Weekly and Overall Update from the Tennis Picks July 4th-10th

Sometimes it seems that if it wasn't for bad luck, I would have no luck at all... It was one of those days yesterday and I will not be making any more picks this week.

Richard Gasquet was the biggest culprit in my mind as he had a break advantage in all 5 sets played against Florian Mayer yesterday but blew the first 2 sets by losing 4 games in a row in both sets.

This meant that he ended up failing to cover the spread by 0.5 games, and was thus the subject of my rant for his disappointing attitude in the afternoon. In fact, he was fortunate that Mayer was clearly struggling with an injury, even if Gasquet failed to make that count for much of the latter stages of the match.

That bad luck seemed to run throughout the day as Phillip Kohlschreiber went down in straight sets to Gael Monfils when I expected the German to at least take a set. It did not improve my mood to notice Kohlschreiber actually had won more points than Monfils at the end of the 2nd set, but was still 2-0 down and clearly mentally deflated.

Potito Starace at least did me the good turn of winning his Davis Cup tie by covering the spread by 0.5 games before Mardy Fish lost out to Feliciano Lopez.

You cant make winning picks every week, and sometimes you have to know when to let go of a bad thing. There is plenty of time to recover in a tennis season, so I will be back for outright picks from Bastad and Stuttgart tomorrow.

WEEKLY UPDATE: - 6.09 Units (- 5.09 Units Daily Picks, - 1 Unit Outright Picks)
