As expected, a surge of money on Zverev

Thiem was terrible value at 1.27
NIce to see you posting on here, LeTiss.
Thank You

I've had a couple of years where my passion and energy for trading subsided.
I have been taking stock of my life, plus my mum has been ill too
When motivation levels are low, trading becomes very hard work

But, I'm back in business again.
I turned 50 in June, and now accept that I have no career prospects, or job opportunities anymore - I have been doing this full-time for 12 years, it's my life. I won't have the freedom, or the income anywhere else that I do from here

So, love me or hate me.........you'll see my name appearing on the forum more often again!!!

Good to hear you've got the fire back in your belly and wish you all the best for the future - both from a trading and personal perspective.

Something you posted years ago on here as stuck with me - "You'll learn more from a red screen than you will a green screen"

Excellent advice and timeless as well!

Need JG to come back as well, for my forum lurking nostalgia to be complete.

Always worth reading when you do post. (I keep thinking of Matt Le Tissier when you do)

Never really thought about it but that applies to me, only I would drop the word anymore from that sentence. :)

Does anyone know what the final matched figure was last night?

It was £16m when I last looked

I'm interested to see if volumes are down compared to other years.......and whether viewing figures make a major difference. I'm sure Amazon Prime subscribers are lower compared to Sky when they had US Open

Finished with £23'263'902
£12.8m on Zverev
£10.4m on Thiem

I hate the fact Amazon have the TV rights, there 30-40sec delay makes them pointless for trading, only use is general watching and/or seeing early signs of shifts in momentum

Yes, I agree. That's why I am intrigued how it impacts upon the volumes

£23m is pretty good though. There are clearly more Prime Video subscribers than I imagined

I've got the volumes from previous finals i'll have a check later, but need to look at the whole tournaments really, as single matches are going to be largely dependant on number of games and sets played
