Bet 16 - Alona Bondarenko v Nadia Petrova

I just can't resist this one. Odds are astronomically out in my very humble opinion. I would go as far to say that in my book I would have had Alona as a very slight favourite.

Crunch time I guess for this challenge and really putting myself on the line here. No way on this earth is Petrova a 1.5 shot here.

All in LAY before the off

Lay Nadia Petrova 1.51 £146.45 £221.14 £74.69
Ref: 9241020510 Bet matched: 17:22 21-Oct-09


1*-0 Break straight off the bat now green for 34.00 or let it ride???
2-0* Odds almost the same as at 1-0 :(
2*-1 Alona had a chance to break again but Petrova held Maybe should get out now??
2-2* Break :( Now we need another please Alona!!
Crazy low odds on Petrova here we nearly had 3-0 yet when 2-2 people backing her down to 1.4??? 2-2 30-30 and still below sp!!
BP!!! Take it!!! Saved :( BP#2 This Time!!! Saved with an ace :o
BP#3 3rd time lucky? Noooo :(

Bondarenko should have been 4*-1 up now instead it's 2*-3. Sometimes it just doesn't go your way. Still a hold here and she'll get Petrova next time :)
3-3* Nice service game now apply the pressure!!

Jeez 3-3* deuce and still SP!!
3*-4 Held from Deuce :( Another strong hold needed to wake up this market then!!
4-4* Now for the break and then hold for set :)
4*-5 Petrova holds to love is ominous :( C'mon Alona keep it going girl!!
5-5* A great time for a hold to love :)
FFS 5-5 30-30 and 2 ticks above SP??????

Possibly should have let that one ride! But if you look at the fact I thought Alona should have been slight fav then my green on both is about the same as I should have got for an outright win for Alona according to my book. So Happy days :)
