Well, let's see. Not too hopeful about Isner anymore, but stranger things have happened (Anderson today, for example). Will be in a slight plus for the tournament regardless of the result, but not sure how many more bets there are going to be with only a couple of matches left. Nice to see both Moutet and Ymer winning in Bastad today though, still some hope there!

Tom Jomby to beat Tom Fawcett at 2.75 with bet365

I'm having trouble seeing Tom Jomby going out after he's clinically sent out Reilly Opelka. This Winnetka challenger is full of upsets but having Jomby as underdog to wild card Tom Fawcett is something I can't understand. 27 year old Tom Jomby playing at protected ranking with current ranking 501 and career high 337 achieved 2015 meets Tom Fawcett 22 year old wild card ranked 764 and career high 725 achieved in april this season after a successfull winter. With semifinal in Calabasas F8 futures losing to Marcos Giron and before that qualifying for Newport challenger after beating Jason Jung, Chris Eubanks and Marcos Giron and at the time Eubanks were ranked 323 and Jung 235. Now both are or have been top 200 since Eubanks have fallen a few spots off his career high 183. But even though Fawcett has been on the move this season I have to try a bet on Jomby. Also Fawcett is coached by experienced former ATP player Paul Goldstein with 11 hardcourt challenger titles and career high 65 in 2006 and 85 wins and 115 loses on the regular tour.

What are the thoughts from Winnetka and WInnipeg tonight? If anyone has any suggestions or opinions please share.

I've gone for a treble from Winnetka and Winnipeg tonight with a local bookie. In Winnipeg: Yunseong Chung at 2.50 who meets Go Soeda. In Winnetka: Tommy Paul/Dayne Kelly under 21.5 games at 1.80, Mitchell Krueger -1.5 sets at 2.20 and he meets Collin Altamirano. I don't think any of the bets are particularly safe so please give me some opinions. I'd be happy to land this treble so I want to feel a bit more sure about it.

Yunseong Chung is 20 years old and comes from 2 straight hardcourt ITF futures titles and registers at his career high ranking 369. He hasn't faced a matchpoint in 10 matches. His opponent Go Soeda is 33 years old and registers at rank 178 and comes from having lost in the Wimbledon qualies 2nd round to Jurgen Melzer. No biggie deal about that. In April he reached a challenger semi on carpet other than that he hasn't gone past the quarters in any tournament. His worst loss have been to no.674 Blake Ellis in Kyoto challenger quarters. Strange loss that one and another quarter loss to Yasutaka Uchiyama the week after. Go is not having the best of seasons while the korean Yunseong is on the rise so he might have a chance on the upset.

Tommy Paul should easily take out the aussie Dayne Kelly who I don't rate at all but I'm still worried Tommy can mess things up.

Mitchell Krueger ranked 220 comes from Wimbledon qualies where he lost to Reilly Opelka in 3. His opponent Collin Altamirano ranked 490 have qualified for Winnetka and won his last 4 matches in straight sets and his career high is 488. Mitchell had problems in his last 2 rounds but won in 3 both times and beat Marcos Giron and JC Aragone, players higher ranked than Collin. Now Collin comes in with some good momentum into this but it can still very well end in straight sets to Mitchell but Collin upset Darian King ranked 160 in his last match in straight sets but Darian has no form as far as I know. Collin can make life difficult for Mitchell but It still doesn't feel wrong to pick the favourite to win this in 2. Mitchell should win in 2.

Those are my thoughts about these 3 matches but it could easily end with me being wrong on every bet. Annoying not to be at least somewhat sure about the outcome.

One quick comment. I just do not think that it makes sense opposing Collin the way you have decided to go about it.  He has a better win record than Krueger this year regardless of where those wins were achieved. Another thing is that the outcome of any match is not like tomatoes that you can weigh on a scale and get specific results. Giron and Aragon being ranked higher than Collin means nothing in terms of how Collin is going to match up with Krueger. Krueger's price @ 1/2 on the face of it is risky enough even thinking of win purposes only. He has also played 2 three setters in his last two matches. Collins should really being on a high here in my honest opinion and looks like the one that should really be backed to win a set. What do I know1 I could still be wrong. Good luck!!!

No idea on those unfortunately, I can't even keep track of Wimbledon to be honest :loon, wanted to watch some of the doubles in full but no luck. Good luck if you get on those picks, however!

Novak Djokovic to beat Rafael Nadal at 1.94 with Unibet

I would really like to have some great analytical insight on this match-up, but I'm afraid that so much has been said about it over the years that I can't really add anything. The surface should help Djokovic slightly, everyone can see that, but I also think that he's in a slightly better place mentally, more match fit and has already had tougher tests on grass. Nadal had exactly one thanks to his cakewalk draw and he nearly lost, so chances are that he will now. Not a lock by any means, but I'd have Djokovic at 1.80 here given my point of view.

