Roddick vs. Gonzalez... upset?

Any one think Gonzalez can cause an upset here? ($3.50 on offer worth taking?)

Also, is Canas really suffering from an injury as stated in the Live scores thread? I'm wondering if the $2.10 for Dent is value.

How would it be an upset if Gonzalez beats Roddick? It's not like he hasn't beaten him before on hardcourts.

In terms of how the bookies have positioned the two it seems to be a mismatch with Roddick at 1.30ish and Gonzalez at 3.50+, however i believe that it will be much closer than the bookies have it.. so in terms of betting it would be an upset, as Gonzalez is paying over $3.50 in a two horse race..

Why not take the generous odds breaker?

I've checked the stats for their past matches in the draw and Roddick has been the more impressive even in his match against Verdasco. I think Roddick will take him - if Blake can bagel Gonzo...Roddick can cause some significant damage.

I've not checked the stats yet, but I'm liking Dent to beat Canas. Canas is suffering with a knee problem and he struggled like anything against Chela. Dent will hold serve more easily...but he is less likely to break. A word of warning - Canas leads 2/0 h2h - all in straight sets. Also, we all know that Canas loves to eat serve & volley players for dinner.

mate are you a novice in betting?

if you are unsure yourself why place the bet? when you need others to reassure you that's a sign for you to tell yourself no bet and move on :)

and my two cents - it's not like roddick is playing a mug on the HC, so no bet for me

I'm 70% sure that Gonzo won't win.

The gambler is right, even if you don't have the money to lose or the bottle to make the bet, then don't do it.

Star City is too seedy for us cool kids. But there is plenty of money to be made (and lost and then made again) there.

Upset? If this required Roddick to lose? Then no upset, I hope ;)

Gonzalez is a "streaky" player - brilliant one minute and very average the next. I would personally love to see him beat Roddick but I wouldn't put too much money on it.

Gonzo might win...but if the statistics from their run to this round tell the right story...Andy will win relatively convincingly. Besides...you have to be playing quite badly to be bagelled by Blake these days... :rolleyes:

Gonzo has never been the epitome of consistency. Jez, you are forgetting it doesn't matter about the stats, the only that counts is W.

W or L are the ones that count, numbers can be deemed irrelevant if not viewed properly in the context of the match.

Gonzo could hit 60 winners and 70 unforced errors I don't care as long as he wins.

I hope not. Andy lost to Gonzo at Olympics last year. He needs payback. Needs to get his confidence back. Good luck Andy! :banana:
