  1. Have to say watched a few matches today in the girls, as I find these are the matches that are not cut and dried as the mens. Some players Ive never seen before playing good stuff, Kanepi played really well, had Halep running all over the shop. Kalinskaya another young player, played really well but just came up against Goerges in a better mindset than the previous Goerges, but the standard in the tennis very good when you actually watch these players that you never consider as having a chance against the bigger names.

    to even say that goerges is a world class material is an abuse of the word world class. she played ridiculously against a 17 yr old in Moscow open and add to it was almost going to be defeated by another 17 yr old had she kept her nerve in the dying set. her service which was her strong point is no longer there in past few tournaments

    Did you watch semi with Goerges v Sabalenka? very high standard of tennis from both.

    @dave5perth I apologize for not posting tips that win 6-0 6-0 :$.

    Ha Ha wasn't meaning it like that, I could see from start of second set she was the better player, just baffles me how she can lose 6-1 in first, I was genuinely thinking of backing her at start of second set when I watched a little, but with me not really knowing most of the players just let my original bet carry on. 

  4. Enjoy reading the tips from you lads even though I seldom bet on tennis, normally just wait till the big events and do a few outright. Tonight didn't see anything that I liked regarding football, so decided to have a bash at Czech double above. Was looking at the scores on 365 and seen Abanda was getting lashed in first set, so decided to watch match from start of second set just to see how bad Abanda must be, soon as I started watching knew something must have happened first set losing 6-1, then from watching you could see Abanda was the better player, could improve her serve a bit, but always looked the better player, strange how she can loss first set 6-1. Nice tip Czech, but had me panicking after watching scoreboard on 365 first set :lol

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    Lopez was just poor, nothing more in it imo. The draw links are straight from the US Open main website, I don't think that there are any quickly-updated ones for normal events. Your best bet is the official ATP website (http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/tournaments), at least they have both main tournaments and Challengers.

    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.

  8. 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.


    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.

  10. 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.

    Feliciano Lopez (+2.5 sets) to beat Roger Federer at 1.91 with Pinnacle

    Federer to turn it on now that I'm betting against him? Well, it obviously can happen, but I think his current problems are so structural that they can't be sorted out overnight or even over two days. Like Youzhny and Tiafoe, Lopez should sense the opportunity and give it his all - and Federer should provide the rest to drop at least a set. If he was able to turn a 6-1 *5-4 cruise against Youzhny into a five-set battle, surely Lopez shouldn't be at 1.91 to win a set?

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
