Cheers, was just about to do that myself! :ok

On another note, if the tennis association is fair, they should default Djokovic for all his antics today. So pathetic - and he's supposed to be the number one. Leaving the court without an official umpire call is one thing, leaving the stadium is something else entirely.

Edit: Apparently I'm not alone thinking this, most of the commentators I've heard think that it was ridiculous to suspend the play for the day so early. Really hoping Thiem copes with the situations and wins for fairness sake.

I can't understand why Vondrousova should be the outsider tomorrow. Barty was not good today and the conditions here don't suit her. Vondrousova has beaten the much tougher players than Barty and to me she's the better clay court player.

Vondrousova @ 2.40 Pinnacle

10/10

Interesting. Barty has played 4 american players (Collins, Kenin, Keys and Anisimova). All of them have hard courts as their favorite surface so the only "clay" courter that she has played here is Petko.. She has dropped 2 sets (Kenin and Anisimova). W/L record on clay: 45-24

Vondrousova has played against Potapova, Carla Suárez (pure claycourter), Sevastova (W/L record of 230-95 on clay), Martic (the player with most wins on clay this season) and Konta (not a claycourter but the match she played against Stephens was absolutely amazing..). All of them in straight sets! W/L record on clay: 72-19

I repeat what i say for the Anisimova-Barty match, the pressure will be on Barty again (she lost the first set when she was 5-1, 15-40..!). Vondrousova is the youngest player, i have not seen her playing nervous (her comeback against Martic in the first set was so good) and like you said, she's a very good claycourter.

I don't know if i will bet on this match but if finally I do this will be my bet for sure.

She did get really nervous at one point in the second set against Martic when she was on serve, produced a double fault with both attempts almost bouncing on her own half. Even admitted it in an interview, but she seemed to do well after that and today. I'd certainly agree that Barty should feel more pressure.

Yep, thats true, i remember that. I can't imagine any player destroying the other (both have been playing so well and have a lot of variety) but taking a look at the opponents that they had looks like Vondrousova's way was tougher.

As I noticed, Barty-fart, plays like a boy, and personally I am not sure if she is a girl or a boy. In any case, he/she is the most ugly ever in the WTA tour. 

Your posting is a joke and i hope you will be banned from this forum for being such an idiot.

Marius Copil to beat Dan Evans at 2.63 with Pinnacle

I've checked Dans grass statistics and he's 14-11 on grass on the challenger tour. Marius is 12-5 on grass on the challenger tour. They have met once before in 2016 and it's was on grass in Surbiton and Marius won easily in straight sets. Marius haven't droped a set all week and toyed with Matt Ebden yesterday. He's better than Dan on grass and should have more than a decent chance of winning this matchup again.

I've got Evans as 17-12 in challengers on the grass, going all the way back to 2007, all Nottingham, Surbiton and two Manchester matches. 

And in their first meeting Evans took 0/5 break points. He needs to do better than that to win. I've attached a spreadsheet screenshot of his grass results for you.

Copil is also a more impressive 15-5 on grass court challengers. I've added his results for you too.

Davidovich Fokina to beat Mahut at 2.75 with Unibet

Fokina won the 2017 Wimbledon boys singles title without dropping a set, so he can be a dangerous player on this surface. He has improved his game a lot in recent months and i think that he has a good chance of winning here. Mahut has not performed very well in the past 2 years on grass, although with his service he should feel comfortable on the green surface. I expect to be little tired after RG and i think that the Spaniard will win here.

Vondrousova to beat Barty - 2.52 with Betfair

Barty had some nervous moments in the last match, leading 5-0 and losing the first set and although she's a good fighter, she will no doubt have some more worries in the final. 

Vondrousova has had less wobbles, hasn't dropped a set against tough players and I think she should be shorter than 2.52. 

I'm on.

Yen-Hsun Lu, Yuichi Sugita and Dudi Sela are notorious grasscourt specialists and losing to them is no shame for Marius Copil so he's done quite well on the grasscourts over the years the romanian.

As I write, it's 5-5 in the match between Dan Evans and Marius Copil and one break each. A tie-break is probably looming and now comes the rain so match suspended for awhile. Likely until tonight because it's supposed to rain until 6 o'clock pm today so I'm surprised they got any matches going.

Novak Djokovic/Dominic Thiem over 4.5 set at 3.30 with betsson

I fully belive this bet is going to come in after seeing both playing their best superb tennis today. There just was no stopping either of them from winning in straight sets and there should be nothing stopping them from going the distance tomorrow.

Rain also in Paris but I don't care since I've already got paid for this bet :cow

So what happened? The only new info that I've found is that Thiem might've agreed during the suspension. That would take some blame off Djokovic, but I would still have harsh words for him leaving the court without an official call during the third set and for the organizers to suspend the play for the day.

From BBC: Djokovic and Thiem left the court at about 16:45 BST, with the decision to cancel play for the day taken about 40 minutes later. At that stage there was bright sunshine and clear sky over Roland Garros, which lasted for about another 50 minutes before dark clouds returned. However, the expected rain did not reappear until around 18:40 BST.

Talked to French Open tournament director Guy Forget, who confirmed play was called because of rain and high-wind forecast. Said Djokovic & Thiem informed together of decision by referee. "People thought Novak left, and that is why we canceled the matches, which is nonsense"

Courier on Djokovic: "There is no way he would disrespect the tournament and leave before he knew, he probably just knew before we did."


Barbara Schett:Unfortunately a wrong information was passed on to me during the show. Novak and Dominic left the courts after the referee told them play was postponed. I truly apologize for that and i will officially correct it tomorrow!

Marketa Vondrousova to beat (-1,5 Sets) Ashleigh Barty at 4.20 with 888

Well, finally i decided to risk and try to find some big odds for this one so 2-0 for the non favorite player. The reasons are already explained in previous pages. Vondrousova feels more comfortable on clay than Barty, she has played tougher opponents, better W/L record on this surface, she has not dropped any set yet.. Lets see.

Don't get me wrong - Thiem was a better player and fully deserved to win. Kudos to that! :ok

I'm just amazed at how Djokovic always has to land the villian part with some.

So you don't think that his antics were at least a bit hilarious yesterday?

I wouldn't call them hilarious. He was more nervous because of the ugly conditions i would say.

Fair enough. Federer and Nadal had a lot of wind as well though and no complaints, that's what made Djokovic stand out I guess, especially since Thiem didn't seem to care.
