We are in a bad losing series in the ATP Great Britain. We really do not know why there are such surprises recently, but we believe that after the bad period there will be the sun on our street. We are continuing following this famous ATP anyway and our next pick will be for today. Yesterday Grigor Dimitrov did amazing tennis against the USA rocket - Ryan Harrison. Meanwhile, we were wrong with our prediction, but the Bulgarian rocket beat his opponent in straight sets (6:3, 6:1).
As we mentioned, we continue to follow this British ATP. The game which we really liked for today is going to be between the players Feliciano Lopez and Stan Wawrinka. From the beginning of the season, Lopez did 4 wins and just one loss against Lucas Pouille, in three sets (6:4, 6:7, 5:7) on grass. This is the first game for this season for the Swiss rocket on grass. Today, we are expecting Lopez to be amazing as well. Because he is playing incredibly well on grass and this is one of the tours where he is performing well.
Anyway, today we think that the Swiss rocket will take this game, but it will be extremely hard and difficult. We predicted a win for Wawrinka but maybe in 3 sets or if we see 2 sets it is going to be very hard with one eventual tie-break.
Tomorrow will be the final round of Roland Garros. Prediction and preview between the big names of the world ATP tennis. Stan Wawrinka will duke Rafael Nadal on the epic battle of a tournament from the Grand Slam.
Yesterday, Stan Wawrinka did an excellent performance against Andy Murray and he really surprised us. To be honest, we expected that Stan Wawrinka will not be in form for this game. He struggled a lot during the game. The swiss rocket gave him no chances for something. Today, we are expecting Wawrinka to be amazing as well. Because he is playing incredibly well on clay and this is one of the tours where he is performing well.
Anyway, today we think that Rafael Nadal will take this game, but it will be extremely hard and difficult. We predicted a win for Spaniard rocket but maybe in 3 or 5 sets or if we see 3 sets it is going to be very hard with one eventual tie-break.
This year's Masters in Indianapolis gets it is epilogue in today is final game, where he will meet two Swiss with the desire to get hold of another prestigious title. Final of tournament in USA - Indian Wells on hard surface between Stanislas Wawrinka from Switzerland and Roger Federer from Swiss as well, starting from 22:00 (+2 GMT) on program this evening.
So this Swiss clash should be real exciting once again. We saw them this year on Australian Open clash between them and it ended in 5 sets (3-2 for Roger) and we believe that he will convince us again. However we will not gamble with it because the odd is kinda low on him.
Will rather try with over 22.5 games here, because I don't see it ending in easy sets, this should be a big battle, tie breaks are very likely here and in my opinion 3 sets. So this is like best bet if you ask me. We expect to see epic game in this final round. That is why we chose over games. Probably they have a chance to make a lot of games. For example, over 22.5 game.
The next game after the few unsuccessful games from the Australian Open is going to be between Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. This epic Swiss derby is one of the most interesting as the record is 17-3 in favour of Federer.
Interesting fact is also that all three wins of Wawrinka came on clay courts as the only one on a Grand Slam was in French Open 3 years ago. Anyway, this game will be completely different because after this game they played many games and Stan Wawrinka won three Grand Slam titles, Australian Open, US Open and French Open. Now the only trophy which is missing is the title in Wimbledon. We believe that this will be the only cell this season in front of Wawrinka, but this does not mean that he will not chase the win today against Federer for another Grand Slam final.
Moreover, he is playing amazing tennis and if his game is going fine, he will totally outclass Federer, who is very dangerous player, he is simply amazing but he is not that young and he might not have any powers left for this tough battle. We will go for Wawrinka to win here.
Our next pick for the year will be between the players of Viktor Troicki and Stan Wawrinka. This is a game from the ATP in Brisbane, Australia and there is no doubt that Stan Wawrinka is the the biggest favourite for winning this game, but there are some things which make us believe that he will have some problems in this game.
The first thing is that Viktor Troicki is usually making incredible beginning of the seasons. He is solid enough and and he is showing a good performance. While this is going to be a first game for Wawrinka for the new season and he even did not finish the last season with a win, after he played on the final tournament in London, but there he wrote down 2 defeats and just 1 win against Cilic which was incredibly poor win. Moreover, Troicki is some kind of a black cat for Wawrinka as in the past few games between them, the games are very matched and Wawrinka is winning difficulty.
