Sitting out on Monday. Do have one bet for Tuesday and could be busy at Kelso on Wednesday but still very much September fare. Spent Saturday night watching the US Open women’s final in preparation for the French Open which starts next week.

It was a great win and she is a serious force for good in the world. Not just tennis. Funny and modest and strong. With a lethal forehand!

Interestingly, she is very incomplete as a tennis player so far. Quite one dimensional. But she hits it hard and what they call ‘through you'. Opponents haven't got to grip with that side of her yet. She needs some to test her and the absence of Barty,Andrescu,Halep etc at this tournament assisted what was a stuttering passage. She was quite lucky to get past Misaki Doi who had her on the ropes and Marta Kostyuk also scared her witless.

But yes, she has a vital inner calm that allows her to regroup when in trouble. She learned that since last May when we saw her at Edgbaston. She played dismally there. Threw the towel in a couple of times and lost badly at Wimbledon too. Putintseva beat her twice. There's a player not afraid to test her game and they were due to play in the semi final here before Brady knocked out the Russian. That might have been interesting.

So Osaka has work still to do on her game but you can't argue with three slams by the age of 22. And the comeback here was impressive. Azarenka had her really at 2-0 and 40-30 second set but Osaka had already shown she could play through Azarenka and gambled on the crunch break point and it paid off. She got belief from that I'd say. And Azarenka all along knew that if she didn't see her off early, she might regret it.

Ultimately, Osaka blew her off court with sheer power. Not been that many women players in the history of the game with that capability.

It is never enough on its own ultimately. Serena developed a wide range to her game as she went on. Dinara Safina never won a slam despite having the power. She lacked the other requisite components. Mentality being the biggest one. Osaka does have that in bucketloads. Smart woman.

Reminds me of Michelle Obama.

She does indeed bring hope in dark times.

The BOZmail golden rules:

1/ Try to look where others do not.

2/ Make sure your selections are as good as you can get them(the boz’s job here)

3/ Get your staking right (up when confident – down when less so or when managing bank)

4/ Do all in your power to get best price available(whether that be using price comparison sites or using partial staking techniques on the exchanges when unsure which way a price might go. Be careful not to take exchange ‘silly prices’ if you are going in early on a lay price or if a specified low lay tissue price goes on a significant drift. Always check bookmaker tissue prices first to get a guide on what to expect from the market if it is not yet properly formed on the exchanges. The recommendation is always to secure a price (if possible) when actually placing the lay bet. Your discretion based on personal form study and watching the markets develop also encouraged to ensure you maximise returns.The staking advices are a general rather than rigid dictate – mainly for the less experienced and those not able to spend time watching markets develop and practising the optimum betting time skill. Remember also that a lay price available at a significantly lower level than stated on the sheet offers opportunity to increase lay stake without increasing calculated safe lay liability. This can be a key profit optimising tool in the long term if your form study agrees with that published by The Boz.

5/ Always keep in mind the long term ‘importance of  breaking even’ philosophy and practice. This is very much used by The Boz in his staking advices and is recommended in your betting practices – especially during the down spells – in order to maintain a healthy and consistent bank.

6/ Always remember the BOZ does traditionally suffer from Murphys Law. If he expresses his opinion but states that he won’t be betting on it himself and isn’t making it an official tip, remember that historically these can be his best advices! The 2019 Grand National opinion expressed paid a £2,260-93 tricast for a £60 (£1×60) permed stake (five selections). 

7/ Never accept an overall loss. This has been the BOZ’s mantra for 22 years. The year the BOZmail posts an overall loss is the year he packs in.

“I play cautiously and strategically with bank management always in mind.”  Boz
