Andrey Rublev to win ATP Marseille at 7.00 with Unibet

I like how Andrey has been playing this week and he's already won his first title on clay two seasons ago and now he's experienced enough to make to the final of Marseille. There's just a problem along the way. He will have to beat Mikhail Kukushkin whom he's never beaten without a retirement from Mikhail. Mikhail has beaten Andrey on indoor hardcourts three times already so there's this pretty huge risk that Mikhail will beat Andrey in the quarter.

So if Andrey doesn't win the tournament it's because he got beaten by Mikhail in the quarter.

Stefanos Tsitsipas to beat (-4.5) Sergiy Stakhovsky at 2.04 with Unibet

Should be an easy win for Stefanos. Sergiy has been riding his luck to get to the quarterfinal and it's where it ends most likely with a loss by more than five games margin. Something like 6-2 6-4. What I seek here is the doublebreak by Stefanos and that is very possible that he can achieve, he's after all ranked 12 and Sergiy 100+ nowadays and it was a long long time ago since Sergiy even won a challenger title.

Irina Begu to beat Marketa Vondrousova at 2.38 with Pinnacle

Vondrousova looked pretty tired at the end of the match yesterday and she hasn't had a lot of match practice lately, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the fatigue catching up with her today. Begu is a quality opponent anyway, she's not likely to just roll over and not pose any resistance.

Mackie Mcdonald to beat Juan Martin Del Potro at 3.50 with Unibet

I like how Mackie played when he beat Taylor Fritz, he's got the game to go all the way in Delray this year. He's dangerous enough for me to beat JMDP.

Laslo Djere to beat Aljaz Bedene @ odds 2.10 with Pinnacle

We have detailed analysis for this available for free on the internet if you want to go digging for it , but I prefer not to advertise that service in here in repsect for the forum, and Czech Punter's guidelines.

Belinda Bencic (+1.5 Sets) to beat Petra Kvitova at 1.81 with Marathonbet

Kvitova has lost a set here against Siniakova, Brady and Hsieh (only against Kuzmova won in straight sets). Bencic has win here against Sabalenka, Halep and Svitolina so I think that she will have some chances against Petra. I have watched her against Halep and Svitolina and she's playing very solid and looks like the pressure is not affecting her.

Aljaz Bedene to beat (-1.5 sets) Laslo Djere at 3.40 with Unibet

I still think Aljaz has this great chance of reaching the Rio final. It's 3-0 for Aljaz in this matchup with two meetings on clay and Aljaz won both times in straight sets. I think there's clear indications it could happen again.

Stefanos Tsitsipas to beat (2-1 correct score) David Goffin at 4.20 with Unibet

This is a match where I think Stefanos is the deserved fav. But David has played well this week and can do some damage probably so three set match where Stefanos comes out on top seems not so unlikely.

Anastasia Potapova to beat Marketa Vondrousova at 2.48 with Unibet

Finally I think there's time for an upset in Budapest and it could be Anastasia who wins this match. Some upset should come in Budapest so why not this one? And I think the final could be an all russian affair between Anastasia Potapova and Ekaterina Alexandrova.

Anastasia Potapova to beat (-1.5 sets) Marketa Vondrousova 4.40 with Unibet

Got to try this one since both the final in Dubai went to three sets and the first semifinal in Budapest is now into a deciding set. Can't see this match lasting for more than two sets and Marketa has had her physical problems this week so I think there's some chance Marketa won't cope with this match. You got to be 100% to be able to compete and I predict Marketa isn't healthy enough for this so I'll take my chances with the russian in two.

Sadly there are no signs of sickness or physical problems from Vondrousova and if we add that she is now on a indoor courts record of 50-5 in front of the Potapova’s record of 13-7 the chances for her are nearly to zero.

Alison Van Uytvanck to beat Marketa Vondrousova at 2.50 with bet365

Both players have hard indoor courts as their best surface (Vondrousova has a 41-5 record and Alison has a 112-43) but I will take here the more experienced player who is also the better priced player (I expected this but not at this level). To be honest, I expected Alexandrova to reach the Final but Alison has win against her with an incredible comeback included (she was losing the 3rd set 5-2). I think that Alison has played against tougher opponents (Zvonareva, Swiatek, Kozlova and Alexandrova, especially the last one). The only player that has faced Vondrousova with a good record on this kind of surface was Blinkova and she put her in real troubles (Irina Begu is a good player but her best surface is clay, by far). I expect a close match and let’s see if Alison can win the title again (she won it the last year).

Laslo Djere to beat Felix Auger-Alliasime @ odds 2.27 with Pinnacle

Odds belief is reversed for this match.. I have seen third set of the Cuevas semi-final. Cuevas is not impressive at all, and making many unusual errors. His shots are not penetrating. Errors coming off the forehand, and one hand backhand exposed as a vulnerability. His movement did not look good also in my opinion. This will be a huge step in class to face Laslo Djere. This man has played spectacular tennis from what I have seen, and is tracking down many balls. He is redirecting them with large amounts of spin. Auger Alliasime will have trouble handling some of these shots, and Djere will be able to find Auger's backhand similar to how he dismantled Thiem earlier in the tournament. Young star is playing at a higher level than Dominic in the first round. But, Djere's level has been steadily rising each match as he progresses. As I mentioned these odds should probably be reversed considering the form Djere has been in during this tournament. The experience on clay is a big factor.
