    Andy Murray V Novak Djokovic contest the AO Final Sunday morning UK time and looking at the head to head it is a very close mach up with Djokovic leading 4-3, Murray has won the last 3 and also both times they met in a final Murray was victorious. They both seem to have a good first serve with Djokovic getting a higher % in but Murray seems to have a slightly better second serve. Djokovic has been very impressive so far and generally getting better the longer the tournament has gone on and was simply superb against Federer. Murray was excellent against Melzer then a little bit scruffy in wins against Ferrer and Dolgopolov.
    Tough one to call but in my opinion I would say Djokovic is rightly favourite with the form he has shown so far and Murray will not be able to be passive otherwise that will play into Djokovic's hands.

    Djokovic looking the value

    Previous winner (beat Federer in the semi final then as well), playing as well as ever seen from him.

    Nadal overpriced, could be good value to back Murray if they meet in the other semi


    IMO

    I know there is a delay in the live pictures but even so I was miles behind everyone else doing the backing and by the time the 5 secs delay were up the odds has dropped as low as they were going to go and didnt drop any further even though the player went on to convert the game point.

    So back to the drawing board I think! All experience I suppose. I came out with a tiny 76p profit from the game but most of that came from lumping on Wawrinka at the end at 1.01.
    Hi Rozzy,

    If you are new to tennis trading, then why not have a look at the site by a guy called Tradeshark. Just search for" Tradeshark Tennis" and you should find it. I found it very helpful.

    The mens game is completely different than womens. Women, for the most part (except the obvious big servers) seem to rely more on breaking, than holding. As such, is a much better trading option, although, only because it is more volatile...

    Look for the break in the womens, and the hold in the mens.
    And I think, when somebody goes to 40-0 on their serve, the odds are pretty much locked into what they will be on the game win. So doesn't hurt to lay there, as there is very little down side.
    Pretty similar with 0-40. Against a strong server like maybe Roddick, 0-40 is often a good time to back him, as he often powers a couple of aces in against the tide. He attacks the first few points, miscalculates, because he knows he can just throw the good serve down.

    From what I have seen, there is less upside in backing somebody who looks like winning a game, as those who are down in the game. But the more likely it looks, the less the odds will move after it happens...

    Not a big tennis trader but these are the things I would look at (have, but don't wish to "suggest a strategy"..)
    If you are behind in time, you need a valid strategy, and an ability to read the game as you are not going to win on speed alone....

    Well, Federer ruled in straight sets 1-6, 3-6, 3-6, Wawrinka no chance.
    Let's see who He is up against in the next, Berdych or Djok....

    It's funny and interesting......
    Peter Lundgren, former coach for Federer but now with Wawrinka, knows everything about Roger.

    We know what happened with Safin, right ?

    Let me copy & paste a few words from Wiki....

    Prior to the 2005 Australian Open, Safin had caught fire towards the end of the 2004 season, thanks in part to his hiring of Peter Lundgren, and was seen as among the favourites for the title. The 2005 Australian Open was considered one of the most inspiring Grand Slams in the history of men's tennis by a lot of tennis critics. Safin had to beat Roger Federer, in the semi-Final 5-7, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (8-6), 9-7 with Safin saving a match point late in the fourth set when Federer missed a between the legs passing shot. In the final, Safin went on to beat hometown favourite Lleyton Hewitt 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in inspiring fashion.

    I am not saying Wawrinka going to win .....it's only something to think about

    If Fedex has a bad day...... anything is possible.

    But what a joy to watch His Genius in action against Robredo earlier today,
    when pushed to his limits, He can come up with some Extraterrestrial Orgasmic shots.
