Betfair's tipsters show super form
Only Marion Bartoli let him down by winning but irrespective of that, Gary’s tips showed a profit of £46.50 (before commission) if you had backed each selection for £10 level stakes.
You'd be seriously in the money if you'd followed the Australian Open tennis tips on betting.betfair over the last three days. Here's how much you could have won and how you can ensure you don't miss the upcoming recommendations.
It's not just the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters who are showing good early form at the Australian Open. Betting.betfair's especially assembled crack team of tennis tipping experts have made a heck of a start too; if this was a five-setter you could say they were currently a set and two breaks up in the second.
Gary Boswell gave us his usual five first round upsets (five tips where he fancied the outsider of the two across first round matches) and kept the Bank Managers of all those who followed him pretty happy with his recommendations of Barbora Zahlavova Strycova ([3.0]), Monica Niculescu ([2.4]), Kristina Barrois ([2.2]) and Sandra Zahlavova ([2.0]) all coming good. Only Marion Bartoli let him down by winning but irrespective of that, Gary's tips showed a profit of £46.50 (before commission) if you had backed each selection for £10 level stakes.
You can also check out his tips on the winner market by going here. Despite all of his recommendations winning their first round matches, none of his tips to be crowned champion it have shortened in price, so you haven't missed the boat on them.
Not quite as successful but also showing a steady profit on his own first round 'upsets' was men's tennis expert Sean Calvert. His recommendation of Lukasz Kubot to beat big-serving Sam Querrey was available at [4.5] and though Kubot looked like he was a little kaput in the fifth set, he managed to hold his composure to beat the American and reward those who showed faith in our Sean.
Lleyton Hewitt may be out of this year's event after a heart-breaking fifth set defeat to the mercurial David Nalbandian but in Bernard Tomic, the Aussie fans still have a local favourite to cheer on and his first round win over Jeremy Chardy certainly didn't catch Sean off-guard, after he predicted the 18-year old, available at [2.2] would defeat the experienced Frenchman. His other three selections didn't come in but largely due to Kubot's win, he still showed a £17.50 profit (before commission) if you'd also backed his five selections to level £10 stakes.
Keep an eye on the tennis page on betting.betfair every day where Sean will be giving you his top selection in the men and women's draw ahead of the day's action. Here are his tips for tomorrow's matches.
