  1. Wimbledon 2018

    Final set yesterday finished 26-24 which can't be any good for whoever managed to reach final, Isner looked shattered nearer the finish more so than Anderson. I know wimbledon have it you must win by 2 clear games, both players agreed after match that something has to be changed, as this match could have went on for an eternity. Just watching the match yesterday I felt that there was more pressure on Anderson throughout that last set as he had to hold his serve or he was out, whereas Isner could have lost his serve but had the chance to break back next game. Both exceptional servers so why should one seem to have less pressure on serve rather than equally throughout last set. Why can't say Isner serve first to make it 7-6 then Anderson is allowed 2 service games, where this makes it 8-7 to Anderson, so Isner then has to serve to stay in match, and just carry on like that, to me that would seem a bit fairer in last set, rather than one person always needing to hold serve or out, with more pressure on his serve every time than Isner. Don't know much about the ins and outs of tennis, as I just watch occasionally, but that match yesterday needs rules sorted for benefit of the players.
  2. Thanks to all contributors to this thread, nice finish Darran. Don't really back many non-league teams, but do enjoy having a browse through the thread. Well done all.
  3. Non-League Predictions > April 19th

    Nice tip Darren, you know your stuff around these leagues.
  4. Non-League Predictions > Dec 4th - 6th

    Darren when you pointed out the 7/1 were you referring to the scoreline
  5. Non-League Predictions > Dec 4th - 6th

    Maybe even better to wait till 4 up, then go have a cigar
  6. Non-League Predictions > Dec 4th - 6th

    Why lay off when 2 up, better just waiting till they go 3 up Missed your post Darren till too late, but excellent stuff.

    Watched the early match this morning Kvitova v Miguruza, excellent match, best so far with both playing well till Petra started ratcheting up the pressure 2nd set, making her make more errors. Alway's thought Muguruza was to short in the outright marker before this game @ 3, very low considering the matches she still had to play. Starting to get a little hooked on this tennis now.
  8. US Open 2017

    Cheers, how do you see the Safarova v Vandeweghe match panning out? Just you boy's have a lot more knowledge about tennis than me, but I'm learning. Noticed Saforova is also having to play doubles also, so that's not so good regarding rest in between matches.
  9. US Open 2017

    Czech could you give me the link to the site which gives you these draws in tennis comp, very handy for other events with the quick updates....Didnt watch Federer this morning was to tired to stay up, backed 3-1 Federer as I thought like most with watching him in previous matches, didn't look like his normal self. Was this a good display from Federer, or he just done enough to get through to next round.
  10. US Open 2017

    Federer will probably only start match if he genuinely believes he can finish match, he has never retired from a match previously. So would assume if he play's he must feel he can finish the match, maybe some sort of discomfort that he feels he could deal with. Czech that draw you put at the start of thread very helpful, also your updates on who went through is impressive.

    According to Matthias Stach of German Eurosport Federer is questionable for tonight's match.
  12. US Open 2017

    My two girls plodding away nicely in this comp, managed to get matched 250 for Safarova, and Sloane Stevens still in there. Kyrgios my only male back before comp up to his usual injury nonsense, has all the talent but just seems to struggle with injuries, you take your chances when backing him.
  13. US Open 2017

    I like the look of that bet, something definitely troubling Federer from what Ive seen of him so far. I'll follow you in on this one.
  14. US Open 2017

    As I don't follow tennis until the big tournaments, what's the reason Safarova is unseeded in this tournament? has she had a bad year at singles? Just find it strange that a player who I know to be very good, plus the fact she is in Pliskova's section of draw which looks a reasonable draw, priced at 200/1 seems generous.
  15. US Open 2017

    Normally take an early price on a few players before US open, have Sloane Stevens @ 160 and Kyrgios @34 just for an early interest in the outrights. Normally leave the individual matches to the forum, as I don't know many of these tennis players, with just following the big events from time to time. Keep up the good work.
