bad luck..both semis went 5 sets...tsonga/djokovic was a classic...tsonga had 4 match points and couldn't convert any of them...djokovic ran away with it in the 5th 6-1 and i lost the handicap by half a game, one of the worst handicap losses ever...you never expect a match to go 5 and lose a dog handicap

federer came back from 2 sets down to delpo and we have a rematch of the semi last year, which was djokovic's last loss at a grand slam

i will go with murray tomorrow...i know about ferrer's clay exploits but i am surpirsed by this line...murray played well after the first vs gasquet

nadal should beat almagro


Murray +170 & +3.5 games +120 vs Ferrer  (quarters)

Good luck Taz

Murray has screwed me so many times in the quarters onward it is hard to trust him. However, he was absolutely dominate last match after the first set. Can he keep it up? We shall see.

thanks fellas

after a decent start to the French, it looks like a losing French and year for me in tennis

i took Nadal -7.5 games and to win 3 sets to 0 in the early semi...

in the late semi i will play some Fed early and maybe take Djokovic in play if he becomes a dog

Federer +170 and +4 games vs Djokovic (French Semis)

Gery Weber Quarters:

Raonic +285

Federer not to win 2 sets to 0 -105

 

i also played kohlschreiber +4.5 and +600 vs nadal and he is up in the first set

it is very tough to go from clay to grass within 3 days which is what nadal is trying to do...he just won the french on monday and is playing on grass 2 days later...federer had to play the semis on friday while raonic presumably has been training on grass since he was knocked out by monaco

Wimbledon Semis:

Federer Djokovic...djokovic heavily favored, but first time meeting on grass...if federer is to win another slam, it will be here

Murray Tsonga...i'm on the bottom half to win the tournament, think murray gets to his first wimbledon final here

took the day off to trade these matches, should be a sick wimbledon semis


Federer +220 vs Djokovic

Murray to win Wimbledon +450

fed beat nole...fed had played nole 26 times and never on grass until the semis of wimbledon 2012....fed has never played murray on any other surface other than hard courts in their career, which murray leads 8-7


unbelievably fed can take over number 1 and tie sampras for consecutive weeks at number 1 by beating murray in the final.... or murray gets a wimbledon title, something a british player has not done in 70+ years

if you have murray futured to win wimbledon, as i do, i would put some on fed prematch to assume no liability but that is all i would not green out...because if you have made no bet before the title, i love murray at these odds of +175 to +185...murray will get a ton more balls back than djokovic did in the semis...murray moves much better on grass than djokovic....fed will have to paint lines on the serve as he did in the semis to beat murray...i think fed will make too many errors in the end..could be an epic match, seats going for $40k

this could be the time for murray, should be a good match to trade

Murray +4.5 games -110 vs Federer

lendl never won wimbledon despite getting to the finals a couple times, murray could do it for him

fed is the greatest player of all time, he was born to play tennis...he will go out and play some tennis that people marvel at (enjoy fed, we will never see anybody like him our lifetime) but he has not been able to back up his big wins with another (he hasn't won a slam since aussie 2010)

murray is returning better than anybody this tournament and his first serve percentage is impressive

hi guys...been busy lately, haven't been around

went to toronto last week..saw djokovic vs haas in grandstand; pretty cool getting so close to the action as grandstand you are right on top of the players compared to stadium court

already late today as the match has gone off but i took nalbandian to beat haas...haas has played so much tennis recently as he got to the final 2 weeks ago, then lost last week in the quarters

on a similar note, i will take raonic to beat gasquet tonight...gasquet looked gassed vs djokovic in the final, can't see him beating raonic 

Raonic -140 vs Gasquet (Cincii 1st round)

Raonic wins in straights...could've got him at plus money before the match went off

i don't think there is any way that nole can win cincii after winning toronto and coming from london...i would bet against him every match

nadal has pulled out of the us open

Quarters Cincinnati:

1st match 11 am: Chardy +225 vs Delpo 

2nd match 1 pm: Cilic +625 & +5.5 games v Djokovic

3rd match 3pm: Raonic -160 vs Wawrinka

4th match 7pm: Fish +625 & +4.5 games vs Federer

delpo would usually crush chardy but delpo is not hitting his bh and chardy won in straights getting here

as i mentioned above, i'll bet against nole going forward because he has played a ton of tennis and i think a long match could take him out

don't like the line but raonic looks good, will play him small b/c i'm a homer

think fish/fed could be a great match

will be working, then out so won't be able to watch any of the quarters unfortunately...but i'm trading the weekend

US Open Quarters:

i think berdych stands a chance vs federer...he has beaten him at wimbledon, he was up 2 sets to 0 at him in australia a few years back...berdych is 1 guy that if he is on can hit right through fed...i don't think he wins this match but he i think it will be closer than the odds suggest

Berdych +5.5 games (-110) vs Federer

also playing Berdych +450

berdych wins in 4 cashing the handicap and +450

i think tipsarevic stands a good chance vs ferrer today..he does have a disadvantage in that he has had to be on court 3 days in a row because of the rain..this match will have long drawn out rallies and could very well be a 5 setter

in the evening match, i expect djokovic to roll but i will watch and look to put a wager in play

Tipsarevic +5 games (-110) vs Ferrer

also playing Tipsarevic +240

hi Retburj

tipsarevic covers the handicap easily, taking it to the a 5th set tiebreak...there were some good points in the match...any average trader should have made coin in that match taking tips at +200 prematch and then taking ferrer +200 when tips went up 2 sets to 1

djokovic rolled as we thought...there were some sick points in the match, especially in the 2nd set as jmdp was hitting some huge shots but djokovic's defense was absolutely incredible, i have never seen anything like it...nadal can't play d like nole

as for the semis, there is value in taking berdych prematch at +200 and then taking murray at some point in the match at +200 if he is down a set or 2...should be a great match and i am looking forward to it..i have murray to win the tournament so i may play berdych prematch, i will let you guys decide on who to play there

djokovic will roll ferrer...enjoy the semis:
