    Posted this in the gambling thread but thought I’d post here as well

    Tried courtsiding today. It’s damn near impossible. First I get there and it’s 99% woman so I stuck out. Then one lady had it in for me. She followed me like a hawk. Orlando had a nice 2nd floor terrace so you could see all the matches. I’m sitting there watching and I see her take a picture of me. Then she had an ITF rep come to her and next thing you know that rep was behind me for like 5
    Minutes.

    finally get a chance and they take the lines down so fast on individual games. Points we’re updAted very fast as well. I think if you spent all day, you might be able to squeak 1 or 2 but with them watching me, I bounced

    Did they say anything to you or did you just leave?

    Never a word said. But I could see it wasn’t going to work. I’m trying to bet the Individual Game. So when it got to break point or game point, the online books would not have that option up for long. Information was only delayed about 5-7 seconds. If the books had left the bets open then it would be possible but nope

    I never understood why they care but they do. I’m not sure why. It’s not like I’m rigging the match or anything

    Id rather Wimbledon do something rather than nothing. But surely theres a more nuanced approach.

    I kept getting alerts for him and figured something was broken somewhere. That makes a lot more sense now.

    sabalenka needs some help. She's got no variety in her game. Crashes and burns way too often (not saying she did in this match, I didn't see it) Tons of talent and has the size you'd pick for a top player. Hoping she gets over the hump and grabs a few majors.

    In typical Bibi fashion, win the first, fuck around in the 2nd then dominate the 3rd

    Just saw something in an interview she picked up something Rafa does on clay and was going to implement it. She said it would be massively good or bad. Guessing she is done with that.

    She's not flashy, but I love watching Ons play. The way she uses droppers from any part of the court as a weapon is such a nice departure from the usual.

    And of course have to root for Pegula in the 2nd semi.
