200 to 1 on to win this semi.
where do i palce a bet?
maybe sue barker made a mistake. thats what she said.
out of order
really confused then. its right, a Â£200 bet for federer to win gets a Â£1 return.
=1/200 other guy in shorts = 20/1.
but betting on individual serves is best. federer always breaks, yet the odds for him to break the other guys serve is always better than even. then he barely loses a match on his serve, so betting correct score is always good.
same as betting on roddicks serve, especially in the early stages of any tournament and on clay.
He's right, that was scary. Are you the john mccrick of the site? Well if he did tennis instead of horseys.
10000 times better looking.
and horses are boring, i only bet on football and tennis. but not alot of money.
on evidence of my life so far I feel it should remain a boasting fact.
cant continue to not gamble...
I don't I tell you.
As long as you don't end up like those rank old men down in Ladbrokes I think a flutter isn't so bad now and then. As long as it's not something wimpy like who's going to win Big Brother.
On another note Amelie Mauresmo is it Amelie or Ameline? Anyway she's like a man. Reminds me of when Pierce bulked up and there was a furore over other more feminine female players not having as much as her.
wouldnt bet on reality tv cos its all a fix. i dont know the womans players that well, but just before sue barker and co were complaining about the feminine grunting and whether it should be banned or not.
UUHHHHHHHHHHH COME ON!
exactly what she does. I like her though, she's got chutzpah.
Her game against Flavia Pennetta was real vfm
year. Along with the 'should they get paid the same as the chaps' one.
It's all there is to talk about in the women's game, as the same four people keep bloody winning everything *massive generalisation*
When they say who's won the tournament there's always someone with four consecutive wins. I really loved the year Goran won. I was supporting him all the way.
I have to say if you'd seen Pennetta vs Sharapova you'd have liked that one. Pennetta didn't let the game go easily.
I find the men's game interesting but less so than when Agassi, Becker and Sampras were around.
I'd say my favourite Male players were Roddick and Nadal.
Least favourite - Hewitt
old man's doubles? Yawn. I'd like them to show the junior finals or give the junior's some coverage.
So you'd have to put Â£1000 on to get Â£5 back:0:0:0
people bet there entire mortgages on odds like this.
Yup that is correct.
And is actually really really silly.
in wimbledon in the last however many he's won.
not a stupid bet
do you hope wins or do you care?
I'm sort of rooting for Nadal but I like Baghdhatis aswell. Still they're massively the underdogs against Federer so no wonder those are the odds. He's played like a man on fire.
Is it me or is Jimmy Connors very Gee whizz all american?
I liked Venus and Bryan's style in the doubles because the match they had yesterday wasn't easy, raw power and pace won it for them.
Also so long Agassi.
but i liek bagdhatis' style
Contreversial thing to say now but the England team and BBC's pundits could learn alot from MB. Thinking you deserve to win something doesn't get you a prize automatically. Did you see a defensive crouch talking at wimbledon yesterday?
he's 6-2 6-0 now
he won 6-2 6-0 6-2. but youd make so much more betting on individual service games. theres no way they can put him favourite for breaking the other guys serve. (especially in the semi final)
itll never be the same odds in the final though against nadal (hopefully).
now nadal is 4-1 up. but the other guy in shorts served first
