The notorious unpredictable British weather intervened at this week’s ATP 500 grass court tournament at Queens yesterday as there was no play due to constant rain throughout Tuesday. This means there’s a backlog of matches and if the weather allows where in for a bumper twelve games today. There’s three British players in action starting with Wild Card Jay Clarke against French number one Pouille, Wild Card Dan Evans, who is one of my outright tips who won the Surbiton and Nottingham Challengers in the lead-up to Queens faces former top-ten star and seventh seed Wawrinka and finally, Kyle Edmunds faces the sternest test of the three against top-seed and world number six Tsitsipas.
Fourth and fifth seeds Medvedev and Cilic are already through to the second round as they played on Monday, third seed Del Potro will attempt to join them today against Canadian NextGen star Shapovalov, as will sixth seed Raonic against Italian Cecchinato and Stuttgart finalist and eighth seed Augr Aliasimme faces a tough test to reach the second round today against former top ten star Dimitrov.
There were no rain delays over in German at Halle and all the first round matches were completed and the second round starts today with just four matches, Fourth seed Cpric (advised 22/1) will aim to reach the quarter finals against Sousa from Portugal, German Struff (advised 28/1) will aim to achieve the same result against third seed Khachanov a will eighth seed Goffin (advised 28/1) against the unseeded Albot.
