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.

Prematch Football Trading

One of the most popular forms of Betfair sports trading is prematch trading. By that we mean a trade which take place before the match begins, a trade that is entered and closed before kick off.

Why is this so popular?

It is perceived to be a 'safe' trade due to the fact that no risk is taken in play, a goal cannot come before kick-off so wild odds movements are unlikely. Therefore, people can trade with more money knowing that not much of the actual stake is really at risk if hedged out prematch.
