    is mladenovic on someone's payroll?

    back in the day, i lost a bunch of wagers on nikolay davydenko where he was favored like -400 to -600. i stopped wagering on him because i thought he was fixing matches. i know he was later investigated for it, but i don't remember if anything happened.

    after losing a couple wagers in the past on mladenovic, i got the same feeling and i've never bet on her again. point being, she's pulling the same shit right now against gracheva in the open.

    mladenovic won the 1st set 6-1. then she was up 5-1 in the 2nd. jumps up 15-0 her serve.. then loses it. still 5-2 lead. goes up 40-0 on gracheva's serve and proceeds to blow 4 match points. 5-3.. then 5-4.. then 5-5. eventually goes to the tiebreaker and mladenovic falls behind 0-5, loses 2-7.

    now gracheva is up 3-0 in the 3rd set. plenty of time left, but that shit looks rigged as hell

    That match was not rigged, that is Mladenovic for you, the most emotionally unstable player on tour. Also the most unbettable, if you wanna make a profit... can lose to anyone as a huge fav and can beat anyone as a huge underdog as well. Best course of action - never bet on a match with Mladenovic in it.

    She's been like that for several years now. She cares more about playing doubles

    I pay her $500 a week so she can tank a game at the US Open.

    Siegemund was at +1000 to win the 1st set. Sad I didn't take it.

    hard person to bet full match on when she wins 1st set these days against durable opponent I usually fade her 2nd set at least. few years ago when she was ranked like 13 or 14 she lost 15 matches in a row

    to be fair today....there was a double bounce not called. She should have won the 1st set 6-1, but bad sportsmanship and official never called the double bounce.

    granted she never should have lost being up 5-1, even 5-2, then 5-3 but she did win the set that was never called

    So athletes aren't allowed to choke anymore? Better yet, athletes aren't allowed to recover from a bad start and eventually win? It's sports. If there were never any comebacks, no one would watch.

    Andrej Martin just now up 5-0 vs Tommy Paul in the final set. 2 match points. Ends up losing it 5-7.

    This shit happens in women's but men's? Come on

    People love blaming big comebacks on the mafia, women being emotional, or whatever else they need to deflect blame away from their own poor decision. If you lose a bet, it was the wrong pick. Comebacks happen in every sport, to every gender, on every stage. Learn from it and move on.

    That's a bad way to look at it. If you pick a +300 dog and he goes to -10000 in play and loses, was that a bad pick? Just hedge for a 99% profit and suddenly it's a good pick.

    Should have bet more at 5-5. No way Martin was winning another game. Momentum too strong for Paul. You fukk up a big lead in sports 9 out 10 times you're mentally screwed for the remainder of the match.

    You will be much more successful, or at the very least more accepting of your losses, if you accept the fact that there is a right play and a wrong play to every game, match, etc. The right play is determined only by the final result, period. If you bet a +300 dog and they're up 1-0 5-1 40-0 and they lose the match, they were the wrong play.

    Way to be results oriented. So a big fav that makes a 1000 to 1 comeback was the right play before the game all along. No value on the dog, no siree.

    Let's put it this way, if you could bet on a coin flip, heads +150 tails -200, is betting on heads a wrong play just because it fell on tails? Only the long term value matters, not one damn bet. That's how you determine the right play.

    Also, according to the efficient market theorists, there is no such thing as a right play right before kickoff.

    The next toss is going to be tails. I got a feeling about this one: tails for sure. There's your "pick."
