As several of the largest names will be on hand were going to see a star-studded field at the 2019 Western & Southern Open. On the mens side, well visit No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic and No. 3 Roger Federer. For Federer and Djokovic, its our very first look at them because Wimbledon. Is either a fantastic bet here?
August 12, 2019, * Odds taken
Djokovic is the defending champion at this occasion as he beat Roger Federer at the 2018 final 6-4. Surprisingly, it was his very first title in this time, and it is astonishing since he has been in total in the six times.
The concern is that Djokovic hasnt exactly thrived here of late. Yeshe got the win but has been absent in each of the 2 decades before, then he dropped in the third round lost in the final and dropped in the quarters. His album is in this tournament. He is tied by the 11 declines .
At exactly the time, nobody really is currently playing to the courts at the moment. He is 33-3 on hard courts since the start of 2018 (not adding indoor). Hes the player to conquer here.
Leaving apart the Big Three to get a minute, there are not many threats here. Dominic Thiem is the No. 4 seed however he is a clay-court specialist. Stefanos Tsitsipas is a using a shooter but a loss to Nick Kyrgios in the semis at the Citi Open and to Hubert Hurkacz within his very first match at the Rogers Cup suggests hes not a real threat.
Then theres Kei Nishikori, who lost at the Rogers Cup in his first match, Alex Zverev, who is far better on clay.
Out of the more shots, even a player such as Kevin Anderson is really capable of astonishing since he plays well on hard courts but hes been injured all year. Marin Cilic is an option but hes just 13-11 on the year. Who is there to bet within this tournament other?
This is an integral tune-up for the U.S. Open later this season, so Im anticipating DjokovicsA game . Hes been off and should be fresh.
Federer is a choice as hes won seven times to this event but hes much better on grass than courts. Hes 29-5 in his past 34 on the courts; hes 11-1 in his 12 on grass.
That makes with Nadal pulling after only winning the Rogers Cup on the weekend.
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
