Michael Lammer v Albert Montanes

I know this is perhaps a hasty bet getting in from the off as they quite often go tits up when I do! However even a mug like Montanes shines out as exceptional value here at 1.38! I thought about getting on earlier when he was 1.40 but was too late for that. If Montanes doesn't win this comfortably in 2 he should pack up now! I know he is a mug on hardcourt but Lammer is no star either!!

This is where it is always best to wait for the Mrs to go to bed before punting. She's jabbering away at me and next thing I know Montanes has been Broken!!!

2*-1 Break back please!!! 0-15 ... 0-30 ... 15-30 ... 15-40 ... Take one please!! ... Break!!

2-2* Now hold please Montanes brain fart over I hope!! Holds to 15.

2*-3 Let's have the break now then please Albert! 30-30 get the BP!!! ... 30-40 Take IT!!! ... Deuce! Jeez the Betfair stream is sooo far behind it makes it almost impossible to watch! ... BP #2 ... This time? ... Yes!! Break!!

2-4* Now then consolidate it please Albert!

And all green at 1.11 for £705.72 on both

Liverpool v Reading

I have safeguarded some of my earlier winnings now by withdrawing £2,500. It still leaves me with a nearly £3,000 bank but it's nice to make a hefty withdrawal too :-) I think after this I may take another £500 or £1,000 too I'll see.

FA Cup 3rd Round Replay. I lost backing Liverpool the first time they met as it ended 1-1. This time I've gone for over 1.5 goals.

Didn't get in from the off though, I waited till 27mins before getting on at 1.44. Just £1,000 stake too. No sense blowing my bank just because the tennis isn't on yet!

Uh oh Torres going off injured!

Reading have had the chances to be fair. Liverpool are not playing well AGAIN!

1-0 Gerrard to the rescue on the stroke of half time!!

This is where it becomes a bit tricky with big bets. Trying to lay off at 1.29 for even green but not been matched yet! Ok all green now!

£111.28 on Both outcomes

1-1 after 90+4 mins!!!

Over 1.5 Goals Wins
Profit: £111.28

Elena Dementieva v Dinara Safina

The artist formally known as the "Demented One" won the 1st set 6-2 and has just broken for a 2*-1 lead in the 2nd.

I tried getting on at 1.20 at BP but missed it! Perhaps a tad hasty taking 1.13 on the break but hope I get away with it!!!

Hmmm 0-15! ... 0-30 ... 15-30 ... 30-30 ... 30-40 ... Deuce ... GP Take It!!! ... Deuce ... GP#2 this time? ... DF for Deuce! ... GP #3! I'm sure 3 must be her lucky number? Nope DF for Deuce (Again!) ... GP #4 this one???? Or perhaps we'll play for another few hours? Finally Holds!!

3-1* Now then another break would be desirable Elena! 15-0 ... 30-0 ... 40-0 ... 40-15 ... Safina slowed this match right down now!! Taking forever between points! Holds!!

3*-2 Hmm strange odds! @ 2*-1 Deme was 1.12/13 now at 3*-2 so nearer the finish line we have 1.17/18 !! that would have been a nice lay!!
15-0 ... 30-0 ... 40-0 ... and now we have the 1.12/13 odds again! Should be 1.08/9 now imho! And Holds to love.

4-2* Now for the break please! 0-15 ... 15-15 ... 30-15 ... 30-30 ... c'mon give us BP!! ... There it is!! 30-40!! ... Take it! ... Deuce ... GP ... Don't let her off that easily Elena!! ... Holds!

4*-3 NEED a hold here RAIN!!! No Go away rain!!! Mind you it is a good opportunity to see Dementieva's legs up close! They are bloomin marvellous!! Right now for the hold please! Will probably affect Deme more if they're not confident about slipping out there! And 0-15!! ... 15-15 ... 30-15 ... 40-15 ... 40-30 ... C'mon Elena close it out before the heavy rain comes FFS! Get on with it Safina you moaning tart! She can't just sit down!!! Deduct her a point!! Back on ... Holds!!

5-3* Break for GSM any one?? 0-15 .... LOL nice challenge Safina 0-30!! ...15-30 c'mon Elena don't let her off the hook this time!! ... 30-30 FFS!!! ... MP!!! TAKE IT!!!! ...

Arnaud Clement v David Ferrer

Arnaud Clement won the first set 7-5 and was 5-4* up in the 2nd!

I got on when Ferrer was facing 3 MP's at 0-40. Amazingly I got 1.15!!! Unfortunately didn't get it all matched!


Ferrer Wins 7-5 6-4
Profit : £326.00

Lol Just had it pointed out that of course Clement Won!! Doesn't change the Profit though!

Jelena Dokic v Shahar Peer

I really thought that Peer was a very big price before the start! No honestly I did!! I even posted about it in the chatter!

However that is all well and good because I didn't actually put any money on even though her SP was in the 1.60's!

Peer won the 1st set 6-2 and held to love in the first game of the second to go 1-0* up. That is when I lumped on at a paltry 1.11 hoping that it will continue to be one way traffic!!

Peer had her chances that game but Dokic held to 40!!

1*-1 Peer needs to keep her level up now then! 0-15 here we go!! ... 15-15 this match is being played at one heck of a pace!! ... 30-15 ... 40-15 ... holds!

