50 Comments on Daily picks

    • That is good stats stan. Taking the over then.

      Worried abt PCB and Goffin who have taken an injury vacation!lol

      What are your final bets for today in tennis?

  1. I like A. Santillan that doesn’t mean i think he would win, he played well in winnetka challenger( he won the title but that was hard court), he started playing on grass this year and has a 5/4 record on grass compared to bjorn’s 6/3 this year, 7/3 last year and 14/7 in total( he started playing on grass court in 2015).

    B. Frantangelo would receive home support he is an american but A. Santillan won a title in the USA( winnetka) has alreaady defeated some americans M. Mmoh( newport), D. Kudla( winnetka) etc

    My initial pick was A. Santillan plus 1.5 set he rarely loses in a blowout and he is on a winning streak( 6 wins) but after some research i deleted that post, i think Bjorn Frantangelo would win, Akira has changed surfaces grass, hard, grass but bjorn hasn’t changed surface since nothingham challenger( grass) it might help him.

    If any of picks contradicts yours please go with your own pick as i might not bet.

    Roger i trained early in the morning and i haven’t had breakfast my stomach is beginning 2 dance, not the good kind of dance lol the one that makes your eyes turn red, so i will post later.

    1) I. Dodig/ F. Skugor to win.
    2) Qureshi/Rajeev Ram to win( low odds, maybe avoid not worth the risk)
    3) Matt Reid/John.
    4) T. Belluci/S. Andre.
    5) Hans podlipnil/Andrei.
    6) M. Mirnyi/ D. Nestor.
    7) J. Knowle/Petzschner( might win).
    Am not done but i have to eat at some point.

    Later man.

  2. My bets:
    Carreno Busta over Kuznetsov
    Herbert over Menendez-Maceiras in 2
    Vesely over Albot in 2
    Karlovic over Kudla in 2

    good luck Everyone!

  3. Roger,

    D. Kudla vs I. Karlovic could go over 10.5 games in the 1 set the odd is not bad, denis defeated karlovic in newport( 2011)- 7-6(4), 4-6, 6-4.
    He also leads in the H2H 2-1( D. Kudla might not win but he can take a set or push the over).

  4. A wise man( Roger) once said “Nah, Pablo has been eating Doritos,tacos,burritos and other spanish foods. Hope he doesn’t come in bloated!”


    • Stan,

      Yup, the wise man(Roger)’s predictions always/mostly come true! Yup Cuevas came in bloated,rusted and got busted by a far low ranked player in LACksonen, who didn’t LACK any courage in beating an out of form Cuevas.

      As correctly feared, even PCB (Busta) got busted by a handicapped man(the slightly limping Kuznetsov)! To avoid defeat, PCB conveniently retired(like he retired against nadal at the 2017 FO-RG QF’S!

      As feared even the tough sox also won against Cecchinato.

      Stan, did you bet on my WTA picks (posted above)? All of my WTA picks won yesterday! Women are more reliable than men in Tennis and also in real life! It is true from personal experience! There are always exceptions! If I become the ruler of any country, I might have all my bodyguards as beautiful, trusted and trained killer/assasin womens like Muamar Gaddafi of Libya had!Ha,Ha,ha…I did a quick calculation a few weeks ago and saw that I made more profit on WTA (big exception is venus who lost Venusly and cost me big loss) and lost on ATP!

      Stan, why are men more flakey and unreliable compared to women (both in Tennis and life)?lol

      There are some flakes in today’s match ups also. MON maybe FILled with flakeS (MONFILS)! Not Cornflakes, of course!lol He flaked hard against mannarino in the 3rd rd. of the 2017 Wimbly when all picked him to win. Lost big money here also! $ Loss by man!lol Manfils can flake against Rogerio Dutra Silva (RDS) tomorrow because of below reasons: –

      1) Manfils is flakey in general! He is injury prone (ankle,hips etc.)
      2) Manfils is Rusting for 2 weeks from 2017 Wimbly!
      3) Manfils has not adapted to clay whereas RDS has taken to Clay like a seal takes to water!..And won a great match against a good clay player Marco Trungelliti.
      4) RDS has a faaaaaaar better W/L record on clay in 2017(22/22) vs a poor 3/3 for Manfils!
      5) CLAY is RDS’ preferred surface(plays 90% of his matches on clay. No good on other surfaces tho dabbles in it). Clay is Manfils’s least prefered surface!

      So, what is going in favor of Manfils? Just 2 things:-

      1) Manfils has a 1:0 H2H record over RDS. It is a win on hard surface in 08/2016. Just ignore it as RDS plays just a few matches on hard to get some money in non-clay season!lol
      2) Manfils is born/god gifted with freakish athletic ability and tennis skills!

