Loving Safin over Davydenko right now. If it happened two times, it can happen a third time, too.

:lol: Beat me to the thread man ;)

To be honest...not liking much today at all.

I agree Safin should win but I have my reservations. Nothing else looks too tasty...might wait until Thursday when I can pound Dr. Ivo :rocker:

Liking Monfils over Portas, Muller over Lapentti and Kohlschrieber over Herynch.

Horatio Caine

Yeah you have actually read my mind Jaap - if I play any I'd play those.

But I really could see each of them going the other way.

Safin over Davydenko and Monfils over Portas look good to me!

Monfils has only beaten Sabau, Portas is a definite step up and could cause Monfils some trouble...

I'm liking Kohlschrieber over Hernych too.

Hey can someone tell me what Gremalmayr was paying yesterday against Coria? I was only looking at the WTA yesterday so didn't even review the mens prices. If anyone by chance has the Pinny price, that would be even better

Coria started at around 1.16 and moved to 1.24ish just before game time. So grem played around 6.5-6.9 is my guess

Gonna hit up GGL over Berlocq @1.55

The last time Berlocq killed someone 6-0, 6-0, he got killed 0-6, 0-6..
Well he just killed someone again 6-1, 6-0 so wonder how GGL will react.

1-2 WTD

Soderling over Vliegen - 1.74 (to win 1 unit)

The fast clay definitely favors Robin in this one, while Vliegen struggled at Barcelona (similar fast clay) and struggled in his 1st round match against Tipsarevic. Robin is playing good tennis on all surfaces and is coming off a good run at Monte Carlo. H2H is 2-0 in favor of Soderling, both on indoor hard though, Robin's specialty.

Vliegen has been impressive the last few months,while Soderling has been out for awhile n just got over the line,both those matches won you forgot to mention they were both in tough 3 sets and like you said theyre were both on Robin's fav surface,dont know how fit Robin is and if he could go the distance in a tough 3 setter aswell!!!See Kristof taking this one out but no bet,very tricky matchup imo!!!!

Agree Safin should take care of Donkey with no problemo!!!

Take back what i said about Marat,this game is for the Russian Mob!!Read a few info's and starting to like Donkey more now!!!Donkey was 2003 champion and is seeded 2 in this tournament!!!!But the main thing is Safin isnt clicking or confident yet after his long break,this could be a good time for Donkey to snatch one of him!!!Value is with Donkey but both players will put the stress levels up a notch with their minds going wondering here n there!!!

Just taking 1 pic n hopefully straight to the cashier!!!!Best bet 2day imo is Giles Muller!!!!

30 units on Giles Muller 1.68 over Nico Lapentti - Too good of form to ignore while Lapentti has just come out of the woods and could be still abit underdone by fitness,although i heard the guy is pretty fit!!!

Good luck - Other leans on Donkey 2.22/Vliegen 2.10/Special K 1.60/Monaco 1.53!!!!

Siding with your Muller selection here SF .. while Muller's recent results are nothing to get ecstatic about, like you said, Lapentti hasn't really done much lately and looks like a player well and truly on the decline (former world no.6, now ranked 126th)..

Any info on both players' records on clay ..?

Kohlschreiber @ 1.7

Did not face a break point in his last match against Ancic, and had plenty on Ancic's serve, just failed to convert. Will have stronger chance of converting on Hernych's serve.

:yeah:

Horatio Caine

Kohlschreiber to win easily over Hernych. Hernych was lucky to be matched up against a choker of an enormous proportions, and Kohlschreiber served incredibly against Ancic.

What's the reason for the confidence on Kohlschreiber ..? Recent results suggest it's a toss of the coin ..

1. Does well at home.
2. Can play reasonably well on clay - as can Hernych.
3. Hernych struggled against any category of player this year; Kohlschreiber is 4/0 vs 51-100 ranked players :lol:

Tossing up between Kohlschreiber (over Hernych) and Muller (over Lapentti) .. roughly same odds .. any thoughts..?

Horatio Caine
05-03-2006, 10:21 AM
They're both carrying the same risk....wouldnm't surprise me if both won or one of them lost. I don't think both will win so it really is a coin toss if you want to take the risk :lol:

Mr Flamboyant
05-03-2006, 10:25 AM
Think Muller looks the better play .. He's trounced Oliver Rochus 'two & love' while Lapentti was taken to three sets by a Polish qualifier ..

Well I never call Rochus-Muller match as serious. Both played in pair on doubles. Remember US open when Muller won Roddick after that lost Ginepri in straight sets. Then they played in pair too. So I think Lapennti have some chance.

What's the reason for the confidence on Kohlschreiber ..? Recent results suggest it's a toss of the coin ..

If you saw either of the 2 matches, they were like polar extremes. Kohlschreiber never faced a BP against Ancic and barely ever struggled. He had many BP chances but never converted.

Hernych struggled mightily against Beck, who choked magnificently. Beck was serving for the first set, blew it and lost a TB. Serving for the 2nd set, blew it, but broke back anyway to win the set. Then he was up 4-0 in the third set... and blew it again. Hernych didn't win the match, Beck handed it to him.

Easy decision for me.

Yeah but this is a different match - Kohlschreiber might not be a good match for Hernych or vice versa...just because one of them won easily and the other didn't doesn't mean much.
