After the disappointed defeated yesterday, Casper Ruud has shown a poor performance against his rival from the Slovakia - Martin Klizan and he loses the game in straight sets. The next event which we will predict and make a preview is going to be between the players Roberto Carballes Baena and Tommy Robredo.
Both players are from Spain and this can be the tough game between them. Tommy Robredo never played before that in this competition and this is a new challenge for him after the incredible win against Joao Domingues, meanwhile, he lost the first set but after all, he came from the back and beat his rival in three sets. Robredo currently is in 149th position, while Baena is on the 103rd position in ATP World Ranking. Against each other, they have played just one game since 26th August 2017. Robredo is a solid and stable player, but he has e problem with the baseline.
Roberto Carballes Baena from the beginning of the season, he won 38 games and lose just 23 games on a clay. We expect the younger Spaniard rocket to surprise us in a tough game against the player who is in good condition as well. Robredo is a very dangerous player because he is unpredictable. We believe that he has all the chances to win а set. Our final prediction in this game is Over 21.5 Games at Bet365 with great quota 1.90 odds.
Unfortunately, Mischa Zverev was a retired in the last game against Peter Gojowczyk. Today have no large a selection of tennis games. That’s why we will choose a game from Challenger, Rome IV, Italy between Tommy Robredo and Joao Domingues. As we can see that the absolute favourite in this game is Tommy Robredo but we don’t think so.
The Portugal rocket - Joao Domingues have shown an amazing performance on a clay court, whilst the Spaniard rocket was not so convincing. From the beginning of the year, Tommy Robredo was involved in 39 encounters on a clay as only 20 games from all those games were won, while the younger Portugal rocket has shown more impressive and incredible performance than his opponent from Spain. Joao Domingues have played 42 games on a clay as 34 of them are winning with great confidence.
We cannot say that Joao Domingues is a clear outsider here because he has very good service movement his baseline game is perfect but one is sure that the Spaniard rocket will try not to lose this game with a difference. The game should be chased on + games handicap or over games. We prefer to play Over 21.5 games with great quota 1.92odds at Pinnacle Sports.
It has been an amazing first week of Roland Garros. Now we are heading to the second week, where great and epic games are expecting us. The first game for the day, which we are going to follow is between Tommy Robredo and Grigor Dimitrov.
Surprisingly or not, Robredo reached very easy this stage of the tournament after he had luck in each of the games he played. On the other hand, his opponent Grigor Dimitrov had a terrible games so far. In the last game between them Tommy Robredo won in three sets 1:2 (4-6,6-1,6-6). We do not believe that Grigor Dimitrov is fully recovered from that last game and he might feel a little bit tired. While Robredo had enough days to rest and to show the world what he is capable of.
Dimitrov is the favourite here and maybe he will win but Tommy Robredo is in good form after he crashed Donald Evans in first round in this prestigious ATP - 3:1 (5:7, 6:4, 6:3, 6:1), so we expect that the match won't finish in straight sets. If we abstract from this, we think that Robredo is not a bad player and if he has a day he can win against anyone. Of course, win would be too optimistic here, so we will search Robredo to take at least 1 sets.
The Portugal Open was an ATP and WTA clay court tennis tournament in Portugal. The event took place at the sports complex of Jamor in Oeiras, of which Estoril Court Central is the most prominent show court. In 2015 the tournament was canceled due to lack of sponsorship. A new tournament, Millennium Estoril Open, was created in its place, moving from Oeiras to Cascais. The 2014 Portugal Open was the last edition.
Tommy Robredo did already some great games and we can say that he is already in a good shape. Evgeny Donskoy and Evgeny Donskoy are rested for this tournament. Actually, the rest in the tennis is very important, because you see what is happening with Novak Djokovic right now. The rest is very needy for the professional tennis tour. We believe that Donskoy is not a tough player.
It will be really interesting to see how these two players are going to play this game. We think that Robredo will be playing very carefully and wise and he will not let his opponent make easy points. Donskoy took one win from their rival. This is it will be second head to head games between these two players. We are ready to expect beautiful game by Robredo and he have huge potential to win with big margin. That is why our opinion is Asian handicap for Robredo (-3.5 Games AH).
The game which we are going to follow today is the other game from the 1/16 round which is going to be played between Grigor Dimitrov and Tommy Robredo. Favorite for winning this game in the tournament is Grigor Dimitrov but the Spaniard is in an amazing shape at the moment and he will try to make the sensation here. Grigor Dimitrov is 12th on the ATP ranking at this moment while Tommy Robredo is 385th position.
Tommy Robredo will be looking to keep building his confidence. The Spaniard won on Monday against Stakhovsky with 2-0 sets. The Bulgarian showed us that he is ready to win the ATP Marrakech in Morocco. We think, Robredo will get at least a set here. Head to head results between those players are over 21 games as the last meeting between them finished with a close games difference.
Our prediction for this game will be over 20.5 games . Dimitrov will not disappoint his fans but Robredo will not do that to his Spanish lovers too. Game will start around at 14:20 (+2 GMT) and it predicts to be a very interesting and tough game.
