2019 Mutua Madrid Open – Round of 32

Diego Schwartzman vs Marco Cecchinato

26-year-old Argentinian player Diego Schwartzman last played at the 2019 BMW Open in Munich, Germany from April 29 through May 5. He beat Benoit Paire in the first round 6-4, 1-6, 6-1 before losing to Christian Garin 1-6, 5-7 in the second round.

Marco Cecchinato also last played at the BMW Open by FWU. He had a much better tournament, making it all the way to the semifinals where he lost to Christian Garin. Because Garin beat both Cecchninato and Scwhartzman by close to the same score, we must assume the dog has a shot in this.

Tennis Betting Pick: Diego Schwartzman

Dusan Lajovic vs Laslo Djere

Dusan Lajovic didn’t get out of Round 1 in the last tournament he played, the Millennium Estoril Open in Portugal. Leonardo Mayer beat Lajovic 6-7 (3-7), 4-6. Lajovic will attempt to turn his form around against Laslo Djere on Monday.

Djere last played at the Hungarian Open. He had a fantastic tournament, beating Nikoloz Basilashvili 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 in the quarterfinals before bowing out to Matteo Berrettini in the semifinals. Djere has a shot, but Lajovic played in the much tougher tournament in his last. He gets the nod.

Fabio Fognini vs Kyle Edmund

Fabio Fognini heads into the Mutua Madrid Open off what might be his best ever performance in any tournament in his career. Fognini won the Monte Caro Masters after beating Alexander Zverev, Borna Coric, Rafael Nadal, and Dusan Lajovic.

Beating Zverev and Nadal in the same tournament is a big deal. He should have no trouble against Kyle Edmund, but oddsmakers feel Fognini takes a backward step. Still, his performance at the Monte Carlo Masters sets him up for at least a Round of 32 win.

Tennis Betting Pick: Fabio Fognini

John Millman vs Steve Johnson

Millman bowed out early at the Millenium Estoril Open. He beat Bernard Tomic 6-3, 6-0 in the first round. Then, Joao Domingues won the first set against him 6-3. After Domingues took a 2-1 lead in the second set, Millman retired.

U.S. player Steve Johnson hasn’t played tennis competitively since the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships in Houston, Texas, back on April 8-April 14. Johnson lost to Daniel Elahi Galan 3-6, 3-6 in Round 2. If he’s healthy, Millman wins this.

Tennis Betting Pick: John Millman
