Wimbledon has come to the business end, and alas, Johanna Konta could not reach the final (‘Come on Andy… I mean Jo!’).
Magdalena Rybarikova froze in the head lights.
And today it’s the turn of the men. Sam Querrey dodged a bullet with Djokovic’s retirement and faced my pre-tournament outright winner tip Marin Cilic.
Roger ‘the Dodger’ Federer was another outright winner tip and he plays Tomas Berdych. Roger is 7-0 in the last seven head-to-heads against old Thunder Thighs.
I hope you have enjoyed my Grand Slam coverage on Twitter @drtclub. I thought I did rather well!
I will be collating all of my examples and trading graphs into a tennis ebook. The next Grand Slam is at the end of August – the US Open – where the winner gets a super-sized Cola and McDonalds Happy Meal (extra large).
Did you notice that we made the vast majority of your trading profits at the beginning of the tournaments, rather than at the business end? At the beginning of a tournament there can be vast differences in rankings between players, and we also have the warm-up tournament form (momentum) to work with.
Tennis is going to become a staple diet here at delayreacttrade.com, and as the French Open and Wimbledon have showcased, it has worth as a trading vehicle.
I am afraid that I have kicked cricket to the curb, girlfriend. I quite simply have zero interest in it as a sport and am therefore unwilling to invest time waiting for a wicket to go, or a batter to score a significant amount of runs.
Tennis and football provides sufficient trades for us 12 months of the year.
I am trialling some dobbing software at the moment for you, dear DRT-er in order to see if I can provide you with some good horse racing trading between the pre-race and in-play horse racing markets.
More to follow on that.
Enjoy the semi-finals today and remember, the football season is but a heartbeat away. The big boys are out pre-season: Everton; Newcastle; Arsenal; Bayer Leverkusen; Roma and, erm, Burnley are all out today.
I’m looking forward to the new season. I hope you are too.
