  1. Opole abandoned us over here on Tennis to win us some money at UFC.Won back some unexpected yesterday.A lot especially from Ben Askren. Sorry if I'm off topic.I thought yall should know since Wimbledon has been depressing.Sigh.
  2. My picks for the day Vesely to beat Paire.Paire is yet to face any serious competition so far in the tournament beating Londero who prefers clay,Kecmanovic retired with injury.I don't understand why Jiri is the underdog here and none of his victories have been flukes. Fabbiano to beat Verdasco.Two men in form Verdasco more so after coming back to clean Edwards on his home tournament.Verdasco who's had a history of chocking has had a quite consistent year with good performances including wins over Khachanov (twice ) and Thiem albeit over clay.I say it's a toss up with maybe Fabbiano edging over past slightly. I'd avoid Anderson vs Pella which smells of an upset.Anderson is the favourite and rightly so but Pella is motivated and has managed to pull some unexpected wins on grass.This tournament is no stranger to upsets.
  3. Quite the opposite.If Kyrgios thinks he's the underdog you should expect a performance from him.Hence why he fails to show up against poor opposition."I beat you n I spent all night at the pub" is winner mentality from th guy.Also the way he downplayed himself in the first round presser https://www.youtube.com › watch Nick Kyrgios Wimbledon 2019 First Round Press Conference - YouTube I'd say expect a long match of epic proportions.
  4. Tomic fined his 1St round winnings for tanking his match vs Tsonga https://www.bbc.com/sport/tennis/48868080
  5. The Kecmanovic match is a toss up.Also favoring PCB versus Sonego today.
  6. Going by the form he's been having lately and the way he's been it's becoming harder to dicount P.H Herbert.I'm backing him to defeat a resurgent Goffin because the value is crazy.I'm also considering a firing Mannarino to upset Verdaco.Mannarino having a terrible year n I have a feeling he's more hungry than Verdaso who's generally better on Clay irregardless.
  7. In play... Nothing to show for it but I think Albot can cause an upset here. No logic behind it. Decent odds atm.
  8. Mahut is not going away.If the odds stay decent I'll have a huge wager on him.
  9. Felix Auger officially out.Groin injury incurred 1st set Vs Paire at Lyon Open final on Saturday.You have to feel for the guy.He also had a favourable draw all the way to 3R to meet Delpo as the 1st serious competition of his caliber in his quarter.Damn
  10. Sad for FAA if he is indeed injured.He was to make a run at US Open last year n now.He has no luck at Grand Slams.
  11. Few personal opinions apart from the picks above. I agree Millman is capable of an upset of Zverev.I'll be taking a side one on this one. I was looking forward to take on Cameron Norrie before Kyrgios pulled out.No one believes he's really ill n he hates clay season with a passion. Weren't he to take on a serious player in the 2nd round I'd have considered him to go on a bit further. Mikael Ymer will be decent n I expect him to win his first match art RG.I'd stay away from Jarry Vs DelPo.Most unpredicted 1st round match. Kohlschreiber is a formidable opponent especially this year but I think there's value in taking R Haase against him based on motivation.Also Lloyd Harris prefers hard courts to clay I don't see why he's the favourite to beat Rosol who despite being poor in form on a good day is decent on Clay.Thoughts @South_African_Punter
  12. Placed mine after Shapovalov won the 2nd set and got a decent return.
  13. Today I'm taking Nadal,Wawrinka,Nishikori all based on virtuous superiority. Fucsovics is regurlaly underrated around here n people lose money, I never bet against him that said i'm silently rooting for stan this tournament. I never bet on WTA which I equate to throwing money away but I have a hunch on Ostaponenko today. The matches that I'll follow for upsets are Kachanov/Feli which will come down to aces contest and who will throw more.Kachanov this year having th finals curse that followed Dimitov and might take feli.
  14. I've won handsomely this week conservatively betting on Gunnerswan who I've followed through the challenger series closely the past year or so.Generally I'd rank him a 60-70 player and a 45 ranked player who can upset a top 50 regurlarly. I remember him at AO this year and could have gone farther had he not met Tiafoe.I think If Wawrinka can upset Federer(looking at his side of the draw) it possible this Masters 1000 is his for the taking. Nole isn't looking unbeatable and if it's a man to upset him in the final its none other than Stanimal.