I just hope Collin matches up badly against Mitchell but it's hard to know how a match like this one can go since these players are so up and down. So it's a big risk I've taken there. But there's no big money involved either but problem is I've got no money on the local bookie account if I lose since my last money there went on Jelena Ostapenko/Angelique Kerber over 21.5 games. So it would help if I get that challenger treble correct so I can keep on betting without making any deposits. I should have gone on Mikael Ymer today though but didn't dare to belive he could win but he had a nice price.

John Isner to beat Kevin Anderson at 1.90 with bet365

Big John owns an 8-3 head-to-head record in this matchup and has won the last 5 matches. Last one in 2015 and now Kevin needs to recharge his batteries with only one day to rest from his epic King of grass win. Gonna be tough and he won't get as many returns back in this match as he did in his last and that we all know. The bigger serve wins this match and that's the serve of Big John who is yet to be broken. He can lose a tie-break but we all know he doesn't drop his serve too easily and that's the major factor when I'm looking at this bet. There's every chance that Big Johns serve will be too mutch for Kevin.

Only rarely nowadays, I've got some confidence problems with them after the previous season :\.

Well I know @losingpunter placed a bet on Jomby since he told us he did and that's nice that someone more than I won. We'll see how it goes with my challenger treble tonight. But one thing I got to wonder czech is why you chose to bet on a rivalry like this between Rafa and Djoker. I personally don't see anything more than a coinflip there but I see something real attractive in betting on Big John. It's not to late to bet on Big John to. I hope both bets come in.

Is there nobody but me who dares to bet on the challengers? I got Tom Jomby quite right last time at least.

Lost a bit of money on challengers. The results seem  a bit random so I avoid. Also problem is they are rarely on TV etc...I can only base my decision based on what I see from apps like Flashscore, but that doesn't seem to work.

We'll challengers is always very risky to bet on. We'll see how it goes with my bets this time.

Well, to each his own I guess. If we all win, even better.

Mikael Ymer to beat Pedro Martinez at 1.72 with bet365

Finally a great chance for Mikael to be in his first challenger final and I think he will make it. He gets a lot of balls in play and returns clever and he's for sure fired up to be in his first challenger final at home. He did good enough for me in the quarterfinal to justify this bet.

Well Collin Altamirano proved to be to tough, I'm not surprised and it was not a safe bet, just one of my very bad bets because of lack of options but I could have taken Mikael Ymer instead but no I had to go for crap Krueger even though I know he sucks and I knew Altamirano is on a good streak but I placed the bet before I even checked on Altamiranos last matches. Like I said, only a bad bet nothing more and I'm not surprised I was wrong since I often do bad choices. From Tom Jomby to Mitchell Krueger, I don't know what I'm doing sometimes.

Penny For A Thought

I think people really need to know what tipping is about before getting involved in it. In its full and most practical definition, it is about extricating vital information from the pool of information and ideas constantly flooding into your head with the aim of poluting your clear line of thought. Most tipsters and punters will normally hear voices regularly. The fact is this: most of those voices you will hear, especially the loud ones that immediately prompt you into action are deceptive and wrong. They have the effect of derailing your thoughts and chaining you into a frustrating demonic sequence of hopelessness. The problem with some people on here is that they most times get carried away with the excitement and potential of that initial deceptive thought and try to pass them on as certified facts. Good tipping is not about publishing a diary of your thoughts but about pruning those thoughts in a bid to extricate the thought of the diary

Those who have already been down this road and who can relate to what I am saying will realise that there is a certain invisible force that comes with these deceptive thoughts that can sometimes enslave you to a belief system till you suddenly realise at the end that you have been manipulated by forces unknown. Everyone's diary is similar! interpreting and passing on that information comes with experience. Experience can only come from the logbook in wells of your battling spirit. These days i am more apt to sense winners and losers simply from odds movement and sheer spiritual perception. This has always been a deep and complicated indulgence despite the pretty and superficial face of the indulgence

Every year and at different times of the season we see people come and go on this forum. The majority of them extinguished and overpowered by a process that they can never penetrate or get to grips with, arrested by the prevailing question of how to fight the invisible enemy, they cave in. When you constantly share every thought that comes into your head without caution, you finally find yourself becoming a joker and a glorious fool and suddenly find the need to disappear as people pay you less attention. It is for those reasons that the main members of this forum are still here. They take time to preserve that spirit of the desire to tip. They nourish it and treat it wisely chosing when and when not to write.

Tipping is so infectious especially to the unsuspecting reader. They will most times be attracted to the wrong tips than the right tips. For example if the forum has say six tips put up and one was wrong, 90% of visitors would have played that wrong one. Every one has to be professional and circumspect thinking of others before publishing anything. No one says you must publish a tip daily. Sometimes just pass through and look and appreciate reading the tips of others. Find something else to feed your ego aside causing the misery of others. We need to collectively come together to strive for more credibility!!!
