Well after taking a few days and trying to regroup from that motherfucker Tommy Robredo's bullshit, I am back and hopefully we can all put our heads together and find some winners. Here are my picks for today.



Dominik Hrbaty 1.79 over Greg Rusedski (10 Units)

I am going just as big on this one as I did on Robredo. It was probably stupid taking Tommy without looking at his tournament stats but in this case here, the Dominator is definitely the play. I was under the impression that Hrbaty is not a fan of playing in Canada but it seems times have changed.

Hrbaty has been serving amazingly this week. His first serve is hitting on average at 60.7% in the three matches he has played, which is good news because that piece of trash Rusedski is only winning 36.0% of his receiving shots. I expect Hrbaty to be too good for Rusedski with his serve and I don't see the Dominator being broken at all in this one.

Dominator has also been winning 44.3% of his receiving shots this week which is very good news considering Rusedski's serve has not been at it's best. Greg did well against Mario but it won't be good enough to beat the Dominator. Hrbaty has won 45.3% of his break point chances, which is pretty damn good. Rusedski just doesn't have what it takes to beat Hrbaty, regardless of his 3-0 previous record against the Dom.


Any thoughts?

Sure Greg my have the boomer but only thing is, his accuracy has been off this week and Dom has been good on return points. I see Rusedski having some success but not enough to beat Domer....GL

I guess it comes down to if Greg serve well and if he does he will fustrate Hrbaty who is better at ground level,i see Greg serve and volley more in this game and not long rally's that would more suit Dominic!!!GL aswell

Precisely. A good look at the stats of both players in the tournament prior to the match showed a slight edge in Rusedski's favor, that is, according to the way that I tend to read the stats. Rusedski had a significant edge in percentage of points on first serve, and I felt that this was what would most likely decide this one. My Mathieu X Rusedski parlay paid off! :D

Now for possibly the play of the day:

A parlay on Rusedski and Mathieu to progress into the final! The payoff on that will be fantastic (if Agassi progresses!)

Yeah, it's one hell of a long shot, but I'm not suggesting to put much money on it! The payoff doesn't demand it!

Any thoughts on my proposition?

i am just going to bet for the first round and MAY BE the second rounds of these small tournaments hereafter and only the opens i will go on and bet in on the 3rd 4rd rounds etc... Players and not taking these small tournaments seriously and we dunno when they take it seriously (Puerta - perfect example... got out in the first and the second rounds for the past three weeks and now this week he plays good)

I'm liking Agassi.

Nadal comes up against an opponent who loves this surface. Nadal will find it tough.
