According to a tweet from Australian bookmaker Tab, a bettor stands to collect $135,526 AUS ($126K USD) from a $40 AUS ($37 USD) bet if Kei Nishikori wins the US Open final today.

The gambler placed the bet weeks ago as part of a 6-way parlay. So far five of the bets from Winston-Salem and New Haven have come through with the kicker, an 80-1 wager on Nishikori to win the US Open, still in play!

I made $1000 when Cilic destroyed Federer few days ago.

Gambling is only for responsible mind and at the same time you have to be bold.

this is one of the reasons why I love tennis, it’s always good bet few bucks for the underdogs.
Although I “hurt” bet against Rafa Nadal, as I did in Rome Djokovic who turned the match.
You know just bet some money on them, not go into debt or borrow, not obsessions, gambling is a good way to earn extra money.
You must be a sort of Borg and MacEnroe, this is translated into a player of today, Rafael Nadal.

My favorite betting matches:
Federer Djokovic Dubai
Djokovic Nadal Rome
Nadal Djokovic Paris
Nishikori Federer Miami
Ivanovic Williams Melbourne
Cilic Federer NY

And Rafa winnning his 9 Rg after his defeat against Djokovic in Rome, was sublime not only for him, for me too!


Gordon Says:

Gambling is most certainly NOT a good way to earn extra money. Steve – you didn’t list the times you lost and those outnumber the times you’ve won.

Look at the subject of this post – he got a moment of glory, but in the end he is out $40.


SG1 Says:

As with the Federer match, Cilic didn’t let Kei play his game. Hats off to Cilic for a phenomenal tournament. He certainly looks like a future slam contender based on this USO.

Then again, so did Krajicek back in ’96 and Roddick in ’03. Let’s see how Marin follows up this win. He has a very powerful game and he moves really well (regardless of his height). I suspect he’ll show up in some other slam finals in the next few years.


Steve 27 Says:

It is Gordon, you just have to wait your oportunity, you have be very pacient.
Of course I lost some money, but if you are cold enough in your decisions you can earn extra money per month. Be care, as a hobby, not a profession that requires having various personal characteristics that few have really in this thing called gambling. It is not recommended for everyone, on that we agree.
