Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January)

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

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
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
N Djokovic @ 1.83 Paddypower 2pts :hope

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.

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

Hi all thought I would add my thoughts I too have backed Na Li for obvious reasons as she won the previous tournament coming from behind to beat Clijsters so she is obviously playing well she is seeded 9th and has a good draw not meeting anyone with real quality until the quarter finals 4/10 confidence for me toot the 38/1 on betfair with a view to lay of later in the tournament. 3 pts on Na Li - 38/1 - Betfair
Well done all who made a profit from this tournament - made just the one bet see above and layed it off before the semi's would have won a lot more if Na Li would have won it and was looking good after the first set - still more than pleased with the 72 point profit I won.:clap Keep up the good work all.

Re: Tennis - The Australian Open (17-30 January) Knittel just won the tournament in Germany, should have stuck with him:wall Sport Tennis Event Harrison v Kuznetsov Selection Harrison -1.5 Strength 10/10 Date 30/01/2011 Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 2.10 Reasoning Both guys come through tough 3 set matches yesterday but I expect Harrison to win 2-0. He's a much more talented player and has a higher level. He's played really well this week and should be looking at a better start today after going down a double break yesterday. Kuznetsov is quite average, serves pretty good, but I expect Harrison to take care of him.
