2021 Winston-Salem Open
- When: August 21-28
- Where: Wake Forest University Tennis Complex in Winston-Salem, NC
All Eyes on Pablo Carreno-Busta
Pablo Carreno-Busta travels to Winston-Salem as the man to beat. He is priced as the main betting favorite to claim the trophy, which seems fair, considering his recent success.
Carreno-Busta has recently made it to the quarter-finals of Cincinnati Masters, where he lost to Daniil Medvedev (1-6, 1-6). Just a week prior, he has won the German Open and has made it to the semi-finals of the 2021 Mallorca Open.
As the highest-rated player at the 2021 Winston-Salem Open (no.12), Carreno-Busta is expected to do well, although you have to feel a bit concerned about his performances on hard courts. He is 11/5 on the year and 20/10 across the last two seasons.
His career average win rate on hard courts is at 64.73%, and he has underperformed against weaker opponents on this surface before.
Nick Kyrgios and Marin Cilic As The Main Threats
Nick Kyrgios is priced as the second-favorite to win the 2021 Winston-Salem Open, even though he is ranked only 81st in the ATP Rankings. The always-controversial Australian tennis star will attend the 2021 Winston-Salem Open hoping to bounce back following iffy showings over the last few months, having failed to achieve any notable success outside of R3 at the 2021 Wimbledon.
What’s more, Kyrgios is 5/5 on hard courts in 2021 and 11/8 across the last two seasons. Regardless, he has proven before that he can do well on this surface, having managed 18/9 in 2019, 15/8 in 2018, and 27/11 in 2017.
Marin Cilic has recently made it to Round of 32 at Cincinnati Masters, where he lost to Andrey Rublev (7-6, 3-6, 1-6). Before that, the Croatian tennis player made it to Round of 32 at the 2021 Canadian Open and R3 in Wimbledon.
His most recent tournament title happened in June when he won the Stuttgart Open with a 7-6, 6-3 victory against Felix Auger Aliassime. Despite his relative success over the season, Cilic’s hardcourt record leaves a lot to be desired.
He is 6/7 on the year and 13/12 over the last two seasons. Like Kyrgios, Cilic has been far more efficient on this surface in 2017-2019, with a combined record of 44/26.
Marton Fucsovics Could Surprise
Marton Fucsovics is an outsider to win the 2021 Winston-Salem Open, but he has done well enough for us to have faith in him. The 29-year-old Hungarian player made it to the quarter-finals in Wimbledon, where he lost to Novak Djokovic (3-6, 4-6, 4-6), which was still an excellent showing from the current world no.37.
The biggest reason why everyone should keep an eye on Fucsovics is his fairly favorable road to the finals. Even though there are a few strong players who will stand in his way, the only scary opponent is Frances Tiafoe, who Fucsovics will likely meet in the semi-finals and should be able to defeat.
Fucsovics has also been showing solid form on hard courts. He is 9/6 on the year, although three of those losses happened against Andrey Rublev and his most recent one was against Cincinnati Masters quarter-finalist Felix Auger Aliassime.
There is a good chance we might see Fucsovics and Carreno-Busta clash in the finals, which makes Fucsovics a solid e/w bet.
