Nostradamus of Bali Predicts winner and score of French Open with uncanny accuracy.

I was once called the “Nostradamus of Bali” by an overzealous fellow Bali newsletter writer. 

The reason he made this tongue-in-cheek remark was that for many years I had been making predictions on the world economy and investments especially for Bali and Bali real estate.

Just over an hour ago I sat down with my family and made a prediction that the winner of last night’s French Open Grand Slam championship would be Rafael Nadal.

I predicted he would kill his opponent in three sets 6-4, 6-3, 6-1.

I just checked on the news and found that I was almost perfect on my score predictions with Nadal winning 6-4, 6-3, 6-2. So, I was only off one game in the final set. 

I didn’t watch any of last night’s final because I was just too tired. 

So this was quite a remarkable prediction. Or just luck?

Was this a Nostradamus moment? No, because Nostradamus based his predictions of the future on reading of the stars and several other methods.

I predicted that Nadal would win last night based on being an avid fan of tennis and knowing that he is the King of Clay. He was facing an opponent far less qualified than him. 

The uncanny accuracy on the score may have been a soothsayer moment or it may have been just a good guess.

No, I won’t predict who’s going to win the World Cup or the next horserace for you, but I thought this was of interest.

What I will do is make predictions on Bali Real Estate at my seminars coming up in Sydney and Auckland this month and next month.

See more information here.

By the way my predictions on Bali real estate have virtually been 100% accurate for the last 22 years.
Denpasar, June 05, 2018.

According to PT. Bali Affordable Lifestyles International. (PT. B.A.L.I.) who have managed award winning PT. Bali Luxury Villas for the past 13 years, an ever-increasing number of Baby Boomers are retiring in Bali each year. 

Fact is that 25% of the world’s population, born between 1946 and 1964 labelled as the baby boom generation are now retiring. 

A large portion of those boomers currently living near Bali will want to retire here adding a whole new demand for Bali real estate for the next five to ten years.

According to a recent poll "50 % of Australians are now buying outside of Australia". Bali will certainly be on their short list.

"50 % of Australians buying outside Australia" 

PT. B.A.L.I. reveals that of the 55 Luxury villas that they manage less than 5% were occupied by Baby Boomers 13 years ago. Now over 25% are full-time retirees.


For example, in Australia it is estimated that 25% of its 25 million population are baby boomers. 

Add another estimated 1% of the 1,250,000 New Zealand Baby Boomers and Bali may have a huge increase in real estate demand from these two countries alone.

If Bali only receives 1%, of those Boomers that is 6,250 Australian and 1,250 New Zealand baby boomers seeking to buy or lease a Bali home for the next five to twenty years. 

Add to that new demands from the 1 % of boomers from Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Jakarta who want to retire in Bali that is another 7.5 Million buyers. 

You don't have a P.H.D. in Economics to conclude that these new demands on Bali's limited real estate supply will drive demand and prices through the roof the next five to ten years.

The reasons for Australian’s retiring in Bali are numerous. As one long time Australian resident of PT Bali Luxury Villas in Sanur stated, “it just doesn’t get any better than Bali”. 

Cost Of Living 62 % Less:

The cost of living which is estimated to be over 60 % less than Australia is one of the biggest draws.

Rafa Nadal beats Dominic Thiem in three sets to claim 11th French Open
11 June 2018 — 2:06am

Paris: Rafael Nadal was at his awe-inspiring best as he crushed Austrian Dominic Thiem to snatch a record-extending 11th French Open title with a 6-4 6-3 6-2 victory on Sunday.

The Spanish world number one took his Roland Garros win-loss record to 86-2 as he captured his 17th Grand Slam title by demolishing the seventh seed, who was hoping to become the second Austrian to win at Roland Garros.

Rafael Nadal has defeated Dominic Thiem in straight sets to claim his 11th title at Roland Garros.

In 11 finals in Paris, Nadal has only lost six sets as he matched the all-time record of most singles titles won at the same Grand Slam event set by Margaret Court at the Australian Open during the 1960s and 70s.

Sunday's result marks the sixth consecutive Grand Slam won by eith

er Nadal or 20-times major champion Roger Federer.

The Spaniard had won all 10 of his previous Roland Garros finals and although Thiem was the only man to have beaten him on clay over the past two seasons, the Austrian never threatened the claycourt master on Sunday.

Nadal called on the trainer to get his forearms massaged twice in the final set but even that problem failed to improve Thiem's chances of emulating fellow Austrian Thomas Muster's 1995 triumph.

Nadal got off to a dream start, pocketing the first six points of the match as he broke Thiem in the second game to open up a 2-0 lead.

Thiem broke back immediately as he continued to go for his shots, and he saw off a break point to hold for 2-2.

Nadal, however, turned the screw in the 10th game and Thiem seemed to grow nervous, sending a forehand long to hand his opponent the opening set.

The signs were already ominous for Thiem at that stage because in 112 best-of-five-set matches, Nadal had never lost after taking the first set.

The top seed went 2-0 ahead in the second set as he wore Thiem down in lung-burning rallies, leaving the Austrian screaming in frustration.

Thiem found some life and threatened with a break point in the seventh game, but Nadal broke his pace with a drop shot and finished it off with a passing shot, holding for 5-2.

He bagged the second set when Thiem sent a backhand long.

Thiem was still on the back foot in the third set, being forced to save four break points in the first game. He dropped serve in the third and Nadal held for 3-1 after taking a time out because of a sore hand.

He then had his forearm massaged at the changeover before resuming his demolition job. Nadal had another massage at 5-2 and he ended Thiem's ordeal on his fifth match point when the Austrian returned long.

Dejected but gracious in defeat, Thiem told Nadal and the Philippe Chatrier court that his extended record for the most men's grand slam wins at any single tournament was "one of the most awesome things in sport. Congrats. Bravo."

Thiem arrived in Paris in hot form, having picked up more Tour-level wins than any player in 2018 and beaten Nadal in the Madrid Open quarter-finals last month, snapping Nadal's 21-match winning streak and his run of 50 straight sets won on clay.

But beating an imperious Nadal at his favourite slam was too big an ask for the 24-year-old.

"To me it's still been two great weeks," Thiem told the crowd and his opponent.

"I still remember when you won here the first time in 2005. I was 11 years old, watching it on TV and honestly I never expected that one day I would play the finals here so I am still really happy."
