75 Comments on Daily picks

  1. Thursday:
    Nadal over Fognini in 2 (Fog has got other problems to deal with on top of having to play Rafael Nadal)
    Querrey over Dimitrov in 3 (for me logic says Querrey looking at his results so far here and his fantastic consistency and form this year and heart/gut says Dimitrov and while I’ve had mixed results going against my gut I’m gonna stick with my original quarterfinalist from the start of the event even if I had Harrison in this round instead)
    Cilic over Johnson in 2 (Cilic may have lost in Tokyo to Mannarino but I still think he could be top 3 by end of the year)
    Struff over Ramos-Vinolas in 3 (Struff has done quite well at the end of the season in recent years and has the power edge in a very winnable match here against an opponent who isn’t as red hot as he was earlier in the year)
    Del Potro over Zverev in 3 (Del Po loves Shanghai)
    Gasquet over Simon in 3 (head to head heavily favors the Frenchman with the one hander)
    Federer over Dolgopolov in 2 (Roger has dominated Dolgopolov in the past and I doubt that changes here)
    Isner over Troicki in 3 (Troicki loves Shanghai and could spring another upset but Isner has been in quietly awesome form lately and has been pretty clutch this week)

    • Just a disclaimer for those who bet. I highly discourage betting on the Dimitrov/Querrey match. I picked Querrey due to the ease he has reached this point of the event with and his good form on fast surfaces but it’s about as close to 50/50 as a match gets for me so I would stay away from betting on a result in this one.

  2. The only match I am betting big on is Zverev to win. I am quite confident he wins after watching their first matches. He is just too solid on the backhand wing for Del Potro and should be able to dominate the rallies everytime they go to a backhand exchange. 2-0 for Zverev.

    If I had to give a quick review on the others it would be:
    Dimitrov in 3. But could go either way.
    Ramos in 3. I think patience beats winners in this one, and Ramos can deliver that.
    Johnson in 3. Pretty good value in my opinion, close to a 50/50 match with Johnson looking to be in best form from the first matches.
    Gasquet in 3. But only because of the h2h, for me it looked like the good old Simon is back, and I loved to back him back in those days, however Gasquet played some amazing tennis himself, and since the h2h is in his favour, he must have a formular to beat Simon, even when he is playing his best.
    Troicki 2-1. Also a guy who has been out of form for a long time, but is looking red hot at the moment. Troicki is playing some of his best tennis again, and should have a good chance vs Isner, since Troicki has been returning great this week.
    Nadal 2-0 2-1. Fognini can always bring something to the table. Either a close match or an easy match, only Fognini can tell.
    Federer 2-0. Even tho Dolgopolov is a tricky player, Federer wants and should be able to close it out in 2 sets.


    • Very good picks quade. In line with the official picks mostly. Have the same for most parts.

      What if Delpo uses his main weapon the forehand more and attack Zverev’s weak area the forehand side(?) avoiding the backhand, then can Delpo win?

      You said…”he must have a formula to beat Simon, even when he is playing his best.”

      Gasquet’s Magic formula is E=MC2(square) ie., attack all balls with his backhand and if it fails he gasessssssssssssssssssss…..lol

      As Simon is still not in top form, Gasssss….. should win. Can’t overlook the 7″1 H2H adv. of Gasssss…..

      Can’t asses simon’s form still. He looked shaky against the 17 yr old Chinese kid Yibing Wu in the 1st rd. But his great win over a tired Goffin must have given Simon great confidence.

      As both are Frenchie’s, will Gassssss…..will be nice to Simon and take it easy on him and play until the decider like he does/plays (jokingly and less seriously) against Gaël Monfils?

    • Phil, how are you doing?
      I haven’t been posting my picks frequently because of some important reasons.

      1) When i don’t bet, i don’t like doing any research cos when i do, it motivates me to bet.

      2) When i win big and i haven’t invested the money elsewhere, i get cold feet like a nervous groom who can’t make it to the altar.

      There are other important reasons but some might misunderstand so i won’t say.

  3. Hahahs I understand. Hey can u help me out plz? Which 1 are you most confident in… nadal, Federer, cilic match, isner match, Simon match? What do you think my man? Pick 1 and only 1 would rlly appreciate it

    • R. Nadal but his odd is too low to back and i don’t play low odds cos the are not worth the risk, what do you think?
      I would rather go with the over/under games to juice up the odds but it is risky.

      R. Federer will win shanghai that’s the truth but A. Dolgopolov won’t make it easy but we will see.

      I posted some picks in the previous page( page 132, last comment), i picked G. Dimitrov to win, A. Zverev to win and other matches.

      It’s important you know this, i didn’t bet on them and this was not an in-depth research.

      R. Federer will win the shanghai title no one else.

      • Unfortunately my bookie doesn’t give me over/under lines. And yes with those lines it def is not worth the risk, anything can happen. And yes I did read your other picks. If your that confident in roger I might be risky and take him lol

        • Phil, your bookies are robbing you big time.

          Look for another or open an account online, there are many good betting site that offer multiple good markets to choose 4rm.

          I picked A. Zverev to win but DELPO is leading in the 3rd set, i also picked the over games but i don’t know the line cos i didn’t check or bet.

          I wanted A. Zverev to win because Juan Martin Del potro chokes when he goes deep in a tournament.

  4. He’s a local guy and very legit, but I know it sucks! I just know if I put $700 up on fed to win $100 he’ll lose lol. Jus my luck.

  5. I agree with the winners. Bettingwise some bad match-ups. My predictions on sets;
    Federer 2-0 – Can’t see Gasquet do much here, even tho he is playing amazing.
    Nadal 2-0 – Dimitrov will have to play his absolute best to do something here, not impossible, but I think Nadal keeps going and gets it done in 2.
    Cilic 2-1 – I actually think Ramos have a good chance to grind atleast 1 set out.
    Del Potro 2-1 – Same as above. Troicki is redhot atm, and could steal a set.


    • Good analysis Quade.

      I think all the dogs below can steal a set as they are all playing well. When they are playing at a high level or in good form you reward them with a set as a bribe!lol

      Think all the dogs can push the over atleast. Gasquet and Dimitrov need to play aggressive and maintain their serves else they have to pack up early. Besides that they should not engage in too many rallies with Nadal or Federer (that will spell death to you) and finish off the returns quickly with extra pace/power! Engaging with Nadal or Federer in rallies a lot is like engaging a murderer in small talk! You just avoid them! You don’t play cat and mouse with killers/murderers. Nadal and Federer are killers/murderers in Tennis. They usually murder their opponents! Ha,ha,ha…

      Friday picks

      Nadal over Dimitrov in 3 and/or over

      Dimi stole a set of Nadal @Beijing last week. Why can’t he do the same tomorrow?

      Dimi infact stole 2 sets and won the match @2016 Beijing event.

      Cilic over Ramos-Vinolas in 3 and/or over ARV playing well and will fight using his lefty power!lol

      Del Potro over Troicki in 3 As quade said Troicki is kinda red hot. Serving and returning very well. Over surely here. Troicki will trouble Delpo a lot!

      Federer over Gasquet in 3 (if gassss….plays aggressively with minimal error & finishes points quickly. Else in 2)

      Vamos Fedal, take it easy on your opponents! They are already wetting their pants right now thinking about playing you 2 killers/murderers of Tennis (opponents)!lol

      • R. Federer will win in 2 sets, the rest can/will go over games or 3 sets.
        I agree with all of Ricky’s winners cos the are similar with mine.

        I won’t back R. Nadal to win, he can win but over games or G. Dimitrov winning a set ain’t bad.
        Instead of picking R. Nadal to win, i might avoid this match or go with the options i listed, then on a different slip R. Nadal to win & over games in other to juice up his odds because it’s low.

        I don’t bet on straight sets so i might pick R. Federer to win & under games if the line is high, if it’s low, R. Federer to win 1st set & match Instead of Federer to win & over games.

        I knew V. Troicki will win a set & over games but i didn’t bet on it just posted it, 1st & 2nd slip with other games then on the 3rd slip J. Isner to win with other good games, John lost.

