French Open livescore thread

Recommended Posts

Re: French Open livescore thread Does anyone think Simon is throwing this match? He's not managed one break point and has allowed Soderling to make all four. Game looks really, really flat and even the crowd seem to sense something isn't right...

On additional note @ 5-3 Soderling I took him 18.5 unders - Even money - £20, ecstatic I did now.

That's not true though. Simon has caused plenty of problems for plenty of players on the tour and this year he has been playing quite well. Soderling has done nothing in this game to warrant the scoreline. It's the way that the crowd are acting as well, as if it's a foregone conclusion from really early. This is a Frenchman who used to be number 6 in the world playing to get into the last eight of his home tournament. If this was a horse race there'd be an investigation.

Hmmm, well I can't really remember many games in which Simon attacked an opponent, counter attacked, yes, but he's never really ever taken the initiative, may be once against Nadal a few years back on hard, but I can't recall any others. Perhaps Soderling's groundies are just too much for him to counter? Simon doesn't strike me as the kind of character that would be drawn into all of that match fixing malarky, but yeah ofcourse, who knows? (Can never be too sure)

Re: French Open livescore thread i agree this is horrific. Soderling is having a shocker, Nadal looks average never thought a game between ex-finalists could be an error fest.

Soderling's trying to throw his lead away but Simon won't let him :lol
LOL! I had to place a huge amount on him to bag the set @ 5-5 just to break even on that previous bet. Soderling is a bundle of nerves, never gambling on him again.

Re: French Open livescore thread Murray isn't losing this. I'm just waiting for a price around 1.7/1.8 to back him. Kind of wanted Troicki to break him then to get that price. Not sure if we'll see that figure again in the match

Are you sure hes not losing this? He's about to lose the second set to go 2-0 down?

Re: French Open livescore thread Murray's always been a punter's nightmare...kinda like Liverpool in soccer!! When you expect them to lose,they usually win and put up a really good display...and you expect them to win and they are favourites,they usually lose!!

Re: French Open livescore thread

I am so glad I put semi big stakes on it to both go to 5 sets and Murray to win. 8/11 for 5 sets and 2/1 for Murray to win.
Did you back Troicki initially?