      …Manfils may win if he comes in 100% healthy and squeezes all his athletic and tennis talents on to the clay court!lol…Still I won’t lay a penny as I am seeing that all top guns are flaking left and right (…and running home quicker than they came here!lol. Here is a short list of flakes who have preceded Manfils and gone home…1) Gael Simon (your French brother…Yes, another Gael..Manfils will join you soon) 2) Taylor Fritz 3) Marius Copil 4) pair 5) A. Bedene 6) Istomin 7) Bellucci 8) Leonardo Mayer 9) A.Mannarino 10) Lukas Lacko 11) M. Cecchinato 12) PCB and the king of all flakes…12) PCB and 13) Pablo Cuevas…I had big money on all these predicted FAV’s and lost tons of money as ALL these FAV flakes lost! Hence no love for MANfils…as he is a MAN who is not trustworthy like a woman!Ho,Ho,Ho…nope because MANfils is rusted, is injury prone and is not a good clay player. That’s all!

      Another MAN player(lol) on my FLAKE LIST is Putinesque Khachanov!lol

      Leaning on Gulbis to win over Khachanov in 3. Going with Gulbis ML and over proly. Gulbis has adapted to clay already with a great win over Arthur De Greef here at Bastad!

      Besides being a flake, Khachanov is RUSTED for nearly 2 weeks and BUSTED (by Nadal at 2017 Wimbly)!

      So, no love and my $$$ for the flakey Khachanov!

      MANfils and Khachanov may be No. 14) and No. 15) in my above flake list!lol
      Be-aware people especially with your hard earned money!lol

      Researching other matchups….

      Stan what are your picks for today? Shoot it fast…like a bullet!lol

      • Grass is Monfils least preferred surface. Great analysis though. I can for sure see Monfils losing. He and fognini are matches I wouldn’t bet on for tomorrow.

      • Monfils has made multiple quarterfinals at the French Open and made the finals in Monte Carlo last year so he actually is a good clay court player. But his favorite surface is probably hard courts still. But not a bad clay player. RDS is a good clay player though so it’ll be tough. All depends on Monfils in my opinion.

      • No i didn’t bet yesterday, by the time i was done with my picks some matches have already started.

        Roger, women can be more reliable than men on a particular area/issue, but i like the word that you used “There are always exceptions!” you can’t say that enough.
        I used to have more female friends than male but some(few) of them are married and i don’t want there hubby’s to misunderstand so i bolted immediately against some of their wishes.

        If my future wife has a good relationship with a man not casual but good it would drive me nuts, am a man and i didn’t want to put my fellow man in a situation that i would detest.

        Most women are sensitive and sweeeeet, the sensitivity can be exhausting but if you are patient person you might enjoy it.

        ATP and WTA, ATP is more competitive than WTA i don’t have to say much do i?
        WTA is also competitive, fun & interesting, some tournaments can be reliable than others but they ladies lose their serves a lot, multiple times in a set, the under hits most times than the over.

        Roger i opened a new email address and i sent an email to ricky a few days ago, you can contact him to get my details, i might bet today but am discouraged by the results of yesterday and the day before, if am not satisfied with my picks am not betting.

        • Stan, it needs lots of discipline not to bet when you are not satisfied with your picks.

          You have very nicely assessed the reliability of women in Life and tennis. In WTA women’s matches have lots of ups and downs but the end result is the same most of the time. There are some flakes on the ladies side also like Maria Sakkari, Sorana Cirstea (but highly talented) etc.!

          Stan, even if you are not betting, can you shoot your picks/leans quickly, especially those that are different from the picks of other experts here?

          Here is some homework for you if u have some time!

          1) Leaning on Ebden to win. But will it go over?

          2) Will the injury prone Dolgo beat the Pretzel body twister server Xeballos?

          3) Leaning on the russian kid roubles to beat martin.

          4) Can Kenny de Schepper beat Alessandro Giannessi? Kenny seems to have found some form here at Umag. Tho Gia is the more experienced Clay courter.

          5) Can the acrobatic, Gymnastic & athletic Monfils beat the clay specialist Dutra Silva?

          6) Can Gojo push the Dr. Ivo to the decider or even win?

          Do you agree with the above. What is your brilliant mind thinking?

  5. A little bird told me that Rafael Nadal might retire at the end of the season or next season, this bird said he( Rafa) is not happy with way that Roger Federer is winning.

    Australian open, Miami, Wimbledon etc were a huge Nightmare for rafa( especially Australian & Miami) , this source said not me that rafa is scared of R. Federer, everywhere he goes, whenever he sleeps he sees roger.