        This is for Dr. Phil my namesake, Instead of using 700 to try to win 100 use 300, 100 on three slips to win 1000 or 500.

        We bet different amounts and aim for different odds but i won’t bet 700 to win 100, don’t mind me, we all have our strategies, this is just my 2 cents.

  6. Friday:
    Nadal over Dimitrov in 2 (Dimitrov looked good vs Querrey but Nadal is in super form that only a few players can stop at the moment)
    Federer over Gasquet in 2 (I feel Roger will continue to improve his level until he hits peak form in the final and this is a perfect opportunity to continue that process)
    Cilic over Ramos-Vinolas in 3 (ARV is sneaky good in Shanghai so I’ll give the Spaniard a set on a surface that should be much better for Marin)
    Del Potro over Troicki in 2 (Del Po owns the H2H)

  7. Gasquet keeps hitting to Fed’s BH; don’t he know that Fed now has an improved BH? These players make the mistake of attacking Fed’s BH but not his FH, when Fed is now slower in moving to cover his FH, and he’s camping more at his BH corner these days.

    Gasquet squandered that BP chance by hitting right back at Fed at the BH corner, when he could have hit to Fed’s FH Open court! Gasquet not thinking clearly out there; he has to move out of his comfort zone if he wants to have any chance against Fed.

  8. Gasquet really doesn’t have a good tennis brain! Why is he hitting CC to Fed’s BH all the time? Fed ended the first set hitting more BH winners than Gasquet!

    Gasquet didn’t even have a BHDTL shot in this match!

    • He’s probably permanently scarred from all the years of getting destroyed by Fed’s forehand. He probably wants to hit it Fed’s forehand, but his body won’t let him him haha. Also, from what I saw of Fed’s matches in this tournament leading up to this match, his forehand actually looked way better to me, and his backhand looked weaker. Still, you’re right that Gasquet should have been able to tell after a few games that Fed’s backhand is better today. I just think that a lot of these Gasquet type-guys just get such a mental block when they face guys like Fed, Rafa, and Novak. it’s like they freeze up during the match and can’t think clearly.

      • It’s not just simply hitting to Fed’s FH; Gasquet has to hit his CC BH well (which he’s doing the whole match), opens up the court and then attack Fed’s FH. Gasquet just hit CC BH all the time and hardly does anything else! Not going to work against Fed.

        Fed makes many errors in this match, he’s not very sharp but Gasquet is not the type of players to take advantage.

  9. As expected, four slam winners into the SFs. I wonder when was the last time that happened, probably during the time when all the big four are playing their best tennis at the same time, in 2012 perhaps?

  10. I’d say that Fed vs. DelPo is about 50/50. DelPo showed at the US Open that he can win big matches even when he is in poor physical condition, so his longer time spent on court than Fed should not make much of a difference. I think it will come down to which ever one can impose their game and dictate will win. If Fed can serve really well, dictate play and really attack Del Po’s backhand, then he should win. If DelPo serves really well and Fed is off at all like at US Open, I am sure Del Po will win. So I’m not even willing to make a prediction at this point!

    • DelPo fell and hurt his left wrist late in his match today. Put his hand down to break his fall and regretted it big time! Finished the match cautiously, avoiding his backhand as much as possible. He’s going for an MRI according to the commies. Really hope he’s OK.

      • Oh no! That’s awesome that he was able to close out the match after the fall, though. He is such a dogged fighter. Truly amazing guy. In the last couple years, he has come through so many extremely tough matches where I never thought he would end up winning, often against the top players. Considering he has basically NO backhand compared to what it used to be, it’s astonishing to me how he’s able to beat all the top guys. His win over Novak at the olympics was awesome, but the fact that he’s been able to get Best-of-5 set wins over Federer, Rafa, Murray, and Stan in the last couple years in amazing. Unfortunately his post-surgeries physical limitations have kept him from turning those big wins into big titles. But given how he is rendered incapable of doing any real damage from the left side of his body, it’s just remarkable the amount of huge, epic wins he has gotten over the best players in the world post-surgeries. It just makes you wonder what he could be doing if he still had a backhand. Although maybe the non-backhand has forced him to play more effectively aggressive than he would have played had he still had a backhand? We will never know…

        • Delpo might be a no.1 player had he not had his wrist injuries and perhaps won a few more slams, but, I doubt he could be an ATG like Fedal or Djoko. Perhaps, he could be like Murray and Stan, or maybe better than Stan.

          • I agree. He capable of being a multiple champ like Stan or Murray, but not double-digits. I actually think one of his best chances to get another major was at 2009 RG. Sure, it was pretty much Fed’s destiny to get that one after winning Madrid and Rafa getting knocked out by Soderling, but DelPo really had Fed on the ropes in the semis. He kind of fell apart at the end of the match, and Fed did well to fight through that one, but boy was DelPo close there! And who’s to say he couldn’t have beaten Soderling in the final?

  11. No way Nadal loses. It’s easier for Federer to lose against Del Potro then Nadal to lose against Cilic. My opinion is Federer and Nadal both advance

  12. Tony you may be Uncle Tony (who knows? Give me your number. We will find out!lol I am your fan also!) but I agree with you 100%. My reasoning is given below.

    Got Nadal in 3 (like the over here) and Fed in 2 (if Delpo dares to show up and not retire!lol)

    Nadal may have taken 2 hours and 32 minutes to finish Dimitrov but it will not deter Nadal from winning tomorrow’s SF match against Cilic. Nadal will win tomorrow at any cost (may be an ugly win in 3 tight sets but he will surely win for reasons given below!) because:-

    1) Nadal is motivated to win this Tournament and others before 2017 ends and remain as the unbeaten Champion of BOTH CLAY & HARD surface and remain No.1 for 2017 and show that he is the REAL GOAT (along with Federer)!

    2) Nadal is pumped by the fact that if he wins tomorrow (and he will surely), he can play Federer in the Final and beat Fed (hopefully) and take revenge for the 2016 AO FINALE loss.

    3) Nadal being so close to the title here besides the attraction of a big paycheck (Nadal loves BIG MONEY! Ask him if you doubt it! That too after beating Federer. This money will then be all the more sweeter for Nadal!lol) and 1000 ATP points will not leave any stone unturned to win tomorrow in the SF against Cilic, an opponent he has beaten 4 times before!

    4) Nadal is used to playing long and tough matches in the QF and SF’s and still winning the finals (check his past accomplishments in this situation) as NADAL IS A BEAST of a man! Nadal has great strength and endurance unlike other players. He has a great team with him in Uncle Tony, Carlos Moya, his Physios and trainers who will provide proper rest, massage, exercise, Nutrition, Electrolytes etc. etc. to make Nadal battle ready for the SF (for a guaranteed win) and the Finals (Anything can happen here. Anyone can win. Will predict the Finale winner after Nadal’s SF win)!

    Nadal’s tiredness will disappear (with the help of his team) as Nadal will be looking at what is at stake for him with the win of the Title at Shanghai Rolex Masters 1000 ATP Tournament (as listed in points 1,2 and 3 above).

    Got Nadal in 3 and Fed in 2 (if Delpo dares to show up and not retire!lol)

    I won’t be surprised if Nadal beats Cilic in 2.But not betting on it! Just in 3 or the over!

    Remember how you wrongly predicted the Beijing Open Finals (given below):-


    Nadal over Kyrgios in 3”

    But Nadal squished Kyrgios like a bug! The same can happen tomorrow(but not predicting it).

    But just predicting a Nadal win in 3. It may be a dirty win (in 3 tight sets) but who cares! We just want a Nadal win (to setup a juicy Finale with Federer) tomorrow over Cilic (an opponent Nadal has beaten 4 times. Nadal has Cilic’s number!lol) and Nadal will deliver and make his RaFANS happy! I am also a FEDan! I am a fan of great talent and skill(be it Caroline Garcia or Wozniacki or Nadal or Federer)! Ricky are you not a RaFAN like us?

    Got Nadal in 3 (like the over here) and Fed in 2 (if Delpo dares to show up and not retire!lol)

    What you got RaFANS?

  13. Shanghai Semis:
    Nadal over Cilic in 3 (this surface gives Cilic a solid shot which is why I have him making it close but Rafa’s momentum is too large for the Croat to stop right now imo)
    Federer over Del Potro in 2 (unfortunately we may get a withdrawal which will be great for Roger but bad for the fans and tennis but if JMDP does show up I doubt he gets much done with how banged up he must be by now and the surface advantage to a Fed that is growing on confidence and working his way into form as I expected)

  14. I am actually with Ricky on this one. I think Cilic has a very good chance for the upset, I don’t know why, but I saw some weakness in Nadals performance against Dimitrov. He is too far behind the baseline, and Cilic hard attacking style with bigger serves and bigger hits than Dimitrov will trouble Nadal alot. Cilic also looks very focused and confident this tournament.

    Prediction 2-1 Cilic.

    To the Federer Del Potro match I think Federer is going to take it in 3. He is playing good, but not his best, but I think he will revenge the US Open loss, and get a hardfought win in a close 3 setter.

    Prediction 2-1 Federer.


  15. I’m not an uncle yet,no. Haha

    But I don’t agree with Federer winning the title at the expense of Nadal. Remember Nadal has an big H2H advantage over Federer and Nadal is playing better than ever on Hard Court. he’s a beast and is probably the most comeptitive guy in the circuit.

    If I have to bet on anyone Nadal vs Federer my money’s gonna be on Nadal.

    • That is right Uncle Tony, you will always bet on Nadal as you are his trainer,mentor etc.!

      Won’t Nadal be mad if he knows you bet on Federer? Uncle Tony, I know you will praise Nadal in public (on tenngrand etc.) bet a couple of grand on Federer secretly as you know that Federer owns Rafa having won the last 4 H2H MU’s and is the rightful “Hard and Grass Court King” and will win tomorrow, Isn’t it? Good luck with that! Ha,ha,ha…I might just sitback with half a dozen Taquila’s, Mallorca hard Beer, chicken wings etc. and watch these 2 greats go at each other for the 40th time!

      Uncle tony, I think Nadal will win as he came thru a tougher draw having beaten the likes of Cilic(Rank#5) and Dimitrov(Rank#9), Fognini the brilliant player who can beat any player on his day and Jared Donaldson…the guy in top form on hard in 2017! etc. So, Nadal is battle tested unlike Federer!

      If you can beat BABY FED (Dimitrov) then it means you have beaten FATHER FED (Roger Federer) himself! And BABY FED (Dimitrov) has outgrown FATHER FED (Roger Federer) in skills and talent!

      Federer came through an easier draw beating short guys (Shortman. It’s like beating a kid!lol), Dolgopolov…the weak minded match fixer and injury prone guy, Gasquet….whom you know is just gassss etc.

      On top of all that Rafa is “Never-say-die” fighter with real spanish blood and genes!lol On the other hand you have the 36 year old quitter who will quit complaining of a back pain and might take a Medical Time Out before quitting!lol

      Vamos Fedal! May the Best King win!

  16. Very close to a 50/50 final in my opinion.

    All I can see is a very close match.

    I am almost clueless about who wins. I can see them both win it.

    The only prediction I will do is saying it’s going to be a very close and much likely 3 setter.

    It’s going to be a great match without a doubt.

  17. Shanghai final pick – Fed over Nadal in 3:
    I give Roger the edge due to his greater past success on this surface in general and against Nadal. He’s also won four straight vs Rafa and has gotten better as the week has progressed. Also he has the serve advantage especially on this court. Nadal is playing very well but has played a lot of tennis and the combination of many recent matches and greater pressure to win as the form favorite could help Fed a lot. Despite his recent wins over Nadal this season, Fed might be able to feel like and embrace more of an underdog role while still knowing that this is the surface he is best at beating Nadal on and can do so again.

    • Solid prediction, Benny. I think any prediction for this match is acceptable and realistic given all the factors, except for a rout for either of them, losing under 8 games. I can’t imagine it not at least being somewhat close…

    • A few days ago( more than a week ago) I won a huge bet.
      If I am playing a single bet( one match) I stake high to get a good profit, but my main bets range between 10-15 odds per slip/ticket, sometimes the odds are lower than this, I play multiple slips and I have explained this strategy multiple times, when I am aiming for 10 odds or more I stake a good amount not too high, I play between 4-5 slips aiming for an odd that covers my total bet and good profits.

      Sometimes/most times after placing my main bets I like to use a very small amount to target a crazy odd 1000-4000 odds, a few days ago( more than a week ago) I aimed for 3553.91 odds with a small amount not too small, a total of 10 matches and I won BIGLY, one match was voided- R. Magdalena vs S. Halep, I picked S. Halep to win plus over 20.5 games at 2.76 odds but R. Magdalena retired in the 2nd set after losing the 1st set 6-1, 2nd set 2-1, this match was voided and the odds reduced to 1287.2847.

      10 matches-

      1) A. Dolgopolov to win at 1.50 odds vs D. Medvedev.

      2) L. Mayer to win & over 22.5 games at 3.55 odds vs P. Lorenzi.

      3) G. Dimitrov to win & over 21.5 games at 2.67 odds vs D. Dzumhur.

      4) K. Edmund vs A. Zverev- over 21.5 games at 1.65 odds

      5) J. Ostapenko to win & over 20.5 games at 2.83 odds.

      6) S. Halep to win & over 20.5 games at 2.76 odds vs M. Rybarikova- voided because of retirement.

      7) Shuai Zhang vs A. Radwanska- over 21.5 games at 1.80 odds.

      8) Karolina Pliskova to win & over 19.5 games at 2.44 odd vs A. Petkovic.

      9) D. Kasatkina to win & over 20.5 games at 2.83 odds vs Lara Vecino-Arruabarrena.

      10) Elina Svitolina to win at 1.56 odds vs A. Barty.

      I won my main bets but this one was BIGLY.

      • I will be playing 5 different slips/tickets today, some tennis( ATP & WTA) and some NFL, each slip will contain more than 5 matches and the odds will cover my total stake with lots of profits so that even if i win just 1 slip i cover my investments & make some good profits if the rest fails.
        I want to win 2 or 3 slips that’s all, 1 won’t be bad but 2 or 3 would be awesome.

        In those 5 slips i will back R. Federer to win in 2 slips, i will stay neutral in 2 slips by picking either over/under or what sets the match will end in, in the last slip i will back my Rafito even though i know he will lose, i will pick him to win just in case R. Federer decides to be merciful.

        Even a B. Squirrel finds a nut once in a while.

        • Thanks True Alpha.
          This is the 2nd time I am winning that kind of huge odds that’s why I use a very small amount because it is not my main bet, targeting 1000-4000 odds is risky but if it comes through just once it is worth it.

          My main bets are not that high the are between 10-15 odds or single bets.
          I know you guy’s are not doubting me but if you guy’s are, I can prove it by forwarding the necessary information to the founder of this site to confirm what I am saying.
          I don’t want to do that because there are private informations I don’t want to disclose but if I have to I will disclose.

          True Alpha I am sorry, I don’t disclose how much I stake or the amount I win, I have my reasons.
          I wish you success True Alpha and I hope your losing streaks turn to winning streaks.

          Patience and having a good strategy is the key.
          We win & we lose but hopefully our win will be greater than our loses.

          Wishing u the best.

      • What was the staeke on this and what platform do you use? A lot of the online platforms are unreliable, you never know who will pay or balk.

  18. In the two Masters R. Federer & R. Nadal played this year, Roger won in 2 sets and under games.
    In AO R. Federer won in the 5th set & over games.

    In Shanghai another Masters at 23.5 games will this match go under or over, both player’s can push the match over but sometimes it fails check recent H2H’s.
    What do you think?

    What does CC or DTL mean?

      • Congrats bro, this guy is AWESOME!!!

