WEDNESDAY ............

Bit frustrating yesterday, Greece never made any real attempt to try and qualify and it is good for the game that they are now on their way back home. South Korea were perhaps a little fortunate to take a point from Nigeria in the end, but were in the driving seat before that and a draw meant that we collected on our bet @ 3.50 for them to qualify from the group, so, not all bad news.

Nicolas Mahut was 2-1 up in sets and with a mini break in the fourth set tie break, before John Isner fought back and play was suspended with the pair tied at two sets all. Mahut traded as low as 1.10 in running yesterday and win or lose we got great value with the frenchman and that is all we can ask from any bet. Hopefully he can come out all guns blazing this afternoon.

I am not writing much today, for what it is worth I am very keen on both England and the USA to win . Surely Algeria will have to come out of their defensive shell at some stage and then I feel the ultra fit and speedy US forwards will take advantage. However, today is going to be my party day of the competition, as I cannot be certain that there will be any other opportunities if England were to mess things up yet again, so I am off to watch the game on a big screen with a few beers.

Enjoy the games, good luck !
