2013 Open Golf Championship - Do stats point to an English success?
by drobgod on 18 Jun at 13:58
When Graeme McDowell won the 2010 US Open it seemed to open the floodgates for Northern Irish golfers to follow in his wake and within just over two years they'd mopped up another three, courtesy of Rory McIlroy (twice) and Darren Clarke. When Rory McIlroy won the 2011 US Open he mentioned how seeing Graeme McDowell win his major had inspired him because he knew without any disrespect to Graeme, that if he could do it then so could I. This then helped Darren Clarke to lift the claret jug in 2011 as he knew both Graeme and Rory had looked up to him over the years and they had managed to cross the finish line in front, so why not him? When Justin Rose completed his fine victory at Merion on Sunday evening and I witnessed the delight..

2013 Wimbledon Men's Singles - Big four head to head

NOVAK DJOKOVIC I was quite surprised to see that Novak Djokovic has a losing record against all of his three main rivals on grass. He did win his most recent encounter with Rafael Nadal, but is 2-1 down overall and has lost the only time he's met Murray and Federer on grass. So with a combined record of one win and four losses against his nearest rivals does Djokovic really represent any value at odds of less than 2/1. Djokovic 1 v Nadal 2 - Most recent Djokovic 3-1 Wimbledon 2011 Djokovic 0 v Murray 1 - Most recent Murray 2-0 Olympics 2012 Djokovic 0 v Federer 1 - Most recent Federer 3-1 Wimbledon 2012 RAFAEL NADAL Rafael Nadal has a mixed record against his main rivals on grass, leading Djokovic two-one, but being the same score down against Roger Federer. His record against..

by Chipmonkadidooda on 19 Jun at 03:58
YOUR ULTIMATE GUIDE TO WIMBLEDON 2013 - MENS With the qualifiers already underway this week at SW19 here is your ultimate preview of the 127th Wimbledon Championship. I’ve taken a good few weeks out to assess all the top contenders to the crown on both sides of the draw from both the ATP and WTA with a complete statistical breakdown, highlighting what to look out for and where there may be some interesting angles to look for as you bet your way through the coming fortnight – whatever the weather! The draw is yet to be finalised as I write this and we’re expecting the LTA to stick to its unique tradition of selecting the seedings based upon world rankings and the last 24 months’ worth of grass court performance. That gives us the likely scenario of arguably the most ‘in-form’..

Manassero back to his best after tough US Open After the excitement of the US Open the European Tour heads to Germany...the BMW International Open celebrates its 25th year as a tour event. The Course & Winners After a year at Gut Larchenhof the event returns to its spiritual home of Golfclub Munchen Eichenreid which has hosted every year except last year and from 94-96.
