Default The Tennis Tenner Challenge

Basically a fun mug thread for anyone to take part in.

Start with a tenner, pick a winner, put the entire winnings on the next pick. Lets see what sort of streaks we can build.

In each post include a summary of the run so far with stake, match, odds and returns, something like....

Bet 1. £/$ 10, Mug v Tool, 1.1,
Bet 2. £11 Cockchimp v Dickrash 1.1
Bet 3. £12.10 etc....

Bet as little or as often as you like. And bank any time you like too.

I'll be trying to hit nailed on certs to build up a big run of shitty wins.

ok.......

Bet 1

Verdasco v Tomic

£10 - 1.09

I don't see what the need is to specify a unit of currency.

yeah no problem but you're going to feel a lot of regret when your v10 is v10000 in 6 months time. 10 to win 2 in decimal odds is 1.2 btw, at the risk of patronising you.

1. £10 Verdasco v Tomic 1.09

2. £10.90 Berdych v Klein 1.07

How the f*ck am I supposed to know where you live? F*cking yank.

Bottom line is it was wrong of you to infer that it is illegal to gamble everywhere in the US.
