Going for Soderling over Stepanek @ 2.38

Soderling has really impressed me this week. I think he can take out Step, who has played ok but nothing great.

I don't think Acasuso should have any problems Grosjean, who has stumbled a bit through the rounds. Acasuso played some good tennis against Ljubo. Gonzo should take care of Verdasco no worries.

Gonzalez x Acasuso at 2.00

Leans on Davy and Simon too.

Odds from Betfair.

Interesting Stat of the day

Davydenko has gone 20-4 against left handed players since the start of 2004.

Like your Soderling pic mate good luck,with Gonzo i feel it will be a tough game for him against Nando!becareful of that one!!Smoking Joe Acasuso looks damn good,probably go all the way!interesting to see what odds he is at atm!!If the surface is very slow would would have to favour Donkey comfortably over Jarrko!!

Good Guy James Blake 1.67 over Mario Ancic looks very good imo,best bet of the day!!Could be a very nice treble with Giles Simon 1.50,Joe Acasuso1.35 !!

50 units on James Blake 1.67 over Mario Ancic - I will back Blake ground strokes n return of serve against Ancic anyday,James to win in straight sets imho!!!

30 units on Giles Simon 1.50/Joe Acasuso 1.35 @ 2.02 over Max Mirnyi/Sebastian Grosjean - Both should win comfortably!!

10 units on Fernando Verdasco 3.00 over Fernando Gonzalez - Verdasco has should some good fight n can match Gonzo on ground level imo!!!


Good luck - Other leans on Soderling 2.2/Donkey 1.62!!!

who is acasuso playing and what is his price? (for some reason that match isn't posted on TAB Sportsbet at present .. probably because those scrooges want to deprive punters the chance to plunge on the red hot Argentine !!)

Jelana Jankovic 2.00 over Katrina Sebrotnik looks real good imo,any one else agree or oppose??Also Gorgeuos Myskina 4.10 is a darkhorse over Kutnetsova aswell although Sletvana has been playing well,Anastasia has some nice ground strokes n moves well trouble her n definetely worth a shot!!!

I have such a huge hangover that I have to go out to breath fresh air every 20 sec. but still half an hour to bet Ferrer or Ferrero....last time I remember it was Thursday too, they played early much too, odds were the same only the one with ending "o" was favourite...yeah, I remember that I lost $$ on him too,so I go with Ferru today...I convince myself...it so easy to bet

Chucho x Simon @ 2
Husarova/Peer x Jarkko x Jankovic x Schnyder x Blake @ 32.00
Jane played really bad doubles last week and Shahar should have a rest...I go against

Only one play today so far i like:

Ancic over Blake...An USA boy in European Clay MS QF...Simply can't happen! ;)

Im getting on Mirnyi @ 2.5, there's some value in those odds.

Taken Blake over Ancic @ 1.61 - small stakes

Slower surface should suit the American's game more...seems to be in good nick right now.

I'd be surprised if Mirnyi beats Simon...the match-up is not good for Max. Simon retrieves a lot of balls and I think he will get too much back for Max to handle.

I'm sorry sports freak, I'd have to advise against Myskina , Schnyder, or Jankovic.


If you've seen her match yesterday against Vinci you won't be in such a hurry to back her against Kuznetsova. It's the kind of match that should stir some ambition/pride from Myskina, but I feel it will go like the previous matches similar to this one went this year - versus Sharapova, Safina, Hingis, Schnyder (@ the AO and earlier this year).

If Schnyder beats Venus I'd be very surprised, my money is on Venus.

Jankovic is simply not backable at those odds, not after she lost 10 (ten) matches in a row to anyone that came in her sights - qualifiers, seeds, top 100 or top 200, you name it.Besides I feel Srebotnik is somehow in form. Don't get me wrong, anything can happen but those odds (~2) are not really value.

Beware backing against Ancic, he is up to his usual self again, i.e. putting himself way behind in the match and then coming out of nowhere to win it. He was a set and a break down against GGL yesterday, and then broke to love and won every game after that.

Yeah, that makes me remember what he did against Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo.

Taken:

Donkey, Gonzo, Robredo, Acasuso, Simon and in the women's Pennetta. I'm really considering Jankovic over Srebotnik but will probably pass

He just did it again. Blake served for the match in sets 2 and 3 and Mario broke him each time quite easily.

I was all over him this time, people just kept on putting odds of 10-15 on him when he was under pressure.
