Early thoughts seeing as Vliegen has let me down today. I think Stosur is worth a punt against Ivanovic. You may think I'm crazy seeing as Ivanovic took out Mauresmo on her way to the quarters last year, but having seen Stosur play vs Hantuchova recently, I can safely say, should Ivanovic not be on top form, Stosur will be all over her.

If memory serves me correctly, Stosur has already beaten Ivanovic this year, so at around 3.5, I think it's a decent punt. Ruano Pascal/Santangelo may be worth looking at, either as a double, or as a building block for something greater.

Also on the men's side it may be worth considering Hernych, Patience, Vik and maybe even Benneteau as they are all underdogs who might come out on top..

Safin or Gonzalez???

Pretty much 50/50 match mate...

I wouldn't touch it...similar styles clashing and if they are both playing reasonably well then little will separate them. Not a good match to bet imo.

Why do you think Benneteau is an underdog ? , I put on him with a combination of Monfils over Murray and Baggy over Portas . Lets see what happens tommorow ..

Hi Skywalker

I think Benneteau is the underdog only in terms of the odds offered by my bookie. I may stay away from him in the end. Based on previous experience, I don't think he's to be 100% trusted, and I can see a 5 setter emerging....although the optimist in me says Benneteau could win comfortably....so gl

Horatio Caine
05-29-2006, 09:58 PM
Probably just going with Ljubo x Mathieu @ 1.39...neither should lose a set let alone the match.

Not got a good reading on the higher-odd matches...

Gonzo over Safin @ 1.61 - but similar match-up and always a good reason to stay away.

Murray over Monfils @ 2.10 - again, not sure enough with this.

Benneteau over Tipsarevic @ 2.05 - Frenchie not bad on clay and Tipsy really struggles to get past the first hurdle in ATP events.

Dick Norman over Edgardo Massa @ 2.00 - more of a hunch (which is never good!) but Big Dick has come into his element these days and that big serve will help him out no end.

Kindlmann over Sabau @ 1.83 - really not impressived with Sabau at all and Kindlmann has shown metal in qualifying.

Gonzo/Safin will be close.

No bet certainly. But I would favour Gonzo.

what do you think about TJ-C.Rochus and Vik-Serra? i would like to bet on TJ and Vik...but i''ve strange fear???

I quite like Tojo too but I don't like betting on matches where players may not be 100% physically...and Chris isn't bad on clay either so he will be trouble. No bet for me.

Never seen Serra play although I have an idea as to how he does play. Vik is quite consistent and if he is on he will be tough to break down. Serra is really struggling right now but you'd expect the French crowd to help him a little. Go with value for this one if you must bet it I reckon.

He's just taking a longshot chance thats equlivablt to rolling triple 6s with three dice. Probably wont happen but his other picks will cover the lost. In short, Berlocq over Ljub is free money to the bookies.

Thanks for the insight Twist

Not being adventurous today (again!) but if either of these two lose then that is appalling and I deserve to lose my money ;)

PHM x Ljubicic @ 1.39 - 20% stake

PHM would be fancied to beat Phau on a hardcourt...the German hasn't got an imposing game and is mostly gobbled up by bigger players. On clay he has even less of a chance and PHM often performs well in front of his home crowd too.

Ljubo is beginning to perform consistently well on all surfaces. His losses on clay have come to players that can stay with him serve-wise or return very well...Berlocq is neither and an average dirt-baller. Ljubo couldn't have asked for a much nicer R1 opponent and he should make the most of it.

Good luck! :yeah:

Well, as for Ljubo..When it comes to Grand Slam you better stay away. There's no way to explain that a guy like him made his best achievement in GS this year(QF in Australia).
He played all the slams from 2000 to now, and his best achievment(in all slams!) was 3rd round.

I put Jackson, Verdasco, Benneteau, Kanepi, Ondraskova, Pironkova in about 15 separate accumulators yet for some reason am left sweating on this depressing scenario. Simon and Medina G were poor picks, but they still should have done better. Medina G hasn't lost yet but it looks like an uphill struggle. if Medina does win in 3 and Ljubo, Mathieu win, I'll be happy.

If you don't buy a ticket, you don't win the raffle. I like to try and turn small amounts into big amounts. With enough variety, and a bit of luck, I believe it is possible because I've done it before. I get no satisfaction out of winning the odd hundred here and there, I want to try and win £20 or £50 or £100k, and I'm gonna stick at it!

