Tennis Trading League

10th September 2013 – Day 16

As I mentioned in my post of 1st September, I mentioned that Patrick has offered some trades in the win market. As the US Open has now finished, here is what happened to them.

Andy Murray
Back Murray at 5.50 (achieved 5.60)
Lay if he reaches semi-final
Andy Murray lost to Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarter-finals.
TRADE LOST
Loss: £10.00

Angelique Kerber
Back Kerber at 80.00
Lay if she meets Serena Williams.
Angelique Kerber lost her fourth round match to Carla Suarez-Navarro
TRADE LOST
Loss: £10.00

Victoria Azarenka
Back Azarenka at 4.00
Lay if she meets Serena Williams.
Azarenka won her semi-final, but Serena William obliterated Li Na in the other, and her odds drifted. Laid at 4.40
TRADE LOST
Loss: £0.91

Onto the day’s trades..

Lucie Safarova vs Anna Tatishvili
Back Safarova at 1.41
Lay at 1.20
Stop Loss at 2.36
TRADE WON
Profit £1.66

Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova vs Eleni Daniilidou
Back Zahlavova-Strycova at 1.41
Lay at 1.20
Stop Loss at 2.36
TRADE WON
Profit £1.66

Mirjana Lucic-Baroni vs Sharon Fichman
Back Lucic-Baroni at 1.92
Lay at 1.60
Stop Loss at 3.20
TRADE WON
Profit £1.90

Camila Giorgi vs Lauren Davis
Back Giorgi at 1.55
Lay at 1.20
Stop Loss at 2.58
TRADE WON
Profit £2.77

Bethanie Mattek-Sands vs Stephanie Dubois
Back Mattek-Sands at 1.24 (Achieved 1.25)
Lay at 1.08
Stop Loss at 2.08
TRADE WON
Profit £1.50

Kristina Mladenovic vs Melanie Oudin
Back Mladenovic at 1.60 (Achieved 1.72)
Lay at 1.30
Stop Loss at 2.86
TRADE WON
Profit £3.07

An interesting trade this one. Patrick advised backing Mladenovic at 1.60. When I checked the odds, she had drifted to 1.72, which gave me a higher stop loss. She lost her serve in the first set to go 5-6, and her odds rose, but thankfully not close to the stop loss, and immediately broke back to take the set to a tie break. There we five dropped points during the tie-break, and on the back of the first (I think) loss on the Mladenovic serve, sent the odds skywards, but only up to 2.82. However, she broke Oudin’s serve on three occasions, and the odds crashed to 1.26 or so, giving a winning trade.

Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic
Back Nadal at 1.75
Lay at 1.50
Stop Loss at 2.92
TRADE WON
Profit £1.58

Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic
Lay Nadal IF he wins first set, odds should be in range of 1.3 to 1.4.

Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic
Lay Djokovic if he leads by two sets to one.

Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic

Patrick emailed me earlier today, to advise that some of the trades previously shown here have some errors, due to the fact that he advises his members to exit a trade with a stop loss of 40%.

Having seen no mention of this figure within the selection postings, I was unaware of this guideline.

Normally, I would go back and correct the trades where this oversight would have made a difference.

However, I am reasonably sure that there would have been trades that would have hit the stop loss, but gone on to be a winning trade, as well as those trades where a stop loss would have been hit, and gone on to be a full loss.

At this point, I will draw a line under this part of the review here, and restarting with the trades for Thursday. The win market trades are unaffected by what has happened here, so they will carry on in any case.
