W*nker Wednesday!

In honour of Jimbo and dbnumberone :haha: ...and the strangest day I have witnessed on MTF! :lol:

Anyway, I have no real leans for tomorrow at the moment. Ljubo is a must but his price is so small that he really isn't worth it.

Victor Hanescu to defeat Rafael Nadal at 8.000




Grab this one while you can get it folks, Nadal is suffering severe tendinitis in his knee and probably would not even step on court had the tournament not been Madrid. I have read several interviews in which Nadal has stated he will definitely show up for the match. Even if Nadal was not injured, I've seen that his indoor hard court record is worse than his grass court record and Hanescu's flat strokes might trouble Nadal on this court surface.




My wager: $50 on Hanescu




This is my only play for the day, just because all the other matches are iffy. There are some juicy odds on matches that are very tempting but I'm not going to touch them because the results could go either way.




Good values for:




Tommy Robredo over Carlos Moya at 2.230

I'd be careful with this one, Moya has come of a strong win over Volandri, however Robredo has reached the semi's of Vienna before falling to Ivan Ljubicic.

My prediction: Carlos Moya at 1.752




Radek Stepanek over Tim Henman at 2.220

This is very tempting because Henman fell to Stepanek in three sets last week, but he is also coming off an impressive win over Taylor Dent. This could go either way. The odds for Henman are not bad at 1.758

My Prediction: Radek Stepanek at 2.220




Jose Acasuso over Gaston Gaudio at 2.160

Gaston Gaudio is not exactly known to be an indoor monster, however Acasuso isn't either. I think this match can go either way as well.

My Prediction: Gaston Gaudio at 1.585




Karol Beck over Nikolay Davydenko at 2.590

Karol Beck has had Nikolay Davydenko's number over the past few years and has a surprisingly strong head to head against Davydenko. Who knows, I may have to put a last minute wager on this match

My Prediction: Karol Beck at 2.590




Matches that I would stay away from:

Ivo Karlovic 3.650 vs. Andy Roddick 1.351 – this match is as good as rolling a dice

Olivier Rochus 2.340 vs. Mario Ancic 1.694 – Rochus has a shot but Ancic is talented

Dominik Hrbaty 2.090 vs. Tommy Haas 1.840 – this is tempting but you never know with Haas

Please post some feedback and I would appreciate if anyone lets me know if this was helpful, if so I shall continue to do this.

excellent comments Grinder, thanks.

Like Beck X Ljubicic tonight. May have something on Karlovic who looked excellent last night, looks like it will a toss of coin match.

The rest look very difficult, some tricky match up's.

These were his results from last week in Stockholm.

def Eleskovic 7-6 7-6, rank #644, Tojo was unable to break his serve.
def Spadea 6-3 6-4, a guy who is 20-23 on the year.
lost to Srichaphan 6-2 1-6 4-6, a guy who is 32-30 on the year.

:rolleyes: You don't know much about Eleskovic, do you
Eleskovic is soon-to-be a force in tennis world. He was serving extremly good in that particular match against Tojo and Tojo was simply unable to break it. Tojo even said that he gave tips to Eleskovic prior to the match, and how he was regreting it later.

Eleskovic is the best junior in Sweden and should crack the top 100 in 1-2 years tops.

MK - Tojo is top 20, he should be able to break the serve of top 30 players, let alone top 1000.
