Bettor loses 100,000 euros on Federer Wimbledon upset

If you thought things were bad for Roger Federer yesterday when he made his earliest exit at a grand slam in a decade, think of the guy who lost 100,000 euros while attempting to win a mere profit of 1,000.

Graham Sharpe, media relations director for William Hill in London, Tweeted this Thursday:

Federer's 6-7, 7-6, 7-5, 7-6 loss to 116th-ranked Sergiy Stakhovsky ended his streak of 36 straight quarterfinals appearances in grand slams.

The loss came on perhaps the whackiest day in Wimbledon history where seven former No. 1's fell. Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal are two others who lost this week at 1-to-100 odds.

There are sure bets in sports, also know as arbitrages. Unfortunately, Federer was not a sure bet.

1/100 odds, WOW! The reward is so small. This person believes in sure things. There are no sure bets in sports. Anything can happen and here is another example. Another lesson to be learned for all of us.
