I have spent the last hour looking at these write ups and stats about the Nadal's match with fish, looking at stats from previous matchups, trying to figure out when Nadal retires, etc. I can justify the time spent on capping if the wager wins but this is ridiculous. This is Rafael Nadal!
I was watching that match with Del Potro and he did look in pain and did drop a set to Potro but still went on to beat Potro in 4 sets. Potro supposedly referred to Nadal as "lying" about his injury when talking to the chair umpire. I did read a funny comment in sports illustrated about Nadal timeouts
"He doesn't always take medical time outs, but when he does, it's always at a very critical time in the match. He's Rafa Nadal -- the most mysterious tennis player in the world. "Stay Injured, my Friends!!"
-- Vijay Kalpathi, Houston
Nadal had MRI scan on his foot after his match Monday and the results were negative and it was hard judging anything from his practice hit with Evan Hoyt, a junior player from Britain. I dont care if I lose this wager tomorrow, I always do this, bet against Nadal because of some perceived weakness and its always foolish.
Anyone who religiously believes in the importance of line moves in tennis should seriously look at the opening line with Nadal and the present line. This is Nadal and -550 and -5.5 games is a gift even if I lose this wager. Fish is in the greatest part of his tennis career at 29 of all ages. he is fuit , serving great and I wouldn't mind losing this wager at all.
He retired in the aussie against Murray and saved me some money so hopefully if the foot is hurting him he wil retire here.
Looking at the stats and number on Fish, he's never won a Masters Series title, never won a Slam, , and never been to the final four of a Slam and never been in the top ten for any significant period of time.
Nadal has a 46-9 record on grass, including a 17-match winning streak at Wimbledon. He is 49-7 in 2011 and has not lost at Wimbledon since the 2007 final. He has lost one set this wimbledon .One set.
He has not lost at Wimbledon since the the 2007 final.LOL
I will be happy to lose this but I spent way to much time researching this crap with the totals,the injury,etc.. This is Nadal
Nadal -5.5 -115 5dimes Biggest wager of wimbledon for me.
I have some parlays outstanding from yesterdays thread , I just need murray and djokovic to win for those.
Adding Nadal/Murray /Djokovic
I thought about Tsonga but am staying away form that and the total after looking at this.Tsonga is too erratic and this is Fed on grass.
Federer -5.5 -115 5dimes
What the hell. You know its going to be these four
Nadal/Murray/Djokovic/ Federer parlay -144 5dimes
