Easiest money in the world
Venus won in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, this morning.
The line yesterday was really undervalued, -380, when Venus is a three-time Wimbledon champion and has lots of wins on grass where the only things Ivanovic had going for her was that she recently beat Williams on a non-grass court and was a six-seed vs Venus' 23. Ivanovic doesn't have many titles and no Grand Slams.
I kept on scouring the news last night, making me late for dinner with Sham and Empire and Bruiser at ElMyr, just to make sure there weren't any mental or physical hijinks related to Venus that the handicappers already had in mind.
It was obvious though that Venus had momentum in this tourney. The line should have been higher, almost like the -4000 line for Justine Henin vs. Marion Bartoli.
