    I'm only 18 so not got lots of cash to gamble with haha...
    But put 60 on Murray to win US at the start of the tournament and then another 60 as like a free bet for depositing, and that paid just under £500, which is pretty huge for me!

    Jimmy Arias seems to have a hard on for Djokovic. Cant stop gushing over how great Djokovic is. Called him 'perfect'

    You've got to be able to convert break points if you want to beat the Big 3. C'est la vie.

    1st set in the bag.

    No1e in 2 quick sets without breaking sweat!

    How I wish Tsonga was in Fed's group!

    I'm rapidly approaching 100 and my best advice is: quit now!

    Djoko constantly on the verge of getting broken. The difference was not the game in this first set. It was the mental.

    Nope. Im sticking around :p

    Average djokovic takes the first set from a good tsonga who cant convert breakpoints, jo's mindset will be shot now, knowing that he had so many chances to break novak and didnt take any of them and now he's a set down to the #1 player.

    Novy's far from perfect today. But Tsonga's a walking Heartbreak Hotel

    Not disputing the YE No.1. Its well deserved. Just amused by Arias' seeming crush.

    I wonder how much the RG QF lingers in Tsonga's memory.

    Presumably the budget cuts meant the BBC couldn't afford to show every match, and rather than showing the prime time evenings ones they have to make do with the daytime matches, when people are at work.

    Like me :evil:

    I'm guessing these are Brit commentators? I'm sure Murray's become the media darling now. :)

    i heard from an inside British source they might stream a gluten filled air through the ventilation system if Djokovic might win.

    He was good in the first set he just couldnt convert any break points, if had converted just 1 of them then we might have a very different match right now.
