Very exotic Johnny.  Good luck to you - it'll be a nice return if you win.

Yes, I won! Sao Paulo won the game 2-0 but I guess I was pretty lucky this time since Ceara played really well and even missed a penalty kick at 0-0. It was an extremely spectacular game, like most are in the Brazilian league, loads of chances on both ends and beautiful football throughout the 90 minutes.

Woooohoooo.  Congrats Johnny.  What a great result and sounds like it was a great game too.  What more could you ask.

Well done.

Thanks, it was a great game indeed. I stopped counting the goal scoring chances at some point :)

Wimbledon is the obvious choice for this week, it's the most important event of the month if you ask me. I'm hoping that it won't rain today so I placed a combo bet on multiple games that should be played today, here they are (I have also selected a doubles game):


Andy Murray v Richard Gasquet
    1/4 
Marcos Baghdatis v Novak Djokovic
    1/100 
Robin Soderling v Bernard Tomic
    13/100 
David Nalbandian v Roger Federer
    3/100 
David Ferrer v Karol Beck
    9/100 
Bryan B / Bryan M v Gonzalez M / Starace P
    1/50 
Mardy Fish v Robin Haase
    7/25 

And here is the betting slip from Sports Interaction:

Best of luck Johnny.  I definitely go along with your selections but I'm not holding my breath over the weather.  It's dull, cloudy and wet.  I really hope the day turns out to be as per the weather forecast i.e. hot and humid.

Got my fingers crossed for you.

Thanks Blue. I hope I won't have to wait until next Tuesday to see if it's a winning bet :)

Three games went my way so far, four to go:

[3] R Federer (SUI) d [28] D Nalbandian (ARG) 64 62 64
[10] M Fish (USA) d R Haase (NED) 63 67(5) 62 11 ret.
[1] B Bryan (USA) / M Bryan (USA) d M Gonzalez (ARG) / P Starace (ITA) 63 63

Currently watching Djokovic vs Baghdatis, Djokovic has won the first set but Baghdatis leads 3-2 in the second and just started to serve.

Baghdatis won the second set but Djokovic fought on and won the following two, well done! David Ferrer also won his game so I have five games that went my way, two to go.

But you can stop counting, fifth seed Robin Soderling got beaten by Bernard Tomic in straight sets! This surely is an upset and it ruins my bet, I really wasn't expecting Soderling to get beaten this early in the tournament.

Thanks Blue but I was a bit sloppy, I knew that Soderling had some physical problems in the previous game but I assumed that he was back in shape. He obviously wasn't, I should have thought about that.

This week's bet has to be related to Wimbledon again, don't you agree? :) I thought about betting on one of the semi finals, then I thought about keeping the bet for the final but then I finally made up my mind: I placed a bet on the winner!

With four men left in the competition I think that one of them really stands out and that is Novak Djokovic. Nadal is the favorite, that's because he is the current ATP number 1, but I think that Nole will be the new number 1 after Sunday's final.

So I put my money on Djokovic winning the tournament, here is the betting slip from Sports Interaction (US OK):

Best of luck Johnny.  It'll be a nice return if you win but what would the return have been had you bet at the beginning of the tournament?

EDIT:

I just had a look at my original Wimbledon post for outright winner and the odds were 7/2 for Djokovic so it wasn't too much different to what you managed to get.
