be a close game imo, Mario has chance, it's a good value bet I think.

3. As you said, Pippo is unpredictable. 2.35 is too good to refuse.

No....but reading the transcript of todays play on MTF....it seemed he was going for broke with his shots + he kinda tanked the 2nd set.

However the rate of recovery of these Argies is legendary :p

In this case I would have backed Canas, Coria, Nadal, Gonzo and Gaudio against "tired" Puerta, but certainy NOT Mayer to beat Puerta. Puerta is a big fighter and i really don't think he's tired. Just look at Ljubo earlier this season, he was playing something like 4 tournies in a row. Mayer hasn't really shown anything on clay this season compared to Puerta's impressive wins last week.

After a closer look at Tomas' last round match against Horna, I remember that Luis was up 4-1 in third set.

The reason why I'm not so sure about Rochus is mainly because of him being defeated by Guga but also because of his record on clay. Having said that I'm leaning towards Rochus but i just can't trust him. So i will prolly just stay away. If you have already taken Rochus, then good luck :)

:wavey:

My bookie is late, so I'll just give my probable plays without the actual odds.

Beto, Gaston, Ferrer, Coria and Zaba (parlay). This should be very safe.

Gonzo, Puerta, Canas (parlay).

True MK...Mayer got Bageled by Monaco, who himself got his ass handed to him by Puerta.

Canas to beat Volandri ... great win for Willy against Andreev...he will be mentally too strong for Volandri
Beto to beat Lisnard ... time to say good bye jean rene
JCF to beat Novak... time for JCF to get his groove back on clay...
Gonzo over Ancic ... Gonzos powerful forehand will be too much to handle for Mario
Gaudio over Kiefer....LOL peace out KIWI .. you re playing against one of the greatest on clay ...

cos all the cash is on davydenko - this is how bookies work...
odd though, cos everybody here is on costa. I reckon, its a 50/50 match - whatever happens on the day. You actually can't predict some matches.
