The Surprise Was Fed At 10-1!

Roger Federer set tennis history at the French Open by winning his 14th major singles title to tie Pete Sampras for the all-time record. The sad thing for anyone like us that didn’t have Roger to win was that you could have had 10-1 odds at the Hilton on arguably the best player in tennis history. On the women’s side, eventual champ Svetlana Kuznetsova was 7-1 at the start. Next stop: Wimbledon in 2 weeks. – capsules by Mark Mayer.

Lucky’s Twin Q Pot Rises To $11,413

The Belmont Stakes wound up as sweet vindication for Kent Desormeaux and another carryover to Lucky’s Twin Quinella contest. Kent erased the Big Brown debacle with a win on Summer Bird, which along with Dunkirk’s second place finish, eliminated all the tickets from an $8,630 pot. Dan Shapiro, Lucky’s director of marketing, said the Twin Q would be carried over to this Saturday with the pot now $11,413. So go to the Plaza and Terrible’s to win!
