Quite hard to place bets with the odds released so late, but I fancy Sweden to beat Canada at 2.04 with PinnacleThe Ymer brothers could make for a good team and Canada only really has Pospisil as an elite guy.

Something to read for interest in the tie.

Seems like a great pick so far 👌 

Didn't know that Robin Soderling is the current Swedish Captain. Kinda touching to see him after so many years. The lingering bout of mononucleosis ended his career at such a young age (26 y.o). Poor guy.

Almost every American is half the player in Europe. Opelka has been crappy for a while now, had absolutely no chance against Brooksby for example.

I know he has been crappy for a while, I just thought that he was training hard in Turin to stop the bleeding. Also, Mardy Fish preferred the 36-year-old Isner over Tiafoe? I mean, really?

Career not the most important thing to Isner anymore

Recently, Isner became a father for the third time and his family is his top priority at this stage of his life. “There’s no doubt that tennis is secondary in my life right now, so we’ll see how it goes as my career winds down.

You definitely have to maximise your time – I don’t have as much time to put into my craft. But at my age, I don’t need to be on the court three hours a day," Isner admitted. “When I’m home I’ve tailored my schedule around the kids.

I drop them off at 8:30 and then boom – from 9:00-11:00 that’s my time to practise, then I can pick them up. I try to get my work in around their schedule."

Given how big an event this was supposed to be, I've found it very underwhelming personally. Too many big favorites and there's not home advantage to make the underdogs fight more and perhaps produce some upsets. Also hard to bet on things this way, so I've had only the one bet on Sweden so far. It's a different experience for sure and I think the BJK Cup in the women's did things better.

Agree. Very flat and sterile.
