Wednesday 25th May, RG - Paul Henri Mathieu Appreciation Day

Sorry couldnt resist the thread title :p still revelling in his glorious victory.

Absolutely dismal matches tomorrow, far too many low price favourites.

Big single on crafty Felix Mantilla to beat Novak at 2.00 is the standout bet of the day I think, Felix is beginning to run into a bit of form on the dirt, a decent effort last week in St Polten and now off to a good start in Paris. Novak struggled in his opening match and I can see Felixs clay court expertees leading him to victory. Novaks dished out a few significant thrashings in the past, but he is nowhere near the level he was playing at in the early part of this decade. Throw the h2h out the window for this one.

Also a smaller single on Serra to beat Stepanek at 4.00, to be honest I dont know much about Serra having never seen him play, but he dished out a hell of a beating to Andrei Pavel in Round 1, and Stepanek struggled against the mighty Thai. Worth a small risk at that price.

25-05-2005 11:00 Xavier Malisse +10.5 1.50
25-05-2005 11:00 Rafael Nadal -10.5 2.20


What do you think?
I believe Malisse will take it with that handicap

25-05-2005 11:00 Nicolas Almagro +10.5 games 1.45
25-05-2005 11:00 Roger Federer -10.5 games 2.40



Almagaro wins with that handicap

I'd say Nadal can cover the handicap. I'd be confident in taking that on if my bookie offered that.

I agree, I think Almagro should keep it reasonably close with Roger though.

Lee won't beat Soderling, its a battle of the awful clay courters and I'd say Lee is worse.

Lee is 2-0 against Soderling and reached Round 3 last year. He's also the bigger fighter.

Lee's my bet of the day.

Interesting...I'm not on it, I just think Soderling will win so I wish you the best of luck. My "hard-earned bucks" are on Felix 'the Fighter' Mantilla :yeah:

Ancic*Moya*Federer*Nadal*Gaudio @ 1.45




i don't like the fact that you have parlayed so many low odd favourites to only get a return of $1.45 - not worth the effort in my opinion - i mean they should all win on paper but again risk/retun is poor

the cat pays $1.80-$1.90, better play IMO

Soderling to beat Lee @ 1.40 is a sure thing :yeah:

ignore the fact that they are low priced... @ 2 will you go for it?

nothing today is better then mighty Castano!!!

ps, carefull with Mantilla, it seems to me now that it is not so much value than i thought before...

Soderling on clay @ 1.4 :lol:
