Terry Jenkins v Mark Dudbridge (Darts)

Haven't got a clue what I am doing here!!! Where's Murrayfield with his darts knowledge when I need him. LOL

However score says 2-0 Jenkins in the 1st set (Best of 5) and market puts Jenkins at 1.23 so that's good enough for me :)

I've heard of Jenkins but not the other fella so that's an added bonus!! :D

1st set to Jenkins Odds 1.2.
D'oh Jenkins broken in opening leg of 2nd set :( odds into the 1.30's
1 Set all Odds 1.45. Not liking this!! Lets get the next one Terry :)

My God this sport is too quick for my feeble mind. I can only imagine what the markets must be up to in a tight finish!!! Would take a lot of mental training to get used to it. And it's not often enough to train on :(

Bloomin eck Terry throw the break away for 2-2 in this set pffft odds hit the 1.80's's.

Back comes Terry 2-1 sets and now has the throw 1.22 odds

Broken straight away!! Is this wta??? :D
LOL it is WTa break back!!!

And I'm out at 1.16 I can't take this I'd have a coronary if I punted on this all the time!! Great fun though for a tenner or such like in the future though :)

Marco Chiudinelli v Gael Monfils

I keep following a different tack here today and we have yet another in from the off here. Monfils, as long as he turns up, should have far to much for Chiudinelli. The only concern is if Monfils goes missing in action. My fears are somewhat alleviated by the fact that it is a 500 tournament. He still has a good chance of making the year end finals in London if he can string some results together this autumn so I think he will win. Chiudinelli ahs had some good wins and runs recently but the only real player that Monfils would be wary of is Safin and that is in name only as he is a spent force as he reaches the end of his farewell season.

4*-5 Saved a bp only to hand another back which Chiud takes. I thought I said no drama!!! Oh well break for the set now and serve 1st in the 2nd.
Means I can use my winnings that are now settled on this too.

Stanislas Wawrinka v Simon Greul

Really fancy Wawa do take this easily and as such I have lumped on from the off again at 1.28. I know quite a few short priced favs have gone down here but Wawa badly needs these points so I have faith.

Back Stanislas Wawrinka 1.27 £119.20 £32.18

1-0* Confident start from Stan with a hold to love.
1*-1 Another hold to love.
2-1* Hold to love!!
2*-2 We have a return point! Only 1 mind you ;)
3-2* Blimey Stan's 1st serve has vanished this game and gives 30-40 But wins with 3 1st serves in a row including 2 aces!

3*-3 Hold to 30
4-3* Hold to love. Back firing again Stan.
5*-3 Break at his 3rd chance Odds 1.10

Back Shuai Peng 1.11 £99.84 £10.98
Ref: 9117524684 Bet matched:11:20 07-Oct-09

Hoping for a quick win and back into Tsonga match.

5*-3 Hold to love. Typical!! She'd better serve it out now!!!

5-4* Sharapova has 15-40. Peng savesthe 1st but not the 2nd!! :( Should have stayed on Tsonga! Break for the match now please Peng :) Odds 1.53 would have been nicer!

Peng has 15-40 saves them both though. Meanwhile Tsonga breaks and is serving for the match.Peng gets a 3rd Match Point and a 2nd serve which she takes!!

Peng wins 6-2 6-4

Mischa Zverev v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

I'm not a great fan of Tsonga and originally looked to lay him here with a view to trade but even I think this should be relatively straight forward for him. As such I have decided to lump on from the off at 1.18.

Back Jo Wilfried Tsonga 1.18 £99.84 £17.97
Ref: 9117247734 Bet placed: 10:20 07-Oct-09

1*-0 Of course I should have remembered that nothing is ever straight forward with the brainless one as he offers up an opening service game of 15-40! He fights back to Deuce only to hand Zverev a 3rd bp this game which he takes!

1-1* Break to 15! That was a nice opportunity for the lay to backers early on. Now hopefully the Tsonga express is departing on it's non stop journey to 1.01 :)

1*-2 Hold to 40. When it was 0-30 I was beginning to wonder if in fact this was one of those crazy Japanese game shows and they were making them play on a court covered in mushy peas and playing with frying pans as racquets.

2-2* Hold to 15. Most convincing service game so far from a 0-15 start.

2*-3 15-40 to deuce but holds this time. Really not an impressive start from Tsonga but he is still scraping by. Probably a break coming now.

3-3* Hold to 30. Could do with at least one comfortable hold from Tsonga this set.

3*-4 Finally! A hold to 15 including his first ace. This really should be this easy.

4-4* Great response from Zverev holds to 15 from 0-15 down.

4*-5 Hold to love with 3 Aces!!! Hello, I think Tsonga has swapped his frying pan for a racquet! Now break for the set please :)

4-6* Break!!!! From 0-40 Zverev saves all 3 BP's!!!!! But showing he is a true modern professional he hands Tsonga another BP straight away which he takes!!

1st set to Tsonga. Made hard work of it but turned it on when it mattered at the business end of the set. Odds now 1.08. Gonna stick for now unless I decide to get involved in the Sharapova v Peng match which is also on now.

1-1* Tsonga had 15-40, Zverev saved them both! He even has GP but back to BP twice more but saved again before finally holding. Zverev 1/5 BP Tsonga 2/9 BP!!!!
