Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January)

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January)

Sport Tennis Event Australian Open Women's Outright Selection Na Li (Each-way) Strength 1/10 Date 29/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price Coral @ 21.00 Reasoning Australian Open - This is a lucky dip really. Na Li is a good player, and like many other tennis players in the women's game, is capable of winning a Grand Slam if they can get some consistency for just two weeks. There's a couple of candidates as an fringe contender bet, but I think Na Li has the most value even though I think Sam Stosur has a chance in front of her home crowd. I'm picking Na Li to cause a slight surprise and win her first Grand Slam. Good luck!
Worth a couple of :beer I guess... An interesting and competitive final, with Li's inexperience showing by letting a few pedantic things rattle her. Hopefully Djokovic can bring in the dough tomorrow ;)

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Sport Tennis Event Bozoljac v Knittel Selection Bozoljac Strength 10/10 Date 29/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price Victor Chandler @ 1.85 Reasoning Going against Knittel this time, even though he won for me yesterday. I just think Bozoljac is better, and is in good form. He's got good wins this week over Kamke and Niland. He's also still in the doubles so clearly having a good week. Think he's got more heat than Knittel and should be a shorter price. The price is coming down in some places so take this one.

Clijsters (BEL) vs Li-Na (CHN) Clijsters -3.5 @Pinnacle 1' date=752 LOSS Clijsters (BEL) vs Li-Na (CHN) Clijsters to win 2-0 @Pinnacle 1,971 LOSS Djokovic (SRB) vs Murray (GBR) Djokovic @Pinnacle 1,714 pending
Kim not in shape in the 1st set, throwing away 2-0 lead in the very start of the match. Had to put loads LIVE on her to win outright after the second set to get me out of this mess :-( Let's hope Djoko will not let me down tomorrow.

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Djokovic To BT Murray 1.73 Betfair Was impressed watching Djokovic against Federer on Thursday,If he brings the same form to the court tomorrow he is looking very much the stronger player. Murray needs to improve on breaking his opponents if he is to ever triumph something which I think gives Djokovic the upper hand. Expecting to see a battle tomorrow of probably 4 sets with Djokovic coming through the winner.

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January)

Hi guys i have been betting on quite few matches in the late stages of the tournament and i have been in profit it seems nearly every bet i do i win money when in the first week i was not winning as much it seems the quarter finals onwards i seem to do better in winning money than losing it do you guys manage to win more in the latter stages when you know how the players are playing which i feel is a big advantage on winning big i suppose it is a lot easier when you know which players have a chance of winning
well , first of all, congrats on having a good second week. for me, I always do much better in the first week, as generally because there are more matches ...there are more opportunities and more chances the bookies might make a mistake. In fact, i make most of my profit in the qualifying stages. I think when it comes to the latter stages of the tournaments the bookies are more familiar with the players and their form so the prices are generally right. But there are plenty of punters who prefer the latter stages of tournaments too so I guess it just comes down to whether you fancy a bet....JUST GO FOR IT.

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) DANIEL BRANDS TO BEAT HUTA- GALUNG AT 4-6 BET365 2 POINTS. i SAW A BIT OF BRANDS YESTERDAY, AND I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH HIM BEATING MICHAEL BERRER. hE SERVED REALLY WELL AND WAS SOLID IN THE CLUTCH MOMENTS. HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S FINDING HIS FORM AGAIN...THE SORT OF FORM THAT TOOK HIM TO THE WIMBLEDON 3RD ROUND LAST YEAR...AND THAT FORM SHOULD BE FAR TOO GOOD FOR CHALLENGERVETERAN GALUNG WHO PREFERS FAST INDOORS AND GRASS COURTS BUT STILL IS A LEVEL BELOW WHAT BRANDS IS CAPABLE OF. I THINK BRANDS IS SUCH AN INVITING PRICE AS OVER THE LAST FEW ONTHS HIS FORM HAS BEEN HORRIBLE SO I THINK IT'S TIME TO TAKE ADVANTAGE WHILE WE STILL CAN NOW I also fancy a small punt on djokovic to hit more double faults than murray in the final...both are probably likely to hit a few...but djokovic is renowned for having a shaky second serve in pressure moments and he is much more likely to go on a mini-run of doubles ...like to in a game. Djokovic just generally hits far more double faults than the top players and though murray is likely to get tight at some stage too... the statistics suggest djokovic will hit more. in 3 sets djokovic hit 5 doubles against federer while in 4 sets murray hit 3 against ferrer. worth a small punt

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January)

Na Li vs Kim Clijsters over 21.5 games 5/6 skybet well this is the final and finals should be close matches i suppose each player is on the top of their game especially Li so im going with the overs bet because i feel that the sets will be close an extra bet i think 7-5 in the first set for clijsters
an overs bet that came through in the end looks like i seem to do better in the womens than the men

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Sport Tennis Event Acasuso v Romboli Selection Acasuso -3.5 games Strength 10/10 Date 29/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price Nordicbet @ 1.90 Reasoning Acasuso is looking good this week winning his matches very comfortably. He's a class above the rest of this field and this should be another comfortable win. Romboli has had a tough week having come from qualifying and this looks like the end of the road. Expect an easy win here. Sport Tennis Event Prodon v El Amrani Selection Prodon Strength 10/10 Date 29/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price William Hill @ 1.70 Reasoning Prodon is a solid guy, lot of experience, and got a good win over Souza yesterday. El Amrani I don't like, got a good win over Zeballos earlier in the week but serves a lot of double faults. Think Prodon is the better player and should take care of this.