2-1* Let's kick on then Peer! 30-30 ... Pffft 40-30 ... Holds.

2*-2 Looks like this set may be tighter! 0-15 ... DF for 0-30 C'mon Peer get a grip love! 15-30 ... 30-30 ... 40-30 ... Deuce ... GP ... DF for Deuce!! ... GP ... Holds

3-2* Now let that be the end of Dokic's challenge please! 0-15 ... 0-30 ... 15-30 ... 15-40 Take it! ... 30-40 ... DF For the BREAK!!

4*-2 Now then Jelena nothing more than a whimper now as you go out please! Hold to Love!!

5-2* Break for GSM anyone?

Peer Wins 6-2 6-2
Profit: £427.03

Sara Errani v Kateryna Bondarenko

Errani won the 1st set 7-6 but Bondarenko soon opened up a 0-3* lead in the 2nd!

Errani fought back to 3*-3 though which is when I lumped on at 1.66. The momentum is with her after 3 straight games so a hold now and it may soon be over!!! 1.66 is higher than after just nicking the 1st set so shouldn't be that high after 3 straight games!! Anyway it's deuce!! .. GP ... Holds!!!!

4-3* Now give me a break and I'll be in clover!!! 0-15 C'mon Sara!!! ...  0-30!!! ... 0-40!!! Take IT!!! ... 15-40 ...  30-40 Don't make me regret not greening!! FFS Deuce!! ... GP ... How did that happen? Holds!!

4*-4 Please Hold I could have greened up for £1100 on both then!!! The greed gets you in the end!! 15-0 ... 30-0 ... 30-15 ... 40-15 Bring it home baby!!! ... Holds!!!

5-4* Gotta be Break for GSM???? Surely???? I think this game decides the outcome for me! I've layed off £1,000 at 1.26 anyway so Here we go!!! 15-0 ... 30-0 Not what I wanted! ...30-15 that's it fight Sara put the pressure on! ... 30-30 ... 40-30 ... Deuce Get a MP!!! Please! ... ACE!! WTF GP ... Deuce c'mon get the MP this time!!! ... Pffft GP ... Deuce ... 3rd time lucky? Nope GP!! ... Deuce #4!!! ... 2nd serve ... Match Point!!!! TAKE IT!! YESSS!!!

Verdasco won the first set 7-5 and it was 2-1* in the second when I got on at 1.19.

Hoping for a break straight away! My God didn't realise it 0-40 already while typing!!! Break!! LOL

Rezai won the first set 6-3 and was 30-0 up in the first game of the 2nd set when I decided to get involved at 1.45. Hoping that Pennetta just tanks this now to prepare for Aus Open.

Alexsandra Wozniak v Kirsten Flipkens

Flipkens won the first set 7-5 and has just broken for a 3*-2 lead in the 2nd!! I know that my head keeps telling me that the sensible bet would be to lay Flipkens at 1.26 not back her.... nbut I can't help myself!! LOL

Please Hold Kirsten!!! 15-0 ... 15-15 ... 30-15 Odds not moved for that point!! ... 30-30 ... 40-30 .... Take It!!! ... Deuce!! ... Odds gone mad!! GP and same odds as 0-0??? Punish them my little Belgian Beauty!! (No that isn't referring to you Rev!) Holds!!!

Richard Gasquet v Benjamin Becker

Gasquet won the first set 6-2 but has just been broken to go 0-2* down in the second. A good time I think to get on hoping for a break back!! Odds 1.24/5

0*-3 Well not as I planned!! Becker held to love! Needs to hold here then odds are now above sp for one break up!!! Wish I'd waited now!

Hmm 0-15 ... DF for 0-30!! WTF is this??? Did someone tell him I'd backed him? 15-30 ... 15-40!!! Becker hit a shot long in that rally :-( ... 30-40!!! ... Deuce ... GP ... Holds!! Clutch serving!! LOL

1*-4 As long as Gasquet keeps holding I can see him getting the break he needs. Especially as Becker is German so will probably choke if forced to serve for the set! ;-) Holds to 15

2-4* Now put the squeeze on please!! 0-15 ... 15-15 got to do better on 2nd serves than that! ... 15-30 better! ... ooof 30-30 ... BP Take it!!! 2nd serve ... DF!!! BREAK!!!!

Kohlschreiber v Bellucci

Well I hope this isn't a sign of things to come as I've already made my first error of the night!! Meant to withdraw down to £1,000 but I've manged to take out £100 too much and left £900! Oh well I've made worse errors let's hope that's the only one tonight!!

Kohlschreiber won the first set 6-4 however neither was holding particularly well so I waited for him to finish his service game before getting involved.

He held for a 6-4 1-0* lead so I lumped on at 1.19. Unfortunately I wasn't quite all matched as he went on to break!!

2*-0 Leaving the bet to run here praying for another hold!! From 40-15 to Deuce!! BP!! What a muppet!! Are they playing on blancmange? Deuce ... GP ... Deuce hang on different score on sb's? It's game though!!!

3-0* Now another break to settle the nerves?

4*-0 Thank you :-) That's me out!!

5-0* Bagel anyone?

Kohlschreiber Wins 6-4 6-1

Profit: £148.90