        R. Federer is a great guy, it wasn’t easy, the match was easy but it is not easy to defeat a good player like R. Nadal 4 times in a year, 1 Grand Slam, 3 masters, 3 finals, 5 times in a roll.

        I am hugging everyone i meet friend or foe, i am very happy and i am proud of RF.
        He is an inspiration, to achieve what he has achieved this year at his age is no small task.

        You are playing against the best, you are fighting age, injuries etc and yet you come out on top.

        This guy, my man Roger Federer is the best player this year, no one else.
        Irrespective of how the season ends, Fed will still be THE BEST, he was ROGERLICIOUS 2day and i proud of him.

        Congrats to us, wooooooohoooooo!!! Lol!

  19. Stanley you are genius great call my guy!
    I’ll be coming to you this week for your expertise tennis picks you r the man! go Roger!!

    • 3 tournaments in ATP, 2 in WTA, we better win big because the season is running out.

      I haven’t searched out any match because i have been busy, i will start soon.
      I probably won’t sleep much, i need to win again and win big.

    • Phil, thank U 4 those kind words but I don’t do well when I am under pressure cos I don’t want to disappoint anyone.
      When I lose, I lose, when I win, I win but If i am the reason why someone else loses that’s painful, I am not sure I will recover.

      I will do what I can, we will see.

  20. Man, I luv the purple and green courts in Moscow.

    But the courts n Linz is halloween spooky!lol Looks like the organizers @Linz removed a square portion of a snow covered road and made it into a tennis court!lol

    Why was Coric choosen to beat Sela in 3?

    Sela will win in 3 or even in 2. Coric is in bad-form. We can just tell that by having a cursory glance at the stats!

    …means all the picks need to be double-checked!lol

    Ben, Stan,Todd, Flash etc. what are your picks for today?

    Not confident at in all in today’s MU. Many flakes and many close matches possible.

    • I was more than 90% confident that D. Sela would win but i didn’t bet on it because i wasn’t done researching other matches and to be honest i am not close to finalizing them, i have been distracted with important and less important things.

      I procrastinate and that’s not good, it cost me big time in rome this year.

      Mark Zuckerberg would have been my employee but too bad, i missed it.

      • Stan M&Mlicious,

        Thnx for your quick post.

        You said “distracted with important and less important things.”. If you want to be successful in any walk of life, you have to learn to ignore or reschedule the “distracted with important and less important things.” and focus on work/researching to make money! Stan, even I have the same problem(but I have no one to help me, so I got to do 1000’s of works @home/office myself) and it has been a constant struggle to balance the less important things(which are actually needed) and the more important things(work/betting.making money)!

        Post your pre-preliminary findings atleast (which you do usually) so we can get the discussion going. Team work is needed to achieve anything big in life. The same applies to betting where we need to vet tons of information to finalize the most important criteria’s/factors which will decide a winner!

        I like Jared, Bhambri,Bublik and Benneteau to win. Checked this MU.

        Haven’t double checked it yet. Time is just running like hell. Can anyone stop this damn time thing?lol

        Stan be a good boy and I will see what I can do to get you employed by Mark Suckerberg (who will suck all your time & energy to make himself a bigger billionaire!lol)!Ha,ha,ha…

        • Very funny Roger!
          I am on the road right now and i might not post on time, if i have the time and do some little research, i will post them if the matches haven’t started.

          • Thnx stan. Happy, I made you smile/laugh!

            Waiting for your juicy picks and analysis!

            I remain your ROGERlicious!

            Where is Ben the Aussie tennis guru and other experts? I hope Federer didn’t still all your money yesterday with his upset win(upset because 90% of people on this planet were on Nadal!lol)

            I lost on Over(followed official pick of 3 sets match with win for nadal) but won big on 1.5 sets Fed and +2 fed.

            • You know that i placed a bet that Roger will win in 2 slips, i also went with the under 23.5 games.

              I told you and others that R. Federer will win Shanghai from the beginning and in the finals, he is not a choke artist like N. Kyrgios, K. Anderson etc.

in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
