The odds didn’t have far to move for me to be able to get out for no loss or indeed, a profit. Was this wise? Probably, on the whole, but only if you are prepared to accept a bigger loss. Well I wasn’t that but I did it anyway. A couple of good games by Ferrero, maybe break Roddick’s serve or at least take the first to a tie-break and I should be able to get a better price. 7 and I hit it – too slowly, alas because it had gone but my plan was working. All I needed to do was beat the other buggers on the button – gambling meets quiz show.

Schalken lost in the quarters and I garnered another hundred and Nalbandian won through to the semis. This I had to be up and ready for. No excuses, it could win or lose the bet. The Argentine was a nuggety performer and had played under Grand Slam pressure when an unknown at Wimbledon in 2002. He might, just might earn me a chance to trade extra profit and reduce my exposure. Who knows? He might even win the game. Roddick vs Nalbandian was an unmitigated disaster. In short I gambled rather than traded and lost.

So you can see why at 21 for 4, I was confident that we would not be witnessing anything similar. Also both Atherton and Greatbatch had performed their heroics on fast and true pitches. Headingley has never been anything like that and I cannot reiterate enough how batsmen loathe variable bounce. The Test did have some good batting – Gary Kirsten’s was an exceptional innings considering he was in during the first over and it proved a vital and ultimately match-winning century, but never was I concerned about my bet.
