It’s semi-finals day at both of this week’s ATP Tour grass tournaments at Eastbourne and Antalya. At Eastbourne, the semi-finals line-up is between American Taylor Fritz and third seed Kyle Edmunds and American veteran Querrey (advised Win @ 25/1) and Italian Fabbiano. It’s the first match between Fritz and British number one and third seed Edmunds and the other match is between Querrey and Fabbiano, who both impressed in the quarter finals, knocking out fifth seed Verdasco and sixth seed Simon respectively. Querrey won their only previous meeting at Wimbledon in straight sets back in 2017.
At Antalya, the semi-final line-up is between unseeded Serb Kecmanovic, who is contesting his first ever ATP semi-final and third seed Aussie Thompson (advised 8/1), who knocked out fifth seed and defending champion Dzumhur in the last round. The other semi is a first-time encounter between the unseeded young Italian Sonego, who impressed knocking out second seed and 2018 finalist Mannarino in the last round, and fourth seed Carreno-Busta.
If you’ve backed Querrey and Thompson, you may want to consider covering at least your outright stake on them by laying them on the exchanges and/or backing their opponents in the match bet markets.
