Sean Calvert

Sean is a freelance sports journalist, who has spent time working for the broadsheets in London; in the Midlands as a football correspondent for the regional press and he provides commentary and analysis for several media outlets.


Although he has spent a sizable proportion of his career writing about football, his first love is tennis and Sean is now a regular contributor to various online publications and his own website www.thesportsjournalist.co.uk

He lists his favourite recent punting successes as Juan Martin Del Potro's 2009 US Open victory at 18-1; Radek Stepanek winning the Countrywide Classic in 2007 at 50-1; Venus Williams' Wimbledon victory of the same year, also at 50-1 when in trouble in the opening round; and Fernando Gonzalez's run to the Olympic final in 2008 at 125-1.

His favourite player to watch is Fernando Gonzalez and Sean's players to think twice about when considering a punt are Nikolay Davydenko and Gael Monfils for their frustrating inconsistency; Tommy Haas and Jose Acasuso for their tendency to quit mid-match through some sort of injury; Paul Henri-Mathieu and Tomas Berdych for their mental frailty and Richard Gasquet for a combination of all of them.
