Okay - I got burned in the QF matches...and I need to make it up again!

I'm thinking an all Spanish final but the odds are so pitiful that I might leave all betting till next week. Nadal @ 1.07 and Ferrero @ 1.36. Not a lot you can do with those.

Any thoughts?

JCF and the kid to win in straight sets seems nice..other than that, I see nothing special in Barcelona.

Sorry dude :sad:

No fool... I honestly don't know how he lost to Grosjean on the clay. Would NEVER have guessed that. Blake is more understandable.

Now, get the hell on JCF (x Rafa) ;)

Hmm...what an awful day yesterday!!! 0/5 and would have been 0/7 had I backed Andre and James in my desperate state!

Not sure I want to back Ferrero - he is probably a little jaded and Toothless could nab him. The only surety is Nadal - but his odds are through the floor!

What does anyone think about Nadal X Medina G X Dechy = 1.46?

Medina Carrigues to beat Salerni - $1.40

Horatio Caine

After the horrors of yesterday...today is a new day!

I'm on Roddick x Grosjean x Nadal x Medina G @ 2.29.

I have good vibes of the lot of them. Rod is in good form and should beat Jurgen fairly comfortably. Grosjean thrashed Lapentti in Miami last month when he wasn't playing that well. After whipping Agassi it is fair to say that he has found some good form and he will be confident enough to beat Lapentti...besides he is the last man he wants to go to now before a final. Also, Lapentti may be playing well, but he just survived against Blake and he struggled through qualies so I'm hoping he is tired!

Who would bet against Nadal right now? Step should be on his last legs and behind that serve and volley he has NOTHING much to harm Rafa with. Finally, I'm risking it a little on Medina G but she has been steadily improving her ranking...whereas Salerni has been going the other way.

Mate I'd dissaude you from a 4 game parlay... chances are, one of Roddick, Grosjean and Medina will fall.

Maybe break it up a bit?

Like Roddick x Grosjean x Nadal etc

Ok so I took a little shot because i just post picks and no reasoning...

I am not the best at writing (essay , thought , whatever .. but here goes..)

Ok lets start off with some stats.. Sebastian is 7-1 against Lapentti, the only loss coming on carpet in 99 .. The last win coming a few weeks ago in miami ..(6-3, 6-4)

Lappenti's journy in getting here came with some decent wins..but i wouldnt say they were against any "special" clay courters..lappentti plays 53% of his matches on clay. Looking at the match facts i would say his best win was against a tired ZIB. Kim (20% clay) Blake(20% Clay- and a 14-16 record in 3 set TB's)

Sebastiens journy to the semis has deffinitly suprised me ! Though it looked like sebastian was serving and playing well I think Andre gave a way the match in frustration. Seb did have quite a few aces though.. so who knows how motivated andre was ..

Seb's foes here.. Phau (30% clay player and a lossing record) with a 3 set win ,Hernandez (98% clay 147-88 record) with a 3 set win, But what really sticks out in my mind..is sebs losses prior to this... GG in miami (6-2, 6-3), Ferrer in Indian wells (6-2,3-6,6-1), TJ & JJ in davis cup (clay) all these players many steps above a lapenti in my book..Also Seb has not done much traveling he lives in s florida ( a few miles form me actually) and has played all recent matches on US soil (since 3/13) lapenti playing @ 4x as many matches between mexico , bermuda, etc.. (all atp events started in as Q)

Well in summing up this is were lapentis' little run in HOUSTON ENDS..Grosjean the better player , better form , and deffintly gets the EDGE

SEBASTIEN GROSJEAN (USA) -220
880 to win 400

S.GROSJEAN WINS 1ST SET -188
188 to win 100

and a samll stake on..
S.GROSJEAN WINS 2-1 +355
