Tennis


Its semi-finals day on the ATP Tour at Kitzbuhel, Austria and Los Cabos, Mexico and quarter-finals day at the ATP 500 in Washington, USA. At Kitzbuhel top seed and home hope Thiem is still on track to win his first title after beating Andujar (advised @ 25/1) in yesterday’s quarter-finals who served for the first set but was broken straight back and was a set up in the second set but was broken back again to lose the match 7-6 6-4. Thiem faces fourth seed NextGen Italian star Sonego for the first time and a place in tomorrow’s final.

The other semi-final is between the unseeded Ramos-Vinolas who is aiming to reach back-to-back ATP finals for the first time in his career after winning Gstaad last week and he will face Norwegian NextGen star Casper Rudd, who is aiming to reach his first ATP final, but odds are against him doing so as he trails the head-to-head 3-0.

Over in America’s starting with Los Cabos and top-seed and defending champion, Fognini is out after he lost to fourth seed and Atlanta finalist Fritz in the early hours of this morning. Fritz will face seventh seed Albot for the first time who is aiming to win his second ATP Tour 2019 title and second in total after winning Delray Beach earlier this year while Fritz will aim to reach his fourth ATP Tour final and lift his second career title this week.

The other Los Cabos semi-final is an all Argentina affair between second seed Pella and third seed Schwartzman and on form this season and the head-to-head Pella looks the best placed to reach his first ATP Tour hard-court final, sixth in total and second ATP Tour career title.

Finally, over in Washington top-seed and NextGen star, Tsitsipas is still on track to win his first ATP 500 title this week and fourth ATP title in total. He’s drawn to face tenth seed Frenchman Paire in the early hours of tomorrow morning for a place in the semi-finals and it should be a competitive encounter as Paire won their only previous meeting indoors at Metz in 2017. The other quarter-final from the top-half of the draw is an all unseeded affair between Lucky Loser Gombos from Slovakia and the controversial but ultra-talented Aussie Kyrgios and Kyrgios will hope to repeat his 2017 indoor straight-sets win in Marseille.

The two quarter-finals from the bottom half of the draw are between sixth seed Cilic and third seed Medvedev (advised @ 10/1) who are playing each other for the first time and hopefully Medvedev will keep hopes of making a profit on my outright selections this week alive. The other quarter-final involves a resurgent Kyle Edmunds who is seeded thirteen and he faces another unseeded player Gojowczyk for the third time after winning their two previous encounters which were both on hard courts at Beijing last season and Atlanta in 2017.
