  1. Gonzalez also had 2 SPs at 5-2* in the second set to allow for a 0-6 decider. Unreal.
  2. One more for me today. Back Alejandro Gonzalez (+4.5) to beat Peter Polansky at 1.80 with Pinnacle The odds for Polansky have been shortening, but I simply don't believe that he deserves that much credit. Still a thoroughly average player and hardly fresh either. Dancevic gave him a good test, so I fancy Gonzalez to do the same.
  3. Some funny bits this week as well. Rosol in Prague against Maden - Led 5-0* in the first set, lost it 5-7. Ferrer in Hamburg against Delbonis - Led 5-1* in the first set, lost it 5-7. Kr. Pliskova in Nanchang against Hibino - Led *3-0 in the first set, went to adjust a fan, had to retire with a hand injury. My guess is that we're going to see Ferrer beat Federer in the US Open later on (current H2H 0-17). I mean, Federer is a special case of his own. He's 33-3 in this season, with the two non-exhibition losses coming against Donskoy and Haas .
  4. @potcpicks! Let's hope it comes in as well!
  5. Back Christopher Eubanks (+4.5) to beat Jared Donaldson at 1.90 with Pinnacle Great result for Eubanks in the first round and I fancy him to give it his all against Donaldson as well, as he's got a history of playing top-notch tennis in this event. Donaldson is definitely overrated at the moment, he's done very little since Miami really. He's also a bit choky, while Eubanks should be able to hit freely.
  6. Seriously though, 2017 has been sickening me over and over again. Look at Quiroz ffs - he was 7-6 2-0* up and had three break points to make it *3-0. And then he loses 7-6 3-6 1-6 and ruins the handicap bet. Too many of these freak occurrences this year. @Waggy_2 As I've already stated, I think that there is, especially in live betting, which is what you should go for if your ambition is to make a living out of it (not my case). I still believe that this is just a long downswing with very little luck going my way, as that's what my experience tells me. I've had losing seasons before, I've had winning seasons before, you can't win them all. Are there better sports for betting if all you want is profit? Most likely. Is it possible to win money in tennis? Yes, but I don't believe that you should be trying to do so if you don't enjoy following the game.
  7. Short answer: 2017 ROI is approx. 95%, 2016 ROI was 103%
  8. There isn't any "one" place. Those who post them usually have them in their signatures or perhaps in the Glory Hunters sub-forum. As for myself - 2017 has been a nightmare so far, but yes, I'd say that I have a slight edge over the bookies in the long term. My feeling is that tennis betting has gotten harder recently, especially pre-match betting, but I believe that it's still possible to be profitable. Now to prove it...
  9. It's a forum, not a tipping service, so it's up to each poster to choose whether to post them or not.
  10. Not adding anything for tomorrow, as 4 picks are carrying on. Disgusted by today, but what can you do.
  11. Back Frank Dancevic (+4) to beat Peter Polansky at 1.78 with Pinnacle Dancevic is never easy to break down and Polansky is bound to be tired after last week, so I'll take the underdog on the handicap line here. His serve should allow him to keep this close - and maybe even win it. Back Daniel Brands (+3.5) to beat Ernests Gulbis at 1.72 with Marathonbet Backing Brands again, as Gulbis doesn't seem to be too stable at the moment. Brands has the serve to frustrate him - and his good efforts in the qualifiers shouldn't be underestimated. Back Roberto Quiroz (+4.5) to beat Yuki Bhambri at 1.85 with Pinnacle I understand why Bhambri is the favourite here, but the line looks a touch off to me nonetheless. Quiroz is a decent player at the Challenger level and I believe he's got every chance of covering it.
  12. She's the rightful favourite, but I think the odds are completely correct really, especially with Bertens having more experience. Personally, I'm happy to stay away, but I'll be rooting for Bertens, as I have her to finish the season in the Top32 or so. No idea in Bucharest, I've stopped caring about that event after R1 .
  13. One early pick. Back Marco Chiudinelli (+6) to beat Paolo Lorenzi at 1.93 with Marathonbet There's obviously a big gap between the two quality-wise nowadays, but I'm not convinced that this is going to be an outright demolition. Not only is Chiudinelli going to play his heart out at home, but Lorenzi is also bound to be tired after that run in Umag (where he needed several MTOs).
