  1. Re: July 22 - July 28 Yeah, I don't really care much for outrights, I prefers matches, but good call. Boredo could certainly moonrollball his way to this title. Haha.
  2. Re: July 22 - July 28 I thought you were talking about the outright winner. lol
  3. Re: July 22 - July 28 ^Agreed. His to lose now.
  4. Re: July 22 - July 28 lol This is a shambolic performance by Berlocq.
  5. Re: July 22 - July 28 He's basically a very poor version of Ryan and he's mentally even weaker.
  6. Re: July 22 - July 28 http://www.croatiaopen.hr/hrv/live-stream You watching, Berlocq with the slow start.

  8. Re: July 22 - July 28 Excellent call on the Brands Homu! :D
  9. Re: July 22 - July 28 Daniela Hauntova to beat Urszula Radwanska 1.95 888 (5/10 points) She's the better player and I don't understand why she isn't 1.5? This isn't clay? Worth the bet.
  10. Re: July 22 - July 28 I agree on Berlocq, there's no one in the draw he potentially cannot beat "on his day". I wouldn't say Fognini is "unmotivated" per say, but certainly fatigued, keeping to that match intensity against decent claycourters match in match out will have taken it's tole on his mind and body. Concentration will probably decrease, even if he gets passed Klizan, it's likely to be quite difficult. I know a lot of fans are riding him cause he's won them a lot of money, but I think he has been sucked dry now and is ready to fade away. Ofcourse he'll be motivated to win, but do you really think he's going to go out there onto the court and be prepared to "draw blood" for his next victory after he's just won a 250 level and 500 level event? Anything now is merely a bonus, I'm sure. Same thing happened to Halep against Penneta and Mahut against Bester. Berlocq's probably more fresh than Fognini and yes for me, I see no one in the draw who he can't beat "on his day" as I said up above. It's a good shout. I think it's most likely the winner comes from Monfils/Montanes/Klizan(If he gets by Fognin) but Berlocq is definitely in there with a chance, agree with that.
  11. Re: July 22 - July 28 Backing the name aren't they, American at home.
  12. Re: July 22 - July 28 I usually have a rule in place to never back the player that's just won a tournament(Or had a good run in one) in the very next tournament against a grinder that gets a lot of balls back. Del Bonis isn't the most athletic player on tour either, he strikes the ball off both sides and I think he was always going to fade eventually. It's hard to pick yourself back up off the ground when you were so close away from a 500 level atp title. I actually faded Del Bonis today because of it Don't worry you'll survive, just watch for player's who might be depleted in all forms. Which brings me onto my next pick. Martin Klizan to beat Fabio Fognini 3.00 Betvictor (7/10 points) Watched Klizan against Mayer and although he blew a 4-1 lead and required a tie break in the third, I don't think Fognini will be able or be bothered with matching his intensity the way Mayer did. Klizan will have more drive to win and he's beaten Fognini on slow hardcourts at an ATP world tour final last year. With his forehand he can prove a tough task for anyone and Fognini's concentration is bound to be feigning now. If this was a week or so back I would have said Fognini but I think now is the moment where the winning run will come to a hault. If you're thinking of backing the Italian then all I'll say is get off the ride, you've been on it toomany times now kids, you're gonna fall sick.
  13. Re: July 22 - July 28 Yup, he was a bully on the challenger tour and he's as time passes on getting a grip of the atp main tour at this 250 level. He's a future top 30 player IMO.
  14. Re: July 22 - July 28 Excellent pick Banner, logical reasons and not forced at all. I followed in. Keep them coming. :ok
  15. Re: July 22 - July 28 Evgeny Donskoy to beat James Blake 2.00 Ladbrokes (6/10 points) Although Blake won last night I wasn't convinced at all, he made a very distincly average player in Smyczek cause him to sweat. Blake was very static on return of serve and not moving his feet at all, just simply swiping at the on every return, he was the same during rallies and if Smyczek had been a bit less passive he may have stood a chance as Blake was netting everything he had to hit on the run. Blake wasn't as good as he was earlier in the year playing in America. I hate to imagine how he'd cope against a player with a much better serve, consistent kick serve and an ability to make him move a lot more. He actually looked to be hobbling towards the end but thankfully enough for me, his low percentage game went right for him just at the right time. It'll be interesting to see how Blake returns the kick serve outwide to his single handed backhand on the advantage court as I feel he's probably prone to losing control of it.
  16. Re: July 22 - July 28 Sorry that was too thought provoking for meatheads not to switch off, should have known.
  17. Re: July 22 - July 28 Good hit on Dodig fader, game handicaps are better than 2-0's most of the time IMO.
  18. Re: July 22 - July 28 That is how you close a set out from 6-2 up in the breaker Williams, you muppet. Well done James, get in!
  19. Re: July 22 - July 28 Now blake blows a set point to Smychek. What a joke this is turning out to be.
  20. Re: July 22 - July 28 LOL! Best tip ever and it loses coz he choked, this guy is a moron.
