    I've bet on Fed to win no slams this year at even money.

    I bet on Nadal to win the French at $1.50 i.e. you bet $1 and win 50c.

    I bet on Nadal to win slam at $8.60 (after he won Aust).

    Would anyone else like to put their money where their mouth is?

    ^^^^ I do everyday.

    The only money I make is on betting.

    You're pretty dumb to do that though. You have to wait till the end of the year for him to win a slam, @ odds of $8.60.

    You should have just bet on him to win each slam as it comes.

    1.50 for FO x 2.50 for Wimbledon x 3.20 for US = $12

    You would be able to get odds at around 12 instead of 8.60 if you just bet on each grandslam. Also this way if Nadal gets injured or isn't looking in very good shape, just before US for example, all you have to do is not back him for that GS.

    You're silly! :p

    Is there a market for Wimbledon and US Open? If not, it is pure speculation what the odds are. In any case, I only bet $10 so it's just a bit of fun.
