my dart is on beto, claycourter v. someone who's favorite surface is...indoor hard...given his hot hand & home crowd though, I'll go easy
Bet to win a unit on Martin

I already got beto from a parlay from today with Hingis also leftover to complete it.

But otherwise im taking Ljubi x Safina ( tuesday )

Safinas my cash cow for the tourny so i'll keep riding her. Ljubi cuz I think RHHs run ends here facing a bigger server.

Le Monf x Henin ( tuesday )

Gael impressed me with his win over Blake. Blake played him tough and he didn't cave. Think hes the better clay court player and the home crowd cheers him on. Henins an add on.

And a single on Hewitt @ 10.00 its worth a shot with Rafa not making it look as easy as he normally does. Rafa should still win but like I said worth the shot

monfils played 3 matches, each of them was a 5 setter

so 3X5 doesn't equal 18

Only got Hingis at 2-1 carried over from yesterday, there's nothing very tempting tonight

£151 to make £1k.

Martin to beat Benneteau
Ramirez-H to beat Ljubicic
Djokovic to put Monfils in his place (I don't like Monfils, he has an irritating face)

Win or lose, this is my last major bet for a while. Fingers crossed. If the first two go to plan, I may cover the Djokovic match.

Feel Hewitt has no real chance against Nadal and won't be tempted even if Nadal is 2 sets to 1 down.

This week my most clear and correct thought processes have only surfaced *after* placing all my bets. lol

this time, I've mentally committed, taken some time out, and in honour of other 'safe' betters that have been encouraging me to tone down the number of selections, I have duly removed Ramirez-H (who I had a feeling would beat Ferrer but never went for it).

I'm now officially backing Ljubicic, though not laying a penny on him. I will instead bet big on Martin and if I win, I may bet on Djokovic.

As for the Djokovic match, I just don't trust anyone anymore. What if a group of influential French players/influential gangstas encourage Djokovic to not play so well today. After Acasuso losing to Dlouhy, anything is possible. I don't trust all tennis players, especially not Stepanek or Acasuso, but also in the past, the like of Hrbaty and Kafelnikov.

Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

Some absolute beauties of matches 2day especially the dogs great value there!!!One pic that stands out i do like is Rusty vs Rafa Over 40.5 games @ 3.75,the way Rustys going i feel he can keep this match close n win a set aswell!!

20 units on Rusty's vs Nadal Over 40.5pts @ 3.75 - Feel this match will be an absolute beauty n not a white wash hopefully!!!

20 units on RR Hidalgo 2.85 over Ivan Lubo - Lubo hasnt been impressive although his serve might keep him in the match i feel he might run out of gas in the end!!!

Good luck - Other leans on (Hingis-Bhupathi 1.55/Djokovic 1.58 nice double)/Benneteau 2.30 i remember Julien has beaten a few good player b4 awhile ago//Safina 1.90/Vaidisova 1.85!!!

Come Onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Djokovic to rip Monfils apart. Managed to get him him @1.75 (Betfair) but he has dropped to 1.6 now!

His game is too big. Monfils struggled against 3 poor/average clay courters and will be tired. Djokovic cruised against Horna/Haas and won against Gonzo, who is very, very good.

Easy win in 3/4 sets.

I agree totally, but Blake on paper had the ability to also rip apart Monfils after an impressive win against Almagro. I admire your confidence, something I have lost gradually this week.

Gael vs Rafa

RRH looked good to me immediately, but I wondered is the reason I wanted to back him so readily because I failed to do so against Ferrer? If Ljubicic sticks to what he's good at, it doesn't matter how much RRH will fight. I predict a surprisingly easy victory for the big man from Croatia! My balls are clearly shrinking!

Martin to beat Benneteau should be a formality IMO. Admittedly Benneteau has surpassed expectations but for me, the victory over Rochus tells me this is Martin's time to shine. As for Nadal and Hewitt, I think those backing Hewitt are going to be disappointed! Whatever happens, this has been a decent Grand Slam so far! GL all punters!

Djokovic is way too chalky now for a play, Monfils has no problems playing against with a big attacking game as he is great on defense and has tons of speed. All three of Djokovic's opponents were big hitters, and he simply out hit them; won't be the case against Monfils. Plus Monfils will have all the crowd support and he seems to thrive off of it.

Poor old Martin has a bad back and is surely about to retire

he served underhanded at the end of the 5th game.

I didn't bet on it in the end but I hope anyone who bets on Benneteau gets their winnings paid out.

Ljubo started well against RRH

Nadal to beat Hewitt 3-0

Nadal is the best claycourter in the world. Hewitt hasn't had a decent claycourter yet and he will get thrashed I feel.

Medium stake at 1.65 (Betfair)

I gave you the kiss of death mate. Turned over and Nadal was up a break and a set. As soon as I had posted, Hewitt began a comeback. It is all my fault..

First bet of the day, taken Djokovic at 1/4

He's clearly not infallible but should be able to win this one..

Dodgy time to take him but just glad Monfils has raised his odds slightly with a slight comeback. Hewitt and Nadal were a credit to Tennis today.