Cheers mate, took it with a decent size stake. Little worried in the second set but Brands recovered the break....:) Also got United at near 3/1 in-play vs Southampton at 1-0 down....not sure what the bookies were thinking there.

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Prodon wins easily but Acasuso looks like a tank job. Sport Tennis Event Harrison v Russell Selection Harrison Strength 10/10 Date 29/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price William Hill @ 1.95 Reasoning Harrison looks worth a bet later tonight. He's a talented kid and making good progress. He's been very solid this week, yet to drop a set and a decent win last round over Sweeting. Russell at the other end of the scale, older guy and a grinder. He does well enough and has made a decent career, but doesn't have the game of Harrison. Harrison on form and should take him, and should be a shorter price than this.

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Andy Murray vs Novak Djokovic over 39.5 games 8/11 skybet i think that this final will be very close with very few break points because these players are evenly matched with one playing a little better than the other with him beating federer also he is more experienced in finals of grand slams other bets djokovic first set 7-5 14/1 skybet and murray most aces 8/15 skybet hope you get lucky

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Murray A.- Djokovic N. Selection Djokovic N. Strength 10/10 Date 30/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 1.70 I rate Djokovic as a big favourite here, in this match Nole is for me just a player with advantages. psychological advantage stability in key moments better condition Well both are in the finals but Djokovic really impressed with the game, he did fantastic job a great performance against Roger & Berydch and with full confidence is entering into this match. On the other side Murray is under a lot of pressure because he heavent won any of Grand Slams and last British champion in Australia was on 1934.Also in this road to the final Murray spent a lot more energy then Djokovic,he had extremly tough fight against Ferrer and Dolgopolov and if this match goes in 4 sets or over,fitness could be a serious issue. Besides i saw Murray with a grimace on his face having problems with foot (knee) I dont know what kind of injury is in question or if its even serious one but it certainly left an impression on me. In the end Djokovic to win his second Grand Slam in career!

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) This is terrific EVERYONE is backing Djokovic, just what andy needs, i will just say one point, Just because you are fit and have had an easy route to the final, doesnt mean you wont feel the heat, i dont understand how people can get this misconception, Heat exhaustion has nothing to do with your fitness level.. novak has had numerous problems time and time again in the heat, its already very warm at 9.20am here i expect much of the same..

The h2h stats would point to this being a good pick as well. In 6 h2h matches Djokovic hits more double faults in 5 out of 6 matches.
Most Double Faults

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Ive said my bit, am one of the minority as aMurray backers but murray at $2.40 at bet365.com is definitely a play for me 10/10. Imho as good as novak has been playing too much has been made of that 3-0 victory over Fed, and the rest of the draw has been very kind, however nearly trailed 2 sets to Dodig, apart from that yes he has looked very good, but has he been tested? has his back been against the wall?? if the heat sets in and hes a set down (which he hasnt faced will his mind fall apart and his serve crumble.. its a big possibility) Murray was super in demolishing, Melzer whos had a terrific past 12 months , solid enough against very tricky opponent in dolgo. and faced backs against the wall stuff against Ferrer, he was really tested. ( i have read on a few interviews that nadal played at around 50% which is complete bollux, ferrer had an outstanding tourny. In previous times murray may have retired against ferrer or dropped his head, and mentally lost, imho that match was PERFECT prep for the final, get the game where you make a shit load of errors out of the way and serve at a low first % but get much needed time in the night session. For those of us, who have wanted to pursue a sporting career just like me to be told you cant do this again, when you sacrifice everything, you know how much it hurts, the pain andy has been through is evident, the many sleepless nights he would of had, since last years final, the media tarnishing his name, calling him another failure, i really believe he will be that driven of all the countless hours he has trained and worked to improve to seize this opportunity and i think this will be a career defining moment for the Scot!

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Too good Novak..............:notworthy Don't think he even really had to play great to be honest, but he was still far superior. Not sure what Murray can take from this.

That was a really grim performance from Andy. Thought Nole was outstanding when he needed be but Murray mentally went AWOL for long periods of the match. The second set in particular was a killer. The best man won, and it caps off Djokovic's complete turnaround from 18 months ago, when he was in the doldrums. Cracking betting event chaps, most of us in good profit for the two weeks. Pleasure spending it with you all :ok

Yes very solid week for you mate congrats as usual:clap nole did enough but andy rarely tested him, i think this will affect his future for the worst he is mentally inept, it just shows however good you might be playing wise (unless you are mentally stable, and have enormous self belief) you will never succeed at the highest level.
