    what are people's opinions on Stephen Murray?
    He's got things going for him, just needs adecent coach and we'll see if he's up to scratch. As for weaknesses, his game will improve as he matures, but he noticeably needs to improve on his forehand and his match fitness. He's got some nice strokes, he's got the dogmatic attitude and approach, and he doesn't seem too fazed by others around him. He's not going to shine in Wimbledon, that's painfully obvious. Murray's game is adpated to clay, not grass, and it's on clay that he's had most training and practise in. Whether he's as successful or not, he won't emulate Henman as they are two very different players.

    I dont like Nadal, hate the way he celebrates his points. He just annoys me. I think he'll get far but won't win it. His type of game isn't suited to grass. I cant see any Spaniards winning it-- they barely enter Wimbledon do they?
    Federer is clear favourite. He just has too much variation in his play and is at home on grass. Plus the beating he got from Nadal should give him that extra bit of determination. Roddick's up there as well. Safin's a maybe, he's not got the best temperament. Henman's best chance was last year, he's struggling this year.

    I'd like a non-baseliner to win it!

    the reason i left Man U out is cuz they really could finish anywhere next season, depends on how glazer gets along and how comfortable the players are with his presence

    Please tell me if I'm being stupid but calling some events that you can bet
    on seems rediculously simple. - E.g. It was blatently obvious Blair would win the most recent general election, so if you put say a couple of grand behind him like the day before the election you could have made a good amount of money overhight. - Not a huge amount, I forget exactly but you'r money would have been safe. - Over time you could make loads.

    Another example is betting that the Bank of England would keep base rates the same at 4.75%. - All the economists predicted that this would happen.

    Is political/financial betting a rediclously simple way to make good money or am I missing something?

    Willhill.com lets you bet with stakes as low as 1p, I'm thinking of just staking £10 - split over loads of different but easy bets - to "spread the risk" making some money, and continuing to bet only winnings from that. Good idea?

    I think it is one of the biggest upsets ever in one day cricket. Australia are the best and have been by a considerable margin for years, Bangladesh have been the whipping boys since they were given international status.

    Bangladesh's stunning defeat of Australia will probably go down as the biggest one-day upset of all time, a rare upset achieved when the minnow batted second. Here we pick the top 5, i dont dispute this :

    1 Bangladesh beat Australia by 5 wickets, NatWest Series, Cardiff, June 18, 2005

    2 Kenya beat West Indies by 73 runs, World Cup, Pune, February 29, 1996


    3 India beat West Indies by 43 runs, World Cup final, Lord's, June 25, 1983
    4 Zimbabwe beat Australia by 13 runs, World Cup, Trent Bridge, June 9, 1983
    5. Bangladesh beat Pakistan by 62 runs, World Cup, Northampton, May 31, 1999
