Lmao well for starters Schiavone had been in the top 20 and made it past 4rd of 2/4 Slams.....has Briatni ever been ranked even top 40? And has she even made it past a 3rd of a major:confused:

She's too busy learning how to pole dance since table dancing didn't work out for her so well.

Remember how she was in doubt for the YEC though? Then comes back and trounces everyone. The final against Woz was close, but that's only because Kim took it too easy at 6-3 4-1, and totally lost concentration. She ended up winning the third set relatively easily.

May 1st, 2011, 08:46 AM
Yep, this is why I would put some money on her. By the way, does anyone remember which was the odd for Schiavone last year?

From May 2010:
Here is odds of Bet365 odds, worlds global bookmaker which is very involved in tennis (they so often have live streams and ATP/WTA live betting options on their site):

2.6 Justine Henin
6.0 Jelena Jankovic
6.5 Serena Williams
13 Venus Williams
15 Samantha Stosur
15 Aravane Rezai
17 Elena Dementieva
19 Svetlana Kuznetsova
21 Victoria Azarenka
21 Caroline Wozniacki
23 Ana Ivanovic
26 Dinara Safina
26 Yanina Wickmayer
26 MJ Martinez Sanchez
34 Vera Zvonareva
51 Maria Sharapova
81 N Li
81 F Pennetta
81 A Radwanska
81 N Petrova
81 Shahar Peer
81 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
101 Jie Zheng
101 F Schiavone
101 D Cibulkova
101 C Suarez-Navarro
...etc


Odds of all other notable bookmakers is much more similar with this Bet365 odds than any of previous presented in this thread so far.

If this was a pattern.. players with the odd 101 at the moment are Peer, Pironkova, Dulko, Kirilenko, Jovanovski, Safarova, Rybarikova, Peng. Only Dulko of them has won a title on clay this year (Acapulco), like Schiavone had Barcelona last year.

Also these big odds are not very accurate. If someone goes and puts a decent sized bet on Rodina or Namigata to win it all, then bookies will immediately shorten their odds. Which does not mean that their chances to actually do it, would be any higher than before.

Someone must be very bored or rich (or both) when he is putting decent sized bets on Rodina or Namigata ...I know that it was just an example..but...you know how it sounds? Namigata a RG champion...DEAD. That´s too much also for me.

Oops we found already a potential bettor on Namigata - Ballabsher.
Don´t be surprised if Namigata will be on the same odd as Schiavone tomorrow:p

Lucemferre
May 1st, 2011, 01:24 PM
I really have no idea who's gonna win.If Wozniacki reaches the final I think she will win because from the new generation she is the one with most experience and somewhat mentally tough.Although I'm sure she will be nervous too but her game won't be affected much from nerves compared to ballbashers.

Clijsters is a mystery now.If sheis healthy she can win this but she is definitely not unbeatable on clay. I dont know.. Jankovic always has a chance at FO.Her problem is she is simply not a champion. She will lose like a loser again if there is a player across the net that isn't afraid of winning and her form is worse than last year. Stosur will be tough to beat,she has experience at the FO but win? Schiavone why not again?:tape:

So many questions..Can Vika remain healthy for two weeks?:o Will Julia carry her form to FO?

:shrug:

May 1st, 2011, 01:29 PM
I think the odds could change based on Madrid & Paris.
Someone like Azarenka or Jankovic could get bet more if they win 1 of these.
With Wozniacki, she has to play well just to get to R of 16 here.

If I could choose one, I would probably go with Jankovic. Quite decent odd and no THAT impossible to win.

Decent sized bets in these low limit bookies (bet365, bwin, willhill) are not that big at all :p

Example, bet 365 has a 1200 euros win limit on RG women´s winner market. So, if I would like to back Dulko to win @ 201, then maximum bet would be 6 euros.

If I were forced to make one of those bets today I would pick Azarenka.

Some of those odds are just laughable. I would gladly bet my life savings against Venus and Na Li if someone gave me 1/25 odds on it.

There is huge over-round on these odds. Those 301 decimal odds for the biggest outsiders are for the most part way too low. Decimal odds on Wozniacki is 4.5, which translates into 22 percent. However, that doesn't take over-round into account. In reality they may have estimated her as low as 15-16 percent.

If Schiavone can be a Roland Garros winner, Safarova can do it too.

The hottest favourite is and has been since her match against Kim in Miami Azarenka.

She is like Safina from 08 or 09 coming to the FO.

Stosur, Goerges, Pavlyuchenkova, Kvitova and Li have a chance, too. Wozniacki absolutely wont win it. She is playing terribly at the moment.

