    Nadal has a big chance of winning. I'm not betting on Andy Murray here.

    That's the problem, Murray actually has a decent record against Djokovic on Hard. Djoko leads Nadal 8-4 on Hard, and he's having the best year of his career.

    Fucking hell, I wasn't speaking literally but now I shall explain my decision in full detail.

    I have a betting account on the Internet which I use for betting. This weekend alone I have made £120 profit. I make this profit by taking risks and a lot of the time it pays off. Novak Djokovic is favourite and so he should be, but if I bet £20 on him, I'd win a huge £10.40. If I bet the same amount on Nadal, I'd win £25. Rafael Nadal can win but if he doesn't then life goes on and I'm still £100 up, if he does then I'm £145 up. eek3

    The problem with that is, you bet on Djokovic, you win a little amount, you bet on Rafa, you only lose.

    Then I lose and be gracious in defeat. I'll still be £100 up on what I started with. If Nadal wins somehow, then I've made a good amount of money. alee

    Serena was given a whopping $2000 fine for berating the umpire.

    Yeah, that'll teach her.

    This is such a good match considering they're both baseline players. Djoko has been skewing an awful lot of forehands early in the second.

    Only just started watching this now, had £15 on Djoko earlier today. Looks like smart money.

    Can't remember seeing so many breaks in a mens final eek

    Suppose it's partly down to how great both players are at the baseline which almost nullifies the serving advantage.

    I wouldn't go that far but things are looking to be on the up for him. Djokovic still has plenty of time for his game to improve again.

    Rafa needs to win this set. I have money on Novak winning 3-1.

    Nope, Betfair only refunds bids if they retire in the first set. If Nadal were to retire now though, you'd get your winnings.

    It has it's advantages & disadvantages - I've had many an accumulator ruined because of a void bet due a retirement (despite getting the outcome right) Fuck you

    disappointed in nadal, he's playing like a pussy with his weak shots. djokovic has been more agressive and took his chances, while nadal has been playing safe.