In Australia, Troicki is playing amazing. We believe that he is feeling the atmosphere pretty good. He will have no problems in adopting the court and the conditions. Furthermore, already Troicki played one game here after he won in straight sets against Yoshihito Nishioka. It will be a tough game for Wawrinka and we are on the opinion that Stan, may lose a set here.
The second game from the final Masters in London which we are going to predict is between Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori. We believe that Wawrinka has a perfect chances here to make something as Djokovic does not look good right now, while Murray will be under great pressure after becoming number one.
Yesterday, Milos Raonic did an excellent performance against Gael Monfil and he really surprised us. To be honest, we expected that Monfils will not be in shape for this game as he missed the last month due to injuries and yeah .. he struggled a lot during the game. Milos Raonic gave him no chances for something. Today, we are expecting Wawrinka to be amazing as well. Because he is playing incredibly well on the Grand Slam and Masters and this is one of the tours where he is performing good.
We remember, last year when he beat Nadal in the group stage, this year, the group is tougher .. Nishikori and Murray are in the group and Cilic looks very solid player too. It will be hard but our favourites here are Wawrinka and Murray and they must take their games. On these odds, we will simply go for Wawrinka, whose chances look better.
Surprising or not we are not in a good form and we need to make something to change that. We will abandon the over/unders for now and we will stick to our previous strategy - final result winners and games and sets handicaps.
The first game with the new tactic is from the ATP in Shanghai and the game we liked most is between Gilles Simon and Stan Wawrinka. It looks like that Gilles Simon is again in a great shape after he took two very good games against Pablo Carreno Busta and Di Wu. Wawrinka is also in a good shape. He won the title in US Open and here he wrote one good with against the great British player Kyle Edmund. There is no doubt that since US Open Wawrinka will be pointed as favourite alongside with Djokovic and Murray to win the tournaments.
We remember that we did already one prediction about both players from Monte Carlo earlier this year. Then we went again for Gilles Simon but we were wrong, today we will try to make the same prediction as we believe that Simon will take one set. The game is on hard and on this surface, Simon is having advantage in the head to head games. After all, we need just one set, not to win the game.
Daniel Evans did the surprise in the last round after he eliminated the young German - Alexander Zverev. It was a tough game though and Evans used lots of powers but he managed to resist the German.
Now in the third round game he is going to face Stan Wawrinka, who eliminated Alessandro Giannessi with 3-0 sets, but the game was not that easy at all. Wawrinka had to play very long two sets one of them with a tie-break. Now against Evans, if he is playing like he played against the Italian, he will definitely have big problems. Actually, Evans can not only make troubles to Wawrinka, he can win the game as well. He realizes that this is the chance one in a life and he will got the maximum of it.
The bookmakers are underestimating a lot Daniel Evans. He is staked at around 7.00 odds. For us this is very good odds for the bettors who like to bet on the surprises. After all, we will go easily here as we will choose the handicap +2.5 sets.
Grigor Dimitrov and Stan Wawrinka are going to face in an ⅛ final game from the Masters in Cincinnati. So far both players had no problems against their opponents as Dimitrov won against Gilles Simon and Feliciano Lopez, while Wawrinka won against Jared Donaldson.
Interesting fact is that both players are very good friends and they were even playing on the double tournament here in Cincinnati, but due to different reasons they decided not to play their games and they dropped from the tournament on doubles. We can say that the winner here will have no the easy task to meet eventually Tsonga on the quarter-finals and Nadal on the semis. But of course, the tournament is long and we can see surprises. Another interesting fact is that Dimitrov is having an advantage over the head to head games against Wawrinka. Maybe for Dimitrov Wawrinka is a good opponent and he knows how to beat him.
Actually, this is not the only reason why we chose to bet on Dimitrov. At the moment Dimitrov is playing maybe his best tennis from the beginning of the year. Yes, he was eliminated in the first round of the Olympic Games, but his opponent was Marin Cilic which is one of the most dangerous player on tour. On odds like 2.80 we will definitely go and look for the surprise here as picking Grigor Dimitrov to win the game.
