Not a great card for Wednesday.

At first look I like:

Carlsen over Almagro
Acasuso over Horna

Gotta disagree with you my friend, Almagro to beat Carlsen at 2.25 looks a top bet :p

why is everyone on chucho?
imo horna has been in better form and he is a better hard court player than jose

Chucho - Horna is a 50-50 game. No play for me.

Right now only parlayed Kevin Kim X Ferrer X Peer @3.5

Kucera over flip might be an interesting little play. Somebody who gives flip nothing to work with and watching him trying to swat the hell out of it anyway. Neither seems to be in any form but flips game is more prone to being out of control.

not much in the way of good value out there on wednesday

Granville x Bartoli 1.76 only thing im really likin atm mite add Ferrer to it

If flip loses to Kucera, who is effectively semi retired, then you know it's time for him to give it away

Having said, going to see if I can dig up anything which will tell me how he is has been training and what exactly he has been doing over the past month as a lead up

Carlsen is playing really really badly at the mo. lost to gaudio who as we saw last night isn't good on the hard courts. Even though almagro doesn't have much hardcourt experience I wouldn't count him out.

Cheers

Okay, I'll go with Philipoussis @1.60

Good luck! I hope he has more courage than Ferrero.

Almagro x Hrbaty x Ferrer

I hope Carlsen beats Almagro, but I dont think he will, Carlsen plays without confidence at the moment it seems...

Playing this:

Poo * ferrer * ivanovic * bartoli @ $3.00

Bartoli is in awsome form atm and won in straight sets last time against Perry.

Ivanovic beat Vento Kabchi 6-0, 6-1 last time

Ferrer playing solid tennis...I am a bit worried abt tis one but sticking wit it!

Poo should take care of Kucera on hard court, Kucera wud have been more of a threat to him on the grass

Good luck to everyone!!

All plays except Kim over Lammer look too risky for me. Agree the poo should win, but he's been all over the shop recently and might not be feeling too good about himself.

I'm going to take Kim over Lammer at 1.4 I think the chances of him winning are around 85% so it should be a value bet. Lammer has not beaten someone of kim's ranking on a hard court and Kim has not lost to someone with Lammers ranking on a hardcourt in over a year in atp matches.

Any opinions would be appreciated

Chucho has won the last 5 meetings between himself and Horna, and all in straight sets to boot, that's ownage.

However admitedly only one of the 5 have come in a non clay match, in cincy where he really did play out of his skin by serving brilliantly to take the win

Horna is the better hardcourter IMO, and over a best of 5 sets will the big man be able to sustain another similar serving performance, which I believe he will need to roll the peruvian

No bet for me, chucho is a fav of mine, so will just hope he wins.

I agree on this one. Lammer did well to qualify but had a relatively easy draw there. I wouldn't put too much on Kim, though, as anyone who manages to lose a set to Bogdanovic in a GS, is bound to be a bit unstable.

Exactly. It's very hard to understand. I've seen at least 5 different people say this. Has nobody been paying attention over the last six weeks?

Yoel and co.
08-31-2005, 10:03 AM
I've said it once, I'll say it again. Chucho-Horna is too close to call. Don't go there.

sy_iceman - Seppi hasn't done bad at all on HC so far - he beat Gambill and Tursunov last week. I'm not saying he will win today but with Hrbaty not exactly in great form either, I wouldn't put too much on this.

If it had to be said of either of them that "he is in good form", then it would be Hrbaty. Betting on Seppi to defeat him is just... to put it simply... a waste of money. It's almost bound to go the other way.

Not so many good picks today, so I´ll go with a little parlay:
Schiavone (will win Finnish Emma Laine) x Ivanovic (won clearly their last meeting) x Bartoli (in great form) x Ferrer (Calleri doesn`t take three sets from him) @ 2,51 (5units)

All of them are quite big favs and the odds are too low, but I´ll try it anyway.

hrbaty + ivanovic + bartoli + kim @ 2.6 , seems pretty solid

Yes!

Poo X Ivanovic V Bartoli is the way to go.

Or replace Poo with Ferrer. Turns out to be a good parlay.

Going with a single on Peer too.

MK special of the day:

Ivana Lisjak - Ekaterina Bychkova

Here we have a 2 youngsters matchup. Lisjak was born in 1987 and Bychkova in 1985. As most of us already know, Bychkova surprised us all by upsetting the defending US Open champ Svetlana Kuznetzova(6-3, 6-2). Lisjak on the other hand also made a big surprise by beating Emilie Loit in 3 sets.
Bychkova is the most experienced of those two and i see her coming through comfortably today as she has played more matches this year and is more fit than her croatian opponent.

5 units on Ekaterina Bychkova.

not much in the way of good value out there on wednesday

Kucera was money and flip awful. Only play of the day for me and a money maker if only every day went this smoothly
