  • Blog Post: Tennis Play AO Finals - Serena Williams vs Justine Henin

    This is surely the match everybody was expecting to happen when Justine Henin came back to the circuit this season. This was easily the biggest rivalry on WTA over the past decade and it’s not a huge surprise that the first Grand Slam of this decade has in the final these two players. However, Justine...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 12-01 Night Card

    ATP Auckland - Tommy Robredo vs Simon Greul This is the first Double Dime of the 2010 season and I really hope we are as successful on these plays, as we are being on the regular ones until now. Simon Greul is the kind of opponent Tommy Robredo eats for breakfast. The German player has some talent...
  • Blog Post: Tennis 01/03 Final Update (ATP Doha + ATP Chennai + ATP Brisbane + WTA Brisbane + WTA Auckland + Hopman Cup)

    Tennis 2011 Season Record: 1-1-0 (-0.56 units) Yesterday’s recap: 3 units on A. Rodionova ML (@ -105 / 1.952) LOSS NOTE: We have a very large card of 11 plays for today, a pretty normal number, considering we have 41 matches being played today. Good luck!

  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 14-01 Card

    3 Plays for today: ATP Auckland - John Isner vs Albert Montanes ATP Sydney - Richard Gasquet vs Julien Benneteau I can't recall the last time someone actually made it to a semi final of an ATP tournament without facing a single Top 200 player in the previous rounds. But that's exactly...
  • Blog Post: Australian Open Tennis Final: Serena Williams vs Dinara Safina

    A bit of different action for tonight, with the final of the Australian Open between Serena Williams and Dinara Safina: Australian Open Play - Serena Williams (USA) vs Dinara Safina (RUS) We have arrived to the final of the first Grand Slam of the year and we have to say this is a surprising final...
  • Blog Post: ATP Tennis Play Abu Dhabi - Rafael Nadal vs Robin Soderling

    2010 Season Record: 0-0 (+0.00 units) ATP Abu Dhabi Exhibition Final - Rafael Nadal vs Robin Soderling Match to be played at 08:00AM EST I generally don’t like to bet on exhibitions. Players tend to lack motivation, causing my job of handicapping to be much harder to do, as it’s hard to...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 11-01 Night Card

    WTA Sydney - Aravane Rezai vs Agnes Szavay Even though Agnes Szavay is coming from a huge win over Jelena Jankovic yesterday, I don't think she will have the weapons to beat Rezai today. The Hungarian used a lot of energy to beat Jankovic and I don't believe she will be at 100% physically...

  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 05-01 Night Card

    4 Plays for tonight: WTA Auckland - Maria Kirilenko vs Kaia Kanepi This wasn't the match everybody was expecting to watch, as Na Li was the overwhelming favorite to beat Kaia Kanepi yesterday, but an absolute no show of the Chinese player allowed Kanepi to win her second match since May...
  • Blog Post: Australian Open Tennis Final: Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal Pick

    This is my play for the Australian Open final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The matches between these two players are always instant classics and this will be another one. Australian Open - Roger Federer (SWI) vs Rafael Nadal (ESP) Luckily for everybody who is a tennis fan, the dream final...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 01-03 YTD: 2-1 (+1.00 units)

    I have 3 plays for tonight: 2010 Season Record: 2-1 (+1.00 units) I've been looking for sportsbooks which accept American costumers for the WTA plays, but I couldn't find any. Nevertheless, here are the plays: WTA Auckland - Dominika Cibulkova vs Alexandra Dulgheru Dominika Cibulkova saw...
  • Blog Post: Tennis 02/01 Final Update (ATP Brisbane + WTA Brisbane + Hopman Cup)

    Tennis 2011 Season Record: 1-0-0 (+2.44 units) Yesterday’s recap: 3 units on Australia to win the tie WIN NOTE: Just one play for today: WTA Brisbane - 4527 Bojana Jovanovski vs 4528 Anastasia Rodionova - Sunday, 02:00 GMT ***SINGLE DIME PLAY*** Projected line: Rodionova @ -139 / 1.720 Pick: 3 units...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Play 04-01 Night Card

    4 plays for tonight: ATP Brisbane - Mardy Fish vs Marcos Baghdatis In theory, this may look like a great match, as Baghdatis is a former Top 10 player and Fish was inside the Top 20 less than a year ago, but the problem is that Fish won't surely be able to live up the hype of this match...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 06-01 Night Card

    3 Plays for tonight: WTA Brisbane - Kim Clijsters vs Lucie Safarova The total games line may even look low at first sight, but considering how amazing Clijsters is playing right now, everything above 18 games on matches between her and a non-top player is just way too much. Clijsters is playing...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 01-02 ATP & WTA

    I have 3 plays for tonight: 2010 Season Record: 1-0 (+1 units) ATP Brisbane - Thomaz Bellucci vs Juan Ignacio Chela I can’t say that I’m surprised to see the current lines for this match. But that doesn’t mean that I think that the current lines are fair. In fact, we are in presence of a...
  • Blog Post: Tennis 1st Play of the season - Hopman Cup

    2011 Record: 0-0-0 (0.00 units) NOTE: 1st play of the season, good luck to all! Hopman Cup - 5005 Belgium vs 5006 Australia - Saturday, 07:00 GMT ***SINGLE DIME PLAY*** Projected line: Australia @ -219 / 1.457 As you probably know, a Hopman Cup tie consists in three matches: women's match, men's...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Play AO Finals - Roger Federer vs Andy Murray

    It’s hard to predict who is going to win this match and that’s why I believe the over is the right play in here. These two players have already faced each other 10 times and in most of these matches, they went to the distance, needing a final set to decide the winner of those matches. Even though...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 08-01 Night Card

    3 Plays for tonight: ATP Brisbane - Gael Monfils vs Radek Stepanek The first semi final of the day looks to be the closest one on paper, however I don't believe it will be as close as the odds may suggest. Both players have a similar ranking, however the matchup is clearly favorable to Monfils...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Play 04-01 *Early Game*

    ATP Chennai - Thiemo De Bakker vs Rajeev Ram This may also seem to be a very tough contest to analyze, however after a deep study on this match, I believe that the much more talented Thiemo De Bakker should get a clear upperhand over the journeyman Rajeev Ram. Thiemo De Bakker had a brilliant...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Play AO SF's - Roger Federer vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

    This is the only match of the day and I predict that it won’t be a close one at all. Roger Federer has been in a quite tough draw for the last few rounds and he has been successfully overcoming all the obstacles, including Nikolay Davydenko in the quarter finals, a player who had defeated Federer...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 09-01 Day Card *EARLY GAME*

    ATP Doha - Rafael Nadal vs Nikolay Davydenko The world is absolutly pounding Davydenko in here and that pounding is so huge that Nadal’s odds are now in the 1.80’s. This is the problem of only looking to one side of the plate. Davydenko defeated Federer and he is in good form, but people are...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 13-01 Card

    2 Plays for today: ATP Sydney - Richard Gasquet vs Potito Starace *No writeup for this play* Pick: 1 unit (Single Dime) on Richard Gasquet (-4,5 Games) @ -130 on The Greek ATP Sydney - Mardy Fish vs Peter Luczak *No writeup for this play* Pick: 1 unit (Single Dime) on Mardy Fish (-2,5 Games...
  • Blog Post: Tennis Plays 10-01 Night Card

    5 Plays for tonight: WTA Hobart - Sara Errani vs Melanie Oudin Match to be played at 01:00 CET (00:00 GMT) No doubt Oudin is the most known and talented player out of the two, however the American player will struggle today against Errani. The American player showed in the Hopman Cup that she is...
