The Betfair Tennis Trader

Cleaning up without getting out of my boxer shorts.

A day in the life of a tennis trader

A couple of guys asked me to write about my life lol. Not sure that is a good idea. It doesn’t matter what my life is like. The question is what would yours be like if you could earn the money you needed in a few hours a day? Nor does it matter how much I make. What can you make?

But every since I was a kid I understood compound interest. And simply by taking 5% per match anyone can build a workable bank and achieve a great lifestyle. I often set my trades up to net 10%. That allows a good margin for error for trade outs and unexpected events. My key skills really are keeping my losses down to almost zero and the patience and discipline to be satisfied with small regular stress free returns. Being able to plan and implement exit routes from bad trades is absolutely mission critical. Once I stopped losing money i started earning money !

But the only way to find out what it is like is to have a go. Good luck.

    • “I could not have said it better myself?” oh guy cmon…
      I was for the article but my ideas was not to hear how much money someone earn with trading (this shit doesnt interest me ;)) i was think about things for example how much days/ hours a succsseful trader works or how his day looks like… get up turn on the computer and sitting all day looking at the screen? his attitude towards online gambling… do you comprendre?

      good luck

  6. Very interesting reading your blog. I have been trading tennis now for 18 months and have done ok….but not really broken through. I try and use my tennis knowledge of players and gleen what i can from the internet but struggle to find good solid advice on players etc etc….do you use a service or do you concentrae on players that you know?
