Don't know why I even try on Tipsarevic(or Berdych for that matter). Just a terrible record on them.

Last couple of days was planing on butting bets such that I get a win-win situation. Either my FITD pick win or my vBet wins. Decided against it.
+4404 is a splendid result It's also very close to where I am atm, at +4421 That includes +501 for the day. My day is not through, though. I got a win on Gasquet and Nadal and have four results pending. Didn't have the nerve to bet on the Colonel, which I regret, but I do not regret abstaining from a Paire bet so I guess it evens out that way.

Left for me today is a fairly large bet on Djokovic and mid-sized ones on Haas, Kohlschreiber and Wawrinka. No odds-off bet. Perhaps just as well? I've actually won 21 odds-on bets in a row now...

As for "either - or" thinking, I almost always bet on my suicide picks, and not against them. I guess I'm an all or nothing type of guy.

Hm. I won all my six bets today. Quite amazing. +974 for the day, +4894 for the tournament. And I've set a solid new record for most bets in a tournament with 94. Should pass 100 before it's over. Things are going really, really well. The lack of surprises are helping me. I'm now on 24 consecutive odds-on bets won.

Wow
Shouldn't it be 25? It was 21 in the last post, with 4 more?

94 I am still on 33.

No, it's 24. I miscounted the first time. I'll try to expand this tomorrow. As is my habit, I expect to bet on favourites then too. But perhaps not all of them.

The tournament has already set a new all time record for gross credits won at a single tournament, at 9032, even when including the not quite same ones.

Sorry about that....

I thought we'd have doubles by now. I see we don't. I'll add them last-minute, hope it's not too late for you.

Not betting for one day is no problem. This would probably be the first day in over two months that this has happened.

I'm not sure what you mean "by now" because doubles first round isn't over yet. Today, we have first, second and third round doubles. Maybe we can have doubles markets from QF onwards, as there wouldn't be much participation now. Edit: I see that you have already opened markets. Thanks. I will probably bet on 3(of the 4) of them as I like the odds. So much for no betting today.

Tomorrows markets aren't going to be much better. Odds will be too low on Nole and Nadal, and Haas-Youzhny and Stan-Richie will be too close to call. Although, I'm sure that a lot of people will bet a lot of vCash on Stan.

"By now" means since there's so much fewer singles matches to open. And since it was only four doubles matches today, no problem.

I don't much like tomorrows matches either. I do not feel confident at predicting either Gasquet - Wawrinka or Haas - Youzhny. But I'm not averse to bet on huge favourites, so I'll inch closer to 100 markets bet on anyway, I think.

Today's bets:
Federer 2600 (2/25)
Ferrer 540 (1/6)
Almagro 360 (2/9)

If all three go in I can win 378. So this will be my 2nd worst day of RG - at best! My tournament so far:
Sunday: +383
Monday: +1256
Tuesday: -397
Wednesday: +552
Thursday: +1256
Friday: +870
Saturday: +974

Bet on all 4 doubles markets.
1000 on Poles. 700 on the other Poles. 1500 on Benneteau/Zimonjic. 500 on Seppi/Troicki.

I have picked Spaniards to win the title in my doubles FITD and if they don't, my FITD is completely ruined. Still bet on Seppi/Troicki. Not sure who to support now

FITD, ST, vBetting, all these fantasy games are sometimes making me lose track of who I genuinely support. End up supporting who ever I have picked or rooting against the player everyone else has picked and I have not .

@Litotes, in case you didn't see it, I replied to your post in the live commentary yesterday.

I know the feeling...I've found myself supporting people I woulnd't normally. But I try to bet and pick impartially. Don't know if I succeed, though...

At least I wasn't the only that didn't want to bet in any match on Sunday and it was by the same reasons of Patrik

And I understand when you said that about PAW, FITD, ST, vbet. My problem is that with the only player that I can't be impartial is Federer

A possible solution to that is to search your username in the search function. Normal search, not under username in advanced search. It only searches the content of the posts and thus will give every post that has quoted posts of your( "QUOTE=Litotes;..." ) or mentions your username.

It's Pratik

Is Marto a Federer fan too? If so, we have formed essentially a Fed-fan betting thread, ironically started by a Nadal fan.


Yesterday stopped my six day positive streak. I've done quite badly on doubles bets this year.
Went 2/4 with a -1014, RG: +3390

Today: Nole, Nadal too low. 504 on Richie. Can't call the other match. Gut says Youzhny, but don't want to go against my FITD line-up.

Yes, I actually do that occasionally. Perhaps I'll do so more often.

Marto is a Nadal fan who publicly rooted against Federer both when he played Carreno-Busta, Devvarman and Benneteau. Would have against Simon also, no doubt, but for his vacation. So he adds some balance

Yesterday stopped my winning on favourites-streak on 26 and saw me go -62 for the day. Almagro is my worst player bet on and one of the best bet against, while Robredo is my second best bet on and one of my worst bet against. I only bet on Almagro because I had him in suicide, and I only had him in suicide because that was the only possible option for going all the way, having already used Tsonga and Robredo. Silly me.

For today:
Djokovic 2052 (1/18)
Nadal 2016 (1/18)
Youzhny 112 (7/8)
Wawrinka 60 (7/10)

Wins in the first two will secure a small plus regardless of the other two.

I find some of the strategies used my ST players very interesting. I would have thought that most people would have gone for safe bets today. I picked Nadal as the other two(excluding Nole) are too close to call. Yes, that would leave me at a position with no possible pick for the final and by my future strategy, even the SF if Tsonga beats Federer, but it would guarantee me three more days barring huge upsets.

On a related note, does it happen often that there is no winner?