I shouldn't have touched Simon and I should have seen Azarenka as more of a threat. I believe opening rounds of Grand Slams are the best opportunity to try and win big, and one day I will do it again!

Now I've got a new problem. Mathieu!

If I had just gone for a few selections, I probably would have a lot of winning bets today, so I take your point.

That is exactly how I operated when I first started betting, and apart from hitting one 35/1 accumulator of 15 matches (in which Mantilla beat Ginepri from 5/7 0/5 in Rome) and one 9/1 accumulator...I won nothing.

You have a marginally better chance than winning the lottery...that is it.

You've got me thinking. I guess it's just my stubborn nature and because of certain disappointing or joyful betting experiences. For example, last year at Wimbledon I missed out on 100k because of Karlovic losing to Bracciali - a 27/28 accumulator. Harsh huh?

If Medina wins, Mathieu and Ljubo win, I will be in profit and will be waiting on Dulko to add a bit more. But I still believe I could have turned £500 into around £50k today and I am disappointed (again) that I failed. After today, I won't be betting on the F/o no matter the outcome.

I didn't for obvious reasons post all my bets on here. But there are at least three or four bets that I did place that at this stage it looks like Simon/Sabau stopped me from making between £6 - £15k. I know it might seem unrealistic but I don't think you can compare it to the lottery (I've never bought a ticket :))

This morning I realised I had made a mistake with Sabau and I wasn't entirely happy with Simon to be honest, after he lost to Marach last week. I keep making foolish mistakes that undoes all my other good picks. I usually save my best form for GS's but so far this has been a sickening disappointment.

Yeah but it is great you get so close...but if 1 loses out of all of those...you get nothing. Chances of 1 losing in a play of 2 or 3 players if small if you pick good matches.

But I understand how you feel....but it is good to move on and try other strategies ;) You could wait months or even years to hit a £100k accumulator...the results on the ATP these days are such that very few players are reliable week in week out. It is even harder.

Well Simon is unexpected but yeah...Sabau wasn't a good pick.

But my point is that in order to get these 15K/1 odds you have to put together those sorts of matches where anything might happen. Someone is going to lose...it is inevitable.

So far I have made 2 bets this FO...a double @ 1.3 which cashed and a double yesterday @ 1.65 which failed because Vliegen didn't take 1 of 7 mps. The odds may be low...but the chances of winning are so much greater and without sounding harsh (and I don't mean to be)...I'm winning money (no matter how small)...and you're not.

My question to you...do you want to earn money? You won't earn it in one windfall just like that...chances are minute.

Only way to do it is to gradually build the bank ;)

Best wishes though :yeah:

Hey Jez, it's not over yet! Medina, Ljubo and Mathieu might well make me around £400 profit, which isn't 'not' making money. And even if MG doesn't win, there's always Dulko to dig me out of a hole...lol

I started off shaklily but in the end, I did well to leave out Stosur, Patience, and a couple of others out of a lot of bets, but unfortunately I admit, I f'd it up. Sabau was an awful thought, I guess I was tired. I believe Simon was a risk because he's never played at the F/O before and there's something about his face which says 'don't bet on me'.

You say, some will lose, it's inevitable. I agree, but for me, it's all about cracking the code!

I guess there are all sorts of gamblers, there's no right or wrong way, and we can all dish out advice, and the fact is people can tell me I'm unrealistic, it doesn't sound harsh, I totally understand.

I'm not going to bet on round 2 because I know what will happen. I will lose!

Oh alright, you've convinced me!

Benneteau over Tipsarevic @ 2.05 - Frenchie not bad on clay and Tipsy really struggles to get past the first hurdle in ATP events.

Dick Norman over Edgardo Massa @ 2.00 - more of a hunch (which is never good!) but Big Dick has come into his element these days and that big serve will help him out no end.

Kindlmann over Sabau @ 1.83 - really not impressived with Sabau at all and Kindlmann has shown metal in qualifying.

Someone needs to to inject me with enough confidence to hit these leans one day... :haha: :haha:

The French Open has just begun! R1 creates surprises whereas R2 - we know more of the form of players and some of the match-ups are great!

There are some goodies for tomorrow...don't misss out man!


