    OK, I know I said I wasn't going to play the ITF ladies but this one will be an exception since she's ranked 98. I just hope Jana Fett's big boobs don't get in the way of her swing.

    Parlay:
    Lajovic over Daniel & Fett over Galfi

    I debated about posting them. I don't post the ones with just one or two books. These bets are in Pin, Betonline, SIA, Bovada and Heritage so I felt they were widely available.

    Sorry William Hill doesn't offer these.

    I think I've learned my lesson with these big favorites in the ITF tournaments. I've lost a few bets on parlays where the big favorite fails horribly. I may still bet a few of the players, they're fun to follow. However, I think I'll lay off the big favorites.

    Im gonna try and be careful with this tourney with the guys who have played Beijing, 1st rounds may be tricky. Nice hits.

    I'm looking at fading Nadal with the handicap line. Donaldson is currently at +5 1/2 but it's juiced to -134 so I'll probably take +5.

    Turns out Zhang lost. There are quite a few Zhangs playing tennis so I probably saw the wrong one. Record has been updated above.

    I'm thinking about that too, but man, I'm getting traumatized by Nadal. He struggles when I stay away (Pouille) and covers when I bet against him (Dimitrov even after losing a set, Karen, Kyrgios). Hate that butt picking dude

    I hope to bounce back from yesterday's fiasco. I'm going to stick to on matches that are offered at most books (with maybe a few exceptions here and there). While I went 0-4 in this thread yesterday I did go 2-0 in my other tennis thread yesterday.

    Fangzhou Liu +5 over Sakkari
    Haase +3 1/2 over Gasquet
    Nara +5 over Shuai Zhang
    Aoyama +4 1/2 over Cabrera

    Yes! I feel pretty good about all 4 of these dog bets.

    Adding a 3-way parlay. The first two matches are tonight. The third is Monday night.

    Bautista-Agut over Chung
    Del Potro over Basilashvili
    Martin/Roger-Vasselin over Woo/Woo (doubles)

    That's not how you spell the last 2 last names in the doubles match. I had to sound it out because this board puts asterisks in when I include the proper spelling.

    Yep. Time to take a break.

    The only one that didn't lose is Liu and she plays tonight. Even Bautista-Agut loses.

    Bautista can be a punk at times, Im sure he went into the match mentally unprepared and though he'd get through rather easily. He made the final last year and was defending 600 points. Cant depend on that punk sometimes when he's supposed to win.

    I had him in a parlay as well, surprise defeat for sure, especially in straight sets. Chung is a good youngster, but still too inconsistent.

    Even Del Potro had a tough time with Basilashvili. It reminds me of the time Sloane won the US Open a few weeks ago and left in the 1st round of the next tournament I believe. Sometimes I think these players just don't put in a good effort in order to get rested.

    Thoughts on Poullie today? He should've beat nadal in Beijing, and has been playing pretty well overall lately.
