The ATP World Tour continues this week with three more tournaments. For us, we’ll be looking to continue to find some winners after nailing our Daniil Medvedev play last week at the Shanghai Masters. The three tournaments on this week are in Moscow (Russia), Stockholm (Sweden) and Antwerp (Belgium), so let’s get stuck into our best bets!
The first of three ATP 250’s on this week is over in Stockolm, Sweden, for the Stockholm Open. There’s a field of 28 playing this week, led by world #12 Fabio Fognini. He was solid at the Shanghai Masters last week where he was knocked out in the quarterfinals by eventual champion Daniil Medvedev. It was his best result in what’s been a fairly disappointing second half of the season. World #27 Grigor Dimitrov is the next highest ranked but can’t be trusted at all. The lack of top-end quality in this event means we can attack some double-figure odds and our best bet will be Pablo Carreno Busta from Spain. He was solid at the Shanghai Masters last week where he was knocked out by Dom Thiem and was a title winner at the Chengdu Open a couple of weeks prior. He’s a guy that beats all the opponents he should and that should take him a long way in Stockholm this week. Particularly like the odds on him to win his quarter but will also have a little play on him to win the title.
Switching our attention to the tournament in Moscow, Russia, for the Kremlin Cup. Once again, there’s a field of 28 playing this week although it’s a stronger field than in Stockholm with eight top 50 players taking to the courts. Leading the charge is none other than current world #4 Daniil Medvedev who’s on an absolute tear at the moment. The young Russian is making the final of whatever tournament he writes his name down for and this should be no exception. He was the champion at the Shanghai Masters last weekend, which was his second title run on the spin after losing the US Open final to Rafael Nadal in five sets a few weeks back. There are a couple of other young Russians who have had good second halves of the season in Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev, but neither of those guys can tie Daniil Medvedev’s shoelaces on current form. Expect Medvedev to take home some more silverware in front of his home fans.
The third and final ATP 250 tournament on this week is in Antwerp, Belgium, for the European Open. This is another fairly strong field considering it’s the week after a Masters 1000 event, with five top 21 players taking to the courts. The highest ranked is world #11 Gael Monfils from France, although he’s always a dangerous play due to his inconsistency on court. World #14 David Goffin is the next highest ranked and will have the home support on his side being from Belgium. He hasn’t been going that deep in tournaments recently, but his form is actually a lot better than it reads. In four of the last five tournament’s he’s played, Goffin has been knocked out by either Federer, Djokovic, or Medvedev, which is more than acceptable considering they’re the three of the top four ranked in the world. Note that none of those guys are playing in Antwerp this week, so we’re keen to ride Goffin hopefully all the way to a title. Interestingly, Andy Murray has been playing well the past couple of tournaments, and we actually wouldn’t be surprised if he went deep into the weekend. At around $9 it could be a fun play to follow this week.