Haven't looked any further than Blake v Almagro .. will be interested to see the odds because for mine Almagro is a shoe-in .. Blake being the number eight seed and all might mean the match is priced fairly evenly .. :drool:

I think the bookies will be onto this Flamb,in my opinion Nico should be 1.35 but if its any more will be a bargain!!

Sadly not - Almagro is 1.36 I think with Willhill...but combine that with the 1.44 on offer for Berdych over Volandri...and you have a nice start for a good bet :drool: :inlove:

Congrats Monfils backers....Murray really needs to cut the crap out of his diet...spend more time in the gym and less time on court and get his ass in gear. He can be top 20 even top 10 if he sorts his fitness out :banghead:

People may laugh but I liken him to a poor man's Nalbandian or Bandy's apprentice. :shrug:

Mr Flamboyant
05-30-2006, 03:28 PM
Yep, I think the Almagro plane is well and truly on the radar now so to speak .. The days of getting him at $1.75 to beat the likes of Juan Carlos Ferrero are over unfortunately! He's fourth in the outright betting despite being unseeded.

If he's $1.40 or so might make for a nice parlay leg if we can find a similar mis-match somewhere in the draw..

Medina G finally wins 9-7 in the 3rd. When Mathieu wins I will collect £900ish from a £300 stake. If Dulko wins, I will pick up another £300ish from a few small stakes but similar accumulators that included Ondraskova, Kanepi and Benneteau. Not a bad day but it depends how you look at it. Should have made more.

P.S. Anyone watching Eurosport? Peter Fleming seems to really have it in for Annabel, giving one word replies to her questions and making some really sharp comments about Andy Murray, one of which was something along the lines of 'if he doesn't want to work hard and have the fame and fortune, there's plenty of librarian jobs out there for him'.

lmao.

Surely hitting all three leans injects enough self confidence to make a go at it... ;)

Nice work with the great tips and/or leans!

Oh, and Murray/Monfils was the worst 5 setter in recent history, they might as well have been double their age; pathetic.

Have taken Safin to beat Gonzalez at 2.25, £300 stake.

I know Skywalker, but I have a serious and a silly side and my silly side took over once Dulko decided to play with my heart. Besides, there's not a player who I'd rather lose on!

Yoel and co.
05-30-2006, 06:36 PM
Dulko X Monaco @ 1.96

GGL @ 4.5

Monaco won easily, Dulko won very uneasily...

GGL lost

Well they were 3 of 5 at the time...Murray lost.

But yeah - the inclination was that the Murray match would either be great or crap...and I sided with many in thinking it crap...his matches are normally shit. He won't put in the hours in the gym but he puts in many more hours than necessary in court time...someone needs to lock him in the gym :rolleyes:

Horatio Caine
05-30-2006, 08:24 PM
Probably just going with Ljubo x Mathieu @ 1.39...neither should lose a set let alone the match.

I'll take that and a bag of potato chips :lol: Thanks Ivan and PHM :yeah: :banana: :smoke:


Not got a good reading on the higher-odd matches...

Gonzo over Safin @ 1.61 - but similar match-up and always a good reason to stay away.

Murray over Monfils @ 2.10 - again, not sure enough with this.

Benneteau over Tipsarevic @ 2.05 - Frenchie not bad on clay and Tipsy really struggles to get past the first hurdle in ATP events.

Dick Norman over Edgardo Massa @ 2.00 - more of a hunch (which is never good!) but Big Dick has come into his element these days and that big serve will help him out no end.

Kindlmann over Sabau @ 1.83 - really not impressived with Sabau at all and Kindlmann has shown metal in qualifying.

I'll try some of these next time :lol:

Murray - work on your fitness please :help: :help: :help: :rolleyes:

05-30-2006, 09:14 PM
Parlaying using the French connection:

Monfils/Simon - $2.30

be lucky


lost

I wish I could get a tape of this match to see what happened, Simon losing to hernandez is bad enough but to do so in straight sets in front of your home crowd is pathetic. And the worst part is that there were absolutely nothing to suggest to me Hernandez could win this

My rant is over

Good luck Sambuca,love this pic aswell :) Spewing missed out on J Benneteau :mad:

40 units on Lius Horna 2.00 over Novak Djorkovic - Been impressed with Horna display in the last 2 weeks n should win comfortably imo aswell!!!!This time no reciepts,no bloody worries :cool:

There is a god :) Bet void,Must admit was freaking out why Horna was down soo bad,mustve not recovered from his last retirement!!
