The Challenge of the Newcomer

There was a big buzz about a new tennis player a couple of weeks ago. This player was just a teenager, but she was making her way through a major tournament. Some of my friends were making Taruhan 188 bets that she would win the entire tournament, but I made a bet on my favorite player. I figured that the newcomer would make it pretty far, but then fall short before making it before the end, while my favorite would continue on through the tournament to win it all like she had done in tournaments before.

My friends thought I was crazy for making a bet against the newcomer on the rise, but I knew from seeing many tennis tournaments in the past that sometimes people can play well one minute and lose the next. I also knew that sometimes players who are experiencing the big tournaments for the first time can freeze, especially when facing off against some of the professionals that they’ve seen play on television for years. I know that if I were in their position, I probably wouldn’t be playing at my best because I would be too in awe of the moment and from meeting my favorite players.

The newcomer advanced far enough to have a match with my favorite player. It was an intense match, and there were some moments where I thought the newcomer would be able to defeat my favorite player, but in the end, she was defeated. I breathed a sigh of relief when my favorite player won, but I also commended the newcomer for being able to make it so far. Just as I predicted, my favorite won the tournament yet again, and I won some money from the bet that I made on her, while my friends lost money.
