As the action heats up, www.lagateraho.com takes a look at potential winners from today’s round of ATP tour games. Here are our favorite picks for the day:
ATP Barcelona, Clay
Emil Ruusuvuori vs Francis Tiafoe
Time: 7:00 PM IST
Fresh from his recent title win in Houston on clay, Francis Tiafoe heads into this encounter confident of picking up his first win in this match up. Despite the 2-0 head-to-head record in favour of Emil Ruusuvuori, the American might have the serve and all-court game to trouble the Finn. That being said, Ruusuvuori has always upped his game when facing Tiafoe.
Prediction: Back Emil Ruusuvuori to win a set @ 1.50
ATP Banja Luka, Clay
Damir Dzumhur vs Liam Broady
Time: 7:00 PM IST
Liam Broady was fortunate to gain entry into the main draw despite losing his qualifying match against youngster Dino Prizmic. He will be hoping to take full advantage of this opportunity when he faces the somewhat inconsistent Damir Dzumhur. Dzumhur will himself feel fortunate to have been given a wild card entry at ATP Banja Luka and will hope he can capitalize on playing on his favorite surface, clay.
We expect the more consistent Liam Broady to emerge victorious in this matchup.
Prediction: Back Liam Broady to win @ 1.80
ATP Munich, Clay
Quentin Halys vs Lorenzo Sonego
Time: 5:30 PM IST
This is the pairs first meeting and should definitely be an entertaining match. Sonego will be hoping to produce more consistency to be able to get past the solid Quentin Halys. Halys has made a solid start to the clay court season and picked up some big wins against the likes of Roberto Bautista-Agut and Doninic Thiem.
We expect Halys to be too strong for the inconsistent Sonego in this match up.
Prediction: Back Quentin Halys to win @ 1.91
