Tomorrow's Quarter Finals:

Gaudio vs Nadal

Volandri vs Ferrero

Federer vs Gasquet

Coria vs Ferrer

Looks quite tough to find any value tomorrow, apart from in the first two matches listed above, or unless you see an upset of Fedex or Coria (which I personally don't).

Gaudio vs Nadal really is a tough one to call, and not sure if I'm even going to play this one. And, I think Ferrero will take out Volandri, although it could well be a close match.

Will be back later with my plays...

Nadal and Ferrero for me.

I watched Gaudio play Kiefer, he's not in top form, kept losing his serve.

Thing about Gaston is that He'll match his opponent's intensity and over-plays it when it's time to shift the gear....Can't go against mr. Defending French Open Champ....Even if I lose this bet tomorrow, I have a strong feeling about this match....

GL to ya! :)

Just put 30 dollars on Richie Gasquet...LOL....

30 to win over 310 dollas.....

Richie's won 15 consecutive clay court matches....This is a long shot, especially going against Mr. Tennis god.... 30 dollars is a chump change and I'd kick myself if I didn't play one of my gut feeling plays.....LOL....

I would never think about going against FED, but on clay...I still think he can be beaten....Especially to a young talent who has nothing to lose, but giving all his got against #1 player in the world....

- Richie's 1st serves are clocking at over 206-208 kph....
- blister forehands...
- nice footwork....
- won last 2 clay tourneys he entered....

enough reason for me to lay chump change on Richie....

Let's go RICHIE! now, who's brave enough to play this one with me? LOL.....

happy i like your thinking....

singles as follows:

Gaudio to beat Nadal - $2.00, bookies continually are not giving the defending RG champ and the best dirtballer over the last 12 months any respect

Gasquet to beat Federer - $9 - worth a shot, especially the struggles that fed endured last match against speedy

c'mon, vamos, allezzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BG,

why is everyone on JCF tomorrow? All Volandri did was beating CANAS and Puerta....

I'm still not buying JCF winning against Volandri tomorrow....Marat's a headcase (Unless it's one of the majors, he doesn't show up to play 100%)...Beating Oldman Jiri wasn't that impressive either....This is JCF's 1st clay tourney this yr and I think his winning Train stops tomorrow against RED HOt PIPPO!!!!! PIPPO's played 80% of his matches on clay this yr.......ODD Makers are out of their mind, imo.....

Funny because its soo true!!

I'm going to have a small wager on Volandri - hope he isn't out of gas and those injury timeouts were just underhanded tactics to throw puerta. JCF's form isn't that impressive in my books, and the $4+ for Volandri is too good to pass up

04-15-2005, 07:58 AM
Hi guys, :wavey:

After a less than impressive Thursday (thanks to Puerta ;) ), here's hoping that a much more profitable day awaits... :)

Can't believe the odds on Volandri at $4! Surely value over Ferrero at $1.33, and therefore worth a wager in my opinion. The guy is playing great tennis, and although Ferrero is too, these odds should be much closer together.

Nadal vs Gaudio... I'm not going to go against the grain like a few of you here. I'm on Nadal. But it will be a close game, and will also have a smaller bet on Nadal 2-1.

Coria vs Ferrer... definite pass. Even Coria 2-0 sets is at 1.25. Simply not worth it.

And I can't help having a bit on Gasquet to shock the big man. I'm not going to repeat what somebody else has already written above, but they're the reasons. Worth a shot at such long odds.

No doubles etc. for me today... all singles:

Volandri, Nadal and Gasquet!!

adk
04-15-2005, 08:20 AM
Ah shit... just went to place my Nadal over Gaudio bet, and started to have second thoughts!

It's so close, I'm not that confident. Might not go that big on him... just back him small so that I can root for him when watching the game.

Volandri and Ferrero's odds have just moved EVEN further apart... Ferrero now at $1.25 in my book, which is so slim.

adk
04-15-2005, 08:31 AM
Kk... gonna wait and see how the other plays go, and then back accordingly.

Out for the day now... will be back to see nadal gaudio at 4pm BST.

Good Luck!!! (C'mon Gasquet!)

Taking Gaudio as well, last match against Nadal was a right topsy-turvy WTA affair 0-6, 6-0, 6-1 :lol:

I see Federer and Coria winning their matches quite easily so will not touch

Ferrero vs Volandri....tempted by Pipo...may play this live

Hurry up to bet on Nadal before the odds drop to 1.08
I'm wondering why they are droping, but it's maybe because Nadal didnt lose to Andreev last week, or maybe cause he didnt lose to Gaudio in all their prev. meetings? :confused:
I hope someone puts 1 zillion on Gaudio, he wins and the bookies learn. :lol:

I'm on Nadal and Pipo.

Nadal - Only dropped 3 of his games on his serve in 3 matches while Gaudio was broken by an injured Kiwi something like 100000 times. All hail the kid :p

Volandri - The man who took out Canas and Puerta gainst not in form Ferrero. I just couldn't resist the odds.

Just played 2 Womens' Matches:

Davenport over JHH....Davenport on FIRE!!! Winning last week's Tourney on clay and she'll prob win it again this week as well.....Pretty good odds so, I just grabbed it.....


Petrova over Tati Golovin....WHY IS PETROVA an UNDERDAWG today????
Damn, I hate going against bootiful girls....But, Petrova's in terrific form and hitting her serves well now....When her 1st serves goes in....She wins ALOT of pts....Tati's probably a fave today cuz of her win over Venus, but Venus self destructed in that match....You can't win a match if ur hitting over 50 unforced errors....

My 2 WTA matches are: DAVENPORT & PETROVA.......

good luck pplz....

Playing Gaudio, but mainly because I can't see any value in how far the odds have fallen on Nadal, at around $1.61.

Not that big though, because it's going to be close... and something deep down is saying Nadal.

Will probably be betting-in-running.

Good luck whoever you've backed

Gas is in great form. This doesn't however mean that you should be fooled by his win today against Federer. Federer should have been knocked out by Gonzo..

I have money riding on Wiz -4.5 tonight tho......I couldn't afford to go see them tonight :( tickets were going for 350 a pop for decent seats in MCI tonight....

Cleveland is horrific on the road....Lebron asking to be traded lately....Big Z is still suffering from his dislocated finger.....

Bottom line: Gilbert Arenas will penetrate and score at least 25 tonight....Antawn Jamison and Hughes will put up about 20 each....Others will play their roles and bam! Wizs to an easy victory at home.....(27-12 at home this season)
