Firedave trading Betfair with Bet Angel

Documenting my experiences with Bet Angel using BetFair. This will be used to record my progress as I take trading on full time.

Bet Angel - The most effective tool for Betfair

He looked great! Poor Andy Murray, the weight of Britain's 74 long years on his shoulders and he didn't put up a bad fight. I was somewhat surprised that all the commentators in the BBC London office were backing Andy. The most clinical tennis I've seen from Federer this tournament. From a price perspective things got interesting in the 3rd set - the only time it looked likely that Murray could've got a set (and probably should've apart from Federer's fantastic point saving!)

In my opinion, a slightly higher first serve percentage was probably the only difference here. Andy was defending like a champion but just held back slightly. Making Federer play the extra one or two first serves would've made him on the back foot. I reckon he'll get his grand slam, maybe even this year - just not the Australian!

Trading starts for me tomorrow on the horse racing. I didn't trade any of the Australian Open as I don't know how the price moves that well in tennis. I did record a lot of the matches prices and volumes for analysis and will be taking a keen interest at Roland Garros in May. It looks like it might be a bit easier to take scalps out of the tennis markets.
