I'll go :


5 AM on Davydenko                                      


5 AM on Stepanek


5 AM on Ferrer


Quite profitable hopefully, particularly if Stepanek and Ferrer oblige.


Looks as if it might be quite fun if Greul were to beat Roddick

Don't want to be a pain, but I just don't understand these figures.  Hadn't checked any before but I was aware that USF was making big gamble on Andy Roddick for potentially little gain  and was surprised he gained so much.


Assuming position after day 6 is correct I get lower day 7 position for both USF and myself.  Didn't check any other.  


USF first :


Had 128 AM after day 6.


Staked a total of 67 AM for day 7.


Gets back in respect of 3 winners :


Ljubicic :  staked 5 AM at 1/8 :  stake of 5 AM plus wins 0.62 AM  so gets back  5.62 AM


Roddick :  staked 50 AM at 1/8 :  stake of 50 AM plus wins  6.25 AM so  gets back total of 56.25 AM 


Nalbandian :  staked 5 AM at 2/5 :  stake of 5 AM plus wins  2 AM so gets back total of 7 AM


Loses stakes of 5 AM on Davydenko and 2 AM on O Rochus


So total staked = 67 AM.  Gets back total of 68.87.  i.e. wins net 1.87


So sholud now be  128 AM  +  1.87 AM  =  129.87  NOT  191 AM


Indiana :


Had 130 AM after day 6.


Staked a total of 15 AM for day 7.


Has one winner :


Ferrer :  staked 5 AM at 6/4 :  stake 5 AM  plus wins 7.50 AM so gets back total of 12.50 AM


Loses stakes of 5 AM on Davydenko and 5 AM on Ferrer


So total staked = 15 AM.  Gets back total of 12.50 AM  i.e.  loses net  2.50 AM


So should now be  130 AM  -  2.50 AM   =  127.50 AM,  NOT  133 AM 


To me, it looks like a misunderstanding of betting.  I can just about agree new figures if you add on the original stake in respect of the winning players.


i.e.  USF   add on  5AM + 50AM + 5 AM  =  60AM


129.87 AM  +  60AM  =  189.87  approx  =  your fig  of  191 AM ( it would have tied up if each win is rounded up to higher 1 AM, however problem is that the 60AM should not be added on )


Indiana  add on  5 AM


127..50 AM  +  5 AM   =  132.50 AM   approx =  to your fig  of  133 AM ( again would tie up if winning rounded up, however problem again is that the 5 AM should not be added in )


Problem best illustrated by 50 AM on Roddick at 1/8.


You stake  50 AM,  you win 5.62  ( i.e. 1/8 x 50 )   so get back 56.62 and gain a net 5.62


You don't gain 56.62.  Hell, or I would have had a bit of that !   Lose 50 AM if Roddick loses,  gain 56.62 if Roddick wins  -  I don't think so.


Sorry again to be a pain, and hope I've been clear. I just think that there's a misunderstading of how wins are calculated.