May 8th, 2011, 04:30 PM
Even considering everything, Clijsters should be the #1 favourite. Winning a Slam is all about mental and being able to raise your game when needed. Safina was clearly the best claycourter in 2009 and look what happened in the final, for example.

colt13
May 8th, 2011, 04:37 PM
The hot 4 right now seem to be Kvitova>Azarenka>Goerges>Wozniacki. Done in this order because the one on the fare left has won the last two matches against the other, except for the Azarenka/Goerges RET. So out of curiosity, I decided to see if any had bad losses in slams, then picked most of the top 10. Obviously looking at the list, you see the effect of Serena on the draw. In fact of the 10 players listed, the only ones that havent lost to Serena or Venus in the last 5 slams(since the beginning of 2010) are Wozniacki and Jankovic. Jankovic is 3-3 in slams against the duo, and 10-9 overall, while Wozniacki is 0-6 overall, but never having played either at a slam.

Kvitova-Zvonareva, Clijsters, Serena, Sophie Ferguson, Serena
Azarenka-Li, Dulko, Kvitova, Dulko, Serena
Goerges-Sharapova, Wickmayer, Bartoli, Serena, Wozniacki
Wozniacki-Li, Zvonareva, Kvitova, Schiavone, Li
Schiavone-Wozniacki, Venus, Dushevina, Winner, Venus
Stosur-Kvitova, Clijsters, Kanepi, Schiavone, Serena
Sharapova-Petkovic, Wozniacki, Serena, Henin, Kirilenko
Li-Clijsters, K.Bondarenko, Serena, Schiavone, Serena
Jankovic-Peng, Kanepi, Zvonareva, Stosur, A.Bondarenko
Zvonareva-Clijsters, Clijsters, Serena, Rodionova, Azarenka

Li might have a questionable loss, but has lost to the eventual winner in 4 of the last 5 slams. Kvitova, Stosur and Zvonareva have in 3. What the stats show is that Kvitova is ready.

Hey, if other people want to give those in the know better odds for picking Sharapova, that sounds like justice to me! It doesn't affect Masha whether the betting people think she's a favorite or not. So long as she gets a fair seed, we can't really invoke justice.

Roookie
May 20th, 2011, 04:13 AM
Seems about right to me. But I'd give the edge to Caro over Vika. Wozniacki will have the top seed cake walk draw to the second week, and I feel like the players that can beat her (Georges, Kvitova, Sharapova) will have a tougher time getting far. She could end up playing Cibulkova in the QFs, Vika in the semis and Stosur in the final = First GS.

What do the odds mean, eg, Sharapova 7?

I don't understand... Why are Woz and Aza more of a favourite than Sharapova despite having not won a slam and Sharapova being in much better form than them:confused:?!?! There is no justice in this world:o

If Sharapova is your winnerpick, wouldn't you want the odds to be as high as possible. I know I would.

how do you mean?
with $1 bet, you can win $8. 8-1= $7 is your actual income.

With much the same logic Kim should be the outright winner up there.:rolleyes:

There is justice. A week ago Sharapova was 25/1. Lucky suckers who put money on then are gonna hardout capitalise.

If Maria wins she probably has to beat Kim and Vika to make the final.
That's not easy.
I would make Caro the favorite based on the draw.

Hey, if other people want to give those in the know better odds for picking Sharapova, that sounds like justice to me! It doesn't affect Masha whether the betting people think she's a favorite or not. So long as she gets a fair seed, we can't really invoke justice.

Well I agree that its a good thing for the betters, but I just can't stand seeing Woz and Aza being more of a favourite in the bookies' eyes:shrug:

Caro would lose to Stosur in the quarters. Book it.

6.00 Victoria Azarenka
6.50 Caroline Wozniacki
8.00 Maria Sharapova
11.00 Samantha Stosur
11.00 Kim Clijsters
11.00 Vera Zvonareva
11.00 Petra Kvitova
17.00 Jelena Jankovic
17.00 Julia Goerges
21.00 Francesca Schiavone
26.00 Svetlana Kuznetsova
26.00 Na Li

So Caro's chances has been lowered. Shows what hell of a draw she's got.:eek:

What's so good about this is that nobody knows.
Vika might be the favorite, but she just lost to Kvitova, and they're in the same quarter.
No one's sure if Kim can peak in week 2.
No one's sure about Stosur this year or Wozniacki on clay.

Its really wide open now. Wasnt the case last year. Because Henin was there. Then Serena, then Stosur because she beat both.

Everyone is guessing this year

Of course it's a guessing game, otherwise there aren't any bettings.

Look at it this way ~ Goldikova against some Group 3 mares is less of a guessing game than Goldikova against Frankel, Canford Cliffs, and a field of Gr1 males.

Frankel, easily. He's the best horse to set foot on this planet since Carbine. :bounce::bounce:

Its quite interesting how uncertain the bookies are with huge variance in available odds.

Wozniacki 4.50 - 6.50
Sharapova 5.50 - 6.50
Azarenka 5.52 - 6.00

Wozniack to beat Caro 9.00 - 32.00
Caro to beat Wozniack 1.01 - 1.03
