    Juventus has returned from a stoppage time. Today with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo I think he has the first reason for victory. Atletico have a difficult time at home and will be difficult to get away with from Turin
    JUVENTUS TURIN vs ATLETICO MADRID @@ JUVENTUS TURIN, odds 2.15
    Tottenham will be another team with Portuguese Mourinho in technical leadership, he even showed some evidence on Saturday. It has quality and if it can work more as a team, it will raise other racing and scoring. Olympiacos is not the best of the last and it is very difficult. I expect an open game with Tottenham to win and score goals in the match
    REAL MADRID vs PARIS SAINT GERMAIN @@ +2.50 Over, odds 1.55
    Very interesting battle between two great teams. They have quality offensive lines and we expect a game with many stages and goals. Due to attacks and poor defense of Real Madrid, I will bet on many goals

    It might be just a false speculation but 1) the fact that Medvedev and Zverev are both Russians, 2) Medvedev has the chance to stop his “best friend” Nadal, to whom he lost at least twice this year 3) Medvedev is not very stable currently, I think there is a big chance that Medvedev will not “try his best” to win tonight.

    Tsitsipas has made a great challenge and exhausted himself but NADAL has showed why he is the current #1 in the world by defeating him 6-7, 6-4, 7-5.  Therefore I will take TSITSIPAS to loose in the SF against FEDERER or THIEM - depending on the last R-R match - who is more rested;

    Taking the more motivated Nadal -2.5 vs Tsitsipas who has already qualified for the SF.  Nadal has to win to have any chance of playing the SF depending on the outcome of the last round-robin match. Tsitsipas should not be exerting himself too much in this match to reserve his energy for the SF.

    Berrettini +1.5 sets against Thiem at 1.83 Unibet.
    Thiem is very good recently, no doubt. However, after a exhausting game against Djokovic, I think he will take this game easier. He will take it easier because he has already qualified for the semis and because he might want to rest a little bit. They have already played twice this year (1:1) and Berrettini took at least 1 set in both games. Italian has nothing to lose so he will play relaxed and I expect him to take 1 set.

    Zverev to beat Tsitsipas at 1.77 with Unibet.
    Both of them come after first round wins and seem to be in shape. I think there will be a close game but the second year presence of Zverev on London courts (that fit Sascha's game according to his results) will should him a slight advantage.

    Novak Djokovic (-1.5 sets) to beat Matteo Berrettini at 1.61 with Pinnacle
    Right. As much as I admire Berrettini's heroic efforts from this season, he's unproven against the really top guys and he has the worst possible draw for the first round, as Djokovic will have to be in full focus with no qualification guaranteed and with every single set counting for something at the start of the tournament. That's why I think that there's some value even in such an obvious and public bet. No matter how you look at it, this is a must-win match for Djokovic - and chances are that he's going to grab the win without too many difficulties.

    ATP Paris. Wawrinka - Nadal
    Because:
    It's only the second hard-court match of Nadal since US Open. Nadal did not look very convincing against Manarinno. Wawrinka plays well on hard court and played many games in the last period. I think that Wawrinka has a good chance to take at least a set from Nadal @2.0 Unibet.

    Well, almost-the-last week is here. There are still the ATP Finals, of course, and the Davis Cup, but I'm not sure how popular the latter is going to be with the new format and the former have just a couple of matches per day, so yeah, this is where things almost come to an end this season. Enjoy and good luck!
    Marin Cilic to beat Hubert Hurkacz at 1.71 with Pinnacle
    Neither guy is in a particularly good form, but Cilic seems to be playing somewhat better nonetheless and he has a very sweet record against the (still) youngster, so I'm going with him for my first pick of the week. Moreover, the Paris conditions are quite specific and Hurkacz hasn't played in them before, so that's yet another thing speaking for the experienced Croat here.

