Great start to the 2011 AO

In my last post I talked about the trading opportunities I like to look out the most in the Grand Slam.

In the first 3 days of the 2011 Australian Open we have had all the mentioned opportunities present themselves.


On the first day there where four, two sets down comebacks, three of which were full comebacks in which the player that did comeback also went on to win the match. On day 2 we had three comebacks, two of which were full comebacks, and on day 3 we had two comebacks one of which was a full one. So, nine comebacks in total so far. The number is higher than usual and what makes things even better is the fact that most of these matches, where matches on the show courts, which means more exposure for the match and better liquidity for us traders.


No so many opportunities for trading a match on fatigue as these matches usually are on the end on the first week of a Grand Slam. But there were two so far, one was the Nalbandian vs Hewitt match and one less evident was the Robredo vs Fish match.


Only one match had an injury, and that was the Venus Williams vs Sandra Zahlavova where Venus picked up an injury during the last point of the first set tie break. Again this match presented some great trading opportunities.
