I love to bet on Ljubo, but....I still didn't overcome some painful memories.... Probably Federer, Nadal, Coria, Gaudio and Stepanek will understand my feelings. :o

'Never ever ever bet against Berdych.' That was my pricy lesson. :wavey:

no bet for me on the outcome of the match, got my outright bet pending on the croat and I have covered myself with the $3+ on berdman

i do however have an intersting bet for today though, might sound kind of crazy but here goes:

Ljubicic to win first set 6-3 $5.00
Ljubicic to win first set 6-4 $5.00

Ljubo has a happy knack of seeming to do just enough each set to win his matches, and more often that not over the past month he has been winning his matches with a break in each set.

Obviously the above two options is done with equal stakes :lol:

good luck

Any thoughts on the WTA ? Mauresmo looked pretty good yesterday, and won the last meeting with Dementieva in straight sets.

I'm with Mauresmo today. As you said, she was really good yesterday defeating the red hot Vaidisova. She is fit again, her serve and backhand are very efficient. Moreover, she's aiming a third consecutive title in Philadelphia where she has never suffered a loss.
If you check the head to head indoors between the two girls, you can see that Mauresmo has won all the 4 meetings in straight sets.

2003 PARIS CARPET (I) S A. MAURESMO 6-0 6-0
2003 MOSCOW CARPET (I) S A. MAURESMO 6-4 6-1
2003 TOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS HARD (I) R1 A. MAURESMO 6-3 6-2
2005 FILDERSTADT HARD (I) S A. MAURESMO 6-3 6-4

Even if Dementieva's serve has improved, the surface is for Momo and with the way she played yesterday, I have full confidence in her.

GOOOOO MAURESMOOOOOO!!!! :yeah:

My only concern is that if Dementieva is in good form, she will start dominating Momo in the backcourt rallies, so the second set will be crucial.

How about Frazier vs Arvidsson ? Haven't seen any of them play, especially Frazier beating Dechy.

I hit the +5 games won on Berdych instead :( Just as well anyway, I would've been spewing if I had Berdych on the outright and had to watch him give up a 2-0 set lead.

:lol: all set scores were 6-3 or 6-4, pity ljubo couldn't achieve that in the first set

Broken a longstanding rule of mine not to bet on WTA (since US Open final win): -

Mauresmo @ 1.66.

She has won all her meetings comfortably with Dementieva and had a good win over Vaidisova last night. Dementieva will always struggle with that joke of a serve so Mauresmo should have chances at least. The surface suits her well...
nice one, Mauresmo 7-5 2-6 7-5, another typical dementieva 3-setter,
didnt u get anything on Amy Frazier over S.Arvidsson?
Rather good value on Frazier too, considering it was first final for Arvidsson.
