A possibly decent bet on the tennis tonight.

    Gael Monfils is 5.1 presently on betfair and 7/2 generally to beat David Ferrer.

    Monfils leads the head to head by 3-0 and has been the underdog on every occasion, but to be fair Ferrer is in much better form these days and Monfils is recently back from injury.

    Now dont get me wrong when your getting this kind of price on a tennis match its by no means a certainty. I think he can win though in a tough encounter.

    My main bet however is bit more conservative, I will be taking Monfils on the handicap.

    He is available at 2.12 with a 4.5 game start and this I reckon is good value so I will risk 5pts

    Also I will be betting small on a Monfils straight victory. 1 pt.

    Good luck if you play and dont shoot me if he loses but I just think there is a bit of value here...

    Well that didn't exactly work out like I hoped, I watched the match and it was clear Monfils was carrying a pretty serious hamstring problem , I can never understand why players bother to show up knowing they are injured , in hindsight that must have been why the price was so high.
