Patrik Antonius and Brandon Adams got to play their long-awaited tennis match at the Las Vegas International Tennis Center 3 days ago. Antonius was the big favorite to win the match (best of three set) and laid $295,000 to $30,000 on the encounter. In other words, if Adams would win he would take home more than the semi finalists at the next month's All England Championship.

Antonius was generous with the odds for a reason. 10 years ago, he was one of Finland's most promising tennis players and he's still playing regularly today. On the other hand, Adams is not new to tennis:

"I played tennis from I was 11 - 14. Then I stopped for a few years before starting again in college. Ever since then I have played once a week. Lately I have practiced a lot more though," said Brandon Adams in an interview before the game.

Antonius crushed Adams
Everyone hoped for a thrilling and even match of tennis between the 2 well-known poker players, but unfortunately it didn't end up that way. Antonius crushed his opponent in 2 straight sets (6-0 and 6-1) and laid hands on $30,000. Below you can find a few video clips from the match:

Didnt knew Patrick Antonius had some kind of tennis skills, and looks like he is really good... If he was portuguese i would know, but finnish...? Can someone from Finland tell us some of Antonius's tennis history? I guess he must have decided to choose poker rather than tennis because of the "aces"! Big Smile

watching patrick serve it looks like adam made a lame bet challenging him but odds were great for him and 30k is like pocket change for them.
and that second video is pointless imo

Tennis is such a nice sport when you become good at it! I try to play 2 times a week atleast to improve my skills... I love how strategic this game is!

Antonius used to be pro I think so he has really good technique and a nice serve.
