Sports Trading Club Enjoy Multi-Million Dollar Win Predicting Serena Williams and Novac Djokovic Would Fail in the Australian Open

LONDON, January 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Novak Djokovic continued an upsetting trend at the Australian Open. The three-time defending champion joined Serena Williams as unexpected early departures from the season's first major with a quarterfinal loss Tuesday night to Stanislas Wawrinka.

It seemed all the so-called "experts" predicted Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams to triumph at the Australian Open…everyone that is except for the savvy analysts at the exclusive Sports Trading Club. (http://www.sportstradingclub.com)

On the 11th January in their Trading News to Members, the Sports Trading Club advised that they predicted both hot favourites would be beaten.

"Everyone, but everyone is predicting that Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic will win the Australian Open," STC wrote. "We don't think it is that certain, and we have traded against the favourites Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic."

STC also signalled that Djokovic would fall to Stanislas Wawrinka.

Djokovic came into the match with 28 consecutive wins since losing last year's U.S Open final to Rafael Nadal, and 25 in a row at Melbourne Park since 2010.

But the figure that really mattered was 14 - the number of consecutive matches in which Djokovic had beaten Wawrinka back to 2007, including two five-set wins the last time they met in Grand Slam matches last year at the Australian and U.S Opens.

But as STC successfully predicted, it would not be 15. Stan the Man  Wawrinka caused one of the biggest upsets of the Australian Open, knocking out four-time defending champion Novak Djokovic 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7

In predicting Serena Williams to fail STC said, "Expect more stumbles (for Serena) this year, and we think the first could be at the Aussie Open, which she hasn't won since 2010. We question her desire. She doesn't like the heat. We expect an upset."

These bold predictions reportedly earned STC Members over $14 million.

The success of the Sports Trading Club  tennis analysis follows the spectacular results from the "human computer" known as the Sports Trading Club golf savant who has betting exchanges running scared following an incredible performance in selecting 5 PGA winners late last year.

She selected Billy Horschel  despite him being a 36-1 outsider, and then followed that with Harris English at 66-1 to win the FedEx St. Jude Classic and  American Jason Dufner to win the US PGA Championship at the price of 42 - 1.  

Her success has stunned the sports betting world who fear the consequences of her accuracy  and the "inside edge" that the Sports Trading Club now has on betting markets worldwide.

The Sports Trading Club forecasts that it will earn some 680 million yuan ($110 million) this year.

The reasons for optimism includes spectacular success in Australia in 2013 where it enjoyed a 1,900 percent profit.

STC UK Communications Manager Patrick McMahon said the fundamental difference was that most on-line sports betting companies that make money do so by taking money from their clients. The Sports Trading Club takes a different approach and makes money for their clients.

The Sports Trading Club, (http://www.sportstradingclub.com) was predicted in December 2012 to be the rising star of 2013, and lived up to that confidence by becoming the top performer in any industry, with a eighteen-fold rise in return, meaning a $50,000 investment on the 1st January 2013 made a profit of over $900,000 one year later. A rise of over 1,900 per cent.

STC  says that their success can also be attributed to the enjoyment and  enthusiasm of its members and the experience of being a member of an exclusive club.

"They don't have to make the decision on what to trade, we do that but they are fully informed in advance of every trade we make, so they get the same level of excitement and enjoyment by watching the sporting event in real time," Mr McMahon said.

"The difference is they win and that is far more enjoyable than losing," he said.

The Sports Trading Club, which  operates as a private investors group in England, allowed the general public to become members  in Australia in 2013 and is now expanding throughout Asia.

Its success in 2013 has sent a clear message to investors that trading on sports and prediction markets is an emerging industry to rival traditional financial markets.

"Our move to Australia has proven to be astute. A person who invested $50,000 on January 1 of last  has seen that grow to $958,000," Patrick McMahon said.

"We  don't gamble, we trade, " he said.  "At   the Sports Trading Club we  make money out of other people's mistakes. When one side gambles, and the other trades, it is like owning the casino, you make money even whilst you sleep."

"This is an exciting emerging market and growing at an unprecedented rate, making it the fastest growing sector of e-commerce in the world today," he said.

Bank of America and Merrill Lynch predict that by 2015 the on-line sports market will be worth over $512 billion a year.
