Do you think it's about me coming back from the dead ?
Well...not really LOL Will explain it later in this post....

It was long time since my last post on this blog. I never said bye forever to my followers, leaving me possibility to come back and post when I feel for it and this time just happens to be today. So, here I am.....

No posting doesn't mean I am out of business. My life changed a lot during last year. As you may know from one of my posts last year I was in China for exactly 1 year ago, missed trading on Australian Open 2012. When back to Sweden I changed my life, since Feb 2012 I am my own boss and it has nothing to do with trading. I am really happy and am doing what I love to do.
Trading is still something I really enjoy and this year started as so many years before with trading NFL and tennis. NFL was my chance to build up my Betfair bank before Australian Open.

Now you may ask, what made me to post today ? It must be last night's crazy tennis session with Del Potro lost to Chardy and finally Simon-Monfils match this morning.

I made some wrong decisions while trading Del Potro and was mad at myself. Chardy won 1st and 2nd set, my only chance was hoping for Del Potro come back. After a lot of scalping and with some luck I could finally hedge for an OK profit. Was happy with my total P&L after trading all night. I was tired and thought about going to bed but still a few matches to play with Simon-Monfils I didn't wanted to miss.

What a match it was !!! One of the most crazy tennis matches I traded in my life. Some very long rallies, I remember one of them was 71 shots...can you imagine ? Simon 2 sets up and something happened.....after the match Gilles Simon said,

"I was almost dying after the end of the second set" - now see the title of my post, you understand ? :)

Both players called for trainee, taking medical timeouts, treatment all the time between points etc..
At the end of the match trainee was almost as busy as both players lol

I was about 175 GBP green on both players after second set. Now with Simon struggling, serving at half pace odds starts moving like crazy against Simon. What to do now ? I was already all green and quite may call it greed but I found it was a great value and followed the money on the market, going against Simon. 5 min later I changed my all green from 175 to 1350...LOL

Monfils won 2 following sets and we got a 5th set...Somebody said, wait unexpected with Monfils on court and what happened was really unexpected from both players in the final set. Finally Simon won the match after almost 5 hours on court. Now Andy Murray must be happy to know he is going to play against a totally exhausted player.

Final screenshot from this crazy match ...

My final profit on the market changed after a few trades. I increased my Australian wallet funds with about 150% last night....!!! I was so excited and it is definitely a night to remember and deserved  a new post on my blog even if there are no more readers of my blog :)

There is something strange, on my screenshot of the Toy you see I am 1529.22 on both, why P&L is showing "only"  1529.20 ??? Where is 0.02 ? I have no idea how Betfair make it, well I dont really care about missing 0.02 but could anyone explain it to me ? :)

Finally, I really want you to have a look on the last image showing scoring for this match....It is really something to remember while trading tennis. Anything can happen it's what I always keep saying to myself during tennis match.

Wish you good luck and take care all my friends.......Until next post :)
