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.

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.
