Have you ever had a dream that you could be good at Tennis trading?
What a great week of tennis trading it has been on the Betfair Exchange! As the US Open reaches it's closing stages, we saw an overweight American woman serve and volley her way past the Wimbledon champion. Taylor Townsend got to the net more than 100 times during her 3 set battle with Halep, a tactic so rare in modern day women's tennis it left Halep clueless as to how to handle it.
You will hear a lot today about Thiem facing the toughest test in tennis, beating Nadal on clay at Roland Garros. Nadal has only lost twice in his 80+ matches at this tournament, once to Djokovic and once to Robin Soderling (remember him?). For me the most incredible statistic about Nadal's success is that this is his 11th final and he has won all 10 before this. To win every final of a Grand Slam 10 times in a row is an incredible effort.
As news broke today of a set-back in Andy Murray's recovery from his hip injury it got me thinking about life after he retires. It has been a tough year having no Murray matches to follow given how consitently he had made the latter stages of pretty much all tennis tournaments over the past decade. Murray's dogged style of never giving up but also taking his eye off the ball when ahead meant that for many of us Betfair Tennis traders he was a goldmine.

If you saw the picture for this post it has some vague relevance that I will get to later on. If not and you are attracted to women then it may be worth checking out on the blog homepage!
The battle for the first major of the year and the world number 1 ranking comes down to this. A potential classic is in store for us here and I will go through my trading notes with you so you can potentially have an edge on the market.
Betfair trading is a career in which we need the help of software, most pro-traders use lots of different software sources to apply their Betfair trading strategies and techniques, we are no different.
