No one could preview Nadal was going to loose against the worlds number 12, but a tenis game is never easy. We are talking about a minimum of three hours runnig from side to side. In some game, a tenis player can loose up to four quilograms!
But this bet is like betting on the last year biggest poker champion to win a tournament this year: you cant say if it happens, you just have the best statistics on your side...

I guess Hansen was not the only one who had bet on Nadal. But 1.4 million is a nice sum. Those highrollers simply have to much money at their hands.

i got to know a person who inherited DM 40million (around €20 million) and lost EVERYTHING in casinos in less than 5years due to being addicted to gambling.
now a days he lives from social welfare in 40qm appartment.

Is he stupid betting so much money on tennis players?
He was really very unlucky to lose money on rafael nadal and bookmaker very lucky to win.
Who would have expected Nadal to lose in quarter when he had never lost a match in french open.

The bet is Nadal do win the Roland Garos.

1.40/1.45 was the odds...

Nadal can be the king of RG, but at these odds there is no value... 1.4M :s

What did he get if he had chosen federer! Think better than rafaels odds on rg

------------
maybe he can bet 20 million 2day on federer winning wimbledon! think he will make 1.4 profit than?

Well i guess he can afford it, but i would never bet huge amounts on tennis (even if i would be as rich as him)! Nadal is a superb player but tiny things can change a tennisplayers play!
Tennis is alot like poker, you need to be a good player and be mentally strong to be succesfull at the highest level!

I like very much to bet in several sports like soccer, nba, nhl, tenis... But1.4M$ is a lot of money to put in one bet even if you have a lot more to bet.
