5 Comments for 2010 US Open Odds: Federer, Clijsters the Betting Favorites

funches Says:

If I were in Vegas, I’d take a flier on Nalbandian.

Kimberly Says:

If I were going after value I’d probably look at Roddick and Venus.

Romi Says:

Wow, surprised to see Nalbandian so high. He’s been resurgent, but win in a best-of-five? Hard to imagine, even for me who really enjoyed watching him in Washington, DC. Also, surprised on the women’s side to see Ivanovic and Jankovic at even odds. I know Wozniacki was a finalist last year and ranked #1, but there is no aggression in her game, just moonballing. A slam by her would be tough to swallow — as sweet as she is.

contador Says:

nalbandian didn’t recover as well as i hoped he would from toronto to cincy after the DC win.

i would want to pick him but can’t see it happening in the 5 setters.