    I have to be honest i can’t confirm whether this information is true but we just have to wait and see, that’s all we can do, wait & see.

      • Rellikkk,

        All we can do is to wait and see whether it’s true or not, it could be false but i trust this source, this bird would never misled me or you.


      • Augusta,

        I have a big heart, I like Rafa he is a good player but if am being honest I like R. Federer more, he is they better player no arguments there.
        He( federer) has been unstoppable in many tournaments this year, he has smoked R. Nadal multiple times this year( Australia, Indian wells & Miami), nadal was blessed by G. Muller, he( Rafa) was lucky he didn’t meet Roger Federer in Wimbledon.

        To say that the match would be an embarrassments would be an understatement, I like Rafa and I mean it but this current R. Federer would play with him.

        By the way I like your emoji and am not federer worshiper, I only have one LORD and one SAVIOUR and his name is JESUS CHRIST.

  6. Thursday –
    Gulbis over Khachanov in 3 (Gulbis playing much better lately and on his favorite surface)
    Zeballos over Dolgopolov in 3 (I think Zeballos is slightly more reliable on clay but this match could go any way with Dolgopolov out there)
    Verdasco over Bagnis in 2 (look at the last match they played)
    Ramos-Vinolas over Monteiro in 2 (ARV is awesome on clay this season)

  7. Thursday continued –
    Ebden over Kamke in 3 (great chance for both to make the semis and I think the Aussie has slightly more grass court prowess but it’s a close call)
    Karlovic over Gojowyczk in 2 (Ivo has lost both times against the German but is great at this event)
    Fognini over Kicker in 2 (this could literally go any way possible)
    Monfils over Dutra Silva in 2 (Monfils can be a question mark at smaller tournies but should outclass RDS in pretty much all areas)
    Rublev over Martin in 3 (lucky loser keeps it going)
    Giannessi over De Schepper in 3 (I favor Giannessi on clay)

    • Great job Ben with your predictions!

      My picks are in line with most of your picks except for the 2 or 3 Flakes listed above!

      Fognini,ARV & VERDASCO should win ML.

      Fognini might get a tough fight from Kicker as Kicker is a Clay specialist having more experience & wins on clay in 2017! He is more adpated to Clay at Umag with a fine win over the ageless Youzny! Fognini should not have any mental breakdowns/tantrums and slowly grind down this tricky,stubborn, grinder!

      Fog also being a clay court specialist should use his vast all-round tennis experience, power and brilliance to kick the “stubborn” kicker to Argentina!lol Fog might need 3 sets as he is rusted for 2 weeks since wimbly like all the other top guns!

      I hope Fog being a father now will play solidly & responsibly and win this match (and small tourney) as he needs the money to buy diapers, milk powders,new dresses,immunization shots, pay for regular doctor visits etc. etc.!lol

      All other matches may be tossups. Leaning on over in others on 1st glance. Diving deeply into researching them now! Will report after reaching ocean floor!lol

    • I really hope we get at least one more Fedal match through the N. ‘Merican hardcourt swing. Although Rafa did beat Fed at Cinci in 2013, I think that Canada would be a more neutral surface for their respective games. From a Rafa standpoint, it would be very helpful for him to go into the US Open with a win over Fed, and regain the confidence he always had in that match-up. From Fed’s point of view, I think that the longer he can maintain his current win streak over Rafa, the more confidence he would have in a potential US Open Fedal showdown. Personally, I really hope that Fedal go into the US Open as the top two seeds, so that they are guaranteed to only meet in the final should they get there. I’m not sure what the odds are of the two of them going into the Open as the top two seeds… Anyone have the numbers??

      • I think Fed would like to play Rafa at Cincy and Rafa would like that match to be at Montreal. Agree with wanting another Fedal matchup heading in for sure Alec. One at the actual US Open would be pretty epic as well.

        • Oh man… Imagine if it was this year that we finally got a Fedal US Open final? A year or so ago, it felt unlikely that we would get another Fedal slam final anywhere, let alone potentially at AO AND US in same season! I love it… I love how we have a two-player shootout for year-end #1 like last year, except instead of Murrovic, it’s Fedal. 🙂

      • Odds are pretty good barring a sudden return to form by Andy and Nole, which does not seem too likely, or a sudden charge from Stan, which would be atypical at Masters. Fed needs 1250 points to pass Andy. Rafa needs about half that. Andy is defending 600 points from Cincy (finalist).

        My guess is that Andy will play the USO series (Rogers, Cincy and USO) as usual. He’s got a few weeks to heal up. Novak may not. His wife is expecting in early September and he’s been dealing with shoulder/elbow problems for awhile now.

