13/14 breakpoints saved by Alex and he's looking horrible with a ton a of unforced. Only the serving is holding him up. Finally when he lost his serve there is no coming back for him as he's only had one breakchance in the hole match.

I'm going to say that Ruud makes all things in the world right and beats Nick. Nick will get frustrated at Ruud's ability to keep grinding and I'm banking on him having one of his Nick meltdowns. Obviously Nick on serve is top 10, arguably top 5. Ruud will have to break but I'm hoping he takes advantage of the one or two looks he'll get in the first set. Hence setting the Nick meltdown and tirade.

The problem with Ruud is he rarley beats anyone hes not suppose to. Looking at his results this season the only stand out one I see is demolishing Paire 6-1 6-1. Im guessing Paire had a meltdown in that match like you are hoping Kyrgios will. If Nick is motivated willing to fight, I can't see Ruud with much chance.

I really hope not I have $900 to win over 43K on a Nick to win Rome. I know it's a long shot but he's in the easier half of the draw and wouldn't it be like him to troll everybody and win on clay after he says he hates it.

Del Potro to beat Goffin at 2.35 with SportingBet

Due mainly to his lack of matches this year, Del Potro is the underdog against Goffin today. However, I can't take Goffin at 1.57 and think his win over Wawrinka is being over-valued here. Del Potro, despite losing last week, impressed me, even taking a set off Djere and nearly winning the match - not bad for a player who had just returned from injury.

Kyrgios...

Just when you think hes changed he does something like what he did today to prove what a joke he is. To top it off his comments about Verdasco and Djokovic are so hypocritical.. he is literally the guy that acts like  ‘I’m here, I’m so cool ' and ' cringeworthy'. Hope he gets some debilitating injury soon so i don't have to hear about another one of his antics..

I totally agree! Kyrgios is an absolut disgrace to the tennis world. He should be banned from tennis for at least 6, if not 12 months. He is not funny and he don't deserve to play the gentlemans sport.

Diego Schwartzman to beat Kei Nishikori at 2.40 with 888sport

I think Diego deserves a lot of credit for getting to the quarters and here he's up against Kei who had lots of problems last match when he beat J-L Struff. I think Diego has found his game on clay again after lots of poor performances, he's my favourite to get into the semi in this match.

btw @CzechPunter it looks like you were one week to early with Roy Smith to beat Di Wu since he did it in straight sets this week. So that's a pity but I think you were just unlucky on that one when Roy wins the week after as it showed that he acctually could beat the chinese but he just fell apart last week. To bad you don't know how well the guy can hold up from time to time, he doesn't seem to be able to string back to back wins togheter either. I don't think he has done that so far this season but this time he met Dudi Sela in second round so I think he's excused for that loss.

Dudi Sela to beat (-1.5 sets) Evgeny Donskoy at 2.65 with 888sport

Looks like I'm gonna pick Dudi in a good spot here. Evgeny has beaten two opponents in straight sets but he hasn't had it all to easy while Dudi also has beaten two opponents in straight sets but he only dropped 4 games, 2 per match. And we have the matchup where Dudi is up 2-0 on challenger level winning in straight sets both times so I think I'll go for Dudi in two here.

My system has Diego to win as well. I thought Struff was going to take it yesterday but he fell back towards the end. Schwartzman has been playing well.

Stefanos Tsitsipas to beat Roger Federer at 1.71 with 888sport

Stefanos could acctually accomplish this. He can beat Roger this time. He got a chance on clay and he's already beaten him on hardcourt. Reason why Roger won last time so easy was probably that Stefanos was a little fatigued so this time I think the odds are correct and the greek takes it.

Konta to beat Vondrousova @1.93 unibet. She gives very good performances last months and Vondrousova looked pretty torn in the game against Kasatkina.

I don’t know why Konta is underdog, both of them being very good this season.

Because it's clay, that's why Johanna Konta is the underdog.
