A Tennis Theme

What a day for tennis, with the Davis Cup final starting in Spain. I traded the first couple of sets in the Stepanek game before i went out for dinner. I was stunned to come home this evening to find he had lost in five long sets. What a great game i imagine that was. Better still what a great trading game ! I had a dabble before i went out and managed to get £100, but there must have been lots of opportunities there.
Before that,this afternoon i watched the Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall which was shown live on ITV4. Great to see some of the older players getting it on. I was surprised how fast the surface was, and if i had to have a bet i would go for Goran to be the winner, because it suits his style of play.
Had a trade on the Cash/Rafter game and after thinking that was a mistake it turned round for me to make a £220 profit.To the racing and Equine gave another Tennis name,the lovely Sabatini which was running in the 1.50 at Lingfield. I didnt get the advised price but got on at 5/2. It then drifted slightly out to 11/4 before the off but then flew home from the back to win in the last few strides. Luckily for me i traded the race before the off, and had a free bet which i didnt bother greening up until the end.

The above is a different Sabatini !The second Equine horse Across The Sands never really figured in the 6.50 and ended up 4th, scuttling the each way part of the bet.Punters Profits bad luck continued with the horse they gave out getting collared on the line. So no winner there but also no damage done as i put an in running lay at 1.10 just in case, and it traded at 1.03 !
The only bad point of the day were the four nags that i picked. They all ran very poorly and didnt figure at the business end of the races.
So a great day with another £500 banked.
