A truly great passage to the final...but I don't think he will beat Gonzo for the title tbh. Gonzo has been incredible all week and if he serves well then he can get out of many tough situations. There is no doubting that Marcos has the talent to win but his serve is not all that strong and a single break in each set could prove decisive. I think the final will be really good, but experience should prevail.

I'm also liking Roddick to take out Monfils...it will be another tough match but A-Rod should be too strong in pretty much every department.

Not touching St. Pete final although it is more liekly that Tojo will win IMO.

99% certain of hitting the Roddick x Gonzo double @ 1.62

There is nothing safe left! This time, I might bet small on Clijsters over Schiavone. Schiavone is in a good shape now, but Clijsters is going to prevail. She is a female Nadal. Also she has baked a bagel for Safina last night.

Roddick should win this time. But shouldn't he win last time, and the previous match, and the previous match??? LOL He has to prove himself a lot longer than this for me to put some money on him.

What odds is Clijsters offered at your bookie?!!! :eek: She is offered at 1.05 at Willhill...and you are going SAFE as a SINGLE?!!!

With all due respect, do you know much about tennis? Roddick is very consistent at the top level in these events and this match is the safer of the 3 for the men...

Petrova @ 2.25

Patty is injured. Either she doesn't show up/retire in the middle and you get your money back or she stays until the bitter end. Petrova is so hungry for her first title, she will have no mercy.

Cyprus boy has given me lots of money this week, but I feel that Gonzo might be too much even for him. Nonetheless...Baghdatis @ 3.25

I'm not on it because WTA burns me but that is the more likely outcome to the match if there is full play.

i'll prolly take gonzo x arod

and play a single on Petrova to take out Patty at 2.25

She beat Patty here 2 years ago so she likes the courts, pattty seems to be troubled by players who hit harder than she does so at these odds I like petrova to win her first tour title.

Patty is not injured. If you want to bet your money only because of this fact, better skip it.

I've heard it was only some kind of bruise, but nothing serious.

Yes, I've read it before. Ok, Yoel, just follow the true...
I mean, you can read it again, and see what Patty said, that's the most important.

But one thing is worth a shot here: how many times a player said "yeah, I had a lot of pain, but I still played"...then a cappers likes us have read it in the interview, and then, layed him that he/she will not win, but in the next day, he/she win it comfortably.

I just don't like this shitty news on some sites, and don't believe in them.
You know, we're not living in a dreamland....it's a real world - people gossips, and lies...

I didn't watch this match, and if I didn't, I can't tell you what happened, but this news are useless...This will be Patty's decision to play or not, cuz only she knows well is it serious. You can also "value" this when you was able to watch it.
She's already qualified to LA, but it's a final....

That's my thoughts only, sorry if I misleaded you, ad wish you luck for tomorrow :)

She only stands a chance if she keeps the level of the Peschke match.. If she starts throwing points around again like she did against Bammer, she'll get owned.

I personally think that the pressure of her first title and the pressure of qualifying for the Masters will affect her to some extent.. On the other hand Schnyder is more reliable, in the last match she lost a week ago, Davenport was lucky not to lose a set.

I don't know the odds yet. I am still waiting for it. If you have 1.05, it will probably come out 1.03 here. However, it is still worth it though. I always like a single bet. To select just the 1 safest bet doesn't look attractive to you, but to me, it does. When it comes to real money, 3% interest for 1day is a pretty good deal. I am happy. :)

I am not an expert, but I am not a novice. If my comment upset you, sorry about that, but I have been burnt by him consistently in the past. So, in my opinion, he is not trustworthy at the moment. He has been defeated by Ginepri, Mathieu, Muller ( not to mention that I have been bet on him huge all these 3 matches :( ), but Daviscup was alright, and then, suprisingly lost his 1st match against Karlovic!

7-5, 6-3 against Ascione, ( Who is Ascione? )
7-6(5), 6-3 against Mahut, ( Who is Mahut? )
6-4, 6-4 against Ancic,( Ancic is not himself lately. he is on my little back list as well.)
6-4, 7-6(5) against Santoro ( I congratulate Roddick, this time. Still, the score is not impressive.)

Do you call this 'playing consistently at the top level' ? This result looks to me that he might lose the next match again! :D

6-1, 6-3, against Bychkova,
6-2, 6-0, against Sprem,
6-2, 6-3, against Schruff,
6-0, 6-1, against Safina,

This result, I would classify as 'playing consistently at the top level'. However, I still have a doubt..... Call me a chicken. :wavey:

Regarding Petrova, motivation could be pretty key in this match, I think. Every player has motivation in a final, but did you see how many times Petrova pumped her fist during the second set, even on non-gps? She is starving for a title, and she looked VERY solid yesterday, serving extremely well and hitting great ground strokes - and when she was down 0-30 in a service game in the second, she saved the moment very effectively. Everybody talks about Petrova's mental problems. Well, I didnt see a fraction of them yesterday, instead I saw a very focused and determined player.

She looked in the zone, and we all know how Patty can choke. The potential "injury/blemish" disregarded, I see huge trading value at Betfair in Petrova.

PS: Bad Gambler, having been away traveling, let me take the opportunity to give you immense credit for the Spadea to bt Ljubo call and some credit for the PHM call. I sent you a thought from the air plane, hoping that you had played the parlay at a 1 ball bookie :worship:

10-30-2005, 09:10 AM
You need a very agressive backcourt and net player to beat Schnyder, and Petrova isn't one of them.

Of course you haven't upset me and I didn't mean offence ;) :hug: I may know a fair bit about tennis but I'm no expert at betting either. If you are happy with 3cents for every dollar then go for it! :yeah: However, a word of caution - if you consistently hit bets like that then for every 6 of them 1 will lose and you will be back to square 1.

Ascione and Mahut are French journeymen but on a fast surface they are most comfortable. Roddick was never going to win convincingly. Ancic was a great scoreline. Santoro also - he is incredibly awkward to play, particularly if you are a 1-dimensional player.

Ginepri, Mathieu, Muller and Karlovic have games which can hurt him and yes, on a very good day they can beat him. I agree that in their respective contexts I didn't expect either result...but shit happens. As for Karlovic, NEVER bet against him on a very fast surface unless he is playing an exceptional returner ;)

Clijsters winning for the loss of 2 games means little. There are only about 4 players on the WTA Tour who can actually play.

Guys, just to let you know that there's some mistake at Will Hill right now.

Although the Kiefer Tojo match has started, they have it listed to start at 1pm GMT and hence you can still bet on it at pre-match 1.90 1.80 odds.

Worth a shot - worst that happens is you get your stake back ;)

Horatio Caine
10-30-2005, 12:01 PM
If Willhill can make elementary mistakes like that then they can obviously afford it...

Taken Tojo @ 1.80 when 5/3 up 1st set.

...and Willhill have fixed maximum stake of 0 on many of my attempted plays in the past so i don't feel too guilty about it tbh :mad:

on another note, you should stop following Jotabe - that guy isn't all he's cracked up to be.

Look at his ROI, at the start of the week it was 7.70% - only marginally better than the banks, and with a lot more risk. You could find a nice investment fund that returns better than his tips.

He has picked 10 winners from his past 34 tips - does that really inspire confidence?

and Kiwi just lost his 9th final in a row, 5 years since he won a tourney in Hong Kong..
