What do you guys say about betting on the dogs tomorrow and raking it in? ;)

Wawrinka def Stepanek
Nadal def Calleri (okay - no dog!)
Mirnyi def Davydenko
Ferrero def Gaudio

Stan could beat a knackered Step. Mirnyi - he has been awesome so far and Kolya is beatable. However, I guess he will fall soon and we will all have backed him! Ferrero is locked 5/5 head to head with El Gato but he won their last meeting at DC in 2003 6/4 6/0 6/0!! In fact he has won his last 4 meetings on clay with Gaston and only lost to him once in that time in Cincinnati, and that was a close match. Gaston has only beaten J-C once on clay at ATP level. Okay they have both gone different ways since then but J-C is finding some good form and consistency and Gaudio has done nothing special on clay since his double-title-whammy in February.

Any thoughts?

the ukrainian plays today, time for a bit of payback, oh toothless one...

Single - Beast to beat Ukraine = $2.30

Gaudio to beat Ferrero - market not up for this one for me, but will take whatever I can get

good luck lads, i'm off to see beyonce knowles now in the city :hearts:

So far:

Only placed 2 bets...

Remember that teenager from last week? Richie Gasquet? this week, we have another sensational teenager having a good run beating some solid clay courters....Not impressed with Radek even with his 2 wins thus far....acasuso HAD NO BPS against this kid today.....NONE! Radek got broken more than 5 times today...WAWA is serving well this week and I don't see Radek beating this kid. Remember Gasquet playing Nadal in the semifinal? Well, this week, it'll be WAWA playing NADAL in this week's SEMIFINAL game....Odds are too good to pass up!

WAWA +169

2nd play is Gaudio over JCF. Don't be fooled with looking at BETO's ass-whoopin result from yesterday. It's quiet Simple, when JCF had bp opportunities, he took full advantage and converted on 5 out of 8 chances he had against BETO.....BETO also had 7 opportunites and only converted on 1......UR not going to win too many matches if you can't convert those kinda precious opportunities against Former RG champ....k, last 2 weeks....2 clay tourneys that JCF has entered....He got beaten by NADAL and CORIA...and today, he can add 1 more to that list.....NADAL, CORIA, and GAUDIO are top 3 clay courters thus far this yr in my book....

Gaudio is 15-2 winning 2 clay tourneys this yr....That's damn impressive. On the other hand, JCF's clay court lifetime record is 140-36, but last 2 yrs....it's only 14-6....I'll take Gaudio even if he's limping on one leg and is suffring from a high fever....

Gaudio -145 to da bank.....

No play on others matches yet.....

Good luck ladies....

Leaning towards: BEAST and MELZER....

Nice writeups guys ;) Keep it up!

I'm taking Wawrinka at $2.50 no question, and Gaudio to beat JCF.

I can see the Beast taking out Davy, but not sure if I'm going to play or not. He could very well win today, but his great run WILL come to an end soon... he's simply not talented enough to keep it going, and when it does, I don't wanna be involved!

Here's to today being like Wednesday :cool:

I like the Horna pick JMG :) I'll be on him as well.

As for Barca I like everyone else will be on Gaudio to win outright and in straight sets.

Nothing but easy double Roddick*Haas... And of course - GO MAX!!!!

Horna doesn't have any chances also Melzer, they are sooo poor last month, only easy draw make them come into quaters, so no surprises here, i suppose...

Fererro vs Gaudio ..... honestly speaking very tough to decide.... both are former Roland Garros champions and it will very much depend on whose form is better on today.....both play similar style long ...rallies .....so be prepared for another three hour affair.......... .... if force to put a wager on this ....i will go with Gaudio only because he beat one of the current hotties on clay yesterday Ferrer!

Gaudio and The Beast for me. I would stay away from Wawrinka as you never know with Radek. He's a big fighter.

They both break and get broken very easily..just look at Gaudio against Ferrer yesterday: 5 breaks in 7 games I believe.

Also Beto only converted 1 of MANY bp's he had against Ferrero..

Take it with low/medium stakes.

Why do people seem to think Horna will beat Roddick tonight?!

I can't see it

Other than that, playing Agassi over Grosjean, which looks like a done deal, and Haas over Melzer.

Think that Blake will beat Lapentti, but leaving that alone

Breaker
04-22-2005, 11:19 PM
