On the ATP Tour, the Cordoba Open in Argentina and the Dallas Open in the United States are both underway. The events both started on Monday with first-round matches, which continue on Tuesday. The fields in both tournaments are set up with 28 players, and the top four seeds get first-round byes.
Both of these events are ATP 250 events, meaning they are worth 250 points, 1/4th of what a Masters 1000 event is worth. They are the third tier of non-Grand Slam ATP Tour events, below the 1000 and 500 events, and as a result, the fields are smaller and without the biggest names.
MyBookie has ATP odds on all the tennis action for the week, so let’s take a look at Tuesday’s schedules in the Cordoba Open and Dallas Open.
Tennis Predictions: ATP 250 – Cordoba Open and Dallas Open
Top Seeds on Bye
The top four seeds in both events will not be in action until Wednesday as they get a bye in the first round and start playing in the Round of 16 at both events.
The Cordoba Open is played on clay courts in Argentina, and three of the top four seeds are Argentinian. David Schwarzman is the top seed for the second year in a row, with Francisco Cerundolo at No. 2 and Sebastian Baez at No. 4. Spaniard and defending champion Albert Ramos Vinolas is the No. 3 seed.
The Dallas tournament started last year and is played on hard courts at the campus of Southern Methodist University. Taylor Fritz is the top seed, with fellow American Frances Tiafoe as the No. 2 seed. Denis Shapovalov is the No. 3 seed, with Miomir Kecmanovic the No. 4 seed.
Keep an eye on Vinolas to make some noise in Cordoba, as he’s reached the final two years in a row. In Dallas, Tiafoe and No. 6 seed J.J. Wolf are coming off great runs at the Australian Open, while No. 5 seed John Isner and No. 7 seed Marcos Giron both reached the semis of the event last year.
Mmoh a Frisky Underdog
At the Dallas Open, American Michael Mmoh is a first-round underdog at +108 against Yibing Wu, -138. Mmoh made a run to the third round of the Australian Open as a qualifier and is off to a 3-2 start to the season, raising his ranking to 86th. Wu is 0-1 on the season and ranked 97th.
These two have never met on the ATP Tour. Mmoh, who beat Alexander Zverev last month in Melbourne, will have the backing of the partisan American crowd in Dallas and should move on to face No. 3 Shapovalov.
Thompson in a Good Spot
Australian Jordan Thompson started his season 0-2, including a four-set loss to J.J. Wolf in the Australian Open. Denis Kudla got into the AO draw as a lucky loser and won his first-round match before falling to Ugo Humbert. Kudla also won a singles match in the Davis Cup last weekend as the U.S. beat Uzbekistan on the road.
Thompson is the favorite here at -136, and he’s ranked 84th in the world to Kudla’s 92nd. Thompson has won three of their four matchups, including a straight-sets win in the final of the Surbiton Challenger last summer. Look for Thompson to make it four wins over Kudla and move into the second round.
Martinez Ready to Move On
In Cordoba, No. 7 seed Pedro Martinez is an underdog in the first round against Cristian Garin. Martinez is +101, while Garin is -126 in their opening-round match. On the season, Martinez has a 2-2 ATP record, while Garin is 1-2.
These two have met four times, and while Garin holds a 3-1 lead, Martinez won the most recent matchup. That victory came at the Miami Masters last year, in straight sets, and look for Martinez to get another win in the first round in Argentina.
Cachin Can Make Waves
The No. 5 seed, Pedro Cachin, is an underdog on Tuesday against qualifier Hugo Dellien in the Cordoba Open. Dellien won his way into the main draw over the weekend and is ranked 138th on the season with a 0-1 ATP record. Yet, he is -188 against the No. 5 seed Cachin who is +144.
Cachin is ranked 66th in the world and beat Dellien in the same round at this tournament three years ago, 6-1, 6-1. While both are looking for their first official win of 2023, Cachin has the experience and the talent to move into the second round.