    Pablo Cuevas 3.80 Pinnacle 5/10
    I like Cuevas here. He looked decent in R1, not clowning and joking vs. a guy he should beat without problems - and he did beat that guy without any problems. He served well and his groundgame was on point. Andy Murray is kind of a surprise to me. I can remember betting on Matteo Viola to beat Andy Murray and he really beat him. It was probably one of the worst defeats Murray has suffered in his whole career but to be honest i thought Andy Murray is about to be done. Now he's back with decent results on a decent level. He beat guys like Norrie, Berrettini, Londero and Sandgren. Losing to names like De Minaur, Fognini or Thiem is no shame either. I think we can expect him to be even better in 2020 with a decent camp and prep. I watched his first round encounter with local wild card Coppejans closely and i think Murray is a bit off this week. He had a tough time in Asia with a couple of really exhausting matches, he travelled a lot last few weeks, now his wife is getting a baby this week, he already told the media that he's playing in Belgium because of the fact he can travel home quickly. He definitely looked off in the first round, Coppejans had many, many chances to take the second set but was wasting leads all over again. I think Cuevas is a tough matchup for Murray right now. Murray will need to run a lot, Cuevas playing a good mixture. He's serving well, hitting groundstrokes very hard but playing also with angles. I think Murray will have to work very hard and i'm not sure if he can. He still has two big tasks ahead apart from supporting his wife while getting a baby: There is a Masters tournament in Paris, a big tournament and a good chance for him to get some points as usually the Top players not playing that well there because it's the last official tournament of the season. And second, maybe even more important, Davis Cup Final in Spain. I really think Murray will play Singles there. I know it isn't confirmed but GB doesn't have many options right now. It will come down to Murray, Norrie, Edmund or Evans. Considering Edmund is in really bad form right now and Murray beating Norrie recently i think the final decision might be Evans/Murray for singles. Anyway, i think Murray isn't at 100% and he might not be too sad if he loses early this week. To get some rest before he's heading into Paris and Davis Cup. I take my chance here at that price, i think Cuevas is a living dog in here.

    Kiki Bertens to beat Kaia Kanepi at 1.52 with Parions Sport
    This will be the 2nd meeting between these two players after the victory of Kanepi in two sets in Seoul in 2012 on hard. Since things have changed a lot, Bertens has climbed to the 8th while Kanepi seems stuck around the 100th. Last week on the same playing field in Linz, Bertens defeated Van Uytvanck & Doi before losing in the quarter-final against Gauff (the winner of the tournament). Kanepi has won her last four games without losing a set but we must not forget that her opponents were outside the Top 100 including a victory over abandonment. Last year Bertens lost to Sasnovich when she entered the competition and will probably want to do better because she needs a big week to reach the WTA finals in Shenzen.

    Kwon Soon - Pella
    Against my prediction, Kwon Soon succeeded to beat Gasquet. In my opinion, that happened because of the poor physical form of Gasquet. He played well first set and a part of the second but later, in longer rallies, he started to go from offensive to defensive more and more often.
    Kwon Soon looks good looking at the stats. This year he played a lot of games on hard court a won almost all of them. To be noticed that almost all of the opponents, excepting a few (Gasquet himself, Pouille, Londero) were either outside top 100.
    Pella does not look so impressive statistically. He played less hard-court games and his favourite surface seems to be clay. Starting with august, he played 12 hard-court games and won 6 of them. To be noticed that almost all the opponents were < top 50. He lost to guys like Basilashvilli, Careno-Busta, Schwartzman but also beat Goffin, Albot, Dimitrov.
    These two guys played against each other on hard court a couple of months ago and Pella won 2:1, taking last 2 sets 6:1, 6:2. I count on Pella's slightly superior quality and experience of games against better players. Pella to win @1.83 Unibet.

    Kwon Soon -  Gasquet
    Gasquet is not shining this year. After Cincinnati he couldn't get but 1 win (against Granollers) out of 5 games. He lost agains Thiem, Goffin, Paire... Before that he won several games agains Schwartzman, Bautista-Agut, Murray.
    On the other side Kwon Soon seems to do better statistically. He played and won more games, however, most of Korean's games were against lower ranked players. He still have some wins agains good players as Pouille, Millman.
    Considering that:
    overall Gasquet is a much more experienced player. Gasquet should be OK physically having not so many games played in the last period. Gasquet has to defend his semi-final points from last year. Kwon Soon is far away from home and had to fly almost 9000 km from Korea. I expect Gasquet to take this game easy or hard way. 1.67 at Unibet looks for me a very good price.
