  1. Gael Monfils to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas at 1.80 with Bet365 I just don't see Monfils losing this week. He has been in terrific form, tracking down balls and making his opponents hit that extra ball. There is always a question mark with Monfils's temperament, but he has been amazingly mature this whole year. Tsitsipas has had a gruelling couple of weeks and I don't think he has enough in the tank to take out Monfils.
  2. Fucsovics played well yesterday and he was dominating Federer from the baseline, but failed the clutchness test. Borna will run Federer ragged. The only thing I am worried about is Borna's fatigue, but I would be pretty surprised if Borna doesn't win today.
  3. Alison Riske to beat Jennifer Brady at 2.05 with Bet365. Having watched Riske beat Brady pretty comfortably when they met in Doha earlier this year, I have to take this bet up at the odds currently offered. Brady seems to be in good form, but I feel that Riske is just a better player overall and should win this match-up more often than not if she plays well.
  4. Thank you! I was debating the same and decided to go with the set bet.
  5. Fucsovics to win a set against Federer at 2.75 with Bet365. I don't want to go into detail about this bet because I have already explained how vulnerable Federer looks these days. He has lost his aura and everyone thinks that they have a shot at beating him. Fucsovic has a solid ground game and he will be ready to pounce if there is a dip in Federer's form. Hurkacz to win a set against Tsitsipas at 2.25 with Bet365. I have to admit that I am not entirely confident about this bet. Hurkacz didn't have an answer to Tsitsipas's game in Marseille last week. I watched Hurkacz beat Nishikori and it was more of Nishikori mugging it around than Hurkacz actually earning the win, but I hope this win has given the Pole, the confidence to play well in the upcoming rounds. Tsitsipas has looked alright so far, I can see a bit of fatigue creeping in and this should give Hurkacz an opening to win a set. Basilashvili to beat Coric at 2.10 with Bet365. I can see that the odds for Bash have come down now. Have been pretty impressed with Bash, he has played well after that horrific loss to Brands at Sofia. It is always a gamble with him because he is so aggressive and there's a chance that his game might unravel at the hands of Coric, who is a solid defender. But I am still going to back him considering the fact that Coric hasn't really been at his best in this tournament and the fast courts in Dubai should really suit Bash's game.
  6. Felix Auger Aliassime to beat Pablo Cuevas at 2.62 with Bet365. Alright, I watched Aliassime beat Cuevas last week and he was pretty impressive. Cuevas has been playing pretty well and I still rate him as a slight favorite to take this match, but at these odds, I have to back Aliassime. Cuevas looked gassed out in the third set while playing Aliassime and if this match goes the distance, I would definitely fancy the chances of the Canadian.
  7. Verdasco to win a set against Federer at 2.75 with Bet365. As we all know, Federer is very vulnerable these days. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up losing to Verdasco here. Granted Verdasco has never won a match against Federer, this is his best chance to do so and I am sure he knows it as well. I have been noticing a pattern with Federer these days, he has found it difficult to close his matches out and there's moments during a match, where he plays like a complete mug. I am hoping there's enough dip in form from Federer for Verdasco to capitalise and atleast win a set.
  8. Mikhail Kukushkin to beat Borna Coric at 3.50 with Bet365. I smell an upset here. Kukushkin has been in pretty good form. I saw a couple of his matches in Marseille and he looked really solid from the back of the court. Yes, there's the fatigue factor with him playing the finals on a Sunday and going to Dubai to play his match against Coric on Tuesday but I still expect him to come out trumps against Coric who is really short on match practice. He was ousted pretty easily by Humbert in his first match at Marseille and he also has a losing record against Kukushkin. Gael Monfils to beat Marin Cilic at 1.90 with Bet365. Alright, this is Cilic's first match after the Australian open. I expect him to be a bit rusty. Monfils has been playing great. Cilic plays well on faster courts, but he is up against someone who is defending supremely well and that is exactly the kind of players Cilic hates playing against. Monfils also has a winning record against Cilic. I am a bit skeptical about this bet. I always have been whenever it comes to Monfils. He is not an easy guy to bet on, what with his frequent clowning. But I feel that he has matured a bit this year. Maybe Svitolina has talked some sense into him.
  9. Yastremska to beat Muguruza at 2.00 with Bet365 Yastremska has been in terrific form this year and has a positive head to head against Muguruza. She is yet to drop a set against Muguruza and I believe she has enough firepower to get through this match.
