Muller makes the StreakMaster look smart once again...well maybe for the first time.

7:14 PM ET: Instant Streak Classic
In one of the most back and forth matchups we have had in Streak history, Gilles Muller pulled off a great upset of 5th ranked Nikolay Davydenko. He also won our matchup 20-19 in a dramatic last second victory. The StreakMaster has a huge streak at . . .2.

12:31 PM ET: Patty Schnyder Takes Down NOExplode225
Our highest streak so far (11) has ended thanks to the 109 mph serve of Schnyder over the 107mph serve of Dementieva. The StreakMaster tallies the win and is making moves towards the top of the leaderboard, the monthly one that is. Only a few spots remain the in Beat The Streaker's fantasy football custom league. The draft will be held tomorrow so be sure to email me at TheStreakMaster@hotmail.com asap to get a spot.

Today's Preview
The U.S. Open is starting to get very interesting heading into the later rounds. Our first prop at 11:00 a.m introduces a new kind of matchup, who will record the fastest serve. Both, Patty Schnyder and Elena Dementieva have reached 109mph in this tournament, so it is a bit of a toss-up. Our Men's matchup features 5th ranked Nikolay Davydenko against Gilles Muller in a aces versus games won matchup. Davydenko is a heavy favorite to win the match but Muller has recorded a good number of aces throughout the tournament. In WNBA action, the two games on the board both have lines less than 3 points a piece so there should be some nail-biters. MLB lines for the day: Rays -130, Brewers -137, Royals -150, DBacks -127.

MLB PHI @ WAS: Which side will record a HIGHER total in the game?
Cole Hamels pitches in Nationals Park today in our matchup against the Nationals with his strikeouts versus Washington's walks + runs scored. Hamels has recorded over 3 strikeouts in his past 6 starts and does not give up many walks. The matchup may be won or lost by the Philadelphia relievers.

Yesterday's Notes: An average day for users, totalling out at 53.1% winning PCT. The biggest streak breaker were the UCLA Bruins who came back on their home field to steal a win away from Tennessee. Over 75% of entries in that matchup took the loss including the Streak Master. The top streak extender were the Cleveland Indians with 77% of entries picking correctly. Our leader seems to be taking it slow, making only one pick today. NoExplode225 sits alone with 11 wins in a row.
