Betting Lesson Learned As Nick Kyrgios Loses To Milos Raonic

My Betting Lesson For The Week

Yesterday I wrote a post praising Nick Kyrgios for kicking Nadal’s arse! I was so impressed with the way he handled himself and the fact that he won the match so convincingly that I made his next match against Canadian Milos Raonic my Bet Of The Week. I have to admit the fact that he was an Australian also had something to do with it.

In actual fact I reckon you can say there are few betting lessons that I’ve learned from that losing bet. The first betting lesson is not to let emotions cloud your judgement. After writing that post I was so caught up in it all that I placed my bet before completing that post. Yep, it’s that easy to place a bet using the Sportsbetting app.

Final Scores  6-7 6-2 6-4 7-6

The next betting lesson is to do your research before placing a sports bet. I have to admit I know sweet FA about tennis. Sure I’ve heard of Nadal, but before yesterday I never even heard of Nick Kyrgios. I’ve also never heard of Milos Raonic. If I did a little research I would of found out that Milos Raonic was known for his killer serve as well. At 23 he’s also a lot younger than Rafael Nadal. One would think this would give him a little more stamina and a few years more experience than his younger opponent.

Even though he lost Nick played extremely well. So much so that he’s probably cemented his place amongst the pros. Reckon he won’t have to rely on getting a wild card so he can play with the big boys anymore.

So, that’s one of the many reason you should read this blog. Let me lay them out for you.

Nick Kyrgios Beats Nadal Now My Bet Of The Week

Nick Kyrgios played Rafael Nadal in the early hours of an Aussie morning. Many Aussies are weary eyed this morning because they stayed up to watch this remarkable match at Wimbledon. Few would have thought it possible. Even Nick Kyrgios’s own mother did not believe that her son could win against Nadal. Apparently this was enough to fire up the young Aussie even more.

Those who did stay up to watch the match are thanking their lucky stars because they watched one of the best upsets in Wimbledon history. Yep, Nick Kyrgios beat Rafael Nadal in four sets. 7-6 (5) 5-7 7-6 (5) 6-3. Pretty damn good for the up and coming future Aussie tennis star. Especially since he’s only 19 and ranked 144th in the world. For Nick Kyrgios to beat the 14 times grand slam champion is indeed a great feat for the young Aussie.

Nick Kyrgios

I saw some highlights of the game and Nick Kyrgios’ shot between the legs was unbelievable. No wonder so many people are calling it the Shot Of The Year. It just seemed to come so natural to him.

Nick Kyrgios’ between-the-legs winner ‘the shot of the year’

Nick Kyrgios’ strong point is obviously his power serve, enabling him to win 37 aces against Nadal. It was unbelievable! He won the first serve with an ace and won the winning serve with an ace.

Nadal had this to say of Nick Kyrgios, the young Aussie who beat him. Excerpts from the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I fought until the very end.”

“I am not even angry today because I lost the match despite losing my serve only one time. When you have an opponent who serves and hits every ball very strong, you are in trouble.

“I was not able to read his serve during the whole match. Congratulations to him. For me, I am going to go to the beach in Mallorca.”

Reckon Rod Laver is eating his words now after saying that Nick Kyrgios could not win against Nadal.

So, what happens next? Nick Kyrgios’ win means he now goes into a quarter-final match against Canada’s Milos Raonic. Sportingbet’s tennis market has Nick Kyrgios at @2.60 to win. I don’t know about you but that sound like pretty good odds to me. So much so that I think I’ll make Nick Kyrgios my Bet Of The Week. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi!!!

If you want to put some money on Nick, I suggest Sportingbet, that’s what I did.
