Who will Win the Tour Championship?

Full Betting Odds [To be updated daily]


3-1 Favourite:GHOSTS

Only one of the Seeded Players to have had a good indoor season.

4-1:Kafelek

Afraid of no players reputation,and striking the ball well these past few weeks

5-1:Bionic 71

Mr Consistency,who has handled pressure well.

6-1:Pintaled

Tactics wise,looks one of the shrewdest in the field.

7-1:Sandg

No distractions this week off court,so could let rip.

8-1:MyPapaJe

Dangerous to rule this classy performer out.

10-1:Hantuchov

Worringly the World No.1 has done nothing of note in the Us Open lead up,and had a poor indoor season on the whole.

10-1:WTA Handicapper

Tends to finish in the top half of the table more times than the bottom after US Open win,but wont get the easy lead he had there.

12-1:KimClijsters4Ever

Quiet player who goes about her business very professionally

12-1:Bbypk

Form gone Awol the last month or so.This smaller field might suit more.

14-1:K&J Fan

Very talented,but possible over the top after long season.

14-1:JeNeSaisQuoi

Capable of winning,but needs A1 Game to beat her peers this week.

16-1:SpencerCarlos

Will be relying on the longshots to do well,if so could contend.

16-1:Geoffry

Been a long time since he threatened the latter stages of a tournament.

18-1:SpikeyAidanm

Lost the plot form wise indoors,but vibes are that the fire in his belly is burning again.

18-1:AndrewUk

Found his game from nowhere when needed to last week,was it a one off or will he build on it here.

Betting on Tennis is Fun

Just a post to say good luck to everyone!

I predict the 16th seed Andy will storm to victory as a total outsider

Also good luck to Luis, Aidan, Shane, WTA Handicapper, sandg and all the other people who are better PAW players than me this season

I am actually going to play as well, not in this thread of course, but I am going to make picks and I am going to post them in the PAW lockerroom thread in Chat Threads just to see how I would do anyway (and also because I can't wait until Fed Cup to PAW )

Good Luck everyone

Why do 16 players get to play when only 8 qualify in the WTA?
Why not let everyone play?
