To be honest it wasn’t that arduous. As ever my trusty companion was by my side and only needed reﬁlling occasionally, my curiosity was piqued and I felt a self-satisﬁed glow as if I was actually working. I started with Test matches in England because that seemed most relevant to my current betting, and set parameters of 1990 to the present day. What I found was that of the 83 Test matches played, 26 had ﬁnished with stalemate – a percentage rate of 31%. 7 was good value.

It has exotic names but very few, standout characters. So what is my policy? Deep down I want to lay players like Gustavo Kuerten and Henman. The former has little track record on any surface other than clay and the latter has a downright terrible record at the US Open. The odds are however, somewhat prohibitive and I desperately want to try out this method of laying a player and backing him throughout.

From elation to despair in seconds as the game continued and Roddick saved a series of break and match points. The odds in the overall winners market on Roddick went up to 20 during this spell. He was a ﬂuffed shot or miss-hit away from defeat and I refused to put a little saver on him to cover all positions. At 20 a little back of £50 would have done. Only £50 for protection! What stopped me was my foolish back of Roddick beforehand using all my proﬁt and stake money. I hadn’t reckoned to keep some back in case of opportunity during the match and now there was one, a bloody all singing, all dancing, belter with knobs on.