  8. Roger i didn’t check the time A. Dolgopolov vs H. Zeballos match is about to start, have you already placed your bets.

    • Yup, stan I put in 2 slips. One for Dolgo ML win and another one for the over.

      What was your pick here and in the other matches for today?

  9. Roger you said A. Kuznetsov was slightly limping were you joking or does he have an injury?
    I didn’t watch any match or highlights yesterday.

    • Stan, i was jokingly referring to the limping and walking natural style of Kuznetsov!lol He is not injured.

      BOL on your other sports. Baseball?

      • How do you know it’s baseball, i like the sport but am not a big fan.

        Soccer, NBA etc have not resumed, so i am stuck with them.
        I might not make it, i need some time, you & other things are distracting me.

        I might check martin vs rublev’s match.

  10. I might not post other picks, i want to bet today that’s if i meet up( time is not on my side), i started late.
    Am doing some research on other sports.

  11. I believe A. Dolgopolov can defeat K. Khachanov and D. Schwartzman Sebastian can win against A. Kuznetsov.

    In my 2nd slip I want take the over 21.5 games between D. Schwartzman and A.kuznetsov.

    Can H. Laaksonen take set from D. Ferrer or push the match over 20.5 games what do guy’s think am placing this bet and others in the next hour, please respond as soon as you get this.

  12. My picks

    1) Diego Schwartzman- (1) To win, (2) Over 9.5 games in the 1st set ( vs A. Kuznetsov).
    2) A. Dolgopolov- (1) To win ( vs K. Khachanov).
    3) J. Vesely- (1) To win ( vs P. Lorenzo).
    4) E. Donskoy- (1) To win ( vs E. Gerasimov).
    5) S. Bolelli- (1) To win ( vs R. Bemelmans).
    6) Yuki Bhambri- (1) To win ( vs A. Sarkissian).
    7) Thiemo De Bakker- (1) To win ( vs S. Tsitsipas).
    8) Soon Woo, Kwon- (1) Plus 1.5 sets( either wins or loses in 3 sets), (2) To win ( vs A. Bublik).
    9) Aldin setkic- (1) Plus 1.5 sets ( vs Duckhee Lee).
    10) V. Millot- (1) Plus 1.5 sets, (2) To win ( vs M. Jaziri).
    11) Kiki Bertens- (1) To win ( vs J. Larsson)
    12) K. Bertens/J. Larsson- (1) To win 1 set/match( there odds were low so I boosted it, this is a WTA doubles match ( vs L. Kuncikova/E. Wacanno).
    13) Bjorn Fratangelo- (1) Plus 1.5 sets( wins or loses in 3 sets) vs Pierre Hugues-Herbert.

    I played multiple slips so all this matches are not on one slip, I also changed some of my picks e.g D. Schwartzman( to win on one slip and in another over 9.5 games in the 1st set) etc.
    I also avoided some matches, I might play them later after I have done some extensive research and had some Zzz https://www.google.com/search?q=sleeping+emoji&client=ucweb-b&channel=sb&prmd=isnv&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&fir=4LC1Xo4swOoaKM%253A%252CaPuBH4olQCUi5M%252C_%253Bu8g2GZTsV7pPhM%253A%252CaPuBH4olQCUi5M%252C_%253B8GWJmq8LLIH7dM%253A%252CaPuBH4olQCUi5M%252C_%253BMpQVvKXprf4uPM%253A%252CKFg4pM1Jz-YTUM%252C_%253B6bkzRVa8RSjIaM%253A%252CeM6OtaL1tInhBM%252C_%253Byloe2fJG7wrIzM%253A%252CKFg4pM1Jz-YTUM%252C_%253BZUy16Nyg91X6UM%253A%252CNtsDM0sVhqr5VM%252C_%253Bg3mgaIVIEbK26M%253A%252C5cZ5bdjDScEMqM%252C_%253BLSlA7pEG51kamM%253A%252CL5z7wXkjJlyKIM%252C_&usg=__K0OxU5a7afmRDfK8IdQEXLWD1yY%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwil1LrnkJnVAhXDJ1AKHQLyBh0Q7AkIMQ&biw=360&bih=567#imgrc=GRR9IdOdBeCzSM:&spf=1500597374628

    Goodnight everybody or Good morning wherever you are, see you guy’s later.

    • Good predictions Stan!

      But you missed so many picks(6 picks exactly from Ricky’s official picks)!

      Can you list couple of lines of strong logic why you picked a particular player/option (like over) in a match?

      Are you a hurdler of some sorts as you have hurdled over few matches at each of the above 3 tournament?lol You must be a good T&F athlete!lol
