Seven's coverage seems to get worse by the minute.

Novak in a wheelchair, Shane Warne! Spare me!

And the Australian Open site fits in with the bad tone.

Neglecting to tell us we can watch any match we choose live on 7tennis.

Took me a while to learn that.

But at least I can now watch actual tennis that interests me.

I watched this match in its entirety. During the third and fourth sets I was trying to remember an Australian in any sport who was such  a disgrace to the "AUS" after his or her name. I still can't think of one to match this clown. Not only was he a disgrace to those initials but also to the Sport itself and not to mention he was belittling of his opponent. One of the other sad aspects of the match was the crowd support for him. Says a lot about them. And what about the insipid commentary ? Poor old Lleyton won't open his mouth and say what a disgrace this cove is because he wants him in the Davis Cup squad. Guess what Lleyton , we don't. Kitty got it right at the Olympics. We don't require these types.

Andreas Seppi

My nomination for Australian of the Year

As for Sam Stosur -- watching her play is like watching an opera
                              -- you know it's going to end in disaster but you hope and hope that it won't for once...

Anyone watching should consider the Chase The Ace promotion at William Hill.

$25 headvhead bet and you get a bonus for every Ace your player serves.

Bonuses range from 0.50c (86% chance) to $10 (1.0% chance) per Ace regardless if you win or lose the bet.

They bet around 106% on the head to head market so I think the bonus is more than enough to make every men's match +ev.

Probably have to be a bit more selective in the women's comp.

I had $25 on Rodger ans was lucky enough to spin the $10 and also got $5 on Mischa Zverev.   emthup

The locals seem to be getting carried away betting on Aussie Johanna @13.

All #9 Konta has to do, is beat something like:

#17 Wozniacki
#6 Cibulkova
#2 Serena
#3 Randwanska/#5 Pliskova
#1 Kerber/#7 Muguruza

Good luck with that!

If Novak was having foot problems, why didn't he try some antiIstomine medication?

I was testing out William Hill's promotion so I had $25 on Kyrgios at $1.08 and got 50 cents each ace he served, got $14 in bonus bets although I lost my$25, have since backed two other players, with reputation of serving aces, both have won, but each time I only got 50 cents per ace.

Just a marketing tool by William Hill, I doubt too may punters will get $10 per ace, unless player has no chance of winning their match.

Who did you pick that won and only served two aces? You're not betting on the women are you?

I've made $136 in bonuses today with 2 games still in progress.

My highest bonus today was $2 for Thiem, who's still playing and has 10 aces so far, but I've got $10 Federer, $5 Seppi and $5 Mischa Zverev alive for tomorrow.

This is actually a very good bonus.

This may help ..... sort the link by Ace%.

http://www.tennisabstract.com/cgi-bin/leaders.cgi


In the women back Serena. I'd also back Karolina Pliskova and Garcia but lay them on betfair for a loss - hoping the aces will cover the loss at 50c per ace but having the chance to hit something bigger.

I'm just cranky I didn't bet on any of the first round matches which included Ivo Karlovic who is ranked 2nd in serves who hit 75 aces in his opening match.  :clap2:

With a 1% chance of getting a $10 bonus bet and 86% chance of getting a 50 cent for aces served , the spinning wheel used in their promotion would have the 1% ( $10 bonus) )for players at long odds to win their match, therefore you will probably lose your stake, whereas the 86 % (50 cent bonus)  is for players at long odds on, where you may win your bet but get little for their aces.The most desirable outcome is for a match to go for five sets, more aces will be served, and of course you win your bet.Having $30 on Murray @ $1.06 to win $17 in bonus bets ( 34 aces , and Murray is not noted for serving aces ) seems a bit like buying money.Of course all those bonus bets are conditional on their terms.
As somebody once said " there is no such thing as a free drink ".

Well I've spun one $10 - Federer tonight and two $5 M Zverev and Seppi today ...... all favourites.  I backed Serene next round and got $2.

I missed the first round matches (half the tournament) but I'm convinced if you bet in every men's match you'll end up a handsome winner.

I'll  post a summary after the tournament is over but I've got $262 bonuses in the kitty from yesterday and today so far.

if you're going to watch the tennis it adds a bit of fun.

Not sure how you did that when the Ace spin only applies to your first win bet on each match.

Mischa Zverev out of nowhere serve volleying his way past Andy Murray was a pleasure to watch.

Had not been past the 2nd round of a major in his 10 year professional career and was 1,067 in the world 2 years ago.

Great story.  :clap2:

I've been saying for a long time  that serve and volley would beat the baseline robots.  Fed tried it but it's not natural to him. Hope we have someone here it is natural to and keeps it up.

My God that was a good semi.  :clap2:

The ages of the four finalists are 35 (Serena), 36 (Venus), 35 (Roger) and 30 (Rafa).

35 is the new 25......

What I was absorbed by was the $60 million plus matched on Betfair on that match.

During a UK workday day morning!

On a market we're barred from!

Looks like ~$1 Billion would be matched on the 4 Tennis majors.

Imagine how many horse races that's equivalent to!

No doubt the Williams sisters would have to be the greatest sibling champions in sporting history, I am aware two Russian brothers were world boxing champions, but for longevity and achievements the Williams sisters would have to be the best.
Don Bradman, Usain Bolt, Cassius Clay, Jack Nicklaus , Henry Armstrong, Rod Laver, Lester Piggott, Dawn Fraser have all been champions in their own sports , but if they had siblings I have never heard of them,although I have heard it said Dawn Fraser's brother  could not swim    :biggrin:
