Default Let's play the Value - Thursday

Reffering of course to Luka...

He can be found @2.00 a set and @3.75 straight...

He outplayed Karlo with great serve and same return as well and return
was his main weapon vs Jose...

cheers

Did you see the match? Didn't think there was any tv coverage of this tourny until the semi finals?

Could well be that Ivo tanked the match rather than Gregorc playing well.

Hey guys where do you want to take this discussion... we're not in kindergarden right...


It's a major tournament with cameras... I heard the commentary of the Slovenian TV and
coaches, reporters and Luka himself (as well as Karlo) gave their views of the game...
so no need to think Gregorc was lucky in his 6 games here!

Fair enough, tend to think Seppi's consistent baseline game will be too much for Gregorc, but this is Seppi so expect anything.

what do you think of andreev, jaap? odds are good and he seems to handle big servers quite well on hard lately.

Yeah, he looks the most viable play of the day. Andreev in hot form these days.

One thing I would say is that it is not normal for Ivo to lose a set 6-2 unless he is not feeling well. Even Rafa and Fed can only break him at a maximum once per match.

yep... and he limped as well

http://www.sportnet.hr/Vijest.aspx?ID=364310

http://sportskenovosti.hr/index.php?...clanak_id=3571

2 Croatian sources (as I see you wouldn't believe a SLO one!) and neither of them are
mentioning any kind of sickness or temperature. They just say Ivo's serve in 1st and 3rd
sets was around 50% and the opponent used that... A bad day, that should be forgotten (the
sum-up)

Of course Ivo usually is a threat with his serves and Gregorc is (was) a no-name, but then
nothing showed of an injury by Acasuso and he was broken some 5-6 times...

I'm sure everyone including Jose & Karlo underestimated Luka, which was a good thing for him,
but saying he simply was lucky in 6 wins here and looking for other excuses is a bit too arrogant

I'm sure he's quite overwhelmed by the fact he's defeated the "big guys", which should affect
his game today, but on the other hand he's also boosted by the same fact, so I simply have to
at least give him a chance for a set and the odds for that are more than tempting... and still
a small stake @ the given odds for a win is intact as well.
