I am looking at 3 or 4 bets today and will have the first online at around 12.30 cet.

Quite amazing in the tennis from Rome, we have the number 4 ranked player in the world, with 95 wins on clay and he is 18.5 to win his match ! The ridiculous thing is that he is still impossible to fancy, Rafa is heading towards 80 straight wins on dirt and will no doubt sweep Davydenko aside, like all the other pretenders.

In the other semi-final I was very close to taking Fernando Gonzalez, who, at circa 1.76 looks a reasonable price to see off Filippo Volandri, who has maybe done enough for one week. Gonzalez had a very productive end to 2006/ early 2007 and it was no surprise to see his form dip a little, it looks like it has returned at the right moment and it took the best of the best, to defeat him on the european clay circuit last season. Volandri is some way short of that level.

Back shortly.
